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

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
