We booked this hotel because the prices at West Yellowstone were rocket high. The resort is just 20 minutes drive from West Yellowstone and the entrance to Yellowstone NP. Our room was small, but very clean. The indoor pool was nice and clean as well. The hotel is very quiet and the people at reception were kind and friendly. I... More

Planned for about a year to spend a week at Yellowstone. Could not find a reasonable 2 bedroom place anywhere except Sawtooth. The room was great and included a hot tub and fireplace! Close enough to Yellowstone, Grand Tetons and Jackson Hole that we were able to visit everything we wanted to see!

We stayed here our second night in West Yellowstone and it was half the price of the motels downtown. The rooms weren't fancy but they had a fridge and microwave and were clean and that's all that matters to us. The staff was super friendly and helpful. They don't offer breakfast so they suggested a place down the road. We... More

Nice place to stay close to parks and lakes. The staff is nice and helpful. Close to Connie's which is a great place to eat. Pet friendly. The indoor pool is perfect for the kids. We came just before the snow came and it is raining but we are all bundled up and our dog loved the open space.

I stayed here on my way to Yellowstone. It was much less expensive than anything in West Yellowstone, let alone the park. The room was very spacious and clean. The front desk people were friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant across the street and a Subway next door. It is only 20 minutes to West Yellowstone. I would stay... More

The checkin was very fast and straightforward. We could park directly in front of our room. When you enter the room, a small sink is on the ride side before entering the bathroom. The queen sized bed (there were two of them) had been shorter than other queen sized beds. The fridge was terribly loud. The first night we were... More

Second year in a row we have stayed here. Half the price of rooms in West Yellowstone Montana, and only extra 20 miles to Yellowstone National Park, also near to Mesa Falls to the south. Clean comfortable rooms. Friendly helpful front desk staff.

This is our second stay at this resort, the first time was 12 years ago and the place is as good as remembered. We spent a week in the motel this time around, for a family reunion. We had family staying in the RV park as well. The staff was kind enough to block off the road where most of... More

Great RV park in the trees. Nice spots, lot's of trees and just off the highway with very little road noise. Indoor pool and spa too. Just about 15 to 20 minutes to Yellowstone. Lots of stuff to see in Island Park too like Mesa Falls.
