I recently stayed at this hotel and was very impressed with the staff, the amenities of the hotel, and the very good location in historic Helena. The room was spacious and the staff went out of the way to be helpful. The included breakfast had many options. This was my first experience with Best Western's Premier-designated properties and I was... More

Excellent, attentive staff, well-maintained property and quiet, despite a convention going on at the time. Helena is a lovely town and this is the place to stay to be in the middle of things. We'll be back.

My husband and I had the great pleasure of recently staying at the Great Northern Best Western in Helena. What a beautiful hotel and worthy of its premier rating. Our room was well decorated and comfortable and given it was a handicapped room, the bathroom was perfect for my husband, including a shower seat and other amenities. The staff was... More

We had a room right off of the pool area. The room was huge and very well decorated. Most comfortable, spacious Best Western room we have ever been in. Pool was small, but nice and quiet. Breakfast was awesome! We would definitely stay here again.

This place is a bit more expensive but a bit better than the usual chain hotel you find besides the highway. Clean and nicely decorated rooms, real mugs etc. It is a 15 minute walk to the down town pedestrian area.

Rooms are luxurious, that's right. It had a big room and big bathroom. We slept great, so great, we overslept. I always bring my own pillow because hotel pillows are just too fat for my liking. I always ask for a top floor room which is usually quieter. It had a very good breakfast buffet with premade omelets. It is... More

cdrake3460 - thank you for your time to complete a trip advisor review. Oversleeping in a comfortable bed is a great problem to deal with! We know guest pillows are such a personal choice, however, we certainly can offer other choices. The Great Northern Town Center is easily accessible to all of Helena. We hope you will come this way... More

Parking is horrendous, esp if conference going on. Says pets welcome, but don't believe it. Overpriced and nothing "premier" about this hotel. Rooms are small, service is very iffy. Not welcoming in any way. Many other better choices at better prices in Helena. Look around before settling on this hotel.
