This is a Best Western like no other. I stay at many Best Westerns throughout the midwest. This location is a conference center. Centrally located near great restaurants, sites and museums. The indoor Great Northern Carousel, the Exploration Works Indoor/Outdoor Museum and the seasonal Shakespeare in the Park is only a few hundred yards away. We were greeted with cookies,... More

We were on a 2 week Montana vacation and stayed 1 night here. The complimentary breakfast was good. Really nice hotel close to shopping and sightseeing. Helena is a nice clean city. Would stay again if in the area.

The location of this hotel is terrific. There are several great restaurants nearby including a brew pub that serves great food and a fusion restaurant across the street. It has a town square feel to it. We had a poolside room and really enjoyed being able to do a few laps before bed!

From the moment we walked in I loved the atmosphere in this hotel. The entrance is welcoming, staff are friendly and there are cookies at the reception desk :) Room was very spacious and complimentary breakfast was great (one of the few hotels on our trip that would offer inclusive breakfast).

Riding from Medicine Hat, Alberta and left there at 4:30pm. I had reserved a cabin at Wolf Creek Anglers and told them I would be there about 9:30pm. Much to my dismay, I couldn't find the place so headed to Helena, Mt with about 30 miles more of riding. I found the BW Great Northern on my GPS and headed... More

This hotel is one of the few which meets all of the wishes us travelers want: clean & comfortable room, friendly & helpful staff, a great (complimentary) breakfast, and good cookies at the front desk.
