We went to Great Falls specifically to stay at the O'Haire after recommendations from friends. What an experience! If you go in with your eyes open, you'll have a wonderful (if a bit surreal) time.

We checked in right after lunch on a Saturday. The location is great for a wander through downtown Great Falls, which is rife with boutique shops, plus a fantastic toy store (Amazing Toy Store) and an exceptional high-end clothing and knick knack shop (Dragonfly).

But the real fun started back at the O'Haire. We got to the Sip N' Dip around 5:30 with the intention of having a drink, then going down to Clarke and Lewie's for supper. Well, we ordered our drink, but it quickly became obvious that if we left, we wouldn't be getting back in - the place was already filling up! By 9:30, the time Piano Pat and the mermaids started, it was standing room only. The Sip N' Dip is a totally unique experience. The atmosphere is sheer fun. I can honestly say I've never seen any place like it. It was like walking into a time machine to about 1962. We had an absolute blast, as good a time as any bar I've ever been to.

So did we have to skip dinner? No way! Clarke and Lewie's serves their full menu in the lounge, and we took full advantage. Our server worked her butt off that night, running up and down the stairs to fill what had to have been dozens of orders. Even with that, we never waited for food. We had appetizers and dinner (and later breakfast) at the O'Haire and it was all excellent, real down home cooking and very reasonable prices.

The rooms are very comfortable and really quaint. Our king bed was great, though the walls were a bit thin and we did hear some outside noise early in the morning. But hey, what do you expect for $85?

Most of all, the service at the O'Haire is absolutely incredible. Everyone we dealt with, from the front desk to the lounge to the restaurant, was friendly, talkative and truly understood the concept of service. We dropped some pretty big tips to show our appreciation because it was such an exceptional experience.

If you're looking for a place to spend a week, you might want to go with one of the chain hotels on the strip, but for a weekend away, you can't beat the O'Haire experience, We'd go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Ask for room 120 - it's a corner king room that's right next to the parking garage.

Thank you for the wonderful review. We appreciate your business and your kind words. We would love to have you come back and see us! Also thank you for taking the time to visit downtown. We couldn't agree more that Amazing Toys and Dragonfly are two of the best stores in Great Falls. It's nice to have them walking distance. Safe travels to you in the future and again thank you!

We just stayed at the O'hare last weekend and found the room clean but small. The bathroom is so small you can hardly turn around in it without smacking into door. The bathroom sink is outside the bathroom with almost no space to put your your toiletries. Also we experienced (as did our friends down the hall) no hot water later in the morning. The temp in the room (dated thermostats) was hard to get down below 70 degrees without opening the window. Price is good and staff is friendly but be prepared for small inconveniences.

This is the cleanest 2 star hotel that I have been in for a long time! We stayed in a small room on the main floor with a queen bed. The under ground parking kept our car warm over night and we had easy access to our room. The bed and bedding were very comfortable. The walls are a bit thin (I could hear the neighbor's tv) as the hotel was built in the 1960's. Bathroom was spotless.
The Sip-n-Dip is not to be missed. Good drinks and great fun.
It is nice to take the jump and get out of the box to stay in a good old fashioned downtown motor lodge especially this one that is so well cared for!

I really enjoyed my stay here, a throw back to motels of the '50s. I had a corner room, which was nice. Having a rubber duckie waiting for you on the tub is a nice touch. The restaurant, Clark & Lewie's was great for breakfast. I ate there all three mornings, and I seldom eat breakfast at the hotel, when I travel. The Sin 'n Dip lounge is another throwback and very comfortable.

I really enjoyed staying here, but it is not for the traveler, who wants. The atmosphere of a chain hotel.

Room Tip: I had the end room on the top floor, the Wireless signal only came a few feet into the room.

We hope that you took your rubber ducky with you! If he finds himself in interesting places, be sure to take pictures and email them back to us. We appreciate your business and staying with us. We love it hear that we are not like the chain motels. We are proud of our uniqueness so thank you for appreciating that. Come see us again and have a great day!
