Nice family owned hotel. Clean, updated, good beds and great staff.
Walking distance to the Discovery Center, Train Museum and loads of
shopping. Breakfast was adequate with premade cheese omelets, Danish,
cereals and biscuits with gravy.

Nice people. Suggested a good place for dinner. Very comfortable beds. Decent price for the area, but don't get your expectations too high. Breakfast was just a carb load for the day. My wife could not eat anything offered.

Room Tip: It is always good to carry your own pillow...

Spent one night here and enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and provided great service. The room had plenty of room and was very clean and quiet. Was able to get a great nights sleep here. The morning breakfast was about average for most hotels. They did have omelets, and bicuits and gravy. This place probably provides the best value for your money in West Yellowstone. Probably 2 minutes driving time to the park entrance. Another advantage is that you are only 1/2 block from downtown. You won't go wrong staying here.

To start off, I'm well aware that lodging in the Yellowstone region is expensive as it is in most small mountain towns. That being said, I wasn't quite sure where my $150 a night was going. The Brandin' Iron Inn certainly fits the bill of a good motel with lower rates than most places in West Yellowstone, but given what was offered I think about $110 a night would be more suited.

The Good:
-The location is great, it's about a 2 minute drive to the park gates
-The location is very quiet at night
-There are laundry facilities available and a hot tub if you need to relax
-The rooms are a good size for the price and were quite clean (save for the large spider and moth in my room)
-Breakfast is included and the rates are competitive for a clean room in the area

The problem:
Even though you won't spend much time in the room if you plan on hitting up the park, it would be nice to have gotten more out of the room at the time. For the single bed room there's no microwave in the room so I had to walk all the way to the other side of the motel to use the breakfast room microwave. They advertise that there is a fridge in the room, and there is, but it's a tiny little fridge about the size of a microwave that looks like it's from the 80s. I brought some frozen dinners with me but it was a waste of money because the tiny little freezer in it was frosted up and unusable. The breakfast was far from what you'd want to get you going in the morning. There was bread for toast, tiny little bagels about the size of a mini-donut, sugary pastries and defrosted pre-made waffles to be toasted. There's sugary cereal to choose from and some omelette's that look like they're pre-made and defrosted as well. For the price I expected better breakfast options (at least a make your own waffle maker would have been an upgrade). For healthy food there was only Raisin Bran. The only fruit available was sliced peaches (from a can swimming in sugary syrup).

I suppose if you're just looking for a place to sleep and you plan on eating out then you can't go wrong with the price, but if you're planning on staying for then a few days I'd recommend putting out another $50 or so and staying elsewhere and at least get something more out of your money.

We took 2 of my family to see Yellowstone Park and chose this motel because of decent ratings and price. It was a very spacious room with 2 queen beds. It was clean, and since we had a room at the end was also quiet. Staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: This motel was located in West Yellowstone-just a short distance from entering the park.
