“Stay only if you have to”
Reviewed 21 September 2011

I stayed 5 nights here in Sept. while photographing Yellowstone. The hotel is old and in need of repair. The dead bolt on the door didn't work and the window screens were torn and falling off. There is no WiFi even though they said they had it in the lobby, but they were working on it. On the plus side the room service was good. There are plenty of places to stay in West Yellowstone, only stay here if it's the only place left.

Room Tip: Ask for one on the first floor. They were the ones that seemed to have more room and fridge and micr...

No Wifi
No Hot tub or pool
No Breakfast
No working AC in rooms

There was a closet in my room that was half open and it exposed all the breakers and cable tv connections for the entire hotel, what a safety issue!

We booked 3 rooms and the ac did not work in 2 of the rooms and being it was August it was miserably hot all night and none of us were able to sleep.

No wonder they had a vacancy when no one else did, it was a pretty sad place, starting with the outside. Actually the room itself was not too bad, considering the outside, but I felt a need to strip the beds first and make sure there were no surprises. Very very strong disinfectant odor. No coffee for the in room coffeemaker, finally convinced the young man at the desk to give us some, he did not want to, and he had no idea where the icemaker was. Lesson learned, book ahead in West Yellowstone. If I had it to over again, I would have gone with a trustworthy chain hotel.

The staff was very unhelpful; didn't even know where the ice machine was! Carpet in room was filthy dirty - just not a nice place to stay. We stayed in Jackson Hole the next night at a lodge for way less money and the room was a HUNDRED TIMES better with friendly staff.

Yellowstone is a Very busy tourist town. Getting a reservation is essential. This motel was not really pretty but it is in walking distance to everything in the small town. The room was old and kind of dingy. The bathroom was the knd where you'll lose your knees if someone opens the door. The tub shower worked but nothing more. Sheets were clean and no weird smells or bugs or anything. Boy at front desk was helpful and knowledgeable. Free hot buffet breakfast was located at sister hotel on different street which made the price and room better. Overall it did the trick and paying more than $150 per night hurts so I would stay there again because you are only sleeping.

Staff is the most unhelpful group of people I have ever met. The hot water in the shower didn't work and then was scalding hot. The tub backed up during the shower, cutting it short. The front desk was less than helpful and finally sent "maintenance" (some kid in a ball cap) who disappeared off and on over the course of two hours. The problem was never fixed, they left their tools on the bathroom floor with a half torn apart completely useless tub/shower. My wife had to shower in another room (luckily we were traveling with family), there was hair on the pillow cases and the couch was broken. If I had to do it again I would stay in my tent before ever coming here!!!
Stay FAR away from this horrible hotel.

AC not working ( which make you not able to sleep at all), not enough parking, bathtub drainage not working, bathroom ventilation sucks, rooms are so dimmed , the manager and staffs there do not give a dang about what we complained and I can go on more. DONT EVER STAY IN THIS HOTEL IF YOU WOULD ACTUALLY WANT TO SLEEP DURING THE NIGHT. I like to give a negative 5 stars ...
