White Buffalo Hotel
Ranked #36 of 39 Hotels in West Yellowstone
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Parking was great, staff was super friendly. The breakfast was really good as well. Highly recommended. The only negative was that the wi-fi there was terrible, though if you're going to West Yellowstone to be online, you're doing it wrong.

I had a great time at the hotel. I wanted someplace clean and safe to sleep between trips into Yellowstone. It was minutes away from the entrance and any shops or restaurants I wanted to go to were within walking distance. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I really enjoyed the breakfast. It was great to be able to be able to eat and then head straight to the park.

Although I didn't come with children this time, I liked that that they showed complimentary kids movies at night. That and the pool at the hotel and park across the street gives more options to entertain kids for no additional money (which is a big deal on vacations).

I will definitely stay there again!

We stayed at this hotel on Saturday, July 20th. We had two rooms and 5 in our party. The price was very competitive during this VERY busy peak Yellowstone season. I was actually surprised that we were able to secure two rooms with less than a week's notice. Parking was good and the hotel sits across from a park, so it's nice to sit outside and not have to be facing another hotel.

I wasn't sure what to expect before we arrived since this is an older hotel. I was plesantly surprised! The lobby area is decorated in a Western theme and is very welcoming. The front desk clerks were friendly, despite our late arrival (10p). I was also pleased that each room included 2 full HOT breakfasts. As are most older hotels, the rooms were VERY spacious and included a mini-frig, coffee maker & microwave.

The beds were decent, as were the pillows. Not top of the line (really can't expect that) and the mattresses adequate. Enough for a good night's rest. The bathroom suprised me the most! Even with hotel overhauls, the bathrooms usually remain the scary part. Not here! The tiled bathtub surround's grout was clean as was the rest of the bathroom. The best part for me were the fluffy towels! Hotel towels are usually scratchy and thin...but these weren't.

Breakfast was available from 7a-10a and it was GREAT. Fruit cocktail, yogurt, granola, 4 dry cereals, two options for scrambled eggs (with and without ham), bacon, sausage, pancakes, french toast, biscuits & gravy, toast & cinnamon rolls. I think there might have been more, but I can't remember. There was coffee, tea, milk, and two juices available as well.

We didn't use the pool, but it looked clean and inviting. They also have a HUGE hot tub...nearly the size of the small pool. It appeared that the deck was in decent shape as well.

I would definitely stay here again and next time, I hope to be there long enough to enjoy the pool and a nice walk around town.

We were staying at another motel, but, because there was no breakfast offered at our motel, they recommended eating at the White Buffalo. There was a $9 breakfast buffet that was awesome. It was very extensive - eggs, bacon, sausage, French toast, potatoes, pancakes, cold cereal, toast, coffee, orange/apple/cranberry juices. The staff were very good at making sure it was topped up and hot. Also, the waiting area in the front of the hotel was very nicely done up with a lot of wood work. It was very clean and inviting. A block off of main street.

This hotel fit the bill for our trip to Yellowstone. They provided a hot buffet breakfast. The only issue was the bus-full of people that arrived for breakfast both mornings. Staff was friendly and helpful.

We stayed one night at the White Buffalo and were pleasantly surprised at the HUGE rooms, the cleanliness of the property, and the great selection at the breakfast buffet. They had everything from cold cereal for the kids to oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, granola, French toast, biscuits & gravy, bacon, sausage, etc. Our kids loved the pool and hot tub and we loved the proximity to the entrance of Yellowstone. The staff was helpful in making recommendations of what to do and where to eat in town. We would definitely stay here again!

We arrived at 2:00 pm and was told we could not check into our room until 3:00 because the computer would charge us for an extra day. The receptionist was less than friendly, however when we did check into our room they called to see if everything was ok. We told them per previous comments we expected a refrigerator in our room. We were told "sorry, we have an employee refrigerator you can use". Wi Fi was as slow as dial up & kept booting us off. Rooms are spacious, very few channels on t.v. and breakfast was included. Good location.
