As long as you don't mind the fact that hotel hasn't been updated in a while, this is a fine place to stay, and more affordable than most Helena hotels with an indoor pool (at least through Priceline). It is a 2-star hotel, though, so you can't set your expectations too high! The room was typical size, had a desk, table and 2 chairs, mini-fridge and microwave. The bed was comfortable and overall, the hotel was nice and quiet. The heater worked well. Coffee & hot water (tea) available by the front desk at all hours as well as in-room coffee. Breakfast area is small so I'd hate to see it on a busy morning, but there was a decent selection for a continental breakfast: juice, coffee, tea, milk, yogurt, cereal, toast, muffins and danish. There are trays so you can take your breakfast back to your room, since there is nowhere to sit. The pool was warm, the hot tub & sauna hot. Would be nice if there were more seating area for parents who need to be there to "supervise" but don't want to swim. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Our TV was not a flat screen but worked fine. Parking lot is small and, as another reviewer noted, a bit of an odd shape (which I guess is what resulted in a truck parking overnight in the middle of the area you are supposed to drive through from one side of the lot to the other!). Plug-ins in the parking lot, handy on a night that was expected to hit record lows. Our stay was better than I expected and I would go back.
