beautiful mountains and river view, wildlife abounds on sight and surrounding area--antelope, elk, bison, and even grizzlies a short drive away, friendly and accommodating staff, delicious hot breakfast...Greg, owner, is quite knowledgeable where spectacular views and concentrations of wildlife are located in YNP and Grand Tetons. One may drive a short way to YNP or just relax outside one's room...

WOW! That's what we have to say after experiencing this wonderful Inn. Great rooms, unbelievable breakfast every morning (home made, Montana natural products) made with love by the staff, elk and other wild animals all around the facility, and great directions on what to see in North Yellowstone by Innkeeper Greg. Also, great recommendations on local restaurants. A little pricey,...

Hi daveandm, Thanks for your kind review. We appreciate you taking the time tell the world what we are about. Just so you know, most of the motels in Gardiner were around or over $200 per night so what we offer is not a bad deal. We look forward to seeing you again.

Once again we enjoyed a wonderful few days here. The Maiden Basin room is comfortable, clean and offers sufficient storage as well as a convenient kitchenette. Breakfasts are homemade and delicious, offering a choice of oatmeal ( different flavor each morning), hot main dish, yogurt, toast, and dessert - many steps above your usual motel breakfast.

Hi pverwilt, Thanks for your review on Gardiner and Yellowstone Basin Inn. I agree that Gardiner is the best place to stay if you are visiting Yellowstone. I always try to offer great and friendly service. I am more then willing to offer information on West Yellowstone, I just feel it is a busy and overcrowded city next to nature....
