We stayed in the 2 bedroom 2 bath room called the Hospitality Suite for 4 nights. Our regular vrbo was booked for that time and both couples were pleasantly surprised. Yes, Buck's need renovating but it was a good price and very clean. The Housekeeping is very good. The beds were very comfortable. The rooms were good sized and airy. Loved the hot tub or it's really a hot pool and the breakfasts were extraordinary. Easy in and out parking. Front desk staff was very well trained and very accommodating.

This was a clean older Hotel. They did some remodeling and the rooms looked really nice. The bathrooms were super small but that is to be expected at an older hotel. The breakfast was pretty awesome!! The room we were in the air did not work properly. We called down and they sent someone up who turned it on and off. The air came back on and then they left. It was fine until 40 mins later. My husband had to get up all night long for 2 nights in a row turning the air to fan and then on and off to get it to work. There was No elevator...Normally this would not have matter too terribly, however a staff or owner recommended a place to go on a Trail Ride with them handing us a pamplet (read my other review) we went on their recommendation..big mistake as I came back around midnight from the ER with a back broken in 2 places. An elevator would have made things so much easier. Also when it came time to check out the staff acted very strange and refused to make eye contact with my husband. It was very unsual and disappointing.

This was a surprise, surprise. I was hesitant about the look of the lodge when we first pulled up, but everytime I turned around there were good things going on. The room was clean and spacious and I appreciated the vanity area separated from the toilet room. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. There was an uncrowded, old school, double hot tub AND the breakfast was the best "comes with the room" we have ever had. We were there for 5 breakfasts and every day the fruit (fresh) and hot meals were different.

The first day someone said that their restaurant was pretty good so we ate there. It was excellent, first quality. We ate there twice. We also had the cutest server, Jennifer, the first night. She was bright and knowledgeble about wines and of course, the restaurant and area.

The experience T-Bucks was great for me and I would recommend it highly.

We make sure we eat here when we are in the area. As always the service and food was excellent. We recommend this to all our friends and families. Make sure you try the rib steak with wine butter sauce.

For a place to sleep and rest with some nice Western decor, you can not beat this hotel. Very clean and well maintained. But understand that the pools are small and techniquely both large, rectangular, hot tubs. They keep one heated in the summer. Our two kids, 10 & 13, still had fun though. Restaurant on premises was very good but not cheap for dinner. Breakfast was very good also. Also within walking distance of a whitewater rafting company. Would stay at again.

We booked our stay with Buck's T-4 Lodge for our Yellowstone vacation. Though it was 50 miles from the Park, it was worth being out of the busyness of West Yellowstone. The hotel staff was friendly and efficient. The room was comfortable and well appointed. A full breakfast comes with the room. The food was very good, with plenty of options. Breakfast seating was difficult to come by on two of our mornings there. There are two very large hot tubs for guests to enjoy. The area is beautiful, and if you like to fly fish, the Gallatin river is right across the road.

This is just such a peaceful place. If you want to get away from things and just forget your normal life, this is it. The rooms are simple, but very clean and decent sized. The staff are always nice and would do anything for you. The restaurant attached has great food. As you see in the picture I attached, there is an outdoor fireplace outside the restaurant, plus two outdoor hot tubs. This is 45 minutes from the west entrance of Yellowstone and a gorgeous drive on the way there. It's only a few minutes from Big Sky resort and there is lots of things to do. The breakfast is a buffet, but good food. With the cost of food around there, this is a good deal between the room, breakfast and location. We saw elk running across the street, and a grizzly bear about 10 miles away. Just amazing.
