My husband and I were a little bit skeptical of the Huntley Lodge after reading some reviews, but decided it would be at least at the level of the place we stayed in West Yellowstone the previous night. As we headed onto the Big Sky resort property, we figured we'd done well with our blind booking (we booked via Hotwire).
We've had good and not great service experiences with using Hotwire. This was a good experience. The hotels are always at a certain level, but sometimes the staff seems to take a Hotwire booking personally. The desk staff at Huntley Lodge didn't care that we booked via Hotwire, they were helpful and courteous. Our room was nice (sometimes Hotwire and Priceline customers wind up in the least desirable rooms) and wasn't in a noisy location. We even learned that our room rate came with a complimentary breakfast for each of us in the restaurant.
The breakfast was a full-service menu, not a buffet. It wasn't the best meal we've had in our lives, but it was decent and better than the oatmeal we were going to eat in our room. Summer in Big Sky is not a busy time, so we had a really attentive server and were the only patrons in the restaurant for most of our meal.
Overall, it was a nice stay. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were clean, and everyone was nice. If we're in the area again, we'll go back to Huntley. Other reviewers mentioned noise levels - I can see how the busy ski season would be noisy. Since we were there at the end of the summer, things were very quiet.
