I was traveling with my husband and two grandsons to Glacier National Park for a few days . We were very happy with our accommodations. We arrived early and were greeted by a very pleasant woman who checked and our cabin was ready and surprised that there was a swimming pool. The boys were thrilled. It was not real large... More

I booked a room here for a wedding that was happening next door because it seemed to be the most affordable option. When I arrived and saw the place I was immediately nervous that it wasn't going to be very nice. The person that was staying with me tends to not like motels and I began to panic a little... More

We booked 3 nights about a month before we needed a place to stay - not much time! But we were so lucky. There are two buildings for motel rooms; ours had 2 queen beds, updated fixtures, a small kitchenette and small nice bath (shower, no tub). Beds were separated by a wall giving each of us some quiet time... More

This is a clean, very reasonably priced motel which is extremely close to the entrance to Glacier National Park. The front desk staff was very helpful and extremely knowledgeable about the park. It would definitely stay there again.

Vista is one of those unassuming little places that are so hard to find these days. Right outside west glacier, it is clean, comfortable with very nice people. I left a pair of shoes there and they found them and shipped them back to me. Great place to use as a home base to get to the park.

vista motel is in a prime location outside of Glacier National Park in West Glacier. Rooms have been redone recently with new carpet, mattresses and upgraded bathrooms. While not deluxe, after all you are there to experience the outdoors, the Vista is clean with staff that work hard to anticipate your needs, ie bear spray for hikers a limited continental... More

We all slept pretty good and grateful for the AC and fan given the warm temperatures. Having a contentinal breakfast was nice to have for getting going early. Clean and comfortable accomodations for a seasonal motel. They even have bear spray on loan!

Not much to add to other favorable reviews. Tabletop in our room was sticky in one place, but otherwise accommodations were clean. A little bit of a grandma's house feel, but I loved my grandma. Shower was tight. Front desk folks were friendly. We left before the complimentary breakfast for an early morning look at Glacier. Magnificent, as we actually... More

Amy, Cathy & Ashley were all friendly and helpful. If you need information in advance, call, don't email. We stayed in #9 king kitchenette -- it had the smallest, cutest bathroom sink I've ever seen - clean and everything worked. No a/c so we needed to leave windows open for cool night air and 6 trains between 10pm & 6am... More

Our family of 4 really enjoyed our stay at the Vista Motel. The cottage we rented (2 queen beds) was really comfortable and, though the room was on the smaller side, everything was perfectly arranged for the space. The staff were friendly and very helpful. As noted by another reviewer, the only negative was the breakfast. We'd stay here again... More
