Newest first
9.7 Wonderful
Cons:Bed could be a little harder.
5.1 Fair
Pros:Staff was friendly. Close to grocery store and easy to get to shopping. Room except for bed seemed clean.
Cons:Bed spread, blanket and pillow were very old. Blanket was very worn. Bedspread had stains. All four pillows were hard to sleep on because they were old and lumpy. Train went by in the middle of the night every night and blew the horn and shook the building.
9.1 Wonderful
Pros:Room was clean and quiet. Staff excellent. Breakfast good. I will stay here again. A real bargain
8.2 Very Good
Pros:Stayed here both coming and going to Montana. It is a great value! Rooms were spacious and comfortable. It was clean and had a nice breakfast. The staff were very nice. We would definitely stay here again when we travel through the area!
8.0 Very Good
Pros:The price was right and everything fit our needs. Breakfast was good the next morning, room and hotel were very clean. Location was perfect. If you're not a hotel snob, this will do just fine. Hot dogs, cookies and cupcakes were a nice added touch!
Cons:Didn't like the double beds, prefer a queen, but was manageable. Bedspreads were a little dated.
3.7 Poor
Pros:When we arrived the clerk that checked us in was super nice.
Cons:This is not a place for small children. It's located right next door to a bar. The parking lot did not feel very safe. It's a very old building so it was loud when you walked around. The room was dated and not comfortable at all. The shower was cold and it didn't have any water pressure.
9.3 Wonderful
Pros:I was very happy with this hotel. For such a low price they had several extras. The pool was nice. There was coffee at all hours. They served free soup, crackers and baked cookies at 5:30. Breakfast was good; dry cereal, biscuits and gravy, steel cut oats, bagels, fruit and danish. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, which was most important to me. We plan to book again in the future.
Cons:Being on first floor. At around midnight we could hear the person above us walking around...a lot. Next time I will book second floor and be quiet for my neighbors below! ;)
6.6 Okay
Pros:The location was great! Right off of I-80 and within walking distance of a gas station, restaurants, dairy queen, and a mall. The beds were really comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. Most of the fixtures in the bathroom looked new or at least the seals around them were new. I also liked the novel idea of offering hotdogs and cookies at 5:00 p.m. every day. It makes for a nice quick meal if you don't feel like getting out.
Cons:One of the first things I noticed was that there was random specks of blood on the outside of the tub, on a towel (stained, I think), and a big blood stain on the underside of one of the bed spreads. I left that face up for two days in a row before they either changed the bedspread or turned it around. There was also hair left around the base of the tub and on one wall of the tub. And the TV was completely smashed in the back. It still worked just fine. Too bad, other than those things, it was a great place.
