No doubt this is probably the closest place you'll find to the Many Glacier area of GNP outside of the park. It's really no-frills with no wifi in rooms and one channel on the TV (but I think it's HBO!). Personally, I think at this point in our civilization, wifi should be a given. There is a fridge though.

This reminded me of the motels we stayed in when I was a child (and I mean that in a good way.) You must check in through the general store next door which is an old general store complete with screen door and metal sign and canned goods on the shelves behind the cashier. There is only one channel on... More

We needed a simple, inexpensive place to stay overnight after leaving Glacier National Park on our way to Waterton Lakes in Canada, and this turned out to be a very good choice. The motel was amazingly quiet, with little traffic after 7 pm, and the part of Babb where Thronson's is located turned out to contain a total of 5... More

This is a cute little place just a few miles north of St Marys. The price was perfect considering the area. It is a typical motel style. The room was good size we had room #21, and the second floor. It was very clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was good size, with good water pressure. It... More

We wanted a room close to the Belly River trailhead. This was just perfect. We stayed in room 10 which had 2 wonderful queen beds and a super nice bathroom. Everything was squeaky clean and comfy. I will stay again. Nice hosts and great little cafe across the street. What not to like?

Room 20 has a panoramic view that looks over a a snowy mountain in Glacier Park. Windows on three sides with a door on the 4th allows incredible ventilation. The room was very clean, the beds were comfortable and nice extras such as a table and chairs and refrigerator. A perfect place to stop for a night or an longer... More

We were looking for a place close to Many Glacier in Glacier National Park, so we could get an early start to hike the next morning. We drove through Babb and found Thronson's General Store. Driving up to the motel and looking at the outside, I was quite sure it was going to be dirty old room that would not... More

The motel met our needs and was a lot cheaper than staying in St. Mary. The TV only has one channel but they have a limited number of DVD's for free to watch. The carpet could have been cleaner but the rest of the room and bath were very clean. The restaurant across the street is owned by the same... More

I didn't stay at the Inn, we were at The Brown House in East Glacier Park, but we did stop in this little store and picked up some drinks and things. Babb is pretty much in the middle of NOWHERE, right south of the Canadian border, so the expectations are slim in this area. The store was as well stocked... More

We stayed there for a couple of nights while we visited Glacier. We had stayed there before so we knew what to expect. The price had almost doubled since we stayed there 6 years ago or so but then so has everything else in the world. They have done some improvements like new flooring, paint and the like. Desparately need... More
