I am rating this hotel based on hotels in other small towns and not based on hotels you would see in big cities because that would not be a fair comparison. In comparison to other small town hotels we have stayed at, I would give this hotel a rating of 4.5. Our room was large and very clean (which is very important given the pandemic). The bath towels were oversized, which was nice to have. The owners were very nice and helpful in terms of giving us good information about places to eat (or avoid) and information about places to see in the area. We also had no problems with the WiFi connection. I only have two minor complaints: (1) the TV monitor was very small; it was hard to see laying at the head of the bed; and (2) the hotel does not have an ice machine (although you can get ice at the gas station across the street). I would definitely stay at this hotel if I am in this area again and would recommend staying at this hotel if you are staying in Cooke City.

Thanks for taking the time to give us a review! We are delighted you found your room clean and had a nice stay. Thanks for the 4.5 rating!!! Also thanks for mentioning the WIFI connection because that is important in a town with no cell service. If you come back again you will see bigger monitors as we are purchasing them this break. We do offer ice for drinks not coolers, you just need to come into the office and get it. If you're in the area again we hope to see you! Thanks, Lisa and Jeff

Thank you to Jeff and Lisa for having such great customer service. We made reservations and was hoping for one of the cabins. They weren’t available but Jeff made a note that if one opens to let us know. About three weeks before our trip Jeff called to say a cabin was available, we took it. We also added an extra night to our stay. All the rooms are very spacious and extremely clean. The cabin gave us a little more more and a kitchen. We have now stayed here three times and can’t wait to come back. If looking at staying in Cooke City please know cell service is nonexistent and internet is slow. That’s just the way it is out there. Also many of the facilities only take cash. But the good news is many also offer a discount when using cash. Cooke City puts you into the park in about 10 minutes. Also the perfect place to stay if Lamar Valley is the place you like to play in. It is also located at the base of the Beartooth Highway. If you need any help Lisa or Jeff will be glad to help you.

Spent 3 nights at this lodge, room #7, big room, super clean, beds very comfortable, nice size bathroom, small kitchen area was a plus, small flat screen tv with direct tv, Great parking, and located in the middle of town. We would stay there again if in the area, folks that own it and run the lodge are super friendly. Highly recommend this lodge while in Cooke City!

Me and my two boys bumped into this place as we journeyed along the Beartooth highway. We thought we might stay here for a night and ended up liking it so much we stayed for 3 days. The staff are excellent and the rooms are clean and comfortable.We enjoyed eating at some of the restaurants in town and loved going over to the saloon at night. It was really nice sitting on the porch in the evenings with the table and chairs set out. If I ever return to cook City in the future I will certainly be staying here.

Came here for one night and a guy named Jeff was super helpful! This place is super super clean and has pretty good views of Cooke City and the surrounding mountains. I wanted to stay here when I got out of the wilderness but they were booked. I would highly recommend family or friends or anyone coming to Cooke City to stay here.
