... a bridge and crossed to the other side of the lake and waited for Al and Carol for a while but there was no sight of them so we decided to head to Jackson for lunch/dinner. A while later we rode through Montpellier which is a really cute little town. There are heaps of seats in the main street held up by statues of cute little bear statutes. Everything has bears in it here. A while later we rode through Afton which ...
Up early at 5:30 as planned. Unfortunately the Hayden Valley which is the place to see animals was surrounded in heavy fog, so much so that you could hardly see the road, let alone the valley. Cr*p. After a couple of hours of driving around and stopping at various places, the fog began to lift and we finally spotted a few bison, an elk in the forest and apparently a grey wolf but he was so far away we couldn't get ...
... with a "Hello there, nice day for it" in the most enthusiastic English accent i can muster. The challenge for me is to beat them to acknowledging us, which is not hard since it seems that people out on hikes want nothing less than fellow human contact, that's where the chirpy English accent comes in. This seems to extra **** people off. So far i have a 100 percent record at recording the first hello as i ...
... raining heavy so it was back to town and a look around the shops and an ice cream before bed.
Yesterday we headed off early on a bison hunt. We didn't find any bison but we saw the Steamboat Geyser, Mammoth Spring and Ennis Falls as well as a variety of wildlife. Very busy place Yellowstone. When we got back to the motel it was time to change, grab some dinner at a 50's diner and head to the local rodeo, only a few drops of rain this time. Clown was very funny!
... Star Geyser the hike is 8 km round trip hiking along side Firehole River. This hike takes you to a cone shape geyser that erupts for 30 minutes every 3 hours. We were a bit disappointed as when we arrived at Lone Star Geyser as it had just finished erupting, we were not prepared to sit around for another 3 hours so we ate our picnic lunch & headed back to Old Faithful Inn to clean up ready for another tour of the roof top at Old Faithful Inn, for the ones that did not go up the ...

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
