Bottom Line

The 102-room budget Gray Wolf Inn and Suites is a popular, well-priced motel in tiny West Yellowstone, Montana. Location is the star at Gray Wolf, which is situated a half mile from the entrance to Yellowstone National Park and across the street from the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center, making it a good base for exploring the area. The casual, laid-back Gray Wolf is popular with snowboarders and families. Rooms, which include suites with kitchenettes, are huge, clean, and cheerful, if somewhat dated. Those with a little more room in the budget might prefer the more modern Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone.

Relaxed and spirited, catering to families, snowboarders, and bus groups touring Yellowstone

The Gray Wolf Inn and Suites is a spirited, three-story motel that caters to families, snowboarders, and other visitors to Yellowstone National Park. The decor and architecture are slightly dated, but guests make the place lively and fun, and contribute to the casual, relaxed vibe. The cheerful, sunlit lobby features a stone fireplace and ranks of tables and chairs, where breakfast is served. The Gray Wolf is home base for adventures in skiing or wildlife spotting, and it frequently plays host to bus tours; at these times, the breakfast line can get long, and the lobby can get crowded, but guests seem to take it in stride and the ambience stays low-key and friendly. The Gray Wolf is an excellent choice for those traveling with pets -- it  caters to four-legged clients and has received a Fido Award in recognition of its pet hospitality.


Half a mile from Yellowstone Park, next door to the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center and IMAX Theater

Gray Wolf Inn and Suites is located in a tiny well-lit tourist town. The hotel is surrounded by hotels and small businesses, with plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The Oregon Short Line Restaurant, Branch Bar, and Casino are two blocks away. The Gray Wolf is next door to the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center, and across the street from the Yellowstone IMAX theater. The hotel is a three-minute drive to the West Entrance of Yellowstone National Park, making it a good spot to recharge between park visits. The airport is an eight- to 10-minute drive from the property.


Clean and spacious, with roomy bathrooms

The 102 rooms at the Gray Wolf Inn and Suites are large, clean, and simply decorated, if a touch dated. The casual decor incorporates wallpaper borders, wall-to-wall carpeting, and mirrored closet doors -- very 1980s -- but there are warm touches, such as the cute stuffed husky that welcomes guests to their rooms. Large suites include kitchens for families and groups. Rooms have king- or queen-size beds, and bathrooms are spacious, with shower/tub combos and toiletries. Rooms on the third floor are the quietest. All rooms come with flat-screen TVs with satellite channels and pay movies, Nintendo, mini-fridges (suites have full refrigerators), microwaves, and coffeemakers.


Free continental breakfast, ski storage, indoor pool, and guest laundry

The Gray Wolf Inn and Suites offers free continental breakfast daily in the lobby. There is no hotel restaurant, but, upon check-in, guests are given a coupon to the nearby Branch Restaurant, which serves a menu that relies on locally sourced ingredients and regional craft beers in a casual dining room. Skiers and snowboarders will likely appreciate the on-site ski storage facilities. The hotel also has an indoor pool, hot tub, and sauna. The Gray Wolf has a computer station in the lobby, and a guest laundry room with four washer/dryers. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
