I generally like funky and Soda Butte Lodge had a funky architectural style that sat perfectly between the road and the Soda Butte Creek. But that is where funky ended and rundown began. Old, cheap mismatched furnishings filled the place. BUT, the worst was the pervasive smell! A sickly sweet over old dirt and i-don't-want-to-think-about-it is the only way to... More

We stopped for lunch, having driven up the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway from Cody WY. Hamburgers and sandwiches excellent and the owners could not have been friendlier or more helpful. We didn't stay overnight but the place looks clean and well run.

We stayed here and our room wasn't very nice. Our room at first had the heat stuck on and we had to sleep with the window and door open all night to try to cool down. They came and fixed heat, now it didn't work at all. So rest of trip we had no heat. It was nice that we... More

The biggest draw to this place is the staff. They are always helpful and friendly. It has a fun bar for the nights, and a good restaurant. The rooms are not the ritz carlton, but the location can't be beat and offsets that.

We booked this hotel last minute and initially were thankful we had a place to sleep. Tried to get appetizers in the bar, but they were swamped and our food never arrived. Kudos to the bartender, believe his name was Dan, not his fault, they simply needed a couple more people working, he was very apologetic. Room was adequate, no... More

We only spent one night at Soda Butte Lodge because our vacation lodging was in Teton Village over 200 miles away from Bear Tooth Pass which was our destination that day. The room was clean. The king mattress and box springs appeared new. A second chair would have been nice. The bathroom was clean, but the toilet plugged up. I... More

We were there during the Labor Day weekend and we found the management as well as the employees to be friendly, kind, considerate and helpful at every turn. I would give the Soda Butte Lodge a very high rating. The food in the restaurant was tasty and reasonably priced. The lounge was beautiful in its setting and the service was... More

First things first: the reviews that have said this place is, shall we say, an "older property" are right on the mark. The double room we had was on the small side; the door didn't provide an airtight sea (although it did close fully)l; and, the deadbolt didn't even lock. Others have complained about noise from the bar, but we... More

The good: less expensive then other places in the park or out of the park in this area such as Gardiner or mammoth. room was clean. Staff most friendly. The ok: noise, didn't bother me, but both traffic noise and noise from rooms around us kept my wife up most most of the night. Food, not much special here. Chicken... More
