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... More

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. Keep in mind this is not a Hilton but the rooms are clean and comfortable. I like that this place and this hotel changes little from year to year; for example, new carpet this year... More

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.

If you are looking for a place in Stanley, you will not go wrong with the Valley Creek Lodge. The rooms are very clean, spacious and have an incredible view of the Sawtooths.

Stanley was our second stop on our tour of North West USA. This park was very basic and had only minimum number of parking bays for RVs. As we had booked it early we could get one. They have no public showers or free WiFi. Maybe they are concentrating on the rooms and cabins than the RV customers.

We have had free WiFi since 2004 for both our RV and Lodge guests. A lighted LED sign above the office door advises everyone who walks in that we have free high speed (10 meg) internet access. It is a shame that the reviewer didn't realize that they had access to free WiFi, nor did they ask. We concentrate on... More

Clean, well-maintained motel. But $125 per night for a Mom and Pop motel? No breakfast, no coffee, thin walls. Stanley seemed to me to be a scruffy town with scruffy restaurants and expensive lodging. Beautiful scenery, but maybe better to bring your own food and tent and camp in this area.

This place exceeded my expectations. There is a nice front and back porch for each room. Outside, I found wooden chairs and a picnic table set up by the river for maximum chillaxing. I was able to sit outside on a beautiful summer evening and enjoy the full moon in complete peace. How often can you say that? The room... More
