We had made reservations well in advance to coming to Gardiner and I would highly recommend, you do, since there were no vacancies in town I could see. Check in was very nice and we got room 101, which has no view to the mountains (note: so do rooms 102, 103 and 104); we had a table and chairs outside the room and enjoyed sitting outside on a cold(ish) and wet evening (over night it snowed and closed a number roads in the park). The views from the second floor are amazing! Our room was basic, but very clean and spacious (be aware that the floors slant a bit in the room), with two very comfortable queen beds. There is coffee, tea and cider in the lobby, but no breakfast. Parking is plenty. We did not get to see the 'resident elk', but were warned that she might be right at the front door in the morning and to use caution. The hotel is in walking distance to everything in Gardiner and we would stay again next time.

My only complaint is that the hotel has no one staffed to help after 9pm. We had a tour group above us that invited several others into their room and was very loud partying, stomping the floors, and scooting the kitchen chairs around constantly until 2am. This was only one night of our 4 night stay, however it would have been nice to have staff there when we were dealing with the noisy guests. When you tell guests no one is going to be around after 9pm, its an invite to do as you please. For the price of the hotel room you wouldn't expect that all of us losing 4 hours of sleep before taking the family out to hike and enjoy the park would have been a concern. I suggest having a policy that no outside guests are allowed in rooms, and setting quiet hours for your guests. The room itself was clean, comfortable, and the kitchenette area had everything we needed. The balcony had an amazing view of the mountains and the market was just 1 block away. There was plenty of parking for their guests. You're a stranger in a foreign land and on your own after 9pm though. If this is important to you look for 24 hour front desk hours when booking.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay here. I'm especially glad we booked a room with kitchen facilities so we could make our breakfast and lunches before heading to Yellowstone. We had perfect weather but our thoughts are with you with all the recent problems. A very helpful person, I think her name was Corrin, gave us all sorts of information on finding the laundry and grocery facilities. Couldn't have been nicer. Our room on the top floor was great because it was quiet. There is an elevator which was good for my husband's mobility issues. Also enjoyed the resident elk in the parking lot.

Stayed here after leaving the north gate of Yellowstone. The hotel was pretty basic. It was clean and is on the edge of town. The view from the rooms is great and there were elk walking in the street right in front of the hotel, which was awesome. It was a good stay.

Nice stay while visiting Yellowstone, favorite stay of the trip!

This place was a breathe of fresh air. Clean, spacious, friendly staff, great view, close to everything. The price was not bad compaired to other places we stayed while in Yellowstone. Neat little town with a few quiant restaurants. Great when going to Mammoth Falls, Tower Falls, and Lamar Valley.
