Any other location, this hotel would be considered minimal at best. But as other reviewers have mentioned, you have to grade on a little different scale when it comes to in park lodging. Our room at the Swiftcurrent Motor Inn was clean, functional, comfortable, but very, very outdated. But the only time we spend in our room while at parks... More

National park hotels are in a class by themselves because they make up for their typically outdated and limited amenities by being located in a spectacular setting. With that said, the Motor Inn was a step below other national park lodging we've stayed at. We spent a week in a motor inn room which was the most expensive option available.... More

Took a trip to Yellowstone and then to glacier last year. Upon visiting Glacier had a friend tell me to go to Many Glacier. We went there and extended our trip another night to stay at the Swiftcurrent Inn. I loved it. We were only able to do a couple of small hikes. So I had to plan and go... More

We stayed two nights here at the heart of Many Glacier, which is the best part of Glacier National Park, so the location is unbelievable. There are many trails right next to the cabin. The cabin was clean and spacious, but the bathroom and toilet are common and it was like any other public restrooms, kind of okay. There is... More

Setting is picturesque and the staff was very helpful. The rooms are basic national park fare, electrical outlets were at a premium. No A/C, but fans are provided which were fine in mid-July to keep the room comfortable at night.

Beautiful setting and the staff were very nice. We were in the "inn", not the cabins. The room was pretty rustic although we did have a very tiny ensuite bathroom. The room was pretty small with two double beds, each pushed against opposite walls and a desk/chair. We were on a two-week road trip, which meant we had a bit... More

We stayed here in late June at the beginning of our Glacier/Waterton vacation. We booked late in February and the only option for our family of four at that time was a room in the motel section. We found the beds to be very comfortable, the shower water pressure strong, and the surroundings quiet. The front desk staff were helpful... More

We stayed in a cabin last week and loved it! The walk to the restroom was not bad and the token shower (provided in the rental) lasted 8 minutes. The twin beds were very comfortable and we enjoyed the mule deer roaming through the compled. The Swiftcurrent gift shop and restaurant are mere steps away and also very nice. HOWEVER,... More

This property is a good low budget option if you want to be in the park. The cabin is very small with one full-size bed. My husband and I stayed 2 nights. Because the website and Trip Advisor reviewers described it well we knew what to expect. We were very comfortable even when it rained all day (took a three... More

We stopped for dinner and enjoyed a pizza at the Italian restaurant. Our server was great. Food was hot and cooked to order. Service was fast. I enjoyed it so much we returned the next evening. We ordered a large mushroom pizza it was only $14.00 which is cheap for this area.
