The Vista Motel looks like it dates from the 1940's or 1950's. Wood paneling inside the room, no tv or phone. But, the owners are very personable, and they recommended the Belton Restaurant nearby (wonderful place!). The room has a fan for summer and a ceramic heater in the wall for chilly weather. The location is just down the road... More

The view is lovely, but it's hard to enjoy because of the noise. If you were any closer to the main road, you'd be roadkill. And if the thunder of trucks and cars weren't enough, the trains thundering by just yards away are enough to prompt a search for more ambien. The rooms are spartan at best--bring your own soap,...

My friend and I stayed at the Vista Motel at either end of a backpacking trip to Glacier National Park. The motel has a lot of nice little touches for a no-frills budget motel. The rooms are very clean and showers are stocked with a soap-shampoo-conditioner dispenser. The motel has a separate breakfast/reading room that features fresh-made muffins and coffee.... More

This motel is awesome. Very rustic and laid back, with a nice covered outdoor area that is perfect for watching the sunset on the mountains. If they added a jacuzzi, it would be heavenly. This place is perfect for those who don't need thrills (except jacuzzi thrills).

We stayed in Cabin 23. We arrived around midnight and the staff left our key taped to the door of the office. The cabin was perfect for our needs. A queen bed, room to set up our pack n' play, refrigerator/freezer, bathroom. The decor is outdated but we're sure you're probably going for the scenery in the park & not... More

The location was great, just outside the park, but we felt the price was too high for what they offered, or didn't offer. There was no air conditioning in the room - we stayed in cabin 1 - they had 2 fans which didn't help much. The temperature was close to 90 F! The room was clean, and did have... More

The room was small but quaint. The room was very clean. The bedding and sheets were of great quality and extremely comfortable. The shampoo, conditioner and body wash were in dispensers in the shower so you don't have to try tap little bottles like squeezing water out of a rock. There is also a nice sitting/gathering area to meet the... More

My wife and I used this motel as our staging location for three days in Glacier and couldn't be happier. We had a room that was disconnected from the main hotel which made it feel like a little cabin (room 20). Wifi is only in the breakfast area, but not a big deal.
