Hotels by airport already booked for this summer?

Am I too late or too soon? I just started today looking for a hotel for one night before our return trip from Bozeman Airport. Boy, was I surprised to find that the Hilton Garden Inn is showing no availability. Should I have booked sooner? Any recommendations for a hotel that's near the airport for one night? We've got a very early flight, so we're looking for something very convenient. How about the Wingate Inn, or in Belgrade, either the LaQuinta or the Holiday Inn Express?

The airport is between Bozeman and Belgrade on the north side of I-90. There is no direct exit off the interstate that goes directly to the the airport.

Any hotel off the N 19th St Exit would be convenient to get to the airport quickly. The airport is off a Frontage Road and you can access the Frontage Road by getting off the N 19th St Exit. I've stayed at the Wingate which is off that exit. There are a few other hotels there too plus some restaurants, shopping centers, etc. There are more hotels just off the N 7th Ave Exit too. That exit too would be relatively easy to get to the airport from. Just get back on I-90 and go to the N 19th Exit and get off.

Belgrade also has some hotels just off their exit. If I remember right you would need to either to through their downtown area to get on the Frontage Road and go east to the airport. Or get back on the interstate and drive to N 19th Exit and then backtrack on the Frontage Road to the airport.

Hopefully, someone else that lives in the Bozeman area will post with additional help/suggestions. I'm really surprised that the hotel is full already.

Another choice is the Best Western GranTree Inn in Bozeman. They have a shuttle to the airport, although I'm not sure when it starts operating. I do know that the Delta pilots stay there, so it must begin early.

Either of the 2 Belgrade motels would be good choices too - just check their shuttle times (unless you'll have a rental car).

Good Luck!

There are a couple very new motels right by the Costco and I-90/North 19th exit, such as the C'mon Inn and Marriott Residence Inn. The Wingate in the same area is a little older. All three are fine.

By the I-90/North 7th exit is the Holiday Inn, Comfort Inn and Best Western Grantree. Those are fine, too.

And in between on Baxter Lane (which connects North 7th and North 19th) are the Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites. All acceptable chain motels.

I've never been in the Belgrade motels.

The Gallatin River Lodge is a nice place -- I've stayed there as well as dined there. But it's a small inn, fairly pricey, and not really that close to the airport -- it's a bit out in the boonies. I doubt it's what you're looking to overnight before a flight.

Not sure when you're going but I just booked two nights at the Hilton Garden Inn and there was availability for the end of June/beginning of July. Sounds like there are other options though. You can also call the hotel direct.
