“Older but adequate”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

The motel is a bit run down and old. There was a hole in the wall of our bathroom where a tile was missing. However, it seemed clean and there was hot water, so if you are used to bare bones motels, this would be just fine. The breakfast supplied more options than I would have expected from looking at the small space. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is beautiful and right off I-90 in Superior Montana, a good place to stop if you don't want to keep going to Missoula.

I felt the room was overpriced, but we were lucky to get a room as we did not have a reservation and were travelling over a holiday weekend.

Room Tip: Upstairs was very quiet despite the hotel being full.

Thank you so much for your review. We want you to know that adequate is not our goal. I will not be happy until we are outstanding in every aspect. We are repairing the hole in the wall you spoke of. To be honest, it was on my list! Thank you so much and we hope to see you soon. Rosie

This was my first stop on my way home from Victoria BC. It is just off Interstate 90 in a small little town with lots of hospitality. I generally prefer to stay in hotel and motel chains, but took a chance on this one and I was really glad I did. The room rate was very reasonable, the room was very clean, the bed and pillows were comfortable room, the breakfast was good as was the coffee. When I pass this way again, I will definitely stay here. For those staying longer there is a restaurant across the street and a restaurant and bar about 1 minute further into town. I ate at the bar in town and the food was quite good.

...and I know small town motels! I travel and stay overnight about 10 nights a month in small northwest Montana places. The Big Sky hospitality starts at the front desk. Rosie makes a point of knowing her guests by name and preferences. When I call for a reservation, she and Anna go out of their way to make the process simple and friendly. Arrival is a warm welcome with every effort to make me feel at home. The room is clean and quiet and lets me get a good night's sleep with wonderful fluffy pillows, do my work with free wireless, kick back and watch tv on a big flat screen tv, or use the in room microwave and fridge for a snack. The greatest nod I can give is that I choose the Big Sky over a nearby Super 8. Warmer, friendlier, more affordable and feels like home away from home! I will plan my travels around the Big Sky every time!

Room Tip: I love trying all the rooms and haven't been disappointed yet! Don't want to tell you which...

I've stayed at Big Sky Motel about a dozen times and can honestly say that you will not find any friendlier staff. Rosie and Anna are super sweet and the coffee is always on. Rooms are clean and and the beds are comfy. They are also pet friendly for a very small fee which i find very accommodating as my 2 dogs go everywhere with me.

I've been staying there for the last month on a construction job in the area. My first impression of the motel was being greeted at the front desk by the manager Rosie and her smile. When ever we would have a problem or questions she was there to take care of them. If we need extra blankets, pillows or utensils she was there to help. The rooms are warm, clean and spacious. The continental breakfast is nice to have before going to the jobsite. If your lucky you might get something extra that she will make for breakfast. Over all my experience living there is like home. Staff and manager are friendly and are there to help you with any issues that might come up. I look forward to staying there for anther couple of months.

We were looking for a place to spend the night while travelling. We saw the sign for the motel and pulled in. We were pleasantly surprised to find the rooms were clean, staff was friendly and it was a great price. I highly recommend this roadside motel.

We stayed here last night. I was a little nervous because it's a very small town & the hotel didn't look like much from the outside. However, it was a pleasant surprise when we opened the door to the room. It was spacious, the carpet looked newer & the bed was comfy. Everything was very clean. I would have given it a 5 but it was cold out (about 25) & it took a long time for the heat to get the room warm. At first, we didn't think it worked & the lady at the desk didn't know much about it. Once it got warm, it was fine. They had free wifi. It was a little slow but we were upstairs toward the far end. They had a small continental breakfast that was ok, cereal, bagels, juice, raisin toast, etc. I would definitely go there again if we were in the area.
