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 :-)

We woke early feeling not too bad at all considering the interrupted night we'd had. The view from the window (we were on the 11th floor) revealed a green-looking neat city, bordered by steep green hills to one side and then flat foreverness on the other. We could see what we imagined must be the Mormon Temple and other interesting buildings but they'd all have to wait until our return visit. Today, our mission was to get out of Salt Lake City and ...
7/23 Day 32 This was our last day in West Yellowstone. I started out the morning seeing an elk run past our back window in the woods behind our camper. Nice way to start the day with my coffee.
We toured part of the northern loop in Yellowstone Park. We went first to Canyon Village and had lunch in their cafeteria. From there we went along the northern rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. The canyon is hundreds of feet deep and ...
... the big show. Once it started there was about 10 minutes of spouting, and a lot of time of steaming. There were tons of other geysers to see as we walked the boardwalks, some erupting, some steaming and some doing nothing. We walked quite a bit of the area until Kaeleigh had to go to the bathroom and we headed back to check out Old Faithful Inn. Of course, no vacation of ours is complete without multiple stops for ice ...
... in this area as well as a walk around. There was a dragon cave – just another geyser. I walked around and took a few pictures, then back on the coach.
Next stop we made was at a lunch stop – food was very basic, just hot dogs really, but it gave us time to stretch our legs and walk around. After lunch we drove to the Norris geyser basin. Here we did a walk around this gyser basin and saw the weird colors and hot ...
... ve thought of everything an RVer needs. Every site was treed, had a picnic table and had plenty of room for your "toad". You wouldn't need a car for the in-town activities, though, since most things are within walking distance. I was glad to see so many restaurants and decided to eat out and chance that the restaurants would be able to serve me a gluten-free meal. Success!!! We ate out several times and I never got sick.
There were two ...
