We waited too long and couldn't get in to the Alpine Motel, and the Pioneer was only one we could get for three nights while visiting Yellowstone National Park. The first night we were in a kitchen unit with a king bed, but had to move for the next two nights. The kitchen unit was marginal and had food crumbs...

This little motel is definitely a throwback place but it's very cute and clean. The hot water takes a few minutes to get to your room which I think, just adds to the charm and the whole experience of the place. It's near the center of town but it's far enough away to nice and quiet. There's a nice coin...

At the peak of the travel season, this was one of the only motels available at the time of our visit. The owner, Cheryl, was very nice and accommodating. although room was very small and dated, it was clean and satisfactory for a stay while visiting Yellowstone National Park. Wi Fi was provided though slow.

I agree with most of what was said by other reviewers. This is very good value and a good fit for the feel of yellowstone. It is small, rustic , quiet, homey and cute. With nice touches like handmade quilts and curtains and a lot of wood. We got a family unit with a kitchen, and two rooms which comfortably...

This is a very rustic motel. Accommodations are cramped. Rooms are okay, clean. Bathroom could use some modern updates. Electrical extension cords running all over the place, don't know if the meet standards but did not have any problems. There are some cabin style units which offer a bit more space and would recommend. The price was right and the...

This small downtown motel offers excellent service and good value for money. The room is nice and clean. The facility is adequate and sufficient. The proprietor Cheryl was especially helpful and considerate. We look forward to our next return stay!

Nice mom and pop motel. It has a rustic, retro, and cabin like quality. It is dated, but that is what I like about it. If you want brand new, go to the boring chains. They (chains) have their place, but for this kind of trip, the mom and pops are perfect! The room was small, but it was super...

The place was very clean, except the carpet. (it had been raining a lot though) They allowed my dog, which was important to us. The bathroom was very tiny and the fixtures were very small -- felt like I was in a camper. The mirror was very old -- hard to use. Fine for sleeping in but you wouldn't want...
