The room was nice, very clean, and has a small fridge and microwave. Note that they do not have any breakfast at all, just coffee or tea in the lobby. We used the hot tub which was also very clean and they have plenty of towels available in the hot tub room. It's a short walk into the middle of... More

The Bighorn has comfortable beds and quiet rooms (with the windows closed). If you are looking someplace that is comfortable, clean, free internet, and you plan day trips around the area, the Bighorn is fine. Shops and restaurants are right down the street There isn't any room though for much lounging outside of the room. Always call before booking -... More

We stayed here as a last minute stop before our journey home so we could visit the park. Hotel fairly clean though dated. The clerk/ manager was not very friendly. Parking is very limited and tight. Was close to downtown stores and restaurants.

We were able to get a room here at the last minute after pulling into town late in the afternoon. We liked the location as it is easy walking distance to the center of town and there's a soft ice cream shop right next door! The room was very clean and seemed to have been recently remodeled. One thing that... More

We booked and stayed here for the holiday weekend. They couldn't have been more helpful because we needed to change our reservation by one night. Room was big. Beds were alright. The nice thing is you can walk to downtown and to the lake if you want. We liked that a lot because traffic was terrible in town.

Decided to go to GL at the last minute so booked a room at the Bighorn Lodge. Granted, it is not a lodge, it is a motel, but it is clean, comfortable and staff is very friendly! If you don't have to have a view of the lake, and want to save some $$ for shopping, this may be the... More

Parking is VERY limited. After dinner we had to park off site even the two spots in front of the office were taken. However, someone had a boat in one of the parking spots. This should not be allowed. There should also be a limit of one parking spot per unit because there were more cars than people. The spaces... More
