We stayed here while working in the park. There is nothing fancy here, but the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The bed was firm and provided for a good night's rest. The room was clean. We were able to plug-in our diesel truck, although only a few outlets are available. Friendly staff!

I made wo separate reservations for 4 nights as follows: January 23, and Feb. 6 and 7. I have been charged $88 twice as a deposit for the 2 reservations. When I tried to check into my room on January 23rd at 7:30, no one was in your office for me to check in. I came back several times between... More

Two friends and I recently passed through on a quick trip to Canada, and were planning to camp up in Ft. Macleod, but ended up passing through miles and miles and hours and hours of rain and sleet and snow, and by the time we made it to East Glacier, we decided it would be best to look for a... More

Loved how quiet and spacious the cabins were -- and there's a kitchen! We were only there one night (and just used the oven for some frozen pizzas after getting back late from a long hike), but can't wait to put the kitchen to better use next summer. And the porch! Would most certainly recommend staying there.

Glacier national park is one of the most beautiful places you'll ever see and the Circle R cabins are a great place to stay while you're visiting. You wake up with a great view in East Glacier and are right next to the park. Also--the inside of the cabins are extremely nice--you won't do better while you're in town. I... More

The cabins are spacious, clean and have the most incredible view of the mountains in almost every direction. Their location is just outside of town, everything is walkable or a 2 minute drive, but it was great to have such a quiet, relaxing vacation home to return to after hiking. It was so nice to watch the sunset on the... More

We made reservations with some trepidations, based on the fact that the Circle R was at the bottom of the list in East Glacier. So we were pleasantly surprised to find we had a large room, a very clean bathroom, and a very comfortable king-sized bed. It is next to the railroad tracks - so is almost everything in East...

In East Glacier we found the Circle R Motel. Our room was huge, large bedroom, bath, living room and a full kitchen (pots, pans, dishes, silverware and etc.). The bed was comfortable and the AC worked well. We walked a couple of doors down the street to the market and bought a fresh cut steak and the rest of the... More

This place has cabins which are just super! They're back off the highway and away from the rail lines = quiet! The scent of wood greets you upon opening the door. Behind the cabins is a pasture where lively horses roam about. The cabins have everything you need - full kitchen, satellite dish TV, comfy couch & bed, large bath... More
