I just checked in and this is a really tired and dilapidated motel. I guess this is what you get for $45. Hopefully I won't have to listen to noisy neighbors and can get a good nights sleep. This place is really bad.

Management response:

We have researched our records to determine if this reviewer actually stayed at the Lariat Motel. Although limited in detail the review is not consistent with our motel character or rate. We have never had a $45 rate. Although our motel is Vintage, we make a strong effort to maintain our rooms while providing modern amenities. We would appreciate if...

Adorable vintage motor lodge room, and I would have rated this motel much higher if some housekeeping issues hadn't been overlooked. First the positives, I loved the room -classic Western vintage. The manager on site is delightful and friendly. Mini fridge, internet, and flat screen TV all present. Price is reasonable. Negatives -my room had not been vacuumed. It was...

This place has an authentic retro feel, but very nice accommodations. The management are very friendly folks. It's a great family run establishment, kept clean, and has some modern amenities like wifi, and flat screen tv, but otherwise very 50s/60s cowboy style furnishings.

Traveling across country and wanted to visit Bighorn. The rates here are good and they are pet friendly. I like staying in motel style rooms for convenient access to the room from the vehicle. A true 'motor lodge' is an older style and having stayed at a lot of them I was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and decorated...

There's not a lot in Hardin but there was a warm welcome at the Lariat and a clean comfortable room with all you could need for a short stay. The lady who greeted us was really helpful with info about the town and eating options. The County Museum was an unexpected bonus - thank you Lariat

This was a cute little hotel made out of concrete block. It was small but decorated with a lariat theme. They had coffee in the morning at the front desk. The check in gal was super friendly. Not bad for a small town stop over.

Empty parking lot in the afternoon on arrival, not a good sign. We requested a room inspection and found it to be lacking, beds looked worn out, no bathtub and the shower stall looked like it had mold between the broken caulk around the inside perimeter of the shower stall. No luggage racks. The two beds did not face the...

The motel got new owners in May. They are very nice and seem to want to do a good job. The place is quiet, except when the dogs bark, which we only experienced in daylight. It is clean and secure, and the rates are very reasonable. The rooms are a little odd - at least ours was. The interior walls...

We stayed in this hotel en-route from our home in Denver to Bozeman. Although our room was dated and modestly furnished we would stay here if our travels took us through Hardin again. Upon our arrival we received a warm greeting from the front desk clerk. Our room had a comfortable bed and decent working TV. The bathroom had a...
