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

As a long time traveler who has stayed from 5 STAR hotels to the most unsafe 1 STAR holes, I'm well aware that there are multiple types of travelers. Some, like me, have spent a lot of time in Hyatts, Hiltons, Omnis, Marriotts, etc. Others stick to the lesser hotels to, rightly, save money. Don't get me wrong: I've stayed... More

The springs on the bed were sprung and groaned loudly when we lay down and whenever we moved. It was so uncomfortable that after a couple of hours I really thought seriously about putting the blankets on the floor and trying to sleep there. I felt really stupid about not having tried the bed before we'd undressed and unpacked. It... More

Based on other reviews I chose this hotel on a solo motorcycle trip through the Northwest US. The room was very clean and although a bit dated it wasn't a problem. The breakfast had the usual fare that you find in most hotels including a very cool pancake maker. If you want a nice, very reasonably priced clean place to... More

We chose to stay at this motel after finding out that all the name brand budget hotels were asking $154 a night. After doing a search on trip advisor and reading reviews, we decided to give it a try. It was hard to find but our GPS took us there. It was a clean hotel, no smoking oder or any... More
