Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Charliered Room quality
The rooms, esp. the bathrooms, are starting to get tired and could use a refurbishment. The rooms, bathrooms and hallways at the Holiday Inn Express in Browning, MT (about one year old) are much better than this hotel.
As a business traveler, I appreciated the plethora of electrical outlets and the location of this hotel within Missoula is very good so I remain a repeat customer despite the cons.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pginSF nice place, but crazy shower!
this is a nice, clean, friendly and convenient property - everything was easy and good - EXCEPT - the shower was installed wrong - the plumbing is backward, so you almost shut off the water flow before getting any hot water; the day I arrived it was -14 degrees outside and I was really looking forward to a hot shower.
The bathroom sink let me know that there was hot water in the hotel, but I could figure out how in the world to get hot water - there is no signage or anything to help you out.
Finally figured it out, and asking at the desk early the next morning as I was leaving, the clerk said it was "European style - Folks really like it..." That's hogwash - I've been to Europe several times and have never seen that.
Otherwise, great place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FisherQueen Always happy here
I stay at the Holiday Inn Downtown at least once a month in the winter. The location is perfect if you are doing business at the University, and it's close to a number of good restaurants, although I rarely eat anywhere else than Brooks and Browns. The burgers are reliably good, the drinks are good pours, and the bartenders and servers are all friendly. The only thing I don't like is the lack of a complimentary breakfast. All the Missoula North hotels have it, and most of the 2.5 star hotels in town do as well. The hotel dining room breakfast is too ordinary to pay for, and so I always end up grabbing something at McDonalds. But nonetheless, I have a choice of hotels, and this is the one I choose.
