Spent two nights here. Motel is located conveniently next to Hiway 20 (south of Yellowstone). Comfortable bed, roomy, clean bathroom, plenty of little amenities, wifi, personable staff, and a fantastic restaurant within an easy walking distance. Very pleased overall with stay.

The place was great and the spots were very well taken care of. It was a little dusty only thing is maybe put some sprinklers out for dust. We all had a great time there. Would of been nice to have a later check out time 11:00 is early when you have a group of people. The staff was wonderful.

We stayed at this resort on our way out of Yellowstone. Because of it's proximity to the park, it was very pricey at $170 CAD. Still, it was clean and had good facilities from what we could see (we didn't use them as we arrived late). I would definitely stay again.

Probably the best value in Island Park as far as tent camping goes! The campground was clean and comfortable. Potable water and power at the campsite and access to the pool, hot tub, showers,... makes it an easy camp. It is close to the Highway so you hear it but that also makes it close and convenient to stores, gas,... More

Locating a good trailer spot near West Yellowstone can be quite a challenge. Fortunately the lady at the east end of the park gave us a double sided guide printed on green paper that provided all of the contact and detailed information for all of the Trailer Parks near all of the entrances. What a time saver it was. Sawtelle... More

We stayed in one of the motel rooms which was spacious and clean. There was an issue with the tv but the reception workers came straight away and fixed it. The wifi was great and the beds were comfortable. The only issue we had was the aircon was a bit noisy at night so we turner it off. Would not... More

Hotel and RV park both are worth your attention but don't expect 5 star big city feel, amenities, or atmosphere but that's not to say there's anything negative to say at all. Also, when you compare to what else is readily available in Island Park by way of multi-room facilities - this is among the best.

I loved our stay here! There's plenty of bike trails and lakes around the area, and lots of wildlife too! A moose walked right through our campsite, take that as you will. There's places to rent bikes, rafts, and other recreational things if you forgot to bring them. The espresso place in the campground is also very good, and the... More

It says they are deep in the woods. They are right next to the highway. Tent sites are no good. The bathrooms are disgusting. No refunds either. Make your reservations way in advance for Yellowstone. What else can I say it is just not good for tent camping.

Stayed in the RV park for 5 nights. Bathrooms were dirty and always out of toilet paper. Complained about the cleanliness of bathrooms when it was obvious that the showers had not been cleaned for at least two days. Shortly after bathrooms were closed for cleaning, but basically refillling the toilet paper was the only thing done. Only 2 showers... More
