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

This was the only motel in town that had rooms available. The room was disgusting. The carpets filthy, the sheets were not changed from last guest , literately had ...... on toilet seat. I can not see how it is even open to the public. The health dept needs to check it out

The lady at the desk was friendly and helpful and the room was clean though in need of renovation. High speed wifi was advertised on their sign but there was no wifi at all. Breakfast was supposed to begin at 7:30 but we and other customers were there at 7:40 and the breakfast simply wasn't there. Just a rotten banana... More
