Soda Butte Lodge
Ranked #4 of 6 Hotels in Cooke City
Reviewed July 26, 2012

We stayed 1 night here while we were visiting Yellowstone. Next time, we will just plan to stay there the whole time. We liked the location to our favorite places in the park.

This is not a fancy place and it is definitely older, but it more than met our expectations. It was neat, clean, and tidy. We really liked the whole Cooke City experience!

We ate dinner in the dining room and the food was really great. Everyone was super friendly and we do plan to return and stay again.

My Family and I stopped at the Soda Butte Lodge for lunch after taking the Beartooth Pass. It was 1:30 in the afternoon on a Sunday, and in the restaurant there was only 9 other people. We are a group of 7 and thought we would get quick service. Wrong! We waited over 30 minutes for our food( basic lunch fare), my husbands burger was burnt and cold, my daughters came out 10 minutes after the rest and was burnt, We didn't get refills on sodas, teas. When I paid, the lady at the counter didn't stop talking to her co-worker long enough to do anything then take my card. Worst experience I have ever had. The place must run on tourist $ ONLY . I'm sure the locals eat somewhere eles.

If you are going to stay in Cooke City, I recommend the Soda Butte Lodge. Although a little dated, the rooms are very clean and beds comfy. The restaurant and bar there are a nice convenience and the food was good! The new public restrooms are beautiful. Can't wait to go again...

On our recent stay at Cooke City, our snowmobile group stayed at the Soda Butte Lodge. We were somewhat reluctant due to some of the bad reviews, but because of all the conveniences under one roof, thought we'd try it out anyway. SO glad we did!! The rooms were clean the food and service were wonderful and we even got a discount on all our room charges for staying there. We already made reservations for next year.

We have stayed here before, but this review is just for our most recent visit. We went here with relatives for lunch and enjoyed it very much. The lady waiting on us was very nice and visited with us as it wasn't too busy at lunch time (everyone was out snowmobiling). The food was good and reasonably priced. We sat next to the big windows with the nice views and had a great lunch. Certainly not the newest hotel, but rustic and just how we like it.

Breakfast at the restaurant was good. The bar was nice with a scenic view. The room was old, furniture dirty, lighting was dim, but bed was comfortable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Cooke City is situated in the Beartooth Absaroka mountains. Accessible via Montana Hwy 212 Beartooth Scenic Highway, Chief Joseph Scenic Hwy 296 and Yellowstone National Park. Soda Butte Lodge is located on Main Street in the center of town. Our 32 guest rooms are located on two floors of the motel. We are also, the only full service motel in Cooke City with 3-meal restaurant and sports bar full liquor. The large lobby is a great place to relax, by the fireplace or by the windows to "people watch", play cards, read or visit with friends. We are just 3 1/2 miles from the north east entrance to Yellowstone National Park and the infamous Lamar Valley where "wolf watching" is very popular. The area is ideal for wildlife viewing, horseback riding, fishing, hiking, 4 wheeling and many photo-ops. Winter in Cooke City is unlike no other. Extreme snowmobiling, snowboarding and cross country skiing at its' finest. Winter, the lodge, is only accessible through Yellowstone Park (Mammoth) or drive over Chief Joseph to Pilot Creek parking lot and snowmobile in the last 9 miles. Our area is rich in the things money can't buy: history, beauty, wildlife and hospitality. ... more   less
