When we planned for Yellowstone trip, It was starting of May, 2015. We were planning for May 20th. All park hotels were already booked by that time. So we started looking hotels outside of park. But it should be very near to entrance of the park. We tried for West Yellowstone, MT. But most of the hotels were already But... More

An older room but was very clean and comfortable. The shower head was low for me (and I'm 5'5") but that was the only issue with the room. No breakfast included but there's a gas station next door if you want to grab something cheap.

Great location in spite of the road construction going on at the North Entrance of Yellowstone! The room was very clean and well-maintained even though this is an older property. There is a nice little patio overlooking the Yellowstone River and yes, if you get up early enough you might catch the nursery herd of elk nibbling on the hanging... More

Only stayed one night while visiting YNP but would stay again. A little concerned when I called to book the room and they said that I would be in the older section but it was fine. Clean room with a comfortable queen bed. Bathroom was small but adequate. Small sink. Overlooked the Yellowstone River so the view was lovely. The... More

This is a nice place to spend a few nights because it right in town and you can walk everywhere. They were great when we checked in, even giving us a board to put under our motorcycle side stand. The room was really clean and nice but a little on the small side but still a nice place to stay.

Rooms are clean. View is incredible. Rates are reasonable. Gateway to Yosemite National Park. The patio overlooks the Yosemite River. I would come back in a second. Pets are welcome for a small fee. Rooms are non smoking which is a big plus.

While on a cross country move from Western Washington to Georgia, my and I wanted to spend a day or two visiting Yellowstone National Park but we did not want to pay the big price of a resort, so after reading reviews on several motel in Gardiner, we decided to take a chance on Yellowstone River Motel. It was a... More

This motel is located really close to the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park. In a few minutes you can enter the park. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable, however the floor feels cold. Free-Wifi is available. Staff was quite friendly. We would highly recommend this place!

Every person I met there was friendly and cheerful. I don't think I left my room once without someone fro the staff stopping to chat. Even my dog met some other sociable pooches. I was in the older wing, but the room appeared to have some recent updates--new bedspreads, new carpet, spotless bath, large flat-screen tv. The bathroom was kind... More

I have spent several trips here over the years and have always been well cared for. They have wonderful accommodations, great staff that go out of their way to help how ever they can, and reasonable rates. Check out their river view patio for down time and make new friends while comparing notes over animal siteings. Well worth the stay!
