Should have run the other way

Posted Aug 5, 2015
Pros: Nothing!!!!
Cons: Everything!!!!
Location: Location was great! Ate pizza at Red Lodge Pizza Co. - excellent!!! Rode the Harley through Beartooth Pass - what a ride!
Should have run the other way when told, "Your room is in the back at the 3rd stairwell." Yes, rooms underneath the main hotel. We descended the stairs to our $98.90 room, walked in and were greeted with a faint skunkie odor. Upon inspection, I discovered the comforter on one of the beds had rust colored stains all over it but figured it was just that, rust colored stains. When I picked the comforter up off the floor the next morning, I discovered where the odor must have come from. The very pronounced stench of cat urine permeated the air! I noticed the comforters were what appeared to be down so have probably never been cleaned. The tv was about a 15" old model that weighs a ton with a remote that didn't work - the batteries were corroded. The window looked out to a window well and had a fan in it and so was open to whatever came into the window well. The drapes had holes in them. The bathroom was a step-up from the room. I wouldn't take a shower in there if I had been paid to! There was a locked door with a "Private" sign posted on it inside our room. On the dresser was an envelope asking us to tip the housekeeper! There was mold in the shower door track and around the glass doors. Disgusting!!!! Would have asked for a refund but knew the whole town was booked and we'd be sleeping in the street, which may have been an improvement.

Room located down very narrow hall in basement.

Posted Aug 16, 2014
Check in was easy. However one level of rooms is located below ground level which made it difficult to find. The outside entry to my room was shared with one other room. The hallway was extremely narrow and dark. The only amenities were a hot tub located outside and a ski wax room.

Independent ownership!

Posted Aug 14, 2014
We stayed in the lower level in Aug. the ventilation came up a bit short for 4 showers. Other than that, the quaint old place was a great brake from cookie cutter corporate hotel/motels! If we ever get a room in Red Lodge, it's on the approved list.

Basic Accomodation

Posted Aug 4, 2014
Cons: The hotel is a bit old and could do with a make over.
Location: It is a short walk to town which has nice shops and restaurants.Red Lodge is lovely small town.
My wife and I stayed here for one night the room was o.k apart from a slight musty smell,and our room was a bit below ground level with the window looking out onto the main street. The room was clean and comfortable and was fine for the one night. The lady at reception was friendly and helpful.

Good place to stay

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Price and front counter staff...overall appearance.
Cons: newer technology in rooms
Location: go to ski resort, stroll the main drag, drink eat and be merry.
this place is on the south end of town and has been there forever. It's a good place to stay with unique charm, helpful front counter staff, great dining options near by and a good price. It looks like the rooms haven't been updated in a while but that did not detract from my stay and i found the steam showers to be quite unique.

A great find on a budget

Posted Jun 30, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness and comfort. Helpful staff and on-site owner.
Cons: New TV's would be about my only recommendation, but even that's probably being picky.
Location: It's a short walk to numerous restaurants and shops, but just far enough away from the crowds for a quiet night of sleep.
Nothing fancy. A nice room, extremely clean and comfortable. Great staff (including ownership). I'll be making this trip again, and I won't look for a room anywhere else. It's great value for the money.

Nice Stay

Posted Jun 27, 2014
Pros: Clean rooms, accommodating, friendly staff
Cons: Only a window fan for cooling, our trip was mid June so the nights were cool but I could see where an air conditioner would be better in the summer.
Location: Great hiking trails and nice ride through the Bear Tooth Pass along with Chief Joseph Scenic route!
We were arriving late and they were very accommodating about leaving the key in a lock box. The room was clean and the building used to be apts. for the minors, so a cool little piece of history. The owners were very friendly and so was the desk helper. We were given good info about hiking trails in the area by both. Make it a point to have breakfast at Prindy's which is just up the road. Delicious meals! We ate there both mornings. Will definitely go back!

The most charming motel in town: a vintage treat!

Posted May 29, 2014
Pros: We like to stay in interesting, distinctive places that aren't generic and that are walking distance to the center of town. The Yodeler? YES.
Cons: Be sure you know the downstairs rooms have fairly small windows and have a view partially blocked by the porch above. The upstairs rooms are bigger.
Location: We love the Red Lodge brew pub a mile north, the great restaurants just a few blocks away downtown, and rushing Rock Creek just a block away.
The Yodeler is charming looking, and the staff is genuinely friendly. You can tell the staff and the owners, who live in town, all take pride in the stylish/Alpine look of the place, and they keep it in great condition. We stayed in one of the smallest rooms in the semi-subterranean downstairs, yet it was wonderfully kept and cozy, with a nicely arranged bathroom with quality linens, thick towels, and a steam shower. We got a super friendly welcome in the mid-century style lobby. The Lupine Inn, just a block from the Yodeler, is totally generic, by comparison, and good if you want an indoor pool, but otherwise, skip it. We've stayed other places in town, and only the historic Pollard Hotel a few blocks down Broadway can compete with the Yodeler for a memorable place to stay.

Great value

Posted Apr 2, 2014
Pros: It was quite, clean & comfortable!
Cons: We had hand towels for bath towels the first morning.
Location: Close to down town, so it was convenient to walk to dinner. Close to the ski mountain.
The room was very clean and affordable! Staff was super friendly and helpful. Perfect for our quick ski trip!
