We loved our stay at the Travelodge in Gardiner. We spend just one night here as we where on our way to Bozeman Airport (1 hour 20 minutes away).

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. Wifi and breakfast are complimentary, great value for money. The views from the front facing rooms are gorgeous. The North Yellowstone Entrance is just minutes away.

Room Tip: All rooms are probably great, however, it might be worth asking for a room with a view of the mounta...

Overall, it was a great place to stay in Gardiner. We rented a suite; it was really a one bedroom apartment. PROs: comfortable bed, nice linens, big & fluffy pillows, no need to wear head-to-toe pajamas to bed, spa-like sundries, super friendly & helpful staff (Bonnie rocks!), most of the time, we could not hear our neighbors. Room was very clean. Kitchen was well stocked. GREAT location. Enjoyed the Yellowstone books & magazines in our room. We enjoyed being able to watch the 24/7 Yellowstone Chanel. The furnishings were very nice, much better than I would expect at a Travel Lodge. On site laundry room was convenient and clean. CONS: We could hear the water squealing through the pipes whenever someone took a shower ( not obnoxious, just noticed it). The bathroom could have been a little cleaner / touched up paint near where the floor and wall met. It was unseasonably warm during our stay in mid-May. The AC in the bedroom blew very cold, but the AC in the living room did not work. We had to use the box fan to try and get cool air from the bedroom to blow into the living room. We would've opened the window at night, but the rooms are open to the outside and people smoked on the balcony below our room, and we didn't want to breathe (or smell) the second hand smoke. There was no screen on the window in our bedroom. We mentioned this to Bonnie, but it wasn't fixed during our stay. It would've been nice to sleep with the window open at night rather than the AC running. The breakfast was mediocre at best. There were french toast sticks, but they were cold (refrigerated). We grabbed a bagel and took it up to our room to toast. The breakfast was only available after 7am, which is too late for people who want to see wildlife at dawn in the park. The internet access never worked for us. On the third day, I mentioned this to Bonnie, and she said that the service throughout the hotel was not working because of a storm (there was a nasty storm). However, this did not explain why we couldn't hook up to the internet the first few days. :(

OVERALL, rated this a 4/5 since it was listed as a 2 star hotel. If it was listed as a 3 star hotel, I would've rated it a 3/5. I think that - in the future - I would want to check out the Absaroka motel or even the Hillcrest. We heard very good things about these places. Travelodge is a great place to stay... we're just curious about the other options, especially ones on the beautiful river that runs through town. :)

The suite we had looked as if was recently remodeled. Clean lines and subtle colors. It had a living area with a flat screen TV, a fully-equipped kitchen (full size fridge, stove w/oven, microwave, toaster, dishes, pans, silverware-the only thing missing was the food!), bathroom-the size of my guest bathroom at home, closet space galore, and a master bedroom w/an A/C and a heater. The master was the only room in the suite w/an A/C which was a requirement in booking a hotel in Gardiner. Quite the task. Gardiner is a small town with a very, very limited supply of accommodations that don't require an RV, a tent or a family of 8. Anyway, as soon as we entered the room, we had to make sure the A/C was working properly. It wasn't. We contacted the manager right away and he (Tom, who is also the owner) came to our aid within 10 minutes. After checking the unit, he went to get his maintenance person. He cleaned the filter and said he was going to come back in 1/2 hour to make sure it was working properly. He did but the A/C was still not cooling right. How did the problem get resolved? He installed another A/C! A new one.The whole incident took less than 2 hours. How is that for customer service? Tom and his maintenance person were very polite and courteous. As someone in the hospitaly industry should be, which seems to be a rare quality nowadays.
