After spending a week + in the Black Hills, etc, we decided to get a motel close to Yellowstone Park. W. Yellowstone was way too expensive and after checking out Gardiner, MT, 5 miles north of the gate, we decided to stay at the Hillcrest. Darling little cabins with kitchenettes ($100.00 / 2 people), with friendly owners/staff, and altho there was No Smoking the little porch and bench allowed a smoker that first /last smoke of the day. Not an inconvenience at all, coming from a smoker! Would definately stay there again!!

Room Tip: no swimming pool or fitness centre---not needed if you're in the Park everyday.

Great little cottages in the village of Gardiner right at the north entrance to Yellowstone. The cottages are roomy, have cooking facilities, good sized bathroom, large tv, what more do you need and even a view of the mountains. The owner was very helpful when booking and offered anything needed to cook with. Highly recommend, you won't be disappointed.

We booked this based on price, location and amenities offered and we feel Annie and Art delivered on all of these. The area was quiet and within the town so nowhere was more than a 5-10 minute walk, if that. We borrowed enough crockery and kitchen utensils to be able to make ourselves basic meals but to be honest, there are a good selection of tempting restaurants around Gardiner so we quickly abandoned our idea of preparing any other food than breakfast. When we did use the appliances they all worked fine and without incident.

Bed was clean and comfy and I think the towel fairies made an appearance every day to change them, even tho we would've happily kept the same for a few days. Wifi was a secure connection but sometimes a bit sketchy, having said that, we didn't come all the way to Yellowstone to be glued to the Internet.

The park entrance is literally up the street and round the corner and for $88 a night for.a queen bed cottage in this area, you really can't go wrong, Both Art and Annie were very helpful and friendly too.

I've been to Yellowstone about a dozen times since my first trip in 2007. I discovered Hillcrest Cottages in 2008 and have stayed there during every trip since. The owners are very friendly and helpful, and I have always been pleased with my stay. Several times I've had to slightly adjust my travel arrangements (dates and/or number of beds/rooms) and they've always been patient with me and accommodating.

The cottages are clean, well maintained, and equipped with microwave, small fridge, and two burner stove. For those who need cookware, plates, bowls, cups, etc....all you have to do is ask the owners. Most of the cottages have a small porch that you can sit on, which is especially nice in the fall when the elk are active on and around the property.

The cottages provide a nice place to wind down after a long day in the park, and a comfortable place to sleep at night at an affordable rate. Yes, the cottages are small....that's why they're called "cottages"!

We enjoyed our one night stay here. The cottages are in a convenient location right near the entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Our cottage was very small, but clean, and well equipped with a microwave and fridge, which is always a nice touch. My only complaint was the window unit air conditioner was located in the corner, so it took hours to cool down such a tiny area. Wifi worked fine in our cabin, and we were on the outskirts of the place. Would probably stay here again, as Gardiner is very overpriced and this was a good deal compared to everything else in town.
