Room, ok. Grounds a mess. Plastic and paint brushes and half done projects in swim pool area and grounds. Homeless people sleeping in dumpster and on sidewalks. Not sure the sheets were clean the first night.

Thank you for your review! Thank you for informing us about homeless people on the property. We do our best to work with the local shelter and their outreach program to keep transients out of the way of our guests, but sometimes that's not always possible. We have already cleaned up the pool area, as it has become too cold... More

I was able to check in early so that was a plus. Girl at the front desk was super friendly. Checked into my room and must say I was disappointed. Room had a musty smell and looked very old and dated. Was equipped with a microwave and mini fridge. I was a little worried about the area but didn't have... More

This property is tired and dirty. It was updated and painted about 10 years ago and needs to be redone. The carpet was filthy and the upholstered chair in the room was also so dirty that we put a towel over it before we sat in it. My husband had a procedure at St. Pat's hospital. The reason we stay...

I travel a lot and know what to expect with star ratings. this hotel is not a 2.5 star. Luckily didn't need to spend much time there. The location is just okay but you need a car to get around from here for the most part. They were renovating the exterior, but the rooms haven't been touched for at least... More

It has been 6 years since I stayed here before my last stay on 10/2015. It continues to age. The room I had smelled of something. A pillow smelled worse. They allow animals, maybe that was the issue. I stayed on a Saturday. Drunken idiots pounding on doors after 12AM. Dog barking in another room. Someone yelling at their young... More

My stay here was wonderful with the fresh, warm breakfast. The rooms were very quiet, clean and the pillow top bed was extremely comfortable. ALL the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Great location and very close to downtown and most places were in walking distance which was wonderful.

Check in was quick and convenient. A map of the area was provided to assist us in finding a place for dinner. Sheets and linens clean. The chair could have used a cleaning. A device on night stand to charge phones, I-pads and other devices was a great help. The only place we stayed that had this. All hotel rooms... More

We weren't expecting high end based on reviews but this place was awful and Red Lion should be embarrassed to have this with their brand name on it. The parking lot was empty and full of leaves. This should really be called a motel. Receptionist was friendly and gave us a good recommendation for lunch. Lobby was very dated. Our... More

Came into town for a 2-night stay after staying at the Red Lion in Kalispell for 2-nights. Stark contrast! Kalispell's customer service & housekeeping was fantastic - Missoula's was pathetic. Left our room Saturday about noon and returned at 10:30pm only to find our room had never been cleaned. Front desk staff was clearly annoyed that they needed to bring... More

After a week of backpacking in the Bob Marshall Wilderness we had one night to stay in Missoula before returning home. We mistakenly chose the Red Lion (which we originally chose because of its central location). Upon arriving, our room was musty and dingy.
