“Perfect”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2011

This hotel is perfect for the family and I. Although this resort is located at a ski resort, we have been here at all times of the year. We go there for the indoor water park. The rooms/condos are amazing, they are comfortable and reasonable if you have kids that want to spend 8 hours a day at the well designed water park. Just be careful…the restaurants at this resort are TERRIBLE. Noah’s Canteen has to be the biggest waste of money I have ever been to. The rooms have great kitchens, we cooked Thanksgiving dinner here, but decided to go out for dinner the next night~ what a waste of time and money…I would have been happier with a bag of cold McDonalds….So, come for the rooms and the water park, but don’t be fooled by the “restaurants” on the property.

This August, we returned to Silver Mountain for the second time in 6 months. These condos are privately owned and we requested the same unit both times. Locations include village view, courtyard view, and mountain view. The front desk lady who answered our reservation call did a great job finding the unit that would best fit our family. Ours was a pet friendly unit to accommodate our small dog. The fully equipped kitchen was great and the in-suite laundry came in handy with young children. The only drawback was the sofa bed which our kids found very uncomfortable. We had mentioned this the last time we had stayed but nothing had changed.

Of course, with 3 kids, our focus was the waterpark. We absolutely love this waterpark as it is indoors (no need to worry about sunburns), is incredibly clean, and the large number of lifeguards are phenomenal. They are constantly on the move, watching out for anyone who might get in trouble. Very reassuring! While our youngest was content to hang out with Dad in the Lazy River, huge spray park, and kiddie area, our older children spent hours learning to surf on the Flow Rider. The instructor Jim was just amazing. He gave our kids countless tips and encouragement over the 3 days even during his off duty hours! The kids can't wait to go back again and get back on the surf. Another instructor Andrew was also a favourite and even got on the body board with our 3 year old so he could have some of the same fun as his older siblings. What a blast.

We took advantage of the Summer Friday Ride and Dine Gondola special. For $29 an adult (about $21 for kids I think), we got this amazing 20 minute long ride on the gondola to the top of the ski hill. Once up top, there was a bouncy castle, playground, and walking trails. Also included was a yummy supper. Choices included Huckleberry ribs, salmon, and chicken. Entrees came with cornbread and honey butter, mashed potatoes, corn, coleslaw, and a beverage. We ate outside overlooking the mountains and meadows. Absolutely gorgeous.

We took advantage of a couple of other dining options at the Lodge. While at the waterpark, we ordered burgers, wraps, nachos and mini corn dogs from the counter. Food was ok and the prices weren't too outrageous.. We ordered pizza from Wildcat one evening with enough leftovers for lunch the next day. Outside of the hotel, food choices in Kellogg are limited. We grabbed some groceries in town for breakfasts and ended up driving into Coeur d'Alene about half an hour away for dinner one evening.

Would certainly recommend Morning Star Lodge as a fun family getaway.

We were looking for a fun last night on our family driving vacation and remembered seeing an indoor waterpark in Kellogg on our drive thru. Turns out it was a GREAT call!! The Morning Star Lodge at Silver Mountain Resort is pretty new and the condos show it. Our kids said we were in the fanciest, nicest place they had ever stayed (they were close to right.) It was a great condo (rented like a hotel room - appointed like an apartment) with a full kitchen (fairly lightly stocked as far as equipment & gear goes but it had all the basics), a dining table, living room with queen sleeper sofa (the kids "room") and gas fireplace, huge flat-screen tv, large bathroom with double vanity and separate door for the master bed room with a wonderful king bed, a nice patio with dining set and a pair of "coffee drinking" chairs, and a washer & dryer in a closet in the kitchen complete with the detergent!! All appointments seemed very nicely done. With the room, you get access to the indoor waterpark (Silver Rapids) for not only the day you get there and all days of your stay, but also for the day you check out. We packed up, loaded the car and then spent several hours play around in the park before leaving. Small-ish waterpark, but there were no lines, it was warmer water than others we've been to and had lots of things for younger kids (our kids are 11 & 7 and they loved it too!) Biggest drawback was that we had a great kitchen but there is no where on property to buy food. There was an easy fix though, I was directed by the front desk on a 5 minute walk to a local grocery store. Really liked this place and will keep it on the radar for future trips!

Room Tip: Upper floors may have nice mountain views...ground floors have nice big patios & outdoor dining...

We were pleased with our large, modern, well-furnished room on both of our stays at this condo-style hotel. This time our room had a balcony with a mountain view.

This place seems to have the largest and most comfortable rooms for many miles around.

Room rates come with access to an indoor water park--a feature that doesn't interest us.

We had an o.k. dinner at Noah's--the on-site restaurant.

We have stayed at the Morning Star Lodge several times in the past few years. The rates have gone up a little bit each time, but I still believe the resort is a good value. The location is ideal. Each visit we have opted to stay in a one bedroom unit - very spacious and clean, with a nice balcony, gas fire place, and well-equipped kitchen. To keep costs down, we pack our own groceries. The water park is clean and very fun, with activities for all ages. Life guards are attentive but friendly. We found the resort staff to be generally helpful. All in all, a great place for a short holiday.

Room Tip: Check the resort website often for specials.

Have stayed here twice now in the last year. Stayed in one bedroom condos both times. Rooms are great, well layed out and comfortable. Water park is a lot of fun, staff is very nice. Food is very good at Noah's and Wildcat Pizza. Only complaint would be service at Noah's was lacking. Complex is very family friendly, highly recommend the area for a nice time away.

Wow,
I was totally surprised by the service and quality of my room. Always got a front desk person to handle my concerns, such as working the DVD, or lighting questions. My room was fantastic. Very spacious and clean. Next time I will bring my food though.
The choice of resturuants was not very good. The waterpark was much better than I expected. Lots of seating, my kids were never bored. I liked how we got to use the waterpark for two days. Quite a bargain if you ask me. You must go to this place!!!!
It would even be a place my teenager would have liked. Can't wait to go again. I will be a regular for sure.

Room Tip: I liked my one bedroom condo used my AAA card.
