Arrived on a busy weekend to a smooth check-in and super clean room. We were tired from driving so we decided to try out the in-house bar n grill. I ordered a ribeye and my SO the chicken Alfredo; both were excellent. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was very inviting. 10/10 would stay here again!

This is our 3rd stay here, and each time I see improvements! Love the idea of the safety fence on the pool. The food is excellent, and I love how friendly the breakfast staff are. The indoor heated parking was very much appreciated on the April snow days. We are centrally located with easy access to Yellowstone Park and Bozeman.

I am a 37 weeks pregnant woman, who called trying to get a room for my last two weeks of my pregnancy. I call, asking if the rent rooms by weekly or monthly rates. The manager mind you tells me, no ma'am we don't usually rent rooms like that this time of year. What is that? The super 8 at... More

The hotel looks nothing like the picture when you pull up. The lobby is decent and they offer tea, coffee and cookies (one day the cookies were burnt though). I had a reservation for two days for a room with 2 beds and called ahead to see if they had any suites available to upgrade. The lady who answered said... More

We stayed here on business. Our room was large and the bed very comfortable. We appreciated the friendly staff. The complimentary breakfast had good variety and good coffee! We had accidently booked the wrong day on-line, and the manager was kind enough to credit us that day that we did not show. We will return!
