First of all, after turning the TV on I found there were only about 15 or so channels. I haven't been in a hotel room in the last 15 years that did not have cable with dozens of channels. Seriously? And they were channels that were not interesting. Also, many channels had bad reception, one didn't have sound and there... More

The place offers a reasonable priced Big-Sky-affiliated lodging in the midst of the higher-priced Big Sky Lodging closer to the slopes. In-room phone service never worked. Dry cereal for breakfast was all kiddie-stuff--sugar frosted flakes, Fruit Loops, stuff like that, but otherwise OK. Staff was friendly and helpful. Parking lot was an icy mess--other winter motels are able to plow... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of September for $89/night, 4 people in 2 queen beds. As a base for Yellowstone visits it's not ideal (~40 min. to west entrance), but the price was right. Cleanliness and general condition of the room were fine, and the free breakfast and fast wireless internet were much appreciated. A nice... More

We paid $87/nt. And for that price,it was well worth it!the 2 queen beds were very comfortable. Breakfast selection was very decent,staff was very helpful. there is a coin laundry insite.Would definitely recommend this place. Its roughly a 45 minute drive to West Yellowstone towne centre. And maybe an hour and a half away from the Yellowstone National park itself.

Our room was dusty, had dead flies on the floor in the bathroom, had old food on the floors around the furniture. The coffee pot filter had mold growing in it. The indoor pool was cold and the water slide was not working. On a more positive note, the hot tub was great, the kids enjoyed the breakfast. The staff... More

We would not stay at this property again. We arrived late (11:30 p.m.) and with no elevator had to haul our luggage (3 bags) plus other items down a flight of stairs. The night clerk did assist but this person was new and uncertain about how to use the computer so could not tell us for sure whether or not... More

Wife described Whitewater Inn as the "best" on a trip that included 6 different lodging experiences, all of which where excellent - and I agree with her opinion. The arrangements were made thru Big Sky Reservations taking advantage of a promotional rate that proved to be a great value. Traveling with 2 other adults and their 2 1/2 year old... More

After a long road trip, we pulled into the Whitewater Inn, just N of Yellowstone. Our reservation was made weeks earlier, no problems, we were already completely in the system. Mgr. Tommy Robinson was very helpful in coordinating a very comfortable room for us, along with the heads-up on the local dining...later he assisted us with a comprehensive approach to... More

we stayed here two nights on the way in and then on the way out of Yellowstone. Since we had our three grandchildren the pool with the big slide was a real hit after a day in the car. The beds were very comfortable with nice quality bedding. Facilities were clean. I locked my keys in the car and fortunately... More
