“Best motel in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012 via mobile

This is the best place to stay for a reasonable price ($70 plus tax). This is money well spent!
No breakfast, but rooms clean and nice with two queens, all in good shape. Nice view on the Yellowstone river and the rest of the town.
Every room got his own terrace with 4 chairs, some will call this motel very basic but we've stayed in two star hotels that where less comfortable. We saw some of the other motels and hotels around town and this is defenitly one of the nicest.
So if you visit Yellowstone this is a good place to spend the night(we did 3)

Stayed May 2012, travelled as a couple

If you want the best view in Gardiner at a very reasonable rate this is the place. Rooms have patios that overlook the yellowston river with mountains in the background. There really isn't much for kids but it is a great quiet getaway for those who just want to relax. Rooms are nice but very basic

Absaroka Lodge provides a nice, clean stay overlooking the wonderful Gardiner River and within walking distance of most of the stores and restaurants of Gardiner. The view makes the value an excellent stay.

After a day exploring what was open in Yellowstone at this time of year, this place is just across the river from the North entrance. We paid $50 + tax for a double room. The room was extremely basic, but had what you needed to get by. Sure there are no frills & luxuries, but at this price I wasn't expecting them. Our room had a balcony, which overlooked the river & Yellowstone.

There is no breakfast here, but there is coffee in reception. We had dinner just across the river at the Cowboy Ranch & Grill, which was pleasant and good value for money.

This is a basic, no frills place to stay. If you're just looking for somewhere to rest your head then this could be the place for you. If you want pampering & luxury then you will be disappointed!

Only $55 per room and the location right outside of Yellowstone can't be beat! Don't expect a lot of frills, but for 1 night, not bad.

The price during the winter season is excellent. If you stay on the 3rd floor you can have a kitchenette for a little more money. The owners are friendly and accommodating. The view of the Yellowstone River and surrounding mountains is breath-taking. But the most important thing was a clean room!

For the price this hotel is perfect. We came in after a full day snowmobiling in Yellowstone and wanted somewhere close, warm and not too expensive and the Absaroka is all that. The heating works well, the Internet works well, the beds are comfortable, the shower is hot. What more could you need?
