We stayed at Thronson's on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. I was surprised to see a vacancy sign up. You have to call them to make a reservation and you don't get a confirmation. We enjoyed our stay in this older motel. Everything was clean and comfortable. Yes there is only one channel but the lady at the general... More

After riding the motorcycle for 4 1/2 hours in a thunderstorm we were VERY happy to arrive at this cute little motel. We arrived after the 9:00 check in deadline but since we had called ahead to let them know, it was not a problem. The room had a queen bed in the main area then a separate queen bed... More

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. The... More

What can I say? It's dry. There's a bed. The TV got one channel, barely. The shower is 24"x24", but with remarkably good water pressure. For $110 plus per night, they'd never get away with it except for the utter lack of competition. I almost felt like I was infringing on the locals when I was there (which I suppose... More

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
