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 didn't have any expectations regarding the lodging, but we were VERY pleasantly surprised by the... More

Motel is situated just across the bridge on 89 North in Gardiner. Rooms have balconies overlooking the bridge and the Yellowstone River with views if the park beyond. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Hotel has free WiFi. Our room had a minifridge and microwave. Staff was friendly.

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

Left Yellowstone via the North entrance and drive right into Gardiner, MT. The Absaroka Lodge is right on the Yellowstone River, and all rooms have either a balcony or a small patio overlooking the River. The room was well appointed and comfortable, and offered free WIFI. It was in walking distance of restaurants and shopping and the staff was friendly... More

This place was clean and tidy. Great view of the river on our back porch of our room. Easy walk to many attractions on the main drag. I would stay here again! This is nothing fancy but it is kept up well. I would return here again.

The Absaroka Lodge is nothing fancy, but it meets my requirements of being clean, comfortable, and has an excellent location. The view of the river is great; it's walking distance to restaurants, shops, etc. and is just a short distance away from the entrance to Yellowstone. This was our second stay here and both visits were very satisfying. You can't... More

My family stayed at the Absaroka Lodge 7/24/14 - 7/27/2014. It is located on the Yellowstone River in Gardiner in a central location with a number of restaurants within walking distance. We stayed in a room with a kitchenette. The price was very reasonable. The room was clean. The beds were fair - not plush by any means. We had... More

Extremely dated and old motel, but has adequate parking and is very close to the Yellowstone entrance. Bathtub did not drain properly, so water was up to mid- calf during shower. Called management to clear the drain but it was at night at 11:00pm and no one answered at the front desk. Had to wait extremely long between showers for... More

Our hotel is only a little over 20 years old and is still in excellent condition. Also within the last year we've spent a lot... More

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
