I wanted a cheap place for a quick overnight as I passed through Billings. This hotel was the cheapest with the least terrible reviews. It is not fancy, it does not have free breakfast etc. What it did have was a bed with clean sheets, tv and a bathroom with hot water. The bathroom shower doors and slider trays were not well cleaned but the tub part was clean to have a shower. The toilet was clean and so was the sink. The walls were pretty thin so you could hear the other showers going, fortunately I never heard any other noise - inside or outside. The front desk clerks were quick and decent too. This hotel is located right downtown so when I went to grab a quick bite to eat there were a LOT of groups of people loitering about. I didn't feel very safe so I would recommend driving where you want at night even thought there are a lot of options within walking distance. There is a semi- enclosed parking area that is not obvious at first but after checking in I moved my car there. Seems a little more safe to park there.
