Good location to access Yellowstones North East entrance. Everything you need here but restaurants not great in Cooke City. Room was clean, cosy and comfortable but quite noisy although ok after 10pm. Hosts helpful.

Strange things happened and the hotel we though we had booked for Cooke City fell through. Happened across the Elk Horn in the AAA guide and a cabin was open so I jumped at it. Great room, the kids love it. Was great talking to Jeff, they have a fine business here.

Thanks for giving us a review. We are glad you found us too! We have often wondered if being the only AAA approved motel in Cooke City was panning out for us so thanks for mentioning it! Glad you and the kids enjoyed your stay! There is no greater seal of approval then being recognized by one's customers! Thanks, Lisa... More

After 3 days in West Yellowstone, we wanted to visit Bear Tooth and Lamar Valley. Did not have reservations, and was playing by ear. Stopped here and very glad we did. This place is a hidden gem.

Jeff was very welcoming. The room was clean and spacious for our needs. Beds were very comfortable. Nice to have a little fridge and a microwave as well. Cooke City is a great little town and people were SO friendly.

We stayed at this hotel because it got such great reviews! It was nice and very clean! The managers or owners were really friendly and nice! The rooms are better than anything I have stayed at in Cooke city! They are basic average rooms but there is a little kitchenette included in the separate cabins!

After a reservation snafu we ended up here thinking we had reserved a room. However, there was no vacancy. The woman at the front desk was very helpful and took the time to call all the hotels in Cooke City and Silver Gate until we found a place with vacancy. Although we didn't spend the night here I have to... More
