Room 1 is a very small room with the door located on the end of the building. The room has no glacier or any other kind of vista. The room is clean. There are no blackout curtains on the window. There is a highway and train track in front of the motel and when the train passed, items on the... More

Neat, clean, and comfortable. A great place to stay close to the Glacier NP; about a five minute drive to the park boundary. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room, even though relatively small, had an exceptionally comfortable bed. Breakfast was toast, bagels, tang, and instant oatmeal. About two miles away is a very nice restaurant where fancier breakfasts are available.... More

The Vista Motel was a pleasant surprise as the online photos did not do it justice. We had Cabin 22, an adorable little cabin with lots of wood in the ceiling and a lovely, recently redone bathroom. It was very private and cozy--king bed. We had a little deck in the front to sit on if we wanted to and... More

The mini fridge was nice but beyond that it was a cheap motel room with a high end price due to its location to the park. The cheaper motels in the area do not have fridges at all. The service was very good but the breakfast was minimal still good though. Wifi worked in my room but not in others.... More

We are a family of four and any other hotel anywhere in the area was going to make us rent two rooms because either they didn't actually have enough beds for all four of us to sleep or, if they did have enough beds, we still couldn't be in the same room. The reason: our son (17) was an adult... More

I paid over $100 for a room that had no tv, ac, or Internet. The shampoo and body wash was watered down, the wireless Internet couldn't reach my room, and the breakfast was literally toast, coffee and tang. I don't mind these kinds of living quarters if the price was more inline with what you get (like $30). It was... More

I am sorry Mike you felt our motel was over priced. If you call around the area you will see all of the motels are similar in price. We do not advertise air conditioning or TV in our motel. We do offer internet in our community rock room which has a spectacular view of the peaks of Glacier National Park.... More

The mattresses in our room were apparently brand new and gave the best night sleep of our entire vacation. The rooms have a vintage motel smell. Lovely breakfast. No tv but the office gives out free dvd viewers and dvds.

Good vibes! Very close to the west entrance of Glacier; clean; VERY friendly staff; nice view. Pool looked nice, but we didn't use it. The website says the continental breakfast is "light," this is very true: just some toast, English muffins, instant oatmeal, juice, and coffee. Our shower stall was positioned so that water sprayed right onto the ground. We... More

I recently travelled to Montana for a family wedding. I went there several days, before the Day so I could enjoy the magnificent scenery and majestic mountains. I made reservations online at the Vista Motel, given 3 stars by AAA( I don't know how old that rating is), as it was just outside Glacier National Park, where I planned to... More

The Vista Staff apologizes for your uncomfortable stay at our Motel. We do not advertise we have TV or Air Conditioning. Once in a while Montana gets a heat spell in the 90's. We have fans in all the rooms and extra fans at the front desk. The staff at The Vista takes pride in our simple, friendly,clean motel with... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in July 2013, to be close to other family members who were camping in the Glacier campground. The room was nice, with a queen bed in the main room and a separate room and double bed. Bathroom was recently renovated and we did have some difficulty with the design of the shower, which allowed... More
