Stayed four nights in Big Sky. Great location and very friendly staff. Rooms were clean, maybe a little out-dated, but comfortable, and the property was convenient to everything we needed in Big Sky. Basic breakfast was provided, but would have appreciated something warm (besides oatmeal), especially when you're hitting the slopes all day. This is a small-ish property, so don't... More

Our family loved our week at this hotel. It was a busy holiday-skiing season and the hotel was full but it never felt crowded. In the meadows area, it's a short walk to several good eateries, a movie theater, and ski rentals, and an easy drive up the mountain to ski. One can curl up by the massive stone fireplace... More

Nice clean place, about a 10 min drive to Big Sky resort (in Westfork near shops/restaurants). Free parking, small hot tub, free wifi a bit dodgy. Comfortable rooms with fridge, no microwave, small standard bathtub, small coffeemaker - but noisy, and details like tatty old Kleenex box covers, etc need upgrading. Continental breakfast with convenience store type muffins, bagels, yogurt,... More

Rooms are clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. Staff is helpful and friendly. They have an outdoor hot tub that was wonderful after a day on the slopes to warm up and loosen up sore muscles. They offered a free breakfast that consisted of good coffee, multiple types of teas, orange and apple juice (fresh, not from a machine), hot cocoa,... More

Stayed here recently for a visit to Yellowstone NP and surrounding areas. Front desk staff was always friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included- basic continental but acceptable. Wifi included as well, but connection was hit and miss. Room appeared a little tired in terms of decor and upkeep with bathroom and shower the most in need of update. The biggest... More

We rented a large block of rooms because of a family wedding in the area. We were highly satisfied with our stay! This is the perfect Big Sky lodging choice if you prefer to stay in the meadows rather than at the ski area. The lodge is within walking distance to several restaurants and bars. The staff is extremely helpful... More

We stayed for a week in September and it was the perfect home base for fishing the local rivers and visiting Yellowstone national park. It is about a 45 minute drive to and from the park but it is a great scenic drive and was not a problem. The room was great, we had the vista suite, with a fireplace... More

Juste a motel with bedroom on first floor with parking like meadows! Horrible I dislike. Just the hall is beautiful with Woods and false animals. The bathroom is basic and we hear the road. The rate is 200 dollars Juste un motel basic en fait Ave. Une entrée pour présenter de jolies photos sur internet

This was a comfortable, average stay at an average lodge, until the hotel management abruptly ended our stay without warning or notice. Upon checkin, we were clear with the hotel management that we would like to stay for 4 nights, but wouldn't know about the extra two nights until the evening of the second night. They were very happy to... More
