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 :-)

... of theatre. On Sunday mornings when we are not driving, we like to attend a local church. WY had few churches other than Catholic or Mormon, but we decided to visit the WY Church of Christ. It was surprising to find a C of C since most communities on our travels didn't have one. We drove the 15 or so blocks across town to a lovely, newly constructed church building...with three cars in the lot. That was a little smaller than we had anticipated! However ...

The magmatic heat that caused those three eruptions still powers the geysers and hot springs today. And no where in the world are there as many geysers as in Yellowstone. There are over 300 of them. Geologists differ in their predictions but some say it is time for another massive eruption!

... pots, with the most interesting being a large pit of gray oozy clay, bubbling and shooting out splashes of mud that solidify instantly into crazy posts, piles, and other shapes. We watched the mud pot for about 15 minutes, totally mesmerized by the activity of the different areas in it, gurgling like a science fiction movie and squirting out in all directions. The photos do not do it justice, so we'll post a ...
... over towards Old Faithful we were slowed down by a traffic jam with people seated along the road with big lens cameras and telescopes focused on a mamma and baby bison laying in the trees. They were quite a ways from the road but it looked like the momma was laying down and the calf was either nursing or nestled up against the momma. A little further we saw several elk grazing in a meadow and crossing a river. As we neared Old Faithful we drove ...

Mud Volcano could not be passed up so we stopped. Wow! The sulfur smell was nearly gagging. Vents in the asphalt of the parking lock belched nasty smelling sulfur vapors. There was one mud pot where the water sizzled as it hit the hot rocks. One thing I found amazing
was how many species of plants were able ...
