We learned if this place online and it had some great reviews. It is an older facility undergoing some thoughtful rennovations mostly performed by its young newowners who are admirably tackling one room at a time. Our room was comfortable, clean, and recently rennovated. Small bath has no tub but a small shower. Basic amenities in our room. Good parking...

You simply can't go wrong here! Cozy, pleasant, clean rooms, owners most kind, caring, accommodating. Very reasonable room rates, centrally located, easy access to some beautiful county. Wish we could have stayed longer. 😊😊😊

Our stay at the lariat motel was great. The staff was very kind and the motel, although older, was very clean. We will definitely be staying here again. The motel is located next to a great breakfast spot as well.

The owners of this place were the loveliest and most helpful people I encountered on a long road trip. Waylon (owner and ex-history teacher) gave me no end of excellent advice on things to visit in the area and Amy did me a great practical favour. I can't say what or everyone will expect the same courtesy! Great location and...

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
