The Historic Yodeler Motel in Red Lodge, Montana is almost as charming as it gets.

This little Bavarian-German ski lodging style establishment is cute, charming and the hospitality is wonderful as is the case everywhere in Red Lodge.

It's not fancy and rather no frills, but very comfortable, immaculately clean and central to everything in town no matter what time of year you visit. Whether you are fortunate enough to find yourself in Red Lodge for a week of fishing or hiking or golf. Or if you are there for a weekend to enjoy the slopes, the proximity to all the best Red Lodge has to offer, is perfect for any vacationing family.

Located right on the Beartooth Highway outside of Yellowstone National Park, this little lodge offers lots of pleasant amenities that make it a pleasure to visit. A clean and impeccably maintained outdoor spa is relaxing for a long soak after a day on the slopes or  in the great outdoors. Wi-fi is free throughout the property. Vending machines and ski wax room are also a plus as is coffee, fridge, microwave, and cable in each room.

Pets are also welcome in half the rooms for a nominal $5 fee.
The Yodeler is motorcycle-friendly as well with rags and wash area for motorcycles.

All the unique history, excellent dining, adorable shops and activity of downtown Red Lodge are only a few blocks walk away. Convenience and hospitality could not be better for a family visiting the beautiful area.

Owners Mac and Tulsa Dean are not only exceptionally friendly and educated on the Red Lodge area and all the excellent outdoor activities it has to offer but they are a unique breed of innkeepers who truly value their patrons and strive to provide true and genuine customer service rather than a corporate style motel model.
