“The only place I stay in Gardiner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

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?

My wife and I drove to Gardner on Friday morning, checked in, and spent the rest of the day in Yellowstone. We returned to the lodge just before dark and settled in for the night. The room was clean, the beds had been around a while, but were comfortable. The room was warm, and we were well-rested by morning. The location was convenient (right across the Yellowstone River from the entrance to the park) and we were sorry that it was summer so we could have left the door to the patio overlooking the river open to hear the sound of the rapids below. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: Of the 8 motels in Gardiner, this one is ranked number 3. The ground level rooms and those on the se...

In response to some of the reviews, remember that most people staying in this area just want a good place to crash after long days in Yellowstone. The proprietor, Clay is a nice guy and will be glad to offer suggestions for restaurants, etc. All rooms have a nice view of the river and looking back at the small town of Gardiner. The rooms are clean, and decent, just not brand new. We stayed here 5 years ago and returned and would return again. Gardiner is a small town, but it has its cute charms for a small tourist "hub" on the edge of Yellowstone.
