Stayed here based on other Tripadvisor reviews and really wanted to like it but there were too many negatives. Arrived around 9 p.m. and there was a staff member (saw her working in the hotel later) yelling and swearing in the back parking lot at an acquaintance. This went on nonstop for the entire time it took us to get... More

The hotel was clean. I think. I'm used to clean smelling bedding which I did not have but it did not appear to be soiled. The air conditioning was poor but a fan was supplied to help. There was a mini fridge and microwave in the room which was nice. I felt safe at the establishment and it is within... More

Checked in and they rooms weren't ready. Then when we did check in they couldn't find the keys to the rooms and moved one of our group 3 times. Finally got checked in and rooms very small, crowded, and seemed dirty. Need new rugs, bathrooms are old. Actually the whole motel needs a face lift. Right down town and many... More

We got in late but the lady at the desk was still very friendly and made us feel welcomed. It had a neat atmosphere as it felt like we were on a ranch but were actually in the middle of downtown. Felt safe and there was plenty of parking available. We ate at the restaurant and got the $5 breakfast.... More

We arrived very late and got wonderful directions from Enterprise Rentals. This place is downtown Billings. Everything has built up around it. it is rustic, 50's style with all wood furniture and a modern simple bathroom. Bed was comfortable and the room was clean.

This is an average hotel that could use some upgrades on the mattresses. The shower and sink are in the same room which is a downside if you're traveling with a large family to get ready in the morning. Location was convenient within walking distance of Montana brewing company and Starbucks.

Thank you for your business and for taking the time to give us a review. I'm surprised, our mattresses are less than a year old and we always get great feedback on them. Our location is one of our best features. We look forward to having you stay with us on your next visit to Billings. More

This is an older property that has been kept up fairly well. For a non smoking property it was fulled with the smell of people smoking. Rooms are small, but they are clean. The value of the rooms is not really worth what you pay. Not close to the highway and not close to any restaurants. Off street parking is... More

First, thank you for sharing your experience and taking the time to write a review here. We are in the heart of downtown, less than a mile from the highway. I think you may have missed our "extra" parking lot located outside our courtyard area, we have ample parking and can accommodate buses and trailers. Within a 3 block radius... More

We spent 4 nights at the lodge and were not disappointed. The staff are friendly and happy to assist with recommendations re trips etc. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. While there was no breakfast option with our package there were several options close by including an in house restaurant. We ate there for dinner on 2 occasions and... More

This hotel is fine. It is older and there are weird pipes in weird places and the bathroom was a little funky. The people were super nice though. Billings isn't exactly a happening place - so if you just need overnight lodging this place is fine....I didn't feel unsafe or dirty. It just wasn't refreshing.

My friend and I were pleased with the area, and the lobby as well as the room were very clean (except the one cloth wall to the left of the sink). The room was comfortable and quiet. The shower head really needs an upgrade and some cigarette smells wafted up from the lower floor but all else was great. When... More
