Stayed here one night during Yellowstone trip. We were going to Lamar Valley early the next morning, so this hotel was convenient. It's in a nice location overlooking the river. Our room had a small porch overlooking the river where we could sit and have a glass of wine. It was nothing special, but was roomy enough and comfortable. Affordable... More

A good price and comfortable. Very good heating with 1 deg F outside. No problems at all over our two night stay. The Cowboy Saloon and Grille over the bridge is a decent place to eat. We visited in November at a quiet season. Very cold, but quiet in the park.

Stayed here in September and maybe we are too picky but we were given a room in the lower level - basically a basement with a walk-out door on the back. The hallway is very dark, dungeon-like and the carpets are horrendous. This includes inside the room. The bed and bath were clean but the carpet was so nasty we... More

With an overwhelming amout of kind reviews you are going to find it hard to please everyone all the time. We're sorry you felt this way. I have to disagree on the carpets because the hallway carpet is brand new and the room carpeting is only several years old and we walk it every day. It's definitely not as bad... More

The Absaroka Lodge is very conveniently located, close to the North entrance of Yellowstone National park. The motel is nestled on the bank of the Yellowstone River. Check-in was handled by an extremely helpful and friendly young man who went out of his way to provide information on Gardiner, including best places to eat. The ground floor room, although not...

Nice motel on banks of river. Ground floor room has a balcony to it on overlooking river. Beds comfortable and clean. Coffee in reception in morning - we were not told about this but found out when checking out. No breakfast

It was clean. It was convenient. It was spacious. So, yeah: not bad. But... the decor was a bit sparse; it reminded me of certain state park cabins in which I have stayed, where someone was given the responsibility of decorating but not the funds to do so. It isn't that the place is ugly, no...just...sterile. Antiseptic. Blah. And the... More

First off thanks for staying with we appreciate it. We're definitely working on a few of the things you addressed in this review.

We wanted to upgrade the necesities first and... More

After we learned (thanks to Karyn from Buffalo Roam Tours) that we would no way see all of Yellowstone from Jackson Hole, .... and we soooo wanted to see the boiling river and the North entrance we changed some plans to stay in Gardiner.

We stayed at Absaroka as a means of visiting Yellowstone as it was a lot cheaper than staying within the national park itself. It is perfectly situated for doing this as it is very close to the North entrance. The town of Gardiner has numerous restaurants and they offer a wide range of dining options. The hotel room was spacious... More
