Amazing pool and location close to Glacier National Park. The front desk staff was courteous and helpful and went above and beyond to provide a map and helpful trip details. The hot tub was also amazing.

After a rough start with a noisy air conditioner it was fixed perfectly and quickly. This establishment is very clean. People are very friendly. A worthy stay. Be prepared for soft beds. The is no breakfast offered. However less than a mile is the Pocketstone Cafe. It has a wonderful breakfast selection.

First the positives : the motel in conveniently located on route 35 and is close to the cute little historic downtown of Bigfork, it has a beautiful pool setting outside, it has a lot of parking and the continental breakfast is nicer than a lot of these small independently owned motels. The not-so-good : the walls are paper-thin... One of... More

Hotels in Bigfork tend to be pricey. We stayed a night at the Timbers Motel because its room rate is relatively reasonable. It's a basic motel, grounds are well kept and quiet. A quick summary: Pros: Location, easy access from the highway and a 5-10 minutes walk to the park area and main street of Bigfork. Reasonable rate, don't expect... More

This motel is the best kept secret in Bigfork! The price is extremely reasonable compared to all the amenities the owners provide. The rooms are spacious, very clean, with fridge, microwave, safe, coffee maker and all the small things that make a big difference. Breakfast and snacks at the main desk. There is a small swimming pool on the grounds.... More

Timbers Motel in Bigfork, Montana was outstanding. Rooms were cleaned promptly, continental breakfast excellent offering a roll, waffle, oatmeal, as well as a good cup of coffee. The motel is old and somewhat 1960s nostalgic but it offers a clean pool, a patio & gazebo offering outside table and chairs. It is a modest hotel with modest prices and I... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review. We appreciate the opportunity to serve you and we are thankfully that you found our motel to be outstanding. I think you are right that the Timbers Motel is somewhat nostalgic. For me, it comes from the quiet location, relaxing outdoor pool, and our small, caring staff. We also... More

The location is perfect for attending the theatre or just for enjoying the area. The rooms are ice and clean, the beds are good and the pillows ok. It is an easy walk to the Bigfork Playhouse and the nice artsy and trendy shops in town. It is also within walking distance of the lovely river walk.

The timbers motel was nice. Clean room, friendly and helpful staff. The pool was nice and warm and fun for my daughter and me. Wifi was pretty decent, too. I'd stay here again next time I'm in town - the price was right and it was close to the glacier west entrance.

I liked this place. Good location. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Decent cable, good AC. The staff were very nice. Could have used a bit more water pressure in the shower, other that that, I will be back.
