We were so excited to have our very own "cottage"! But truthfully, it's pretty much the same size, layout and looks as a regular motel room. But, it's a tremendously clean place and away from the main road that you won't hear a thing but yourself breathing. Wifi worked well and had a strong signal and there were no signs... More

Spent one night here before entering Yellowstone NP. The rate was very reasonable and we had a good sleep. The cottage's are old but well cared for. The cottages are located right in the middle of town so you have easy access to the restaurants.

We stayed here for 1 night at the end of June on our way to Helena. We arrived early because it had been raining on and off all day (more on than off) Annie offered to cancel our reservation so that we could drive on to Bozeman to get nearer Helena, She tried a Best Western and they wanted $200...

I was eaten alive by bedbugs when staying here for a quick overnighter coming out of Yellowstone, as was my 2 year old son. I wrote an email to the owners letting them know about the problem and they didn't bother to even answer. Three showers and I still didn't feel clean after staying here. Stay away.

Great place, friendly owners, minutes from the Gardiner Gateway YNP entrance. Exactly as advertised and clarified through a pre-visit phone call. We had the large cabin w/ 8 people, incl 4 teens/young adults-- never ran out of hot water, hahaha. Great little kitchen, washer/dryer, complete utensils/dishes, air conditioner. The Hillcrest hearkens back to a simpler time, and we loved it.... More

Stayed at the Hillcrest Cabins last week. Four adults shared a two room cabin. My husband and I slept in the kitchen (the bed was OK). The other room had a double and a single. The pros: it was clean and quiet, there was a kitchen with a full refrigerator and a stove, the people who worked there were very... More

Small cabins with good beds and showers (a bit small). No breakfast but coffee maker in room. Fair price. Nicie location. A bench outside each cabins. Walking distance to "the city". Free wifi. Good beds and pillows.

Stayed at Hillcrest Cottages for three nights starting June 14, 2014. This is the second time we've stayed having stayed here in 2011. Both times we really enjoyed the stay and don't believe you'll find a more reasonable price and nicer property owners. The cottages have all you need for a comfortable stay while visiting YNP. Highly recommended.

This cabin was so comfortable! It was perfect after a two day drive. I was concerned about the bed seeming a bit hard when I first got there, but I slept like a baby so it was fine. The kitchenette really came in handy. The bathroom is rather small but certainly manageable. The place was really clean too! I loved... More

Very reasonably priced, clean rooms, hot showers, fridge and microwave. Parking is a little tight, good thing we were in a small car. Owners were very nice and accommodating. We came in late and they had everything ready for us to check in. Would stay again
