Very clean and excellent social distancing practices. Comfy room and nice staff!

The Colonial has always been well-known in Helena even before the Marriott chain took over. With the remodel throughout you get the modern touches and updates which compliment the unique layout of this hotel. The grand staircase you see upon entering I hope Marriott chooses to leave untouched. This has been used for decades for photo ops from weddings, family reunions, prom pictures and so on. The service is a delight from the front desk to the friendly drivers that will pick you up at the airport and take you anywhere within Helena proper at your leisure. Hotel was spotless throughout. The maids do a great job caring for the rooms. No complaints and I highly recommend a stay at the Marriott Colonial over any of the other hotel chain in Helena.

We loved this hotel! You can tell that the building is old, but it’s very well updated. We splurged a bit for the “premium” room, and it was totally worth it. My only complaint about the hotel is lack of free breakfast, but not a huge deal. Probably one of the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept in, in a hotel.

The entire staff makes the guests feel welcome; front desk staff, bar staff, shuttle drivers.....amazing!

Very nice Hotel.. Friendly staff, great facilities & what it had to offer... the only negative was that the thermostat.. could not get the temperature to were I wanted it... had to set it 10 degrees higher just to get it close to were it was comfortable...

Front desk staff was un helpfull they all so run the little store inside and charge you different amounts for items. We got a ice cream cone 1 day for 3.50 the next day is 5.00. U ask questions about the hotel and they don't help you. Like we had a loud barking dog next door. We asked to be in a smoke and no pets room when we called ahead of time and they assured us.

Disappointed that pool and hot tub were "under remodel" construction.

Comfortable beds. They are currently remodeling so may be uodated soon. Good breakfast.

The Colonial used to be the best place in Helena to stay. It is now one of many second tier choices. The restaurant has a good breakfast buffet, and a great Sunday brunch. The rooms are comfortable. The two pools are average. The overall value and impression of the hotel is average.

Location was close to the only pediatric Dentist in this area of Montana and the room was a perfect recovery refuge after my Granddaughter's procedure. Thanks!

Great location on or off freeway. Easy to get in and out of with a boat.

Just a short 2 day road trip for fun. We had not been in that part of Montana and wanted to see it. The hotel was clean and nice for the price. Everyone was courteous and helpful.

Nice place, close to airport

Would be nice if breakfast was included

The hotel was within proximity to everything we needed and the staff was very friendly. The rooms were cleaned nicely and quite early in the day. All in all, enjoyed the hotel. We thought that the fitness room was subpar and the weekend buffet was less than desirable, but the food off the menu was good (if they are serving off the menu).

Large room, clean and quiet. Free Internet access. Restaurant was very good. Excellent value for price.

The Red Lion Colonial is a nice place to stay in Helena. It is conveniently located near the capital and other downtown locations. The staff was friendly and helpful. The shower head in the bathroom is very low and I had to duck to get my hair wet.

First, we discovered that the in-house restaurant closes at 1pm on Sunday. There was no room service Sunday night either. Other hotels do this, but I hate it. Second, we found our room had not been vacuumed very well because we found dried food on the carpet. The bathroom was not hotel-clean either. My wife noticed a small amount of mold in the bathroom. Third, the hotel left bottles of water in the room. Ordinarily, that's a good thing... except that each bottle cost $2 (to be added to the bill). To be fair - they DID put a card on the bottle explaining this (the cost was at the bottom of the text) - but I've never before seen this approach to selling bottled water. When you're thirsty, who reads the fine print? Fourth, if you want to use the indoor pool or (small) exercise room, you will have to walk through a medium-sized conference/dining room. No kidding. There is a waist-high half wall on the left side to channel you to the back of the room and keep your towel from touching the place settings, but you are still in the same room. Swimmers will undoubtedly feel self concious and business meeting participants will undoubtedly be distracted by bikinis and sweaty exercisers... Fifth, the 2nd floor level changes an inch or so when you go from one of the wings to the main building. The carpet does not give you a good visual cue and you should be careful not to trip. None of these things made the visit horrible, but their cumulative effect made me not want to go back.
