We stopped by here for a night after a week's camping in Yellowstone. And boy, did we sleep well! Honestly, it felt like a home away from home - the rooms are very spacious but also cozy and well appointed. The owners were very welcoming and you can tell that they've put a lot of care and attention into making the place feel really homely. The beds are really comfortable - and the sheets were genuinely some of the softest sheets I've ever slept on, and in fact my wife, her sister and brother in law all thought they were such soft sheets that we had to ask the owners in the morning where they'd bought them from, so we can buy our own.

Had everything else you'd expect - a good sized fridge and a microwave, fast internet and a hot shower. There's also a little bar/grill down the road which does an excellent breakfast.

Much better value than similar motels we looked at in Red Lodge, worth the extra few minutes drive time from the park in my opinion. Overall, highly recommended!

The Botts Family Motel is run by (surprise) the Botts Family. A couple of years running we have dealt with Margaret as our host when we visit for a family reunion in the area. She is a pleasure to work with and couldn't be more accommodating. She and her husband are working to improve quality of the stay and we have not been disappointed. The rooms have been redone are very comfortable and they are painting the outside of the buildings. I would certainly recommend their establishment if you're staying between Billings and Red Lodge.

We travel to Joliet every year for a family reunion and always stay at the Botts Family Motel. It was previously the Joliet Motel and Espresso which year after year got worse and worse. Since the Botts family took it over it has gotten better and better. The room we stayed in is very large with a cute Ski-Theme. The beds were extremely comfortable, there was a new big screen TV with big, comfortable high-backed chairs and a big refrigerator.

Margaret was a wonderful hostess. We got stuck in Salt Lake City, spending a tough night in the airport and was not able to contact her until almost midnight that we would not be staying at the motel that night. I would have fully understand if she would have charged us for the night as a no-show but we were not charged. As it is, the rates are extremely resonable.

Joliet is a cute little town and conveniently located between Billings and Yellowstone. It is also close to Red Lodge.

We very much look forward to staying there next year!!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 9 which was quiet.

If you are in Joliet, or nearby Billings, Montana, this little motel is a winner. It is family owned and staying there felt comfortable and like I was at a cousin's house. The owners were genuinely friendly but not intrusive. The room was clean and well appointed with everything we needed and more. The sheets were divinely soft. There was a huge TV which we didn't turn on but the card said it got a whole slew of channels. Downtown, or what there was of it, was close and we enjoyed an evening stroll through the streets and alleys. All in all, this was a great place to stop and rest our road weary feet and have a delicious hot shower. You won't regret a low key, comfortable, and clean stay here.

Room Tip: We stayed in #9 and it was lovely.
