I recently attended a wedding in Deer Lodge. The family didn't book a block of rooms quickly enough at either of the other two motels in town, so we had to stay at this place. I had read reviews from here and other sources, and went prepared. I took my own vacuum cleaner, and vacuumed the carpet before we unloaded... More

Cheap price but thought ... what the heck, only one night. We should have slept in the car. If I cannot say something nice then don't say anything at all. That's it. Oops almost forgot, bring your own soap. I have stayed in motels/hotels for over 55 years and was unaware that bars of soap were made this small.

Budget Inn in Deer Lodge MT was a welcome surprise! Our first choice was booked because of the high school a middle school rodeo being in town. The manager was extremely friendly and offered weather reports for the rest of our trip! The rooms were neat and smelled clean. They also welcomed my dogs which was an extra bonus!

We arrived without reservations and were treated very well. The desk clerk took us to our room, gave us a brief orientation to the area and suggested a place for supper (Broken Arrow - see review). This gets a 4 because of the price. We have stayed in two of the hotels on the interstate which were no better and... More

I stayed at the budget Inn last night and the staff there is so down to earth. The new manager is incredible,the rooms were clean and it's a cute view as well. It's right by a restaurant which is for easy eating,a coffee shop as well,AND a grocery store. I liked it so much I am staying another night.

Side street parking for truck & trailer. A/C works fine. Basic t.v. Free wifi. Ice & snacks available. They don't jack up the price on holidays like other motels in town. Immediately adjacent is IGA grocery store & laundramat. Would stay here again.

Said there would be no refund and if we didn't like it we didn't have to stay!! We left. Motel 6 in Missoula... More

The staff seemed to be high on something and had extremely foul mouths. The room was in disrepair. the deadbolt on the door didn't work. The place seemed full of Hell's Angles and druggies. She was scared to go out of her room. Absolutely the worst!
