Indian River
Reviewed 2 days ago NEWvia mobile

The room had a lovely balcony over-looking the Yellowstone River; lots of light switches, some that didn't seem to go with anything; no breakfast offerings Room was clean and tidy, although the bathroom did not offer much for flat space to lay out toiletries

We stayed here for one night as part of a Globus tour of Yellowstone. What a neat little place! All rooms have a view of the Yellowstone River. Very clean, comfy beds. Each room is complete with microwave and fridge. Several restaurants within walking distance. Good place to stay if you want to stay outside Yellowstone National Park but still...

Last minute decision had us looking for a place to stay near the park and this was the last place with a bed in our budget. And how lucky we were that it was. Had a room downstairs overlooking the river. Nothing flash but clean and tidy. The view made up for any shortcomings. Even had some of the local...

All rooms are river view. Right off the street leading to Roosevelt gate. Easy access. Walking distance to restaurants and shops. Room was clean and bright. No frills, but well appointed with bath products, coffee, microwave and mini-fridge in two queen room. Bed and pillows very comfortable.

Kathy, running the front desk, is a real asset to the motel and area. She was very friendly and helpful checking in and finding a place to eat mid day. She even said the two maintenance guys would help getting my bags upstairs. I love my room with pretty complete kitchen and great view of the river and park. Not...

We went for a ski vacation. We are very low-maintenance travelers. The first 2 evenings an elephant must have been dancing in the room above. Plumbing was incredibly noisy. Showers started at 5:30 and woke us every morning. Diesel trucks started at 6 a.m. and ran for over 30 mins. Management didn't seem interested. We decided to stay an extra...

We're sorry to hear that you had an unpleasant stay. I talked to our GM and he said he offered to move you guys to the top floor where it would be more quiet but then you never returned to take him up on it. We clean the rooms every single day and as you'll see we get lots of...

It was so nice to be in a non-chain lovely little place in a quaint town bordering Yellowstone. The sheets were good quality, the shower one of the best motel showers I've found and each room has a balcony over the Yellowstone River. Perfect as you go in and come out of Yellowstone!

Actual visits were in Summers of 2012 & 2010. Rooms were fine, service courteous. Short distance from Roosevelt Gate entrance. Nothing fancy, but fine for just a night or two. We have full days & just look for a place to sleep.
