Gray Wolf Inn at West Yellowstone

Montana, Wild West

The hotel

For most, the location of Gray Wolf Inn & Suites would be enough: just two blocks from the west entrance of Yellowstone National Park, you’re minutes from its famous natural attractions. But that didn't stop the owners giving the inn a $1.4 million makeover, with everything from the rooms to the swimming pool getting a 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 two blocks away.

Amenities

  • Swimming Pool
  • Hot tub
  • Games Room
  • Internet Access

Where is it

Only 2 blocks from west entrance of Yellowstone National Park, opposite Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center and just 2 blocks from Yellowstone Historic Center and Yellowstone IMAX Theatre. It’s also 3 blocks from Branch Restaurant & Bar, and a stroll from a convenience store. The area offers great hiking, skiing, and sightseeing at the park and Gallatin Forest.

We’d stayed at The Grey Wolf Inn about 10 years ago. Happy to see it so well maintained and updated. The room was large, comfortable and well-appointed.

We’d stayed at The Grey Wolf Inn about 10 years ago. Happy to see it so well maintained and updated. The room was large, comfortable and well-appointed. And loved the shampoo, conditioner and soap dispensers in the shower! No small bottle waste! Breakfast was good and snacks during the day were a hit with the husband. Cannot say enough about the caring and helpful staff (Laura-hope I have that correct and Kristen especially). I unfortunately took an ice fall that required a doctor. Laura found an open ER, gave excellent directions and followed up to see all was well. Kristen was exceptional the following day, making sure all was well. We had to cut our visit short but hope to return in the Spring. Read less

Our stay was like leaving our own home each day to visit Yellowstone. The staff were AMAZING...helpful, friendly, and efficient, almost like family. Everything in the lodge was clean, in working order, and well maintained. Our breakfast each morning was always ready on time, hot was hot, and cold was cold. Fruit was fresh, and utensils, plates,… Read more

Everything in the lodge was clean, in working order, and well maintained. Our breakfast each morning was always ready on time, hot was hot, and cold was cold. Fruit was fresh, and utensils, plates, etc were well stocked. Tables were kept cleaned up, and trash was quickly eliminated. Someone was always at the desk for assistance, and if someone even looked like thay had a question, the staff was right on it! Read less

We just visited Yellowstone for the first time, we really had a great experience with Laurie at the front desk helping us modify our original reservations with a third party co. The room was very clean and comfortable, loved their added perks like freshly baked cookies in the afternoon and smore's for night time!! We took the free town tour they offer one evening which gave interesting history tidbits. Great location to the park and every shop or restaurante you might want. Highly recommend this and will return if we get the opportunity!! Read less

Love this hotel! A nice change from no perks inside Yellowstone lodges. Hubby said we should've stayed here for the whole Yellowstone visit instead of breaking the stay. Free breakfast, which was more than sufficient to fuel us for the day at the park. Bonus point is free drinks, snacks, and fruits in the breakfast place available all day. Also at night you get free smores kit that each family member can use at their fire pit outside the lobby. Really fun highlight of our day, after long hikes in YNP. My kids loved their amenities, food and pool. You don't even have to bring your pool toys, they have noodles and balls that you can use. Hubby loved their sauna and hot tub, which is very convenient for adults to use while watching the kids at the pool. I loved the free washer and dryer. You can buy a packet of detergent for $1 or bring your own. Our room was large for family of 5 and had two comfortable queen beds. The hotel has underground parking, so hubby has a peace of mind parking our car there. One thing to keep in mind, the hotel is small compared to others, so during peak season (i.e summer), I'm sure it won't as comfortable because it'd be too busy and crowded. We went in mid September, so it was nice hotel when it's not fully booked. Just have the right expectation, and enjoy the stay. We definitely will come back if we go back to YNP again. Thank you Gray Wolf and staff! We're very pleased with everything! Read less
