"Loved it. Room was clean and comfortable. Only stayed 2 nights, but wished we would have avoided the west side of Yellowstone and just stayed here for a week. Very quiet and the local people were so nice. We will be back soon!"

"While there, I highly recommend booking a personal wildlife tour with Silver Gate Guides -it was the highlight of our Yellowstone experience."
