We had a snafu in our hotel reservation elsewhere, but Thronson's was able to give us an extra night, which saved the day. This is a fantastic location, near the Many Glaciers/Swift Current area of GNP. They worked hard to get us Wi-Fi. Note to internet addicts: just forget about trying to stay connected in this part of the world.... More

Location, location, location! The motel is located about 15 or so minutes outside of Many Glacier. My husband and I stayed one night. The accommodations were very basic for $100 + tax. Our room had a queen bed, just two pillows, a small fridge, a fan, a TV with one channel (DVDs were available for check out), and a bathroom... More

We loved the atmosphere of this place enough to come back and stay here on our way out of Glacier Park. We stayed in Thronson's because it was hard to find lodging anywhere else near Glacier. We came back a few days later because we liked the off the beaten path feel of the whole small town. Thronson's was clean... More

Having stayed in several motels over the last few months, this was acceptable but certainyl didn't stand out from the crowd, especially given the price. Firstly, the room was perfectly suitable, large, and had a nice bathroom (and bath). Well aired, wooden floors. Amenity-wise, though, it was somewhat lacking. When the person in the store said to me that they... More

Overall, I had a good stay at Thronson's. You can't beat the location near the Many Glacier region of Glacier NP. The room was very minimalistic, but it was fine for our purposes. We were basically just looking for something convenient and inexpensive. The bed was comfortable. The shower was on par with a campground shower. I would have worn... More

The motel is a wonderful place for access to both Glacier and the Canadian park just across the border. Room 14 is a large L shape and has 2 queen beds, perfect for friends traveling together.. Having looked at accommodations within the park, our motel room seemed luxurious. The general store has everything you might need; why did I weigh... More

We stayed in a newly remodeled room with a wonderful tiled bath. After being cramped in park cabin and rooms, we enjoyed the bigger space and the cooler room(wonderful ceiling fan). Check in was great, we could have had DVD's if we wanted, and coffee and tea was available in the store.

The motel is nothing fancy but you can't beat the location. Room was clean and had necessities. Not much to choose from outside the NP facilities. Restaurant close by too and a breakfast spot across the street.

This was perfect for our needs, the perfect place to crash in the evening after a day of hiking. We visited the store a few times for some things that we needed (snacks, ace bandage, etc). The staff was very nice, and the room was very clean. The location of the hotel was perfect as it provided good access to... More

It is the only game in town. The check-in is at the general store next door that has the atmosphere of a 1950s country store. The room is simple and clean. The crt tv has only one station and there is no internet. The bathroom is small but functional.
