We always stay here when traveling between Montana and Nevada. I Love the quaint, old hospital-the rooms are adequate, very basic, shared bath. The staff has always been helpful and friendly and the breakfast is amazing!

This inn is right in the middle of town. The place is rather run down, but there are seven pools that are different temperatures. Nice place to spend a couple hours.

Was given room 4. It had a double bed, a small corner dresser, a night stand and a small chair. There were two community bathrooms across the hall. No t.v., so very relaxing. They have pools on both sides with live music at night while...More
