.. but it doesn't matter.

We're lucky to get a room here as we're unable to book really in advance. Front desk staff is very friendly and helpful - when we needed assistance with our next place on our trip reservation. Thank you.
We slept in new building on the right. Room was very nice, spacious. Only one disadvantage was/is that the walls are to thin and we heard every door slam, every word behind from the hallway. Earplugs recommended at this point. But I'd stay here again.

My family really enjoys staying in the condos at Pine Shadows. Our family has traveled to Yellowstone every New Year's for the past 10 years, and we have stayed at Pine Shadows for the past eight years. Condo's are spacious, clean, comfortable, and suprisingly warm considering how cold it gets in West Yellowstone in the winter. Grocery stores in town makes it easy to get all groceries and make meals for the family in the condos.
Along with our stay at Pine Shadows, we also rent snow mobiles, which they have on site. This makes everything conenient for getting a sled, and being able to sled right up to the front of our cabin.
We have always had a good experience with Chad and the staff at Pine Shadows. They have been accomodating an easy to work with for our room and snowmobile needs. Look forward to going back again next year.

Room Tip: Living room floor level of condos are very roomy, and usually have an extra set of folding tables an...

After searching for overnight stays in West Yellowstone among others I landed on the homepage of the Pine Shadows Motel. After seeing the pictures and comparing the price with other motels/hotels at West Yellowstone me and my wife made an online-reservation for 3 nights during the 3rd week of September 2013. Shortly thereafter our reservation was confirmed in a friendly way and we were curious if our decision was right.

The first impression of the area where the motel is located, was exactly like shown on the pictures of the homepage. Unfortunately we were 3 hours too early to check-in. Check-in time is 4:00 pm so we had to make a first visit to the town of West Yellowstone, where heavy rain and a hailstorm greeted us.
When we came back and the office was open, the check-in was uncomplicated and we were greeted in a very friendly way. The motel is owned by a young couple, who are very friendly and live in a building next to the area.

After receiving the key to our room, we went to the building where the motel-rooms are located. Entering the building, we noticed, that the interior with the bright hallway seemed absolutely new with a pleasing new smell. Same impression with the room. Many wood was used which gives everything a cozy ambience. Later the owner told me, that the building with the motel-rooms was built about one and a half year ago.

Our room was spacious, bright and very clean. The two queen beds were not covered with simple bedspreads but with very nice ones with embroidered elk motives, which immediately appealed to us and gave us a comfortable feeling. We had a very good 3 nights sleep in these beds.
There is a lavatory area which is separated from the bathroom with a door. Everything absolutely new and clean. Have to remember a long time back, since we had such a clean bathroom in a hotel/motel.

The outside area is absolutely well-kept and clean with two gas-grills, which can be used by the guests. Enough tables and chairs are present. The utensils like grillage etc. you can borrow at the office. One afternoon we used one of the grills and sat here during sunset, accompanied by many funny birds, who had their "dinner" next to us on the lawn.

One evening we also used the guest laundry, located in another building next to the area. Like everything else, the laundry is kept very clean and for a regular amount you can use it until 9:00 pm. All machines worked without failures.

The Pine Shadows Motel is located at the western part of West Yellowstone and in a very quiet area not too far away from the main city center.
A restaurant (Geyser Grill) is located a 2 minutes walk away from the motel. Been there one evening and our impressions unfortunately were rather mixed.
All in all in my opinion the Pine Shadows Motel is the best deal in West Yellowstone. Not too pricey for the region and an all new clean facility. Visit their homepage and make yourself an impression.

If we decide to make a second trip to the Yellowstone N.P. in the future, we will keep the Pine Shadows Motel in mind (if it still exists then).

The pine Shadows motel in West Yellowstone has everything you need: a TV, a small refrigerator and AC. The owner is friendly. We are happy to be here during the visit to Yellowstone Nation Park.
The only thing you need to notice is that the front desk is not always open (8am-9pm). You need to call them if you arrive late or leave earlier.

we stayed there 3nights, planned 4,but due to the shut down, we checked out earlier. The owner refunded the fourth night fees, which we really appreciate. Besides,we stayed at condo 106, the bed setting is exactly what we wanted, and the kingsize bed is super. we had a great time here, the sitting room is really large with a well-euipped kitchen. We recommend this place for shot stay!

No penalty for canceling room when National parks closed. Their contract said no refunds, but they didn’t charge us for the room. That was very nice of the property owners to do for us. If they treated us like this, their guests must be treated real nice. Will stay here next time we come to Yellowstone Park.

We stayed for several days the second week of September. This is a no frills place off the beaten path - but comfortable with a clean room & decent beds. We appreciated the guest laundry (and was surprised at how cheap the washers & dryers were...hurray!) Super quiet as we never could hear guests in other rooms - but know they were there as we met them in the hall. I would highly recommend this motel as we had an excellent stay!

Room Tip: The motel rooms are super quiet.
