We stayed in Stanley for 2 nights as a base for dayhiking in the Sawtooth Mountains. We were the first clients of the season, so we had the place to ourselves. (Note: while the Inn opens in mid-May, the restaurant (Back Country Bistro) does not open until late June.) The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. They... More

It was a very comfortable stay. The rooms were a nice size with a very comfortable bed. The balcony runs the length of the building with no dividers between rooms. (we loved this option because we shared it with family) The location was very convenient to all the food, drinks and grocery. I would highly recommend it.

My wife and I have been coming to Stanley for 8 years. Our favorite place to stay is without question the High Country Inn. It's comfortable, clean, has a wonderful location just on the outskirts of "downtown" and the staff headed up by Melinda and including the trio of Australian Shepherd's (Ringo, Mesa and Boulder) is simply superlative, friendly and...

The most personable and hard working hotel general manager, chef and staff I have ever known. The weather was cold and rainy but these fine people more than made up for it with their hospitality and friendliness. They made my son and I feel like family. I would say these rooms are the "cleanest in the world" but since I... More

I wish I could say more nice things about this place but the first thing I noticed was how filthy the carpet in the dining room was! Come on owners, you're have an expensive restaurant but are too cheap to put down a decent wood floor?! The rooms were dated but large. The "full" buffet breakfast was just ok.. Nothing... More

Clean comfortable rooms, great food and friendly staff made our stay a good one. The four course meal was very good and was accompanied by soft guitar music. Stanley is centrally located to enjoy many outdoor activities. What a great place to relax and see the sights.

We booked one night at this inn and had mixed opinions - my wife thought it was overpriced, while I thought it was reasonable value. It is on the pricey side at $132, but this area is more expensive. The room itself was large and clean, the included breakfast was very good, and the staff was friendly. However, the carpet... More

We always stay here when we come to Stanley. Rates are reasonable and staff is always friendly. Awesome breakfast in morning and rooms give you that rustic mountain feeling!! Hotel is located on the main street so you are walking distance to every place in town.
