We stayed here 2 nights. Our room was located on the Yellowstone River and it had a nice porch overlooking the river. The room was very plain, small but adequate and clean. The location is very convenient to yellowstone Parks entrance. There was a gas station/food mart/Subway across the street where you could purchase supplies. Next door was the Yellowstone... More

Thanks for staying with us. We've recently been updating the entire property. As of the past few days pretty much every item in the room is new and we've added many wonderful amenities. More

Great place to stay for those who don't want to pay someone's mortgage just to see Yellowstone. It's cozy, comfortable, clean, and perfectly priced and that's coming from someone who has a wife and 4 kids.

Staying off season we had fewer options in town. This was a good location, plus I hate paying lots for a simple place to stay, so the rate was good as well. The hotel is right on the Gardiner River and it was great to walk out on the balcony and look at the water rolling past. Since Gardiner is... More

The only plus to this is it is clean and close to Yellowstone. Yes this lodge(if you can call it that) is on the yellowstone river but don't plan on sitting on your somewhat dilapidated balconey to see it. Once you sit down on the old chairs you cannot see the river over the railing. The pots and pans were... More

We’re usually tent campers, but love to come to Yellowstone in the fall when it’s too cold and too dark, too, for tenting. So, we often stay at Absaroka Lodge because of its low price - we paid $50 in this off season - and generally good value. We stayed there last night, and while it still remains a fair... More

Great location to walking into town. Room was very nice though a little dated. Nice balcony overlooking the river. There are steps involved getting to the rooms, not many but still can be a chore with luggage. Staff were very nice and helpful.

We had plans to stay here for 3 nights while visiting Yellowstone but only stayed 1 night. They were overbooked and gladly let us cancel the other two night. It is a long slow drive from many sights in Yellowstone. Gardiner, Mt. is an interesting small town. The view from the lodge is outstanding. We woke up with a large... More
