“OK, but not a great bargain.”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

This hotel was fairly clean, but with a distinct "animal" smell in the room. It booked up fast, probably due to the time of year and the location. The breakfast included cereal, donuts, toast, coffee, fruit cups and juice. More "continental" than many other locations today that include fairly full breakfast.

Room Tip: If you prefer not to sleep in a room or bed that has been "pet friendly", you may want to...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am sorry your stay fell short of your expectations. I have addressed with my staff the issues you raise and we hope to provide a better experience to our guests. We do have certain rooms where we allow pets, and our goal is that certain smells will not remain for future guests. My housekeepers will be taking better note of these rooms to prevent this from happening in the future.

it smelled like a musty basement and we had to be moved to another room. The next room was better but we still had to use an air freshener that we purchased. The cleaning staff was very friendly. For what it was they shouldn't have charged what they did. never again.

Much better than other hotels in this same price range. It is so difficult to find a decent place to stay on the road anymore without paying a ton.This fits well for cost and being clean and having at least some breakfast to fill up on before pulling out. It reminded me of some of the motels of my childhood. Clean, basic, perfectly fine just not all the fancy frills. Worked well for what we needed which was a one sleep sleep. I'd stay again if looking for a place in that price point.

Room Tip: Second floor toward back looked out on a nice stand of trees.They have the environmental room which...

My rating is based on all the Econolodges I have been to. Not comparing this to higher end hotels. It was very nice and clean! Total opposite my last econolodge stay in another city. Didn't stay for breakfast because it was the low end breakfast you expect at the Econolodges. We went to Perkins instead. Easy to get to. My one complaint is they let the smokers pollute the air right at the main door so you have to walk thru the cloud to get in or out of the hotel.

I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the room and breakfast was. The bed was comfortable and quiet and the shower was fine. The breakfast was really great, very nicely organized, well-stocked, and kept clean. No waffles, but numerous cold cereal choices, oatmeal, doughnuts, and amazing thick slices of whole-grain bread for toasting. We loved the bread so much, we wanted to find out where they bought it so that we could buy a loaf (sadly, the front desk staff didn't know), but it had to have been a local bakery. Highly recommended this reasonably priced hotel. Great spot, right off I-90.

If you are staying in Missoula, you must try the Bakery/Deli at Wheat Montana either off exit 96 at a truck stop or further down Reserve Street. Amazing, huge cinnamon rolls and delicious breads.

We were just stopping through on our way to Helena. Wanted an inexpensive overnight stay because it was late and we were leaving early. Two adults and three kids, including a baby, so needed quiet and clean. It is definitely no frills, but very friendly staff. It was affordable enough to get two rooms, and they were clean and plenty big. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast is not hot, but enough choices for whole gang to grab a bite before heading on the road, again.

We had a quick check-in.
Man who checked us in was friendly and helpful.
Room was clean and comfortable.
Continental breakfast was more basic than most hotels. We all had toast and juice.
Everything in the room was in good working order.
The hotel was quiet and we were not bothered with any unnesessary noice.
We checked in fairly late and were out the next morning by 7:00 AM, so it was jsut a quick stop for us!
