The room, and indeed the property, had seen better days. The mattress was definitely old and a bit lumpy. The wifi was either great, non-existent, or in between. Sometimes I had a signal, sometimes I had to sit outside my room door to get one (while swatting the bugs the congregated there), sometimes nothing was available to connect to. Next... More

We did a complete renovation in the last 2 years and every room has new beds (not old), chairs, toilets, deck chairs, flat screen tv's, coffee makers, hair dryers, Unfortunately the Wifi options in our very small mountain town are not good. We have the best one available. More

We stayed 2 nights at this motel. Rooms were average. Balcony overlooks the stream below. So get a top floor.. Really the only thing I can complain about was that the wifi internet needs to be improved. To get it we had to sit by the entrance to our room and it was still weak.There is no breakfast options but... More

Rooms are clean, beds were comfortable. All the patios have a great view of the river below. Close enough that with the window open at night, the rapids provide excellent white noise to sleep to. Rooms are somewhat small. I couldn't figure out how to get just the fan on, and the wall thermostat was in an odd place (wall... More

The location was amazing and the views awesome. Almost every room overlooked the Yellowstone river, with a balcony. We slept each night with the window open to sleep to the sound of the rushing river... The room was dated, but clean and well maintained. The mini kitchen was adequate for simple meals/breakfast. Coffee and toaster working and coffee provided. The... More

Very reasonable suites with kitchens, 2 beds and a view of the river. The elk is more than tame when they show up at your motel. Staff is very helpful. This is the place you can really spend some time. More than just an overnighter.

The view from our balcony was gorgeous! The mountains in the distance, the river below, and the elk feeding on the across the river made our day complete! The room was average size, and somewhat dated, although the bathroom looked as if it had just been updated, which was nice. The room was very clean, and Terri was nice &... More

We started out at the not worthy Yellowstone Hotel, but after one awful day and night we found Absaroka on this site. We made the trek and based the rest of our trip from here. Wish we had been smart enough to have done that from the beginning. Gardiner is a perfect little town and Absaroka Lodge is the best... More

The mountains were snowcapped when we visited Absaroka Lodge. The owners are Veterans and had the pleasure of talking to them and sharing stories with their son whom was in Afghanistan. The rooms were clean, TV had channels I like (fox news), balcony overlooked Yellowstone river, the Elks and Mule deer forging nearby. Wow! Complete therapeutics .. ..

Great location right on the river. Wonderful mountain views. Nice deck to enjoy the river and view. Very clean room, comfortable bed and pillows. Good selection of t.v. channels. Reasonable room rate. Directly outside Yellowstone north entrance. Would definitely stay there again.

The Absaroka Lodge is located only a minute away from the Northwest entrance of Yellowstone NP. It is a very convenient place to stay if visiting the Mammoth, Tower/Roosevelt, and/or Lamar Valley sections of the park. The rooms are clean and spacious, and the heat worked well when we visited in March. The Lodge sits along the Yellowstone River, and... More
