Looking for a short getaway that we could drive to with indoor kid activities, we stumbled upon the Morning Star Lodge. Spring break can still be cold in the pacific northwest. At first the room was not as we expected with a king bed and pull out couch bed (which the kids said was not very comfortable) instead of two... More

Studio room for the night was very nice, a little bit more $ then expected. Waterpark was ok, geared towards smaller kids then we have. Still had fun. Recommend to try it out, slides , lazy river, a few hot tubs too.

We had a wonderful stay at the Silver Mountain Morning Star Lodge. The one bedroom suite was perfect for my husband, two young daughters and I. The suite was beautiful and clean with a well appointed kitchen (pancake griddle and all). You do need to bring salt, pepper, cooking oil and all seasonings. The bathroom was nice and roomy with...

Overall experience very good, would go again. We had 4 condo units as there are 18 of us.Although we booked far in advance (September) our units were not close together which proved difficult because children ranged in age from 3 to 17. Some compensation was made. Would not recommend the tube snow sledding as line up are long,not good value... More

Upon arriving for a room I booked a while ago and have already paid for they lost all the info wich happens. But the rudeness and incompitance was astounding! I would highly recommend staying away from here!!

We enjoyed our stay at Silver Mountain Morning Star Lodge. We arrived in the morning and they allowed us early check in to our room, which was nice to be able to get into the room and get into the waterpark before lunch. The waterpark was excellent with lots of lifeguards monitoring the park to keep it safe for all.... More

We stay here every year during Sep/Oct. There is a reason we keep coming back...it is awesome! The condos are comfortable, extremely clean, and the staff is so friendly and helpful. The cleaning staff even knows our dogs by name! This place sits in the perfect setting and is the perfect 'getaway' spot.

We stayed at Silver Mountain for one night on our trip home to Chicago from Oregon. I REALLY wish we had more then one day here! We stayed on a Tuesday so the waterpark was closed but we didn't mind. The hotel was pretty empty and very quiet...just what we needed! The property itself is huge and VERY well kept.... More

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend and had a great time. We stayed here through a private rental, so I can't comment on some of the hotel services. We were visiting Idaho from Seattle to do some biking and stumbled across this resort. I was most excited about the indoor waterpark. The facilities exceeded my expectations. Often in ski... More

Really a great hotel stay kinda on the spendy side but if your here when the water park is open it's worth it!! Even basic rooms have a mini fridge, microwave, toaster,and dishwasher, not to mention the dishes and silverware for a family of four! We have been twice now and the crystal mine tour is close by and a... More
