West Yellowstone was fully booked and very very expensive. This is a cheaper option if you want to stay nearby. Room was okay. Nothing special but all,you need for a night over. We didn't experience the neighborhood and the park. We only stayed there for a night and moved to Yellowstone NP the days after. We loved the dinner at... More

Sawtelle offers guests a deep discount compared to hotels in West Yellowstone, but this is a "you get what you pay for." While it tries to play up its "resort" name, unfortunately it's more like a decent motel. The good part is it at least accomplishes what a decent motel should be...clean rooms at affordable prices. We arrived late after... More

I booked the Sawtelle after searching prices/locations, etc., close to Yellowstone. Even though it was after Labor Day, there were lots of 'no vacancies' so I extended my search and found the Sawtelle. The prices are lower than West Yellowstone, and even though it is a little out of the way, we were really glad we chose this hotel. The... More

This place has good people to work with. we arrived late evening and had nowhere to stay and they helped us tremendously by giving us a great rate and somewhere to stay. we were only going to stay one night but because of the hospitality, we stayed an extra night. Very nice place to stay and has great cabin condos... More

Sawtelle is not fancy, but is clean, comfortable and affordable. It's nestled in a woody area about 20 miles from the entrance to Yellowstone. There was a little confusion upon check-in, because I thought I had requested a 1st floor room because we have an old dog who doesn't do stairs. The front desk staff juggled reservations and we got... More

Planned our honeymoon trip to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons, but couldn't get through the mountains because of snow. We were past the cancellation date, but called the hotel to see if they would issue us a credit to use during the Summer instead of just taking our money. The manage was rude and refused to work with us. The hotel... More

The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. We stayed here and in Yellowstone and both experiences were great, but we were able to take a longer vacation because the rates at Sawtelle were so much more reasonable. Very friendly environment, beautiful setting. The basic rooms are basic but good for the price. The three-level log cabin-style townhouses are... More

Stayed one night on the way from Stanley to Jackson area. A small room with worn carpet, tiny sink, and dim lighting. Even the artificial plant looked tired. No nearby restaurant except for the Island Park Lodge across the highway. There is a reason the price is relatively low - you get what you pay for. Will not stay there... More

Good value accommodation. Decent shower and wi fi access, however complicated cable and hard bed. However, I can't fault price, coffee maker and location . It only took 30 minutes to drive to the park in the morning and we stocked up at Robin's Roost across the road and ate locally.

The Sawteele Mountain Resort was clean, attractive and comfortable. A welcome resting spot on our journey to Yellowstone. There was a coffee maker in the room but no nearby restaurant open for breakfast, except Subway.
