Reviewed 12 June 2010

We'd never been to the Lamar Valley area of Yellowstone, despite living in Idaho Falls, ID for 5 years. Cooke City is right outside (4 miles actually) the park's NE entrance. Decided to spend the night based on Trip Advisor reviews. Nice place, not fancy, pretty basic in most respects. but the owners are really friendly and Cooke City (pop 124) is just charming. Cooke City itself is about 2 blocks long, so everything's close to everything. Room was clean, neat. Can be a little noisy if you stay on lower level and someone's above you, but no big deal. The charm of Cooke City (an 1898 mining town) makes up for it. The bison roaming the street was pretty cool too. Pet friendly as well.

The Elk Horn Lodge was one of the cleanest and most comfortable places we have ever stayed. The owners were very helpful in recommending places to eat and the best places to see the wildlife. We plan on goin back to Cook City, MT for vacation again and when we do we wont stay anywhere but the Elk Horn Lodge!

The owners were friendly, the rooms are certainly nice enough. We stayed one night and had planned to return following a jaunt into the park. However, we cancelled 4 days in advance due to weather concerns and driving conditions on the Bear Tooth Highway. We were hopeful that the room would be rented as there had been 7 inquiries before our cancellation. it was not and we had to pay a full rate for an unused room.

Owners Jeff and Lisa will make you feel right at home at this small lodge / motel in the town of Cooke City, Montana. My room on the end on the first floor (number 4) was very comfortable with small refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot (and good coffee "pods"), and Wifi. You'll only make a short walk across the street to good food and cold beer at the Miners Saloon.

Just returned from a trip out west with my wife, which included a 5-night stay at the Elkhorn Lodge. We will definitely return there; the room was spacious and very clean, our hosts were very cheerful and helpful, and the location provided great access to Yellowstone park, and excellent wildlife viewing opportunities. My thanks to the Ohlingers, at the Elkhorn, for helping to make our vacation very pleasurable.

As a photographer I have been spending a month a year in the Yellowstone area. I have stayed at most of the Hotels in West Yellowstone and Gardner never finding a place that combined good service with good value. Finally, my search is over.

The Elk Horn Lodge was by far the best hotel that I have stayed at. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. The beds were the most comfortable I have experienced. The hotel staff (a husband and wife) were extremely friendly and helpful. Every room had Wi-Fi and sattelite TV (with more channels than you will find in any other hotel). And all of this came at a savings of $30 dollars a night over hotels in West Yellowstone.

I am glad to say that I have found a hotel for all of my yearly stays in the Yellowstone area. Elk Horn, you will see me again and again. Thanks for your assistance and your friendliness. You and your hotel were excellent!

If going to Yellowstone I would strongly recommend to you the Elk Horn Lodge. You won't be dissipointed!!

We stayed a week in this lodge and couldn't have asked for a better, more pleasant experience. When we needed something, they provided. We were there for a hunt and they were just as excited about the harvest as we were. You can't get more down to earth than Jeff and Lisa. WONDERFUL people and we are forever grateful for the experience and time spent in Beautiful Cooke City, MT....God Bless
