“Nice hotel for the money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2009

We stayed at the Yellowstone Lodge for 8 days and enjoyed our stay. I chose it specifically because it was reasonably priced and had an indoor pool and hot tub. My daughter loves to swim and we make sure our hotel has a pool whereever we go. Unfortunately the pool water was extremely cold. With all the hiking we were doing every day, we did get alot of enjoyment out of the hot tub. Basically we would take a quick dip in the pool when we got too overheated in the hot tub!

The room was clean and pleasant. The extra sink and mirror outside of the bathroom was a lifesaver, as three adults and one child shared this room! The room was a little crowded for the four of us, but we didn't spend alot of time in it.

'The continental breakfast was wonderful. Fresh baked waffles, hard boiled eggs, and the standard juices, bagels, and donuts. Some fresh fruit would have been a great addition. We bought bananas at the grocery store & took them to breakfast one morning. We were almost mobbed by the other guests!

Overall I would recommend the Yellowstone Lodge as a good home base while enjoying Yellowstone.

  • Liked — the breakfast and the hot tub
  • Disliked — the indoor pool was too cold for swimming

We stayed here for two evenings at the beginning of the winter season meaning that there were very little people at the hotel.

Upon check in, the front desk guy was nice if not a little bit lost. We tried to asked him about some snowmobiling options but we found it better on the internet ourselves. But he was accomodating and friendly.

The room was clean and very large; your typical budget hotel. The only real annoyance was the shoddy wireless internet. The daily cleaning was thorough and they even tidied up a bit for us somewhat slobs.

The hot tub was perfect after a freezing cold day of snowmobiling. Like I said, it was quiet so there were very few people to bother us. The towels by the pool / hot tub were a little shoddy (super scratchy the size of a tea towel).

They offered a free continental breakfast which actually had quiet a few choices (more than some of the chain hotels). The fireplace in the lobby was cozy.

  • Liked — Large, clean room, indoor hot tub
  • Disliked — unreliable wireless internet
  • Stayed December 2008, travelled as a couple

We didn't realize how busy W Yellowstone would be when we unexpectedly decided to make it a stop on our trip. The rates were not exciting but it wasn't horrible- until we saw what we were getting for the money. The hotel had a creepy office feeling with an unbelievable amount of flourescent lightng, everywhere. The carpeting was torn at every seem throughout the hotel. The room was very barren and empty feeling, which could have been a good thing, if it was comfortable. Unfortunately, the emptiness didn't lend to the cleanliness. There were bugs in the bathroom each morning. The beds were typical and uncomfortable. The room size was decent so we had enough room to use an inflatable queen size bed. The shower was very low and had a whimpy spray stream. The seating in the breakfast area was limited and very busy. The food was heavy on the starch, although it seemed pretty typical of the continental breakfast menu. The worst part was that this was a very pet friendly hotel, and there were a lot of dogs. If this hadn't been the only place left, and now I see why, when we booked, we wouldn't have booked it. We did leave early because we just didn't feel very clean or comfortable staying in this hotel. Coming from my very red-neck husband, that is saying something. Yikes!

  • Liked — The sink/vanity outside of the bathroom.
  • Disliked — Cleanliness of the hotel in whole.

This was the only hotel left available with one room that we could find at the last moment. Here are the pros:
-A good sized room
-clean
-LOVED the two separate sinks (one outside the bathroom and one inside)
-Breakfast choices were pleasant enough
-elevator available
-good amenities

Cons:
-Shower head is a bit outdated
-the usual thin sheeted beds

  • Liked — separate sinks, breakfast, amenities
  • Disliked — the shower and bed sheets

This was a great place to stay in a very expensive town. The manager on duty was super and put us in two connecting rooms. The rooms are super clean. The pool and hot tub are inviting, and the property is two blocks from the Grizzly and Wolf Country attraction. We walked from one end of the town to the other and did not get in the car until we drove out of town. Forget the hotels on the main drag - go with this one and save some cash.

Living at Yellowstone lodge was a very good experience. It was very clean and the staff were very polite and very very helpful. Anyone visiting West Yellowstone then Yellowstone lodge is the place to live. Have a huge parking, mini fridge, coffee maker and a very nice breakfast in the morning.

Stayed at the Yellowstone Lodge for 2 nights as part of a tour of Canada and America.

Overall this is a reasonable hotel. Fairly well located on the outskirts of West Yellowstone. Good sized clean rooms. Buffet breakfast included in the lobby area.

The main drawback for us was the lack of restaurant or bar within the hotel as we arrived fairly late after a long drive and the last thing we wanted was to go out looking for somewhere to eat. We never did find a decent restaurant in West Yellowstone although most of them were very busy it seemed that most people wanted `fast food'.

One other issue for us was that none of the vending machines in the hotel seemed to work - only wanted a bottle of cold water but couldn't get one without going onto the main road shops.

West Yellowstone is well situated for touring Yellowstone Park and was extremely busy while we were there in late June.
