Not worth the price you'll have to pay!

We travel ALOT, but this may be the second review I've ever written, & only because I felt it necessary to share my experience.The grounds, outdoor appearance, & main lobby are beautiful. The parking lot is a pain to maneuver through & needs redone. I was fine paying the $170 per night at this point (which was extremely high for a hotel room in Helena, Montana).This would lead one to believe their room would be amazing....not so much.Firstly, upon checkin, I asked if they offer military discounts...yes! They do, which would bring the room price down to $115+tax. BUT...only if you book directly through the hotel & not through a third party, like Travelocity (which I did, of course). Okay, fine....whatever. We stayed in Room 240, which initially looked to be okay. Upon spending time in the room, it was found to be an attempted version of a remodel or update. Some of the trim in the room looked to be painted by a toddler, several pictures on the wall seemed to be from the 80's (not in a nostalgic way), there were no drinking glasses near the sink for brushing teeth or taking medicine...had to go find coffee cups elsewhere in the room for this. However, the beds were comfy & nice, with the exception of finding a black hair (not ours) in one of the beds. Other than that the room was pretty clean.The ice machines were a long way away from our room. But the worst part of all, the A/C quit in the middle of the night, making it difficult to sleep.I cannot recommend this hotel for $170

The hotel staff was warm courteous and helpful from checkin to checkout!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
I found the room was very comfortable. Breckfast service was great as well as the food selection. I also had room service a few times. Fast and the food was good. Had a few cocktails in the lounge. Friendly wait and bartending staff. Having a pool was a plus for me. And I found the shuttle van a real help. Lastly, I left a pair of shoes by mistake. The staff located them and returned them by mail. All in all I had a very pleasant experiance at this hotel.

One of the best places to stay in Helena.

This is one of the best two places to stay in Helena. Our stay was interrupted by a roofing crew very early on a Sunday, yes Sunday, morning. We planned to sleep late. They arrived prior to 8 A.M. and started tromping around and scraping-off old shingles almost immediately. It sounded like the roof was going to crash in around our heads at any moment. We were not forewarned. The hotel did comp us a free night's stay, which was the only saving grace.

Great Value

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
Whenever I am in Helena, I stay at the Red Lion Colonial. Great rooms, good food and wonderful staff - each time & every time. Other hotels close by, but do not waste your money
