“A vacation that started with a disaster, and ended up being more than just a vacation...”
Reviewed May 9, 2011

My family and I have been to Yellowstone Park many times and we always have ended up staying in different Hotels/Motels/Camp Grounds due to the service/rooms/price we have never found a place to keep returning back to... until NOW!

We were set to stay at a different hotel in the park and there was a mix up that ended up leaving us without a room. I called Yellowstone Village Inn and a kind voice answered that was eager to help. When we pulled up there were Buffalo in the front yard. As we walked into the hotel the fire warmed us.

Our condo (#302) was amazing! The bed slept very nicely and the TV’s were a sight to see especially for a hotel. Our room had a 42” flat screen. Over the course of the week while we were there going in and out of the park to see the sites, we always returned to a clean and tidy condo.

Over all though our stay was very nice! By the time our week was done were ready to go home, but we can’t wait to return.

Yellowstone Village Inn by far has won us over!

Has been remodeled but the rooms are still small. Very dark, the rustic lights don't give you enough light to read. Lighting in bathroom shielded by cover which prevents full lighting. Tight space in bathroom. Water system seems to be inter-connected because we heard every shower that morning. But the price was still lower than anything good in West Yellowstone so we took it. Great pizza joint within walking distance

I have just returned from a trip to the USA during which I stayed in 6 different motels and two hotels. This review is based on my comparison of the Yellowstone Village Inn to other motels visited on this trip. It is not a comparison of motels with hotels or B&BS.

The yellowstone Village Inn is located on the outskirst of Gradiner about 2 miles from Yellowstone's North entrance. It is a large motel with numerous rooms in the main hotel and one or two low rise buildings set in it's grounds.

I got the impression that the motel has recently been taken over by new management who have embarked on a refurbishment exercise. Our room was a double with view on the second floor. The room was large and spotless. The bathroom contained the toilet and bath, with the basin and vanity unit located in the main bedroom. The towels and bedlinen were of good quality and again spotless. The window in the room was small but the view was nice. The room was a bit dowdy in terms of paint colour and general decoration but for a little extra we could have stayed in one of the refurbished rooms on the ground floor. We did have a flat screen TV hinged from the wall which we liked a lot.

Continental breakfast was included. The breakfast room was a very small with only three tables. Many people took their cofffee and toast/muffin/bagel back to their room. There was juice and apples also. The selection was small but it did the job - I recomend the muffins which were lovely.

There was a pool and laundry facilities and internet access none of which we used so I cannot comment. The place we in a good state of repair, the grounds were well kept and as well as the room being stotless so too were all the communial areas. We were teated well at reception.

I would have no issue in recommending this motel but would maybe advise paying the extra to get a newly decorated room.

We stayed two nights and dined at Rosie's one night which we enjoyed vey much. Good food good helping and amazing caramel cheesecake- enjoy!

Just returned from a quick trip to Yellowstone. We were going mainly for wildlife viewing, and I decided to try staying in Gardiner this time. We've normally stayed in West Yellowstone, but Gardiner is definitely a better location if you are mainly interested in the upper loop. We were out of the hotel shortly after 6:30 and in the Lamar Valley by 7:00 or so -- just in time to hear two coyotes howling at each other (in plain view of the road) and have a large, black grizzly go right along the side of the road headed out of the Slough Creek campground where everyone was gathered to watch for the wolves that frequent that site.

We stayed two nights at this motel. We were in a room (#304) which had a separate bedroom with a king-size bed, and the main room with a queen bed and sofa sleeper. It was located in a separate building, just a short walk over to the lobby. Since we were traveling with my married daughter and her husband, it worked out very nicely. In the main room there's also a microwave, small fridge and kitchen table -- along with a very nice flat-screen TV.

The bathrooms are set up very nicely for a family. There's one room with just a tub/shower combination, hair-dryer and chair, and a separate room with the toilet and sink area. Great for getting lots of people ready in the morning.

The beds were comfortable, but not as plush as most of the larger hotels have gone to. The linens were also a step down from what we've had a chains like Holiday Inn Express and Hampton Inns lately. When I checked out Sunday morning, the desk clerk mentioned that the room had just been renovated 10 days ago. It's too bad they didn't choose to upgrade the linens while they were doing the renovations.The continental breakfast had a bowl of apples, muffins, bagels, bread, orange & apple juice, coffee, and packets of hot chocolate and teas.

If the bed linens and continental breakfast had been just a touch nicer, I would have rated this hotel as excellent. Even considering those small issues, I would definitely consider staying here again next time we return to Yellowstone for a wildlife spotting weekend.

This was a nice motel, with interior corridors, and very comfortable, relaxing lobby. There was a free continental breakfast included, which included english muffin, cream cheese, and fresh fruit - our breakfast of choice. While the motel is close to the northern entrance to Yellowstone, you should allow 1/2 hour to get into the park, because of the line that sometimes forms getting into the park.

Stayed here after a long day of driving before entering Yellowstone. Arrived to a clean room and kids had fun swimming in the indoor pool. The breakfast in the morning was pretty basic continental fare, but it sufficed. A reasonably priced night as a prelude to spectacular scenery.
