After an enjoyable drive through the beautiful Montana mountains, I was happy to find this BW Plus.
Staff were very helpful and I was upgraded to a double queen suite on the top floor. The young lady said it was not facing the freeway, but even though it was - on two sides- I loved it so much I couldn't pass it up.
Decorated in light pine, usually not my favorite, it was done just right. Double-paned windows kept much of the truck noise at bay, but what I could hear was not annoying at all, even late at night. I opened the windows and door leading out onto a tiny juliette balcony and still wasn't bothered. I liked the rolling hills and mountain views from the many windows.
Entering, there is a small kitchen and dining area with fridge w/ small freezer, and microwave, along with a bar sink and nice granite counter. The table was good sized with four chairs.
In the living area was a comfortable loveseat that made into single bed, a flat screen TV and a gas fireplace between the living room and bedroom.
Bedroom was separated from the rest of the suite by french doors with curtains that could be drawn. Beds were very comfortable. Another large flat screen TV hung from the wall.
A bureau was outside the doors and the bathroom with tub/shower and toilet was quite large. The sink area was outside of the toilet/washroom.
I appreciated the top floor and vaulted ceilings.
The pool was quite large and could easily accommodate three lap swimmers side by side.The jacuzzi was big enough for four; both had handicap lifts available. There is also a good-sized steam sauna and a large dry sauna. This large room with huge vaulted ceilings was next to the separate work out area. I really enjoyed the pool, jacuzzi and saunas. Very relaxing!
Breakfast was larger and a little different than many of the BW full breakfasts: instead of the sometimes messy make-your-own waffle station, there was a machine that dispensed fresh-made pancakes at the push of a button. Along with the standard scrambled eggs and sausage, there were home fries, biscuits and sausage gravy. On the other side of the breakfast buffet was mixed fruit (canned, I believe), cottage cheese, yoghurt, and slices of ham, turkey and a white cheese. There were breads, muffins, blueberry scones that understandably went fast because they were so good, and various other pastries. Juices, milk and hot beverages rounded out the large selection.
Back in my room, I hoped to stay and enjoy the setting a while longer and write this review, but the Tripadvisor site was down so I had to move on...
Everything was clean, orderly and service was consistently good. Great job, great place Grant Creek Inn!
