Roadway Inn aka Skyline Motor Inn, Cody, WY

Cody, WY, West Yellowstone, MT' and within Yellowstone National Park itself, are the three major locations of lodging for visitors to Yellowstone. Of the three, we prefer Cody, even though it is the farthest from the park. We like Cody because there is an option of two scenic drives into Yellowstone, and our favorite place to stay on our 10-12 trips to visit Yellowstone is the Skyline Motor Inn on US Rt 14 on the south side of town because it is very comfortable, with very large rooms, and its cheap. Also, Cody has more going for it than another place to stay in or near Yellowstone. Eventually, I will do a post on Cody.

The Ski line Inn is old, so it lacks a lot of the amenities provided by more modern establishments, but then, they cost a lot more and don't deliver any better night's sleep. Its been awhile now since me have been there (4-5 times), but my recollection is that our rooms had two queen beds, decent pillows, good curtains, a couch, TV, mini bar, a table and two chairs. Maybe even a microwave. What more do you want?

The parking lot is behind the office/manager residence building with two rows of rooms along each side of the parking lot. The two story building on the right is where we always stay because the rooms are much larger than those on the other side of the parking lot (and more expensive, but at these prices, live it up). A small outdoor pool is at the end of the parking lot.
