On the evening of 2/10/2016, the female bartender was terribly rude, short with many customers, and had a general attitude that she didn't want to be there. Many of us dining wish she wouldn't have been there. The rooms were great! The amenities? Great! Great sized pool and a terrific breakfast! Really, could not have been happier. I would think...

We had got there late, 10:30 p.m. so we didn't get to enjoy the pool or restaurant. But the property was beautiful and the receptionist was very helpful, resonable rates, the room was decent. Even though we didn't get to enjoy the hotel amenities, it was a comfortable over night stay.

I always enjoy staying at the Yellowstone Pioneer Lodge. It is a friendly and convenient location. Each time I return, the staff greet me as a part of their family. The hotel is always clean and inviting. My family visits me there so the kids can use the pool. The staff makes every effort to make us feel at home.

Great rates and a very convenient location close to Interstate 90 and downtown Livingston. Newly remodeled with super comfortable, clean rooms. Amazing staff and the only hotel around with a heated garage which was came in handy on those cold, snowy December mornings!

I always root for places like this. My wife and I look for overnight stays that are inexpensive but not in a dump or noisy place. The people here were nice and the older building was kept up and obviously being remodeled. The features indicate heated indoor parking and you may say, "yeah, right" for 60$ a night, but indeed...
