Two years ago we spent a week in Yellowstone staying within the National Park. If I'd of realised how easy it was to get to get in and out the park from Gardiner I'd of stayed here instead of Mammoth Hot Springs and saved some money. The motel room was spotless and the microwave, fridge and TV looked brand new....

This is an older motel with a certain kind of charm. However, the room was clean and smelled fresh. There was a mini-fridge and a microwave. There is a lovely grassed patio where you can sit and watch the wildlife while listening to the river. Nice little spot on the northern edge of Yellowstone.

We were just looking at a one night stay before heading into Yellowstone. This was a great place to stay for that. Nice folks. Room was as expected. Nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. It was a great place to land before entering Yellowstone Park. Motel staff was very nice and helpful at booking time. And after we checked out,...

Stayed here in late June. Can't remember the room number. It's important because of the type of room it is. It's at the end around the corner from the motel in the older section. It is two rooms in one. There is an entrance that brings you to two doors. You get both rooms basically for the price of one....

We stayed here for 4 nights. Our trip was to see Yellowstone Park. Very clean. Great location. Right at the north entrance to the park. Price was good compared to the prices for lodging inside the park. Free wifi.

Easy to get to, right out side of Mammoth Hot Springs entrance to Yellowstone, good place to spend the night before heading into Yellowstone Park, no frills, but the patio overlooks Yellowstone River, so great view! Would stay again if back in the area.

My son and I stayed overnight here during a 2 day visit to Yellowstone. The room was a little dated, yet very clean and all parts working ( AC/ shower / TV etc).. Close to walk about in little town for some shopping and dinner. Our room was on the back side and we were able to see the Yellowstone...

Affordable, clean, and situated on the Yellowstone river. There is a garden area with bbq grill and lawn chairs. We enjoyed this space each afternoon. Watch for the marmots living in the rocks across the river. One little character put on a show on the lawn above the rocks each afternoon. I think that he was digging the sprinklers in...

This is the second time we have stayed at Yellowstone River Motel. We stayed in the two bedroom suite with adjoining bathroom (toliet & shower), vanity and sinks in each room. Shower stall small but worked fine. Rooms are very basic but clean. Wifi could be spotty. Best feature of this motel is the location to the park!! Literally a...
