“Recommended -great weekend stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

From the reviews, this hotel sounded like the best place to stay in Havre and we were not disappointed. Comfortable beds. Everything was nice and clean. Kids enjoyed the pool. Friendly and accomodating front staff. Excellent breakfast. The back of the hotel faces the railroad but it was not the least bit noisy. We really enjoyed our stay.

I booked this hotel based on other TripAdvisor reviews, but didn't see any mention of an annex of about 10 hotel rooms across the street from the standard hotel. While the room itself was fine -- it's a standard mid-grade hotel room, seems to have newer carpet, decorated in deep reds and green, appears very clean -- it's not actually connected to the hotel itself. That means using most of the amenities, like the gym and pool, or breakfast, required a trip across a five-lane road. It's also got a very isolated feel to it because there is no staffed desk at the annex. It's easy to tell there were definitely other guests here though, since the walls were thin and sound definitely carried from a neighboring room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main hotel.

Thank you for taking time to post on Trip Advisor, we listen to all the feedback we get from guests and try to look for ways to better ourselves. We have many guests that request the Annex because of how quiet and spacious the rooms are across the street. This new perspective you have provided has guided me to look into how we can maybe list these rooms better in our PMS system so guests that book online may know exactly where they will be when they arrive. We do honor requests in the meantime and always enjoy talking one on one with guests about their preferences. Thank you again.

If you are into railroading, this is where you want to go. The Great Northern Inn is situated adjacent to BNSF's maintenance yard, complete with a turntable. If you like trains, they will give you a room on the top floor overlooking the railyard.
The facility is clean, pleasant, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The staff were helpful and very pleasant. They say "Havre - it's the people!" and we thought the hotel staff personified the saying.

Room Tip: Streetside has less railway noise but railside is awesome!

Thank you so much for your kind words. We have many people request the north side of our property to watch the trains. This request is not just for the enjoyment to entertain kids but adults as well. Havre has one of less than a handfull of functioning Turn Tables in the US and myself included like to watch them move. We are more than happy to honor any requests that a guest may make if possible. Thank you again and I will pass along the kind words.

Did not know what to expect being the first time there. Pleasantly surprised. Very clean room. Hotel is right next to train tracks. Was not noisy the night I stayed. The breakfast is great - sausage gravy with biscuits, juices, coffee, fruit, and cereal. Check is was great. Very friendly clerk. Check out was quick. There is a good place to eat across from the hotel - The Duck Inn. Will stay again

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the south side of the hotel, away from tracks.

This hotel embodies the best part of the chain with some local touches in decor. Hot breakfast bar was welcome - including make your own waffles, an assortment of breads for toast, scrambled eggs and gravy on biscuits. Cookies and fresh fruit as well as a coffee tea setup were nice in the lobby. Workout room is small but rarely had anyone in it. To get all the way in to town, a car is mandatory as you go up and over the hill to the main street. The better restaurants are on the east end of town so you have to drive all the way through to get there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street side although there is not much traffic at night.

Having traveled over 2700 miles in just over a week, we were looking for a good night's sleep. We had reserved a room at the Best Western, and our first view of the hotel was inviting. Indeed, the hotel was bright, clean and spacious, and the room was very clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast provided a good kick start for the next day as well. We would stay there again if we are ever back in the area.

Very nice. Friendly staff. Extra clean rooms. Good breakfast. Best Best Western ever stayed at and would recommend this to everyone. Price is average for the location near the Park. Drive to Park is easy from this location.
