Caught without a reservation in West Yellowstone, MT ... and being shocked at the prices there ... decided to drive south. Stumbled upon this hotel completely by accident when asking about lodging at the convenience store across the street. The Sawtelle sits off the road and is difficult to see. When I arrived (before dark) the front desk was already... More

Stayed for 7 nights this past September (Guests beware): Night one: Was given a handicap room, no bathroom counter, just a sink and a totally open shower area (understandable for a handicap person and a great idea for those who need it) but water goes everywhere. The guests above us were up most of the night (thin walls & ceiling),... More

Small but clean. Had to laugh at placement of bathroom sink on the side of the bed..I didn't have to go far to brush my teeth (LOL) For the price it was great..The girls at the front desk were very helpful. The drive to the West entrance of Yellowstone was only about 45 minutes. The price of this place compared... More

We stayed here for one night in August on the way to Yellowstone. It's about 15 miles from West Yellowstone. Our room was basic (one queen bed) but very clean and quiet and we got an excellent nights sleep. The room had a microwave which was useful, there were also hot drinks available in reception until they close at 10pm.... More

Check in went smooth. Internet wifi only worked in office area, which we found out closes at 10pm. Laundry facilities consisted of one washer & one dryer. The dryer did not dry the clothes. They told us to hang our clothes in our room to dry! Office person was not friendly at that point. Also, the laundry is in the... More

This is a budget motel. This place was clean and as described. The rooms are small and outdated. The pool is nice. Not too far from West Yellowstone so was a convenient and an affordable option. There is a small grocery store across the street as well as a couple of dining options. The room had a fridge and a... More

When we travel we only come back to a hotel to take a shower and get some sleep so we don’t need any extras from a place we are going to stay, all we need is a clean room. From the first look the room we got was small but not old and very clean, the only problem was that... More

The only thing that is important to me when booking a budget motel, is that the place be clean. This place was clean and as described. The rooms are small and outdated, but that was what I expected. The pool is nice and the attached RV park is beautiful. The heater was broken when we checked in, but they promptly... More

This resort charged 26% tax on the bookings. We found difficulties in contacting them to confirm a reservation and in the end, we canceled our booking due to the exorbitant cost of tax. No place ever charges 26% tax.
