“Greatest Place Yet”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

I am a travel agent and took a bus of 51 to spend the night at the Elk View Inn. I will have to say this was the best stay of the 14 day trip. When we arrived, the staff was waiting to grab our luggage and take it to the rooms. We had asked for a meal for our group. It was waiting for us and was the best meal of the whole trip. All of the staff was eager to wait on us and made sure our needs were met. We do this trip every other year. Elkview Inn will definitely be in our plans for 2015. We hope to be able to spend 2 nights there at this time

Mary,

Thanks for the review. Yours is the first overnight bus I got to deal with as the new manager and it was a pleasure. The bar is set high for all the others.

Your people were fun to deal with. I'm glad it all went well and it was a great stay for all of them. We look forward to 2015 and your next visit.

My wife and I went to the Elk View Inn a couple weekends ago for a friends wedding. We stayed in one of their rooms which was nicely appointed and very clean. We also went down to the lounge for the wedding reception and found it to be very nice and the food to be excellent. The bed was comfortable that night and the next morning we went and had a tasty breakfast before leaving. Our overall experience here was great.

Good Morning and thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure working with and serving the family and guests for the wedding you mentioned. We have many weddings a year in the area. We do have great chefs here and it shows in their presentations and care they take in preparing the food. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and feel free to come stay with us again, even if it's not associated with a wedding.

We had a great experience at EVI, all the employees were so nice and friendly from George in the kitchen to Monica and Isaic in the lounge, and Manager Corey will do whatever he can to accomodate guests. The area has beautiful views of the Big Horn Mountains and the atmosphere in the lodge is very appealing, I would definately recommend EVI to any visitor to the area, our experience could not have been better, Thank you to all the great staff of EVI,
Sincerely

Thank you for your review. It was very nice and I have passed on the information to the people you mentioned. Here at EVI we try to be relaxed and comfortable right away with our visitors and guests. Many folks visiting are on vacation and not in a big hurry so we are able to talk with them while still serving their needs. You are not just a number to us. The mountains are a beautiful place to see. Renting an ATV from us allows you to see even more of this beautiful area up close and personal. After a year on the mountain I still am amazed at the views. Come see us again.

Had a great time at Elk View Inn. The rooms are lovely and spacious and the employees helpful and friendly. The chef was fantastic, everything we had was delicious, from the breakfast buffet to the vermicelli and incredible macaroni and cheese. The bar staff were great and fun to interact with. We'll definitely come again.
Thanks!!

Thank you for taking time to write a review on our place. Our rooms are larger than most and whether it's the King bed room or the Queen pillow top rooms with two beds in them, there is still room to move around. For those who still need some entertainment while on vacation we have Direct TV in each of the rooms. Our staff, from the Bar to the Kitchen, do try and make each guests stay a pleasant one and it shows. If there ever is a problem you would only have to say something and we'll try and fix it right away. We look forward to your next stay. Thank You.

I just stayed at the Elk View Inn last night and it was an awesome experience. The staff is super helpful and the inn is warm and inviting. We had dinner and breakfast at the inn and the food was wonderful. The staff just went above and beyond our expectations. We WILL be staying here again and would recommend it to others looking for a neat mountain retreat.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you had an Awesome Experience with us and we look forward to your next visit. We try hard to make sure everyone has a great time here and if something were to ever go wrong all you would have to do is say something and we'll sort it out for you. We do have good food/menu's. The kitchen and servers try very hard to make sure each meal is prepared and served the way our guests and visitor's want it. If it's not served right, we'll make it right. Thank you again and we'll see you next time.

I stayed in their largest cabin on 2-23-2013 with my family and another family during a smowmobile/sledding trip. This was by far the worst place I have ever stayed. This cabin cost us $265 and this is what we got:

Smelly hot tub and cold pool, disabled smoke alarm in bedroom, dirty kitchen, curly hairs in the shower, no coffee, bedroom heaters not working, cabin heater would not regulate properly and the living room got up to 94 deg at night, garbage under the beds, and to top it off we found a dried up pile of vomit from a previous renter on the carpet next to one of the beds.

This place was horrible. I do not recomend it to any one. We complained to the manager at Bear Lodge (they own both lodges) and he tried to make excuses for everything instead of admitting they screwed up. They knocked $100 off the room and we still payed $165 too much! The fact is they have a captive audience up there and they don't give a rip about service, health, or safety.

Room Tip: Find someplace else to stay.

Good Morning and thank you for your honest and straight forward review. I'm sorry it was not the experience you wanted. My name is Corey and I am the new on site manager. I was not here at the time of your stay but am sorry for what you encountered. To correct some of these problems we do a daily walk thru of cleaned or refreshed rooms with hotel cleaning staff, daily testings of the pool and hot tub are being done to ensure proper ph balance, we replaced the old thermostat in the cabin with a new one and so far it seems to be working just fine and smoke alarms are tested monthly to ensure they work. If those items were not identified at check in so that they could be corrected right away, I'm sorry. Any guest checking in has the right to a clean room and if it's not, we have the duty to correct it right away.

Having an on site manager will help with any problems like this in the future and if you want to give us another try, just call and ask for me.

We stayed there in July of 2010 and were very happy with everything. So we went back in August of 2012 and were very disappointed. We were staying for a week and our room did not get serviced for four days. We had to go ask for towels when we came back from riding. There were not any towels in the pool area ever. There excuse was always that they only had one maid. That should not be our problem. The king rooms have split king beds which are very uncomfortable. We asked to switch rooms and the gal at the desk was very very rude. The restaurant was not open until 5 days into our stay. They acted like we were a thorn in their side. Instead of paying guests. I e-mailed the owners when we got home and told them our concerns and did not even receive a response. That shows me that they don't care either. We would like to go riding there again, but will not stay there. Its a shame, it could be a pretty nice place.

Room Tip: Do not take a king room. The beds are split king and very uncomfortable
