Clean hotel at a reasonable price. The staff at the front desk was extremely helpful and vert courteous. The restaurant on site was excellent for breakfast and we received a $6 coupon per person for the restaurant which made breakfast extremely reasonable (almost free). We had 4 rooms in our group and I think we were almost the only ones in the hotel; I'm not sure about the sound "proofness" of the walls between room, but I feel like the walls are relatively thin.

Venture Inn is an older motor inn. It was a great stay. We stayed for 5 nights. All the staff are friendly and helpful. They offer a discount breakfast coupon for the adjoining restaurant, which is delicious. And complimentary bottled water anytime along with fresh baked cookies nightly. The room was clean, roomy and quiet. The bathroom was spotless, very clean. The bed was comfortable and inviting.

Our room was very clean but had some really vintage dated tile on the walls. I haven't seen a tissue dispenser in the counter top with a metal cover for a long time. The room was interestingly comfortable. It had a full size recliner, decent size table with two chairs, a full size desk and a king bed. It had a coffee service on the table, a microwave, and a good size mini fridge. The staff were friendly, accommodating, and cheerful. The air conditioner did a heroic job at keeping the room cool at 100 degrees outside. I was worried about the sound of it cycling on and off all night but I was really not bothered by it at all. The bath is tiny, certainly a one person at a time, but more than adequate for a quick shower. Parking is spacious and no problems parking near the door. The pool was quite full of children in the 100 degree heat so we didn't take that plunge but the parents sitting around the pool seemed to be quite happy. The restaurant had a good selection of standard breakfast fare. The coffee was quite good. The bed was quite comfortable and had 7 pillows available. We enjoyed our 2 night stay and would come back in the future.

Hello Xterrared, Thank you so very much for your wonderful review of our Inn. It's an older motel so the rooms are indeed vintage, but we are working on updating them. The rooms have new mattresses, recliners, and bedding. We are delighted that you would come back and see us again in the future.

NW Montana is a guessing game for weather in early summer but even unseasonably hot, this trip was great. For small town Libby, the Venture Inn certainly fit the bill. Although there's a lot of road construction in the area, especially in the area of the facility, they did their their best to minimize the issue. The rooms are dated, but still spotlessly clean and for the most part very comfortable. The a/c unit in room 211 was a bit noisy but worked flawlessly and provided the desired cooling comfort.

Hello, C124Loadmaster we really appreciate your wonderful review of our Venture Inn. Sorry about the road construction it's part of the City of Libby's new sewer system, hopefully, the construction will be done soon. We are delighted that you were happy with how clean and comfortable our rooms are. Anytime you have any issues with your room (a/c noise) always feel free when you stay with us to contact the front desk and let them know. Again, thanks and hope to see you again next time you are in Libby.

This hotel seems to be the best in the area. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Although they were renovating parts of the hotel when we were there, everything was easy to get to. The complimentary cookies and cold bottles of water were a great and much appreciated touch. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The restaurant had great food and large portions. We would definitely stay here again.

It was a great place to stay. Loved the little town of Libby. Great homemade cookies upon check in and the best grab and go breakfast of all of the places that we stayed on our trip - donuts and cinnamon rolls that were very good.

Cheryl T appreciate your 5-star review, and that you loved our small town. I really like the homemade cookies to, so I know what you mean about them being great. I am glad that you enjoyed our grab and go doughnuts and cinnamon rolls, as that was when our restaurant was closed due to construction. Hopefully, next time you stay it will be open as our chef is immensely proud of the extremely high-quality food that is served. Again, many thanks.

My wife and stayed overnight at The Venture Inn last week. Room 316 was very nice along with the rest of the Hotel. There is construction going in the entryway that was not a problem. The facility will be just that much better. The room had four chairs which is normally unheard of. Coffee in the lobby was outstanding. The owner obviously takes great pride in ownership. I am sure it is the best in Libby and the surrounding area.
Breakfast in the Hotel was very good.

The Rooms are Clean and updated. I was surprised since it was not a chain motel. The food in the restaurant was excellent. The Beef in the Burgers is good and unique. A lot of people say that they have good burgers and its the same old food service burger. Their Burger is their own recipe. Best Burger I have had in a while.

What an unexpected delight to see the lobby renovations first hand. The front desk area was a work of art. Many examples from the annual chainsaw carving contest were on display. So many free items that other hotels charge for made it a very welcoming atmosphere. Convenient restaurant on the premises, and several within walking distance. Local parks have excellent walking paths. The swinging bridge and Kootenai Falls are a easy hike just up the highway from Libby. We saw big horn sheep grazing and resting along the river road. Such a treat! Oh, and you never know when you’re going to spot Sasquatch.
