“Another great homecoming stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

We love this iconic, historic hotel and stay every night before MSU homecoming. The homecoming parade starts right outside the hotel parking lot. The motel is older, but the rooms are clean, remodeled and the beds are comfortable. There isn't breakfast in the morning but there is muffins and coffee. They have a great lobby room stocked with games, couches and books to relax in and great customer service!

Room Tip: we like ground level rooms best as there isn't an elevator.

The room I stayed in was re-furbished. I would recommend asking for an updated room. A bit noisy (old plumbing) I brought ear plugs and was very happy.

This certainly is a "unique" motel - I've never seen anything like it. Located right downtown Bozeman (close to campus as well as downtown merchants), it's a throwback to an earlier age. I loved the 50s tunes piped outside as well as in the lobby. The lobby is filled with old, elegant furniture and has a bar, snack shop, wine selections and lots of information on area attractions. Very friendly staff.
The rooms are accessed by the usual walkway in front (it's three stories), but the door is a sliding glass door (see photo). Lots of light! Rooms are large, clean and have two vanities - one in the room and in the bathroom. The air conditioner is on the back wall - worked well.
It was very quiet, but the motel wasn't full. I could hear the neighbors a little bit. WiFi was acceptable. No breakfast, but they did have some better-than-usual coffee and banana bread in the lobby.

So cool! Classic art-deco style, convenient,character filled lobby, and staff, for that matter. I think it was the least expensive place in bozeman this week also. Incredible. Not swanky, but comfortable and super interesting.

The Lewis & Clark Motel, 824 West Main Street, Bozeman, MT., is evidence that local ownership (not just a local franchise of a national chain) makes a difference. Rates are reasonable, accommodations are fine, but the real value lies in the home-like feeling of the place. The theme is tradition; the music is old fashioned (e.g., Sinatra); the fitness center actually is a "rec room" in the basement (complete with fooseball); the lobby has a jig-saw puzzle in progress for any to work on, a collection of antique Life magazines, and the proprietor's doll collection. The proprietor herself, Lisa, the daughter of the founder, succeeds in warmth, customer service, and competence. I am especially indebted to her for single-handedly managing a fouled up FedEx delivery of an important package. If you're ever in Bozeman, stay at the Lewis & Clark Motel and enjoy the local ambiance!

It was July 14th, 2012 at 10:30 PM and I had to stay at the Lewis & Clark motel because it was the last room in town. The room was on the third floor but the elevator was broken. Tried to catch the news but the TV remote was broken. Tried to dry my hair but the hair dryer was broken. The bathroom was filthy, showering in the morning I found used soap left from the last guest. When checking out I asked to speak to the owner as I felt that $150 was too much to pay for such a dirty and poorly maintained room. When I was finally able to speak to Lisa on the phone she said there was nothing she could do. Really? Nothing? Please do not stay at this motel…you will regret every minute and feel taken for having paid $150 for the experience.

We ended up at the Lewis and Clark after stopping at the major chains. Everyone was booked for the night. It was late and we were so thankful to get a room. The Lewis and Clark is older so take that into consideration. They have done a lot of updating, however. There were new faucets, lamps and artwork. You could tell the paint was fresh. The lobby area is so nice with a beautiful wood dining room table where you can enjoy your coffee, muffins, nut bread and juice. The wireless was fast and easy to access. The young woman at the desk was so nice. The price was under $100 and as we have stayed in a lot of places on our road trip, this was a nice place for the money. For an older motel it was clean and we slept fine even with the sliding
doors, they blocked all of the street noise.
