We reserved a room with two queen beds because we find we get larger rooms this way, but we never expected our usual reservation would snag us two bedrooms, two TVs, and one and a half baths! We loved this hotel for its location--right downtown--and its nostalgia, but we missed having a free breakfast, frig and microwave.

My husband and I have been traveling through the country and made a stop in Butte on our way to Spokane. It was an unexpected step back in time. Small but clean rooms. Nice staff and very cool history (JFK, Truman and Hoover were some of the notable guests). The town of Butte has a very unique eclectic feel with... More

Good front desk staff and helpful suggestions for breakfast. Nice basic room with a smaller bathroom - everything was very clean. The ceiling fans were very quiet and all we needed to keep the room cool! A/C was in the window too. Elevators (2) worked well and we enjoyed our stay. WiFi was slowing in the evening until about 10pm,... More

Uptown Butte is obviously in the mist of a revitalization and the Finlen should become a focal point. Right now though, the neighborhood around the hotel is a little less than desirable. That's why I can only give this hotel a 3 rating. Presidents & movie stars of past generations have graced this property. The lobby is grand with high... More

We were on a bike trip and stayed in the Motor Inn so we could keep an eye on the bikes. The accommodations were fine; clean and no problems. I used to book motels in Butte next to the interstate but there was always an issue with finding a pub nearby and we don't like to ride once we've checked... More

Although this historic hotel has the potential to be a 4-star hotel, it is run as though it is a 2-star hotel. Arrived at night and the surrounding streets were a bit scary. It's not so bad in the daytime. The front desk lady was friendly, but was a bit distracted by the detective mystery she was watching on TV.... More

If you like old town, historic, clean and $88 vs. $147 for Hampton Inn, you will like the File Hotel. Apparently JFK stayed here. Located very close to the old town in Butte, so you can walk to great restaurants and bars to get the "town feel".

The walls can talk in this place. As you walk through the lobby you can almost feel like you went back in time about a hundred years. The decor is beautiful and they've done a great job at keeping the place up to par. Some one recommend a brand new hotel in town. I can stay in a chain hotel... More

This hotel is a wonderful place to stay in Butte. Get away from the high-priced interstate hotels and stay in historic uptown Butte where you can walk to everything. Very nice room, friendly people. Can't say enough good at the place!

I was initially attracted by the great reviews on Trip Advisor, then I was sold by the low price. I stayed in the motor hotel part of the inn. A wonderful stay. I would gladly return. After 60 days on the road, I now can predict my stay on two things, the quality of the check-in experience, and the ease... More
