My husband and I stayed at the Sioux Lodge on the first and last days of our five day Yellowstone/Grand Teton/Jackson vacation. We got an excellent price through the AAA travel site which included our studio suite with woodburning fireplace, breakfast, and dinner. Just about the only people there were from a group of elderhostel travelers, so it was really quiet.
The desk clerks were helpful and friendly. There would have been a problem if they had been out of firewood, because we really only paid the extra over their motel-style units to get the fireplace, and the desk clerk told us they did not replenish the firewood during the summer/fall months. Fortunately, there was enough for us. There was only one restaurant available, but the food was tasty and nicely served. The grounds were spectacular, though it was a bit disappointing none of the shops were open. The pool and hot tub were clean, a welcoming temperature, and empty except for us!
We appreciated free use of the guest computer with Internet access and printer to print our Southwest boarding passes the morning of our departure.
I've read the comments others have written about the carpeting, but from my experience real ski resorts with real fireplaces and real skis and boots clumping around take a bit of a beating-it isn't a metro Hilton.
