This entire trip we stayed in OLD hotels when we had a chance. Not intended at 1st, but as we kept booking more older ones we tried to find others. The hotel was based on the Waldorf-Astoria and built when Butte was a rich Mining town. The second tower was capped off at 3 floors after the Depression hit during... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Finlen. The room was spacious and clean, the staff was great. We stayed in the main building not the motor court. The Cavalier Lounge was a great place for a drink before heading out to eat. The historic town was beautiful, though pretty deserted. Lots of wonderful buildings and history. The Finlen is... More

A classy place. Spacious room that was clean. Desk staff were very accommodating. In the historic uptown. However, there's mostly empty buildings with not much for shopping within walking distance. No breakfast at the hotel. I was happy with the hotel but not with the town, which seemed tired and depressing.

This hotel was well worth the drive in to Butte, historical hotel, beautiful architecture, well maintained. Priced reasonably, clean, we enjoyed it. Friendly staff. Better experience than chain hotels. Be sure to have barbecue at Sparky's just around the corner

If you're looking for something more unique than a chain hotel (but still on the affordable side), I'd definitely recommend staying at Finlen Hotel in Butte. It's definitely more quirky since it's an old building--and the rooms have actual keys, not just the cards that you stick in the door. We went on a road trip and didn't make reservations... More

We spent a lovely rainy Friday night at the Finlen Hotel - Motor Inn. I was a little apprehensive about the shape of the room before we arrived as it was way less expensive than other motels in the area and it was an older hotel downtown. But to my pleasant surprise, the room was spotlessly clean and sparkly. Everything... More

We stayed here to be close to the Butte historic area, and the hotel itself is part of that history. It felt mostly empty, I could be wrong about this, and a bit spooky. We could not stand our standard room, and upgraded for a few bucks to a suite which was wonderful. Many windows with great views of the... More

If you're staying in Butte,you must stay at the Hotel Finlen. It's a classic,old-worldly hotel befitting a place lost in time. You feel like you're stepping back into the time when the likes of Truman,Kennedy and Nixon stayed there! Classy and elegant! And don't forget to eat at Sparky's Garage around the corner.

Very historic place located within walking distance of good food and fun. We stayed in a queen suite and for the price we had plenty of room. There are 2 flat screens, only one bathroom, but a second room with a sink - unique. Fridge, microwave, 2 desks and a pullout couch so plenty of room for up to 4.... More

My brother and I stayed at the Finlen on the recommendation of Barb at the Uptown Cafe, a block up the street. Barb said the Finlen was the best hotel in Butte and we agree 100%. The room was huge, had two twin beds as requested, and a TUB! Our stay in Butte came after an 18+ hour drive and... More
