9.7 Excellent

Bed could be a little harder.

5.1 Passable
Staff was friendly. Close to grocery store and easy to get to shopping. Room except for bed seemed clean.

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 Excellent
Room was clean and quiet. Staff excellent. Breakfast good. I will stay here again. A real bargain


8.2 Great
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 Great
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!

Didn't like the double beds, prefer a queen, but was manageable. Bedspreads were a little dated.
