The rooms were very large, as was the bathroom. It seems like it is a newer hotel. We enjoyed staying out of a touristy area during our visit to Yellowstone. The beds were comfortable and the towels were nice and soft. The fridge was large in the room. Also, the room was well-lit. Lastly, I made a special request for my reservation before arriving and I received a prompt response from the hotel and my request was fulfilled. I thought the brown bag breakfast was satisfying. It included juice, muffin, yogurt, fresh fruit and a microwave entree. It was much better than I expected during this pandemic. The negatives I experienced were due to the pandemic which I hope the hotel can correct. None of the front desk employees wore face masks which I thought was disappointing considering every employee we encountered at local businesses wore masks. The staff was friendly, but I felt they should have been concerned about their guests’ health. (The woman working in the breakfast area did wear a mask and gloves, however.) The second thing that bothered me was that the desk and nightstand in my room had not been wiped down as they had apparent drink splatters on them. I stay in many hotels for work and I understand that sometimes things get overlooked. However, with the current pandemic, I would have expected housekeeping to be extra vigilant. I had my own wipes and cleaned the surfaces myself. Otherwise, I thought the hotel was nice and very comfortable.
