4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

I had the pleasure of staying in what is now their "old" building but didn't get to stay in the brand new building yet, but the assured me it should all be open for the 2015 season. I plan to return to see. I got to look at the room at least. The room I was in had 2 queen... More

This is a decently priced property in a pricey area. The hotel has a newer section (we were in the older part). Our room was well-furnished with a cold fridge, microwave, decent beds. The room cooled quickly, which was important after a hot day on the Harley. The front desk attendant, a nephew of the owners, was very helpful. When... More

We stayed in the newer part of the motel and was quite pleased, although, one thing was they didn't have an ice bucket in the room, but everything else was very good. King size bed was real comfortable. Nice size tub and shower. Yes, Amtrak is right across the street but was not a problem at all. Fridge, microwave and... More

Circle R is open year round, unlike most motels in East Glacier which makes it a great place to stay after other places have long shuttered their windows and doors. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was comfortable and clean. Even though train tracks are across the street, the sound wasn't a problem. There is even... More

We stayed at the Circle R Motel several years ago and were in a nice suite which included a kitchen and living area as well as a bedroom and bathroom. We thought we were getting the same type of accommodations. To our surprise, when we arrived, the motel had been remodeled into standard motel rooms. Upon checking in and going... More

Circle "R" Motel is located right on Hwy 2, across from Amtrak Station. The noise level is tolerable, although coming to the National Park, one expects some peace and quiet. The room itself was quite spacious and clean, microwave, fridge, coffee machine, hair dryer, wall A/C - everything worked; nice hot shower (but it looked like someone used shower curtain... More

Not all that happy with this place. NOT BECAUSE OF THE PEOPLE/SERVICE, they were great. Room - OK. Seems to be a retrofit of a old room. Never got a option for a single bed, had to pay double bed rate - not good. WiFi - very poor. Only got to work for 6 hours in 2 days. Employee had... More
