  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Bedroom was great, Very clean, great staff, pool is kinda small and hot tub was also small and the whole building it is in is loud and the floor is slanted and slippery, shower floor looks great but was rocky and sharp on my feet.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

When we arrived around 8 PM (check in starts at 4) the room was completely used. Pillows and sheets obviously slept in and bed disheveled. Pizza boxes, beer bottles, trash, etc. We let the front desk know and they said they would take care of it really quick and have it done in about 10-15 mins. During COVID-19... when every other place is doubling down on cleaning processes. I said a “quick” clean makes me uncomfortable with the pandemic going on and they said it’s the only room available but don’t worry they’ll hurry. I said again I am not comfortable with a 15-minute clean and to please take the time needed. In the end they said they replaced the sheets and cleaned but not sure how much can be done in 15 minutes. We still ended up borrowing some cleaner to wipe down all the handles/switches. This review was shared with the hotel management and they said they would refund the resort fee. The actual room was okay, but they are not doing any replacement of linens, cleanings, etc. during this time. You have to go to the front desk to get new towels. In place of their continental breakfast (again, during COVID-19, I suppose), a brown paper bag filled with a juice, orange, and microwaveable frozen burrito. Overall.. really disappointing for such a high price.

The room was great— clean and the accommodated our early arrival. They even still offered a bfast— in a to go sack u pick up in the morning. The room itself was clean and very nice. Its about a 25-30 min drive to West Yellowstone where there are places to eat and shop. There is a gas and lil grocery mart very near hotel. We did not use the pool and hot tub but it was also conveniently located to out hotel building— u will not have to go outside to get to the indoor pool. No house keeping daily due to pandemic but they were quick to bring up towels and extra bedding and garbage bags so we can change out ourselves.

Beautiful cabin with lots of space, great kitchen, good beds, individual hot tub, fireplace. Cheap construction, thin walls but still comfortable. Didn't have things that we thought were standard, like A/C, soap and shampoo, hair dryer. Decent pool, fun swingset. Great location at the north end of Island Park so it's close to West Yellowstone. Store/gas station across the road.
