“A Super Value!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

On 7/13 our family stayed in 2 rooms here, based on a friend's rec and reviews on Google (wasn't listed on TA yet). I was skeptical because hotel was old, but there's not much to pick from in Deer Lodge, MT - we were passing through on a long road trip. What a pleasant surprise to find this little gem for less than $70/nite! Even though this hotel is old (outside entry, 2 story, no elevator), our rooms had been very well maintained and all items in the room worked and were of good qlty. Appeared freshly painted and were as clean or cleaner than any place we've ever stayed, regardless of price... rooms even smelled good. I haven't found this level of care or cleanliness typical of old hotels (esp the bathroom floor, etc). No pillowtop but mattress was comfy and seemed fairly new and of good qlty... same w/the pillows, bedding, and towels. Two easy chairs, flat screen w/Direct tv, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and free internet. Staff (Larry and Lisa) were very welcoming and helpful. The only two things that kept me from rating this a 5 was 1) Skimpy bfast selection (don't think anything was hot, mostly pkgd pastries, cold cereal and some bananas) - we had good and reasonably priced bfast at nearby 4Bs Restaurant; and 2) Didn't like qlty of soap/shampoo in the shower dispenser (we liked the use of a dispenser - used a lot in Europe - just need to improve qlty of soap). All in all this little place is a super value and we will definitely stay here again when we pass through, and will recommend to others.

After a long day on the road it was great to find this place. Larry and Lisa were welcoming and accommodating. My room was comfortable, well equipped and squeaky clean. The location allows you to easily walk all of downtown Deer Lodge, and the rates were really reasonable. Will recommend the Western Big Sky to my friends, and I will certainly stop again when traveling through Montana.

Clean rooms, little joist creak. Great staff. close to supermarket and has a grill! Continental breakfast includes bagels, cream cheese, pastries, and hard boiled eggs and lots of other stuff. Best place to stay in town.

This is one of those places. We came in at about 10 pm after a very long drive. Not going to lie we sat in the parking lot debating to even go up to the door. Very skeptical, but we where very tired. We decided to atleast look at one of the rooms. The manager was very happy to show us one of them. When we saw how cute and cozy the room was we where shocked. He was very professional, helpful and nice. He only charged us 51.00 for the night. This trip we where on was a 10 day stretch. This place was the cheapest and one of the most comfortable places we had stayed at from WA back to TX.
Very impressed. It had a large room with comfy chairs and a comfy king size bed. It had a microwave and mini fridge in the room, a flat screen TV and a very clean a spacious bathroom. loved our stay here. Thanks a bunch!

We never make reservations and just look for a motel when we get to where we want to spend the night. We happened upon the Western Big Sky in Deer Lodge, Montana, and it was one of the best stops in our month-long trip. The room was large, very clean, very comfortable, and had all the amenities you would expect from a much more expensive lodging. In addition to the room being great, it's closest in town to the interstate, right across the street from a large supermarket with a deli, and right next to Pizza Hut. Very, very, very highly recommend!

Great place and very clean with food close by. Maw and Paw style with good location. Manager acted like she didn't care if we stayed there or not. Will reconsider next time. Price was great and probably the best motel in town.

Room Tip: Maw and Paw style. Clean and nice with food close by but manager is a dud. She was somewhat rude and...

Thomas Y, Manager at Western Big Sky Inn, responded to this review, 21 March 2015
We are very sorry you had this experience with the front desk. The manager you speak of is no longer with Western Big Sky Inn and the current managers have 3.5 years of running the fron desk with this site; a job we enjoy very much. We are hoping very much that you will not only come back and give us another shot, but also come in to see our improvements. We've also added a new suite that sleeps up to eight people, has flat screens and a DVD player; bring your family and enjoy the area sites. Feel free to call the front desk and remind us so we can give you a discount that suits your needs.
