We decided to give this hotel a try as we usually stay at a different hotel when we fly in or out of Great Falls (to Mesa AZ)! We chose this hotel based on the pleadings of our daughter who spotted the water slide. We were greeted by a happy, bubbly, fabulous front desk girl (wish I had her name). The room was huge, new and very clean. The pool was large and the water crystal clear. Even the breakfast was a hit with all of us! The only disappointments we had was the water slide is only open on a limited schedule which we didn't remember seeing posted on the website (they have a lifeguard on duty when the slide is open), and we had a very large wet spot on the carpet in our room. We did let the front desk know about the carpet and we were offered a new room but decided to stay put for the night as there was no foul smell and we were only there one night. The location is perfect, the staff amazing and overall a great value.
