Wonderful experience for the area. The location was nice and very clean with rustic cabin features. A small refrigerator would have been nice for drinks and fruit but then it is a rustic cabin. I would stay there again in a heart beat.

We stayed in a room with a queen bed. Walked in off the street to book site unseen. I thought $90 was ok for a queen room. The only thing the room had was a bed. No fridge, no tea or coffee, no TV, no wi fi and only 1 available power out let. The shower was difficult and conditions... More

If your goal is park time, hiking, and enjoying a quick entrance into the park everyday, this is your place. Basic, rustic accommodations for those who are not looking for an upscale lodge. We stayed here to sleep, and enjoyed the outdoor picnic area for early morning eating. No refrigerator or coffee pot here, but you are next door to... More

That's about all I can say for the amenities. Rooms are very old with cypress plywood paneling, a shower so narrow it was hard to turn around, no TV or wifi, but there was a fire pit on the property and it is next door to a cafe. If all you want is a very basic rustic place to sleep... More

We understood this would be a bare bones motel but expected a little more. Clean but grungy at the same time. Very firm beds. Could hear people talking behind us. Barely room to turn around in the shower stall and no hot water the first morning. Made us pay for the second night we had reserved when we checked in... More

Wasn't sure what to expect with the mixed reviews, but we found the cabins to be really great and would recommend for families with realistic expectations. Perfect for families of 4 or less (I think they have one larger cabin too). For starters, they were clean. The beds were firm, the kitchenette stocked with pots, plates, utensils, etc. Rooms had...

Pros: The motel is centrally located right outside the West Glacier national park entrance with an okay but pricey restaurant and general store right next to it. Cons: The motel does NOT provide Wifi. There is no mini fridge or microwave or coffee maker or TV in the room. The bathroom is tiny and there is no room to put... More

We stayed in one of the cabins on the hill. Very nice, very quiet and beautiful scenery. It's very close to the entrance to Glacier National Park and there are many amenities in West Glacier. I highly recommend staying there.

You can pay more in the park, but don't expect the amenities of big resorts in more populated places. If you want to experience staying in a (I'm guessing) 1940's era cabin, this is your place. Yes, the room is small but adequate. The windows open for a breeze and a fan is provided which was rather delightful. No tv,... More

There aren't many choices where to stay while hiking in Glacier NP, and this motel's location is its big advantage, but its lack of comfort spoils the overall vacation. The rooms are extremely small with a tiny table and chair, no closet. In the bathroom, there's not even a hook or a small shelf to put toiletries on. The water... More
