We've traveled to Livingston Montana for years and have always stayed at the Best Western here, But to our surprise when we booked our reservations we did not know that the motel had changed hands until we arrived to find it is now the Yellowstone Pioneer Lodge. Same great room, clean, upgraded TV. We were here last year and it... More

The hotel was clean and neat. Room was clean, fresh smelling and comfortable. Front desk staff efficient, friendly and willing to help with what ever we needed. Pet friendly, Pick up bags for pet clean up at the pet walking location. Breakfast was good. Excellent for the cost.

The lobby is very nice, and the check in experience was quick and easy. The rooms are large and well taken care of, very clean. We enjoyed the breakfast on two mornings, it has a good choice of hot eggs, bacon, yogurt, cold cereal, sweet rolls and waffles. The pool was crystal clear , heated, and very inviting. They also...

After flying into Billings for our trip into Yellowstone, we decided to cut a couple hours off our driving before going into the park the next day. All we were looking for was a place that had a reasonable price, was clean and convenient. That is exactly what we got and no more. This property is an older Best Western... More

This was the worst place I have ever stayed, the rooms were over priced, dirty, gloomy and to top it off I had bettles crawling in every corner of the room. I will make a point to never stay at this property again or any other property owned by this firm. What a disappointment..

Dear Guest: Thank you for your review. Sorry you did not find the stay to your liking. The warm September days cause those pesky Box Elder ladybugs to be on the move. There are different hotels for different personalities so my sincere apologies that we simply were not suited for each other. We have many great renovations planned for the... More

Good location, excellent breakfast, pub food was average, well used hotel, needs upgrade, attendant at front desk was very accommodating and friendly, but no one had any knowledge of the area. Price was to expensive for a hotel in need of a major upgrade

We paid $163.00 for a dark and shabby third rate motel. In order to use our electronics, we had to unplug the TV, Cable and light. The blankets on the bed were so thin I was cold all night. The back of the bathroom door was peeling wood and paint. There were no shower grips in the shower and could... More

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.
