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...

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...

We found the Finlen on route to Glacier from Yellowstone and opted for the Motor Inn due to the convenience; we could park right in front of the room and be in and out quick. The 14 hours we did stay in Butte were full of historical architecture, interesting joints to eat and drink, and a huge copper mine. The...

We enjoyed staying at this classic hotel. However, the bed left a lot to be desired. It was too soft, swayed with each movement of myself or my wife. The noisy street outside was a distraction at 2am with motorcycles and loud drinkers from the Acoma bar. Glad we stayed but would not do it again at $87.74.

Thank you for staying with us. We are sorry to hear that you did not fully enjoy your stay. The street noise can certainly be a nuisance in the uptown area, it is something that we are actively addressing with our community leaders. We appreciate your review as it lets us know where we can be improving our guest's experiences...
