We stayed in the Sawtooth Hotel for one night on a Monday. It feels like a saloon hotel from the old West with lots of timber and knick knacks from past and present. I believe the shell is original and the inside has been thoughtful updated to keep it's charm. The staff are lovely, the rooms are clean, the beds... More

I thought this was a great place to stay. We had room #9 and it had a great view. The room was decorated so tastefully. Not your cookie cutter white boring bedding. I thought our bed was so comfy and soft. I really felt like I was at home. Our room and the hotel were very clean and we always... More

We spent two nights at the Sawtooth Hotel as part of a month-long, cross-country road trip that included stays in ten different states. My wife and I both agreed that our favorite hotel (and also our favorite food of the trip) was the Sawtooth Hotel. Clean rooms, great staff, amazing food, and a quaint, perfect small town in Stanley.

This is a small hotel with 2 rooms with en-suite (choose number 10!) and some rooms with shared facilities. The rooms are on the second floor with the restaurant on the first. The restaurant provides good food but also some noise in the evenings. There is a sign that they try to keep the noise down after 10 PM. They... More

There's not a room in the entire hotel where you don't hear absolutely everything (and I mean everything). We could hear dinner guests' conversation, bar tenders' conversations, every person walking in and out on our floor, every conversation uttered in the rooms surrounding us. No bathrooms in the rooms, they're down the hall, with the two showers you'll share with... More

We had a very nice visit to Stanley, Idaho and enjoyed staying at the rustic Sawtooth Hotel. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, rooms were quaint but comfortable and the views were spectacular. To top it off, we had a delicious breakfast at the Stanley Baking Company which is owned and operated by the same people. All in all... More

What an awesome little place! Kelly was super sweet and helpful. The room was small but all we needed to do was shower and sleep! A beautiful view of the Sawtooth mountains from our room! A walk down the block is a fun bar and around the corner an awesome bakery for breakfast! We loved it and will definitely be... More

The room was clean, quaint and tastefully rustic. However, we didn't sleep well at all due to the noise level. Our room was on the second floor above the restaurant/bar (as are all of the rooms) and we might as well have rolled out a sleeping bag in the middle of the restaurant floor. The bar/restaurant got louder as the... More

Liz, I am sorry to hear you had a bad experience at our historic Sawtooth Hotel. Yes the dining room was quite noisy with large groups last weekend and I apologize. Closing up did take a bit longer than normal and I did have to ask diners to try and lower their voices. I am a bit confused about the... More

The beds where soft, way to soft (as least to my liking). So far this was by far the worst bed I had on the 2+ week trip we are making. At some point during the night I decided to sleep on the floor. Our room was really small (but we knew that up front) The view was really great... More

Decided to take scenic route from Boise to Driggs and Stanley is the ideal place to break the drive. The innkeepers were communicative, cordial and helpful; and the accommodations were rustic, compact, clean, complete and comfortable. Although the hotel's bar and restaurant were closed on Wednesdays, everything in Stanley is in walking distance and I had a very nice dinner... More
