We stayed in this cottage with two queen beds, a bathroom, and a kitchen on the night of July 15, 2015 while visiting Yellowstone National Park. The cottage was clean and comfortable, with a well-functioning shower and hot water. The kitchen was the type you might find in a small apartment. I hesitate to give this place any more than...

Nice thing about staying at a place where the owners are onsite is they care! Have stayed with Annie since about 1985 or so. This place is not fancy, but for touring the park and having a basecamp for fishing this is one fine place. Walking distance to the bars and restaurants so no need to worry about driving after...

First time to Montana. We stayed 4 days at Hillcrest Cottages. The owners Annie & Art are very sweet. Our little cottage was very clean. We loved it! Would definitely recommend this place. Several places to eat. If you want a "Great Steak" just across the street is Cowboys Grill. The nicest owner, and definitely GOOD food. A must place... More

A perfect ending (lodging-wise) to a wonderful, but a long, day of driving and hiking in the Yellowstone. Great location 5 miles north of Mammoth Hot Springs. Friendly and helpful staff. Refrigerator and microwave and WiFi included. A small but comfortable cottage.

Last September I traveled from Virginia to Washington and stayed in several different hotels/motels. After spending a whole day driving through both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, I was pretty tired. I had thought to make it much further into Montana, but decided to stop in Gardiner. I had not made any reservations and most of the motels and... More

While a simple place to stay over,the price is extremely affordable.The owner is genuinely kind and helpful, as we had late luggage arrive and she kept for us with a smile and even offered to carry a bag over for me.The cottages are small but its all u need if its a quick stopover before hitting yellowstone your looking for.

Had the whole family come in so four generations at the Yellowstone National park. Great people and really clean rooms. Excellent value for north entrance visitor. We have been coming out for almost three decades now. Look forward to three more. This place is motorbike friendly.

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...
