Stayed here for a quick 1 night stopover on our way to Yellowstone/Tetons at the end of July. Love Big Sky, first time there, and this Lodge was conveniently located right in the village, walking distance to shops and restaurants. Loved our room, spacious, well decorated with beautiful Indian paintings, nice wet bar with refrig./microwave, robes, and good storage. Beautiful...

Hi Robin! Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay.

Big sky was beautiful and amazing but I would suggest not staying in this hotel if you are expecting a nice quiet higher end overnight stay. No assistance with luggage if you stay anywhere but the main level, no elevator. The lobby was the best part of the hotel. The room was a bit on the small side, the room...

Stayed at this property in September due to close proximity for our visit to Yellowstone National Park. The hotel had a smaller boutique feel and was nicely decorated. The continental breakfast was excellent. Our room was large and quiet with rustic log feeling. The hotel is located centrally within the Big Sky community which was appealing on its own located...

This hotel served us as a base to discover Yellowstone National Park. (one hour drive) The staff was very helpful and the rooms were decorated with historical American photos, which I loved very much. The breakfast was OK, bagels, muffins, cereal, yogurts and fruits. The lobby was very nice with a fireplace. The room is equipped with refrigerator and coffe...

Nice lodge/hotel in the midst of the Mountain Village. Near the shops and restaurants down in the valley, the ski area is about a 10 minute drive away. The lobby has a typical western lodge feel with river rocks and exposed timbers and a fireplace. There is a good sized hot tube outside. The rooms feel more like hotel than...

Another motel/hotel trying to go for a "lodge" ambiance. But room was adequate and clean, staff helpful. Room could have been significantly improved if they used wasted space outside the bathroom to create another sink/vanity.

This is about the 4th time we stayed here. Big Sky town center keeps growing. It is a great hotel with helpful staff and the historical Native American photos in lobby and rooms add to a nice ambiance. The price of about $200 is just something a person has to swallow if they want to stay in Yellowstone area in...

This hotel was a stopping point in between Yellowstone and Glacier. I wish I stayed longer. Big Sky is a great little town. The hotel was in walking distance of restaurants and ammenities.

We realize now we were lucky to get in here. Small property (only 29 rooms) but you get a personal touch from the front desk staff. Not big enough to host large touring groups so the AM continental breakfast has no lines, is quiet, and enjoyable. This place has more of a home feel. Clean rooms and good, strong showers....
