Big Sky Hotels

The Big Sky hotels consist mostly of lodges and resort hotels, and when you book a stay at one, you'll enjoy easy access to all that the area has to offer. While cheap Big Sky lodging is somewhat scarce, those looking for a good value will do well at a couple of local establishments. Should the Big Sky hotels be too expensive for your budget on the whole, you might even consider staying at one of the cheaper Bozeman hotels, as they will have you within a relatively short drive of the Big Sky resort area. In addition to lodges and resort hotels, those looking for Big Sky accommodations can also book a vacation rental. There are some pretty upscale condos and private homes for rent here, and they offer an array of comforts, not to mention some added space. In any event, the following recommendations for Big Sky hotels should help you find an ideal place to stay if you are without prior arrangements.

When it's an upscale resort in Big Sky that you are interested in, the Big EZ Lodge is among the best choices. You're within minutes of the Big Sky resort area when you stay at the Big EZ Lodge. You'll also be happy to know that the western boundary of Yellowstone National Park is only about a 30-minute drive away. If the secluded mountain location and the amenity-filled, western-style guest units at the Big EZ Lodge aren't enough to convince you to arrange a stay, then perhaps the gourmet cuisine will. The hotel's dining room is staffed by hard-working professionals, and the executive chef does well to turn out some fantastic food. You can even try some signature wild game dishes during your stay. As for the rooms here, you can choose from a standard room, a deluxe room, or a larger suite, depending on your budget. Standard amenities throughout the guest units include cable TV, wireless internet access, a well-outfitted work area, in-room voice mail, and a multiline speaker phone. Rooms with fireplaces are available, and for those who are fortunate enough to secure the separate Lone Star Suite, a private kitchen and living room are also part of the plan. Choose the Big EZ Lodge as your summertime resort in Big Sky, and you can enjoy fly-fishing lessons on one of the hotel's ponds, which are brimming with trout.

An outdoor heated pool and hot tub help to make The Summit at Big Sky one of the more attractive Big Sky hotels. Because of its slope-side location, The Summit at Big Sky is ideal if you're looking to do some snowboarding or skiing. The guest units at this upscale hotel range from hotel rooms to two-bedroom condos, so you can choose accordingly depending on your needs. Amenities that you can expect in the hotel rooms include a wet bar, a spacious bathroom, a king-sized bed or two queens, individual climate control, cable TV, and more. Some rooms feature jetted bathtubs, and if you bump up to a condo unit, you'll also get a private kitchen and a sleeper sofa. All of the one and two-bedroom condos here have fireplaces, which is a nice added touch. An onsite restaurant does well to meet the dining needs of guests at The Summit at Big Sky, and you're within walking distance of the resort's restaurants and shops. Visit in the summertime, and the staff will be happy to recommend outdoor activities like horseback riding and white water rafting. Come during the winter months, and you can take advantage of The Summit's terrific ski and stay packages.

The Lodge at Big Sky is another excellent resort in Big Sky, partly because of its central location. You can easily hop on the free bus in the morning for the minute-long ride to the ski slopes when you stay here, or you can choose to walk. It's not too far. While it doesn't exactly qualify as cheap Big Sky lodging, this resort hotel does offer reasonable rates. Recent renovations have done the guestrooms proud, and while they are not exactly fancy, they do well to cover most guest's needs. In-room amenities include a coffee maker, cable TV, a microwave, a mini-fridge, a wet bar, data ports, and speaker phones. Free local calls are standard, and a deluxe breakfast bar is included in the rates. You can enjoy buffet-style meals in the hotel's onsite restaurant, or you can walk to any number of village eateries. An indoor swimming pool, a pair of Jacuzzi hot tubs, a fireside lounge, a bar, and a fitness room round out the facilities at The Lodge at Big Sky. After a full day of skiing, hiking, wildlife viewing, or golfing, you might inquire about the massage and spa treatments that can be booked through the hotel.

Since the Big Sky accommodations that are listed above might not fit into your budget, you might consider booking a stay at the cheaper Whitewater Inn. Cheap Big Sky lodging doesn't get much better than the Whitewater Inn, which is akin to a motor lodge. Formerly a Comfort Inn, the Whitewater Inn has done well to refresh its rooms, and among the amenities that you'll enjoy are free local calls, a coffee maker, voicemail, complimentary internet access, cable TV, and an iron and ironing board. Outside of the rooms, the Whitewater Inn boasts an indoor pool, a hot tub, a 90-foot water slide, a fitness room, meeting rooms, and laundry facilities, so you get quite a lot for your money. Even though the Whitewater Inn is already a good value, you will want to look into their ski-and-stay packages when booking a wintertime stay. These vacation packages help to make an already affordable hotel even more budget-friendly.
