Used Shelby as jump off point from Amtrak en route from Chicago to Seattle for week long sidetrip touring Montana. Stayed at the Sherlock Motel first night off a 3hr late train and Mark was at the station to pick us up with our luggage at nearly 10pm, and then drop us back there a week later after giving us...

On our way back to Canada we decided to stop for one last night in the US. Looking up options online we opted for the Sherlock Motel, and were not disappointed. It was a nice, comfy place to spend the night. For a longer term stay we would have liked a fridge, but as it was just for the night,... More

This older motel was very comfortable for us as we needed to recharge after a busy week driving around Yellowstone and Glacier National parks. Our double queen bed room was quiet, clean and furnished with a table with four chairs, a loveseat, fridge and microwave, coffeemaker with shelves and a small bureau. The main street of town was a short... More

We usually make it south of the Canada/US border a couple times a year and it's usually in the evening by the time we get there, so Shelby is a good town to put up for the night. The Sherlock Motel doesn't have the convenient "book it online" option, but what it does have more than makes up that. They... More

Clean modern room, coffee in room, AC worked great, great price. Owners are very nice folks, always there to help when needed. This was not the first time we have stayed here and it will not be the last time either. We go to Shelby once a month to do shopping and this is the place to stay for us,... More

There is no comparison with the chain hotels... The Sherlock wins hands down. The hospitality provided by this family run motels is absolutely the best.. Clean rooms, linens, bathrooms and all the amenities... But the best part is the owner who is more than delightful and goes out of her way to make your stay a great experience.

Simple as that. Mark and Sonya make you know you're safe, that you can rest, that there's a perfectly comfy room, and bed for you. The Sherlock is clean, wall to wall and floor to ceiling. You can relax, completely, walk to stores, restaurants, bars, you can people watch in the shade. Because you're fine here, and you're welcomed. Every... More

This is a no-frills motel, close to the main street and away from the railway tracks where some other accommodation lies. No breakfast is provided. The owner Sonja gave us a good welcome, an excellent recommendation for dinner, the Frontier Restaurant, and a less good one for breakfast, the Griddle

We choose Sherlock Motel based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were looking for a less expensive alternative to the the high priced chain motels. The room was clean, but had lots of flying bugs. While we're not creeped out by bugs, we were a bit disappointed, because this motel has so many "excellent" ratings. In all fairness, due to the fact... More

After reading reviews on Tripadvisor, I decided to stop here with my two kids on our way from Yellowstone to Glacier NP. We arrived very late at night and the awesome owner, Sonja, was waiting up, concerned for us. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The mattresses are newer and we had a great nights sleep. Retro is a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Open seasonally June thru September.. Older, well-kept facility. Making sure our rooms are clean, cozy, and comfortable is our number one priority. Our customers tell us that our free WIFI is excellent, and they really like the gourmet coffee service in their room. Be in the middle of it all. We boast the closest access with a level walk to downtown dining, shopping, and nightclubs with casinos. We're just a short block to the latte shop and only grocery store. Our facility is situated in a quiet residential setting, but conveniently located between major churches, mortuary, and courthouse. See you soon! ... more   less
