3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

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.

This is by far the best deal in the area. first, the staff, unbelievably accommodating and cheerful, especially Ellie, she deserves a Gold star, I observed her handle less than pleasant people with a smile on her face at 6 in the morning! she is like an energizer bunny she keeps going and going from sun up to sun down....

I stayed three nights with my three 20 something sons, one son's girlfriend and my wife. We rented two cabins and were very pleased. We cooked dinner two nights in the big cabin and cooked out on the gas grill provided by the pool. The proprietor was had some great suggestions about Glacier NP and was an accurate weather predictor... More

Although this is a 50's style of motel, the service and the amazing mountain view cannot be topped. The beds were very comfortable, nice chairs outside the room to soak up that mountain view on your down time. Big window in room 17 that gave you those ever changing mountain views from early morning to dark. Breakfast is just muffins... More

We were visiting Glacier in a hurry on our way through the state back in May 2014. At that point, Motel Vista had just reopened THAT DAY under new management. I believe we were the 2nd or 3rd customer. I cant say enough how amazing our stay was. Our "room" had 3 bedrooms, was very neat and had a great... More

The outside of the motel doesn't look fancy but the rooms are great! I stayed in one of the motel rooms with a queen sized bed and was very comfortable during our stay. The room was extremely clean, bed was comfy, and you can tell the bathroom was recently updated. There isn't AC in the room. However, fans were provided... More

I dont know why people are giving this Motel bad ratings - I guess they were either having a bad day or expected more for what they paid. I would say the cost is in-line with location and the quality. The location is perfect if you want to be right outside the park and accessibility to Going to the Sun... More

It looks like a standard, perhaps flea-bitten '40s or '50s roadside motel from the outside, but it's not. Our room had a new bathroom and comfortable bed and furnishings. It was squeaky-clean. The mom and daughter who manage it are very helpful. There was complete quiet at night from other guests, and the Rte. 2 traffic didn't disturb at all.... More
