We were in Helena for a Family Bowling Tournament. We picked this hotel for the location to restaurants, shopping and the bowling alley. The pool was a true heated pool. The attached casino was a plus also. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.

Stayed here on our way back from down south. Hotel was situated close to the interstate, easy to access, clean rooms, friendly staff, right price. Only thing - wifi in the room was not good at all, but did fine without being cyberly-connected.

Our stay started out disastrous but ended up all right. First room was terrible but when complained to front desk they changed it. Was a nice room however was over the bar so very noisy until closing of the bar

Great stay great rooms very clean very friendly staff All Around great place to stay the hotel has great amenities a pool hot tub and friendly bar staff I very much enjoyed my stay with the Howard Johnson

This is an older hotel, but the rooms are decent. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good with waffles, toast, biscuits and gravy, cereals and coffee/juice.

Haven't stayed in a Howard Johnson for many years. Found facility somewhat tired. No particular problem with accommodations. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast above average, with multiple hot items.

The staff was very hospitable, friendly and knowable. The room was comfortable and clean, though it could use more lighting. Reasonably priced. If I'm ever back in the area, I'll definitely choose this hotel first.

The bedspread was filthy! Stains and cigarette burns. I didn't feel comfortable sleeping on the bed. I wonder how old the pillows were.

The hotel is an older hotel with easy access off I-15. It is located close to other amenities and is more reasonably priced. The rooms are comfortable and reasonably clean. The hotel staff are great and helpful. The internet was vasriable in the room but did work better closer to the hall.

I had a group of rooms reserved. The manager I had spoken to did a nice job of grouping our rooms together (23+rooms). Some rooms, however, were missing phones, lamp shades were broken, and some rooms seemed like they were tipped. The heater did not work in all the rooms. When checking out the lady checking me out did not seem real happy to be checking out a group....the man helping her said, "It is almost done." referring to our group being done. I was not impressed. She allowed others to check out on my credit card from our group and when asked for a total of the hotel expense she said she did not know. She did not offer to add them up . I did add them up on my end to make sure I am charged the right amount on my card, The hot breakfast, biscuits and gravy, were not very good. They did open the breakfast area for us to use during our night meeting....that was nice,
