I visited Yellow Stone Park with two friends and stayed in this wonderful place for one night in 2013. The place is like a Yellow Stone Park theme hotel, very well managed. Owners are super friendly. The dog's name is the same as mine :). We had a very comfortable rest there, in the morning, the breakfast was prepared and...

A little off the "beat'n path", but what a gem the Yellowstone River Lodge is! Dan and Jan Sayer are wonderful and accommodating hosts. They went out of the way to make you welcomed, it was really better than staying with family. We had a lovely King cabin facility, that was just steps from the river. Fashionable, spacious, and with...

Don't book a room at this hotel unless you're standing in front of it. We cancelled 3 days before the check in date and they still kept the entire amount. It just seems a bit ridiculous to have such a severe policy.

Following 16 hours of travel it was a delight and respite to check into the YRL. Dan and Jan are pleasant innkeepers and possess the loveliest spot this side of Yellowstone. We enjoyed the privacy and location of the Whitewater cabin on the river. We shall return!

We arrived the afternoon of the day that Felicia H wrote her bad hair day remarks. Obviously she doesn't know how to control the temperature with a thermostat! We had booked the same room which she had and looked through our reservation confirmation paperwork because of her misguided remarks. Our paperwork clearly stated under the guest name line what the...

I booked this B&B because we had an event in Columbus, and the only other option for breakfast in Columbus, Montana, is McDonalds. As soon as we arrived, the hosts informed us that Breakfast was not included in our room. This was a bit upsetting since my booking clearly stated that bfast was included in our room rate. The hosts...

I am sorry that there was confusion for Felecia concerning the breakfast issue. (And I'm happy to say that there ARE other restaurants that serve breakfast in Columbus!) Felicia did not book a B&B room; she booked a 'Riverside Guest Room' that has an option for a breakfast at an additional fee. We attempted to communicate this prior to her...

We hoped for a comfortable, restful stay on our way to Billings after a memorable winter trek to Yellowstone. Great find! The room was new, well appointed, and very clean. Oh,..and what a night sky! Jan & Dan were great hosts and provided a very flavorful breakfast. Highly recommended.
