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 fog is thick as soup and when we get there we will have to wait a few hours for the fog to lift.
This canyon feature is 20 miles long with widths of 1,500 to 4,000 feet. The upper falls is 109 feet tall and the lower falls are 308 feet. We start with the south rim and drive to Artist Point to see the lower falls. Spectacular is a great word. Then on ...
... sight. We exited the park and entered the town of West Yellowstone, Montana, around 9:30PM. We did some grocery shopping, checked into the motel, had dinner, a shower and bedtime. Tomorrow is another day.
We are hoping to see moose and bears. The kids have a ranger provided checklist of mammals in the park and those two are still open.
We woke up to a fresh morning and had a breakfast of cereal and hot Oregon chai. Our plan was to hike the elephant back mountain. We had to convince the kids a bit to leave the campsite and we were on our way to the trailhead, which was pretty close. Unfortunately, just when we were taking a left turn to the trailhead, a van with a trailer crashed into our van from the back. To cut a long story short, we had to handle ...
... Wi-fi was free and included in the price. The total cost is $32 per night ($24 for two people and $4 each additional person).
I did not sleep well. I awoke from a dream hearing footsteps and saw people shadows walking around the tent. I don’t know if the girl and guy were on the sidewalk or walking around our tent. I hit the tent and they quickly moved to the middle of the road. I went out to make sure our bikes were still there, and the car was still locked. All was ...
... Our last leg of the driving tour took us to the north shore of Yellowstone Lake, which impressively sits at 7,733 feet and has a maximum depth of 410 feet. In its entirety, the lake spans a huge chunk of the southeast part of the park. We found a picnic area on the lakeshore, and ate a lovely dinner overlooking the water. After dinner, we packed up and drove off to watch the sunset over Yellowstone River on our way back to our Lonesomehurst abode on the banks of Hebgen ...
