Stayed at Elk Horn Lodge on 6/23 after driving the Beartooth Highway from Red Lodge, MT. Booked the Lodge based on prior reviews on trip advisor and did not disappoint. It is a great little property with friendly owners who also make great suggestions for restaurants and things to see and do in the area. A lot of amenities provided... More

Easily the best hotel I stayed at during my time in Yellowstone. That counts the hotels that I stayed at in Jackson, Gardiner, and West Yellowstone during my stay in the park. The hotel is owned by a great married couple who will meet you when you check in and give you the most warm welcome you can think of.... More

Firstly, I try to give a factual non emotional report on all the lodgings I stay in whilst travelling. I am suspicious of reports that are full of angry emotional outbursts. The review that claims that the owner of Elk Horn was rude about not taking pets, and that the owners of another hotel apologised for their behaviour, is hard... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our motel! It's nice when guests that know us sees what really goes on in the motel industry and take the time to let future guests know what actually happens on these sites. Jeff and I really appreciate it!

The rooms at the Elk Horn Lodge are larger than expected and include a good-sized fridge and microwave with a table to cook and eat simple meals in the room before a day of sightseeing in Yellowstone. The real hidden value to this lodge lies in the owners, Jeff and Lisa, who treat their guests like their best friends. As... More

We spent two nights in March. Town was quiet and there was still quite a bit of snow on the ground. The room was perfect in every way! The location, lodge owners, amenities and hot tub made the stay absolutely perfect! Can't wait to stay during another season and experience it again!

We are so glad you were able to find a "Pet Friendly" accommodation in Cooke City! We have a NO PET POLICY as we explained to you. We have this policy because animals (pets and service dogs) have hair and pet dander and customers want a allergy free room! Enough Said! Lisa and Jeff More

My wife and I stayed here near the end of the fall season (they appeared to be rolling up the sidewalks in preparation for the Oct 1, 2013 Govt. shutdown by the Neg-o-publicans). As is my usual rating system, the room, bathroom and linens were clean, the beds were comfortable, the heating/cooling worked fine, the outside noise level was quiet,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a lovely time. It had started to snow as we left Old Faithful for our journey up here and we were quite worried that we wouldn't make it (we're British and don't really do snow!). Thankfully though, we arrived safely. Having made it to Cooke City we were so pleased that we... More

We stayed one night at the Elk Horn Lodge. It was clean, the beds were comfortable, and it had everything you would expect in a small town like Cooke City. The owners were very helpful in telling us about the park and restaurants. If I am ever in Cooke City again, I will definitely stay here.
