The breakfast was fantastic. Being able to park in heated parking was also nice since it is February. I slept well. The rooms had been updated. We didn't try the pool. It appeared to be fine. We were disappointed that there wasn't a hot tub.

The pool was nice, staff was very nice. The room was clean except for the bathroom. There were little hairs on the toilet, shower, wall and even ceiling. If it would have been a few I would'nt have cared, but when there are quite a few and they are stuck to ceiling, it really grosses me out! Not sure if... More

Definitely disappointed with this stay. Half of the lamps didn't work, the food in the restuarant was bland and soggy. (My 5 year old wouldn't eat the French fries, if that tells you anything). The bathroom was dirty, toilet was cracked and moldy, random electrical units open and hanging in the hallways. This hotel is on the "never again" list.... More

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
