The Top Hat served to break up our drive across the state. It was basic but clean and accepted our dogs and was economical. The trains were frequent and noisy but think they would be pretty hard to get away from anywhere in Ritzville. The room was a bit chilly but didn't bother us. All in all good value for...

I enjoyed the motel. It was clean and fresh. I was greeted warmly. There was a nice hot shower in the morning on an icy day. The new flat screen in the room was nice. I'd stay here again! Put this motel on your great value list.

We were road weary and decided to stay at the Top Hat Motel after reading ratings on Trip Advisor. We arrived at 4:30 pm and were the only guests there. The room was not ready for guests - towels had to be retrieved from another room, there was no soap or cups in the bathroom, and the room was heated...

I do apologize for having to retrieve towels for you while u stayed with us, as our pipes had froze and I had to take all laundry off site to be washed getting towels from another room was way faster then going to pick them up, I was only trying to make your stay here smoother and more accommodating during...

Had a decent room here but to use wifi a walk down to the office is required for a connection. No problem with the facilities apart from incessant train hooters through the night so take earplugs! The owners were having a rather loud domestic when I woke up so I made a fast exit.

The building is older, but the 2 rooms we reserved seemed clean, quiet, and we had a great night's rest. For the price, the rooms were well equipped. No local phone in rooms which did not matter to us. No breakfast. The manager was absent when we arrived with a sign directing us to a phone number to call. She...

Stayed here for one night as we were driving from Oregon to Montana. Although the hotel is close to the train track, we were in a back corner room and we did not hear the trains. The rooms are modest but very clean. We'd definitely stay here again on our next road trip to Montana.

The train comes every hour but I had earplugs and it was fine. We spent one night here with our dogs and it was fine. Small town and good vibes we felt safe. Small parking spots though for bigger trucks it's tight. Room was clean and comfortable. Good value.

Had to stay here due to a car mishap. The girl at the desk was very helpful. Lots of nicer treats, like top of the line shampoo, soap. Basket full of oatmeal, microwave, fridge etc. She didn't even charge me for my pet. Recommended a great reasonable place for breakfast, For an older motel it was probably the nicest I've...

Stayed in this hotel for 1 night as part of a road trip. It is a typical motel, nothing very special. A bit dated, but clean. When we arrived the room was boiling hot as the aircon wasn't on and we couldn't get it to work properly. But the lovely owner helped us out and then the room finally cooled...

It's an old motel. You know that when they give you a real key to open the door. Of course, you already knew that when you drove up or when you saw the picture on Trip Advisor. So don't think for $61 a night you're getting a room at the Hilton. But you are getting a great room for the...
