I was in the motel for a night- easy access from airport and fairly comfortable stay. The room includes two double beds, good size kitchen with dining space. The room was clean and the morning complimentary breakfast was good. I will stay again if I make a trip to Glacier National Park.

On the plus side, the staff was fabulous, and the motel is located about 30 minutes from Glacier National Park. **However** the room reeked of B.O. when we arrived, and the odor remained our entire trip. The carpet was so dirty I had to use flip flops. We asked for a non-smoking room, but it was clear someone had smoked... More

When we first booked this motel, we were a bit concerned. Even though the reviews were good, we had our doubts. This place, under new ownership for about a year or so and now called Western Inn was great. We expected a room with two double beds... instead, had two rooms each with a double bed. The place was clean,... More

Place was clean and tidy and breakfast good. Help very friendly. However, the wall tent for $55/night was pretty bad. The constant flapping in the wind was aggravating but the worst thing was the queen bed was a saggy air mattress (in a nice frame) so everytime one of us got up the other would sink down. Other than that... More

We rented what they call a B-double with kitchenette. This was a spacious suite with two queen beds in seperate rooms, these were linked a a good size kitchenette and table etc. The cost of this was £40,94 per night. Given the price of the very comfortable room, it was very close to the Glacier National Park, one could forgive... More

Be aware that you should book this hotel directly. The office person would not tell me how much the room would have cost if we had booked directly, but read other reviews. Next - don't ask for a single queen. We did and it was a big mistake. It seems that because people asked for 'single queen rooms they cobbled... More

I booked online, mistake. Online was $160.00 a night. Standing in the lobby while clerk answered phone, she tells the caller $128.00. Then hangs up and tells us oh I about gave your room up. NICE REAL NICE. Then she proceeds to tell us the property is smoke free. Nowhere online did it say this, so they herd you to... More

The Inn was very comfortable and the people were very accommodating. We were happy to be close to the park and to be able to get directions from the staff. we had a good nights sleep however, I did find a spider in the bathroom. ( Hey, it is Montana, so I expected snakes and such ).

We were greeted in the most friendly way when we arrived by the two staff working at the desk. They are extremely dog friendly and gave a us a doggy pack with a biscuit and a plastic bag dispenser for easy cleanup. The room was great, it had two beds in separate rooms so would be very family friendly. It's... More

I think the this place has another name. Western Inn. This was a very clean, affordable place. Casey the Manager was so nice and we felt like home and family. This would be so much fun to bring kids in the summer. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. I think the friendliness of the place pushed it over the... More
