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 :-)

... to Mammoth Springs. Another beautiful bit of scenery, not surprisingly. I got a huckleberry slushi and some honey/huckleberry wine to take back home. The slushi was delicious so I hope the same is true for the wine. I made sure to take lots of pictures and even saw tons of bison up close and personal. There was one on the other side of the road right by the curb eating a plant. There had to be a ranger around ...
... the park. The GPS knows right where you are and gives important guide information at just the right moment. It is also loaded with "Fun Facts" about the park that you can listen to as well. The Gaperguides are available for pickup and return at all entrances to the park. You rent it by the day and it is pretty reasonable for the great information it provides you. Just search for Gaperguide on the internet if you are heading to Yellowstone. Good ...
... were actually waiting for the cars to give them some space before crossing the road. Believe it or not, some of the cars were trying to get closer to the bison, leading them to back off. This continued for a while. While it was fascinating to watch, it must have been very stressful for the bisons.
Finally we got to the visitors center. The kids and kirthi saw a movie about Yellowstone and we ...
... Seriously, what a bunch of arseholes.
West Yellowstone is a nice little town. You almost literally drive out the gate of the park into the town. We checked into the "Alpine Motel". It isn't big and the parking is kind of chaotic, but the owners are lovely people, and very obliging. The room was small but pretty comfy.
We didn't do much that night, just had tea at "The Slippery Otter", a kind of pub a block or two up from the motel and settled in for the ...
