We were able to stay two nights in the River House - a three bedroom home next to the river. It was amazing. Beds are super comfortable. The house is huge! Nice patio area outside. We watched Elk while having breakfast outside. Mike was very nice and helpful. There is a king bed in the master, a queen bed in one of the other guest bedrooms and two twins in the other. In addition, there are three pull out sofas. Kitchen was well stocked. Full size washer and dryer.
Very convenient to the North Yellowstone entrance. Hope we can come back and stay longer!

The motel is sort of hart to get to although you can see it from the main drag through town. The rooms were large with a kitchenette and smallish full sized fridge. The bed was extremely comfortable. There was a bag of ice for us in the freezer, along with bottled water and coffee making supplies in the kitchenette. The management made us feel right al home for our 2 day stay. Added bonus was a family of elk standing outside our room in the early morning

Lovely escape from the park
We stayed here for two nights per recommendation of MacNeil Lyons, owner of Yellowstone Insight Tours (highly recommend). We drove in from Canyon Lodge, driving through Norris and stopping at all the amazing sights/attractions along the way and having lunch in Mammoth before landing in Gardiner. Gardiner is a lovely western town. We took pics at the Roosevelt Arch, drove around the local high school and park to see the enormous amount of elk and saw lots of pronghorn.
We were greeted warmly when we arrived, and stayed at in lovely, clean two bedroom motel room with a well stocked kitchen and nice sized living area. I wish it had two bathrooms but we did just fine as a family of 4. We watched a lovely sunset from the rocking bench outside our room and were greeting by many elk literally outside our door!
We ate at The Raven (I don't recommend), Wonderland Cafe (HIGHLY RECOMMEND) and got coffee at Tumbleweed Bookstore and Cafe (recommend) and got food and snacks at Gardiner Market.
I would highly recommend staying here one night, tour with Yellowstone Insight the next morning (5:30 am pickup) then move on down the loop later that day.
They have fabulous wifi as well.

Beautiful New Riverside Vacation Homes!
The Yellowstone Gateway Inn is bringing its laid-back, boutique-style hotel amenities to two new full-sized homes on the banks of the Yellowstone river! These two homes, across the street from the main property are perfect for a larger family (or even two families!). Our home (114 Yellowstone St.), billed as a “3 bedroom house” could easily accommodate 8 guests, with more sleeping spots available on sofa beds in the living room.
The house has just been fully renovated (as of July 2019) and features two beautiful new luxury bathrooms, a brand new fully-equipped kitchen and hotel-type bedding along with the aforementioned tasteful boutique decor of the main hotel. It has state-of-the-art TV’s and electronic entertainment centers in both the living and bed rooms along with ample Wi-Fi capability.
The homes have a riverside frontage (or one lot back) in a quiet area with a small private patio area overlooking the river.
Best of all is the care taken by the owner/manager, Mike, along with his able-assistant, Roger, who seem dedicated to make one’s stay as comfortable as possible. These accommodations are ideal for any family, especially those considering a longer stay in the beautiful northern Yellowstone area!

Don't let surrounding area fool you!
This is a cluster of little cabins tucked away in Gardiner. It is a good place to stay on your way in or out of Yellowstone. Cabins have any extras you will need. The owners have thought of everything! Our cabin was a mix of dated and updated decor, but was is clean and comfortable. You can tell that the owners take pride in providing a nice stay. We had a kitchen, two flat screen TVs, a nice bedroom and bath, writing desk, internet, eating area and den. There were extra blankets, towels, toiletries, and places to put your luggage. The location is immediately outside the park.
