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

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.
