“Just what we needed”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

This is a great place to stay in Bozeman if you are looking for a good value. The location is great - 15 miles from Bridger Bowl, near lots of restaurants and easy to get to from the highway. The price was vary reasonable. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The Lobby, Hot Tub Area and most importantly the room was all very clean. Not that this was a problem for us but the Inn only provides a small bar of soap so be sure to bring any other toiletries you may need (shampoo, conditioner, ect.) The only thing that we were disappointed with was the continental breakfast. It consisted of two choices of cereal, oatmeal packets, bread for toast and various spreads (no cream cheese) and of course coffee, tea and juices. We were hoping for muffins/pastries and fresh fruit or bagels. Oh well! Other than that we can't complain with our stay.

The minute we arrived at reception Paula made us feel welcome. She was very friendly and helpful. I was amazed when she offered to carry up our luggage to the third floor as there was no lift. But the service didn't finish there. When she told me that out of town phone calls couldn't be made from the room she handed me her mobile phone to make my call. That is service!!! The room was clean and although there was no hairdryer there was a good sized fridge and microwave. Wi Fi connections and a basic breakfast was provided free of charge. Maybe the owners could consider adding fruit into the breakfast menu and charging a few dollars more for the room. We ate dinner at the Panda Buffet across the road from the motel. I would definitely recommend this motel as a great place to stay.

We stopped due to weather. It is an independent hotel surrounded by high priced chains and we are glad that we chose TLC. The staff was wonderful, both the front desk and the housekeepers. There was a jacuzzi and sauna to use which was delightful. The breakfast was continental but more than enough to satisfy us before heading on the road again. We were in an upgraded room and it was clean and fresh looking.

Room Tip: second or third floor right now

I called ahead regarding their long term stay option. I was greeted with a very friendly voice which induced me to come check the place out. The manager, Paula, answered my questions and even offered me two room keys to view rooms. The rooms were comfortable, the common area inviting. The service I received prompted me to cancel my reservation for the night at a chain motel in the area in which I receive loyalty points. Service matters as does value. This place provided both. We stayed 2 additional nights at this motel. We have also booked the motel for a long term stay in the near future. The service and staff earned my business.

We checked out of a motel close by because we thought they were overpriced and selected TLC Inn on the basis of the photos and the reviews and, of course, the price. We asked for a non-smoking room and on arrival found the cleaner frantically trying to get the smell of smoke out of the room. We bought some deodoriser at Walmart closeby but it wasn't enough to get deep into the bedding.

Apart from the terrible smell of cigarette smoke, the mattress was barely acceptable. The room was clean, but it and the whole third floor had an air of tired grubbiness about it.

The breakfast offered was so bad we went back to our previous establishment and paid for breakfast there!

Although the staff were quite helpful and pleasant, the value for money relative to so many other places was just not there; and we were REALLY dismayed at the cigarette smell. It was said to us that everything in Bozeman MT is expensive in late July, but still.

While others may have been content with their experience, we regret that we were not; and hence we would not recommend this establishment, even at a more reasonable price.

Room Tip: Ground floor, as there is no lift.

Hotel is right off the highway, great location. Exterior has been updated and the rooms are being updated also. Front desk staff is super helpful and friendly. Housekeeping staff were friendly and hard working. Nice little breakfast area with a cozy fireplace in lobby. Great little hotel in a wonderful town!

We thought the rooms were clean and the bed was good. It was a very good price and we liked visiting the cemetery next to it. It is an old cemetery with dates in the late 1800s and early 1900s. A piece of history worth the time to see. The customer service was good. The breakfast was okay. It was close to a restaurant and was in a good location for taking a walk.

Your opinion is priceless and we value hearing from our guests!

As the genealogist in my family I too find that cemetery very interesting.
Bozeman is full of fascinating history.
