The rooms very nice for the price and nicely located within a short walk to many restaurants and gift shops. It was also super close to the West entrance to the park. The bed was very comfy and the WiFi worked really well. The only issue I had was with parking. The lot is small and if you get back from the park late, good luck finding a spot close to your room.

Well kept rustic inn, great value and close to the main strip. The rooms are very tidy and very wilderness based. The bathrooms are surprising clean and was pleasantly surprised in how well the wifi worked. Parking is right outside the rooms, so handy

Room Tip: Stayed on the ground floor, I should recommend the top floor as you get noise from the top

Here's a motel that tries to provide what a traveller needs. The rooms may be small but it provides a fridge, microwave and assumes two travellers so two suitcase racks which are so rare in USA accommodation of any level. Reasonably central in town although a bit claustrophobic with low ceilings. Walls a bit thin so ablutions being carried out elsewhere, or (if on ground floor like us) overhead guests walking around, easily heard. Staff friendly and helpful. No breakfast or wifi provided (the former not necessary although the price dictates it should) and the latter almost a necessity in this day and age. Room clean, bed needs an update soon, shower a bit squeezy but generally it's what you'd expect from this sort of property.

Room Tip: Second floor to minimise noise disturbance from other guests.

Very well equipped but really not worth the (high) price. The staff was very friendly and helpful but the manager, Ms. Smith, on the other hand didn't even provide basic information about the places around ('Ask at the Visitor Center' and 'You can do anything you like') and she was rude to us when we were thanking one of the employees. She even intruded in our room while we were talking to the employee and reprimanded her in front of us. We also had a serious argument about the rate. Our credit card was debited for the total amount of our stay well in advance of our arrival – normally we expect to make a downpayment and then pay the rest on arrival, or rather at the end of our stay. The second greedy attitude here is that they apply 'dynamic rates' (we would say 'despe-rates'): when the place is booked (almost) full for a night, the rate you pay gets higher. We paid a certain amount for the first night, and a higher one for the next two nights, because on these nights, the hotel was almost full. We found this very strange, since the opposite often happens: you pay less per night when you stay longer. We found it unacceptable that we paid more for night 2 & 3 that for night 1 (all in mid-week). This procedure was not mentioned when we booked, only the total price was shown, and we took it for granted that the 3 nights had the same rate. The discrepancy only came to light after we got there.

Next time I visit this will be the only place I stay. Rooms are clean with 'like home' feeling. Check in was quick and friendly welcome. Don't pay more at the chains. You get the feeling they really welcome & value their guests here at Moose Creek Inn!

There is nothing inexpensive in West Yellowstone during the summer, especially the hotels. After checking TA I found this to be one of the higher rated ones with a "reasonable" rate. We stayed upstairs in the main hotel in a king room. The bed was comfortable and the dresser had plenty of room to unpack. The bathroom was small and the shower even more so, but if you simply need a place to crash after spending all day in Yellowstone it is fine. The front desk people were exceptionally friendly as well. Our only real problem was trying to find a parking space up front if we came back too late. All in all it was a good experience.

The hotel is located at west Yellowstone which is very close to the Yellowstone park and for itself is a nice touristic place full of shops and restaurants. We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in a queen bed room second floor. We found nice and helpful people at front desk. The room was clean but very small (the smallest room we have been in this trip). In room, simple wooden furniture, no closet, one chair for 2 people, one table, a microwave, a tiny fridge and a coffee maker, all very densely arranged. The bed was comfortable. There was no breakfast but there was coffee available in the lobby. Stairs to the second floor a little steep, made of metal and not very comfortable to climb with a big suitcase. The hotel price is high compared to what the hotel offers and this is probably due to the hotel's location and season (July) most hotels in the area are highly priced also for this reason.
