Rustic, but nice comfortable rooms. Friendly staff. The price is right! I went for a training that took place at the hotel, and they were very accommodating. The location is good if you are wanting to stay in Livingston. The restaurant was OK, but the breakfast is very basic (still OK, just nothing special). All in all it was good...

Each check-in, appreciated underground parking. It seemed very empty. One other car in the garage, never saw another soul. That was all okay with me, but it was too quiet. That feeling was especially present when I entered the dark dining room. Couldn't find a soul so I wandered back to voices in the kitchen. There was a bartender who...

Dear Lorri: My sincere appreciation to you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. I'm sorry you felt the Hotel to be too quiet - it does tend to get that way this time of year.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights while visiting family in Livingston, Montana. We liked the cleanliness of the room and the warm, inviting decor of the front desk area. The kidney-shaped indoor swimming pool is beautiful; I regret that we didn't have time to enjoy it. But, I did enjoy the adjoining pool room (as in billiards),...

It was a very enjoyable stay. The staff was helpful and pleasant. My room was clean, but the carpet was kina worn out. Same with the floor in the bathroom. The bed, bedding and pillows were comfortable.

Stayed for the weekend on business. It's older, pet friendly and staff is accommodating. There is a pool and it's pretty good for conferences too. I did however walk in to the bar and was ignored by bar and wait staff waiting for someone to take a drink and food order for 10 minutes, so I left. Next night was...

We use this hotel as our "Home away from home". Choice was to either rent a vacation home or stay here. Definitely a good place to stay. Use the pool and always run downstairs for breakfast. The staff is always very friendly and helpful.
