    Historical Traveler Reviews West Yellowstone's City Center Motel

    Nice place


    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.

    Excellent value


    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.

    Fantastic Place with Few Complaints


    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??

    Turns out this is a great little small motel in the heart of West Yellowstone. Our room was only a 2-Queen bed room, but it was very roomy. We were on the bottom floor, right next to the kitchen, but never heard any noise. Granted, we were gone from before dawn till nearly dark every day, but noise was never a problem.

    Desk service was fantastic, daily maid service was also great. Never had to go ask for anything like towels, etc.

    One small complaint was parking. I drive a large Chevy Tahoe and parking it was a squeeze some evenings after everyone else had come in. It seemed to me that there were not enough parking spaces for the number of rooms on the property, but I could just have been mistaken.

    Another small complaint was that the kitchen wasn't opened until 8:00 AM (I believe that was the time). We were usually out the door and gone to the park before 7:00 AM, and with their strict policy about cooking in the rooms, I couldn't get out my own portable microwave or hot plate to have a hot breakfast. I would like to see them have the kitchen open by 6:00 AM or so for us early risers.

    Overall, I'm sure if I return to the area, I'd stay here again. I recommend this motel for any Yellowstone visitors.


    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.

    Great hospitatlity


    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"

    Fun Time


    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.

    Over all I was very satisfied being that the room was cheap, clean, and nice.

    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

It was too early for pictures of the middle geysers due to so much steam coming off the water it obscured the views of the pools.The sun was starting to get hot at Old Faithful so we didn't stay long with the dogs in the truck. Saw the eruption, had a coffee and Danish at the Inn and of we went south to West Thumb. The plan was to maybe go to further south, but on the climb up to the continental divide we ran ...

    Old Faithful and Geysers

    ... saw several very beautiful thermal pools bubbling away. A couple had an intense blue color due to the chemical composition of the water and surrounding land. Others the runoff from the pools presented bright red hues in contrast to the white salt deposits surrounding the pools. There were plumes of steam everywhere. This basin was broken by patches of pine some still living but more that had died due to the chemical runoff.

    We got to Old Faithful about an hour before ...

    Our initial plan was to drive the Grand Loop Road to get the lay of the land and an overall feel for the park. Centrally located, the 145 mile road circles north and then south in a figure eight allowing access to the main developed areas of the park which include visitor centers, lodging, stores, and hiking trails to the natural sights. Our one planned stop was the Norris Geyser Basin but we figured we could make more as we traveled ...

The males though we're huge and very very different. We saw Old Faithful erupt and the. Drove to several other thermal basins in the park. There are many more geysers in Yellowstone aside from Old Faithful. On our travels we saw the Cliff Geyser, Jewel Geyser and the ...

    ... stopped in the visitor center and dad and I continued down the trail until it ended then we came back. We found a seat around the perimeter so the dogs could sit with us. We still had a great view of the geyser so we waited there. Finally the geyser blew and it was magnificent as always. After a quick lunch of sandwiches and bison chili at the Snow lodge we were back on the road. We stopped at Black Sand basin ...
