We stayed at this hotel because we were in Missoula for a concert and, while the hotel was not super close to the venue, it suited our needs perfectly. The room was adequately sized and very clean, with comfortable beds, a decent sized TV, and many other amenities (coffee maker, microwave, and refrigerator). It is located within walking distance of... More

We booked well in advance, the day before we phoned to ask a question. They had spoken to us before, but now our confirmation # didn't work and we were told we didn't gave a room. We called Hotels .com to inquire, all of sudden they found our name and we did have a room. The confirmation # should've confirmed... More

We recently stayed at this Red Lion and were very pleased with the room and especially the hospitality! The manager informed us that they were remodeling the rooms and that they were working diligently at replacing out-dated air conditioners. In some rooms they had installed portable units while they were installing newer models. This is one of our favorite Missoula... More

I wouldn't go back to this hotel anytime soon! The grounds were littered, pool was dirty, air conditioners either didn't work or they had portables in the rooms. We stayed in several other Red Lions on our trip and this one should be rated 1 star while the others were 3 and 4 stars. If you want a good Red... More

Didn't love my stay at the Red Lion. It was a particularly hot day in Missoula and the AC really didn't work in the room, felt hot all night. The carpet was old and didn't feel very clean. Front desk staff were friendly and efficient but this place needs some work. Rooms are large. I only stayed one night and... More

We stayed here while on a long road trip. The room itself had been recently updated, which was nice. The bed was fairly comfortable and there was a brand new TV in the room. The bathroom we had was large because we ended up with a handicap room (that's all that was left). We had to drive a little ways... More

The room was nice but insanely hot because it didn't have A/C. The breakfast was good. I would only recommend at a discounted price. The front desk attendant wasn't very helpful when I asked about things to do in Missoula. The location close to downtown.

Our room was not clean upon arrival we found garbage under the edges of the beds and under the couch. The room also had a strong pet urine smell and felt dirty.

Just a few blocks from downtown, we made a stop here for one night. The receptionist offered a room without air conditioning for $70 which was a steal for this pricey area.
