West Yellowstone's City Center Motel
Travel Blogs from West Yellowstone
We started our 4th with a western adventure style river bath on the banks of our campsite. First stop in Yellowstone: Old Faithful. We found it quite patriotic to watch one of earth's natural eruptions for America day. Unfortunately hundreds of other people had the same brilliant idea. We failed to anticipate the crowds at America's most popular national park on it's most popular summer holiday weekend. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the show. Continuing along the park ...
... the hi-viz made us feel at home! Had a nice chat to a few other tourists as well. Dinner was at the Old Faithful Inn which was built at the end of the 19 century. It has the most amazing foyer with balconies looking down. The dining room is also original and huge. We had a lovely meal. I had trout and then Bison hot pot while Regan had bratwurst and then the most divine slow cooked pork dish. We walked the long route back to our hotel room. It has been a great ...
... whole winter haha, as it's Presidents weekend which means its a stat day on Monday. We rang lots of companies and went in to a few and were lucky to get onto a snow coach tour to Old Faithful for tomorrow. We had originally wanted to do a Snowmobile tour but as the weather was cold and it was snowing we were happy to only have the option of a heated snow coach. It was $119 ...
... motorhome, write and mail postcards and go grocery shopping. We needed a day like this, to catch up. John and I did emails, uploaded pictures and looked at options for the second part of the trip. Elena and Ariana finished their second French exercise and we were able to mail it. Fantastic.
In the afternoon, we walked around West Yellowstone. The stores that were still opened during this low season were packed ...
... to you. Nature at its best.
We see groups of buffalos from the car but also while we are walking on the Firehole Lake Drive, one of the areas that has more geysers: the Great Fountain and the White Dome, with an enormous cone. Again, you turn around and see steam in all directions. (I was also turning around to see if any animal was too close to us). One of our favorites is the Surprise Pool with turquoise water ...

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.
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.
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.
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
