Yellowstone Park Hotel

Montana, Wild West

The hotel

Virtually at the gates of Yellowstone National Park, this simple sanctuary has one of the best locations in town. With the park’s west entrance three blocks away, you’ll be a stroll from countless attractions, including Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center, Yellowstone Historic Center, and Playmill Theatre. They’ve included free parking to make venturing further a doddle too; and Yellowstone Park Hotel’s complimentary light breakfasts, often including warm waffles, are ideal for filling you up before you head to the park’s famous sights, like lower geyser basin and Old Faithful, which are just an hour’s drive away. Tearing yourself away from Yellowstone’s eye-defying beauty is made slightly easier by the hotel’s promise of a relaxing soak in its heated indoor pool and hot tub, or a treat from the hotel’s convenience store to enjoy in your guestroom.

Someone knows how to do hospitality! We were impressed with this facility. Decor, extras, and the basics all were above the average. We are used to Choice Hotels, so we were pleased to see the standards of this place were better. Even breakfast was special with burritos that were delicious.

We stayed here 5 nights while visiting Yellowstone NP. The hotel staff could not be more accommodating. Lorie was wonderful at the front desk upon our check in. Our room wasn’t ready when we arrived but she worked with housekeeping to get our rooms ready. She was also very helpful with places to eat and sightseeing tips. The hotel also has a person on staff named Mary who is a YNP expert who is on call to give excellent advice about visiting the park. The hotel provides really nice binoculars and hiking sticks for each guest to use. The ONLY negative comment I have is that the breakfast could be better Recommend Running Bear Pancake House for breakfast. Read less

This hotels really goes beyond.... bikes, good breakfast, environmental, nice pool, nice people and super nice and large room... with great pillows... just outside Yellowstone Natl Park. Only complaint... a little pricey given the kind of parking lot location.

This hotel met all expectations - nice-sized, clean room with a small fridge. Beds were comfortable, rooms were quiet at night. Included breakfast was surprisingly good. Hotel is just outside the Park, and there are several decent restaurants within a short drive.
