Great location, very close to the north entrance of Yellowstone. Room was decent but nothing special, but the balcony views of the river made it all worth it. It was kind of a pain to carry all our stuff up to the second floor (no elevator). Very nice staff. Good value.

The gentleman that checked us in could have cared less! Our room was not cleaned and the balcony door was left open! Went back and requested a new room! The new room had been cleaned! After all that we did enjoy the balcony! When I booked I wanted to stay two night but the second night they were all booked...

Absaroka Lodge was recommended to us by Wolf Tracker Tours......Great recommendation! Location is ideal for dining out in Gardiner and entry via the North Gate for Yellowstone. Team were really helpful and friendly, suggesting a few places to eat dinner, all of which were spot-on! Rooms were average in size, clean and had all that was required, perhaps a little...

This was an absolutely ideal location for my week in Gardiner. Friendly staff, beautiful view. Loved having my own balcony to sit out on and listen to the river. The first two days there were elk there. Another day I had mule deer. Since I was traveling to take pictures of wildife this was amazing.

After a busy two days at Yellowstone this was right out of the park and offered all we needed before we started our trip back home. We loved the little patio off each room that had a view of the mountains and the Yellowstone River. We even enjoyed a beautiful rainbow over the mountains twice, once from this viewpoint and...

Dated rooms, weak wifi, poor draining tub, poor tv signsl/sound. At $175 per night, not worth it, but that's the going rate to be just outside the north gate of Yellowstone. You can walk to restaurants and shopping..which you would probably rather do than hang out in the dated rooms with bent blinds and bad tv. Nice view of the...

We got a room with a back terrace overlooking the river and across to town. Elk just came along a few feet from us, totally engrossed in grazing, not worried about us at all!

I stayed here with a group during a trip. The hotel was picked by the group lead. It is conveniently located near the entrance of the Yellowstone and on then river, closer to restaurants. The room is ok and needs updating. The carpet was clean but was almost end of its life. Overall ok for a night stay.
