Staying in West yellowstone

by fendleroc

Hello

As Yellowstone is already full for 2010, I plan to stay two days in W Yellowstone. How is the BW Desert Inn or is there a better option?

Thank you

My wife and I spent a few days at the Holiday Inn Sun Spree Resort. Fantastic and close to the west entrance of Yellowstone. Park Ranger Visitor Station is only one block away. See my hotel tip for West Yellowstone: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/736c8/c9165/3/

I'm planning on staying at the CrossWInds in June - I could only get 2 days at the Old Faithful Inn, so I'm doing a day before and a day afterwards at the Crosswinds. I made the Old Faithful Inn reservations at the end of October - not too long ago. I couldn't get the internet reservation to 'take' so I had to phone them.

Hi all,

I stayed at the Pony Express in September at 65$. for 1 night. Nothing out of the ordinary but only a couple of hundred metres from west gate.

A heads up for those also planning to visit Mammoth and Canyon from WY. At the moment until further notice the road between Madison and Norris is closed for work on a new bridge. This means that to visit on the east and north you have to go all the way round via Old Faithful and Lake. Worth checking on the Yellowstone site for when they think the road might open again.

There are quite a few reviews of this BW on trip advisor, on a scale of 1/10 looks to be around a 4, you might read some of them, myself after reading them, I think I would look for something better.

The Holiday Inn in W. Yellowstone is very nice. They did a remodel about 3 years ago - so very new. They are kid friendly and breakfast is free.

Most of the hotels in W. Yellowstone are small road side type hotels, other than this one. But they are very inexpensive.

BEWARE!!! There are some real dumps in West Yellowstone, if you want to save, but still get a good room:

Rustic Wagon Wheel-cabins-furnished (Very nice, no ruffians allowed, may have to call a few times)
Parade Rest Guest Ranch-cabins-furnished (9miles out, family fun, may have to call a few times/ranch)

Travel Tips for West Yellowstone

West Yellowstone is a great...

by basstbn

West Yellowstone is a great place to stay while visiting the Yellowstone National Park. Accomodations and eating establishments are abundant; and I found to be reasonably priced in early June. That might not be the case if you're traveling in July or August, however.

And the wolves.....

by annk

The Grizzly & Wolf Center agreed to take wolves from 4 different litters born in captivity at another center. Wolves once in captivity can never be returned to the wild. Seven reside here and they now form a cohesive pack.

"Grizzley & Wolf Recovery Center"

I expected to see more wildlife here, but the highlight was the children's program which allowed the kids to go into the grizzley pen, after the bears were led out of course, to hide lots of food for the bears to forage.

A Gateway to Yellowstone National Park

by annk

A small town I never would have considered visiting if it were not for mrclay2000 and his W. Yellowstone page featuring the "Grizzly Center". I figured my chances of seeing bears in the wild were slim and opted to view them here.

The drive to this small town was tremendously rewarding since the road parallels the Madison River and is home to numerous herds of elk and bison. I saw more wildlife that day then the rest combined.

The town obviously relies on tourism and has many hotels, restaurants, shops, a museum, The Grizzly Center and an IMAX theatre. Although we had lodging in the park, W. Yellowstone is a good alternative to the limited and somewhat expensive park lodging.
