I am sorry that we didn't have water. We had no control over the water being off. The water main burst in front of the motel. The city of Bozeman turned off our water and that was not our fault. We are terribly sorry you had to use water from your car to clean up but like I told you,...

We reserved a room here, because we needed internet... and only because we needed internet. When we arrived we were told the internet hadn't been working. We asked for our money back and the owner refused. So much for customer service. Go somewhere else... anywhere else.

My family was here for the 4th of July and we had a great stay! They had a great BBQ for all the guests. The rooms were comfortable and cute. Staff was really friendly. It was nice to stay at a place that wasn't a chain but a great American motel. Would come here again and again!!!

Overall great experience! This motel is a little outdated and not up to modern amenities but for the price you can't beat it!! The staff was unbelievably nice and accommodating. I was shocked to find out there was a complementary breakfast! It was American owned and everyone spoke English which is a plus! If your looking for a cool motel...

room smelled horrible, like cat urine, and the air conditioner smelled like mildew. We tried to air the place out, but the smell made my wife sick. We couldn't even stay...so we left without spending the night and they wouldn't give a refund.

Stayed 1 night in room 111. Rooms are old but comfortable. There is a pool onsite and rooms have fridge and microwaves. Location is central close to shops and restaurants. We had a good nights sleep before hitting the road. Breakfast was better than expected.

It's older and a bit worn. I mentioned a handful of things that needed to be addressed. The lady at the front desk wanted to jump on them right now. None of them were critical, so I passed. But right attitude. Pretty clean, bad comfortable. Overall a decent option.

I have never had this happen in my many travels, but this hotel canceled my reservation because they could not get ahold of me!!!! They do not take AX at all and I used AX to hold our room on booking.com. I did get a email two days before our arrival at this property, telling me about the credit card...

You booked your room on 5/20 with Booking.com which advertises the only credit cards we accept is Visa/MasterCard/Discover. Which also states a 10% deposit will be charged on the day of booking.

My fiance and I are driving cross country from Anchorage to Florida. We stopped to spend the night here after staying in Glacier a few days. Just outside of Bozeman we started having some car trouble and actually had to spend an extra day in Bozeman for repairs. Our car even leaked some in the parking lot, and my fiance...

The motel was interesting; bringing me memories of the 1960s. The customer service was aloof but managed to help with arranging for a night's stay. The walls consisting of concrete blocks were interesting to see. Again, it brought me memories; my wife, son, and I talked about the motel from time to time. We were on the way to Seattle...
