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

Great location overlooking the Yellowstone River. You can see the group of White water rafters from the room. It's not a fancy hotel. It's more than comfortable, clean and reasonably priced for this area during peak travel season. Would definitely choose this place again when we come back to Yellowstone.

First of all, we reserved the room six months in advance as recommended. We stayed for almost two weeks in June. We got a bottom corner room facing the river and national park. Since it was June, the rates were about that of a Comfort Suites room. The staff cleaned the room everyday and did the dishes, too. We took... More

I guess one should not complain, all lodgings around Yellowstone are obscenely expensive, this is no exception. Nice large rooms though, and very close to the north entrance. We had a room with kitchenette, which was a godsend after a long day in the park, as none of us wanted to go eat out. Reception closes at seven, so make... More

Thanks for staying with us and we appreciate the positive review. Your right in the summer which is our high season rates are high all around the park but we're cheaper than most of the other hotels. More

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...
