“Quaint little stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2009

We picked this hotel because of the reviews here on tripadvisor. Most of the hotels in West Yellowstone were over priced, but not this one. The couple that runs the little motor inn is super nice and handle everything themselves. The rooms are cleaner than any I've ever stayed in. When you check in, they give you a little care package with granola bars, aspirin, all sorts of little sample pack stuff, and then walk you to your room. Most of the rooms are on the ground floor and are original little motel rooms. Ours was one of two multi-room suites build above a garage at the back of the motel. Our room had two bedrooms separated by a door, and one bathroom. The beds were very comfortable. There were only two downsides to our room: The closet was difficult to open and it was a little hard to find a spot to put our luggage, and the door into the other suite was very thin. When the other room was occuppied it was like being in the same room with them. We could hear every word, every cough, every sneeze. This was a real drawback for us, but I am sure this would not be the case if you stayed in one of the original rooms in the main level. The other downside is their wireless, which was quite spotty. We wondered if it was connected to their satellite system - it was cloudy while we were there and the tv and wireless access both seemed to go out at the same time.

This place is everything everyone has wrote and so much better! It is spotlessly clean, cozy, comfortable and perfect. They have upgraded the internet and is as good as and as fast as the high speed cable at home! Flawless internet now. We forgot an item when we left, we called from our next city and they knew exactly what we were looking for as soon as we called. They are mailing it back to our home address for us!

The owners welcome you as if you are old kindred friends and really go the extra mile. Simply put you can't go wrong!

I stayed at the Alpine Motel for 3 nights in June and I highly recommend this family-run motel. The owner, Brian, was very welcoming and personally showed me to my room, where to park, etc. My room was clean, comfortable, and had a mini-fridge, TV, and hair-dryer. He also gave me free packets of toiletry samples which was very nice. The office area had coffee, tea, and snacks available, which was a nice touch. The free snacks included granola, gum, and Gatorade drink packets. The rates were very reasonable-I paid $79 per night for my room. The town of West Yellowstone is pretty small, and the Alpine Motel is in an area where you could easily walk to restaurants, shopping, etc. The west entrance to YNP is literally less than a quarter of a mile away! I would much rather stay in this family-owned motel than a chain hotel like Holiday Inn, Days Inn, etc. There is a reason this motel is #1 on Trip Advisor and I hope the good reviews keep the owners very busy!! I will definitely stay here again!

The Alpine Motel is probably one the of the best motels we've ever been to. The owners, Brian and Patty, go above and beyond to make sure that their guests are comfortable and have everything they need - from the goody bags they give you at check in, to free ice daily, to the free granola & gum, to recommendations for dinner and breakfast, to fun stories from the park - you name it, they have it all! They are wonderful people who offer a great service!

We stayed from June 19th - the 26th. Though it is not fancy, the room was extremely clean and the bed super comfy! The shower is a little on the small side, but it was fine for us and worked out well - there were certainly no complaints. And the towels are the SOFTEST EVER!!! One thing I really liked was that the shower/toilet and the sink/mirror were on separate sides of the room - one person can shower while the other is getting ready and you don't have to worry about being right on top of the other person.

The location is perfect! The only downside, if you can call it that, is that if you have a larger vehicle, parking can be a little tough....but, Brian moved his personal vehicle, to make sure we had room. There were some nights we did park on the street right outside the motel (after a late return from the park), and that was fine, too, as West Yellowstone is a safe little town and we were able to park right in front of the office.

We will definitely be back to the Alpine - as far as I'm concerned, there is no reason to stay anywhere else in West Yellowstone. Truly an awesome experience!!!

Just a note to let anyone know that is visiting Yellowstone National Park, that The Alpine Motel is the place to stay. Brian and Patty could not have been any better host. The rooms were extra clean and comfortable. Thanks for a great time.

We spent one night at the Alpine Motel in West Yellowstone. The owners Patty and Brian were very accomodating. They made sure we had everything we needed and offered suggestions for dinner and breakfast. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The towels were the softest in our 10 day vacation. Would stay there again anytime!!!

The Alpine Motel in West Yellowstone deserves all the praise it has received.

From the moment we made our reservation to the time we checked out, we were treated very respectfully by the owners Brian and Patty. Even though they were busy preparing the motel for the start of the season, they were always smiling, friendly, and attentive to our needs.

Upon our check in, we were presented with his and her welcome packets. There was always apple cider, tea, and coffee in the lobby, as well as baskets filled with candy and packs of Granola.

The amenities were basic, but the room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and well maintained throughout our stay.

Our experience at the Alpine Motel was so pleasant that we recommended the Motel to several travelers whom we met on our way back home, that were headed to Yellowstone.

It was hard to leave the warmth and hospitality afforded us by Brian and Patty and if we visit Yellowstone National Park again, our path would lead us back to the Alpine Motel in West Yellowstone.

Shine on!
