Reviewed 30 June 2013

Older property that definitely needs updating badly. Blankets had cigarette holes in them and some kind of black stuff on them. No refrigerator as indicated. Were awoken by garbage truck outside our back window at about 5 a.m. Dark and dingy. "Grab and go" breakfast consisted of a small package of honey mustard crackers and coffee. Could smell the cigarette smoke from the guy next door sitting outside his room smoking. It was not cheap either. Pay more and stay somewhere else.

So the price is low, but that can have implications....

The first thing I did in the room was unplug the older, noisy referigerator which was against the wall opposite the bed. I knew I could not stand the noise of the motor constantly running in a lumpy 1950's sort of way. But the problem was that my neighbor had a similar fridge against the wall on the other side of my pillow, where my head was laying. So every few minutes the neighbor's fridge would crank up in a lumpy 1950's sort of way, and so I put in earplugs. Earplugs are useful also for the freight trains that come through 100 ft away across the road from the motel.

Other than that I thought it was reasonably clean, although the bed was sunken and should have been replaced maybe 10 years ago.

I think that I will not be back!

Room Tip: check for fridge noise, and lots of luck with that.

Based on positive reviews read here I pre-booked a room. On arrival it was clear that this place has become a "skid row" motel, most of the rooms are rented long-term to vacant-looking chain-smoking down-and-outers. As a single woman, it didn't feel safe. The room I was shown had major water-marks on the ceiling above the bed. The only lighting was a bedside lamp far from the door, plugged in with a long extension cord that one could easily trip over. The stench of tobacco and human odor was overwhelming. As I looked at the room in dismay, the clerk kept discounting the price more and more to get me to stay, all the way from $59 down to $15. Still, I walked away without staying the night and went to the Budget Host, where I was very satisfied.

The guys at this hotel bent over backwards to help us. When we had some last minute changes to our travel plans Eric at the front desk helped us out at midnight the night before via e-mail. Rooms are basic and in need of remodeling but they are clean. The location near downtown is super.

This is a friendly, safe place to sleep. We arrived late and hadn't been planning to sleep in a motel that night. Called ahead when we realized the weather wouldn't cooperate with our camping plans. The woman who answered the phone was friendly and sympathetic, and gave us a reduced rate (alas, summer anywhere near Yellowstone means expensive rooms) for a room with two queen beds.
The room was run down and definitely had been smoked in at some point in the life of the carpet. Fixtures were old. Microwave and fridge worked but were also old. The bedding was clean, but The train running nearby makes things a bit noisy.

The lobby was well lit and well decorated though, and there is coffee (no breakfast, but there are several good bakeries within walking distance in Livingston) The young man at the desk in the morning was also very friendly and helpful.

Livingston is a great little town. We found a natural food store, several bakeries, a cafe, and a historic museum all along the same street as the Country Motor Inn. If the rooms were remodeled this would be a charming hotel.
