We pulled into town on a Friday night with a college football game coming up, so they only had one room left. Lots of steps to get up to the room. It was large and had a jaccuzzi. We used the jaccuzzi but I felt a bit uneasy getting in and out without any grab bar (young people wouldn't have that problem). We had a hard time getting the plug open afterwards, had to use something to get under the stopper to open it. Very hot water. And the trains! The track is just across the street, but they need to blow the horn as they go by. And they went by about every half hour. The TV was an older model, which looks odd now that we are used to the flat screens. One of the barstools had burn holes in the seat, probably from some hair appliance being set down on it while hot.
$99 dollars to catch a disease is what you get at this motel. The only real cool thing was the neon. The pool is filthy , the hot tub ...dear lord and they even made the continental breakfast terrible ....I mean how. Run run away from this motel.
Room #112 > You will here the train horns all night long > We are Non Smokers, however felt like we had each smoked a pack of 25 cigarettes from being in the room. > The whole establishment us stuck in the 70's - datedbeyond belief > Over priced... we were charged $85 + taxes > The previous customers coffe bag we found wet inside the coffe maker ( yuk ) > The prevoius customers Bath Towel was still hanging on the back of the bathroom door Clearly we wouldnot recommend this place or chose to stay here again
I used to stay here 50 years ago. We were passing through Missoula on our way to do a float trip on the Smith River. This was a good place to overnight so picked the Thunderbird. Had read a wide range of reviews. We found the place was clean, well located for off on I90 but a little worn. We weren't sorry we stayed at $75/night. We got what we expected.
It was a 2 star motel so I went in with expectations based on that and it was pretty much what I expected. It was old, dated, a little dirty. My wife claims a mouse ran across the bed, I can't verify that as I did not see it. If you are attending something at Grizzly Stadium the location is fantastic. Checking in was a hassle because they are still in the 60's when it comes to technology and I was a little nervous about showing up without an email or confirmation. What I did not like is I was there for an event and the City was busy and options were limited. This motel would only sell me a room for 2 nights even though I only needed 1. And they jacked up the rate to $125, so it cost me $250 US to stay there for about 6 hours. This is not a $125 night motel and would expect a Best Western or Holiday Inn or something like that for that price. In this case I didn't have other options, but next time if I do have options I would pick something else.…
