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

They offer both cabins and hotel rooms. We were a hotel room with double bed which was very comfy. Very clean, bathroom updated very nicely. It was unseasonably warm during our stay and the side windows were held up with sticks (no air-conditioning or fan) & had to leave the curtains open to get air in. At night we heard... More

I had booked one of the bigger rooms with 2 queen beds and a single bed so the place seems rather spacious to me and comes with a mini fridge. The room is clean and tidy and the bed is comfy and we so that's basically all that I need to have a good night's rest. Facilities are a bit... More

We have really enjoyed our 5 night stay in room 11. The views are incredible...even from the bed! Our room was impeccably clean...another huge plus. We were so appreciative of the amenities like the in-room fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. They also provided 2 daily newspapers, free wifi, guest lobby with lots chairs, tables, a working fireplace, puzzles, etc. The... More

Our stay this weekend was great! Our room (#6) had a gorgeous view and was very clean. The management and staff were very attentive and we are looking forward to visiting them again on our next trip to the park. You couldn't find a better location.

My family stayed at Vista Motel for a few days in the summer of 2012, during our road-trip vacation. This vacation included motel stops at Klamath Falls, Crater Lake National Park, Burns Oregon, Missoula Montana, Babb Montana, and Yellowstone National Park. (At Yellowstone, my back had an adverse reaction due to all of the driving, but that is another story.)... More

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
