The Josephine Bed and Breakfast is owned by Harvey and Bobbi Bybee and is the tops for a B & B. Harvey greets you with a warm hello and is a cordial as anyone can be. This B & B is HIGHLY recommended for that special stay. The building is one of Billings' most classic of historic homes.

My mother always said "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all". OK, well, the breakfast was pretty good. Ever see a place that passed by "quaint" and went right to "dilapidated"? Enough said.

The place was not clean. Dead plants in pots were everywhere. A cookie sheet full of old bacon grease sat outside our entry the entire time we were there. Harvey was quite nice, never saw Bobbi. The shower (?) received a strong cussing from my husband due to its size,etc.; I didn't even attempt it. Needs major cleaning!

We enjoyed our visit at the Josephine. The "Hat Room" was fun with all the different hats. The breakfast was tasty. We had a problem getting the front door to open even though we had the correct code. Bobbi, the hostess, was enjoyable to visit with.

More shabby than chic. Basic upkeep needed. Do not expect your room to be tidied up unless specifically requested. Jacuzzi not working; shower stall very small, without even a soap dish, enclosed only by curtain on three sides. Proprietor gave incorrect directions to Big Horn National Monument.

My husband and I just got back from a fantastic trip to Montana and we had the privilege of staying at the Josephine B&B. Harvey was a fabulous host and made some mean boysenberry pancakes! He is very knowledgeable about the area and we enjoyed talking with him about Montana! The rooms were clean (we stayed in the Garden Suite... More

I just returned to Kentucky from a 10 night stay at the Josephine! This was my 4th stay at this bed and breakfast. This time I was apprehensive because I had read 2 "unflattering reviews" on Trip Advisor. However, I found the place warm and friendly as it had been on my other stays, but, more importantly, my room was... More

We had stayed at The Josephine twice before, the last time in the 90's under different owners. We had found it charming. This was an entirely different experience. In order not to move us during our two night stay, co-owner Bobbi upgraded us to The Castle Room. It was dingy, dirty, and dark, though the bed was comfortable. There was... More

Old and dingy B&B. Worse place I have ever stayed. For $170 I could have stayed at the Crowne Plaza right down the street. Bathroom soooo outdated, 13 inch tv in the room, all windows leak, found hair on the comforter. Discusting. Breakfast at o dark thirty with last eating time at 0800. I'm on vacation not in the military.... More
