“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

It was past midnight when my 87-year old mother and myself arrived at this hotel. Of course, the check in was quick. I had reserved the two room suite in room L 35, which is located within the lower level of this property. It was an expensive suite, but you are actually paying for two rooms. These two rooms are separated by a door that locks. Both rooms were clean and quiet. My mom's room had two queen beds, and my room had a king bed. The two beds slept in were comfortable. In the morning, I used the exercise facility, which is open 24 hours. The gym has two treadmills, a stationary bicycle, a stair-stepper rowing machine, and a weight lifting machine. All the equipment worked great. At the free breakfast, which was served until 10:00 a.m. on Saturday morning, I had scrambled eggs, meat, potatoes, bread, a waffle, yogurt, fruit, and some juice. A full breakfast indeed. I read the complimentary Helena newspaper called the Independent Record as I ate breakfast. The front desk lady, Corrie, quickly checked me out upon my departure. She even Mapquested a location for me that I needed to locate. The Best Western Premier Helena Great Northern Hotel is pricier than your average Best Western. But as the saying goes, you get what you pay for! At all my hundreds of stays at various Best Westerns throughout the United States, this is one of the nicest Best Westerns I have ever been to. I will stay here again when in the Helena area.

H had a very brief stay but it was a nice place with a nice clean room, great location, helpful staff. It was an enjoyable stay. I would like to see a set of stairs right next to the elevator. It seems a waste to take the elevator just one floor up.

This was a very nice hotel in downtown historic Helena, Montana. The room was lovely, walking distance to the carousel and several other shops and eateries around. We travel with a small dog so it's nice to have a high quality room.

If you choose to stay at the Great Northern, you won't have any regrets. Rooms are spacious and clean, staff is extremely professional from the desk help to the housekeepers, and the location is very convenient. The pool/spa is clean and bright. Can't complain about a single thing!

This is a great property, certainly much more than I would expect from a Best Western. The rooms are immaculate - very, very clean and spacious. The hotel is within easy walking distance to a variety of restaurants and attractions including Blackfoot Brewing! Overall, a very pleasant stay, I will definitely stay here again.

Third visit to this wonderful property. Beautiful lobby/room decor. Front desk personnel caring/helpful/knowledgeable. One of best hotel beds I've ever slept in (and I've visited many). Getting here is not that difficult...at the Carroll College stop light, take a right on Getchell. Parking lot is on the left. Centrally located for all things downtown. Within walking distance to Last Chance Gulch walking mall and wonderful dining experiences (On Broadway is a favorite!). Will ALWAYS stay here when in Helena!

Room Tip: Ask for a pool-side room. What fun to walk out of the French doors and jump in the pool! Rooms faci...
