About Rocker Inn Hotel

Welcome to the Rocker Inn, a 47 unit motel located in Butte, Montana

After a brief period of time operating under a franchise, we have returned to our roots and are doing what we know best, operating as an independently owned and operated business. Something we have been doing since 1984.

The Rocker Inn is located in Southwest Montana along the Continental Divide, at the crossroads of I-15 and I-90. We are located 3 miles west of Butte, Montana, the “Richest Hill on Earth” a city rich in mining history, architecture and cultural diversity.

The Rocker Inn is economy lodging from a price standpoint but our rooms present a contemporary, boutique impression. Our custom made furniture, accented by our Butte history photographs will provide you with a clean, comfortable atmosphere.

The Rocker Inn is 100% smoke free and is pet friendly. Please browse our updated photographs and feel free to book with us on-line ot through the Rocker Inn website. Bookings can also be made by calling the Rocker Inn direct and when doing so, please be sure to ask for the special “AB” discount.

Rocker Inn & accommodation


A hotel is an establishment that provides paid lodging on a short-term basis. Facilities provided may range from a modest-quality mattress in a small room to large suites with bigger, higher-quality beds, a dresser, a fridge and other kitchen facilities, upholstered chairs, a flatscreen television and en-suite bathrooms. Small, lower-priced hotels may offer only the most basic guest services and facilities.

Larger, higher-priced hotels may provide additional guest facilities such as a swimming pool, business centre (with computers, printers and other office equipment), childcare, conference and event facilities, tennis or basketball courts, gymnasium, restaurants, day spa and social function services.Hotel rooms are usually numbered (or named in some smaller hotels and B&Bs) to allow guests to identify their room. Some boutique, high-end hotels have custom decorated rooms. Some hotels offer meals as part of a room and board arrangement. In the United Kingdom, a hotel is required by law to serve food and drinks to all guests within certain stated hours. In Japan, capsule hotels provide a tiny room suitable only for sleeping and shared bathroom facilities.

A bit of history

The precursor to the modern hotel was the inn of medieval Europe. For a period of about 200 years from the mid-17th century, coaching inns served as a place for lodging for coach travelers. Inns began to cater to richer clients in the mid-18th century. One of the first hotels in a modern sense was opened in Exeter in 1768. Hotels proliferated throughout Western Europe and North America in the early 19th century, and luxury hotels began to spring up in the later part of the 19th century.
