The uptown location, courteous staff, and pleasant environment make this hotel a satisfying experience, especially considering its moderate price. On a quiet downtown street, the hotel is easy to get to and offers the ambiance of a four-start hotel.

Very very nice place to stay, we were received like family when checking in and checking out and any questions we had were answered quickly. The restaurant on site was very very tasty. We had the meal brought up to our room.

Very nice staff, hotel facility, pool & hot tub, and breakfast. Very nice, clean rooms. We opened the window for fresh night air, but the trains blow their horns during the night which is unfortunate. Refreshing stay on the vast prairie of NE Montana.

First time at a Premier and it was quite good, the room was on "Garden" level just think the room was great but the Garden needs some attention. Rooms are clean, lobby comfortable, slightly above average breakfast and front desk top notch

I have stayed at the Best Western Premier Helena Great Northern Hotel at least a dozen times over the last few years on my visits to Helena and have always found the beds to be comfortable, the rooms to be clean and the staff to be courteous and helpful. The breakfast they offer is plentiful and very convenient. The location... More

I have nothing negative to say about this hotel. Surroundings & service were top notch. It was convenient if you wanted to be in town near the court house & federal building. For the price though, I could have been comfortable for less money since we were traveling through several cities & states.

I found 100% of the staff at this hotel noticeably friendly, patient and accommodating. I was in town for a wedding with friends, but the staff made me feel right at home even while at the hotel. A friend joined me for 2 nights, but I was solo for 3 additional nights.

This was one of my favorite hotel stays ever. I loved the location, quiet but hip with a variety of good restaurants a few steps away. The staff was outstanding, very professional and helpful. I especially appreciated our friendly, conscientious housekeeper, Johnelle, who took great care of our room with attention to detail. The front desk staff, including Kaeanna, Casey,... More
