We stayed here three nights while at Yellowstone Park. Our room had two queen beds and a twin bed, a little stove, small fridge and toaster. Shower was adequate. Bring your own pillows. A hairdryer would be nice, there wasn't one in the room. They came in each day and removed the garbage and removed towels if on the floor. Our electricity went out the second day. We eventually figured out the whole town was without electricity, but no one was in the office to ask any questions. You had to ring the door bell and then wait for someone to come down, but door bells don't work without electricity. But it is clean, and quiet and very good place to come back to after spending the whole day in the park. Would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I made the decision to go to Yellowstone at the last minute over Labor Day weekend and as to be expected, pretty much everything in the park was booked. We were left with the option of paying through the roof prices for suites (the only rooms large hotels seemed to have left), a single room left in a really sketchy looking motel or a cabin at the KOA with a community bathroom and no bedding.
I was actually excited that I found the Hillcrest Cottages at the last moment and to our surprise they had two rooms left. I want to stress that we absolutely were not expecting a fancy hotel. This is a basic motel but if you keep that in mind, the price is well worth it. We paid $106 with tax for a cottage with a queen sized bed, a bathroom with a shower, a TV and a small breakfast type bar with a coffee maker, microwave and mini fridge.
The shower was very small but the water pressure was good, the bed was not luxury but we slept just fine and the room overall was small, but very quiet. Did I mention how nice it was to not share walls with neighbors?
The room seemed to have been lightly remodeled recently as the paint was bright and the bathroom floor seemed new. There was also, what looked like, really cute hand painted animals along the wall. We enjoyed the little bench out front as it was a nice place to sit and watch the sky in the evening and there is a gas station/store right across the street for late night snacks. The only real cons I can say (if comparing to other budget lodging) is that there is a light that is way too low right above the bed that makes it hard to sit up on the bed. I bonked my head more than once on it. Also the air conditioner was a little on the clunky loud side (but we were happy to have air).
Comparatively speaking about surrounding cabins, if you want to stay in a park cabin - $100 will get you no private bathroom and possibly with a shared wall and good luck getting one without a six month in advance reservation and like I said about the KOA, you don't even get bedding. Overall we were happy with our stay here and are planning to take another trip to the park next year with plans to stay here again.

We love the Hillcrest Cottages! We've stayed there twice now...a week each time!
It's convenient and a fun place to stay! A nice family runs the place. They take very good care of things.
The first time we stayed in number 10 and this last time we stayed in Cabin 11.
It's always hard to leave. Gardiner is a nice town, close to Yellowstone, groceries, gas station, shops, restaurants, church. Everything you'll need is there!
We told our kids about it and our daughter and husband stayed there when they went on vacation as well.
We will always stay there when we go to our favorite National Park! :)
Great memories! Great vacation! :)

Hillcrest cottages is the best. Annie and David are awesome. Clean, quiet and very customer friendly. I love this place. The cottages are very comfortable. You can sit out side and see the town and relax. My wife and I will definitely be back .

We decided last minute to come to Yellowstone and we're lucky enough to grab the last room in this quiet little motel/cottages...the staff were super friendly and the value was great. The little murals in each room were a cute touch.

I would highly recommend this place for your next stay in Gardiner.
