Best in the West of Yellowstone
Posted Jan 18, 2017
This location is probably one of the nicer hotels in the area. The rest of the hotels look like ghost towns. Considering that it's winter time, most of the neighboring hotels were likely closed for the slow winter season. Location of the hotel isn't dead center in town but everything is within a 3-5 minute drive or a short walk. The entrance to Yellowstone National park is a 10 minute walk down the street. It's no 5 star resort but it does the job.
The rooms were clean and equipped with a tv, fridge, and microwave. The beds were decent size and comfortable, the heater worked and the hot water was steady. Not much to complain about. The thermostat for the ac/heater unit is on the wall, don't try and mess with the actual unit itself, you can press all the buttons on there and it won't make a difference. Room service also does a very good job. The staff of the hotel is nice and helpful without being annoying.
The free breakfast buffet is what makes the price worth it. You get something different every other day. The eggs are switched from cheese egg omelets, to west egg omelets, to scrambled eggs. The meat is either bacon or sausage. They serve breakfast burritos every other day. No pancakes or waffles, but you do get toast and biscuits with gravy available. There's a selection of fruits, cereals, milk, muffins, and Danishes. The muffins and Danishes are individually wrapped and available all day. There's also a hot water dispenser and cocoa packets to make hot chocolate.
