Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This property was very clean and comfortable. Very spacious and the views were fabulous. We were so close to the entrance of Yellowstone. This property is a little gem in the town of Gardiner, MT. Gardiner, MT is a small town best kept secret as well!

What a great place for our base to visit Yellowstone. The cabins were nicely decorated and comfortable. The bathroom looked like it had recently been renovated. I appreciated the bear spray loan for our hikes. Nice touch and much appreciated.

This is an amazing place to stay after a long few days in the park. Strongly recommend a cottage with a river view. Our room had a small kitchen and the town market is just a short walk with everything needed to cook a great meal. We enjoyed ours on the deck overlooking the river. So peaceful and the staff were amazing. Allowed up to check in early. Thank you and will be back again.

We spent our first night of vacation at this place and everyone liked it overall. Very friendly staff. We were able to walk to dinner and even saw wildlife on the walk to/from the facility. The kids liked the bunk beds. All of us thought the beds were comfortable. My only gripe/suggestion would be that the light from I think was the road/sidewalk was very bright. Even with the shade pulled down over the door, the light was very bright. You can see that in the pic. May be worth it to invest in some true night shade to block that light. A minor gripe overall.

We enjoyed our stay at the Yellowstone Cottages. It was close to the north entrance of Yellowstone NP. Grocery store is just a quick walk from the cottage. We ate dinner on the deck and watched the elk graze across the river.

We stayed in the studio cottage (#1?) and it was very adequate for our two nights there. The room has been updated and was very clean. The bed was quite comfortable. It was so nice to have a Keurig coffee maker in the room along with a few plates, cups & utensils to use. The large shared patio/balcony was very nice to drink coffee and view the river down below. We even saw a couple of elk at the bottom of the river walking through. We would definitely stay here again!

First impressions matter! The reception was warm and welcoming, the grounds were very clean and well laid out. The view overlooking the river and town from the shared balcony was nice. You could see the Roosevelt Arch in the distance. The unit we had, cottage # 5 was impeccably clean and updated! The bed was so comfortable and linen fresh and crisp and welcoming after a day of travel to get here. I highly recommend staying here! Best in town without a doubt!

We stayed three nights in eagle cabin. It was modern, had many useful amenities and was very clean. The riverside location makes it a perfect spot to watch sunset and walk into town. East parking and enjoyed daily housekeeping. Only downside- room is not dark enough in morning if you want to sleep in- but who really sleeps at the best National Park? Head to Wonderland for an excellent meal and entertainment. Finally, staff were very accommodating! Highly recommend to stay in north entrance to Yellowstone and avoid west entrance which feels like the Vegas of Montana!
