When we decided to go north in mid-November, before the blizzards made it more difficult, we happened on a great find. Pretty much in the middle of nowhere, there are quaint and clean little cabin-rooms that hark back to the sixties. Two comfy single beds, a tiny but well equipped kitchenette, gratis basic breakfast and very accommodating hosts. Only down side might be the lack of chests/drawers to stow your clothing if you happen to be staying for three+ days. While there is a dearth of motels between Casper and Yellowstone, and this one might not be considered a destination resort, I would definitely recommend a trip any time of year -- when it's not storming. It appears that quite a few vacationers visit this location during peak season and the proximity of other families could cause a noisy stay. However, if you are an early/late fisherman or a fall hunter, look no further! Across from the resort there is a conservation area which houses 900 big horn sheep. The srrounding area is home to wolves and even grizzlies. If you persevere you might even catch a brown trout on the property of the motel and trailer park.
There's a well stocked fly shop "downtown," Marlow's, and fly fishing guides should you need some help with local conditions.
