Hallway smelled strongly like a dirty diaper. A/C in room was weak, though the provided desk fan helped a lot. Small room, beds comfortable though. Bathrooms renovated real nice, a bright spot. On-site restaurant permanently closed. Cheap for area, but you get what you paid for.

I loved this hotel so much I ended up booking a 2nd night. I loved the decor and my room and bathroom was top notch. I actually booked here because I didn’t want to pay $100 for a room, and this place was a bit cheaper. Plus it’s pet friendly and I had my 2 dogs with me. It would’ve even been worth a $100 a night. It’s located in their downtown area so there are eating establishments within a few minutes driving. If I am in this area again, I will definitely stay here again when I need a room in the Billings area.

Don't do it it's not worth it. The parking lot was under construction and we ended up getting parked in by two trucks blocking the end of a one way. Our other option was street parking until 8 am. And that's when we should have known to leave. But we didn't because we were tired. We checked in and the desk lady seemed kind enough so we went up to our room. Upon examination we found that there was no AC option and we couldn't open windows because someone was smoking directly outside of our room and I have asthma. Still tired we decided to get ready for bed. Well, we open the toilet lid and it was filled with urine, used toilet paper and hair. We optimistically tired to solve the problem on our own and just flush it, but the toilet didn't function or flush. I booked through travelocity so I contacted an agent with my concerns. He said he tried to call the hotel TWICE and no one answered. I expressed these concerns to the front desk and they told me "I hired a lot of new people. I'll see who cleaned your room" It sounds like no one did. Maybe hire more better people.

It isn't being kept up. Bathroom had mold in shower. The Air conditioner wasn't working. Property owners put fan in room instead of moving my room. This reservation was booked on July 19, 2021. Plenty time to get AC fixed!!
