Stanley Idaho boasts a population of 67. surprisingly the town is much larger, very probably because of the number of accommodations and eateries catering to travelers. the Sawtooth is exactly as advertised, an early 20th century Hotel which has been very nicely refurbished, yet maintains a rustic charm. my room was quite small, yet appointed with period pieces. The the... More

We had our dream wedding in Stanley. Our photographer recommended the Sawtooth Hotel and it was the perfect place to stay. The restaurant was fabulous. The service was above and beyond and the room was very clean. We will not stay anywhere else next time we are in Stanley. The views are the best in town!

We found Stanley delightful and the Sawtooth Inn was a welcoming and cozy place to stay. The ambiance is rustic, but has a much finer style than the usual Western bric-a-brac. More like the Himalayas meets Idaho. Great views of the mountains and wide open spaces. Shared bathrooms were fine, and although our room was small we certainly enjoyed our... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sawtooth. Having not been in the hotel in 20+ years, we were not expecting the fantastic overhaul of the dining room and the addition of the bar and kitchen. Hats off to the owners! We stayed in one of the queen kitchenette's the first night and one of the smaller original hotel rooms... More

We brought a big group through Stanley and plumped for the Sawtooth and glad we did. Quirky place and all the better for it. Being from Britain, we are always looking for something away from the usual tedious motels and this fits the bill perfectly. The rooms are small but perfectly clean and comfortable, the owners went out of the... More

Late review from June I stayed for one night - unfortunately with me being the only guest, the bar and restaurant was closed ! Don't stay here if you need the space & amenties of a modern chain hotel... The rustic character, atmosphere and view were great. My en suite room was to say the least compact for the price,...

We stayed here after a six-day trip on the Middle Fork. The King room was lovely - very well appointed with a terrific bed and beautiful bathroom. Only problem was the water pressure and lack of hot water - very disappointing. We sprung for the private bathroom to get a hot shower, but this was lukewarm at best. The restaurant... More

The room was smaller than I thought with the six of us next time I would get a bigger room, But it was cozy and clean. We were there for a family reunion. Memories were made and my children will always remember this night.

We stayed at the Sawtooth Hotel the wekend of my cousin's wedding. Friendly staff, room was very comfortable, we stayed in Room 9. Great hotel for those looking to get away from tv, and land lines, they have free wi-fi available, cell service around town is great. We did think the restaurant was a little overpriced but the food was... More

There weren't many hotels available when I checked online for a place in Stanley so I reserved a room even though it looked pretty rustic and old and was almos$100 for one night. Unfortunately it was even worse than the pictures. Very small room. Bathroom so small it was hard to dress without hitting elbows on the walls. The bedspread... More
