We were a little leery of staying here after reading some of the reviews but sure glad we took the chance. Our room was a decent size, as was the TV. Bed was comfortable and the room and bathroom were very clean. The hallway and room carpets looked like they were just cleaned (which the La Quinta in Great Falls... More

Upon my arrival, i was left to wait at the desk in the lobby for several minutes with no one around. The front desk clerk was on break. The hotel reeks like cigarette smoke. When i got in to my room, i noticed the door was propped open, as if someone was already in the room. when i entered the... More

This was a quick stay, but the staff there was amazingly helpful. It was a little hard to find from the front, and the parking was a little tight, but the rooms were amazing. Very close to downtown with some nice shops and restaurants.

We stayed at this hotel because we had been camping the last 2 nights, it was really hot and we really wanted to use an outdoor pool. The hotels we were looking at online all had indoor pools, but low and behold, we found one and this was it. I booked online and we decided to try our chances around... More

We stayed 2 nights. The room was fine with a comfortable bed and decent A/C. Also nice to have underground parking (very cramped spaces, though). The problem was with staff. The front desk people were both incompetent or rude. They didn't know which rooms were available or clean, even with our reservation. Neither could read their computer screens and mumbled... More

This motel is an older downtown motel with an underground parking garage. The room was spacious and comfortable and the service was good. The breakfast was served in their own restaurant with tickets issued to us. Menus items included choices of bacon or sausage and eggs to French toast and even fruit offerings. We enjoyed our stay

Priceline landed us here en route from Glacier to MN. Parking ramp 6'3 clearance, had to park on street. Room better than expected. Downtown location interesting with bar basically connected to patio/pool area. Older, has character...!

This is a great hotel to stay at in downtown Great Falls. I liked the retro look of the outside. Our room was spotless and very comfortable - the beds were so soft. You get a voucher that is good for a free breakfast from the hotel restaurant - I really appreciated that, as my pancake and bacon breakfast was... More

You can tell that this facility has been here awhile. Signs of wear all over - but still, public areas were kept clean as was our room - just in need of a complete over haul. Our king room was large - but the desk was tiny. There was a couch, but since there was room - a more comfortable... More
