    Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn West Yellowstone

    Good place to stay

    from

    On arrival, the desk clerk upgraded us to a room in the new wing for the same price. Rooms in the new wing a very large and comfortable. Everything was very clean. The pool and hot tubs were nice despite having a bit too much chlorine. Besides, are you in town to stay holed up in your room or get out and see Yellowstone?

    Great time in Yellowstone

    from

    My family arrived on Aug 18 - 20 2005 for our fist trip to Yellowstone. Upon arrival at the check-in desk, I was given an upgrade to a larger room with two queen beds at NO additional charge! It was in the new section. I had originally requested a queen with child rollaway through Expedia at $89 a night.. What a nice suprise! Our stay was great! The staff was very friendly, room was clean and the tv worked quite well. I agree with the other reviewers who state that the pool is overchlorinated. It's probably to compensate for the heavy use it gets from the kids. Trappers restaraunt was very good for dinner. Aso, check out Canyon Street Grill. Awesome sixties decor and great food!!!! We will gladly stay again in our future visit.

    Poor rooms, great pool

    from

    This hotel is located in the heart of West Yellowstone. Our room was in the older section and it showed. The rooms were not that great. The rooms are very small. Our room did not have a shower curtain and the bathroom was dirty. We did have the opportunity to swim in the pool. My children loved it and we had a great time. The water slide is a great deal of fun. I would probably endure the rooms again so that my children could have fun at the pool.

    This place was nice!!

    from

    We stayed in West Yellowstone for four nights at the Days Inn...we had a mini suite, which was a regular hotel room with another room with two more double beds attached...you could've slept 8 people comfortable for $150 a night. It was a nice hotel and comparable to all the other hotels in the area. West Yellowstone is small so no matter where you stay its pretty much close to everything. The staff was very helpful, telling us what to do at night (not much) and restaurants to eat in. Go to the Running Bear Restaurant for breakfast. The town had a rodeo, an IMAX theater and some other fun stuff to do. Einos restaurant is about 8 miles outside of West Yellowstone and you can cook your food on grills, that was a great experience!! All in All I would highly recommend the Days Inn!!

    OK....if you do not want to use the pool

    from

    Just returned from our first trip to West Yellowstone, we stayed at the Days Inn for 3 nights, our room was clean however hallways and elevators definitely needed cleaning and maintenance. Our room was in the new wing, when we arrived, you could barely hear the TV, one channel had no volume at all, and the smoke alarm was dangling from the ceiling. I called the front desk and the smoke detector was fixed the next day while we were out. They informed me that they have filters on the TV's so you can't turn the volume too loud, I explained that my husband was hard of hearing in 1 ear and that even I was having a hard time hearing the TV, and my hearing is fine. The front desk clerk notified maintenance and the filter was removed due to my husbands hearing impairment the next day while they fixed the smoke detector. Even though we stayed in the new building, it appears they skimped on insulation when they built the new wing because the walls were toilet paper thin. We could hear doors closing and peope ALL NIGHT LONG. The 2 main issues we had on our trip was the pool area was SOOOO overly chlorinated that you could not stand to be in it, we had opened the windows in the pool area and it was still strong. I had wanted to use the hot tubs (they have 2) however the condition of the water was very questionable, they was alot of "stuff" floating on the water, one woman got out and had some green stuff all over her body, she had to rub quite a bit to get it off of her arms and legs. Management has a sign posted on the wall stating they are not responsible for swimsuit fading. Obviously they have had a problem with over cholorination in the past. The water slide would have been nice to use if the chloring levels would have been correct. The other problem we ran into were with the rates. When I booked our room directly with the hotel, I explained I was going to book for 3 nights however we may need an extra night, I was told if we needed the addl night and a room was available, we would be charged the same rate we had paid for the first 3 nights. When I called to the front desk to see if a room was available, they told me it was however they wanted to charge me an extra $40.00 per night. The rate I paid for the first 3 nights was $89.00 why pay $129.00 for the same room! I explained to the front desk clerk what I was told, and who told it to me and I was told he was no longer working there. Overall the room was rather spacious and clean however hallways and elevators were very dirty. We will definitely be returning to Yellowstone next summer however we will definitely be staying somewhere besides the Days Inn.

    Great place to stay - always bring confirmation when traveling

    from

    We stayed here for two nights on our recent trip to Yellowstone. We stayed in the new section just 1 door down from the pool. Our room was huge compared to all the other rooms we had stayed in on our trip. We were in 7 different hotel rooms this past 1-1/2 weeks! The only problem I had was the price I was quoted was 86.13 and when I got there they were going to charge me 108.99. I had my confirmation with me so I think that helped. I had booked over the internet with Days Inn website. They said something about them having no control over what that website does and if I didn't call them directly I might have problems. They said they would go ahead and call customer service and get the history behind my reservation. When I checked out I had the correct rate. The pool was really nice with the water slide that was very popular.

    We were very happy with our stay

    from

    I must say that I was a little skeptical of the place before I arrived, but sure enough this was a great place to stay with my wife and two kids. My friend and his wife and 1 year old also had a great time.

    The property appears to be one of the best in town and is very clean and comfortable. The restaurant is good with friendly Europeans working for the summer.

    Our 4 year old loved the fantastic water slide in the pool. The pool was relatively crowded at night (we were there over Labor Day so that is to be expected I guess) but in the early evening we were the only ones there and my son loved going down the slide again, and again, and again.

    The hotel is only a short couple of blocks from the main street in town.

    We will stay here again when we come back.

    Days Inn in West Yellowstone a Real Find!

    from

    We actually stayed here the summer of 2001, but it was such a great hotel, that I really wanted to let people know about it. When we were there, there was a newer, remodeled part, and an older section. The older section was pretty sad, but our room was great, and it was less than $100 a night. There is a cool waterslide and pool for the kids (and adults!) It was a real hit with our then 12 year old. It is very close to the park. Our room was very spacious and clean. The food at the cafe was good and very affordable, however, when we were there the service left something to be desired. I doubt if that waitress is still there after three years! I would highly recommend this hotel, as we still look back on that trip with fond memories, and the hotel room made it all the better!

    Stay far far away

    from

    Stayed here 2 nights enroute to Las vegas.

    First night was alright room was old but relatively clean. Cont. breakfast was a joke. Not too bad for $40 a night.

    Second time back was way worse if that's even possible. Asked to be put into the newer wing of hotel. Guy said he would have to charge me even though he had just told me the place was very slow.

    Settled for the old wing. Got sent up to a room that was not even cleaned from the last person there.

    Complained and got a new room still in the old wing however. NO APOLOGY AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Second room was not much better but atleast the bed's were made.

    Stay away from this hotel no matter what rate you can get they don't really want your buisness that bad.

    Convenient lodging

    from

    We purchased a package deal for snowmobiling. The snowmobiles were waiting right across the street, so very convenient. The restaurant connected was great eating along with very personable staff. Be sure to stay in the new section as it is much more updated and is closer to the waterslide that I couldn't get my kids away from!

    We were exhausted by this time so opted for another slower start: breakfast in the cabin, a walk around the property, running through the sprinklers. Even this took longer than imagined as we also had an impromptu tour of Buffalo Bill's hunting lodge (which is part of the property). After this we left, stopping at one of the park grocery stores for provisions for lunch and then continued with our plans.

    Buffalo Bill is big in the area - the ...

This is right next to the lake and the thermal features seem to be all around and also in the lake. These geysers were not the types that erupt high but were more the bubbling variety. From here we went towards the lower geyser basin where the old faithful is located. The old ...

We are on day 10 of this trip and in great need of some clean clothes. Driving here from our site was the first time I've driven since we left home! It's also pretty much the first time I've been alone. This trip is fantastic and we are all enjoying it but we may be at the point where all ...
