The rooms in the boutique hotel were very charming and cozy. The beds were solid an gave me a very good rest. But the real benefit of this hotel is its staff. Ashley was so helpful that she went out of her way to make sure that my wife an I had a very nice stay in West Glacier. Amy... More

We had room 19 which does not face the road - so you do not get the pretty mountain view. No A/C but room has 2 fans. Bathroom small but has what you need. Horrible bed - it sags on both sides, out, so you have to move to the middle of the bed to stay on it. We put... More

We had a great stay at the Vista Motel, unfortunately we were only able to stay one night. We stayed in one of the cabins, everything was very clean, beds were extremely comfortable and room was quiet. Should be aware that there was not a television of phone in the rooms which was not a problem for us, also no... More

The Vista Motel is so fantastic that this review cannot do it justice, but I'll try. The pool is glistening, the common area is welcoming and with fast internet we can still watch one or two episodes of our favorites on Netflix while glancing over at the crown glaciers in the distance. Our 15 year old niece loves to lazy... More

Are dripping shower was not only annoying but dangerous as the bathroom floor was slippery. The staff worked hard to make things more enjoyable but the owner needs to loosen the purse strings and do some basic upkeep! Lack of hot water plus door and window function and security need to be addressed.

Thank you for staying with us while visiting Glacier National Park. I apologize for the drippy shower. I apologized when you were here and let you know we had ordered the part to fix the problem. Unfortunately the part came in the day you left. There will always be repairs to do all along the life of a motel and... More

I give this motel top billing because of the staff. Amy and crew make guests feel like family. They were more than helpful in making us comfortable. We were there in record heat and the management was scrambling to town to find more fans. This is a quaint 50's type of motel which has been modernized. The humble exterior does... More

I came to West Glacier to visit my cousin, who is a raft guide. A friend and I drove out from Minnesota and stayed for 5 nights. The service was impeccable. Amy and Kathy were great. The other young lady (sorry, I can't remember her name!) was also fantastic. The rooms were clean and I felt like the staff members... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and we really enjoyed ourselves. There is no TV or other distractions, high enough that you don't hear a lot of traffic noise . If you have AT&T you're in good shape for wireless and phone services, otherwise it can be a little spotty, but doable. You're 5 minutes away from... More

Stayed for a 3 day, 4 night visit. It is right off the highway and also right outside the park. Loved it. Great view of the park, clean room, very welcoming people, and the breakfast muffins were outstanding. Don't expect all kinds of bells and whistles. It is a very simple place, but serves the purpose as a great place... More

We stayed for 2 nights in early June 2015 and the staff were very helpful. Because we were there 2 nights we were upgraded to a larger room. The views are brilliant, the wi-fi worked well and the rooms were older but clean. The have plenty of books and cd's you can loan while there to learn about Glacier. It's... More
