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.

Timbers is clean, quiet, and a good value in a great location - but it's a little long in the tooth, and it shows. The bright side is that management is working the problem. The old TVs are upgrading to flat screens, one set of rooms at a time (if this matters to you, ask when you make the reservation).... More

Thank you for writing a review and for identifying two of our current upgrade goals. We hope to upgrade at least half of the motel with new 40 inch televisions and memory foam mattresses this season. Flooring and bedspreads are also areas that we are upgrading. With such a short season it is financially difficult to upgrade all at once,... More

I had stayed here once before and found it clean and affordable. This time I was put in a room that had a heavy smoke odor, like the bed spread had never been laundered since the motel had gone non-smoking. The sheets were threadbare, carpets dirty and frayed, I was nearly scalded in the shower when someone on the line... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry that we failed to provide you with a positive experience. That is certainly below our own standards, and over the years we have worked hard to solve many of the issues you experienced. As far as I know, the motel has never allowed smoking in the rooms....

The room was very clean, the staff was exceptionally cheerful and helpful. The beds were not particularly comfortable, however for the price it was not bad. We did not eat breakfast there, or use the hot tub. Would stay there again for one night if nothing else was available.
