We stayed here for four nights in August in a kitchen unit. The unit was very clean and the staff was very friendly. An excellent value right on the river! Kept all the windows open at night and fell asleep to the sound of the river.....never heard any noise from any other guests during our entire stay. I selected the...

We stayed here for one night in order to catch our wildSide LLC wildlife tour at 5:30 AM. The hotel is laid back, clean and well cared for. The town was very pleasant despite being extremely small. Our room was a nice size and had a hair dryer (upon request) and a coffee maker. Hearing the river running during the...

We appreciate your kind review and glad you enjoyed your stay. Where a lot of the other hotels in town have decided to raise there rates to close to $200 a night we've decided to keep ours affordable with clean rooms, great service and the best location in town. Look forward to seeing you again.

We chose this because of the beautiful pictures we saw of it online. I was expecting it to be kind of fancy, but it is actually a motel with very small, plain, but clean rooms. The balcony view is breathtakingly gorgeous--Yellowstone River rushing by and snow-capped mountains as a backdrop. Wow, the view and location make this place. The manager...

We stayed at Yellowstone's Absaroka Lodge because our favorite lodging at the Best Western was over $225 a night compared to the $135 for this property, was out of our budget for this trip. The lodge is located right outside the northern most entrance of Yellowstone National Park providing easy access to the park. Except for the fact that we...

We appreciate you choosing our property this time for your Yellowstone trip. I'm biased but I think we have one of the best properties in Gardiner and we've chosen to remain affordable at the same time. We look forward to serving you in the future.

Clean rooms most of which have a great balcony deck overlooking the river in a good location in Gardiner. Close to everything with stunning views. Pleasant and very helpful management. No frills, but no problems.

We stay here every trip that we aren't camping, which is becoming more and more as we feel so spoiled after a stay. Great prices, especially in the off season, excellent location, every room has a balcony, and wildlife in the backyard. I have never stayed when there wasn't deer, and often elk and the occasional bison, on the grounds....

We spent the last four nights at the Absaroka and like always, we didn't want to leave. Clean and comfortable rooms with the best view to be found. It's so nice to be able to hear the river running by while enjoying the view from the balcony. On our last trip the Lodge had added new mattresses to the rooms....

The location of this lodge is wonderful with views (from your deck) of the river and the Absaroka Mountain Range. The rooms are very simple and plain BUT clean!

While the decor on the inside is nothing special, the queen bedroom and bathroom was spacious enough for us. The rooms are clean and the beds are extremely comfortable. The lodge is well located on the main road in town near restaurants and close to the Yellowstone entrance. The nearby Cowboy bar and grill just over the bridge is a...

We stayed here and had the best time. We sat on the balcony at night listening to the river and sipped on a nice local brewed beer purchased from the local store. We had the best family time ever. The feller that runs the place was awesome. Great customer service and he put us in rooms next to each other....
