Thunderbird Motel, Missoula
I locked my keys in the car and service was amazing. She went and looked for a wire hanger for me and kept asking me things making sure we were fine or if we needed any more help.

Great place
Large room with very large Jacuzzi tub in room, friendly people. Good location.

Won't stay here again
The motel is very run down. The hot tub water was gross and there wasn't even enough water to cover the jets. No towels in the swim area and no staff around to ask any questions. I had previously stayed here 3 times in past years but it has definitely degraded to the point that I will never stay here again. The price was extremely overpriced for the accommodations.

Not what you think
Not the most clean hotel I've stayed at. Picture an old motel six but in worse shape.

An acceptable place to lay your head
Very nice staff in the evening and the morning though they seemed a bit tired and over worked. The parking was really tough with options of parking behind the motel by the apartment units (and then lugging luggage around the length of the building to get in the front) or next door at the Albertson's shopping center which certainly did not feel very secure. The room was as expected, no complaints beyond hearing the train whistle several times during the night (probably true for all hotels in this area though.) The breakfast was really nominal-donut holes, Fruit Loops, pastry out of a box, and coffee. No one was going to starve but not very memorable. I guess, for the price, I expected one step above a Motel 6 and it really was one step below. Clean and "ok" but not very special.
