Worth the visit given proximity to great trails. Our particular room was in the lodge house and it proved to be really noisy. We left one night early given the torrential rains and the noise. The staff was hugely accommodating as it was tough to have a good night sleep. Would recommend discussion in location of accommodations before booking. Also,... More

Great Park to visit and the rooms were in the popular area of Many Glacier. The rooms were reasonable and clean with easy access to the store and restaurant. Like a cruise, we didn't spend much time in the room. Just to let future visitors know, the motel does have mice. Not a problem, but you want to make sure... More

This was a great place to stay for hiking. The Ptarmigan Tunnel trail, the Iceberg Lake trail and the Bullhead Lake trail are close by. This is also the only place in the Glacier National Park that has a laundromat. We went up to the Many Glacier for most of our meals, they were all very good.

I wanted to stay at the Many Glacier Hotel, but wasn’t able to get reservations; so settled for our second choice, the nearby Swiftcurrent Motor Inn. I’m happy it turned out this way; we really enjoyed out stay. So much, in fact, that the only (small) complaint I had was the indifferent attitude of the young girl at the front... More

We have stayed at Swiftcurrent numerous times. Usually in the cabins, but this time we stayed in the Motor Inn. Xanterra took over the running of this property. As usual, Xanterra comes in and does a face lift, but doesn't address real issues. In general - my experiences with Xanterra run properties is middling at best. For $160/night - you... More

First off, you need to know there isn't cell service, internet or TV. If you need that don't go to Glacier! We stayed in the new cabins. One was a handicap unit and the other was a normal one. The handicap unit is rented to anyone when it is the last unit available. The bathroom is huge at the expense... More

We arrived around an hour before the official check in time and or room in the motor inn section was ready. The room was set off a small parking area among the trees and close to the cabins and the restaurant. In the evenings the Red Buses share the lot, so you can enjoy an up close look. We were... More

We stayed in room 27. Great view of a mountain when you come out of your room each morning. It had two double beds, a small table, a dresser and a bathroom. My top three wishes for a room is that it is clean, comfortable, and quiet. It was all three. We were at one far end of the complex... More

This property has both rustic cabins and motel rooms. I stayed in Motel 2 -- very nice (for a motel). Great location; adjacent to trails and a quick drive up to the Many Glacier Hotel. A friend advised to stay and Swiftcurrent and "hang out" at Many Glacier -- and I concur! Even though there were a lot of people... More

Swiftcurrent Motor Inn employees were friendly, quick, & happy to share their stories. Stayed in the cabins with my wife. Many Glacier Hotel was helpful & offered good service. We will go back in 4 years. The fires kept us away from Logan Pass & highline trail.
