The better hotel in Cooke City. When I looked at their website, it showed a price of $100/night, turned out to be be $135. A closer look at the website learns me that the first price you see is the winter deal, valid through April 30. I didn't expect to see those anymore....
Buildings looks good, enough parking. Front desk is small but easy. The lady that checked us in was very friendly, told us all we needed to know and went smoothly through all the details. One of them was that the internet is slow because it is satellite, so be patient :-). Room was ok: flatscreen, recent renovated bathroom. Bed was good. I just have my doubts about the carpet...
We wanted a drink in the bar before diner, but the 10-15 bikers in the bar made it impossible because of the noice they made. We took our drinks and sat outside on the deck. It was a nice evening. Restaurant was pretty busy so we decided to go elsewhere for diner.
Pro: clean, close to the park, friendly staff,
Cons: breakfast not included, loud bar.
Will be back again!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Cooke City is situated in the Beartooth Absaroka mountains. Accessible via Montana Hwy 212 Beartooth Scenic Highway, Chief Joseph Scenic Hwy 296 and Yellowstone National Park. Soda Butte Lodge is located on Main Street in the center of town. Our 32 guest rooms are located on two floors of the motel. We are also, the only full service motel in Cooke City with 3-meal restaurant and sports bar full liquor. The large lobby is a great place to relax, by the fireplace or by the windows to "people watch", play cards, read or visit with friends. We are just 3 1/2 miles from the north east entrance to Yellowstone National Park and the infamous Lamar Valley where "wolf watching" is very popular. The area is ideal for wildlife viewing, horseback riding, fishing, hiking, 4 wheeling and many photo-ops. Winter in Cooke City is unlike no other. Extreme snowmobiling, snowboarding and cross country skiing at its' finest. Winter, the lodge, is only accessible through Yellowstone Park (Mammoth) or drive over Chief Joseph to Pilot Creek parking lot and snowmobile in the last 9 miles. Our area is rich in the things money can't buy: history, beauty, wildlife and hospitality. ... more less
