Best value in West Yellowstone.
After I booked a room and before leaving on our trip the owner called and explained that he had a plumbing problem in the room I had reserved but he had a comparable room if that was okay. I told him that was fine. Upon checking in I was told because it wasn’t the room I had originally wanted I would be given a $63 credit. Wow! The room was great. The owner came by to make sure we were happy. Wow! He also invited us to a burger fry starting at 8 pm for all employees and guests. It was the night of July 4th so to celebrate he invited all for burgers. Wow! We decided not to go because we ate earlier. It was right outside our room and it sounded like everyone had a great time. Each guest is given a $10 voucher for a meal at the Timberline restaurant next door. Food was good. The Madison is the only place we will stay in West Yellowstone. We’ll be back!!

Fun in West Yellowstone
We really enjoyed our stay here. We could not asked for more from the staff. They were friendly, accommodating, and informative. This hotel is really minutes from the gates of West Yellowstone. This is a very old hotel but it is very well taken care of. I really felt not only safe but really welcome here.

Love this place!!
Another great stay at the Historic Madison Hotel in West Yellowstone, Montana. Wonderful owners and a great staff. You’re missing out if you haven’t checked it out. Wonderful rooms just as it was at the turn of the century. No tv or fancy stuff that you don’t need anyway.

My boyfriend and I booked a trip at the Madison (Hostel) on a whim and I’m so glad we did. Our room was clean and cozy! We were right next to the balcony which is nice to relax at the end of a long day exploring Yellowstone. We were right above the gift shop and we were warned prior to checking in that it could get noisy but it didn’t bother us at all. The restroom/showers were down the hall but we had a sink in our room. I would definitely stay here again!

Yellowstone-nice rooms-great gift shop
So we visited Yellowstone about a week & a half ago-amazing place as the different aspects of the park is enough to make your head spin but this is about our stay at the Historic Madison Hotel.
This review is simply about our stay which was for 3 nights.
The Co-vid experience is something that has affected all aspects of life & being on the road looking for a nice,comfortable place to just relax & unwind is pretty tough to do but can be done safely.
Our room was in the 1912 building which only houses 6 rooms.(upstairs-no elevator which the web site does say they do not have).
The room had a queen size bed,dresser-a luggage rack & was equipped with an air conditioner along with a bathroom/tub & sink.The room was pretty quiet but as stated on the Hotel's web site:the walls are not insulated so you will hear people next to your room & we found that old buildings are hard to quiet down.
There are 2 public showers at the end of the hall & two bathrooms.
The showers are nice & large but trying to time when is the best time to use them may take some planning.
The downstairs features a great staff of folks who were very kind and helpful but we did find that what may seem the norm as in clean towels/wash clothes for the duration of your stay is not standard practice as the Hotel is practicing being economical so I did have to ask for another wash cloth which the response was:did you not have towels/wash clothes in your room..well yes...but there are two people so 2 sets of these items will only last...1 night-his wash cloth/towel & her wash cloth/towel-staying 3 nights....
The gift shop is pretty amazing as it features everything Yellowstone & the folks will ship to you any items you like except wild animals...just saying.
Back to the room...The room is nice but basic-there is no television (in the Hotel they have an area where you can sit down & flip the channels on the big screen-just relax and enjoy the quiet.
The Hotel does have wi-fi.There is a fridge downstairs where you can keep some of your cold items & the Hotel is two blocks from Yellowstone.There are a few restaurants right next door-the Timberline & the Old Town Cafe,both of which have there specialties.
Now let me say that We simply chose this place because it was close to our destination,the info we found on their web site was reasonable & we didn't want a room that was overpriced or offered a lot and your paying a lot...that we didn't want.
So our visit was rather nice as the location was great & the Staff was awesome.
The one thing we found though was that the cleaning of our room never happened-we didn't see signs that someone came by to freshen up the bed/towels/wash cloths or empty our trash(we stayed for 3 nights).
Lastly we found the showers to be nice but we did also notice that again the bathrooms (public but for guests only-you have a key to access) & showers had not been cleaned.
We liked the rooms,location but would of loved the fact that even in today's crazy world of viruses & such that there was a lil more concern on the lil larger things like towels/showers and such.
