Not bad, a little worn down. Breakfast was great. Pool was awesome. Pet friendly. Location was a bit sketchy, resonable diner with in walking distance.

Nice hotel. Great location right in downtown. Will stay again.

I stayed on the way to Glaicer National Park from Yellow Stone National Park. Good place to stop. Nice room. Couple bars around. Full fresh breakfast.

We were booked into a newly renovated room . Took front desk 3 tries to find a prepared room but turned out fine. Quiet , warm and clean. Breakfast area hard to reach thru construction and cold but very pleasant and accommodating staff.

Hotel was nice and clean..and surprisingly quiet for being downtown. Had a good, comfortable night of sleep.

well as of the time of booking it was actually an Econolodge. they actually charged my card the whole weekend fee, unlike other places ive booked recently. it has definitely seen its days. pool leaked into the lower parking garage. the new owners could hardly understand or speak English well. the AC in our room only had one speed. no light switch to immediately turn on when opening the door. we have a no smoking room, yet the house keeper stood out back at top of stairwell with the door open smoking a cigarette, just sucked right into our room. had to walk a million miles to get to breakfast and unlike what the website said, there was no Pool/billards and no restaraunt/lounge downstairs to use. very dissapointed

Slept well and staff was great. Rooms were clean and it was located a short distance from where we needed to go.

We have stayed here several times and have not been disappointed.

We arrived at 10:30 pm at left at 7:30 am because we were in town for a specific event. The hotel was okay, downtown, not close to anything and we hadn't eaten. So no dinner that night. There was no parking in the parking garage so we had to park on the street. Plus it was close to a bar and we could hear it until we turned on the air conditioning unit. It was convenient and the hotel accommodated an issue we had with the reservation. Breakfast was simple, but good and free.

Room was very clean. With micro-wave and fridge in the room was a bonus. Don't expect to much on the free b'fast. Overall for the price, this is a good place and good location.

Needed housing while attending funeral of family member. Easy to find, nice facilities, and pleasant stay. Tthank you.

Hotel is wxtremely hard to find. Parking to check in is at the top of a steep downhill ramp on a blind corner. Staff looked like they had just gotten out of bed and were annoyed to have to be "helping" us. Alarm shreaking in the background "Somebody dialed 911 again". Handicapped room too far to walk to, so stayed in a regular room. Bland, dumpy, seedy room. Was so glad to get out of there the next day!

Comfy bed, good water pressure in the shower. Outdoor pool a little cold, but fun. Wished for a hot tub. No room service, but free breakfast at the Tap House was good.

Great value for the money. Nice location--close to airport, stores, a public park, a Post Office and ease of access to main road(s) and under ground parking. Enjoyed the breakfast vouchers, heated pool and quiet nights.

This was our first stay here and we'll probably stay here every time on our way south now. The front desk staff were great, the parking was great - underground and cozy, and the room was perfect. This was the largest room on our holidays- comfortable with a really nice bed. We would definitely recommend this hotel and we will stay here again!

just fine nice just one nite easy to get to and clean

clean room, comfy room. Staff was great to work with and super friendly. Location is great right next to the river and easily accessible.

hotel staff was more than friendly------they gave me a room by the pool,it was quiet,more than clean people in great falls montana are the most friendest people i have ever came across and beleive me i have done more than my share of travelling----my wife and i had a very relaxing weekend----keep it up great falls ,montana a lot of history there and the weather was just lovely roger and shirley

We stayed at the Quality Inn at Spokane, WA, and were very impressed. This one in Great Falls was a DIVE. The room was so dirty we wondered when the bugs were going to appear. The staff were mosy helpful. \when we arrived, the room we wantged was not available, the next oned had not been made up. \the State Fair was in Town and we were comparing our accomodation with the animals and felt that they had cleaner accomodations. Never, ever again. Don't think we will ever go back to Great Falls.

spent one night on my way up to Canada. Good and clean, nice staff. Especially liked having a parking garage for my car.
