It was just my luck to be travelling along I-90 toward Coeur D'Alane, Idaho when I decided to stop for fuel in Deer Lodge. I found myself just across the street from this unassuming property and decided to ask about at the convenience store. They gave it there highest recommendation so I decided to take a chance and stay here... More

Stayed for a week at this motel. It has reasonable prices, convenient to downtown Deer Lodge, and a nice selection of food for the morning. There is also a Safeway store directly across the street. The motel was exceptionly clean, lots of nice thick towels, a small refrigerator and nice little microwave. The owners were very nice and helpful. The... More

Very friendly atmosphere and the room was very clean. would highly recommend staying here to others. Was on the main street of Deer Lodge so was easy to get to the Museums and old prison. Was also close to where my brother and his new wife live and own a business.

We stayed here on our recent road trip from BC back to WY. We needed a motel that included breakfast and was a good value. We booked it the afternoon of arrival and the desk clerk was very polite and helpful. We arrived around midnight and found the room to be basic, but neat and clean. Upon closer inspection we...

Thomas Y, Manager at Western Big Sky Inn, responded to this review

Upon discovering your review, we spoke with our Head Housekeeper Diane to see if she had any insight into how this may have happened and she was horrified. We were not aware of the mistake a trainee had made. If you had notified the front desk of your findings, the managers would have inspected the room immediately and moved you... More

We were traveling between Yellowstone and Glacier and needed a rest. This was the perfect place. The room was large enough to sleep 6 with a bathroom and fan as well as a TV. Beds were comfortable, and shower had enough hot water. As an extra bonus, free wifi worked from the room. To top it off, the free continental... More

This was a pretty typical 1950s style motel. It was very clean and quiet. The rooms were nice and the price was good. We only stayed one night on a long road trip, but I would stay there again if passing through Deer Lodge, MT.

We stayed four nights in the Western Big Sky Inn. We found the room to be larger than normal. Very clean. The room did not smell like cigarette smoke. The management was very friendly. The maid was also very friendly. The parking lot can get a little tight in the evening, but for us that was not an issue. The... More

Nice staff, decent wifi, AAA/CAA discount, outside access with plenty of chairs and tables for relaxing outside. Grocery store across the street. Reasonable rates. Quiet downtown Deer Lodge. Highly recommended when you just have to stop driving.

On 7/13 our family stayed in 2 rooms here, based on a friend's rec and reviews on Google (wasn't listed on TA yet). I was skeptical because hotel was old, but there's not much to pick from in Deer Lodge, MT - we were passing through on a long road trip. What a pleasant surprise to find this little gem... More
