The drive from Yellowstone's North entrance to Livingston, MT gives one the definition of 'big sky country.' The delightful spaciousness, the charm of Livingston, and the kindness of the staff ..great.

We arrived and were a little apprehensive based on the reviews at TripAdvisor. We spoke to the front desk attendant and went and looked at the room.The attendant was very accommodating and polite. The room was very large and clean. We had no problems with this motel at all. We did love the parking garage where we could pull inside... More

Wow! I know you're supposed to find something nice to say about a place, but this one is difficult. We booked a king suite. When we were checking-in, the front desk clerk looked annoyed with us because we interrupted her magazine reading. The room was spacious with a separate eating and seating area. The appliances looked like they hadn't been... More

When we first drove in, thought it was a run down closed motel. We got the closed bit wrong. Tried other motels but as we had left it a bit late after a wonderful day in Grand Teton and Yellowstone others were full. They told us this motel was open but difficult to find the entrance. It seems this may... More

We purchased a three night stay at this hotel through Groupon. Upon arriving we had a hard time deciding where to enter. From the outside, the hotel looks abandoned. We were optimistic because we were very excited to explore Yellowstone. Our room was large and alright as far as the cleanliness. We were told the hotel was under new ownership... More

We stayed here because it was dog friendly. The only good thing was that it had indoor parking and it was raining. We had confirmed reservations through Best Western but it seems not to be bookable through them anymore. First thing the clerk said was that it was good we had shown up at 7pm as he could have given... More

This place is strange. We booked this hotel because a lots of seemingly comparable hotels were full. If this was not the case, we would have left as soon as we experienced the reception area. When entering, it is very dark and appears shabby. Adding to that fact was the fact that no one was at the reception desk and... More
