My family and I just stayed at the Silver Dollar Inn and ate at the restaurant this past late February 2008. We ate at the restaurant too. The Inn is rip-off! We paid $80 for one night. There are only 13 channels. The tv is from the 1980s. The remotes channel up button didn't work and when I inquired about getting another one at the front desk, I was treated like I was a huge pest and was finally told that there were no replacement remotes on hand. No big deal, I know I wasn't staying at the Hilton. I had to take out my own trash. Housekeeping never came around. (We did have the "Do not disturb sign up, but no housekeeper was to be found throughout the day.) There are no public laundry facilities here. When we asked, the front desk lady said that we could use the industrial washer and dryers that the Motel uses to do their linens and that it would be $5 a load! Yes, $5 a load, and you could not even use your own detergent. But to start from the beginning is what I should have done.
The first lady that checked us in, (all I know is that she was not the nice one, Naomi), was extremely rude. When I handed her my credit card to pay for the room she interrogated us like the FBI. When my husband showed her his military id card, she looked at it like she's never heard of the United States Army and asked to see another piece of id. After being dissapointed that my husband is a legit person, she then argued with us about the validity about our credit card. It has the Visa logo on it that is known all over the world, but obviously not in Haugan, Montana, but not a bank or company that she has ever heard of, so she curtly asked us, and explained to us what and if it was or is a credit card. Almost to the point of being absolutely violated, she then checked us in. That evening we ate at the restaurant and the prices are more than what I would have liked to pay. (Two eggs for breakfast, are about $5.00.) My husband's soda was completely flat and might as well as been corn syrup. The waitress was decent. The gift shop is fairly large. Some of the things are priced high as a gift shop would have it. Overall, if my family and I didn't need to stop, we would not have stayed here at all, and now that we have, we're not staying there again, and we're not recommending it. The people that worked at the gift shop are pleasant, but other than that, would not stay there again. Oh yeah, don't buy the postcards in the motel. They're cheaper in the Gift Shop.
