I stayed here for five nights at the end of April. I choose the Evergreen because it was less expensive then the larger hotels in the area, it was close to the Yellowstone entrance, and it was well rated on trip advisor.
Don't expect luxury. The "very good" rating reflects the clean, basic lodging available for the price. The rooms include a refrigerator and microwave. Also, the laundry room contains a large size ice machine, enough to supply everyone with ice for their coolers. You'll appreciate this when packing for the park. The WiFi works fine.
Sara and Logan are fine hosts. Sara bakes cookies for the afternoon, and muffins at breakfast. They were both helpful in providing advice about visiting the park.
On the other side of the ledger, the rooms are small and dark. There was only one chair in my room, which was hard and uncomfortable for watching TV, The flat screen TV was OK, but the local channel lineup left off PBS programming. There is one telephone available to everyone in the launfry room, but it was not working when I was there. Sara lent me her cell phone when I needed to make a call. West Yellowstone does not have pay phones, but there are pay phones in the park.
Most of my time was spent at Yellowstone. The room was acceptable, and the price was much appreciated in comparison to the neighbor properties. Try and book directly or on the website. I used booking.com, and I believe I was charged an extra fee for the privilege.
Thanks to Sara and Logan for the pleasant waystation while visting Yellowstone.

I'm glad you noticed our level of cleanliness as it is our number one priority.
As a note to future guests, PBS is not offered to lodging properties as part of the hospitality package, so it will not be on the channel listing. We did however conduct a survey with a group of our guests last year to put together the most well rounded channel listing we could provide.
Also, please see our website room description or contact our staff if you have any questions about what is included in each unit. Single queen rooms include one chair.
