First off, if you are trying to decide between West Yellowstone or Gardiner to stay while visiting the park, (I cannot stress this enough) choose Gardiner! And if, like us, you don't want to spend a fortune to spend the night, you can't go wrong with Hillcrest Cottages. We loved this place, from the perfect location to the down-home, no nonsense service and style of the place. Yes the cabin was small, the bed not as comfy as ours at home, and the TV wasn't HD, but it was clean, the people were very nice, it is close to everything and you have your own little house! The cabin we stayed in had a good sized but not full size refrigerator, a microwave, and a coffee maker with coffee. It is on a little hill overlooking the area but right on the main road within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and a bridge over the beautiful Yellowstone River. If you take a little drive up the dirt road up towards Jardine from the cottages, you will be rewarded with a beautiful view of the town and surrounding area.
