We had read in an old guide book that the Olive Hotel was one of the best historic places to stay in Montana. We stayed there on our way to Red Lodge and checked in early enough to have a meal downtown at one of the historic bars. The desk clerk was fairly friendly but inept at general desk services....

...and yet we still felt let down. We wanted to stay at the historic Olive due to its age, so didn't expect the rooms to be that great. As it turned out, the room was the best part. First, the 'clerk' (actually, the waitress from the casino down the hall) got us keys to our room and when asked how... More

Suggested by my girlfriend because of location (off the Haynes Ave mess). Easy parking, access, saw Olive's room too. LOVED THE SHOWER!!!!!!! I want one for my house!!! Close to the 600, 519, and Hole-In-The-Wall and downtown Miles City. One of a kind!

Its sad that this place is so run down. The history of The Olive takes a back seat to the condition of the rooms. It honestly looks like the last time it was remodeled was in the 70's, and I am not exaggerating in the slightest. Though the rooms are kept clean, you can only polish a turd so much.... More

The quaint lobby filled with antiques that were once original was delightful. The staff was friendly and helpful in placing us across the hallway from the "haunted" room which no one is allowed to stay in. We enjoyed a relaxing evening on the front porch with some nice people from North Dakota we met at The Montana Bar. Cocktails and... More

not knowing our way around miles city, we were directed here by a local. we really loved the old timey feel, and the staff were so nice telling us of some local attractions. there really is a lot to see in this little town and the olive hotel has such history, it brings you back in time a bit.

I've stayed here a few times and can understand some of the other reviews; however, those are most likely written by people just passing through from one city to another with certain expectations based on other freeway stops. This is old school Montana, which may not be up to some people's standards. The light works, no one cares what it... More

I have visited Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia PA. The most amazing aspect of the self-guided tour through the prison built in 1829 and abandoned in 1971, is that before you pay the $12 to tour it, you are told the facility is in controlled ruin. They are not making capital investment in improving the facility, their capital investment is... More

If you just need a place to sleep, it will do, but we would not stay here again. The lobby is cute but the whole place has a worn-out, run-down feel; it's not so much "historic" as "been there a long time". The room had no air conditioning, and with a mini-fridge in the room, I would never stay here... More

Great to find an old fashioned hotel with a lot of character instead of those awful motels on the edge of every town. Very warm welcome and lots of friendly people in the bar. Nice big bedroom with everything you would need. Great diner opposite for breakfast and superb restaurant nearby for dinner.
