Montana is a heck of a big state. If you find yourself getting weary as you approach Butte, call the Finlen Hotel, and cross your fingers that they have a suite in the old hotel available. Comfy beds, great bathroom...high ceilings. Pretty romantic, but if you have little ones? They'll love the sofa/bed in the extra space-their own TV! Seriously,...

The finlan is a great place to stay. Easy access to my family. Love the historic features of the building. Will definitely stay again. Great restaurants and coffee shop within walking distance. They have maintained the integrity of the building beautifully.

There is limited accommodation in Butte. I spent a night here because of its high rating. The restaurant was closed (this at 5 PM), the room I was given was in need of a sprucing up, the towels were half sized and the TV was tiny.

Thank you for staying with us. We are sorry that you didn't find every aspect of your stay satisfactory. The Finlen doesn't have a restaurant on site, so I am unsure of what you are referring to that was closed. The bar that is onsite is open every day except Sundays and holidays at 4 p.m., but it is not...

I love the history that tied this place to many golden artists spend their night here while performing shows when Butte was full of people, miners, money, it was like Vegas and New York together! It is sad that the city has not longer economic activities and it became somehow into a ghost town.

Driving cross country in early November is a good time to travel and find some inexpensive but beautiful hotels. The Finlen was the nicest surprise we had on this trip. A local restaurant within walking distance was also another great find. ( forgot the name but the desk can tell you). Definitely would recommend staying in the old part of...

We stayed at the Finlen on Saturday, February 18th. We were in Butte to attend the Irish Rovers concert. Unbeknownst to us, the time of the event was incorrectly listed in the Lively Times as starting at 8:00. The desk clerk at the Finlen asked me if we were in town for the concert when I checked in and then...

Thank you for staying with us! We are glad that you were able to get to the concert on time, our desk clerks try to stay on top of the local events. We do apologize for the noise, being in an urban location we unfortunately cannot control the noise level from the local bars. We hope to see you again...

The main reason for our trip to Montana was to visit the Finlen Hotel - we had a great stay and a great visit with the owner. Comfortable room, clean, updated but still retained its old charm, convenient

We were 2 nights in original hotel. We were on the parking lot side. It was quiet, very nice. A beautiful hotel. Very nice staff. Priced right and great location. Lots of parking. Close to some good nightlife and restaurants.

Hotel got decent reviews and the price was right. We stayed in the motel section since we needed a refrigerator and the hotel rooms with a fridge were at least $20 more for the night. Room was basic, but somehow about perfect in the layout. The coffee was in the lobby, but it was good coffee, which was nice. We...

When the Finlen Hotel was not available, I settled for the Motor Inn that shares the same parking lot. Either way, it would be like time travel back to the 1920s or the early 1960s. Like much of Butte, both these properties have character and is vintage. The Motor Inn was clean and everything worked. The walls were painted concrete...
