The Sherlock Motel is a first- rate, super clean and comfortable traditional motel. Such a pleasant change from the bland carbon copy chains. The stay was a pleasure, starting with the kind reception from the owner, who really cares about her guests. The room was well appointed and spotless, the bed very comfortable and everything just worked without fuss. Just... More

Room was very nice and clean. Wonderful, friendly owner. Highly recommended. Location is great for wandering downtown for some food, yet off the main street, so location is nice and quiet. Check in and out was easy.

The reviews sold the place for me. It is like people said, not new so has some character and Sonia is delightful to visit with and helpful. Rooms are a good size (1 bed though big enough for 2), clean and good wifi. Got recommendations for other motels for my trip east. Sorry to see these places being hurt by... More

A fly would starve to death here. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Décor is right out of the fifties and sixties so if you like something a little different then this is the place. The owners are on site to make you feel welcome and their service and hospitality are second to none.

I can't say enough good things about the Sherlock and Sonia the owner! This may be a budget motel but the room i had was very large, nicely furnished in a bit dated style but sparkling clean, great fast wifi, super A/C and tons of places to hang and store things. Sonia is endlessly helpful... I even saw her help... More

My husband and I were traveling on bikes along the northern tier. Our trip ended in Shelby where we were going to catch the Amtrak. We stayed at the Sherlock which turned out to be a wonderful choice. The hotel is located a few blocks from downtown, two blocks from a grocery and a few blocks from the train station.... More

Great place! Clean, comfortable place. Owner was very friendly & helpful! Great location - easy walk to train station, stores, etc. Very reasonable price. Skip the chain hotels & stay in town with the locals!

Used Shelby as jump off point from Amtrak en route from Chicago to Seattle for week long sidetrip touring Montana. Stayed at the Sherlock Motel first night off a 3hr late train and Mark was at the station to pick us up with our luggage at nearly 10pm, and then drop us back there a week later after giving us...

On our way back to Canada we decided to stop for one last night in the US. Looking up options online we opted for the Sherlock Motel, and were not disappointed. It was a nice, comfy place to spend the night. For a longer term stay we would have liked a fridge, but as it was just for the night,... More

This older motel was very comfortable for us as we needed to recharge after a busy week driving around Yellowstone and Glacier National parks. Our double queen bed room was quiet, clean and furnished with a table with four chairs, a loveseat, fridge and microwave, coffeemaker with shelves and a small bureau. The main street of town was a short... More
