Great price, great location, no frills. Staff polite and helpful. Filling breakfast. My only complaint was the mattress- seemed old and "sunken" in the middle. Heated indoor garage. I would stay again.

I liked the location, it was right in the main strip. They also were animal friendly and had a nice area to let dogs walk. They're pool was a good size and pretty deep. The room was nice, smelled good and seemed clean, but BEWARE the walls are really thin. The people next to us came in late and we're... More

The experience with the staff wasn't too inviting. Beautiful place, interior, rooms and city. However, the customer service could use some work. Friday night, the bartender was pre occupied with closing. Didn't make me feel as I she wanted to be there another minute. It was 12:30 am. Saturday morning brought more of the same. The breakfast area was a... More

I recently stayed at this lodge and it was simply great. The room was clean and the bed was so comfortable. The breakfast was just amazing. All the staff were helpful. Joel at the front desk gave me some recommendations to go see in the area. What a beautiful place! I will stay here again.

Deb and her staff treated us like we were their only guests. Friendly, clean & spacious. The breakfast was delicious and the kitchen staff was very attentive. Location was ideal. We'll definitely be back!

Arrived on a busy weekend to a smooth check-in and super clean room. We were tired from driving so we decided to try out the in-house bar n grill. I ordered a ribeye and my SO the chicken Alfredo; both were excellent. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was very inviting. 10/10 would stay here again!

This is our 3rd stay here, and each time I see improvements! Love the idea of the safety fence on the pool. The food is excellent, and I love how friendly the breakfast staff are. The indoor heated parking was very much appreciated on the April snow days. We are centrally located with easy access to Yellowstone Park and Bozeman.

The hotel looks nothing like the picture when you pull up. The lobby is decent and they offer tea, coffee and cookies (one day the cookies were burnt though). I had a reservation for two days for a room with 2 beds and called ahead to see if they had any suites available to upgrade. The lady who answered said... More
