We were on a fishing trip and needed a place to stay on short notice. We were provided a fair room for a fair rate. I drive an electric car and the Yellowstone River Motel found a place for me to plug in (110V / 20A) overnight for no additional charge.

Our room was clean with comfortable beds, fridge, microwave, and the best patio view of the Yellowstone River you could ask for. We we there in late September so we got to see elk that wander through the motel grounds as well as a great bull across the river bugling to his harem. The motel is in walking distance of... More

Definitely needs new beds, the room is small but has the basic necessities, but the bed. The room was clean, old motel, parking is tight for the back rooms, view from patio area is relaxing. Would have enjoyed being able to see a view from the room other than a fence and bushes.

Nice large, clean room with a small (cable)TV, mini-fridge, microwave,dresser, desk and 2 chairs. The very large vanity is separate from the tub/shower, toilet room. We enjoyed the comfy beds and pleasant room that looks out at the park entrance. There was reliable 3G internet service.

The location of this hotel is great. It's just outside of Yellowstone Park. We stayed here for 1 night coming out of the park and to go back the next day. Gardiner is just a little town with lots of hotels and restaurants.

We stayed here last week while visiting north yellowstone. Gardiner has a lot of construction going on now and was surprisingly crowded. YRM is a clean place to stay, super convenient to the area. We were upgraded to the family unit which had a kitchen and lots of beds. Overall, YRM was a very affordable, clean motel for our visit.

The Yellowstone River Motel offers a fabulous location, right outside Yellowstone National Park, and immediately adjacent to the Yellowstone River. The motel has many folksy qualities, old-fashioned motel style, a patio in the back from which you can watch the river, and lots of restaurants and activities just steps away in Gardiner Montana. Rooms are scrupulously clean, and the free... More

The Yellowstone River Motel is very reasonably priced for Gardiner and had everything we needed for a short stay. We had a room in the original wing and it was clean and comfortable. I appreciated that they allow pets.

It is a small, quiet hotel, very close to the restaurants in Gardiner. The lady at the desk was extra friendly, my room on the second floor, was very clean and very quiet. I only saw, but did not hear my neighbors, so the walls must have been good and the price was right.
