Alpine Motel: West Yellowstone Hotel Great Stay!
Spotlessly clean and updated, near the center of town and minutes to Yellowstones West Gate. The owners are on site and very nice folks! All first floor units guarantee you won't have big foot stomping around above you. Stayed in lots of chain hotels and this beats them easily in service, and quiet surroundings.

Silver Gate Cabins: Cabins in the Woods
Our accomodations for our 2nd trip to Yellowstone, Sept 2006
Our little one room cabin was a great home base for our Yellowstone adventures. It was nestled with a few others down a little road in the woods. We had a little kitchenette to make coffee for the morning, prepare our lunches for the next day, and heat up a meal for dinner. A little table and benches served as our "desk" area, though most people would use it as a place to eat. The bed was incredibly comfortable, perfect after along day of hiking around the park.
If you are visiting with more than just 2 people, larger cabins are available.
One fantastic bonus of staying in these little out of the way cabins is the wildlife! We heard wolves howling throughout the night and a couple of bison could be seen daily wandering around right by the general store that is also the main office for the cabins. (I've heard they see a lot of moose as well, sadly we didn't have any walking though town a'la Northern Exposure)

Hibernation Station: West Yellowstone
Awesome cottages; a bit on the expy side but well worth the money.
Excellent service, located a block away from the park. We had a 3 queen bed place, with a full kitchenette. Costed us about $250 per day for a full bedroom and additionally 2 queen beds in the living place, a full kitchenette and a dining table.
clean, private and great location.

The Pony Express: Nice, cheap hotel
A nice big suite with two rooms each with a double bed plus bathroom. Cost less per person (3) than the hostel.

Madison Hotel: Inexpensive Hostel
Everything from the Creaking floors and old fashioned door handle to the mounted animal heads and all wood construction give it a truly olden experience. The price is right too about half what any other hotel we checked at. We only paid 42.90 per night.
The hotel was built in 1912 with a style of log construction with saddle notched corner timbering. It is the oldest existing hotel in west Yellowstone. Electricity and running water were added later and the main rooms come without a toilet or shower. There are two showers and restrooms for either sex at the end of the main hall. The electrical outlets and conduit runs in visible site as it was not part of the original construction. the hotel also has the unique distinction of being on the National Historic Register.

Gardiner Travelodge: Just outside the park's north entrance
Once again I did not hit the mark with a great place to stay. At least not for our honeymoon. It looked like more than a Travelodge on the outside with it's log cabin exterior, but inside same old motel room. Now , if it had not been our Honeymoon it would have been just fine. I think the cabin at Signal mountain in Grand Teton spoiled me a little bit! But it was more than affordable, and had a nice location. Sometimes you just need to get out of the park for a little bit!
One thing I was not a fan of was actually the fan! The bathroom fan is connected to the light, and that baby is super loud.
A hairdryer is provided.
Continental breakfast in the morning.

Roosevelt cabins: Wooden cabins in a great part of Yellowstone
This is a great, out of the way place to stay. No huge crowds, and it's one of the cheapest places to sleep in the park (outside of camping). You can rent a cabin, with a wood fireplace (wood is supplied for free) for about $40/couple. You will need the fireplace, even in summer, because nights often get chilly. The front desk will give you extra blankets if you ask.
The downside: shared bathrooms. The upside: incredible views in a more mellow atmosphere than the southern, more well-known parts of the park.
There is a western-style restaurant nearby, or you can ride horses or take a covered wagon to an open-air cookout. Very fun, especially for kids. Like everywhere in the park, make reservations well in advance. The cabins are only open during the warmer months.
You aren't near the most famous highlights of the park, like the grand canyon of the yellowstone river or old faithful, so the cabins are much less crowded than other lodges in the park. But you are near Lamar Valley, which is the place to see wolves, usually at sunrise and/or sunset. Take a lawn chairs and some beers. Even if you don't see wolves, it's a beautiful place to watch sunset and see other wildlife. I saw a grizzly bear and lots (50 or more) bison there.

Other Campgrounds: For Your Information Only
Besides the campgrounds I have discussed, you may also reserve sites in Grant, which is located on the south side of the park's loop road. This campground has flush toilets and a dump station. Although there is no electricity available, generators are permitted. There is also a laundry and showers available near by for a fee.
Some first come, first serve campgrounds for which you cannot reserve a site are Indian Creek, Lewis Lake, Pebble Creek, Slough Creek, and Tower Fall. These each have vault toilets. Again there is no electricity, and generators are not allowed in these campgrounds. These would be great for people camping with tents. We have looked at Indian Creek, and found it quite nice, located in a wooded area. We have also driven through Pebble Creek campground, and found that it is one of the best places to stay if you are looking for wolves in Lamar Valley. Slough Creek is also in Lamar valley and would be another good location to look for wolves and other wild animals from
Norris campground is also a first come first serve campground. Located in the Norris Basin area, and near meadows and a river, you may be treated to seeing bison and elk on a regular basis. This campground has flush toilets and generators are permitted. My photo was taken in the nearby Norris Geyser Basin.
I would recommend making reservations in advance for all accommodations where reservations are accepted. Arrive early for those that are first come, first serve.

Mammoth Campground: A Campground In the NW Part of the Park
Mammoth Campground is located in the Mammoth Hot Springs area, we have only stayed in this campground in the winter, since it is the only one open that time of year. There are no hook ups, showers, nor is there a dump station. There are flush toilets, and you may use your generator from 8:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. This is the best campground to explore Mammoth and Larmar Valley from.
You may hear wolf howling from here, and in the fall when the elk are in rutting season, you will hear them bugling.

Best Western Mammoth Springs: Gardiner, MT
There are very nice Hotels in the park but they are also very expensive. Gardiner, MT is on the North entrance to the park and just 5 miles North of the Mammoth Springs Area. This Hotel is nothing to write home about but is adequate and one of the better values around.

Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel
This hotel is located in the north end of the park in the Mammoth Hot Springs area. The hotel is very old, furnishings are outdated, walls very thin. Once the first person rises in the morning, the whole hotel is up. The lobby is very nice and newly renovated. There is a gift shop and resturant across the street.
We had a mid-range room which was very large on a corner with 2 windows. It did have a private bath and old fashioned tub, no shower. Rooms with private bath have either a tub or shower. Many of the others have a sink only, showers and toilets are shared down the hall.
We paid about $90 a night which I thought was steep considering the old-fashioned lodging.
As in all the Park's lodging, there are no TV's, radios, air conditioning and internet connections.
Managed by Xanterra Corporation. Reservations can be made on-line at:
All of the park's lodging fills up quickly so reservations should be made at least 8 months in advance.
Elk are a common site right outside the hotel and restaurant. Within a short walking distance to the Hot Spring Terraces. Across the street from the visitor's center and Fort Yellowstone.

Old Faithful Snowlodge
Located in the Old Faithful area, the Snowlodge is the newest hotel in the park, built in 1999. It received the Cody Award for Western Design. Keeping in tuned with nature and it's surroundings the decor is wildlife and park themed. It's constructed of heavy timber log columns with a cedar shingle roof.
There are no TV's, radios, internet connections or air conditioning as in all of the Park's lodges. It's managed by Xanterra and reservations can be made on-line http://www.xanterra.com/properties/yellowstone.htm
Probably the most modern hotel in the park and the nicest of the 3 lodges we stayed at.
Good restaurant, gift shop, short walking distance to Old Faithful and the Visitor's Center. Next door to the Old Faithful Inn.
Glad we did not stay at The Old Faithful Inn since it was very crowded, busy and dark inside.
Open through the winter.

Hibernation Station: West Entrance to Yellowstone
Can't beat the bang for your buck here.
Had to use the fireplace most nights in April and the Jacuzzi tub was nice after hiking in the park for 8-10 hrs a day.
