The smell is horrible. The rooms are dirty and the beds are very uncomfortable. It's a $70 room at best not $200+. We will NEVER stay here again. We could not believe how bad it was. Yellowstone is beautiful though.

As the property owner we appreciate guests who take the time to help us do a better job. Unfortunately sometimes reviews cause us to wonder about their motivation. I had my staff check our files and we could not find a Michael, with a last name beginning with H within three days of the date this review was posted. Perhaps...

Since on a long trip and the date was firmed up about 5 days ahead, choices were limited in and around Yellowstone National Park. This hotel is within minutes from the West entrance to the park. The room was large, clean, comfortable and provided a great night of rest. The breakfast buffet is included and offered a good selection of...

I couldn't find a hair dryer in the room, called the front desk, and the response was if you can't find it in the room, we don't have extra hair dryers. Didn't even apologize. Also got the smallest old style tv I've ever seen that has no sound. Will not stay here again.

Julie, Thanks for taking the time to comment. I'm sorry you couldn't find a hair dryer. We do provide them, but unfortunately many of them are "borrowed long-term" by guests. Our housekeeping staff tries to keep the front desk informed so that they can be replaced as soon as possible. As for the TV, we are replacing all of the...

The hotel is in walkable distance to a grocery store and many different restaurants all less than a 10 minutes walk. The room was a comfortable size with clean sheets and towels and hair dryers. The fridge was not working for us so it may just not be plugged in. There was also no mircowave available in the room but...

We stayed here for a single night after a hole day in yellowstone. It was alright for the price since the prices in west yellowstone is high. The room was alright and so was the bed. The restroom was small and when taking a shower the restroom floor will be floated. The town is cosy with small shops but with...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Staying in April is problematic in West Yellowstone. The park is not yet opened and the properties are just being "opened" for the season. I'm delighted that your stay was good and would encourage you to return during the summer or fall to see the community in full operation. There...

Stayed here for three nights. The service is good and the hotel fits nicely into the scenery of west Yellowstone. The staff are friendly and very competent. I'd definitely go back and stay there. Prices are reasonable for that town. Eating wise, go to Pete's pizza.

What a great review, short, direct and to the point. I of course like it a lot since it is complementary of our property and staff. We are working hard to improve the property and our services. We are pleased with the progress we've made since we took ownership at the very end of 2012. Please come again soon and...

We had a very nice visit to West Yellowstone, and were lucky to find the White Buffalo had rooms available. Our room was very cozy and nice.

I'm a bit surprised that you said the hotel was hard to find. It is on the main town park and is the best lit hotel in town and the exterior is very bright at night. The shower cord is a test we are doing in a few rooms. It is a mechanism to prevent people from turning on the...
