This IS a dated looking hotel but do not be turned away by that. We had a kitchen suite that was huge. The room was very clean and the new mattresses slept great. All of the kitchen units are on the corner. At first I was a little disappointed in this as it was harder to see the river while... More

I was first met by a large elk in the packing lot. The lodge is a 5-10 minute walk from the tourist area, a small convenience store and several restaurants. This lodge is next to the Yellowstone river and most units have patios or decks overlooking the river's rapids. Overall, it was quiet at night. The white noise from the... More

Our family spent one night at YAL last week and we loved it! We had a clean room with a great view of the river. Being able to open the window and hear the water flowing was wonderful. After spending the same amount of money on a hotel in Cooke City the night before which was a dark dungeon, we... More

There were not many choices just outside the north entrance to Yellowstone, so I can understand the $168.00 a night fee. Rooms were outdated but clean. Had a great view of the river from the back deck of the room. Be prepared to hear your neighbors, the floors are thin. At 10:30pm with the owner having closed the office and... More

At first I wasn't sure about staying at a place that is not a well known chain. I read other reviews, some good and some not. However, after my family and I walked into our room I knew it was going to be great for us ! Yes, the bedspreads could be updated, but everything was clean and the staff... More

Thanks for staying with us we're glad you enjoyed your stay. We've updated pretty much everything in each room and I have to agree with you on the bedspreads that's one of our last pieces to update.

This hotel has rooms with a view on the river. It also a reasonably priced hotel. When you arrive the first you see is a rather plain office. The staff is great. The rooms are clean, spacious, have good bed and all the comforts you can expect. The lower rooms have a deck, the others have a balcony. The view... More

Once again the best place to stay in Gardiner MT. We stay at this Inn every time we go into Yellowstone National Park from the north entrance. The staff is great and we are always treated wonderfully. Very quiet with the river right out side our balcony. Just a wonderful stay can't say enough about this place.

We were very impressed with this place. The room was basic but had everything we needed and was clean and comfortable. The deck was outstanding. Nothing could have topped off a day in the parks better than sipping on a glass of wine overlooking the river, town and bridge with Yellowstone as a backdrop. It was a short walk across... More

Plus side: central location in town, but in this small village, everything is outside your door. Nice view of Yellowstone River--in Spring, good rapids action. Regular room with small frig and microwave, $135/nite. Good ice machine just outside. Balcony on second floor overlooking river. Very short drive to Yellowstone Mammoth area. Minus side: rooms are very small and 1950s vintage.... More
