First off, this place is dead easy to find. Whether you're coming into Helena on i-15 or US-12, the hotel has signs you will drive right by. They also have billboards on the way into town that help ("Thru town on US-12" or something like that).
There has always been plenty of parking when I've stayed here; I parked my motorcycle under a light and where it could be seen from my window.
The very nice young lady, Melissa, who checked me in on my last two stays was very cheerful and helpful (even at 3 a.m.!) and seemed to have everything I needed before I knew I needed it (think Radar O'Reilly).
This is not a new hotel, but everything worked, and my room and all areas I saw were clean and in good repair. After riding 500 miles through the rain, all I needed was a hot shower and a comfortable place to sleep inexpensively, and Jorgenson's was perfect for that.
The Wi-Fi worked perfectly, and appeared to be a real Internet connection with upload speeds that allow one to upload photos to sharing sites, etc. Many places I've stayed say they have wireless, but they are just using cable or satellite connections where the upload channel is a modem. Not so with Jorgenson's, thank you!
And last, but certainly not least, the free breakfast was a real breakfast, served by a friendly guy who kept my drink refilled. The French toast I had was about the best I've had anywhere, and the pancakes my friend had were huge-- perfect for that teenage son going through a growth spurt.
In short, this place meets my needs perfectly. I have been trying to think of something relevant that it lacks, but can't think of a thing. About the only thing this place isn't is new and plastic-y.
