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 stopped in cooke city on a rainy day in yellowstone. It was such a cute town we decided to stay. We approached this lodge at approx 2 pm and after 20 minutes of walking around the building, ringing doorbells and knocking on the door the manager? owner? finally came out. We requested a room for the night and he... More

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

Spent 1 night here after driving Beartooth Highway and before going into Yellowstone National Park at the northeast entrance. Cooke City, ha, ha, is hardly a City, not even a town, about 2 blocks along the highway. Clean comfortable place to stay. Run by owners and it shows. Little signs everywhere in the room telling you everything you need to... 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.

I am a bit amazed that previous reviewers have awarded this inn an "excellent" rating. It may very well be the best in Cooke City, for all I know, but it most certainly is not an excellent hotel. It is a clean but somewhat dowdy and dated property that recalls some of the roadside "motels" of the 50s and the... More
