    « Conveniance location for visiting Yellowstone n.p. »

    Good and spacious romes. Clean and nice shower. Complementary breakfast was sufficient. Desk personal was verry helpful. Pool was already empty. Easy to walk to nearby restaurants, if they are open, lots were closed during our visit.

    « Great place so close to Yellowstone entrance »

    In looking for a place to stay near Yellowstone, price and convenience were a top priority. This hotel met both criteria. The staff was exceedingly helpful, friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was an added plus, with waffles, eggs, muffins and other items that make it better than the described "continental" I would definitely recommend and would stay here again when visiting Yellowstone.

    « Thoughtful Breakfast Buffet »

    We found the room to be comfortable and in good condition. Rooms are pricey due to the remoteness of the location and the short tourist season. That is to be expected. I found the addition of Lactaid Milk on the breakfast buffet to be very very thoughtful--as we usually have to bring a cooler with our milk along with us as very few places provide lactaid milk or almond milk or soy milk to replace regular milk. It is difficult to be lactose intolerant on a trip. It is difficult to find grocery stores that sell it as well in remote areas. Thank you Best Western Weston Inn.

    « Vacation stopover »

    Not what I expected. Not the usual Best Western. Still hard to believe Best Western or Weston put their name on this Hotel. Although the staff is great and the rooms clean, this is actually a refurbished strip motel. Those of us who are traveling for a long period and have luggage and are assigned a third floor room should be told when scheduling that there is no elevator. This should be noted clearly in hotel information. If you want quiet while you sleep this isn't the place. Very little noise suppression.

    « Friendly daytime staff »

    The room was clean, and had all the amenities expected. No complaints except for the noise from multiple RV generators parked outside our window, that went on and off all night long. The evening staff were a bit on the cold side, but the daytime staff made up for that with warmth and genuine concern for our comfort.

    « Well run motel-style »

    Looks a bit like nothing, but this 2-story motel is clean, well managed and well staffed. Every staff member we met was friendly and helpful on anything from dinner recommendations to which place we should go visit in the park. The place was full, even as the Yellowstone Park season was winding down; and that's not without reason, the best places stay full last. It's priced very reasonably, it's a stone-throw from the park West entrance, the rooms are comfortable, what more can you ask for... Yes, the breakfast room is a bit small, no, it's not the Ritz, but it really did it all for us for 4 nights. Highly recommended as a base to explore Yellowstone.

    « A Special Place »

    Everyone who works there is so nice and caring. They make you feel right at home during your stay. We were there for 10 and were treated wonderful. There breakfast bar has great food and the biscuits and gravy are as good as home made. You could count on the staff for help, as when one night my husband developed an eye problem and Brooke & Danielle went out of their to find a place for us to get help.

    « Well worth a visit »

    The Weston Inn is an 11 out of 10. The hotel room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the hotel manager and staff were friendly, professional and helpful. The breakfast was awesome. Heartily recommended.

    « West Yellowstone Best Western Weston Inn »

    Facility and staff were fine. Breakfast was on the lower range of okay. Price paid as relates to lodging and experience itself, too high. The price paid reflects proximity to national park, which is outstanding. The price paid does not reflect superior lodging experience.

    « Excellent and friendly motel »

    We needed a room at the last minute as the road to our planned hotel was closed due to an unexpected snow storm. Mary and Jim could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The room was immaculate and very comfortable. Breakfast was terrific. They gave us great advice regarding the park and local restaurants. Go to the local Union Pacific Museum. It provides a new perspective on the area.

    « Great staff and extremely comfortable stay »

    The staff at this Best Western was extremely knowledgeable about the area and were great conversationalists. They truly care about the job they are doing and it shows. The room was very comfortable. Breakfast was early every day, so even at 6am there was a fully stocked area. They do need to clean the carpets in the rooms a little more often, but overall a wonderful experience.

    « Amenities »

    No breakfast is provided for guests, not even a stale donut. Guests are directed to a restaurant in front of the hotel. No voucher is provided for breakfast. There appears to be a direct financial relationship between the hotel and restauarnt as there is a direct phone line to the restaurant from the hotel room for ordering food for pick up or delivery.

    « Way too expensive!! »

    While this motel had a pool and hot tub it was not worth the money. They change 3 times the normal rate for being at the entrance of the park (all the motel do). The place was small and felt like a motor court.

    « The only place to stay in West Yellowstone »

    This was our first trip to Yellowstone and the help Jim & Mary gave us in planning activities and food suggestions were perfect!! Would not stay anywhere else! This is the only place in our opinion to stay - location was central to all local activities.

    « nice hotel room »

    We had a queen sized room, one bed in a nice sized room. Within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Staff really friendly! We were in the main building and our room look great, not dated at all.

    « OK but expensive and dated. »

    The staff are very friendly and helpful. But the property itself is dated and is sorely in need of a refurbishing. The lower rooms are very dark but you can park right in front of your door. West Yellowstone during the summer is expensive, but for the money it cost me to stay at this motel, I can't help but feel I could have done better.

    « Economical and close to Yellowstone »

    We couldn't get a reservation in Yellowstone and this was close to the west entrance of Yellowstone. The hotel was clean, staff was friendly, and breakfast was good. Do you pay more during tourist season then it is worth...yes but in comparison this was the best bang for my money that I could find. Also it is close enough that we walked to dinner every night. Loved the soda fountain in town...what a treat!

    « Great Staff, Happy Stay »

    The price was high, but alas, we are in West Yellowstone. We were in the separate building of the hotel and on the bottom interior corridor floor. Almost felt like a basement room, was very dark, not much of a view when looking out directly at a fence. Luckily we weren't looking for a view, but a good night's sleep. Breakfast was good. They some type of eggs & meat, waffle maker as well as yogurt and small selection of fruit. They had a very friendly staff that kept breakfast well stocked and the front desk manned. Overall we had a pretty good stay!

    « Nice in a Pinch »

    The Staff were friendly and helpful, they made the stay pleasant. This is an old motel that is being updated, but the lay out and location, is wide spot in the road 1970's style. There are much better lodgings for the money in the area. Shop ahead and read all reviews.

    « Very friendly staff!! »

    Nice motel! A little pricey but when you figure the location it's right in line with the area. Decent breakfast, clean, just what you would expect from a Best Westerm. The whole staff was very friendly and helpful!!. Definitely recommend!'

    « Great study, great staff »

    Prices were expensive, but I guess this is typical for Yellowstone. We were very happy with our room. We had to change our reservation dates and they were very helpful and accommodating to meet our needs. Wifi was good, until everyone tried to use it. Room was very nice, beds comfortable, lots of pillows. Breakfast was very good with lots of choices and protein. Mary and Jim were so helpful and nice.

    « Quiet Comfort »

    I don't usually stay at Best Western, but I was pleasantly surprised. The room was huge and the bed the most comfortable on my week long trip. Very pricey but so is everything near the park during season. The breakfast was phenomenal with biscuits and gravy, sausage, eggs, all the fruits you could want, and anything else you could want. Very quiet, clean and so excellent rating and I usually only give very good.

    « Nice-clean rooms and friendly staff »

    We stayed here with our son & family prior to heading into Yellowstone Park. They offered a family suite for our son & family (2 queen beds & sofa sleeper). They pool was a warm (to our surprise because the air was cold 40's) & the hot tub was working. The kids had a great time. I was surprised to see that they had chair assists into the both the pool and hot tub, what a great thing for those who need a little help. The breakfast was hot and of standard fare. The staff was friendly & helpful and accommodating.

    « Touring Yellowstone »

    Great Best Western. This hotel is clean, well staffed and the desk team - Jordan and Jessica are friendly and customer driven. Good basic breakfast in the morning. I would stay here again and recommend this hotel. Unfortunately, the air quality in West Yellowstone was poor because of planned fires. Not their fault!!

    « Pleasant »

    This is not the grandest spot in West Yellowstone but the room was clean, nicely appointed and the staff was very friendly. Quick in, quick out and on to the park. I would stay there again. It's a block our do off the main highway into Yellowstone and away a few blocks from the party places but easy to walk to those. No truck noise in the room at all.

    « Convenient for the West entrance to Yellowstone »

    This is a good stop for exploring Yellowstone . Rooms are spacious and ours overlooked the park and caught the evening sun . Breakfast was very good with choice of hot and cold , fruit, yogourt, etc. we ate at the Tapas place as it was close but found it expensive and second night at the Buffalo Inn which was good but huge meals .

    « Good base for West Yellowstone »

    This hotel was not cheap, but then, few around Yellowstone National Park are. The room was plenty big enough, clean, well furnished, with an excellent bathroom. The breakfast was very good, although the fairly small space could get packed out at peak times. All the staff that that we met were very friendly and helpful and one small issue with our room was put right immediately upon notification. There was a lot parking around the hotel, all free. The hotel was a 5-10 minute walk from the main town centre, which catered for a wide range of dining and drinking options, although none very cheap. West Yellowstone is an 'OK' base for the National Park, especially for the main Geyser area around 'Old Faithful', but it is quite a long drive in - allow 40 mins after you go through the park gate to actually get anywhere.

    « Nice motel for the area. »

    This was a nice, clean location for a really busy area. Breakfast was a good variety of sausage/eggs/potatoes, toast, waffles, and cereals. The rooms are a good size. Fridge is an added bonus. We didn't use the pool or hot tub because we spent so much time in Yellowstone. Everyone from check-in, maintenance, and breakfast hosts were really friendly. They offer free wi-fi which is a nice touch. The only negative is that this is a older motel and you can definitely hear when people are walking above you or in the room next to you.

    « The. Worst. And they don't care! »

    Worst hotel experience in past 10 years! Poop on toilet when checking in. Told front desk politely, out of earshot of other guests. Said they'd check. sent manager and said was paint and would clean. Paint? On underside of toilet? A color NOT in the room? Was told it was the color from Last time. ...Seriously? Asked to be moved or at least a discount. None. Disappointing after driving 8 hours. Told we could cancel. They knew there were no more rooms in town. No discount from them. Asked if we wanted more cleaned. Ummm.. I guess not. Found more 'paint'/poop later. Was of motel 6 quality for more than Hilton prices, typical of the area but this one is one of worst! No towels at pool. Given a roll away w so little space in our room (king) that we had to step over to use restroom. I'm seeing the allure of the motor home more and more in these areas. The worst breakfast at a best western I've ever had! Eggs were awful. Ran into the main manager the next day, although we were told he wouldn't be around the entire weekend! We took some time the previous evening and called the best western headquarters who called the hotel and talked to them to hear their side of the story. They ended up frontloading us enough points for a free room in the future after that phone discussion. I could tell the manager wasn't happy w us; we did stumble upon him although we told he was offsite and couldn't be reached. Strangely, we have family in the area and often drive through. They count on folks passing through for business but missed out on possible repeat customers. DON'T. STAY. HERE.

    « Nice Hotel/Good Location »

    We stayed here for two days - August 17 and 18th. We had family suite that slept five and was perfect for us with 3 boys. Very good location to Yellowstone and also walking distance to lots of restaurants/stores, etc. We especially enjoyed the pool and hot tub (though it was windy the first day we were there and boys had to clean some debris out of both pool and hot tub - after that it was fine). Parking was free and so was breakfast which had pretty decent spread and good hours (I believe 6AM to 10AM). The only issue with breakfast was that it got crowded especially at certain times. We always got a table but moving in and out to make waffles, etc. was somewhat difficult. For price/amenities - would definitely consider staying here again.

    « Yellow Stone with Best Western »

    Manager of this hotel was awesome. She guided us on tourist point out of Yellow ston-she has a very good knowledge about all surrounding points. Also she helped us to store our food in refrigerator after check out

    « Great location for Yellowstone national park »

    We stayed here for two nights while visiting Yellowstone national park. I was pleasantly surprised - room was clean and comfortable. There was a fridge in the room. There is free parking -not necessarily right near your room but near enough. There wasn't a lift so a room on the upper floor was interesting with a heavy case but it was fine. The location is perfect for visiting Yellowstone - only a couple of blocks from the entrance to the park. The town seems mainly to serve tourists with numerous motels and restaurants -easy to walk to places to eat. Breakfast was the same as most places we stayed - waffles (make yourself), eggs, etc.

    « Poor value »

    Carpet was dirty / room was dark / only positive was water pressure. Parking was convenient right in front of the room but interior entrance is much better. Bottom line is the room was way overpriced. For the amount of points and Diamond level status with BW I expected much better.

    « Clean and comfortable »

    Stayed 3 nights. Great location! Walking distance to small shopping/food tourist area. Very close to the West Yellowstone Park entrance. Clean and comfortable rooms. Small refrigerator and microwave in room. Breakfast is included with room stay (waffles, eggs, sausage, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, assorted pastries, coffee/tea, juices). Hotel has outdoor pool..we never used because we were busy touring Yellowstone. Very friendly and helpful staff. Yes, would stay again.

    « Pleasantly surprised! »

    Our plan was to stay in Idaho Falls but we did not plan well and ended up having to head up to West Yellowstone in order to have somewhere to stay on our trip. The Best Western Weston was the only place with a room available. It was busy season and the price did show that, which was not surprising. The staff was incredible and the gentleman who checked us in even offered to come back up after closing to let us in since we thought we would be arriving after 11pm. The room was huge, clean and appeared to be renovated. We were pleasantly surprised.

    « Nice hotel »

    Stayed two nights while visiting Yellowstone. The room was nice and clean. The staff very helpful. The air conditioner could have been a little cooler, but it was alright. Good hotel for the close proximity to Yellowstone. I would recommend.

    « Very pleasant place to stay »

    The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and polite. We enjoyed our 4 days at this Best Western. Breakfast was hot and ready with plenty coffee available. If we make it back to Yellowstone I will stay here again.

    « Nice people, good location, good place »

    Very nice people, good location (5 minutes from the park entrance),good price (you are in West Yellowstone!), good breakfast: very good place. The breakfast is plentiful and tasty. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Finally, people at the front desk know also that Andrea is originally a male name from the ancient Greek. I recommend it definitely.

    « Clean place, great location »

    First, the pros : great location (so close to Yellowstone), good breakfast, pool and hot tub, friendly staff. And the cons : the pool and hot tub are in the parking lot, very expensive during the high season. Overall, the place is very clean and the pool was very much appreciated after long days spent in yellowstone. And getting to the park is only 2 minutes away.

    « Family vacation »

    This motel was fine but just pricey. The breakfast was very good. With 22 of us traveling together we enjoyed it being convenient on our route thru Yellowstone. If we are in the area again we would stay here if couldn't find anything less expensive and as nice a motel.

    « Mixed Experience »

    The people at this hotel are very nice and accommodating. The reality of staying in West Yellowstone is the prices are high compared to many other areas so you expect the fundamentals to be flawless. So, when the air conditioner does not work and the hot tub is out of order this is disappointing. The upside is they addressed my a/c problem, partially, and they got the hot tub back up later in our stay. Nice people but the building needs work.

    « Way, Way Overpriced even for a tourist trap »

    Hotel is fine. Way over-priced even for a tourist trap - paid $300+ per room. Plan early so you can get a better rate. However, also be aware that this is one of the better properties in this town - there are far worse options in West Yellowstone.

    « Family trip to Yellowstone »

    We stayed here for 2 nights during our visit to Yellowstone. Overall nice place to stay. They offer free wifi and hot/cold breakfast. The pool was very warm. It is located across from a big park with a playground. Our room was clean. It takes about 35 - 45 minutes to get into Yellowstone park, pending on traffic. A nice 5 minute walk to the main strip of West Yellowstone where you can find many gift shops, restaurants, ice cream shops and even a grocery store. There is a ropes course near the post office. I would definitely stay here again.

    « It was fine for what we wanted »

    It is still a little pricey but OK for 1 or 2 nights. The breakfast was a joke. Scrambled eggs were runny and cold. Bacon was nearly raw. For most part it was unappetizing. It is offered as FREE, but not really. I'm sure it is included in the price of the room. I would have preferred to pay less for the room and go elsewhere for a decent breakfast.

    « Expensive Hotel and not a great experience with the rooms »

    We had a late check in that day. The hotel itself has three floors and we were on the second floor with no elevator access. With luggage, we needed to do multiple trips to the room. Secondly, the temperature was over 90 degrees outside and the AC unit was not working in the first room. We were switched to another room. However, the AC unit in the second room was cooling for just a few minutes and stopped. We had a similar stay in Best Western in Gardiner the previous night and it was a wonderful experience with great view, breakfast facility and facility. We just did not have the similar experience at the West Yellowstone location and it was pricier at the Yellowstone location. The internet service was working that the kids liked and the breakfast was basic continental food.

    « They staff could not have been nicer. »

    Although the facilities have been upgraded, it was still small and had some cosmetic issues. The door rubbed and was difficult to open, but this can be fixed. The rooms were clean and the staff could not have been any more friendly. It was pricey for a Best Western, but you have to consider how close you are to the west entrance to Yellowstone. The outdoor pool is tiny and the spa did not work during our visit.

    « Perfect location for visiting Yellowstone! »

    Best Western Weston Inn has recently renovated, clean and comfortable rooms with refrigerators and microwaves. Jim and his wife (and other hotel staff) were wonderful hostesses and gave great suggestions for places to eat, etc. Free daily hot breakfast was very good and well tended. Other reviews mentioned noise was an issue, but we never heard anyone and the hotel was completely booked. All hotels in this area are pricey, but you are paying for being 1/2 mile from the park entrance. All restaurants and shops in West Yellowstone are within walking distance from the hotel. We had some time to kill before flying out on our last day, so we did the walking tour of the town and it was fun and interesting. I would definitely stay here again!


    Book early at a yellowstone property! We booked last minute and stayed here. Not only were we put in the basement, but dated hotel and very crowded breakfast area. Hotel needs to be remodeled and redesigned. The pool area is very small. Look around for a better value for your money.

    « Pleasantly Surprised »

    The hotel looked older from the outside, but was totally remodeled very nicely inside. The front desk personnel was superb. Helpful with suggestions for Yellowstone & every other request. The location to Yellowstone was 5 minutes from the entrance. We would definitely go back.

    « Great locatoin, good facilities »

    Room size was good, two double beds. AC took a while to get the correct balance. One narrow counter for the bathroom sink. Needs to be remodeled. Tight room for shower and toilet. Excellent hot water and finicky shower adjustment. Room is way too dark. Needs more lights. Not enough wall outlets. I had two cell phones being charged and two camera batteries....that was just two many devices being charged. At this price I expect a double bathroom vanity. It's time to spend the dollars to modernize this busy place. Note, we checked out before the office opened and they would not email me a receipt. Instead, I have to go back to the Internet source where I made the reservation for that document. Come on get into the real world. Beds were good.

    « Nice, clean, well run hotel »

    I was quite satisfied with this hotel; however, the rate was very high (at least 4X the normal rate for this type of hotel) due to the tourist season. Management and staff were very friendly and helpful.

    « National Park Visit »

    Stayed for 4 nights whilst visiting Yellowstone National Park with our cousins during our recent US holiday. Whilst room rate was generally more expensive than we paid elsewhere during our visit it was over the 4th July weekend. Breakfast was average and breakfast room was full during peak period. Positives were very friendly and helpful staff, location within 5 mins drive of park entrance and 5 mins walk for restaurants/shopping. Room was clean, comfortable. and quiet. We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

    « Church conference »

    I had a wonderful time at best western hotel in Baltimore.the mades were extremely nice ,the services was more than I could ask for .Shurline the morning cook she went beyond the call off duty ,she mad breakfast an hour ahead of time and always had a smile on her face not just for her friendly services towards me and my church family but to a that made our trip a successful one thank you all we hope to visit again

    « Well worth the consideration »

    I have stayed at this facility for my annual one week Yellowstone summer fly fishing trip for over a decade. They keep getting better and better. The breakfast is very, very good and the WiFi has really improved. It is quiet, affordable and comfortable and the staff is really nice!!!

    « Best Western Weston Inn »

    Per night cost is too high. Value for money is less. Paid $260 per night. Breakfast is average. More of Motel type building. Need renovation. Staffs are friendly. Good location. Many options for Food and Leisure.

    « West Yellowstone 2016 »

    The Inn was a basic motel with 2 floors, plus a newer addition with 3 floors. The location was very close to all the town's activities and the Entrance Gate to Yellowstone NP. The free breakfast was good with waffles, eggs, sausage, fruit, muffins, bread, etc. We were able to park next to our lower level room. There was a park across the street. We had a pleasant 2 night stay.

    « Basic amenities, great location »

    The rooms were pretty clean, and the location is just minutes outside the west entrance of Yellowstone national park. That said, its a bit over priced for the fairly basic amenities. The breakfast is 4 inch omlettes and alternating sausage links or sausage patties. There are also biscuits and diced potatoes. It gets very crowded for breakfast but eases around 9 or 9.30 am. It had ample parking and is well placed near a lot of restaurants within a 3-4 block radius.

    « Great hotel - free parking - Good location »

    Stopped here for just one night, expected to be staying in the main block wooden with balconies but were sent to a new block just next door which was really clean and appeared quite new. Room was spacious and clean with all amenites and free parking. Easy short walk into town which was great with a real 'western' feel. Good shops and eateries we ate in Old Town Cafe which was good. Short drive into Yellowstone.

    « Great hotel! Great staff! Great location! »

    This was a great hotel very close to Yellowstone's west entrance...1 block from park border! Big laundry mat next city park across street. Hotel staff was so nice and super helpful about the area. Free breakfast was very good as well! We Will come back to this hotel in the future!

    « Excellent stay »

    We booked 6 months in advance and the price was still high, but it was so worth it. Clean rooms,great bed & pillows! Continental breakfast was okay didn't care for the biscuits and gravy... some kind of spices that my stomach didn't like.. lol couldn't ask for a better management and staff.

    « Great location, fine super clean rooms, good breakfasts »

    We had 3 rooms for family. All exterior entrances, very well maintained, and great beds. One fine motel. We travelled for 2 weeks and this was one of the best places. Super attentive people and well staffed---a rare occurencs in many motels today.

    « Nice & Clean! »

    I stayed here for 3 nights in June for the Yellowstone Half Marathon and had no issues whatsover. The room (2 queens) was spacious, everything was updated and clean, and the staff I spoke with were friendly. It was very pricey (nearly $300/night), but it's Yellowstone and high season, so what can you do?

    « Exceptional stay »

    I can't express my gratitude to Mary and the staff for the stay at this facility. Each and every time I had a request, the staff helped past what I expected. They truely acted like they wanted to help make my stay the best possible. .

    « Great service »

    The hotel room is more of a motel feeling, room very basic. I guess for a small West Yellowstone town, that's typical. I rate this hotel a 4 mainly because of their outstanding services. All staff are very friendly and went beyond their way switched my family of three from a King room I booked (only room type left) to a two queen room. Breakfast area very small but food was ok. There are coffee, tea and hot chocolate in the lobby area all the time. The hotel is very close to Yellowstone West Gate and within walking distance to several restaurants.


    We had two days to experience YellowStone park. Mary, the owner of this hotel, was extremely helpful with suggestions on how to spend our two days in the park. She was spot on with all of her suggestions, and because of this we had a fabulous trip. The hotel is nice and clean. Breakfast gets busy so get there early. Our room was very quiet. I would stay there again.

    « Great stay also for few days. »

    We was there for two days. The room was big and ok. The floor was very very dirty. Withe socks gone brown.. But the rest was clean. The staff was very frindly and helpfull. The breakfast was ok. The room for breakfast is a little tiny for all customers. But they made some tables outside in the fresh air. The pool is ok. Parkingslots are ok for a Tahoe but not for bigger cars or trucks. But they are free. All in all i recommend it. We come again for a few days.

    « We would stay here again »

    Nice hotel, just far away enough to get away from the crowds of the town. The rooms were nice, no elevator but they had staff on hand to haul bags to rooms. The pool was nice as was the hot tub. I found the front desk staff to be very nice and accommodating.

    « good location for visiting Yellowstone park »

    Great breakfast & good location for visiting the national parks. Only downside was their inability to send me the phone charger that I had left. They referred me to an outside service whose price was too high. The cost of a replacement was less than the postage fee of the outside service,

    « Good location »

    Stayed here for 4 nights and had everything we needed for our visit to Yellowstone. Close to the park but with all the shops/restaurants etc close by. Very friendly, helpful staff. Nice, clean, spacious room with fridge and microwave. Decent breakfast with hot and cold food on offer. Also laundrette next door which came in handy for us mid trip! Would definitely stay here again :)

    « Over priced »

    This is a below average bw especially for the price. It is probably in the price range of west Yellowstone at nearly 300 per night but don't expect anything special. For that price consider the old faithful inn in the park. Sorry we did not do that.

    « Stairs!!!! No Evelators!!!! »

    Stayed 1 night 31 May 2016 We were given a nice room in the new building of the motel on the 3rd floor ? should have taken them up on their offer of help with luggage. It does astound me that so much money is spent on a new accommodation building and yet an elevator is not put in. An elevator sure does add to the comfort and convenience of your guests.

    « Loved our stay »

    So close to Yellowstone. It was great to make this our base for our 5 day visit to Yellowstone. Our granddaughters loved being able to swim in the pool. The hotel staff were all friendly and helpful. Also nice and close to the town of West Yellowstone.

    Pros: Courteous front clerks and managers Helpful local info Clean rooms Good free hot breakfast Check in and out was easy Cons: Pricey, typical for tourist area Pool run down and dirty Room had chemical smell from cleaning Other: the parking lot filled up each night but we always found a spot. No towels at pool when we went but they had some at front office. Free WiFi does not reach pool area. Laundromat next door...unaffiliated.

    « Pricey, but pleasantly surprised! »

    Stayed here for one night after driving around Yellowstone. You are definitely paying Yellowstone premium prices, but what can you do? We had a dog with us and they are pet friendly, but you must reserve ahead because they on,y have a certain number of pet rooms. The front desk staff was very pleasant and welcoming. We stayed in room 123 which is the back building. It was a short walk from the front desk, but parking available right in front. It seemed this was recently renovated, could smell the new carpet. The room was very clean and modern decorations, including flat screen tv. It was a large room. Beds were very comfortable and we had a great night of sleep. Shower was very hot and with great water pressure. Wifi was ok, but not much quicker than the limited 4G data speeds. Hotel is about 2-3 blocks away from the "action" of the small town. Easy to walk to restaurants. The big sell is that you are less than a 5 minute drive from the west entrance to Yellowstone. I would definitely stay again, even at the premium Yellowstone rates (almost as high as NYC prices!).

    « Good choice »

    We booked this motel well in advance so got a decent deal for 4 nights in West Yellowstone and was very pleased with the accommodation . The welcome we received at check in was excellent and all the staff we met were friendly and positive . The location was pretty central and I would be happy to stay again if we were in the area . My only complaint is that I hate reformed egg for breakfast but unfortunately it appears to be common in lots of places.

    « Nice Enough But Noisy »

    My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights on a pass-through visit to Yellowstone on our way to Glacier NP. It's away from the tourist crazy center of town and across the street from a park. Our room was in a separate building from where the arrival desk is located, and getting to our room involved opening 3 heavy doors and going up a half flight of steps. The room itself was fine but dated. There was what appeared to be a coffee bar area near the bathroom, but when we went to make coffee in the morning, there was no outlet in the area. We had to move the coffee maker to the desk. There appears to be virtually no sound insulation in the walls. We could hear every word from the man next door who had long conversations on his speaker phone. There were a group of Asian visitors who all had rooms near each other, and they were treating the area like a dormitory, with their doors open and visiting between rooms. (Little did they know they could have done the same thing with their doors closed.) All the conversation was noisy but not particularly distracting since we couldn't understand them. A caution about rooms in the rear building. The rooms on the first floor are a half flight down, which makes their windows at the exact level of car headlights when they pull into parking spaces next to the building. Every time we parked, we saw someone blinded by our lights. I would likely look for a different property if we visited again and couldn't get a room in the park. It's not a definite "no" but there were other options.

    « Very good and comfortable »

    We stayed here for 7 nights and were very pleased with our choice of this hotel as a base for visiting Yellowstone Park. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful - particularly Mary who, when we checked in, gave us full details of what to see and do and helped us choose what we think is the best room in the hotel - Room 219. This room is at the end of a balcony on the first floor and, effectively, is private as it is not passed by any other visitors. Also its position is such that you can sit on the balcony and enjoy the last of the afternoon sun. The room itself was clean and spacious - an important requirement when you are going to be living in it for a week. Room facilities were good. Breakfast was also substantial and varied - only minor quibble is that the breakfast room itself awsa bit small so, t busy time, it felt a little crowded.

    « Another great stay at Best Western »

    We have come to expect great stays at Best Western, and were not disappointed here at the Weston Inn. summer is a busy time in west Yellowstone, and the staff here are kept hopping. the breakfast room can be a bit crowded ,with everyone hurrying to start their day in Yellowstone National park, yet there was never a want or a wait for any of the items presented for the breakfast. The place is spotlessly clean and the staff goes out of their way to make sure your stay is a good one.

    « Great Place to Stay »

    I stayed here while driving through from Nevada back to Canada and it was the perfect place to stop. I was impressed with how clean it was how large the room was. Staff were very helpful as I wanted to explore the area, they were able to guide me in the right direction. The hot tub looked so relaxing, however I didn't have time to try it out. I would certain return when I'm in the area again.

    « Great place »

    This is a very good place to stay when visiting the YNP and surrounding recreational opportunities. Good employees, great breakfast, clean and comfortable. Easy to find and walking distance to eating and shopping.

    A very nice hotel, good location. Bfast was good. Excellent personnel. West yellowstone is a small town, ideally situated to visit the parks. Weston Inn hadd a good price and location. Its personnel is outstanding , so very nice and welcoming. Would return without doubt

    « High price for a disappointing room! »

    Staying in West Yellowstone is always a gamble. For the $257 price hotel, we received hairs on our sheets, a smashed bug on the bottom sheet, a flickering light when turned off, a lamp with a burned out bulb, and hair in the shower. Bathroom is so small you must stand next to the Toilet to close the door. And our first floor room was below street level. No elevators - carrying everything up and down stairs. We will not return to Best Western Weston, West Yellowstone.

    « Exceptional Staff »

    What a pleasant surprise after a long day in Yellowstone Park. We were pleasantly greeted and quickly checked into our room. We had specific room requests and it was happily granted. Rooms are not huge, but we're very clean comfortable and very close to downtown eating areas and shopping. We had an issue with the Wi-Fi connection. Jordan came up to our room and did not leave until all of our devices were connected and working properly. Jordan was so polite. We had a great time talking to him and appreciated him going the extra mile. The ladies in the morning were just as sweet. We will definitely stay again.

    « Not as advertised. »

    When we made the reservation, we were told that this was the LAST room available, but when we got up the next morning and took a semi warm shower (no hot water), and went down for the OK breakfast, there were numerous rooms with the windows open and beds that had not been slept in. The price for this hotel was more than I paid to stay at an Embassy Suites overlooking the horseshoe falls at Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada.

    « Great Lodging & Service by Yellowstone National Park »

    This Best Western is an excellent place to stay when visiting Yellowstone National Park. The rooms are outstanding, the free breakfast is excellent, and the staff is great! Free high speed Internet is available, and DirecTV offers lots of morning news and evening entertainment..

    « Great place to stay when visiting Yellowstone! »

    I would highly recommend staying at the Best Western Weston Inn in West Yellowstone when visiting Yellowstone! Great location right outside of the western entrance of Yellowstone National Park with a very affordable price. I also recommend eating lunch at the Yellowstone Inn at Yellowstone Lake!

    « Good Location to Yellowstone National Park »

    While we prefer a different hotel brand which was not available in this area, we picked Best Western ? Weston Inn. This hotel was better than what I expected. The room was very clean but the bed wasn't too comfortable. At least we were able to sleep OK. The people at the desk were very friendly. We were able to walk around the town. The breakfast room was pretty crowd and I wasn't too crazy with their selection of food. If we ever come back here, I'd like to come here again or I'd like to try Best Western Desert Inn. The distance to Yellowstone National Park was a perfect reason to stay here at West Yellowstone. Very nice and quiet area.

    « Very nice place to stay »

    The only reason I didn't give this an "Excellent" was the room location. Different rooms are probably fine but ours was right by the 2 doors going to the outside, so every time anyone went out or came in, you hear it. (room 116-A) We had our dog and the fee was more reasonable than most and there was a place across the street to take them to play and do their business. Just make sure you pick up after your pet.

    « Older hotel with average room »

    Our room was on the backside of the hotel. As the last king room available when we booked online, we ended up with a handicapped room that appeared to have been remodeled fairly recently. The backside of the hotel though does not have any curb appeal and the parking was tight and very limited. The room itself was basic but fine for an overnight. The breakfast was better than average. The lady at the front desk was very sociable and nice and was concerned with our satisfaction. However, on a week long trip through the region, this was probably the least pleasant room we had-- with squeaky floors to boot!

    « Hotel location is a plus »

    Stayed here for 3 nights during our visit to Yellowstone National Park. The hotel is located in the middle of the town , 5 min from the West entrance to Yellowstone park. Most of the restaurants , bars are a walking distance from here. We found it to be clean and well maintained and had no issues with our stay. The breakfast spread was good.

    « Best Experience at Weston Inn »

    Best Western Weston Inn, West Yellowstone. When thinking of visiting Yellowstone,there are three things to consider; which area, which accommodation and how to get there. We chose West Yellowstone and it could not have been better; it is about half a mile from the NP's west entrance and the closest town to most of the famous sites to visit; Firehole drive with cliffs of volcanic rock either side of the road and roaring river; the plains where the bison graze and roam; the fuming gaseous lower, middle and upper level geysers; and the mighty 'Old Faithful', which is 28 miles away! There is plenty of accommodation in West Yellowstone and we thoroughly enjoyed our three nights at the Best Western Weston Inn. Prices are competitive, rooms are well appointed, clean and cleaned and the hotel management is second to none, as I experienced when trying to sort out the shortcomings of Expedia. If it had not been for the accommodating nature of Jim, the GM, we would have experienced Expedia at its weakest. How to get there. Obviously there are lots of ways and different forms of transport. We chose flying Southwest from LV then hiring a car, all pre-booked and cost effective. It is a long drive and the journey can be broken at Pocatello. There are road and speed restrictions but beyond Pocatello an 80 mph limit helps the time to shorten

    « Weston Inn »

    Great place to stay especially with pets! The staff was so nice and the location was very convenient. Very comfortable rooms too! I would definitely recommend this hotel and I will stay here again. Thanks for a great stay!

    « great location »

    The motel is located in West Yellowstone - the bed and pillows were really comfy - the layout of the room - twin queen - large and plenty of room to move about - wifi was bad - breakfast ok - but not enough room for all the guests - had booked on points - but they had debited my credit card - and it took quite a while for the credit to come back to me - overall ok experience

    « Vacation »

    Although an older Best Western, appearance was clean and well kept. Room was very clean and well cared for. Hi-speed internet worked perfectly. Dining room was crowded so we ate in our room. Breakfast was terrific.

    « Good Place to stay »

    Nice clean room. Good shower , the bed was good. Had a problem with the TV remote but manager got it changed out. Front desk personnel friendly and helpful. Didn't eat breakfast as it was so crowded with guest and it was so hot in the room. O


    Finding a moderately priced accommodation in West Yellowstone is a challenge. Several months ago, I booked a room at the Best Western Weston Inn. The rate was terrific when booked ahead. Mary, at the front desk, greeted us with great enthusiasm. She wants every guest to live their bucket list dream by enjoying the Yellowstone experience. Mary shares information, eagerly oversees breakfast, and takes time to offer suggestions for places to eat in West Yellowstone. If a visitor stays at the accommodations within the Park, getting use to NO WIFI, NO TELEPHONES, NO READING LIGHTS IN THE ROOM, and NO TV is a challenge. Arriving back at the BW Western Inn was like coming home.

    « OK but! »

    Hotel was more of a motel type of building with rooms entered from an outside walkway. Room was large with two queen beds which were comfortable. We both woke up in the morning feeling unwell ( dizzy, blurred vision & feeling sick) and noticed that the carbon monoxide sensor was quietly beeping intermittently. We told reception about this potentially dangerous situation but they tried to convince us that we were probably suffering from the altitude. Since we have spent the last forty years skiing in the Alps we knew our problem wasn't altitude. I do hope they have room 204 fully checked since we referenced CO symptoms on the net which confirmed our suspicions.

    « Reasonable, Clean and Friendly »

    Our room was clean & originally for Accessibility. Large and spacious for those needing the space. Mary is warm, friendly and VERY knowledgeable about the area. Staff in the breakfast area were top-notch and kept the area clean and presentable in-spite of the large groups coming and going until 9am. Wide selection of breakfast items for such a cozy space. For those on a family budget, this is a safe, clean and appropriate motel. A large park is across the road from the motel for children and pets. Pool was not open yet on our stay.

    « An oldie but a goodie! »

    This motel is the older of the two in town, but it could not have been more hospitable. Mary made sure all needs were met and that guests were comfortable with no issues. Though the motel was aged, it was clean and the breakfast second to none (it should be listed on the web site as full breakfast instead of continental - the gravy & biscuits put the eggs and meat in the shade)! While I thought the price was a tad high, one has to consider this town is apparently a "high-rent" district because of Yellowstone Park.

    « Great »

    The staff and rooms were just perfect for our stay. Breakfast was very good and I appreciated all the advise at checkin in my first visit to the area and the park. We could walk into the charming town which was a plus.

If this place won't be open in thje winter anymo\\re, Id love to buy it!!!!!!! This p0lace is in a great location and has wonderful access to everything!!!!

    « You Pay For the Location »

    This hotel is located just a short drive from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park in the cutest little town. It is right next to a laundromat and a Chinese restaurant (didn't try their food so can't comment on it) and the gas station is right up the street. Just a few blocks down is The Buffalo Bar & Casino, a must try eatery! The room is typically what you would expect from a Best Western, spacious and clean. We had a room on the first floor and parking was right outside your door, super convenient for loading and unloading your things. The breakfast room is pretty tight so you would have to plan your meal to avoid the crowd. The price is a little high for what you get but thats expected when staying near a major tourist area.

    « Right outside the park. »

    Clean rooms and polite staff. Easy access for any vehicle. Pulling a trailer with personal pontoon boats and had no problem parking. Nice location. West entrance is a nice distance to old faithful and other main attractions. Price was a little high but enjoyed our stay.

    « Yellowstone Park »

    The room was clean and the breakfast was good. We only stayed 1 night and left early in the morning to head to the park. I wish I would have know the pool was outside and only open seasonally. The manager in the morning was very friendly and quick to ask if we had any problems.

    « Expected a little more »

    My family and I stayed here on a trip to Yellowstone. I am a best western rewards member and so we picked this hotel because it is a best western. On arrival the room had no remote and when I spoke to the kid at the front desk he was like we had a rough year and I am not sure about any remotes but he did find me a remote. The next morning the blow dryer did not work and we spoke to a nice man at the front desk and he made sure we got it taken care of that day. When the maids cleaned though they left half the dirty towels out and did not fill up the body wash that was empty. The parking was not very good so we had to park at the park across the street. The breakfast room is small and was very busy and hard to find somewhere to sit. It was not the worst place I have stayed but not the best.

    « Excellent experience »

    When we arrived the hotel in the evening after a long tired day, we were greeted by very friendly working staff. When we asking about the dinner options, because sometimes we find it difficult to find a good local restaurant to satisfy your stomach, the receptionist named Logan gave us various suggestion, we really appreciated his help. With the good location, free Wifi and breakfast, I think my overall staying here is more than excellent.

    « Great stay! »

    Great stay! Staff accommodated our request for a quiet room, top floor, over looking the park. Early next morning (5:30AM) coffee was good and strong and got the day going. Very friendly and helpful staff!

    « West Yellowstone »

    Right near the entrance of West Yellowstone park. Plenty of eating places in walking distance. Walking distance to the majority of the stores in West Yellowstone. Don't forget to check out the Grizzly bear and Wolf center in case you don't see them in the park. A must see.

    « great place to stay »

    I enjoyed the stay at this hotel as it was central to walking in West yellowstone and very close to the Yellowstone Park. The room had been updated and it was very comfortable. It was great to visit in the Fall as there were not a lot of people. We did miss the spa but we didn't have much time so it wasn't a problem

    « Up graded motel 6 »

    The price for what we got in a room was very disappointing. Not like most of the best westerns we stay at. Will never stay here again. The room was small, the bathroom was a 1960's style, and the parking was terrible.

    « Great place to stay, friendly helpful staff »

    Excellent location to Yellowstone and superb breakfast that is truly available for late risers like us (fresh hot eggs and sausage up until 10 am). Very clean and room was adequate, with the bed comfortable. But the main advantage and the reason for the five stars is that the staff is fantastic. Always friendly and provide a wealth of great info about Yellowstone. This is my go to place to stay!

    « Such a PLEASANT Surprise! »

    This Best Western is conveniently located (close to the National Park entrance), the check in staff is very friendly and helpful. The room is large and comfortable, for the area and pricing, this is an excellent value. The best surprise was the wonderful hot full breakfast in the morning. Apparently the hotel has been serving a full hot breakfast with delicious meats and eggs for the past two years and the Best Western website still list them as serving a Continental Breakfast. At checkout, we saw the owners and they were really pleasant and made us feel so welcomed. They really cared about maintaining the quality of their place. So if you are looking for a good value, look no further.

    « Annual Yellowstone Trip »

    As part of our annual 2 week trip to the Yellowstone area, we have stayed at the Best Western Weston Inn many times, and stayed here recently again for 3 nights. We like the location as it is easy walking distance to West Yellowstone restaurants. We always stay in the annex as the rooms are much larger. The rooms are always clean, secure and functional. We were pleased to see the upgrade and remodel of the rooms as well as the breakfast room/lobby. The owner has put a lot into the upgrades and it was very nice. The managers of the property are very engaged in the operation, service oriented and helpful. Will stay here again.

    Great stay. The room was large and comfortable. It was quiet, which is very important to us. Parking was good. The staff was very professional and helpful, especially w/r questions about Yellowstone Park. We especially appreciate the day manager Mary, who went to extra lengths to help meet our needs as seniors, even though she was dealing with a fully occupied hotel.

    « Nice Hotel »

    This is a nice hotel, easy to find, staff are friendly and helpful. Car parking is a problem with insufficient parking spaces for the amount of rooms in the hotel. To get a good parking space arrive early. The rooms are a good size, very clean and the beds are very comfortable. This hotel is in an excellent location, if you are visiting Yellowstone National Park, as the West entrance to the park is only half a mile away.

    « Disappointing »

    This property was a poor value for the money. The walls were paper thin and the breakfast was full of processed foods. While the interior of the rooms have been upgraded, I still would not stay here again. In fact, I would avoid West Yellowstone altogether! prprocessed foods. verprocessed.

    « Disappointing Stay...Noisy Room, Tour Groups and Chaotic Breakfast! »

    We've just had a very disappointing 4-night stay when we were expecting to have a lovely peaceful once-in-a-lifetime visit to Yellowstone NP. We made our booking nearly a year in advance, and we're Best Western members...but that doesn't guarantee you a nice room at this hotel. We were given a room in the new building which is like a dormitory building. It had no outlook, and we had a window which looked onto a messy backyard and a right-there satellite tower with fan-cooled electrics at the bottom operating all night...making for poor sleep. We tried to get a different room as soon as we arrived but the reception clerk was firm that that wasn't possible because the hotel was booked out. We didn't want to have any hassles so stayed...even though we did discuss finding another hotel. The building we were in had very bad sound insulation and it was so busy with tour groups while we were the noise overall was bad..and the tour groups made continuous noise...loud talking at all hours, slamming of doors very early etc. In our room we could hear the talking in the adjacent room, plus coughing, sneezing, microwave, showers, toilet fan etc etc.We asked people to keep the noise down quite a few times, but they couldn't care less. As a result of the hotel being fully booked and with the tour groups, the situation in the small breakfast room was chaotic...quite ridiculous really. I don't know how the hotel lets this happen. (Maybe they could have an extra breakfast in the dormitory building as well when they are booked out). This hotel obviously didn't suit us, so if you're not concerned at all, and you get a good rate, go for it. We paid a high rate... and expected to have a good experience. We're writing this from a lovely BW hotel in Twin's half the price, the hotel has met our requests for a quiet room, and there are no tour groups! .
