I had a reservation here because they said they were pet friendly. I tried to increase the number of beds in my room and the owner called me back and asked what kind of dogs I had. I have labs who are well behaved and friendly and she said "Honey, I won't allow labs in my best rooms." Her attitude... More

The Pioneer Hotel is a historical building that has a lot of potential and is registered nationally. On the positive side, the location is excellent (right across from the river and an interpretive walk), the towels were surprisingly fluffy, the room was quiet and the bed was relatively comfortable. Those are all important things. However, first impressions are key and... More

Thank you for staying with us and I apologize for your impressions. Your visit and feelings do not seem to represent the majority of our first-time guests and the many who continue to return, bringing friends and recommending us to others. My office is home to several businesses and some days are busier than others. Our lobby has magazines on... More

I traveled extensively in my job and I can say the Pioneer Lodge is one of the most friendly places I have experienced. The rooms are modest but nice and clean. The rates are very reasonable. The location is right across the street from the Missouri River and centrally located to the historical landmarks. I look forward to returning with... More

We spent two nights here before and after our week long canoe trip on the Upper Missouri. We had 23 people in our group, and I think we pretty much filled up the place. The place feels a little cluttered, but the rooms are clean (no windows) but the owners were helpful and very accomodating of our large group. And... More

We go to Fort Benton a few times a year to visit our son, his wife, and 3 grand kids. They also have - cats - which my wife is very alergic to, so we make a 500 plus mile round trip, or stay somewhere else. This trip we stayed at the Pioneer Lodge. We planned for 1 nite, stayed... More

The Pioneer Lodge hit the spot for a restful first night of a long road trip. Most rooms are interior rooms with no windows but are modesty furnished and very clean. A small continental breakfast is included with the room rate. The best asset is its location across the street from the Missouri River -- a pleasant place for early... More

After driving through an awful thunderstorm and looking for an emergency place to stay, Susie was kind and accommodating, since there was no opening at the Grand Union Hotel. Although the Pioneer Lodge's lobby and halls are messy with laundry and the front office is dirty and unorganized, the "Homestead" room was clean. The quaint town is very historic, so... More

We spent a night in the Pioneer Lodge after camping on the Missouri. Susie was extremely friendly and helpful in directing us around the town and suggesting good places to eat/visit. The room (Lewis and Clark) was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the place was generally full of character.

Contrary to some reviews, we found our room and facilities to be very clean and with great room rates. We had a loft room with very comfortable queen beds, a dressing table separate from the bathroom and a HDTV. We love small dogs, so we enjoyed having the dogs around. They are friendly, well-mannered and lovable. The manager, Susie, can... More
