Historical Traveler Reviews Lazy G Motel West Yellowstone
Good but overrated...
Stayed at the Lazy G for 3 nights based on reviews on this site. The Motel is very clean and is a good value (we paid $69/night in early August). HOWEVER, it is *not* as exceptional as the other reviews would have you believe.
The motel is at least 5-6 blocks out of the main part of town in a scruffy residential area, and a pretty hefty walk is required to get to the attractions and eateries (after a day of long hikes, this is not good). If you have kids, add $7 each. Add $15/day for a kitchenette. The walls/roof are thin and there is no air-conditioning. The decor is 60's kitsch. Etc...
I do agree that the Lazy G is a good value, but make sure that you are calibrated to a lower end motel type accommodation before booking this one.
A great value
My husband and I just recently spent 5 nights at the Lazy G Motel while exploring Yellowstone National Park. The Lazy G has to be the bargain of the year! Our room was extremely clean and comfortable. There were lights on both sides of the bed for reading and wonderful lighting and mirrors in the makeup area. The room also had a mini-refrigerator and there was a picnic table right outside of our door. The motel is very quiet because it is several blocks away from all of the noise of the "downtown" area. Also, the owner/manager could not have been any more accomodating and helpful. I would recommend this motel to anyone looking for a quality motel at a budget price.
Very quiet, affordable
What a fantastic surprise! The hotel staff are very friendly, and down to earth. The rooms were very clean. It's nice to find a "no-smoking" room for a change! The hotel is a few blocks away from the main strip, and it's very quiet. The rates are very affordable. You can be sure I'll be back!
We stayed there for 4 nights, nice and freindly.
the location was quiet, the rooms were clean, the price was reasonable and the staff was friendly
Love this place
We have stayed here three times and its a great place. The owners are wonderful and helpful. The price is right, believe me. Rooms are clean and roomy. Park entrance is about 5 blocks. Am going back for the 4th time in a row and this is where I will stay, if they have a place for me.
We stayed 6 nights at this little gem--what a deal! Extremely clean, a frig, no smoking, quiet, tub & shower, helpful, friendly staff all for $43 a night! Further note--avoid the Texas Rose restaurant.
A quiet Retreat
Recently my wife and I spent three nights at the Lazy G motel in West Yellowstone, while touring the park. Although the kitchenette was tiny, featuring a combination sink, refrigerator and stove all in one, the room was clean and comfortable and the service was friendly and accomodating. The Lazy G is tucked away from the commercial hubbub of the myriad other motels and hotels that give West Yellowstone a Jr. Las Vegas feel, making Lazy G a pleasant and quiet retreat. For 2 of our 3 nights we grilled our own dinner on a gas barbecue grill in a common patio area adorned with well cared for flowering plants. It was so inviting we ate our dinners and enjoyed our wine at one of the picnic tables provided for the purpose. Other guests were quiet and respectful. Lazy G offers an outstanding value for a very modest price.
Nice and clean and very quiet. Off the main streets in an area of town of mainly residences.
Room was big and beds very comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful concerning where to see a moose!
QUIET, Comfortable, Inexpensive
WARNING: for its size, West Yellowstone is a very NOISY town, mainly due to the many large diesel truck owners there.
The Lazy G Motel is off the beaten path on a quiet side street toward the opposite end of town from the YNP entrance. Since it's off the main streets, it's very quiet.
For the money, you can't get a quieter room or a more comfortable bed :-)

... next door to pump our own gas. We're not in Hersey anymore. I didn't know if there was going to be any other stations after Cody or if there are any gas stations in the park so I wanted to fill-up now. I needed a couple of things (razor blades, sweatshirt) from Walmart, so that was our next stop. We also bought a few provisions for the trip (ceral, popcorn, nuts, water) for our rooms in the evening. It was Jean's turn to drive today. She drove us to ...
... to the underground reservoir, making it clear that many of the others that were labelled, but were just holes in the ground, would fill with water when erupting. I had the mechanism for them erupting explained to me by Ian, that under the ground, with high pressure and temperature the water exists as a supercritical fluid, which is much hotter than boiling water, but due to pressure remains as a liquid, as it erupts the pressure decreases and so ...
... choose to make a very long walk or just go out and back, which is whjat I did, After walking the 8 miles, I went back to see Old Faithful do its thing.
Once everyone got up and Michelle returned from one of her driving adventures to experience the southern part of Lake Yellowstone, not mention get one more stamp in her passport, got ready to leave the Park.
On our way out we made our first stop at ...
... the most personal experience. Artist's Point/ Upper Falls was our next hike. This consisted of an incredible waterfall carved into canyons of bright colored rocks and plants. From the lookout we saw the dark blue Yellowstone river below, resulting from the 189 foot waterfall. The colors of the canyon seemed to melt into each other, as if they were a bunch of popsicles left out in the sun, then drained together into a river. We spent a good amount of time ...
... s incredible how high it goes. After Old Faithful we drove to some other geysers we hadn't seen yet. It started raining pretty hard so we headed back for the car and headed back to Lamar Valley. My favorite part of Yellowstone is looking for the animals so I wanted to go back and see what we could find. It's about an 1 1/2 drive from Old Faithful to Lamar Valley so Harlie took a nice nap. As we were entering Lamar Valley there was TONS ...
