“Clean and Friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

The Motel has been completely remodeled since we last stayed here years ago. Chad and Mallory are the friendly couple who own and manage the motel. They are very helpful at all times. The only downsides were the phones in the room have been out since Mid-June and still not functional when we arrived on July 10th. The other is the walls are thin and you can hear your neighbors every move. The motel does have a quite time from 10 pm to 7 am so it is usually not a issue if everyone cooperates. The room was very clean and had daily maid service. It's a great location close to good dining and 5 minutes from Yellowstone Park.

Thank you so much for the kind words. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and that the fishing was pretty good. We got the in phone system back up yesterday. Thought about following suit with many of the motels here in town and just doing away with it, but not everyone traveling has a cell phone, so figured better not. It has become something people are accustomed to, even here in West Yellowstone. Sorry if that was at all an inconvenience to you. Hope to see you folks again. Best wishes.

We've been on a 13 day roadtrip, which means staying at many different motels and trying to keep within a budget. After calling some local motels in the area, I found this one for a great price. It's a few blocks from the main street/strip in town with all the shops and restaurants. It looked decent enough from the outside, even though the sign made it look a little "dated". We stayed in one of the motel rooms. As soon as I stepped inside, it had a new feeling and smell to it. Room looked like it was recently remodeled. Very clean and comfortable.

Check in was also very fast and the couple in the office (not sure if they are owners) were very nice and helpful. Took time to show me local map and point out some good areas to see in Yellowstone. I would highly recommend this motel!

Thank you very much for the kind words. I am glad that we could accommodate you with your lodging needs while you travel. I am very glad that you found everything to be satisfactory. Mallory and I strive to make sure that we provide the best possible service to each and every guest. We have the motto that everyone comes as strangers and leaves as family. Our sign is definitely dated. We will be getting a new one this year. Our goal was to update lodging and then move on from there. Thanks again for all the kind words and we hope that your travels are safe.

This was our third trip to Yellowstone and we've stayed at Pine Shadows every time. It's close to the west entrance of the park. We've stayed in both the condos and the hotel. Rooms are clean and have plenty of space. We checked prices of other hotels in West Yellowstone and this is the best deal in town. We love owners Chad and Mallory - they are friendly and committed to giving great service.

Room Tip: Book ahead, especially for weekend stays.

Thank you so much for the kind words. Your group has been a constant reminder to Mallory and I why we decided to get into this business. It has been such a please having you (and all the Garys) stay with us over the years. Safe travels to you and hopefully the whole group can make it back again some time. Thanks again for all the support that you have shown our family business.

It has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. It was great for us (3 adults, 5 teenagers).
Full kitchen, with pots, dishes and even salt, pepper and sugar.
Very clean, spacious.
Initially, my sister had a room at the adjoining Motel, but when we saw how big the condo was, we asked Chad if she and her son could give up the Motel room and stay at the condo with us (to bring the total to 3 adults and 5 teens). Chad graciously agreed.
The location is great for access to Yellowstone.

As i said in my title, it's a great place to stay, West Yellowstone is small and everywhere is in walking distance. We only stayed 1 night prior to going into the park... We booked a King Size room, it was super clean and well presented. Has a fridge to keep the beer cool, heating/air.... Staff are super nice, accommodating and very helpful. I'll be returning to this place, hopefully in winter to take advantage of the sledding.

Thank you for the kind words. They mean so much to Mallory and I. We try our best to make sure that each guest leaves our place and our town with a smile. Hope to see you this winter for some snowmobiling. Even if you don't ride a Ski-doo. Thanks again.

We love this place! I think we have stayed a total of four times now, and the condo/cabin really is perfect for having our parents go too. The condos are well stocked, always clean, and very big. You will probably want to drive the few blocks over to main street with kids, but I am happy to do this to have the bigger space for such an affordable rate. We always use the grills outside too. Chad and Mallory are the owner/operators, and they are as nice as you could hope for. Thanks for always taking such good care of us!

Mallory and I wish to thank you for the kind words. It has been a pleasure having your family stay with us in our condos over the years. It means so much to us when we are able to start recognizing names and faces. Seeing happy return guests is the main goal in this business and I am glad that you feel we are worth coming back to. Thanks again.

Thank you for kind words Barrett family. Glad to have been able to make your trip wonderful. You are a great crew and we hope that you are able to spend more winters riding with us. And thank you for supporting us with all the HiCountry and Ace Powder Guides gear that you purchased. Not to mention the Avalanche Gear. Really makes us happy to see people take avalanches serious. Thanks again and hope to see you all this up coming winter.
