West Yellowstone's City Center Motel

... entrance, the lines at the gates don't look normal. Cars are everywhere (not even close to straight lines) and people are standing around. As we get closer, we confirm the government has indeed shut down along with Yelllowstone (we surmise the animals won't get fed or get their cut of the photo royalties). People are livid. The rangers are polite, but firm. Most of the shut out visitors are foreigners and have probably spent a ...

... really annoying! Decided to head back out this evening to try and see more animals as dusk is also a good time to see them. Didn't see anything except some bison and a family of elk, which again were bloody miles away. We expected to see lots of animals in Yellowstone and close by the roads whereas we have realised most people here have mahoosive telescopes and binoculars to watch the animals as they are so far ...
Up at 6.15am ready for another day of adventure, before heading to Mammoth. First stop Fire Hole Spring & White Dome geyser, then onto Gibbon Falls. Driving along you are always critter spotting, in luck today with Elk & an injured Bison it so sad to see some of the injured animals & know they are prey for someone's next dinner (circle of life). When then headed towards Mammoth to explore the Terrace & to follow boardwalks to the thermal ...

Historical Traveler Reviews West Yellowstone's City Center Motel
This was a very, very clean hotel. I would definitely stay there again. It is an older very well maintained hotel. No in room phones or internet but I couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. Hope to stay there next time I'm in town.
We'd stay here again. The room was spacious and clean, the location is outstanding, and the price was right. This isn't a luxury hotel, but it's everything you need when you come home from a day at the park.
Great place for families
We just returned home from our third vacation in and around West Yellowstone. The City Center Motel has been our Motel of choice each time. Three of our adult children were with us, one is a world traveler (military) and has stayed is a great variety of places good and bad. We all feel the City Center is the place for comfort, excellent service from the staff, it is close to any day trips one would like to make and the rates are fantastic. We ate at several restaurants which were all within walking distance. We congratulate the owners and staff!! We will be back.
Loved the place!
We have stayed at the City Center Motel for the past 2 years, and will be staying there again in 2006. We found the rooms and kitchen facilities to be very pleasant. The rooms and facilities are clean, spacious,comfortable, and very affordable for we 2 seniors and/or our entire family, whatever the case may be on a particular trip. The town is within walking distance and is a super place to explore, the park and quake area are very close and easy to get to.
We just LOVE the Motel and the entire area.
My first time in West Yellowstone and we decide to go with this motel for a five night stay just from a brochure---dangerous, right??
Great rooms, great price
Stayed Sept, 10 and 11, 2005
Pretty good little motel, a little run down, very clean, low price, would recommend. No phones in rooms. Staff extremely friendly.
had a great time during our 2 day stay. The 2 gentlemen running the place were very friendly and helpful. Would recomend it to anyone who wants a relaxing and enjoyable "home away from home"
I was scared that this hotel was going to be a dump after searching around trying to find a hotel room that was even available and so cheap at the last moment. The rooms were big. We stayed in the 4 queen room. In the main room there was two queen beds a tv and a kitchen table. The air conditioning was nice also. Then there were to seperate room that had a queen bed each. The room was very clean and they did a good job each day we were there. The inn keeper was also very friendly and helpful. He told exactly were to go to see the bears. There isn't a microwave or fridge in any of the rooms but there is a kitchen area/hot tub area were they have some long tables and a stove and sink and full size fridge where you can go to cook.
Clean hotel, big rooms
We stayed in a 4 Queen room. Big room. Clean. NO PHONE. We were shocked by that. Pay phone is in with ice machine and it's hard to hear when someone's getting ice and needless to say, not very private. Had already booked room in advance and didn't know about senior discount.
When asked about senior discount she said we already had it, but I doubt this since we booked the rack rate as advertised. Good location.
Would stay there again at that price. Had hot tub and community kitchen. No pool or other amenities.
Friendly and affordable
This was our first vacation to West Yellowstone, and we loved it we will be back next year. The rooms at City Center Motel are all very clean and well taken care of. We love the idea of being able to cook your own food in the community kitchen. The managers Mike and laurie are two of the friendliest and nicest people we have ever met and go out of their way to make sure evrything is just right for your stay
