Old Style Charm or Run Down?

Posted 21-Jul-2016
This is a hard case to decide. It has that old style charm, not another sterile cookie cutter hotels. But sometimes that translates into simply run down. Like the electrical outlet up against the bed with no plate and wires hanging out. The staff were great. The location is in hotel row, good for travel, not so much for seeing Helena. Cleanliness was fine.

I only needed the basic amenities for my stay, which included a bed, bathroom, and a desk.

Nice hotel with plenty of parking

Posted 7-Dec-2015
Pros: hotel and room were clean and tidy
Cons: serving food in the bars
just over a mile from !15 with lots of parking, hotel has a bar on site and casino ( slot machines ) small pool and the hot tub was out of order, good bar and grill across the street serving good food at a reasonable price, hotel staff were very good and helpful, would stay there again.

Helena is beautiful. This hotel, however, wasn't

Posted 27-Oct-2015
Overall wasn't great. Ancient TV. When I came in one of the pillows was destroyed. Very cheap quality place. I've stated in worse, but I have also stayed in MUCH nicer for around same price.

Great Hotel for the price.

Posted 9-Jun-2015
Pros: The hotel lobby was really nice.
Cons: The pool needs to be less warm and updated.
Location: Great location, within driving and walking distance to dining places and not to far from Wal-Mart.
The hotel was great, the only thing I had a problem was the pool was way to warm. Other than that we had a pleasant stay.

middle of the road

Posted 17-Jan-2015
Pros: The employees were helpful and friendly, the location was nice, and it wasn't crowded.
Cons: The building and rooms could use a remodel.
Location: Really close to the interstate (I believe 15) and fairly easy to get downtown. Downtown Helena is nice for food and bars.
I stayed at the Helena Howard Johnson for five nights. It was cleaner than the super 8 that was across the street, but definitely had a motel feel to the room, rather than a hotel feel....if that makes sense. My room had an older tv (worked fine just not a flat screen), the bed and bedding were older (went and bought two pillows from Kmart), the maids cleaned my room everyday and did a good job, the pool/spa was older and kind of forgotten about, and the hot breakfast was ok (had those tiny bagels/formed egg patties/biscuts and gravy. The bar, Longhorn Saloon, was nice and the WiFi worked well except for the last day I was there. The employees were very nice and helpful, but the hotel could definitely use a full remodel.

Good location, poor quality

Posted 3-Aug-2014
Cons: Clean the rooms
The hotel was close to the capitol and reasonably priced, but the room was very dirty, i didnt use any of the towels, the sink and bathroom were dirty.
