Book a room at our Holiday Inn® hotels in Billings and explore Montana's Big Sky country. Before long you'll be driving the Black Otter Trail Scenic Drive, a cliff-face route overlooking Billings and the rugged mountain ranges beyond.
Our hotels in Billings put the best of Montana culture at your doorstep. The craggy, arid landscape of Billings and the Beartooth Mountain Range beyond has inspired artists for centuries. The collection of regional art on display at the Yellowstone Art Museum ranges from pastel Montana landscapes and the stirring cowboy paintings of Charles Russell to contemporary horse sculptures by Deborah Butterfield. The Western Heritage Center re-creates the culture and conflicts of Montana’s native Crow residents and the Western pioneers who displaced them. The focus at ZooMontana is on wolves, elk and other native wildlife you may encounter in the Montana wilds.
It’s a short drive from our Billings hotels to Montana’s stunning natural attractions. The Black Otter Trail Scenic Drive skirts the edge of the rock face above Billings, offering panoramic views of the city below and the rugged Beartooth Mountain Range to the southwest. Fly-fishing enthusiasts cast their lines for trout when they aren’t mesmerized by the beauty of the sandstone cliffs, weathered evergreens and rushing Bighorn River at Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area. Closer to our hotels in Billings are Lake Elmo State Park, a family-oriented location for boating, fishing, swimming and picnicking, and Pictograph Cave State Park, the cave walls lined with ghostly red-and-black paintings of 4,500-year-old warriors.
Book a stay at our Holiday Inn hotels in Billings in spring, when the city’s MetraPark opens a new season of roping, riding and wrestling rodeo. Or come in October, when the Billings Bulls launch a new season of ice hockey.
