We booked this place due to its proximity to Yellowstone, only 25 min to the west entrance, and the low cost. We were expecting something much less than what we got. SMR is wonderful, the quick check in and cert friendly staff. We had a slight issue with the tv in our room. A call to the front desk and...

This cute, quaint hotel is every snowmobilers dream! clean, cheap, friendly staff and beautiful views! If you are expecting luxury you are out of luck! However, if you want to ride your snowmobile up to your room door this is the place!

We have stayed here a couple of times when visiting my friends. It can fill up particularly in the winter, as a lot of snowmobiling takes place from here. The rooms are basic to say the least. The walls are fairly thin. But it provides a bed to sleep in and is reasonably priced for the family. You will definitely...

If you are visiting West Yellowstone but do not want to pay the exorbitant hotel charges, Sawtelle resort at Island Park is a very good option. It costs a fraction of the West Yellowstone hotels ($110 for a night in a queen bed room in June), is 30 mins away from the west entrance of the park on US 20...

Because of the absurdly high cost of staying in or near Yellowstone, we stayed at the Sawtelle Resort for a fraction of the price. Good service and an ok room. I was very happy with the price, but the room had a few issues. . . The toilet was very weak, the girlfriend had a cold shower (I did not),...

We were given spot #19. We were told it was the only place available and there were no pull through spots. We drove through the campsite and saw several empty RV sites. Their advertising included a pool, and wifi. Neither of these was available in our assigned spot. The utilities were located in such a poor place that we had...

Room smells old and dirty. Staff seems not willing to help, she refused request without even checking the availability. Pictures shown on the booking engines are corners of the room, doesn't reflect the view of the entire room. Yes, it is cheaper than places closer to Yellowstone, but you don't want to ruin your mood for your travel!! Plus it's...

The resort told us they had rooms available..upon arrival we were told there were no more rooms available. Soooooo...it was raining outside and we were pretty much outta luck. There were rooms available in West Yellowstone, but we weren't looking to pay $250 for one night in a 2 star hotel. So, we camped in the Sawtelle campgrounds. It really...
