Yellowstone Vacations On-Site Amenities
Yellowstone National Park is Open!
Yellowstone's Upper and Lower Loops are now accessible to all visitors.
Please Note: The North entrance is currently closed, but will be re-opening as of October 15, 2022! Until then, visitors will need to enter through the West, South, or East.
Upon the re-opening of the North entrance, visitors will enter through the historic Roosevelt Arch, then take Old Gardiner Road, which is a temporary road to be used until repairs on the main road are complete.
For additional information, please visit the National Park Service website.
Please Note: At this time, some of our on-site amenities are currently unavailable due to changes being implemented in our effort to stop the spread of COVID-19. The safety of our guests and employees is our top priority, and we will strive to make these amenities safely available again as soon as possible. The indoor heated pools at the Holiday Inn® West Yellowstone and at Gray Wolf Inn & Suites are currently open and available for use by all overnight guests (guests at the Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone are welcome to use the indoor pool at Gray Wolf Inn & Suites). Free Pilates classes are also available Mondays and Thursdays at Town Park (on the corner of Canyon Street and Firehole Avenue) for all overnight guests.
For the latest information about our available services, please visit our Service Updates page.
We are pleased to present you with the following on-site amenities.
Indoor Heated PoolsNo 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.
Complimentary bicycle rentals are now available during the summer months at the Holiday Inn® West Yellowstone, Gray Wolf Inn and Suites, and Yellowstone Park Hotel! Guests of the Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone can check out a bicycle at Gray Wolf Inn & Suites. Whether you are a skilled cyclist or simply want to re-live some memories from your childhood, riding a bike is fun way to get some exercise and stay in shape while also exploring some of the most beautiful scenery West Yellowstone has to offer.
New for 2022 - e-Bike rentals are now available through the Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone Camp Host! Rentals are available 24 hours a day for $25/hour, and $25/kid for a trailer (for the duration of the rental). After regular Camp Host hours (8 AM - 10 PM), e-Bikes can be rented from Gray Wolf Inn and Suites.
Open to the public. Guests must be age 15+ to rent an e-Bike. E-Bikes may be ridden around town, on National Forest trails, and even into the Park!
Explorer Cabins Camp Host
During the summer months at the Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone, we employ a Camp Host 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. The Camp Host will be stationed at an out building offering binoculars, walking sticks, park/area information, animal sightings, and yard games. Stop on by and say hello!
Available May 15 - September 15
8 AM - 10 PM
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.
Fires are lit from 5 PM - 11 PM for roasting S'mores.

On-Site LaundryBeing 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.
Pet FriendlyHere 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!

Heated Underground ParkingA 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.
Electric Charging StationsAs part of our commitment to preserving Yellowstone National Park, we offer charging stations for electric vehicles (Tesla, Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf, Toyota Prius, etc) at the Holiday Inn® West Yellowstone and Gray Wolf Inn and Suites! Charging stations at each property are free to use for paid guests.
Local EntertainmentThere 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.
