Yes, this is certainly an older & somewhat outdated hotel. We had a suite that included a living room with futon, small table, and TV, plus a separate bedroom with two queen beds (with the bathroom attached). The suite had plenty of space and very clean -- as was the pool although we didn't use it. The AC's were a... More

The Rainbow is a bit older place with smaller rooms but everything worked, was very clean and the bed was great. Although close to a main road our room was quiet. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the coffee was great. A good deal.

It is very outdated. The furniture was uncomfortable as well as the bed. The air conditioner didn't cool the room cool down the room completely and was noisy. If you just need to spend the night it's ok. It was inexpensive.

Just needed a place to sleep while visiting family during the peak of tourist season and didn't want to spend a lot of $ that the other places were charging. It's an older motel with some updates, but most importantly the room was VERY clean! The price was decent and they also have a complementary breakfast bar. If you just... More

For a hundred dollars a night we did not get a room with a working air conditioner, we had to pack up everything and moved to a back room the size of a postage stamp, the bathroom shower would not drain, I had to use the plunger myself to get it done, Staying here almost wrecked our vacation.... Stay away

We stayed here for a week and loved it. There is no doubt that this is a basic motel. The rooms are simply furnished, the walls are made of painted breeze-blocks, and there are no frills. But it is as clean as can be (sparkling, literally) and it is run by the friendliest people you will meet. We found the... More

I give this a 5 star because of value for the buck. For $55/night you can't beat it. We stayed here last fall for 2 nights, and again this weekend (5/15-5/16). We chose this last fall because it is one of 2 hotels in the area that still boasts an outdoor pool! Frank and staff are friendly and accommodating, the... More

I am very happy I decided to stay here instead of one of the major chains down the road. This hotel is very conveniently located 1/2 mile from great food and shopping in downtown Bozeman. The room was so clean, the beds had real comforters and nice pillows, new towels, and the bed was really comfy. I stayed in room... More

This was a decent motel, right in the center of 7th Avenue. Close to restaurants, pizza places, and a dive bar. I know this review is short, but I would just rate this as a basic motel with very few extras. Everything was absolutely decent, except for the paper thin walls. I could hear people with their TVs on at... More

If I have stayed in a cleaner room, I don't know when. The room actually smelled of cleaning product when I opened the door. Also, the motel does not allow smoking or pets, which is a big plus for a traveler like me. The place was immaculate - the bathroom absolutely spotless (and has undergone a relatively recent remodel). The... More
