Stayed one night, two rooms in the first week of June 2015. Made reservations by phone (no internet reservations available, at least at the time I booked back in March). Thought we were going to arrive extra late at night and the management (which is a family) were glad to work with us (although it turned out we were able... More

We stayed in room number 12 and it was nice and clean. The bathroom was nice and the sink was nice. The beds were a little lumpy but other than that I would say I would recommend it to a friend. Within walking distance of several good restaurants.

The High Country Motel and Cabins gets my highest recommendation! I had made a reservation in March for a visit in mid-June 2015 -- a reservation you have to make by calling, in person. No web reservations, nothing like that. That's already several points in the "charm" column. And I made the reservation, got a confirmation number, and had a... More

Our room had a wonderful view. Everything was clean. The beds were comfortable. Service was friendly. The mini-store at the motel office carried a thoughtful selection of items to make sure any stay is the best it could be. Cafe Cooke just steps away from the motel is a fun take-out or open air dining place with good home cooking.... More

This is a wonderful motel in a wonderful place! In my opinion its the best motel in Cooke! The rooms are clean, super comfy bed for a great night of sleep, and a cute little store to buy coffee for in the morning. The Owners ( Paige and Brandon) are always working hard to make this place feel more like... More

We enjoyed our stay. The town is the quite side of Yellowstone, nice to come back to after a full day in the park. Kids loved the tepee and playing in creek. Loved the mountain/national forest surroundings. The owners are super nice and helpful. Liked having free phone calls to anywhere provided as an amenity since no cell service in... More

Moose M, Owner at Cooke City High Country Motel, responded to this review

Hi, I am sorry that you were disappointed in the room. Room 5 is our most modest room as it was the first unit brought down from Beartooth Lake. It was a forest service cabin and was the very first unit at the High Country Motel, then the Mus Rest motel, owned by Vince Mus. We do try to tell... More

Owner Brandon helped us with some route planning since we were travelling by motorcycle. We were able to maximize our riding experience while dodging some of the bustle of Yellowstone. The room was clean and spacious with parking at our door. The bonus was the ability to open windows at both ends of the room allowing that mountain breeze coupled... More

This is a very basic place to stay, but serves the purpose for what you need. The couple that runs the place are absolutely delightful and helpful. The room is plain but very clean. We stayed in the duplex because we had are lab which was more than welcome. Had the windows open because it was warm when we were... More

I was recommended by a friend in Kalispell to stay in Cooke City after riding my Motorcycle over the beartooth pass. I made a reservation with Brandon the owner and requested a ground floor room as we wanted our bikes outside our room. When we arrived Brandin checked us in and gave us heaps of great information about Cooke City... More
