Bitten by Snake River Lodge A review of Snake River Lodge and Spa
We stayed at the Snake River Lodge & Spa in late September 2003. The good news is that Yellowstone and the Tetons are absolutely stunning and a must see. We expected the hikes in this are to be challenging, but staying at this lodge was even more so. Active construction (about 30ft from our window) awoke us every morning at 7:00 am. The immediate view from our expensive junior suite was six port-a-potties for the construction workers. However, if you keep the windows closed (which we couldn't as the air conditioning didn't cool the room down) and the curtains drawn, the room is actually nice. If you like your coffee with milk and sugar - buy it at the local Albertsons....room service won't give it to you, even upon request. You can order room service and will find half of your soup spilled over the tray with no silverware. The towels were ripped and one of the face cloths was a rag...REALLY!! For all this, we were rewarded with a check out surprise, consisting of an overbilling by $700. After some haggling this was resolved. Our advice is to definitely visit Yellowstone and the Tetons, but stay away from the Lodge. If you do decide to stay, bring your e-mail rate confirmation and perhaps your own towels.
