Rustic location, in a fairly limited town that closes fairly early, so late comers beware and plan ahead.
Check in ; Farily quick although not sure why it was done in the dark.
Rooms: These were big, well furnished and clean. Fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, TV, WiFi (but very sketchy service). Parking limited. Bathrooms were decent size.
Restaurants nearby were the Bear Tooth Cafe: good food, we had an excellent meal one night, unfortunately they ran out of food fairly early the next so we had to go across the road to a hotel (forget name) whose food was not as adventurous but still good. Breakfast was at Lovin Cup Cafe:limited but good menu.
There are a couple of gas stations nearby, and apparently a bakery that we did not visit.
Overall, reasonable proximity to the north east part of Yellowstone and an interesting place to stay as you are very close to the mountains.
