Ascend Hotel Collection

A Wild West setting in the truest sense, Yellowstone National Park is an epic destination. Home to gray wolves, bison, and grizzly bears, here, humans are the invasive species. Yellowstone is a sight to behold that plays host to more than four million people each year.

In a widescreen world like this, you want to stay as close to the Park as possible. Few area hotels are as conveniently located as the Ridgeline Hotel at Yellowstone (formerly the Best Western by Mammoth Hot Springs)! Experience northern comfort, just outside the North Entrance to Yellowstone, in the community of Gardiner, Mont. When you stay here, you're minutes away from the famous Roosevelt Arch, as well as the Mammoth Hot Springs area and Yellowstone's upper loop.

Ideal location? Yes. Charming hotel? That, too. Our hotel features 86 guestrooms located in three separate buildings, many of which offer views of the Yellowstone River or the surrounding mountain range. A variety of modern conveniences are available, including an indoor heated swimming pool and hot tub, WiFi, guest laundry and two saunas (please note: our saunas are temporarily closed). Our on-site restaurant, The Yellowstone Mine, serves dinner daily. It also features a casino plus shuffleboard and pool tables in the bar area.

Cribs are available upon request at no additional charge.

Yellowstone Mine Restaurant

When it's time to eat, head on over to the Yellowstone Mine Restaurant where you can relax by the fire in the gold mine atmosphere. Featuring steaks, seafood, pastas, and more, you can rest assured you won't walk away hungry! Check out the full menu and more.

Testimonials

Testimonials

"We stayed 4 nights and had absolutely no problems. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. Because of Covid there was no daily housekeeping (but we've found that to be the case all around the country in the last 2 years). Anything we needed was supplied quickly and with no problem at all.

The shower had nice pressure and plenty of hot water. Our room was spacious, clean, and the bed and pillows were comfortable. We didn't need the heat, but the A/C worked fine. We used the pool 3 times and it was well maintained and clean."
"In a 500 year flood the staff excelled. We stayed during the big flood in Yellowstone. All roads out of Gardiner were impassable. The staff and especially the manager, were untiring in their support at a very difficult time."
"The room was clean, and very quiet (I didn’t hear neighbors at all during my stay). Loved that it was [near two of] our favorite Gardiner restaurants, Mountain Taco & Outlaws pizza. Fun to see elk and deer right outside our window."
"Well located near the National park entrance. Room was very clean, and staff was very kind and helpful! We would stay here again!"
"Our room had a river view and it was perfect! We ate breakfast (which was good) went to the bar, used the pool and the jacuzzi. It was an easy walk to other restaurants too. And the staff was very friendly and helpful."
