“I will definitely stay here again.”
Reviewed 30 August 2011

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and will definitely stay there again. It is centrally located, reasonably priced and very clean. That being said, my favorite part was actually the friendliness of the owners. Brian went above and beyond to make us feel welcome! They provide hot drinks, toiletry sample bags, snack samples and above all, a sincere welcome rarely found when traveling. Although we had booked during peak season and got the smallest room they have, it was more than adequate. I really enjoyed my stay!

Room Tip: We were only staying one night so we opted for the smallest room which includes a queen bed and is d...

There are not enough good things to say about this place.

First off the owners are "Super" friendly and helpful. Brian took the time to show us every little detail of the room, including use of the TV, and ensure fridge was up and running as well. Brian even walked us down the road to show us his recommendations for food in the area, while he was en route to the grocery store to get supplies.

When we needed some more ice for our coolers they happily brought up a bucket full of ice to get us by. They have nice treats in the lobby, including Apple cider, including sugar free variety.

All the little things about this place make it absolutely amazing. I will stay there again, and again, anytime I am in the area.

The owners, Brian and Patty Watson, are two of the nicest people you'll ever meet. Brian's friendly smile and bubbly personality are a welcoming preface to the nice experience in store. Upon your arrival, he provides you will all kinds of goodies and nice packets of toiletries to sample. There's all kinds of tasty treats in the office, too, along with ice and coffee when you need them. Patty's attention to detail is strikingly apparent, and the care and attention she gives to the rooms is immediately noticeable. The very nice soaps, shower gels, conditioner, and body lotion is neatly displayed, along with a nice razor and deodorant sample on the sink in the immaculately clean bathroom. The beds are so nicely made a Drill Sergeant would be proud of her work. There is simply no nicer place to stay in West Yellowstone and no nicer people to meet anywhere. I highly recommend the Alpine Motel and can't wait to spend some time there again.

Room Tip: Simply Splendid in Every Way!!!

We stayed at the Alpine Motel for four nights while visiting Yellowstone NP and Grand Teton NP. Brian and his wife run a two person operation and they do an excellent job. There is coffee in the lobby from 7:30 AM to 10:00PM along with other goodies including candy, moisturizer and various other hot drinks. The rooms are in two rows with a driveway/parking lot between them. This arrangement is perfect for bikers since you can park outside your room. Each room has a window AC unit, which is unusual since many motels in this area don't have AC at all. Our room had two double beds with a TV that had good cable TV. Free Wifi is available and our room (#10) had good reception. My wife was really impressed by the cleanliness of the room. Our room had a 3/4 bath (no tub). Our room had pine plank paneling and was decorated in a cabin decor.
The only negatives that we experienced were the thin walls. We counteracted it by taking the AC off Econo mode and put it on cool, which meant that the fan ran continously drowning out the noise from the adjoining rooms.
One other problem was the temperature changing in the shower, it would jump from just right to very hot without warning.
All in all, after 17 days on the road and staying in 10 different motel properties, the Alpine Motel was our favorite and we appreciated the owners personal involvement in the motel's operation.
We would stay there again in a New York second!

We came here on holidays because of all the raving reviews & we can confirm that this is certainly your best bet if you're looking for a decent place to stay just a few miles from the West Entrance of Yellowstone NP.

The welcome was very cordial, the room was extremely clean and the rates are fair.

Highly recommended!!

ps. We had dinner in the Wild West Pizzeria (sizzling hot wings, generous pizzas but the service was a bit reserved), and breakfast in the Running Bear Pancake House (friendly service and the stacks are big...).

This motel is a very nice place to stay in West Yellowstone : clean, quiet and comfortable rooms, excellent location near the west entrance of the national park, and a warm welcome from the owners. We were there for three days during a three weeks road trip in the States, and it was one of the best places we stayed in. Definitively to recommend!

We stayed at Alpine Motel for one night on our way into Yellowstone Park. Brian welcomed us warmly and even walked us to our room to show us how to work the air conditioner. We have never experienced hospitality to exceed that of Brian and Patty's.

The rooms are modest but quaint and extremely clean. I mean really clean. I used to clean houses, so I pay attention to the details. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the incredibly soft towels. My teenage boys wondered how they got so soft-- nothing like the crispy bleached towels in other hotels. It was also very quiet, and we experienced no disturbances through the night.

If you are looking for a very clean and accommodating place to stay, then you have found your lodging. Obviously, this is a popular place to stay, so make your reservations several months in advance. We usually stay at the Hilton brand hotels, with new furnishings and flat-screen TVs, but we were more than satisfied with the Alpine Motel and look forward to future visits. Thank you, Brian and Patty.
