Families looking to stay somewhere convenient and affordable during their time in Missoula should consider this Hilton Garden Inn. Located right off I-90, this hotel features a plethora of family-friendly amenities, including an indoor pool and hot tub, as well as spacious and clean rooms. Relax by the gas fireplace in the lobby in the midst of your adventures, or take a cup of tea back to your room and rest your eyes for a little bit. The Missoula International Airport is less than 10 minutes away, as well, so you can be checked into your room and onto the next journey within the blink of an eye. Check-in is 3 p.m. and check-out is noon.

Nice property but rates were excessive and out of line with a place that is a try thru location to other longer term venues.
Very disappointed in rooms and services....again they were average...not worth $185/night

Great clean and friendly motel. We used the phone check in which was super easy and fast. Picked our room and came to the front desk to pick up keys. They were professional and friendly. The room was room but no pull out couch. We got the 2 queen room for 3 people. The bathroom was super clean and very nice. We prepaid for breakfast for 3 people. Otherwise its 9.95 extra per person . Well worth it as they have a chef making omelets and breakfast burritos or a buffet. We loved our food but the girls could be friendlier. Other than that we enjoyed our stay. Oh, parking is very limited so come early and walk to the nearby restaurants within a few mins walk.
Indoor Pool and Hot Tub
After a long day wandering around Missoula, families are sure to enjoy a visit to the hotel's indoor pool and hot tub. A fitness room is located onsite, as well.
Families are invited to enjoy breakfast each morning at the Garden Grille restaurant, located right next to the lobby. Options include eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, fresh fruit, and yogurt. Made-to-order food is available, as well, including omelets. Open Monday through Friday, 6 to 10 a.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 6:30 to 11 a.m.
Blue Canyon Kitchen & Tavern
Located right next to the hotel (literally a short walk through the parking lot), is the Blue Canyon Kitchen & Tavern. Menu items include soups, salads, flatbreads, steaks, seafood, and meatloaf. Open daily for dinner, 5 to 9 p.m.

The Art of Smart Timing
In our opinion, Missoula, Montana is a four-season vacation destination. However, the summer and winter seem to be the most popular seasons. The Clark Fork River is filled with kayakers and fly fisherman year-round, and Montana Snowbowl is a quick 10 miles away, where families can mountain bike, hike, zip line, and ski.
Missoula International Airport is under 10 minutes from the Hilton Garden Inn Missoula. Please note, however, that there are limited direct flights into this airport. The most common connection seems to be through Denver International Airport.
We recommend renting a car to get to this hotel and around the city of Missoula in general. Sure, the downtown area is walkable, but this hotel is definitely a drive down I-90 from there.
