Pahaska Teepee Resort once served as Buffalo Bill’s hunting lodge—how’s that for some history? The hotel is situated at the eastern gateway to Yellowstone National Park, and offers simple, cozy cabins, some with kitchens. Horseback riding and hiking can be enjoyed right from the resort, and there’s also a restaurant onsite.

The location was great, bed was comfortable, room basic but clean, and the trail riding guide was friendly. That’s the good. Now the bad. The girls behind the counter were not friendly at all. They were not in a hurry to help anyone and would walk off with a line a mile long. It sounded like squirrels or chipmunks were running inside the cabin. I’m sure they were outside but it sounded so close to my head it was unsettling. The bathroom door did not lock and the curtain was about 4 inches too short so we had to block it with a towel for privacy. The restaurant was bad. My glass had lipstick on it and I wasn’t wearing any. The nachos (which I thought would be the safest) were horrible. I’ve never had kidney beans and stewed tomatoes on my nachos. Also a bit pricey for what you get. We went one mile down the road on our second day to the next lodge to eat a good steak dinner. There was no gas at the gas station so don’t count on that. No cell phone signals but don’t worry there is a working pay phone!

Decent place for a reasonable price. Very nice spacious room in a good condition, parking space right next to the cabin. Good location not far from the east entrance to the Yellowstone park. There is a restaurant (that we didn't have a chance to use), bar and a shop. Gas station as well.
