Yellowstone Vacations On-Site Amenities

At Yellowstone Vacations, we are excited to provide you with a number of ways to relax and have fun just steps away from your hotel room or cabin. Sure, there are endless opportunities for adventure in Yellowstone National Park, or even in charming downtown West Yellowstone, but at the end of the day who doesn't like to kick up their feet and enjoy a few creature comforts? With options including video games, swimming, bicycle rentals, and even roasting S'mores over the fire, there is an activity for everyone at Yellowstone Vacations.

We are pleased to present you with the following on-site amenities.

Indoor Heated Pools

No stay at Yellowstone Vacations would be complete without going for a dip in our indoor pools! Heated indoor swimming pools are available year-round at Gray Wolf Inn and Suites and Holiday Inn® West Yellowstone, and seasonally at Yellowstone Park Hotel (mid-April to mid-October). Guests of the Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone are welcome to use the pool at Gray Wolf Inn and Suites during the winter, and at Yellowstone Park Hotel in the summer.

Complimentary bicycle rentals are now available during the summer months at the Holiday Inn® West Yellowstone, and Yellowstone Park Hotel! Guests of the Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone can check out a bicycle at Yellowstone Park Hotel. Whether you are a skilled cyclist or simply wanting to re-live some memories from your childhood, riding a bike is a fun way to get some exercise and stay in shape while also exploring some of the most beautiful scenery West Yellowstone has to offer.

Outdoor Fire Pits

What would a vacation to Yellowstone be without the time-honored tradition of gathering around the campfire? You won't find this feature at most hotels, but we've got the campfire handled when you stay at the Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone, Gray Wolf Inn and Suites, or Yellowstone Park Hotel! At the Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone, you will find a community fire pit near each cluster of cabins where you can meet your neighbors and share stories of your day's adventures. We also recently installed a gas fire pit right next door at Gray Wolf Inn and Suites on our new outdoor patio, and another at Yellowstone Park Hotel in our new outdoor entry area! And, just to make things a little sweeter, complimentary S'mores kits are available at all three of these lodging options. Come pull up a chair and sit a spell, and warm yourself by the comforting fire.

Pet Friendly

Here at Yellowstone Vacations, we know that all members of your family are important, including the four-legged ones! West Yellowstone does not have a ton of pet-friendly lodging, but we are proud to count three of our properties among these exclusive few: Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone, Gray Wolf Inn and Suites, and the Holiday Inn® West Yellowstone. We welcome dogs and cats, and offer a number of cozy pet friendly lodging options for your convenience. And to sweeten things just a bit more, there is NO PET FEE!

Free Yoga & Pilates Classes

Get your zen on with free Yoga and Pilates classes, available daily at 7:30 AM at the Holiday Inn® West Yellowstone! Wake up and come breathe, balance, and stretch with us. We will explore flexibility, build strength and develop control and endurance in the entire body. Our classes also have an emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance. Open to all guests, as well as to the public!

Explorer Cabins Camp Host

During the summer months at the Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone, we employ a Camp Concierge who can provide you with information about the area and give you some "local insider" tips on what to see and do during your stay in West Yellowstone. In addition, the Camp Concierge hosts a daily evening Happy Hour where you can enjoy a complimentary beer or glass of wine.

On-Site Laundry

Being on vacation means taking a break from the household chores of everyday life, but let's face it, sometimes there just isn't enough luggage space to pack all the clothes you'll need. The good news is, we have free laundry facilities available! Guest laundry is available year-round at the Holiday Inn® West Yellowstone and Gray Wolf Inn and Suites, and seasonally at the Yellowstone Park Hotel.

Heated Underground Parking

A winter trip to Yellowstone is an experience unlike any other, and will leave you with memories that will last a lifetime, but digging your car out of the snow each morning is not necessarily something you'll want to include in those memories. When you stay at Gray Wolf Inn and Suites, however, this is not a concern thanks to our heated underground parking! For some guests, this amenity alone is reason enough to stay at Gray Wolf Inn and Suites. Simply park and drive at your leisure, and don't worry about having to deal with the snow shovel.

Local Entertainment

There is no shortage of attractions to explore and trails to hike within Yellowstone National Park, but in terms of entertainment and places to eat, you'll find your options are pretty limited inside the Park. Thankfully, these are areas where West Yellowstone shines! Several favorites are located within easy walking distance of our hotels and cabins:
  • The Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center is directly across the street from Gray Wolf Inn and Suites and the Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone. Here, you can see gray wolves, grizzly bears, and other Yellowstone wildlife in a way you can't see them inside the Park - up close and personal!
  • The Yellowstone Giant Screen IMAX Theatre sits adjacent to the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center, and shows movies about Yellowstone as well as current box office hits on a 6-story tall screen.
  • The Oregon Shortline 1903 Railroad Car is located inside the Holiday Inn® West Yellowstone, right next to The Branch Restaurant and Bar. This is a carefully restored historic railroad car that once belonged to the Vice President of the Union Pacific Railroad. Self-guided tours are available daily.
With many other local restaurants and shops, as well as visitor centers, shooting ranges, theaters, cinemas, and more, West Yellowstone is the perfect home base for your next Yellowstone vacation.
