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

... the most personal experience. Artist's Point/ Upper Falls was our next hike. This consisted of an incredible waterfall carved into canyons of bright colored rocks and plants. From the lookout we saw the dark blue Yellowstone river below, resulting from the 189 foot waterfall. The colors of the canyon seemed to melt into each other, as if they were a bunch of popsicles left out in the sun, then drained together into a river. We spent a good amount of time ...
... Grand Prismtic Spring because the fog was covering it. Harlie was pretty onery and needed a nap so we decided to skip Old Faithful and to drive over to Hayden Valley so I could watch the animals and let Harlie sleep. Once we got to Hayden Valley we saw a bunch of cars pulled over with a Ranger so we stopped and watched a grizzley bear cross the river and go up into the trees. It was awesome! Jeremy loved watching the bear in the water. We saw lots of buffalo ...
... there we headed up to the Black Plateau drive ( hip hop echoes in the hills there they say), but it was closed for the road conditions. We continued on to Wraith Falls, but due to the heatnow ...84 degrees!!!!!! We decided to skip it... Our final stop for the day was to visit the Petrified Tree monument... It was an ancient Redwood that was 50 million years old and there used to be three until 1907, but souvener takers dwindeled it down to this single fenced stump. A ...
... There are eastern and southern entrances to the huge park, but the western side and WY seemed the easiest to approach with 65' feet of rolling metal (40' motorhome + pickup). The little town is so dominated by the tourist industry that it's hard to see the actual town. Downtown is about six blocks of T-shirt shops, restaurants and endless hotels/motels/cabins.
We stayed in the Grizzly RV Park, a very nice, very large park where it seems ...
... 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.
