Previous reviews shared info about the rooms and linens needing updated. They also talked about the breakfast and the lack of choices. Both of these seem to be fixed! The rooms were equipped with new linens and towels. The breakfast has several choices of cold and hot cereal, bagels, 4 choices for hot food and a juice station.
During our stay it started off rough due to our reservations not being correct. We had 2 rooms paid for but only 1 room was in their "system". The gentleman at the desk never hesitated and apologized and got our 2nd room in a flash. The first morning at breakfast was a disaster. The dinnerware was empty, juices were empty, hot foods were empty and all the tables were very dirty with food stuff. There was an employee who was still in her coat trying to get things restocked, and it looked like maybe she had been called in to work. The second morning things were much better, plenty of utensils and food and it was clean.
We had been traveling and needed to use the laundry facilities but the desk did not have any change until later in the day.
Overall, we really enjoyed the stay and the views were spectacular!

I was expecting something akin to a Holiday Inn--given the price. Boy, was I surprised.

This was my first time in Big Sky and so I did some research and selected a place to stay as best I could. I really lucked out.

The front staff was wonderful. They were very friendly and super-helpful. They had a pool, hottub, hot breakfast, wi-fi. They did not have any single rooms left---so I ended up with a two-queen room. But the price was still only about $110 a night. The room itself was lovely, and probably the largest I've ever stayed in. It was really great.

The view from the windows in my particular room was just of some grass on a little hill. But that doesn't really matter--I can go right outside and see all the surrounding mountains. The front desk answered all my questions about the area--and told me how to get to the local convenience store and such.

I would love to stay here again. It snowed while I was there. In June! I have missed snow so much (lived in California for 3.5 years). When I saw it, I threw my shoes on and ran outside to look.

This place was a definite win. Beautiful location, beautiful rooms, excellent value for price, skiing and ziplining. I wish I'd had more time (and that I hadn't wrenched my knee at Glacier so that I could have done more).

Thanks for a great stay, guys. :D

Room Tip: I stayed in 106--which is below the main floor on the backside of the lodge---not much of a view fro...

This is a beautiful lodge with a gorgeous setting in the mountains, and the perfect place for a honeymooning couple visiting Yellowstone (as it was for us)! The room was huge and was equipped with everything we needed, I liked also as it is equipped with wooden furniture that gives special charm to the place. The bathroom was spotless and spacious. The cosmetics they provide is a good quality, loved the smell of the soaps. Hair dryer is very powerful (I pay attention to that). The staff were very friendly and attentive. We loved sitting in the spacious lounge with comfy sofas, fire place and amazing view to the mountains. Breakfast is very good and includes hot items. During the breakfast the staff were doing great job there: adding all the missing items in seconds and controlling clearness of the place and tables. We really enjoyed our stay, and highly recommend this wonderful hotel!

It was a small drive to and from the town center/highway, but we enjoyed being close to the ski resort area where we could see the mountains up close. The breakfast had a beautiful view and comfortable furniture with board games to play in the evening. We also walked over to the resort area and ziplined. Very affordable for the location. The hotel has been loved on, but it was clean and the service very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good, although we happened to stay on two of the nights/mornings when two buses of tourists took over the self serve breakfast early in the morning. I would recommend this place for anyone staying in Big Sky.

We booked the room before we knew how far to Yellowstone Park. One way was 55 miles. These extra miles gave a chance to see all the scenery along the highway. The hotel is in a major ski area and would be good during the winter. The hotel is average in appearance and quality of the rooms is average. The shower was fair but awkward in trying to adjust the temperature of the water. They were training a new person for breakfast service which meant some food was very cold. This is not a place to return to.

We stayed in the lodge as it was reasonably priced and not too far from the west yellowstone. the room was clean and comfortable, had all we needed. area looks very nice - as we were visting the place aoutside ski season the majority of nearby restaurants were closed. we thought that hotel would have its own restaurant however it was not a case, we had to drive a few miles to get a meal. Breakfast was a negative experience - food was nice however the tables were set in the way which did not work for the morning meal - it was more living room than a breakfast place. there were a couple of coaches of tourists staying at the same time and we had no place to sit one day. the staff was stocking up plates quickly however it does not help if you can not eat your breakfast sitting...
