“Exceptional Lodging for a Very Reasonable Price”
Reviewed 9 October 2009

A family owned motel just outside Yellowstone National Park (I chose Alpine Motel as other Tripadvisor members consistently rated the Alpine Motel Number 1 for lodging in West Yellowstone and I was not disappointed). The owners were always available and provided excellent recommendations for activities in the park, outside the park and around the West Yellowstone Montana area. Coffee, teas, apple cider, cocoa, candies, gum, other snacks, wi-fi and miscellaneous health and safety goodies were always available and provided at no charge. Stay here if you need a nice reasonably priced room - I met many international folks who were equally impressed.

If you want, to meet the friendliest people in Montana? If you want the best service in Montana? If you want great value for money? Then you must stay at the Alpine Motel, Brian and Patty are the loveliest couple you will met, and you have to have a Warm apple cider and a few chocolates offered in the foyer. They make you feel like you at home. Cant wait to go there in the winter.

As other Trip Advisor reviewers have said, this motel is simple and hardly luxurious, but the owners have done everything they can to make it comfortable and altogether pleasant -- and they have succeeded admirably. Everything is spotless, and there are little touches that you'd never find at a large chain motel.

Our room, which had two (very comfortable) queen-sized beds, was very large, and had a refrigerator and desk, excellent lighting and electric sockets galore. The wi-fi was reliable and fast (and free).

As an indication of the popularity of the Alpine, it was the only motel in town that appeared to be full during this off-season period.

We booked a room there because the reviews here were all good about this place.

And they should be, because we liked it very much.
The rooms aren't that special but the beds were good.

The couple who owns the place was trying to make the stay as pleasant as possible.
This is service as it should be.

Thumbs up

We booked the Alpine because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. There was a bed and beakfast feel to the Alpine with a wonderful host couple. They did everything to make us feel at home. The room was charming and took us back to an earlier time. We loved it!

We were in Yellowstone at the end of the season, and many of the motels in West Yellowstone had vacancies. Not the Alpine Motel! And that must be because, as other travelers have written, Brian and Patti are tremendously helpful and friendly. They even wrote to us in advance of our trip to let us know a road had closed in case we wanted to adjust our itinerary. The motel is perfectly situated, within walking distance of everything in town. The rooms are simple, cabin-like and spotless. (These two innkeepers do all of the cleaning themselves!) The owners escort you to the room and demonstrate all of the amenities, and they provide a "welcome pack" of toiletries and snacks. They make dinner reservations and are happy to share their knowledge of the area with their guests. They must truly deserve the break they get when they take their own vacation in the winter! I'd be exhausted!

The Alpine Motel is a revamp of a 50s style motel, modernized to include internet, cable TV, etc. Brian and Patty are owners and managers - they do all the work themselves, and are always on hand with friendly help and advice. They're very flexible, and really make guests feel at home. We couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in West Yellowstone.

Rooms are comfortable, parking is at your door, and most things West Yellowstone has to offer are within a few blocks' walk.

Only current drawback - closure of Yellowstone highway between Madison and Norris makes a day trip to Mammoth or Norris very time consuming (3 + hours one-way). Talk to Brian or Pattie, they'll give you a straight scoop.
