This Motel stays in uptown Butte and it is very comfortable very clean and people that work there are very kind and caring I've never been into a city that a stranger opens the door for you or even helps you out to your car with your takeout with not even knowing you Butte Montana
I recently had occasion to stay at Hotel Finlen. I stayed in room 157. The bed was awfully soft, the tub/shower diverted did not work sending most of the water to the tub, and the bathroom sink filled up with waste water. There is no thermostat in the room so you have to manually adjust the radiator vales both in the bedroom and in the bathroom. It is also located in a run-down section of Butte.
Heard neighbors being intimate. Loud & clear, complete with thumping headboard. Serious concerns about many outlet extenders and power strip under desk. Teeny room. Room for two nightstands but only one provided. Really bad pillows. Screenless window is the only ventilation. Smoke detector doesn’t appear to be functional. Funky smell in corridor. Still use cut key room door locks and no deadbolt. All this splendor for $150/night! Pretty sure we won’t be back.
Extremely noisy. Tv in next room, loud street traffic, people yelling after bars closed at 2:00 am, doors slamming, etc.. Downtown is mostly deserted with shuttered stores. Hotel is a shadow of it's former glory. Couldn't find an open reataurant. AVOID!
Nice historic hotel in the downtown area. Our suite room had a separate living area with fridge and sink. Walked to restaurants and bars although some were not open due to COVID . We were disappointed that their on site bar was not open for our nightcap due to renovations but we had been informed of that prior to our stay.
Car broke down and had to spend 2 nights. 1st night, room was average, 2nd night, room was below average would not have picked it if car hadn't broken down. I guess I had high expectations with the $200 price tag
This hotel’s lobby is gorgeous. Our stay in the attached motor inn was a well stocked, clean spacious room. We will stay here again the next time we come into town. The price of the room was roughly the same as other same quality hotels I thinks.
The Finlen is Butt'e's historic hotel, built in the late 1920s. We thoroughly enjoyed out 2 night stay there. The front desk staff (especially Holly) went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. Professional staff makes all the difference! The comfortable king room met all of our needs. Food and drink options are within easy walking distance. Looking for a hip, modern hotel? Well, the FInlen might not meet your expectations. If you are looking for a step back in time, personalized service, and a great downtown location, then the Finlen will most likely be a good choice. Heads and shoulders above the run of the mill chain lodging down by the I-90 freeway. And once again, thank you Holly!!!
I booked four nights here months in advance with the intention of going hiking and seeing the stars in Montana. Unfortunately our visit was during the time of the wildfires so it was incredibly hot and the sky was never clear. The reason I mention this is because we had to spend more time in our room than usual but this hotel was so cool that it didn't bother us at all! Floors two and three are for the hotel rooms, and anything above that is residential. We were in a suite at the end of the hallway on floor 3. The lobby is massive so even on floor three you're up high and have a nice view of the valley and mountains. The suite is actually two rooms put together. The room door that the bed was in was unlocked so make sure you check your locks. The bed was super comfortable and…
This is a grand old hotel in what was once a thriving city of 100,000. Butte and the Finlen have seen their better days but if you want to experience Butte as it was, the Finlen is a good stop. The bed was great (we had two in a two room suite with two baths), the place is built so solidly that we didn't hear any noise. They've added AC with an in room unit. Lobby is grand. Fun place to stay and experience Butte.
