We very much enjoyed our short stay in the Moose Lodge. It is everything you would expect in a quaint town like Ennis. Unfortunately, we did not have the opportunity to meet the owners, perhaps because we were there off season when the El Western scales back operations & only offers 2 cabins for guests. I must say I was...

We enjoyed two lovely nights in the quaint Moose Lodge cabin. My only complaint is regarding the impersonal nature of our welcome. I was asked prior to our arrival if we had any allergies, because they were to leave snacks for us in the cabin. No snacks ever arrived. Kris, the owner was not there at check in. The woman...

We had not been to Ennis in decades so decided to stay after a brief jaunt to Yellowstone. The El Western is a great little spot--cozy cabins and dog friendly. The coffee in the lobby (there is no coffee maker in the cabins) is exceptional! It is clean--and vintage..the heat is old fashioned. The grounds are nice--take a walk down...

Thanks for posting - nice to hear from you! Glad you enjoyed our office coffee. If you prefer to brew your own, the majority of our cabins have kitchens with coffeemakers and filters for your use. The mystery of why the room was partly cleaned before you checked out was not so odd, after all. Not every guest stops by...

First time visit in Ennis but it won't be the last. Roll into town early (1145) and stopped by to ask for check in time; it's normally 3:00 PM but they let us have it by 1:00 PM, They would have given it us if it was ready when we stopped ... you gotta love the small town friendly feel...

So glad you all and Thor had a great stay. We have heard rumors that dogs think our lawns are worth a visit, especially with all the rabbits and deer to check on.

We were passing through Montana and decided to stop at Ennis. We stopped at El Western and asked about availability for the night. The proprietors greeted us and offered us a cabin at a great rate for the night. We stayed in Cabin #27. Their property straddles the road. We stayed in a cabin mountainside. The grounds are meticulously kept....

If you want to enjoy the fishing near Ennis and/ or the restaurants and shopping in quaint little Ennis then this is a perfect spot. Extremely clean and well kept and very friendly owners. There is a tiny bit of highway noise but nothing too disruptive and we were there peak season.

We checked in very late, and they gave us great instructions to get to our room. The room we had was one of the cabins with a bed, no kitchen...very nice, very clean.

We have stayed at the El Western numerous times with both family and friends and have never been disappointed. It is a great place to stay. The cabins, as well as the lodges, are tastefully decorated with just the right rustic Western touch. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The grounds are immaculately kept and the owners and staff are...

This is by far the nicest place to stay in Ennis. All the rooms and homes are clean, well done and comfortable. The best of all is the people who run it. The owners are some of the best people in the world and see to your every need.
