This was the most disgusting hotel I have ever seen, and I've worked as a housekeeper at multiple places. Me and my fiance had just finished a week long camping trip in Yellowstone National Park and had left a day early to road trip back to Canada. It was late, we were exhausted and we wanted a bed to sleep... More

I can't blame the hotel. After all, they did let me inspect the room before checking in. But after paying and moving in I could see that this place is in bad shape on many levels, primarily cleanliness. Good things include free wi-fi, park at the door for 1st floor rooms, a big Albertson's grocery is right next door and... More

I stayed two nights and walked behind the property and watched some fisherman cast their lines and catch what I believe was trout. Got me excited about the area in this mountain town, especially since I've been in Florida for so long. The motel was clean, I saw other posts and took a chance.I'm glad i did stay, It was... More

When checking in, we asked if there was A/C and wifi. We were told there was. We had no cell phone service so the wifi is what was keeping us connected to family in the area. The AC sorta worked (not really) and the wifi sorta worked (not really) There were clothes left behind the sofa from a previous guest,... More

Very spacious room and what a great swimming pool. Book with this hotel directly. Do not go to any hotels.com websites. Hotel staff are very unaware of important events happening in Missoula so if there is a popular event, you better book early and directly with this hotel.

So many things went wrong. When we went to the front desk somebody was very rude & unfriendly. We were told we had a continental breakfast. That my mom could only drink milk because everything had gluten in it & my mom was told they had gluten free things. For breakfast there wasn't a very big selection of breakfast for... More

Rooms are drive up so its convenient to unload luggage. Rooms are spacious. Staff is accommodating and helpful. Only thing is laundry not working properly, and no place for pets to potty. All in all I would choose this place again. Good choice. Comfortable beds and rooms.

I hate to write another bad review, but be forewarned of a couple of things. First, I booked a room for my daughter for Saturday night through Priceline. I received a confirmation from Priceline, and I had never used Priceline before (more of a Hotwire gal myself). I also called the Thunderbird, but they did not answer after about 25... More

This is a basic motel. The rooms were large, beds comfortable, and very clean. I would recommend this as a stop when traveling through. All staff were pleasant. Only addition that I would like to see is some fresh fruit at the breakfast room otherwise an adequate continental breakfast. Will be traveling again in about a month and will definitely... More

We needed a place to stay after having a few beers downtown Missoula and the beds were nice, the shower was made for people shorter than 6' tall. The age of the property is obvious when you go to plug in your cell phone etc. The room was clean and had a microwave and fridge. The room we had was... More
