Although there wasn't much open this time of year in Stanley, we certainly made the right choice. Small Inn with lots of personal touches. I loved both the front and back porches with tables and chairs which allowed for 2 totally different mountain views. Well equipped kitchenette. Good size room, Comfy bed with lots of pillows and extremely clean and...

Valley Creek Lodge is very laid back, cozy and comfortable. The view is incredible. The kitchenette offers everything needed for small meals. The beds are very comfortable. The towels are big and fluffy, I loved the front and back porch. The owners are very welcoming. I truly give this hotel a 4.5 rating. The reason I didn't give this a...

Glad the you enjoyed your stay. Sorry that the outside light bothered you at night. We leave the lights on until about 10:30 PM to welcome our guests and provide good lighting for them to find their rooms. We could not have individual rooms turning off the general area lighting in front of their rooms as it would affect lighting...

My family's stay at this quaint little lodge truly was great! The owners are the most welcoming and kindest we've experienced. You can tell they take care of their establishment by the cleanliness and comfort of their rooms. Their outdoor seating was my favorite enjoyment as well as my kids. We will be back!

Ran by caring folks who genuinely worried about our well being when we departed to go backpacking and got caught in a bad storm, knowledgeable about the area, and ran a tight ship (albeit with low overhead). Rooms have kitchenettes and outdoor tables and chairs on back and front porches, and enough room inside to prep/pack for a backpacking or...

After 3 days of backpacking, my husband, daughter and I stayed at Valley Creek Lodge. The owners are very friendly, our room was very clean, the beds were comfortable and the lodge was quiet. We enjoyed our stay and plan to stay there again.

The couple who runs this place is very friendly. The accommodations are comfortable and pleasant. Each unit has a front porch and back balcony. It's got a nice kitchenette, most everything you'll need. Plus, there are gas grills for the customers' use. Also, there is wifi. I would go back and stay at the same place for sure.

Just returned from Stanley where we spent our last night at Valley Creek Lodge. We had a great stay in a room that was as clean as any Hilton or Marriot property.

It is with a heavy heart that I write this review because we have truly enjoyed our stays here. Every compliment that has been received on this website is correct. The rooms are well-appointed, very clean, within walking distance from downtown Stanley. There are picnic tables, grills for use by the patrons. Great view of the Sawtooths. The proprietors offer...

We welcomed this family group from the start. I even went to the local laundry to check that the couple that arrived on a motorcycle found the place to do their laundry. Aside from allowing a couple of children in their upstairs rooms to jump on the beds like trampolines for 30 minutes or more, they were a good group...

I've stayed with Herb and Victoria for 7 out of the last 8 years, this place is great, right in the middle of Stanley, Idaho.

Beautiful views of the Sawtooth Mountains. Clean rooms. Comfortable beds. Owner is a stickler for not allowing friends to visit, share a meal using the grills, or tables and chairs. He could have been much more accommodating. Owner's wife (Co-owner perhaps) was quite pleasant when making up the rooms and arranged the children's toys on the beds. Very cute.
