We came to Big Sky to visit Yellowstone, which is around 45 minutes away from this hotel. We were greeted with a helpful staff member that showed us around the area. There were also apples available for free as a refreshment (which is definitely more healthy than the cookies that most chains offer!), and the lobby also displayed a nice... More

Well located near several very good restaurants. Five miles to additional restaurants at the two ski resorts on the mountain. Lobby was very nice and comfortable. Front desk staff were generally helpful and efficient. Continental breakfast was typical for this type of property and good quality. The room was the main 'negative we experienced. Beds were comfy but that's where... More

Checked in about 2pm, had a room ready, or so they thought. The previous occupants flooded the bathroom and adjoining carpet , so housekeeping set up a fan to dry the carpet. They came back to check on the progress once, and never came back. I had to take the fan downstairs to the front desk around 7 pm... No... More

My son and I stayed here as it is close to the best whitewater rafting in the country, and fly fishing, ziplining, and horseback riding; all right there in Big Sky, Montana. It is about 40 minutes to Yellowstone, and so much nicer than the lodging in West Yellowstone. We enjoyed the little town in the meadow of Long Mountain,... More

This hotel delivered in a pinch, but it wasn't anything special, especially for the price. Light continental breakfast is served. Hotel has an outdoor hot tub. Room was roomy, but bedding is worn (top,sheet had visible tear), pillows were blah. We arrived in Big Sky late (damn Siri who told us to hike in the rest of the way!). We'd... More

For an introduction to Big Sky, a resort and residential community built around impressive ski slopes, the River Rock Lodge is well situated (not on a river) within walking distance a variety of restaurants, shops and movie theatre. We think the Montana (western) decor tasteful and rooms large and well equipped. The only issue we have is the beds are... More

My bad, but I thought the River Rock Lodge would be on the river. Knowing the Gallatin River flows near Big Sky I made the assumption we would be staying on the river. That disappointment aside, we were very pleased with this property. The Montana decor is perfect and the staff was quite accommodating re turning on fire places and... More

I agree with the "average" reviews. This is a low-end, but adequate hotel. But, beware: there is negligible shuttle service to the mountain village. The small "Skyline" buses have room for two dozen riders, and service only runs once an hour! (So, late afternoon transport back from the mountain is like winning a lottery; if there's no more room, you... More

Wonderfully comfortable, all the way from the check-in, personnel on staff, and the room itself. Very clean, well-kept property, with easy access to golf, mountainside, or the "center" of Big Sky. Excellent advice given by an number of different people at the front desk area (over a period of four days here). I would have no reservations about heartily recommending... More

I loved this lodge: rooms are very spacious and cozy. The lobby is really nice and the continental breakfast is basic but enough to start the day. The hotel is located next to the Big Sky town that has several stores and restaurants and it's 10-15 minutes away of the Big Sky Resort
