Close to the park entrance, older and new rooms. Price is for sure good. The older rooms are ok. We had an older room with luckely two beds. The beds are too small for 2 persons, so we loved to have our own bed.you can take coffee, tea and fresh water within reception openings hours. Gardiner is a small place... More

Room 109 is right on the Yellowstone River. We were able to sit out behind our room on the beautiful viewing garden and enjoy the sound of the river rushing down below. In the morning we watched the herd of 8 elk graze on the other side of the river. On top of that the rooms are clean and the... More

A local expert recommended this motel as a convenient entry to Yellowstone. The motel also has a back terrace with a striking view of the Yellowstone River. We stayed in the newer section which was comfortable and clean. I appreciated the courtesy of the front desk and we had delicious breakfasts at nearby Rosie's. I consider the cost of the... More

Gardiner, MT is at the North Entrance to Yellowstone Park. This motel seems to be one of the original businesses. It's not fancy, but it's clean and quiet. The office is friendly and helpful and it's just a short walk to local restaurants and stores. We spent a week there as part of a tour group and we don't have... More

When we first arrived we were a little skeptical of the location. The staff and owners made up for that! They were very nice and offered to make coffee for us at 6 am! The motel is within walking distance of shopping and food. The rooms were very clean.

Very nice and super clean hotel. Perfect walking distance for food. Short drive to north entrance of Yellowstone NP. WiFi was better than large chains. Again very clean not afraid to walk barefooted in room. 100% fresh sheets on our arrival.

We enjoyed the patio area where we grilled and could overlook the river. The motel is within walking distance of the many fun shops in town. However, the beds had certainly seen their better day. My rollaway was bare springs. I did find a human hair in the bed when I pulled back the sheets, but couldn't really determine if... More

Fabulous place and very reasonably priced. The owners were absolutely wonderful to my family! They gladly accommodated my son's service dog and introduced me to their own sweet dog. Our room was fantastic and clean. The owners even suggested great places to eat in the area. I can't wait to visit their motel again!! Thank you all so much!

I picked this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews and budget. Initially we booked 4 nights because we were going to head to Glacier National Park for 3 nights. However, a stomach bug hit me the first morning on our arrival. I sent my son out to see the sights with the rental car. Things got worse and I had to... More
