The Absaroka Lodge is a clean, friendly place, perfect for families or couples. The Manger Shawn treated us like family and was always ready to answer our questions or assist up with our luggage up and down the stairs. We had two rooms as my sisters traveled with us; ours had a small kitchen area, that gave us lots of options for making snacks or breakfast. Both rooms had a balcony right on the Yellowstone River and that added space made our stay just perfect. I would recombed this place to anyone wishing to have a clean, safe convenient room just a short drive to the Park, You can count on Shawn to make sure everything is comfortable and enjoyable. We would love to return someday, it was great!

While we normally stay in the park, we opted for Gardiner as my daughter needed to check in for her summer job at the park in town. The hotel is wonderful. Loved the deck right on the river and watching the elk across the river...and in the parking lot! The room was clean, spacious, and updated. We could walk to basically everything in town. Gas station across the street is open early to pick up coffee and snacks (or there is coffee in the room). 2 minute drive into the park. And while we're ok with not having tv and wifi while we're at Yellowstone it sure was nice to actually have it! Staff was super friendly. If you don't want to do stairs see if you can request a ground level floor which is technically the 2nd floor.

Don’t delay, book this property as soon as possible. The property is extremely well maintained. The beds were very comfortable and the views incredible. Wildlife wanders through the property from time to time. All the normal amenities are included, Microwave, Coffee maker, Refrigerator etc. Parking can be a little bit tough at night as the property is usually full. We went off season and this property had “NO VACANCY” each night. Walking distance to several restaurants for breakfast and dinner. A supermarket is also within walking distance. Entrance to Yellowstone National Park is just around the corner. I would not hesitate to book again or suggest this property to my friends or family.

We come to Yellowstone every year, so have stayed at many different places over the years. This time I snagged one of the kitchen units at the Absaroka Lodge for 5 nights. We liked it so much I will book it again for next year. We really liked our accommodations. It was clean and comfortable and the deck over Yellowstone River has beautiful views. The bed was super comfortable and the shower was great. Plenty of room to stretch out. Loved having the kitchen with cooktop (could have used some measuring cups and spoons though) lots of pans, cooking utensils etc. Just a couple little problems (but not bad enough to not book again). The light on the deck is on automatically every night so it’s a bit bright since the blinds aren’t room darkening. Also the room runs warm. It was only in the 30’s-40’s while we were there but I had to turn on the A/C to cool it off. That can be a bit loud, but again, not bad enough to not book this room again.

Though It is a long drive from Florida, Yellowstone is one of the most magical places on earth, calling us back time and time again . The Absaroka Lodge is --the-- place to stay. The Old Faithful Inn is a must stay once, but the Absaroka Lodge is our go to place. All rooms are right on the river, all have balconies with plenty of chairs to enjoy the sunset, look at the mountains and of course the river. Elk often in residence. Rooms are immaculate. It is wonderful after a day of hiking and exploring to come back to awesome beds, great heat or air dependent on time of year, fast wifi, TV and cable (yes, it is good to check the weather and plan the next day, if nothing else,) and a bathtub /shower; not to mention fridge. Kitchen suites are great if available. Perhaps the best part of the experience is the owner-- Richard. A true gentleman, always helpful, gracious and genuinely interested in each guest. I traveled here for years with a very elderly relative who was finally in a wheelchair -- Richard always found us a room that 'worked. ' My ancient truck broke down one trip, Richard recommended a great mechanic and moved heaven and earth so I had a room -- a true class act. Apparently so many agree, I have made friends staying here from China, Japan, Germany, Denmark and France. Can't wait to come back October this year. Elk in rut, Bison everywhere and Grizzly Bears fattening up for winter hibernation. When you pull under the arch at the Asaroka Lodge, it feels like visiting family at a beloved second home.
