“Sleep cheap”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2011

On our eight-day driving tour of Montana, we can't remember anything specific about Motel 6 in Helena, but we do remember it was the cheapest place we stayed and have no complaints. Helena is a clean city that is easy to navigate so be sure to take in some sightseeing if you pass through. The downtown carousel is a bargain to ride and visiting the State Capitol building is free.

Stayed one night in early April 2011. Pleasant staff, but room was old, plain, and thin-walled. Very old carpet; I kept my shoes on. I've stayed in hostels that were nicer. If it wasn't late and I wasn't exhausted, I would have left. Needs a revovation. As others have said, spend a few bucks more and get a nice room elsewhere I will next time..

Standard old fashioned motel 6.
Upon check in the receptionist made the impression of being high, which gave a strange feeling. Next morning the check out recptionist made a much better (good) impression.
A good "senior rate" was offered without having to ask for it.

We needed a place just to sleep for the night (got in late and left early). Have stayed at Motel 6 before and rooms have always been very basic but have always been clean. Not so this time. The floor looked as though it had not been vacuumed in a week (dirt and dog hair everywhere). The bedding was both stained and covered with dog hair. We turned up the heat in the room just so we wouldn't have to use the bedding. The walls are paper thin - could hear someone coughing all night in the next room. Staff was friendly and the room was fairly cheap (about $70), but I would definitely pay the extra $20-30 next time for a better sleep.

Arrived in town without a reservation with a group of people on a budget. Needed a place with a large parking lot. Motel 6 is where we ended up. Started out ok until we tried to go to sleep & a ''youth faith music group" checked in from their "tour bus". I don't know what the adult leader was up to, but to let 4-8 teenagers into rooms at 11:30-12 midnight who are running back & forth on the walkways & wake the whole place up is extremely irresponsible & to not to say unchristianlike. I called the front desk to see if they could move the kids as I saw a room on the lower lever open from my window, we were told no as that was a handicap room. I don't know what the laws are in Montana but would think Midnight would be a good cutoff to give that room out? After another 10-15 mins of shenanigans my husband knocked on the door & they finally opened & he told them that its quiet time & to knock it off..it worked..the walls are really thin & it sounds like they're in the room with you. They were gone by the time we got rolling in the morning,(maybe didnt want to face all the people they woke up??) There were several police cars there responding to a spousal abuse issue in one of the rooms when we were checking out. The lady at the front desk didn't give any aplogy or explanation of the previous nights issues. There' s several other hotels in the same vicinity that looked as accessable & i knew from calling them were only $10-15 more per night. The only thing nice about the basic motel 6 room now Is the cool new showers...I'll give em credit for that.

  • Liked — the new shower stalls
  • Disliked — thins walls & having the last 2 rooms bokked put on eithr side of us!

We stayed at the Helena Motel 6 May 4 &5 2007.
The first night was uneventful.
We noticed that the thermostat wouldn't kick off until the room reached close to 80 degrees (we set it at 65 degrees).
The next day our toilet almost overflowed twice. Went down to get a plunger and use their toilet in the office. The plunger seemed to help a bit. Still didn't trust that the toilet wouldn't overflow. Also the door blew open 3x ...even when we thought we had set the deadbolt properly.
