Reviewed 20 August 2016

I stopped here the night before launching into Yellowstone. The park's campgrounds fill early and this hotel in awesome Livingston (much to do and see, great eating and drinking establishments), at just an hour from the NW entrance to Yellowstone was perfectly situated. Good clean room, nice bed, great breakfast, genuinely caring and cheerful front desk.

Beautiful pool, breakfast was great ,person working brought extra eggs to table. Would stay here again. Room was very big and quiet. Location was real convenient. Brought out a big pile of fresh pancakes.

This is an older hotel. It was very clean and had a nice, hot breakfast. The staff was very helpful with local information about seeing the Paradise Valley, Yellowstone and nearby scenic tours. Charles, at the front desk, was very helpful. There is indoor parking available.

Very helpful staff and delicious breakfast buffet. The beds are super comfortable and amenities great. Would definitely recommend this as a stopover in the Yellowstone area. The staff at check-in recommended a local restaurant and it was excellent. Centrally located to the historic downtown area.

Our family was referred here after stopping by another hotel that was already full. It really was a pleasant experience. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean. The pool looked nice although I didn't swim. I also have to say the breakfast provided was much better the a lot of continental breakfasts! I would defiantly stay...

Nice staff. Big hotel but definitely in need of some good cleaning in all areas. Indoor pool is nice but makes both the first and second floor very warm and humid. Elevator is very small hard to get into with the luggage cart and a family of 4. Decent parking. Restaurant on location also pool table and bar.

Thank you for taking your time to write a review on us. We are undergoing renovations and there will be some great changes. It has been a very hot summer for this area, and it has effected our lodge as well. I do apologize for that. We hope to see you again soon! Please feel free to contact us directly...

The bar and restaurant were good and a good value. The front desk staff was helpful, welcoming and accommodating. The housekeeping needs improvement. The beds were poorly made and the vacuum wasn't run for the duration of our stay of 6 days. Cleanliness was an issue. The inside parking garage and pool area were a definite plus. Good for families....

A nice place that maintains the echoes the past. Your key gives you a password for driving into an enclosed parking area. Carts are available to load your bags. Entering the lodge takes one step to push your cart onto an elevator. The rooms are medium to big and quite comfortable. They have a selection of pillows including two soft...

The hotel was good, but lots of pets if you don't like pets around. Breakfast was particularly good for free breakfast. Bar and restaurant were also good. Gambling available in bar if that is of interest to guests, but just video poker type machines.

This hotel is from the pioneer days. It needs a total upgrade. Wall mounted air conditioner , small bathrooms, no air conditioning in lobby or restaurant and carpeting that needs replacing. Getting rooms cleaned was a major task as there were too few housekeepers. Several times we emptied baskets and changed towels ourselves. A central swimming pool with rooms overlooking...
