We wanted to stay in the historic district and walk around after being in the car all day. Our room was in the motor court part of the motel. The room was clean and very retro. It was also priced way too high for this style of room. There is no lounge or breakfast available. Pretty bare bones accommodations. Next time we’ll save the cash and stay close to the highway.

We stayed in a motel-inn room. It was nice and comfortable. Very good bed. The bathroom had good water pressure. The location is good for historic Butte, but the area was surprisingly Calmeyer. There were very few options for dinner within walking distance, and we didn’t find anywhere open for breakfast in the morning. The lobby in the hotel was lovely and well preserved, but the bar was closed and there were no breakfast possibilities. The area was good for walking though if you want to see the buildings in the center (many quite beautiful)

Staff was fantastic and the rooms were VERY clean; whole hotel is well loved and it shows. Stayed in the historic tower. Bed and pillows were comfy. Great downtown location, walkable, close to good restaurants like the new M&M and North 46. Would stay here again!

I stayed in the Motor Inn side - check in was fast and easy. Dining options are limited - and options close early. Great Bar on site - they infuse their own and it is YUMMY. Bartenders were Fabulous!! Room was very clean and bed was very comfortable. Loved Butte and will definitely stay here again.

My coworker stayed in a boring chain hotel, but I jumped at the chance to choose an interesting historic building instead. The Finlen isn’t for everyone, lacking some of the amenities of newer hotels, but my room was very clean and everything in it worked. I was also able to take some nice walks around uptown Butte, something I can’t do in modern hotels on the outskirts of a town. The daily maid service was a nice touch, unlike many other hotels using Covid as an excuse to take housekeeping service away. The front desk staff were courteous and helpful. If I have reason to return to Butte, I would definitely stay in this unique time-warp hotel again.

Lovely historic hotel that has been loving taken care of. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Rooms were authentic for the time period with updates without taking away the charm. Within walking distance of choices for restaurants and bars.

"Coolest retro mid century motel" Actually meant rundown in need of an entire rebuild. What made it worse was pipes hamering when other rooms used toilet made sleep impossible. When complained ignored, with no acknowledgement.

Atmospheric period hotel in the historic copper mining town of Butte in Montana. The hotel has original period features and is in the centre of town. Butte has a preserved historic centre with lots of interesting buildings. It is well worth visiting.

This is historic Butte at its best! It is an old beautiful building, the front desk is always friendly, and I can't recommend it enough. This isn't a fancy hotel, but it is the real deal. If you're visiting Montana, this is where you should stay for a Montana experience. Tap 'er light folks!

Great spot. Old hotel that they have turned in to apartments except the first 4 floors. Walk to may bars and restaurants. Well renovated. AC added to rooms. Easy parking. We had a suite with a living room. Only one potable AC but was fine. Loved the place
