Whenever I stay in Helena I stay at the Great Northern. The staff is friendly, professional and knowledgeable. They are so helpful and willing to answer questions I have, whether it had to do with the hotel or local availability of dining, shopping or points of interest.The hotel is clean and I find the decor tasteful and enjoy the pictures...

I recently stayed at the Great Northern because it was the location of a conference I attended. I have attended many conferences here in the past, but this was the first time I actually stayed at the hotel. I usually stay elsewhere because the Great Northern can be a bit more pricey. However, on this visit, the price was in...

I am a frequent guest at this property as it is ideally situated for conferences. This time out, my room wasn't as clean as I am used to and the breakfast service was terrible. I really like this hotel but they earn 5/10 for this stay. Desk staff however is excellent and exceptionally helpful.

Stayed for one night. Best Westerns are dog friendly, which is one of their biggest selling points. The quality of BWs is not uniform unfortunately, but this was one of the better ones. Nice rooms, on the bigger side, nice pool area. parking was fine and breakfast was adequate. A pleasant if not memorable stay.

No problems, clean room, quiet, good staff. Breakfast was good, huckleberry BBQ Bison burger was good too. Parking was a bit difficult as I had to park in a 2 hour spot for a while that would have been enforced in the morning but it wasn't a problem as I was able to move my vehicle a few hours later...

Dear jasonkW2968OM - thank you for taking the time to leave a great review about your stay at the Great Northern Hotel on Trip Advisor.

I have always been treated well at the Great Northern, but this time front desk and management staff went out of their way to fix a booking problem that would have left me looking for a new hotel in the middle of the work day. I appreciate very much that they just took it upon themselves to make sure I...
