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

What a treat to stay here. My husband and I were thoroughly impressed with this hotel. Every accommodation could be found in our room and hotel both. Beautiful decor. We found hotel via Trip Advisor and called from the road, stayed one night, July 3rd. Downtown was very quiet, most businesses closed. Enjoyed drinks, and good bar food at Silver... 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.

Overall, this hotel was average or so. The room was large and fairly comfortable and housekeeping was very accommodating. However, we were given a poolside room with immediate access to the pool from our room. We asked for a different room, but one was not "available." If you're a pool person and don't mind not having a window that opens... More

Immacula R - thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We do know that not everyone does want a pool side room, as it does face the pool. Many families do request these rooms for the ease of the pool use. We have had a full convention in and every nook and cranny have been filled in... More

We stayed at the Best Western Premier in Helena Montana when traveling through the area on a three week road trip. The room was big, comfortable and quiet. Very nice restaurant next door. Staff was friendly and helped us when we had to make a reservation change.

We stayed here one night recently on a week-long trip from Idaho to Canada. This hotel is clean, modern and convenient to downtown activities. It also has a washer and dryer, which came in handy, as this was our midway stopping point on our vacation. The breakfast was filling, and the staff was friendly. I would stay here again.

The lobby and room were nice and clean. The best part, the bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in! There was a selection of pillows and the mattress was firm but had a touch of softness you could melt into. I will definitely stay there again!
