Property exceeded my expectations. Staff friendly, room clean, good amenities and a surprisingly good breakfast. All at a very reasonable price. There was a computer with printer that enabled us to print out our boarding passes ahead of time. If you plan to go to the State Fair in Mossoula (we didn't...didn't know about it until it was too late)... More

We spent one night at this hotel. The location of it was ok, it was within walking distance to several restaurants and fast food places. Check in took quite awhile for some reason but once we got checked in, there were no other hitches. My traveling companion and my 5 yr old granddaughter used the hot tub. It is very... More

My experience was quite different than other reviewers. The check in person seemed preoccupied or confused, and was not very friendly. They forgot to have me sign something and had to later find me and have me sign it. My room seemed fairly clean but there were some large, unsightly stains on the carpet. The bedding and furnishings were dated.... More

The hotel is maybe a mile off Interstate 80 and sits adjacent to a mall with a food court. There are a number of restaurants nearby. There is no pool - they do have a hot tub and sauna - but the room was large, comfortable, and clean, and the internet worked well. In the morning, breakfast was a step... More

This motel is so welcoming and nice. The continental breakfast is like making food in your own kitchen, and the rooms are top notch for the price. The best part is that the place is literally a minute walk to the Southgate Mall.

Great location, very nice CLEAN rooms, comfortable beds and helpful customer service. Had a bit of a issue with reservation and charges. Reserved and paid for two nights with Expedia. Front desk called after first day asking if I was wanting to come in and pay for second night. They shortly called back and said they were sorry they had... More

This is one of the friendliest hotel/motels that I have ever stayed in! I have traveled all over the U.S. in my 50 state marathon quest, and this ranks right up there with the big name chains in terms of ammenities such as hot tub, sauna, and continental breakfast, but is much better in terms of personal service and friendliness....

This place is wonderful. The staff bend over backwards to help and they work hard to maintain a nice fresh continental breakfast. Rooms are clean and staff is sooooo friendly and helpful. This is the best kept secret in Missoula. If you come for the Missoula marathon, they have breakfast ready at 4:00 AM so you can have a nice... More

A clean, comfortable, cute room and friendly staff. The breakfast was also very convenient and tasty. It looks like they took an older motel and did a nice remodel. We had been traveling for quite a few miles and were happy to find a suitable restaurant about 4 blocks away.

Don't be alarmed when you pull up and the sign says motel. It didn't look like much from the outside, but the rooms were very nice. It looks like an older hotel that was completely remodeled. Everything in the rooms was new and not just given a quick sloppy paint job like some of the budget hotels do. The bed... More
