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.

Friendly staff, clean rooms, comfy beds. We enjoyed the s’mores and the indoor pool was a nice break from our long days in the park. Breakfast is a bare minimum continental - nothing much to fuel your morning. We didn’t feel comfortable opening the curtains because there was nothing between our window and the parking lot.

Excellent stay. Staffs are friendly. Rooms are clean. My 6 year old was greeted with a free moose stuffed animal upon entering the room. HDTV with good channels. Big bathroom. Shower has good pressure. Free breakfast is offered but only a continental breakfast. Free coffee and fruit infused water in lobby 24/7. Free ice cream for kids in the afternoon. Free guest laundry. Fire pit in front of hotel is nice. Cons: Walls are thin. We could hear next door’s TV very clearly at night. Also the ground level rooms in the back are too close to the parking lot. There’s nothing between parking spaces and the rooms window. It could get noisy and the headlights at night could be bothersome. Overall a very nice stay. Will stay there again. Read less

This hotel was excellent except for the very bad internet. The only reason we cared is that the photos we took in Yellowstone Park on our iPhones wouldn’t transfer to our iPad for larger viewing that night. Having gotten that out of the way the hotel was in an excellent location for getting to Yellowstone NP, and for dining and shopping in town.… Read more
This hotel was excellent except for the very bad internet. The only reason we cared is that the photos we took in Yellowstone Park on our iPhones wouldn’t transfer to our iPad for larger viewing that night. Having gotten that out of the way the hotel was in an excellent location for getting to Yellowstone NP, and for dining and shopping in town. They had ice cream treats available each afternoon, and bagged supplies each night for s’mores at their fire pit. Breakfast was still grab and go due to COVID, but provided an adequate variety for our needs. The room was spacious, very clean and the staff was very nice. Other than the internet, it is 5 stars.

We stayed here 4 years ago and chose it again in 2021. Excellent. Clean, comfortable accommodations, spotless facilities and excellent friendly employees. We enjoyed the pool, the afternoon ice cream social, the smores, and the breakfast. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who asks.

This hotel is what you would expect for a chain, big-box footprint hotel. Clean with all the amenities. It was close to downtown so you can walk to dinner. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was fine.
