This is a great location, good for kids, close to the Madison river and public fishing access areas. the city park is right down the street and has a trout pond for kids to fish. The rooms were clean, knotty pine charm, the bed was OK, room was clean, no AC so hot nights might be a little warm if...

If you are passing through Ennis, stay with Ed and Genie at the rainbow valley lodge. My family comes twice a year and we always have a clean and comfortable rooms. It is a great environment with coffee, juice, and donuts in the morning. I will always stay here when I am in Ennis!

Charming couple have owned this place for over 25 years. Many of the clients appear to be repeaters. He runs a fly fishing business from the large motel office. He was very helpful about directing us to some out of the way spots for photography and scenery. They also directed us to nearby restaurants for dinner.

Rooms are comfortable, affordable and homey with free WiFi. Ed makes coffee early for the continental breakfast, which sports homemade pastries from time to time. Access...

Stayed for just one night - wish it could have been more! Arranged for a surprise guided fishing trip for my son through the Lodge and he had the time of his life. The rooms are spacious, and the continental breakfast was delicious. Will no doubt return.

If you've stayed in places that try to return to the glory of yesteryear but fall short, then you haven't stayed here. The Rainbow Valley Lodge is a perfect pride of ownership example. The property has the character of a 50's style road side motel of the west. Log siding, knotty pine panels on all the walls and ceilings but...
