At the foot of the Absaroka Range near the border with Wyoming, the scenic town of Red Lodge has one chain hotel; the 55 room, interior corridor Quality Inn, located along the main road (US 212, the Beartooth Highway), within walking distance of a small selection of shops and restaurants. To the south, the highway climbs into the mountains and reaches the northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park
after 68 miles. Much closer attractions include the Red Lodge Mountain Ski Resort and Cooney Reservoir State Park. The inn is an affordable, mid range property with amenities of free hot breakfast, an indoor pool/whirlpool, copy/fax service and a refrigerator/microwave in each guest room.
