Madison Valley Hotels:


El Western


The premier hotel in the Madison Valley. The El Western has everything from quaint cabins near a creek to large multi bedroom lodges for larger groups. It has been a Montana Tradition from 1948 and the attention to detail is extraordinary. The perfect place to stay if you are a traveling fisherman, a family, or even that group that wants to experience all that Montana hospitality has to offer. Free Wi-Fi and only 1 mile out of town this is a sure bet.

Silvertip Lodge and Motel


Located in town and walking distance from restaurants and the shop this is the perfect fisherman’s hotel. Great rooms and even a multi bedroom lodge for bigger groups. All the rooms are super clean, well appointed and quiet. When you’re more worried about your fishing and not ultra fancy lodging this is the place for you. We recommend this option every day and have not been disappointed yet.

Riverside Inn and Cabins:


With small remodeled cabins near the river and Lyons Park this is a great lodging option for any group or family. Very well maintained and conveniently located in town and walking distance to restaurants and shops. This is a great option for the groups that want a rustic cabin feel but still want to walk and grab a drink in town. They also have a small RV facility on property.  The entire property backs up to historic Lyons Park and the Madison River.  You can easily walk to fish.

McAllister Inn and Lodging


Set just outside town on the way to Ennis Lake in the great little town of McAllister this is a true gem.  If your looking for quiet and recently built with probably the best restaurant just steps away this is the place.   The lodging was recently built and has all the amenities that you would expect.  The perfect place for the fishing group that wants to eat, drink, and sleep with the best the Madison Valley has to offer.   Also each room has its own patio with incredible views of the valley and Ennis Lake.   Don't be afraid of being out of town on this one as our guides will pick you up and drop you off at your door each day.

Fan Mt Inn


With 27 well appointed rooms this is  not your average budget inn.   Located in town and walking distance to food and shopping this is a favorite for many of our guests.   A great price point and super clean this is a must stay for the traveling fisherman and family group.  The best part is they have a huge parking lot if you are towing a drift boat or other play vehicle.
