Just so you know - dogs are not welcome any longer! They changed the policy when they remodeled some rooms. No shampoo - be sure to pack your own. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Restaurants in lobby is good - again nothing fancy but good. We enjoyed view out back of bar and enjoyed the lobby as well.

We brought our dog based on other reviews indicating the motel being pet friendly, but they have changed their policy within the last year. That being said, the rooms were okay and no real complaints. Staff was friendly and accommodating to our requests.

We were traveling to Sturgis. We decided to take a scenic trip thru Cooke City and stay overnight. First stop was in Gardiner MT. What a great place. Lot of place to eat and shop. We went to the Blue Goose for a drink. Bartender Mike was awesome and very fun and welcoming. Then on to Cooke City. We arrived... More

Super clean and really comfortable beds. Great atmosphere and loved the decor. This is a nice hotel with a good restaurant and bar. Friendly helpful staff. The only downside is you can hear people wandering outside if you go to bed early and all the showers etc in the morning. We still would stay there again.

We didn't stay here, just had dinner. It was easy to get a table and had great service. Very friendly staff and the food was ok. The garlic parm and burrito were good and filling, but my husband had the sliced beef dinner that was average. It was a little pricey, but the town is small and just a few... More

We booked 2 rooms for 6 people for 2 nights in July. This was the closest place to stay near Yellowstone and even the drive there was impressive through the Bear Tooth mountains. The beds were more than comfortable and the breakfast menu was great. Never seen a pancake that large before. Very helpful in all aspects.

Stayed here for a night on the way to Yellowstone. Enjoyed our stay. Particularly the cost was more reasonable than others. The room was clean and comfortable. If you are passing through the silver gate and Beartooth pass I recommend it for a simple overnight stay.

We were 2 families and booked 2 rooms for a night.. Location is fantastic and we stayed here primarily to go to Lamar Valley to see wildlife early in the morning.. The lodge is only 20 mins from the Northeast entrance and this enabled us to reach Lamar valley at dawn and we managed to see wolves and grizzlies and... More

Did not stay here, but came for breakfast with a group of five. Our order was taken quickly, with many additional requests (dry toast, sugar free syrup, no powdered sugar, etc). Breakfast arrived exactly as everyone ordered, plus it was excellent! Highly recommend it for breakfast.

Spent the night here with a group of motorcyle riding friends. If you're looking for 5 star rooms and service, perhaps you should keep on going to the Roosevelt lodge in Yellowstone. What this place does have is very accomodating staff, nice, low cost clean rooms, a restaurant (I did not eat there though so can't comment) and a lounge... More
