The room was nothing fancy, but it was exceptionally clean and well cared for. We were touring Yellowstone Park so all we really needed was a place to sleep. It has a great central location and is within walking distance of most things in Gardiner. The balcony off of our room was a great bonus. This is a nice family... More

Clean, well-appointed room, with a balcony overlooking the Yellowstone River. We would definitely come back on a return trip to the National Park. .The town also has a variety of small interesting shops.

Older motel with a premium location right on the bank of the Yellowstone river. Our room on the lower floor required a flight of stairs down to it, but then had a walkout door onto a deck and lawn overlooking the river below. Wish we could have stayed longer than one quick night. Room was a bit tight on space,... More

The hotel is located a walk from everything and the rooms are pretty new and clean. The front desk person, Clay, gave us great local info and knew how to make our visit enjoyabe. The view from the rooms overlook a roaring river and the hotel is located a walk to restaurants and shopping malls in town all in all... More

Stayed in a double room with my parents recently while on a road trip. Comfortable room, nice beds and bathroom at a reasonably cheap price. Nice view of the river. Beautiful little town despite roadworks at the time. Wifi was really slow and struggled to hold connection. The man at reception spoke to us with a bad attitude as soon... More

Gardiner is amazing and this hotel is the perfect spot in Gardiner, right on the river. The rooms have a common deck on the back overlooking the river and the mountains. Very peaceful. The rooms are roomy. Nice owners. Would stay here again! Best priced hotel in Gardiner that I found.

Balcony of our room was right on top of the river, excellent views. The receptionists were polite and courteous both when checking in and checking out. Town of Gardiner is small, charming, still maintains the look and feel of old west:-)

This place is aging now, I remember when it was very first built 1986 ish? It is getting a little rundown, but who cares. I say this because the setting of this hotel is perfection. It leans right out over the Yellowstone River. It's situated right on the cool high bridge, a convenience store right across the street. Get loaded... More

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
