Clean and Convenient
The Brandin’ Iron Inn was a nice clean motel in West Yellowstone. The employees were friendly and accommodating. We were surprised that a sack breakfast was included with our room. It contained a piece of fruit, a bagel, cream cheese, a yogurt, and granola. The location is perfect for visiting Yellowstone.

Winter get away....
Room was comfortable and not to be out done by the STAFF. They were great. We stayed for 7 days and they made sure our stay was a pleasurer. We have stayed here and other places in West Yellowstone over the years and have gotten the most bang for our buck at the Brandin' Iron. We will return..

Comfortable and Clean
We stayed in Brandon Iron Inn for one night to rest after getting around yellowstone. The front desk person was very nice. The price was a good deal. I never thought we will have a to-go breakfast. The room was clean, and warm enough to rest. Overall, It was a great experience. Location to everything is a plus, gas station, restaurant etc. I will definitely going back to Brandon Iron Inn again!

Great location, but a bit overpriced
The hotel was in a great location. The room was a very good size. It had a refrigerator and but no microwave. However, a communal microwave on the 1st floor was available. They offered breakfast on the go. I do feel that for the price, the room supplies given were quite stingy. They only gave us 1 roll of toilet paper even though we were staying for 3 nights. We had to go to the front desk several times to ask for more toilet paper, soap, etc. The parking was also rather tough. If you arrived after sundown, you more than likely end up parking on the street. So for that price, I feel things could have been better.

Book Your Room Early in this Town!
Yellowstone is a stunning area and well worth a trip. But the town of West Yellowstone is "touristy" IMHO, and since they are the only game in the immediate west Yellowstone area, can get away with it. (if don't stay here, routed into Idaho or further north toward Bozeman) Book your motel rooms early because the town's available rooms fill up fast. We decided to stay in the area at the last minute and apparently got the "last room" in town which happened to be at an overflow area for this Inn. We paid through the nose ($189.00 PT) for two people, no breakfast, and a few hours sleep. But , didn'tfeel we could safely travel on, so we stayed. We were rented what I would call a "hunter house", which would have been suitable for up to 6 people or more. It would have been an acceptable location for a large family as it had a kitchen, 3 sleeping areas, etc. We asked if a price adjustment could be made and was told no. The cabin unit was older with some renovation and appeared clean enough but could have used some attention. The front door to the unit only opened halfway before sticking on the carpet. An outlet was hanging out of the wall which was not great, and light bulbs were not working, which seems someone should have noticed. Upon finding a door off the kitchen that was unlocked and easily opened, we discovered two storage areas for the motel, stacked with stuff, and with a back door unlocked and open to the street for whoever might have decided to walk right in. It was creepy. Glad that we found it, got the door locked, and had no unwanted visitors! Parking was not great and the corner where the room was located was very dark. (no street lighting). When we checked in and out, masks were either not worn, or not worn properly. I understand that not everyone likes masks, but in a heavily touristed area, would seem smart to think enough of the people supporting their town to practice this small gesture of additional safety. The Inn is located about two blocks from the west entrance to YNP so that is convenient.
