We thought we would take a chance because of mixed reviews and a repeat visit that was better. Obviously they have been trying to do some work on the rooms but they have a long way to go. I can overlook cosmetic things but no mattress cover and flat bottom sheets that don't fit? Sleeping on a mattress with no... More

Very inexpensive.Convenient on and off the interstate. Next to a pretty decent restaurant. Great staff. I left my iPad there and the housekeeper turned it in and the managers mailed it to me. Very impressed with their honesty!!!

We did not have a reservation. We found the room clean, comfortable and large for the price. We LOVE these "mom and pop" hotels especially the ones where we car park outside the door of our room. (being older getting stuff into the room is sometimes a chore). This is a notch above many of the ones we have stayed... More

The rate was $53 after tax for a single. The room didn't have any extras but everything worked great. Clean too. Particularly the Wi-Fi which is super fast. Loved the pink walls and green shag carpet. Right out of the 70s. I wish I had my power mower so I could fire it up and mow the carpet. The only... More

I have stayed here before and was not impressed, but the new staff is doing a lot to try and make it better! The rooms are still dingy, but at least they were clean! The staff was helpful with dinner options! And the breakfast was more than I expected. Glad I gave this a second chance!

I've tried the other motels in DL with poor results. The wifi at Western Big Sky does not work very well, so it is out. Budget Inn has great wifi, and the rooms are ok for the low price asked. I would stay there again. I think it's the best you can do in DL, which I'm afraid is not... More

I stayed at this place before and it was a bit shady. The room seemed very dated and the staff was not very professional. It was however right next door to a restaurant and that was convenient. I would only stay at this place if all the others in town were closed. Or, I would stay in Anaconda or drive... More

This motel would have been ok, if it was not for the very noisey plumbing, every time some one flushed the toilet or run the tap's the noise was quite bad, and after travelling all day, the one thing you need to do is sleep, the location was very good, and the restaurant next door was very good, we had...

The floor in the room was so dirty and stained I would not take my shoes off. I realize this is a cheap hotel but that is not just in the price. A week after we checked out my card was hit with a $250.00 fee for ruining a mattress. when I called to inquire about the charge all she... More
