This is a very old out dated lodge/cabins. I normally look at the rooms before I book it but didn’t on this because the exterior looked very neat and clean. While checking in, the gentleman was very distracted by trying to keep his 5 dogs inside the office area. Once we got into the motel room it smelled musty, the carpet was dirty, hair in the shower, old dirty chairs and old yellow lamps. We could here every movement from the room upstairs. On the positive note the bed was comfortable and the water pressure was good.

Christian (sp?) was more than welcoming on out 1 night impromptu stay with our Labrador. Room was spotless and we got a good night’s rest. It was not right in town, but very close to the cafes and restaurants in South Fork.

What a great place! Conveniently located. Campground fit our 43’ toy hauler nicely. Easy access to OHV trails and some awesome riding and site seeing. Host gave us a map of the trails and suggested sites to see. We loved our experience here and will definitely stay here again! Pet friendly for our 2 dogs as well!

New beds were good, water was ice cold which was great at 85 degrees out. Shower was great with plenty of hot water. We sat outside when it finally cooled off and a gentleman who was helping maintain the lodge started watering the hanging plant right above us—- so before we got soaked we had to leave our sitting spot!!

Our stay has been good, however we were very disappointed when we asked for extra bath towels, and the manager told us NO! He told us to use the towels and hang them up and use them again in the morning. It would be ok if the towels dried overnight but the brochure in the room says to please let them know if we need anything and it also says that additional supplies, including bath linens are available from the office. So showering at night after a long day of fishing and other outdoor activities, to get the sunscreen and bug spray off is not an option if you want to have a dry towel for your morning shower. I guess they figure it’s better to have the bed linens soiled from all that stuff than to just give you more bath towels.

Response from Ute_Bluff_Lodge, Owner at Ute Bluff Lodge, Cabins & RV Park
Responded Jul 7, 2019
Shelly, We supply 4 towels with each room you paid for 2 persons so the towels should be enough if you have additional people in your room then you should have told us and it says on or webpage and brochure that there is an additional $10 per person and night. Also here in the mountains we try to saver on water, if you use soap the towels are not dirty and can be used again that way we save our environment. Back home I am sure you only use your towels only once.

Once again. Too tired to make it home and this place did not disappoint . Super friendly owner. In room 27 double queen firm memory foam beds. Super clean. No ac but the fan was great. Soaked in the hot tub. Room has microwave, fridge and coffeemaker. Still road noise so bring earplugs. Getting ready for serious zzz's.

This place was literally the shelter from the storm! After being turned around at the pass we got the only room left in South Fork and we were so lucky it was this spot! In our room they had already hooked up Hulu,Netflix and a few other services I can't recall.The quality reception kept us relaxed and connected as the blizzard raged outside. Super warm, soft beds with no sh*** springs gave me the best sleep of my entire road trip. The bathroom was clean the show curtain was a quaint image with deer on it...awwww! In the morning the owner got out his little snow plow and worked to help each one of his guests get out of their snow holes. The parking is flat and wide so its easy to navigate even without 4WD. I would totally stay here again
