We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment during the Labor Day weekend. We paid $160 per night. The unit consisted of the main room with a couch 2 chairs and TV. There was a bedroom (queen bed) with attached 1/2 bath on the right. When you walked thru the main room you entered the dining area with a full kitchen...

We loved our stay at Hillcrest (stayed 2-nights in the beginning of our Yellowstone trip) and in Gardiner. We got Cottage A, at first we thought it was weird that one room is a "combo" bedroom/kitchen/breakfast room, and the other room is a "combo" bedroom/living room. But we got used to it just fine; and the location of the cottages...

We stayed in a cottage with two queen beds for one night last week. We thought the cabin was absolutely charming. Everything was so clean. Someone had painted beautiful pictures on the walls which we really enjoyed. It was so very quiet we had no trouble sleeping at all. It was a very easy walk to the Roosevelt Arch which...

Everything about our stay here was wonderful! I read a couple of reviews complaining about the small size, but it was really just what I would have expected. A cottage is supposed to be little! We had two queen sized comfy beds, nice fluffy pillows, and extra twin bed which we didn't need but provided more space to sit. There...

I decided to get a room with the kitchen just so that I can cook instead of eating out. There's only 1 grocery store in the town of Gardiner that close @ 9 so if you plan on cooking you better get out of the park earlier. All I need to do is to ask for pots & pans, utensils...

We arrived in Gardiner without a room reserved and were referred to Hillcrest by another booked hotel. We managed to get a room before they were all taken and were very pleasantly surprised. The room was clean with a remodelled bathroom and kitchenette. The air conditioner was a god-send because it was a brutally hot day. Only minor downside--no dishes...

Spent 2 nights here along with 6 other couples. We had one of the 'motel' rooms. The rooms was small, but nicely furnished. Large bathroom. Had great service. Easy walking to downtown.

Hillcrest cabin offers you something more than a multi-storey motels. That's the kitchenette which you can make your own food and sandwich the day before you visit the park. The location of the cabin is well-situated with a few minute drive away from the north entrance of the park. The price was a steal in the yellowstone area. Hillcrest cabin...

We stayed in a one bedroom cottage which was quite neat and clean. However, the room was exceptionally small, the bed was against one wall which just left enough room to get to the bathroom. There was a small table with two chairs and the TV was mounted above this. We forgot when getting up a couple of times and...
