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

Clean, comfortable rooms. Friendly staff. The Yellowstone River runs below their little river patio. I love this place. I meant to stay only 1 night, but ended up staying 3. AND they take pets!!!! I don't have a pet, but I love places that do. Also, they don't have coffee in the rooms, but they have great coffee for you... More

Stayed here for 5 nights with one of the Road Scholar groups. Nothing fancy and the rooms are basic, but clean. The beds are comfortable. The rooms have a microwave and refrigerator. Small TV; good free wifi. If you're journeying into the Park, you'll probably be out and about most of the day and this place is just fine to... More

We stayed two nights. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Location is perfect. The back patio area is a nice feature. The two dogs in the office are a plus. We needed a place to shower and sleep and this place was clean and comfortable. I would stay again.

We stayed here 2 nights and were very pleased with the room, beds, location and the friendly courteous staff. Clean and comfortable, great value and located very conveniently to all Gardiner has to offer. Just a heads up to those on motorcycles in that the parking area is gravel. It would not deter me from staying again though as the... More

This motel has great friendly service and clean rooms right on the Yellowstone river. Had a family suite with two bedrooms which was affordable and comfortable. If staying in Gardiner this is a great choice.

Quaint little place... clean, comfy, located with the River out back... great value and loved the front desk staff who were extremely friendly and outgoing. Things were basic but about what one would expect. Very pleased considering the value. It is within a few hundred meters of the entrance to Yellowstone NP.

This is a plain, basic mom-and-pop motel; quite comfortable, with pleasant, friendly front-desk staff. If you just want a clean, quiet place to spend the night, you'll be pleased. We slept well and had no complaints.

Wonderful time! Magnificent area great to see the elks by the hotel. The back patio is a must see to enjoy the Yellowstone River. And the best of all you are just steps away from the Yellowstone National Park entrance.

This place was just awful.....the room was so small it was claustrophobic, overpriced, and the bed was EASILY the WORST I have ever slept in.....not worth it by far....The view was OK, but I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone, ever.
