“Nice!”
Reviewed 30 March 2011

We were on our way home and we made it this far the first night. Nice! Friendly! staff. Large rooms that were clean with AWESOME beds. Decorated in a woodsy feel. It was a nice place. Wish we could have stayed longer. Loved the fact we had an outside door . Breakfast was Ok. Breakfast is always a plus!

Thank you for your comments. We're very happy to hear that you enjoyed our hotel. You were actually one of the first guests to try out our new Simmons Pillow Top beds that we just installed in every room. We're so happy to hear that you noticed the difference. We hope that you will have the opportunity return to West Yellowstone when the park is open and will choose to visit us again.

This was our second time at the Kelly Inn and we enjoyed it immensely. The staff was very friendly, courteous, attentive, and concerned about our comfort. The breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of items to choose from and the setting was most comfortable.
The room was large and spacious and the bed was most comfortable. Only problem was there was an outside door which let in a great deal of cold air and the fact that it was the middle of the winter we were awakened early in the morning by snowmobiles in the parking lot. However, we took that as going with the territory and weren't upset at all by the activity. We will definitely stay at this motel again in the future!

We're so glad to hear that you enjoy staying with us. Those first floor rooms with the outside doors are generally reserved by the snowmobilers and pet owners in winter but they certainly can be noisier with dozens of sleds parked just outside. If you don't need the outside door we could recommend a very quiet room on the third floor for your next visit. Just call us direct in advance and let us know your preferences and we'll be happy to reserve your room location before we fill up. Thanks for choosing to stay with us. We hope to see you again this summer.

Hi,
I wanted to commit on the excellent accommodations at the Kelly Inn. We were their to partake in the snowmobiling at Yellowstone Park in Feb of this year. We found the location was great. Yellowstone Adventures was down the road several block as well as a reserve for Bears and Wolves which was across the street. I loved the hotel amenities of our private outdoor access with an electric pole at the parking space to hook n our 'electric head bolt heater for the truck. As we were experiencing heavy snow and cold it was greatly appreciated to be able to have that benefit for the truck to keep it warm. The staff was always helpful and pleasant, much like a family atmosphere among the employees at Kelly Inn, I would recommend it to anyone and will return one day.

Thank you for letting us know how much you enjoyed your stay with us. We have had an outstanding winter for snowmobiling and cross country skiing here in West Yellowstone. We're happy to hear that you were able to share in the fun. Thank you for choosing the Kelly Inn. Those outside doors and the electrical outlet poles at each room are some of the many reasons our hotel is so popular during snowmobile season. We hope that you will have the opportunity to visit us during the warmer seasons as well. The roads to the park open for wheeled vehicles April 15.

Had the pleasure of staying at the Kelly Inn West Yellowstone in February on our way to a winter tour of Yellowstone NP. We were welcomed by our hosts Don & Sally Hill and treated royaly. The room was clean, quiet and well furnished. The continental breakfast was very good. We will stay there again. When we asked about restaurants our hosts recommed a small place called Sydney's which was outstanding. The overnight in West Yellowstone added a wonderful experience to our winter adventure.

Thank you for your gracious comments. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and were able to view Yellowstone Park in winter from the comfort of a snow coach. That is an adventure that most people unfortunately never get to experience. We hope you will return again in the future and visit us again. Spring and Fall are also excellent times to visit Yellowstone when crowds are smaller, the wildlife is abundant and the scenery is outstanding. Hope to see you soon.

We were unable to arrive the night we planned due to ice crossing the park. The hotel staff were very understanding and did not charge us even though we were late calling in. The hotel is comfortable, a warm cozy place on a November night. My daughter and I drove from NY to Idaho and made several stops but we really enjoyed the Kelly Inn the most. We are returning May 14 with family to enjoy spring in Yellowstone.

Sorry for the late reply but we just noticed that this review had been posted long after the stay and slipped into the older date sequence. We appreciate that you came all the way from New York to stay with us and were sorry to hear that you had to suffer through so many delays. Although our cancellation policy is firm we always allow exceptions for verified uncontrollable situations such as you experienced and were happy to accommodate you. We hope you will have the chance to visit us again in the warmer seasons when conditions are more favorable for such a long trip.

We stayed in this hotel on our first and last nights of a trip into Yellowstone. The rooms were a little worse for wear--bathroom door wouldn't close completely, missing lightbulb in lamp, some smashed crackers on floor from previous guest. The hall was noisy. On the plus side, breakfast was good, and location was good.

Thanks for sharing your comments about your recent stay. We're sorry to hear that your stay was not 100% positive. We will certainly address these specific issues with the housekeeper involved. We tracked down your room and did find the lamp unplugged but could not find anything wrong with the bathroom door. We are concerned that we may be missing something that might affect the next guest. If you would be so kind as to E-mail us and explain the problem in more detail we would certainly like to resolve it. We appreciate that you chose to stay with us and hope that you will give us another try on your next visit.

good location, fairly new hotel. Great staff...very friendly and helpful. I was having kidney stone problems, they looked up phone numbers and directions to two different hospitals for me. Allowed us to leave our car in their lot while we took a snow coach into yellowstone for a couple of days. Very good continental breakfast.
