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

This is a fine place for an overnighter but we stayed three nights while visiting Yellowstone Nat Park. It is about a 30 minute drive to the park from the hotel. Hotel rooms are small, clean but not in good repair. Our toilet leaked , light bulbs were burned out and the bed squeaked! Electrical consisted of a lot extension... More

We had a family vacation with 33 people in 6 family units. We rented 4 condo units. 3 had adjoining doors for large gatherings. The kids liked the swings in the little park and the swimming pool (Indoor). The adults loved the private hot tub for each unit. They were clean and well maintained. Each unit has it's own outdoor...

Like other reviewers, the best word to describe is "Simple". It's clean and affordable. You are less than 30 min. from Yellowstone's west entrance. Truly this place is nothing more than a place to get some sleep after a long day of sightseeing. I did take the suggestion of another traveler and brought my own soap and shampoo, and was... More
