pMissoula is a beautiful small city located in Montana at the juncture of three separate national parks and five mountain ranges. Missoula’s natural beauty makes it a popular stopping point for tourists heading to the national parks or for a hike up one of the mountains. Located in a small valley, there’s almost nowhere in Missoula where you can see the horizon without being blocked by a mountain.

For hikers and backpackers, Missoula is a pit stop on the way to one of many natural paradises. It’s also the last stop in the northern US on the way to Canada—beyond Missoula, there are only Indian reservations, national forests, and minuscule hamlet towns. In a way, Missoula captures the feeling of being on the frontier by virtue of its remoteness.

Where can I book a hotel?

Missoula has hotels in two concentrated areas. One of the areas is at the foot of Mt. Jumbo, and the other is located at the juncture of highway 90 and highway 93. If you’re visiting Missoula, you have a car or have rented a car, so the exact cluster of hotels that you choose to book in doesn’t make that much difference.

What prices are hotels?

Hotels in Missoula tend to be just under $100, though you can easily spend over $100 if you opt for a hotel room with a lot of amenities. Hotel prices in Missoula are relatively static year-round, and are typically the same throughout the city, so there aren’t that many deals to be found.

The summer season may make it a bit harder to book a room, so plan accordingly. If you do decide to travel to Missoula in the summer, be aware that there are many insects. If you plan to visit Missoula during the winter, you should bring your heavy winter clothing, as the area gets extremely cold and windy thanks to its position in the mountains.

What kinds of hotels are there in Missoula?

The types of hotels in Missoula can be summarized as:

  • Chain hotels
  • Motels
  • Local small sized hotels

Most hotels will have similar sets of amenities like free breakfast, free Wi-Fi, maid service, room service, and some may even have pools and gym facilities, though these are not the norm. The best hotels that you can find in Missoula will be three-star hotels, so expect average but unimpressive rooms which are kept clean.

Can I book a specific hotel/hotel brand?

As far as your brand options in Missoula, your choices are limited to a small handful of domestic low-market motel and hotel brands, a few Marriotts and Holiday Inns, and various other mid-level chains. You probably can’t have your specific hotel preference, but there’s a high chance that you’ll be able to get your second or third choice, so don’t worry.

Missoula is a small town surrounded by the overwhelming nature that covers Montana. Historically it was a logging town but is now mostly a college town. I stopped here on my way to Glacier National Park and found it to be an interesting stop.
