My husband and I stayed here to be close to the northern entrance of Yellowstone National Park. The room came with a mini refrigerator, stove, microwave and some dishes and silverware. Our only complaint was the mattress was too soft.

Thank you for the kind review and we appreciate your business. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. We purchased new beds for the entire hotel 2 years ago and as you know it's hard to accommodate every single persons bed preference. Hope to see you again soon. More

The hotel stands in a perfect location, right at the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park. The rooms are big and have all amenities you may need, such as microwave, fridge, air conditioner, etc. But the best of it all is the outstanding view you have in the balcony. Ideal for having a glass of wine after a full day... More

Yellowstone's Abrasoka Lodge has very basic amenities. However, the rooms are clean, have new mattresses, microwaves, and refrigerators. The view on our second floor balcony was lovely; the river below, the town and in the background mountains. One morning there were deer foraging below on the riverbank. The Lodge is close enough to walk to downtown, numerous restaurants and a... More

If not for the location, I would suggest finding another inn. But the location can not be beat - right at the entrance to Yellowstone, plus the rooms have lovely balconies which overlook the balconies. Our room unfortunately was too hot to sleep because the ice conditioning did nothing but blow hot air and even leaving the window open did... More

Thank you for the review and we will look in to the air conditioning not working in your room. Also we are in the process of upgrading our TV service to Direct TV which will be much better for the guests. Our in room coffee makers are the number one rated in the market so not sure why it took... More

Motel was clean. People were friendly and helpful. Rooms were nicely sized. Price was reasonable. Beds seemed new. Furniture was a bit dated. Had a little more foot-traffic noise from above than I'd normally like.

We stayed only one night but if we come back to Yellowstone this is where we will be. The Lodge site is right on the river with marmots lounging on the rocks and elks roaming the lawns in the evenings. The room was spacious and comfortable with a large balcony (4 seats) looking right on to the river and across... More

Returned here for another stay while visiting Yellowstone NP. The location is perfect-just five minutes to the park entrance and right on the Yellowstone River. The rooms are well equipped-we had a kitchenette suite-and views are great-even had an elk at our patio door in the morning.

Average motel quality room with an above-average view of the river and mountains. The patio is a shared space with your neighbors, in our case, the neighbors had taken over part of our space and were chatting loudly. We retreated indoors and just opened the drapes and enjoyed the view that way. The decor is 70s. The coffee was pretty... More

We stayed at the absaroka lodge at the north end of yellowstone. It is a great location to visit the beautiful yellowstone park. The price is not too expensive. The rooms are quite basic but comfortable. There is no breakfast but there is places nearby. I would stay here again if i am back this way.

Good price. Beautiful view from our own little balcony. Very easy access to Yellowstone. Walking distance to restaurants. Best of all, honest and friendly people who went out of their way to contact me to let me know that I had left an item behind. And then they made a special effort to get it mailed back to my home....
