The hotel

For most the location of Gray Wolf Inn & Suites would be enough: just 2 blocks from the west entrance of Yellowstone National Park, you’re minutes from its famous natural attractions. But that’s not stopped the owners giving the inn a $1.4 million makeover, with everything from the rooms to the swimming pool getting a fabulous facelift. Welcoming guests all year round, so you can see the region in every season, the inn’s spacious rooms and suites are popular with families. The complimentary parking means road trips are easy, although many West Yellowstone highlights are within strolling distance, with Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center just over the road, and Yellowstone Historic Center and Yellowstone IMAX Theatre 2 blocks away.

Good motel with clean rooms and good beds. We used the underground parking. We did laundry in a clean laundry room with four washers and dryers, and it was free. Eric was very nice at the front desk. Snacks were provided for afternoon munchies. We enjoyed the fire pit out front.

We are very impressed, especially for the value of the hotel. We arrived in a blizzard and were able to check in 3 hours early. The staff was very friendly and provided great information. Coffee, tea, juice, milk, chocolate milk, fruit, and dry goods are available all day. The pool, hot tub, and sauna were spotless and very inviting. There are even pool noodles and toys for the kids. The room is newly remodeled and once again spotless. The laundry room is new and free of charge. Best of all, there is underground, heated parking. So, we will not be spending our morning scrapping off the foot of snow that is falling outside or even preheating it. We are above and beyond thrilled with this hotel. Read less

We stayed a week at the hotel for a snowmobiling trip and have a suite. What a great option, it had everything we need. Space to spread out after a day on the trails, pool and hot tub where great. But the best part was Eric at the front desk, his customer service, knowledge of the area and recommendations where so great. Thanks Eric!!!

I stayed there for 5 nights everyone from the staff was friendly and helpful. Nice sized clean room. Loved the heated garage as it snowed every day I was there. Got stuck in the snow twice leaving with my rental car and the staff helped me get back on the road. Great stay and great value.

Stayed here with our dog during a very cold spell in Yellowstone and have to say the Inn is excellent. It is super comfortable, very friendly and great access for our dog. The rate was very fair and no pet fee. The beds and are super comfortable and everything is immaculately clean. Most of all we loved the extra touches like the 24 hour cookies and hot drinks in the lobby (and the cookies are really good). Their efforts to reduce waste and encourage recycling are some of the best we've encountered. Local knowledge is also excellent. Definitely recommend this Inn. Read less
