We really enjoyed our two night stay at the Pioneer Lodge. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the room was large and comfortable. Being able to have a hot breakfast was wonderful. The weather, for Montana in January, was moderate but it was great having an indoor garage. Overall, the Pioneer Lodge offers exceptional service and value.

We were actually in town for a funeral. They put aside a block of rooms for those of us who had to travel. They actually gave us a cheaper rate for this occasion. Staff was very friendly and compassionate. LOVED having the heated parking garage as it was very cold and snowy. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet both mornings and... More

this hotel was the greatest I've ever stayed in. The bed was very soft and I didn't want to get out of it, it was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Breakfast was very fulfilling, being that it was a complimentary breakfast, it over exceeded my expectations. I will not stay in any other hotel but this... More

Staff was very personable and very helpful. Garage parking in January was a special treat. The pool was always clean and available for us to swim with our grandkids. The complimentary breakfast with scrambled eggs, bacon and waffles along with continental breakfast options really hit the spot every morning. The rate was lower or at least the same as other...

Nothing fancy but this is a real hotel with nice amenities such as an indoor pool, free breakfast. Restaurant on site. Indoor heated parking which is wonderful in the winter. Free coffee, hot chocolate, bottled water adjacent to the front desk. Rates are very fair. The staff is nice and works hard (and succeeds) to make the stay as nice... More

I've stayed here many times over the years. This was my first stay since it changed from being a Best Western Hotel. Although it is an older property, it's still the most comfortable in town for the price. Spacious, clean rooms, a great indoor pool and the indoor heated garage is a luxury during winter! The staff and new management... More

Great room, good breakfast, friendly staff. The winter rate charge was the biggest draw for us. We loved the FREE heated garage as we were there just after a snow storm and then there were high winds that quickly melted causing very slushy roads. While we hadn't brought swim suits, we wished we had. The large pool looked so inviting.... More
