We had a booking somewherelse, but we had a problem to reach it as some road were closed because of the fire, so we decide to exit the park from the north side of yellowstone looking for a place to stay and we saw vacancy at the River motel, which looked really welcoming. The lady that welcomed us was just... More

We stayed here for 5 days while attending a Road Scholar program on Yellowstone Park. The room was very clean and had all we needed. Microwave and small refrigerator in the room. The free Wi-Fi was good. There's a common area behind the motel with picnic tables and chairs where you can relax while overlooking the Yellowstone River. Saw some... More

We stopped in because it was one of the few places with vacancy in mid-August. We weren't sure what to expect but the office staff was friendly and helpful and the lobby had a nice set up of complimentary water/coffee/tea. There is a beautiful backyard open to guests that overlooks the Yellowstone river. Great place to eat lunch or sip... More

Two years ago we spent a week in Yellowstone staying within the National Park. If I'd of realised how easy it was to get to get in and out the park from Gardiner I'd of stayed here instead of Mammoth Hot Springs and saved some money. The motel room was spotless and the microwave, fridge and TV looked brand new.... More

This is an older motel with a certain kind of charm. However, the room was clean and smelled fresh. There was a mini-fridge and a microwave. There is a lovely grassed patio where you can sit and watch the wildlife while listening to the river. Nice little spot on the northern edge of Yellowstone.

We were just looking at a one night stay before heading into Yellowstone. This was a great place to stay for that. Nice folks. Room was as expected. Nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. It was a great place to land before entering Yellowstone Park. Motel staff was very nice and helpful at booking time. And after we checked out,... More

Stayed here in late June. Can't remember the room number. It's important because of the type of room it is. It's at the end around the corner from the motel in the older section. It is two rooms in one. There is an entrance that brings you to two doors. You get both rooms basically for the price of one.... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. Our trip was to see Yellowstone Park. Very clean. Great location. Right at the north entrance to the park. Price was good compared to the prices for lodging inside the park. Free wifi.

Easy to get to, right out side of Mammoth Hot Springs entrance to Yellowstone, good place to spend the night before heading into Yellowstone Park, no frills, but the patio overlooks Yellowstone River, so great view! Would stay again if back in the area.
