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

There were dead and dying flies on the floor of the bathroom and the carpet of the room. I was unclear on whether there was poison somewhere causing this. The shower stall seems to be makeshift, the water in the bathroom sink doesn't drain, and the room is incredibly bare - 99 plus tax is a lot of money for... More

Motel has all you need if you came to enjoy the outside and use the room just to refresh and sleep. Be aware no reception at all and one TV channel.. I think that is bliss!!! Also we had to get rid of at least 30 flies before we could settle in... but they provide a fly swatter in one... More

We ended up here because our original plan to stay at the KOA in St Mary didn't work out as planned. I'm so glad we did. Unfortunately, there are not very many rooms available on the east side of Glacier, and prices tend to be higher due to that. We found this place through Trip Advisor, called and the only... More

Thronson's motel was functional but nothing to write home about. The room was clean but looked pretty dated- and certainly not cute like some of the other motels we stayed in. TV says it gets one channel (though we didn't try it). The one positive surprise was that the room had a mini fridge in it. So... don't expect anything... More

We stayed here the middle of August. The location is perfect for the Many Glacier area, Going to the Sun Road and Waterton Lake area. The room was very clean. The bed was very comfortable. There was a mini fridge and fan in the room. Across the street is a nice family cafe with good food and service. There is... More

Close to both st Mary entrance and Many Glacier. Rooms are like any motel rooms, nothing more, nothing less. A lot less pricey than hotels in the park so I would definitely stay there again if I go back to Glacier. Convenient neighboring store.
