My wife and I stayed here for two nights and the owner made sure we had everything we needed. The first night we came in from eating and the owner had left a treat on our bedside table for a night snack. The pool is beautiful with a full outdoor kitchen along side of it. Great location and the owner... More

This motel's owner, Sandy, is by far the most wonderful person in the motel industry! She is more than caring. She will check with you before you visit to make certain you will find her motel easily. This time my older son, daughter-in-law, and grandson came along! We stayed right next to each other and had a wonderful time. This... More

Even though all the national parks were shut down we still learned a lot of history because of Sandy the owner of Big South Fork Motor Lodge, She told us so much about coal mining and how miners were paid and why children as young as 8 years old...

Since we have family members coming from all over, we all meet and stay at the same hotel for the weekend. This year the family decided to try a different hotel in Stearns.... More

When checking in my wife was told while I was filling out the form that we were in "the lady room." I heard this and just assumed it meant the room was at a more finicky standard of cleanliness. Oh boy was I in for a surprise. We entered the slightly perfumed smelling room and when my wife turned to... More
