“Elegant style in a small town”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We stayed at The Pollard on the last night of our US summerholidays. The hotel is stylish, quiet, well functioning and service is good. The small town is not much more than one street and the hotel is just in the middle. The cooked breakfast was very good. The announced lively pub was quiet on this Monday evening in July

We booked the only King size room i could find, partner of 6 feet. i also like that the room had a jacuzzi tub. Nice restaurant in the hotel and Breakfast was included at the restaurant. We stayed her post backpacking as our reward. Great place. The only downfall was the Air Conditioner broke in the night and we were given no compensation for a very expensive room.

Room Tip: Balcony overlooks the inside of the hotel, and a view out the back of the hotel. Not much to look at...

This was a delightful historic venue that we agreed was well worth doing. The facilities were charming, clean and well kept. Some of the rooms were small but adequate and what you would expect from a historic venue. We parked behind and had a wonderful evening, walking through the town and enjoying the atmosphere. The next morning we were treated to a fabulous breakfast that we ordered off the menu (included in the price of the rooms). All of us would definately stay there again.

My wife and I stayed at the Pollard for one night the end of June 2013. We booked it so we could ride the Beartooth Highway into Yellowstone. It turned out to be a great decision!

We drove down to Red Lodge after spending a few nights up in Glacier Nat'l Park. We got to the Pollard around 3 PM and our room was ready for us. The place was beautiful and very clean. The rooms were a bit small, but that's to be expected with an older hotel. The staff were very helpful and the restaurant was right off the lobby and we had a complimentary breakfast in the morning. The only downside was the coffee. Brutal, but you can't get everything right!

The hotel is right in the middle of downtown Red Lodge, right on Rt. 212. Red Lodge is a great little town, although they were paving 212 while we were there so we didn't do too much sightseeing. Woke up early in the morning, had breakfast and hit the Beartooth Highway!

We wouild definitely stay here again!

We stayed at The Pollard on July 1, 2013 while on a motorcycle trip. We love staying in hotels with historic nature and we loved The Pollard. The rooms are small and basic but that's what you expect from a historic hotel. The lobby and common areas are well kept. There is a full restaurant and bar on site. We had no trouble getting parking for our bikes in the back which made it easy to get the wheely cart and unload our stuff. The Pollard is on the main street in Red Lodge and our room overlooked the street on the 3rd floor. The hotel has an elevator as well.
Our room price included a full breakfast in the restaurant in the morning, including all beverages without alcohol. Red Lodge has lots of charm and of course it has great proximity to the Beartooth Pass which is not to be missed. All in all a great night at The Pollard.

This was the best of the six hotels that we visited during our stay in Montana and Wyoming. The room was really large, comfortable and clean. I especially loved the whirlpool tub in the bathroom. The staff was very helpful. The Pollard has a great location in the center of town, but it is somehow amazingly quiet. They even have two racquetball courts and a really nice gym down stairs. We highly recommend the Pollard if you are going to stay in the Red Lodge area.

My wife and I spent 2 nights here on a recent motorcycle trip. (The front desk has complimentary rags for bikers to use to clean their bikes.)

The hotel is smack in the middle of downtown Red Lodge. So you can park your bike or car and easily walk to great bars and restaurants. There's also a free carriage ride in downtown Red Lodge so you can cover most all of the town.

Room rates include free breakfast at their outstanding restaurant. (no cold cereal from a plastic bin) You can order anything you like from the menu ranging from steak and eggs, to omelets or simple fruit plates.

I found the Pollard's rates to be comparable to the big, sterile, franchise hotel at the end of town. It's a historical property so rooms are a bit small a quirky (never could figure out our small TV) but what a great experience. We'd go back in a heartbeat.
