Over the years Ive stayed at the Absaroka so many times that Ive lost count. Its kind of my home away from home! The Absaroka is a great choice of lodging for those who visit Yellowstone. The rooms are clean and comfortable and have had several upgraded features added since my last review. The beds now sleep heavenly, which is... More

We decided to get away for Thanksgiving and decided that our favorite spot near Yellowstone was the place to go. We ignored the doomsayer's weather forecast and drove up on Wednesday afternoon. The kitchenette we booked was everything we expected and more. It was a little cool in the room when we got there, apparently a power outage had turned... More

We made a reservation at the lodge and cancelled the reservation two weeks before the date we planned to stay. Since they forgot to cancel our reservation they charged our credit and now three months later they still won't credit us back. Don't make a reservation at this lodge if you want good customer service

Stayed here 9/20-9/25/15 as part of a photography workshop group. My room had two double beds and was of a good size. I had a balcony with a view of the Yellowstone River. The bed was comfortable, and the room (including bathroom) was clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. Any requests/problems were handled promptly.

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night over the Labor Day weekend. Finding lodging last minute was not easy, so we were happy to get the 1 night. The location is excellent. Every room has a balcony and view. You can hear the river throughout the night if you leave your window/door open - which is what we... More

Only stayed here as my mother had stayed previously back in the early 90's. Property is very old and not updated. I would only stay here again if the other places in town were full. The internet service was so slow that I couldn't even access Trip Advisor! Very over priced at $195/night for a very small room. On the... More

So some of these reviews truly baffle me. Yes our building was actually built in 1991 but in my opinion from the outside it looks brand new and is very well maintained. Two years ago we overhauled the entire hotel and pretty much everything in the rooms is brand new. Aside from knocking down the building:) which we're not going... More

I think people like to stay here because all rooms overlook the river and elk come up right to the porch. The view and elk are worthwhile. The rooms are very clean and have a microwave and mini-fridge. However, the beds are lumpy and the decor is very YMCA-ish. I really don't understand why they don't update the decor; I... More

I stayed here recently for one night. The room was clean and the staff friendly, but it offers little outside of close proximity to the north entrance to Yellowstone Park. If you don't need to get a super early start, I would advise staying in Livingston or Bozeman. Bozeman is only a little over an hour away, and offers so... More

As you can see from the majority of other posts I think we offer a pretty great value. We're priced lower than most of the other hotels in Gardiner and our river balconies and park view are amazing. More
