Yellowstone National Park is something everyone should see at least once in a lifetime, and our location is the perfect place to stay while discovering the beauty of this region. Let us be your home away from home as you discover the beauty of the Park. Just 15 miles west of Billings, Montana, we are right on I-90, at exit 434 in Laurel.  

Beartooth Pass near Red Lodge is just minutes away, as is the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway. From rodeos to concerts, there’s plenty to do beyond Yellowstone, too. The Locomotive Inn is the perfect tourist location for day trips to the Little Bighorn Battlefield, Yellowstone National Park, the Cody Buffalo Bill Museum, and the Red Lodge Mountain Ski Resort. We are only 10 miles from Zoo Montana; home of grizzly bears Bruno and Ozzy.

History buffs will appreciate the bronze statue of Chief Joseph in Fireman’s Park drawing attention to the Canyon Creek Battlefield where the Nez Perce fought the US Cavalry then escaped up Buffalo Trail.  The patriotic heart of this community is evident in the new Veterans’ Cemetery and the massive American flag that flies over the town and can be seen for miles. 


Laurel is an historic railroad town and the hub of rail commerce in Montana. In addition, Laurel is the home of CHS, one of the oldest refineries in the state.  Turnaround refinery workers and employees of Montana Rail Link will appreciate extended-stay benefits with special rates at the Locomotive Inn.
