We stayed in this motel with just one night to spare in Gardiner, and it's a great choice on the less-expensive end of lodging in town. Couldn't quite see $170 for a Choice hotel. (We stay at that chain fairly regularly with some success and some disappointment. I just don't think of Choice as a $170 room, if you know... More

We stayed in the old section of this motel. The room was small, yet clean, queen bed was comfortable. The bathroom was the size of a travel trailer bathroom....never saw a triangular sink before. They did have a refrig and microwave but no hair dyer, coffee was in the front lobby along with the ice machine. If you are just... More

They offer a AAA discount, on top of being the cheapest accommodation in the area (and closest to) just outside the park. With AAA, $100 for the night for a room with two double (queen?) beds. They've got an adorable patio out back that overlooks the Yellowstone river, and that alone is worth it. Fridge, microwave, and tv. I'd recommend.

Our daughter had booked us a room at the Yellowstone River Motel when we were on a trip celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary. I am always been hesitant to pick hotels that I know nothing about, however, this one was a truely marvelous exception to the rule. The staff was great, Bill and Norma, the rooms were very modern, comfortable,... More

We had a great stay at the River Motel. We only stayed one night, but we wished it had been a few more. The location is fantastic. The views out our window were beautiful. The views from the backyard garden were stupendous. The service was friendly and accommodating, the room was clean and comfortable. We could walk everywhere in town.... More

Very clean nice quiet motel. The rooms are quite fresh. The services are basic (no breakfast but good Wi-Fi), but within what one could expect from good motel. The receptionist was very helpful in directing to a good restaurant. The linens are exceptionally clean, on par with good hotels. Some equipment might be outdated (tube TV, room AC), but well...

The staff were friendly and the room was comfortable, clean and the right price for our stay as we were traveling through Yellowstone. The back patio overlooks the Yellowstone River and is the perfect place to unwind after a day of touring Yellowstone Park. HiGHLY recommend this little hidden jewel!

We stayed for one night after taking the east loop though Yellowstone. We stayed in the two bedroom "house" and it was very comfortable. We liked being able to walk down the street for restaurants and shops. We were very happy with this choice.

We spent one night here after a day in Yellowstone. This is an older motel that takes me back to my childhood. We had an individual cabin to ourselves. We had 2 bedrooms, each with a vanity and mirror with nearby plug for hair appliances. Unlike other "2 bedroom" units we've had on this trip, we did not have to... More

We called and made a same-day booking of one of their units which turned out to be a two-bedroom re-modeled house. Each room has a sink, and there is a bathroom in between the rooms. The AC works really well, and one of the rooms has a flat-screen TV. It has new carpet and is very clean. There is a... More
