Not bad but very expensive.

This felt like a very large hotel, probably because it was fully booked. There was plenty of noise from the plumbing in other rooms and through the adjoining door, which was locked, but we could hear what the other guests had to say all night. The room was large because of two king beds. The refrigerator and microwave must have been afterthoughts since they were next to the door and hard to use in that location. The location is good, though there are two other hotels in a similar location. The free breakfast was ok. The worst are the fabricated eggs but every hotel seems to be serving these, what they call omelets. We mostly did not eat the breakfast. If I go again, I will try to stay somewhere else. For about $270/night, I expect close to perfection and definitely not noisy.

To enjoy seeing Yellowstone most, get up early and get to the park by 7AM at the latest. Getting around, seeing the animals, it's all better early in the day! We loved the park! The geysers and the animals are spectacular.

A "Beary" Good Place

The hotel was close to the entrance to Yellowstone, so if you weren't staying in the park, it was quite convenient. We stayed 2 nights and went into the park both days. Cute atmosphere with a "bear" theme! Breakfast was included in the price of the hotel, and it was good and plentiful. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub after being in the park all aday.

Great location close to Yellowstone Pk

We were sightseeing in Yellowstone National Park, this hotel was very convenient to the west entrance. The staff was helpful and friendly to work with. Wifi availability was a plus. The room was spacious and comfortably. Breakfast each morning saved us time in our busy days.

Recommended

The hotel is < 1 mile away from the west gate to Yellowstone in a little town with gas, groceries, restaurants and a movie theater. Yellowstone is big, but for an outside the park hotel, this is the best location. The room is good-sized, with sufficient counter space, refrigerator and microwave. It was clean and comfortable. Pillow-top mattress was comfortable, though I wished for 100% cotton sheets. They offer indoor pool (weather outside is unpredictable) and jacuzzi. They also provide a continental breakfast with hard-boiled eggs, make your own waffles, a pancake machine, which was broken. What could be better: - They offer wifi which is horribly slow. << dial-up. - Sheets not 100% cotton, somewhat squeaky as you turn. - Not cheap, but reasonable for the location. - Some muffled noises from a hall, a block away, not really too bad, e.g. compare with NYC.
