“Hated this place”
Reviewed 15 June 2005

The walk-in rate was $19 dollars higher per night than the lowest rates found on the internet. The room we were given was terrible for a lot of reasons & should only be used if it's the last room in town. It was located directly above the office, on a very busy one way with the bus station and womens/childrens shelter out our window along with a mechanics gargage. It was so noisey at night that little sleep was had. The bed was placed near the window where the "room darkening" drapes allowed quite a bit of light through the top because they were mounted too far away from the window casing. The configuration of the room was mostly inconvienent. The coffee table in front of the couch was in the direct path to the bathroom from the bed. We ended up putting it on top of the couch at night. The top sheet was too small for the bed and the mattress pad ended up all bunched up and annoying by morning. The water for the shower was never consistant. Hot to hotter then cool then hot again. CRAZY!! The outlet for coffee, blow dryer etc...was covered by the towel rack (when in use is a fire hazard) and one of the outlets worked intermittently so I had to plug things in one at time. Huge waste of time & annoying. It was quite the trek to the continental breakfast. Outside, through the garage, elevator or up 2 flights of stairs. Very basic breakfast foods. Nothing to brag about. Lessons in customer service are desparetly needed here. The gal was none too friendly & started slamming things around in disgust when I noticed that we didn't get the reduced rates. She said that it would take her all morning to redo our bill so she refused to do it. There's more but I'll spare you any more details about our terrible experience.

Reviewed 28 August 2003

Spent two nights here and no major complaints, except that the front desk staff had problems 'coping'. It's just an old motel in a downtown location. However the location is excellent, only about two-blocks away from bars, restaurants, and Montana's version of casinos.

The motel bar/restaurant was closed when I was there, for reasons unknown. Navigation to the morning breakfast took awhile as you have to snake through a parking garage and FIND THE STAIRS. Get to the breakfast early or there will be nothing left except for stale donuts.

My advice, just SLEEP there and nothing beyond that...
