I found this place doing a search on the Internet. It was a one night stay on our way to Yellowstone. It is an older hotel that has had several additions (you can tell by the bumps in the halls and change of materials.) The room was clean and comfortable. When staying overnight that is all I look for. The... More

The Sunburst Inn refurbished and brought completely up to date. Outdoor pool, a rarity nowadays. Spacious room, extremely clean. Great staff, suggested a fun place for dinner and immediately adjusted the router when I told them I couldn't log on to the wi-fi...maybe the people who complained about this in their reviews never let the desk know. Will definitely come... More

Rooms were big, clean, & inviting. Check-in staff was extremely friendly and helpful (giving directions, suggesting picnic spots, recommending restaurants). Breakfast was standard motel; hot food (biscuits & gravy, waffles). Good Wi-Fi connection. Elevator to the second floor.
