This was a great place to stay. Very clean with enough room to move a little. Loved the pretty planter out in front of the rooms/cabins. Great location too. Glacier National Park and all of its glories is right around the corner!!

Traveling on a motorcycle long day and it was over 90 degrees all day, Needed to secure a placing in the West entrance area. Called this place, they had a vacancy. When we checked for $ 114 US a night we found that rustic was the theme. No TV, No Phone but after riding in the heat for 10 hours...

I have been staying at this motel for over 45 years. It is very convenient, rooms are clean and staff have always been wonderful. This year my sister called in a reservation for two rooms for August 7th. When we got there they didn't have the reservation. They did however give us on of their new larger rooms with two...

We completely understand this place is a Motel and as much you should expect to get a motel, which we did. We thought we would get at least a clean room. It started out with us taking showers (we had been hiking all day and were very sweaty). My husband went first then I did. After I dried off I...

The room is basic, that's okay but the room smelled musty and we had to have a window open at all times. I felt sick and stayed out as much as possible, considered sleeping in the car. The mattress was old and soft. You could not even turn around in the shower, it was that small. No outlets to plug...

It wasn't what I expected. It was too rustic for me. I didn't like that they were still using bedspreads that wasn't clean regularly. Luckily, it was hot so we kicked off the blanket which didn't seem clean to the touch. I found a dirty paper plate in the drawer of the night stand. The bathroom was clean.

This place is billed as West Glacier Resort. It is NOT a resort, but definately the LAST RESORT! Small, cramped rooms and the smallest bathroom and shower I have EVER seen! No coffee maker, no refrigerator, no air conditioner, no microwave. The room could have been cleaner (we found hair on the blanket when we turned down the bed)! The...

I rarely leave a negative review but unfortunately this place earned it. The first night, we slept well but the room was too warm. As you have read before the rooms are very small, just a queen bed and the bathroom. Both were clean. However, we were able to hear the man in the next room snore. Ice was offered...

This was the most disappointing place we stayed on a two and a half week vacation to the National Parks of the Northern Rockies. The reservation was made by phone and the nice lady said we would have a unit on the bluff which is quieter and cooler. The office staff is really nice and helpful. The room is adequate,...
