We stayed here because it was dog friendly. The only good thing was that it had indoor parking and it was raining. We had confirmed reservations through Best Western but it seems not to be bookable through them anymore. First thing the clerk said was that it was good we had shown up at 7pm as he could have given... More

This place is strange. We booked this hotel because a lots of seemingly comparable hotels were full. If this was not the case, we would have left as soon as we experienced the reception area. When entering, it is very dark and appears shabby. Adding to that fact was the fact that no one was at the reception desk and... More

On August 23, 2014 my granddaughters wedding day was planned as an outdoor venue, however Montana rain stopped the wedding in its muddy tracks. Over a hundred guests had travelled hundreds of miles to attend the wedding only to find that the sudden and unexpected rain storm had turned her wedding site into a muddy washed out disaster site. Near... More

My daughter was married on 8-23-14, an outdoor wedding was planned and there was no backup planned. Needless to say it rained and rained and her dad's house where the wedding and reception were planned was flooded and nothing but mud. My daughter was in tears and as a mother I needed to make this happen and make it her... More

Upkeep and cleanliness of hotel was very disappointing. Housekeeping staff not trained and breakfast food was luke warm. Manager needs to visit facility and evaluate and resolve problems. Very good location and covered parking was an advantage.

We stopped here for a night while visiting Yellowstone. We walked in and asked about the room rates and we found that they were very good compared with the other motels and hotels in the area. Our rom was very nice and large and clean and had everything we needed. We loved the indoor pool which was very nice and... More

This place has no spare electrical outlets for your phone, I-Pod, I-Pad, & camera battery . When you have to unplug something to use an outlet, that is ridiculous. I am used to the lovely Hampton Inns that provide you with plenty of electrical outlets and this was the opposite. Stayed for 5 nights on business and only had my... More

Really needs refurbishing, but very jammed up and dusty. Good price, but had we been spending any time in the facility for more than sleep, it would not have been worth it. We were at convention during most of the day, so that saved us. Room was poorly cleaned and maintained. Edges of carpet next to walls had weeks of... More

Dear Ed, I am glad you mentioned that our property could use some refurbishing because we are currently in the process of renovating as we speak. We are under new management as of recent and we are constantly working to improve our hotel every day to complete our transition! Once we complete our transition, we will be absolutely sure to...

Filthy carpets in the lobby and hallways. Old building with only one outlet in the bathroom. Staff members were often outside smoking and when they noticed someone at the desk they would come in. TV didn't work and was told they changed cable companies and they were sorry for the inconvenience. Would never stay there again and would drive much... More

I was booked at this motel for a business meeting for a non-profit organization. I also stayed there for three nights. Despite sending a list of required equipment and a room layout, none of this was fulfilled. It was the worst logistic support I have experienced in 30 years of doing meetings in 28 states. The general manager never replied... More

Hello there Bob, I am so sorry you felt your room was not prepared for you when you arrived for your business stay! I spoke with our staff and they assured me that they had every thing prepared for you as you had asked. Unfortunately, you were not able to get into the meeting room the day before as we... More
