Just stayed at this place in downtown Great Falls-was not pleased about staying downtown but it all worked out fine! I did stay there before and both times it was great. The place is a multi-story corner building with some underground parking. Nice way to keep the cars cool! Outdoor pool that is very clean. The room are big and... More

This was our first stop on our move to Alaska. We were towing a boat, have 2 kids and 2 dogs. We booked the room because they would accept our animals and were told they had "bus parking." The hotel is in downtown Great Falls, parking was in a garage, definitely not conducive with a boat. The room was nice,... More

The beds were comfortable & the TV worked, and breakfast was OK but not great. It was very dirty, the carpets were stained & dirty, dirty walls, chairs etc. We were on the bottom floor near two outside doors that didn't close properly and were left open, therefore security was an issue as the hotel is located downtown. There was... More

Located in the older part of the downtown area very close to the Greyhound bus station. Reception was efficient and pleasant. Booked through Hotels.com. Was given a Parking "permit" for the underground car park right on site. Also 2 vouchers for breakfast in the on site restaurant. The climb up the rather dingy concrete stairs to our room wasn't the... More

This hotel is fine for what it is, an older place located in the heart of the historic district in Great falls, Montana. The lobby is comfortable, as are the rooms and the WiFi strength in my room was great. Others in our troupe said they could not access it at all from their rooms. The beds were comfortable and...

This is an older Quality Inn, part of historic downtown Great Falls, but some updates have been done like decent linens and flat screen tvs. I stayed in a king room which had double sinks and toilet and shower in the same space with a door for privacy, there was plenty of hot water, full cable TV lineup, fridge/microwave, and...

This is an older Quality Inn. Not bad by any means. The carpet and decor was fine especially for the price. We were in a suite. This was a nice large room and much more than we expected. The bathroom was clean. The shower nice and hot. Flat screen tv with a good variety of channels. The bed slept great.... More

We booked this hotel as a base camp for our visit to Great Falls and Helena. We had no regrets. The rooms were ample and ours came with fridge and microwave. There was a swimming pool which we did not get to use as we were usually out on an adventure. The staff were friendly and accommodated a room change... More

You can tell that the downtown Quality Inn in Great Falls, Montana, was a swinging spot in its earlier years. It has a cool layout with the outdoor pool on the second floor. However, this hotel has fallen into disrepair. The bathroom was not clean and there was disgusting grime, including used tissues under the sink that nobody had bothered... More
