We arrived without reservations and were treated very well. The desk clerk took us to our room, gave us a brief orientation to the area and suggested a place for supper (Broken Arrow - see review). This gets a 4 because of the price. We have stayed in two of the hotels on the interstate which were no better and... More

I stayed at the budget Inn last night and the staff there is so down to earth. The new manager is incredible,the rooms were clean and it's a cute view as well. It's right by a restaurant which is for easy eating,a coffee shop as well,AND a grocery store. I liked it so much I am staying another night.

Side street parking for truck & trailer. A/C works fine. Basic t.v. Free wifi. Ice & snacks available. They don't jack up the price on holidays like other motels in town. Immediately adjacent is IGA grocery store & laundramat. Would stay here again.

Absolutely the worst motel ever. After we saw the dilapidated room we requested a refund. No way were we going to stay in that hovel. The large man who was assisting the nice lady SCREAMED at us!! Said there would be no refund and if we didn't like it we didn't have to stay!! We left. Motel 6 in Missoula... More

The staff seemed to be high on something and had extremely foul mouths. The room was in disrepair. the deadbolt on the door didn't work. The place seemed full of Hell's Angles and druggies. She was scared to go out of her room. Absolutely the worst!

Do not even think about this place. First, they did not have our reservations after confirming 3 times. The woman at the front desk was clueless and annoying. Finally got my keys and went to my room to find out it was empty....that's right...no furniture at all. Went back and got keys to another where the door wouldn't open because... More
