Missoula Hotels

A number of Missoula hotels near the Missoula Airport offer free parking when you stay with them for one night.  The cost of a one night stay at a Missoula hotel can range from $100 and up, depending on the time of the year.  If a person is leaving for a week they would leave their car at the hotel while they are gone, and use the hotel shuttle to and from the airport.

One Missoula Hotel, in particular that calls their service “Park n’ Fly” is the Wingate, which is on Airport Boulevard (less than a mile from the Missoula Airport).  The Wingate is one of the nicer hotels in Missoula, and a great place to stay with children because of their indoor water park.  The Wingate’s rates range from $90 and up, depending on the time of the year.  If you are taking a trip and choose to stay the night at the Wingate to “save money” there are some important things that you need to be aware of.  First, your car will not be parked at the Wingate while you are gone, but rather will be parked at Copperstone Storage which is  2.1 miles from the airport.  Copperstone Storage is a very secure storage facility, and your car will be under video surveillance the entire time you are way.

The process to have your vehicle in a secure location while you are away may not be too convenient to some travelers.  You will have to drive to Copperstone Storage, park your vehicle on their dirt lot, and then jump on the Wingate shuttle to get back to the Missoula Hotel.  Then in the morning you will board the shuttle once again to get to the airport.  When you come back you will board the Wingate shuttle again and get a ride to your car at Copperstone Storage.

If you are gone more than 7 days, the Wingate will charge you an additional $3 per day.  So now you have paid the Wingate your nightly rate of, say $110, plus $3 for parking.  A 14 day trip will cost you around $131.
