The condos were better than I expected! My friend and I had a two day snowmobiling class out there and thought we would stay the week. We decided on a condo from reading about them on the website. When we arrived there was no receptionist available to help us check in as a sign on the door said they were... More

Upon arrival in the condo it was immediately apparent that it had NOT been cleaned. There were candy wrappers by the fireplace, chips on the stairs, microwave had internal spatters, no soap or Linnens in the upper restroom. Utensils by the stove had food still on them. Black bubbles are not normal in a Hot Tub are they? IMMEDIATE ATTENTION... More

The room was neat and clean, but so small it was difficult to use. There was a microwave and coffee maker but no refrigerator. No real nightstands - just a tiny shelf on a lamp on only one side of the bed. Only one chair because there was not room for two. Barely room to stow luggage without it being... More

I called ahead and explained very clearly that I have a large rig, towing a trailer (65’ overall). They assured me there would be no problem. Well, the site may have been long enough, and if I was camping in a helicopter it would have been fine. The problem is, this campground is overgrown with trees and maneuvering to a... More

Sawtelle Resort SAVED OUR VACATION!! We were scheduled to stay at a friends cabin in Island Park, ID over Labor Day weekend. The bed we slept on at friends house was an old futon with a thin pad. When I was 20 that wasn't a problem. But I am old now. Unable to sleep due to aches and pain we... More

I recently tried to stay at this “resort” over Labor Day weekend. It was a last minute decision as I had family already staying there. I made my reservation online and planned on staying in a tent on one of their tent sites with my family which included three young children. On the Sawtelle Resort website there was a posting...

We were going to Yellowstone from Idaho Falls and did not want to pay the high prices in West Yellowstone. We happened to pass through Island Park. I started looking through trip advisor and found Sawtelle. We called and he said only the economy room was left. It was just my husband and I, so we decided to go and... More

We usually stay in State and National campgrounds in a small RV, but were here for three nights with some friends who stayed in the hotel. I was really disappointed by the RV park. I didn't have high expectations but it was kind of a mess. This is ATV country, so everyone in park had an ATV that they were... More

Average in everything except price: fairly high for the location. no breakfast, room comparably small and with certain "moisture" smell. Clean and fits the purpose: sleep over and have fun in the nature. Staff is nice and offers vouchers for nearby Mexican restaurant: one can get either starter either dessert for free. There is a microwave in the room, and... More
