“Should have camped”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

"Nice guy" at the front room but he was totally clueless as to any service. We rented one of the cute looking stand alone cabins. No ice, poor internet, no air con (87 degrees today), no screen on the front door, no side tables or lamps, no shampoo/conditioner/lotion, old carpet with stains and drapes hanging askew; water on the bathroom floor from some unknown source, all for the price of $110.00. Very nice town with plenty of other good options.

Stayed August 2012, traveled as a couple

While a bit on the pricy side for what you get, this is a comfortable, clean, somewhat rustic motel right in the center of Cooke City. I've stayed here a number of times over the last few years, and will do so again.

Make sure to eat at the Beartooth Cafe, and have breakfast at the little coffee shop a couple of doors up the street from the High Country. The General Store is also well worth a look.

Room Tip: Cabin 1 is small - with a very squeaky bed. Cabins 2 and 3 are larger and more comfortable. The down...

I stayed 2 nights here in June.

The cabin was lovely and comfortable with TV and the manager and his lovely dog were very friendly.

Cooke City is a great little place, quiet and very friendly and the High Country Motel is now my absolute choice to stay in when I return to Montana and Yellowstone. I will be chosing here over staying in the park in future.

Room Tip: I was in cabin 1 which is on the road side and it was lovely - no noise at all!!

We had a nice cabin, but it really needs more to offer. There was plenty of room to put in a nice table and a coffee pot. The cabin is kind of bare bones. Very tiny shower.
We were very disappointed in the person that checked us in. We were just told "if you have any problems let us know". Not a very nice personality at all.
If we go back to Cooke City - we will try some where else.

Hey you're in a town with zero cell reception, 80 miles to the next city, it's not the Hilton but the people make the place. Bonner the black lab met me at the door and his owner (sorry can't remember his name) was the most helpful hotel manager guy you could ask for.

Rooms were not amazing but had everything we needed and were quiet and comfortable.

I have been coming to Cooke City for many years now on snowboard trips and have stayed in other hotels and rented other full homes, but after this winter i will only stay at one place. Benji and Clint at the High Country Motel are some of the friendliest people in town and will go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need and then some. The cabins are very cozy and some even have kitchens. Not only that but they are extremely clean. The Hot Tub is one of the nicest i have ever been in, with a cd player and pop up speakers. Thanks High Country for a great place to hang out this winter, I look forward to many more nights!

Great place to stay if your in Cooke. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms have a kitchenette, wifi, tv, awesome clean beds, and a hot tub close by. What more could you need? I plan to come back to the High Country every time I'm back in Cooke.
