EMI is just south of Helena. Take exit 187 off I-15 to Jackson Creek Road & Highway 282. Their location is a big plus with beautiful views of the Elkhorn mountains in the distance. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our 2nd floor room was large, very quiet, clean, comfortable beds, nicely decorated with a refrigerator, coffee maker, WiFi. Their lobby is large with a lovely western decor stocked with plenty of newspapers, local literature, books etc to read. There's also a outside front veranda with several rocking chairs. The hotel offers your basic continental breakfast. There's also a convenience/gas store and 24 Hr ATM. See their website elkhornmountaininn for info on amenities, rates, photos of rooms, lobby, etc.

Found this property on the AAA Trip Tik iPhone app, rated as a AAA two diamond property. It was exactly what we needed, a bed for the night and had a AAA 10% discount for members. The night clerk Ursala was very helpful and even took time to speak a little German to our son who was taking German as his high school secondary language. Breakfast was very basic really just cold cereal and OJ with lightweight toast.

Room Tip: They were sold out on the upper floor (which is usually my preference) but the bottom floor was very...

Spent a few days here with the family and we really had a nice time. The rooms were large with plenty of storage for our entire crew (2 adults and 4 kids) and the staff was VERY friendly. The location is great with beautiful views and easy interstate access. this made it very easy to explore the Helena area, find an old ghost town, and do it without breaking the bank on lodging.

A nice little motel in the tiny stop of Montana City. Nicely appointed rooms and very reasonably priced. Light continental breakfast included. Great deal just outside of Helena with views of Shingle butte and Strawberry Mountain. Service and people are kind!

My husband and I travel extensively so we have stayed at every kind of accomodations. We were attending a family wedding at a nearby ranch and thus this made the most sense, rather than staying a bit further in Helena. The rooms were very clean, bed was very comfortable, coffee maker, ironing board. refrigerator and flat screen tv. The hotel offers a basic continental breakfast and coffee and tea all day with newspapers and books to read. All this for around $75 per night - how can you beat it? We had entertained staying right in Helena at a B&B for half again as much, we are so glad we did this instead!

BTW, had breakfast down the street at the Hardware Cafe and it was a hoot. Very good coffee - ground on the premises, Huckeleberry stuffed french toast, etc. Have to say - two good finds! Way to go - Montana!!!

We just attended a family reunion in Helena MT. We had heard of the Elkhorn Motel in Montana City. It was near the reunion. The motel was spotlessly clean and the service grand. We could not believe the low prices. I consider this motel as one of Montana's best kept secret. It is a bit off the main exits so the area is serene and quiet.

My wife and I were traveling from southern Alberta to Yuma, Arizona with our C Class motor home. It was beginning to get late and we decided to stay overnight in the Elkhorn Motor Inn ,Montana City as it had a triple diamond rating in the Montana AAA Tour Book.
We had to pass under an overhead canopy in order to access the hotel car parking area. There was no warning signs displayed to show the height of the canopy and it looked high enough for our RV to clear the canopy. Unknown to us the ramp to the area had a rise and the lighting in the canopy failed to warn us of the of a tanned colored cross beam which our motor home struck destroying our roof air conditioning unit,TV antenna unit and a roof vent cover.
The reception staff were very supportive and later advised us that the low clearance warning sign had been removed as "too many people were hitting it." They then showed us the sign which was kept out of sight in a storage room behind the front desk!!

The hotel corridor and room smelled of ? dampness, ?mold and the hotel was deserted except for one other male guest.. We noticed that all the room doors were open in a supposed attempt to get rid of the damp musty smell.

Our trip was canceled due to the damage sustained to our RV and the following morning we were forced to return home. I have written to the owner of the hotel and have not received any reply regarding the fact that we had to pay $1000.00 insurance deductible towards the cost of the repairs to our RV which amounted to over $2500.00. So please beware of the canopy and the absence of any low clearance warning sign at the entrance to the car park area. Hopefully you will not have the same trouble we had.

I intend to write a letter to our Motoring Association and advise them that they should reconsider their rating for the Elkhorn Mountain Inn.....I know we shall never stay there again!

  • Liked — Close to highway
  • Disliked — Failure to provide warning sign for low height clearance at front door and the smell of the room
