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 :-)

The morning commenced with geysers galore, dense trees and lots of green and transformed as we headed past the steep, colourful, rocky valleys of Canyon Valley towards the open, brown, flat plains of Lamar Valley, which is called the 'Serengeti of North America'.

Now we were very happy to take out the stove cook stuff and eat, all within a short time. Food actually tastes better at Yellowstone. After that we visited Lewis lake and the kids had a good time splashing around in the water. After another change of clothing we were on our way to bridge bay ...
Ashley ran around town while Brad biked. I spent time trying to figure out a game plan for the week ahead. I have no reservations for anywhere else yet, but I know Brad wants to head to Mt. Rainier National Park. I want to spend the day in Seattle, and I want to stay a couple of days in the Port Angeles area. Right now, Salt Creek Park's reserved campground is full, but half of their sites are first come, first serve. I want to stay here because they have tide pools ...
... beef and bison on the menu, and usually other game meat, such as elk or antelope. We currently are cuddled up in the tent with long sleeves, a sleeping bag rated to 30 degrees, and a blanket. It's warm underneath all that, but very cold otherwise (probably low 50s right now)! The day was mostly warm (in the 70s), though there was a cool breeze at times, especially with the clouds...definitely a bit different from the weather in ...
The ride into West Yellowstone was a really tough ride. Lots of narrow shoulders and gravel caused for the team to rack for 10 miles due to safety. I disagreed with the decision to rack but you know this trip isn't just about the miles. For our day off we hiked up Mt Washburn at 6:30 ...
