Every vacation needs to be complemented with the perfect accommodation. Montana certainly offers a wide scope of different hotels to cater to all needs. The three main options you have at your disposal are; luxury hotels, budget hotels, and bed & breakfasts. Read on to discover a little bit more about each in order to help you find the perfect place for your stay.
If you are looking to treat yourself with a lavish vacation, a luxury hotel is a must. Undoubtedly, this is the most expensive option, yet what you get in return makes it worth it. Furthermore, you won’t pay extortionate amounts, the luxury hotels in Montana are actually reasonable in price – especially when compared to hotels in other parts of the United States.
What sets luxury hotels apart from the rest is the sheer number of facilities and services available. There are many that have won awards for their restaurants and standard of food. There are those boasting elaborate and high-quality golf courses. Additionally, there is an extensive array of spa services available and a wide scope of fitness facilities too, including gyms and swimming pools. These hotels are also best for people going to Montana for a specific celebration, such as a wedding. They go the extra mile to pull out all the stops.
You get some of these hotels in the prime locations, like hotels in West Yellowstone and hotels in Glacier National Park. Most of the plushest hotels tend to be situated just on the outskirts of Montana. This offers an ideal location in the eyes of most. You get to be near to some of the states most popular cities, but you also benefit from residing in somewhere peaceful, so you get away from the hustle and bustle too.
Budgets hotels offer accommodation for those seeking the cheapest alternative – a good way to save money when going on holiday. If you are strapped for cash yet still want to enjoy a holiday, this is the best option. Nevertheless, ‘budget’ does by no means mean shabby, there are some lovely budget hotels in Montana.
Budget hotels offer the bare minimum. Your rooms will offer basic facilities and will be of simplistic style. The hotel will boast little-added facilities and services. Most will have a hotel bar and restaurant, and in some, you will have the added treat of a swimming pool. Young people tend to prefer this option as they view their hotel as merely a place to sleep and nothing more, whilst families and couples often want more from their accommodation.
Budget hotels are also good if you are only staying in Montana for a short space of time, or if you do not intend to spend a lot of time in the hotel itself because you are going to be busy exploring!
Bed & Breakfast
And last but not least, you have the option of staying in a bed and breakfast. Individuals like to stay in these because they are generally family owned and, therefore, there tends to be an added level of care and attention to detail. This is a good option for those who like home comforts.
What can you expect? You’ll essentially stay in a home. Therefore, you will benefit from your room, and the only further service is revealed in the name; a breakfast. Aside from this, there is nothing more provided in the form of facilities or services.
The great thing about bed and breakfasts is that they tend to be evenly situated all over the state. Therefore, you can benefit from staying in some of the lesser known areas, whereby luxury hotels and budget hotels are scarce if this appeals to you.
Hopefully, you now have a better understanding of the main accommodation options that are available to you while visiting Montana. As you can see, there are plenty of great places to stay and it all comes down to determining what you truly want from your hotel!
