“Better than expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

If exploring Glacier in July or August, book ahead. We paid too much for this motel on our first night as we could only get a jacuzzi suite and other hotels were full. The subsequent nights were more reasonable.
Our rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was very nice. The laundry room was a bit dirty but we were glad to have it.
The breakfast was barely adequate. The coffee machine was not working and the cereals (and donuts) were the cheapest possible. However, there was fruit, yogurt and toast and bagels. Eggs and better cereals would help.
There is a good Mexican restaurant next door and a good grocery/supermarket within walking distance.

This hotel is on the main highway and located in a good place. The advertise casino attached to it is closed. There was a Mexican restaurant Within walking distance. The check-in process was quick since all the keys were premade and laying on the counter. It took me about 30 seconds to check in. The person at the counter was very friendly, energizing, and helpful. She knew quite a bit about glacier national Park and became my tour guide for about five minutes. The room was good size, the bathroom was very tiny, under the clothes rack was a counter which was very convenient for putting all my luggage in one place within easy reach. I could not get the curtain to stay shut so I pushed the table up against it. The guy at the checkout counter in the morning acted like he would rather not be talking to anybody. It seemed I was interrupting them on something and he was not pleased with that. The room was somewhat dated and tired looking. It did have a flatscreen TV. The breakfast was on the low end of Continental breakfast at budget hotels.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same size. If you only need one bed, pick a room with one queen size bed. Thos...

Because of the area, near the entrance to Glacier National Park, they have a captive audience and can provide the minimum while charging a high price.

Breakfast was void of things many other Econo Lodges have such as waffles,, eggs, sausage, decent rolls. They did have some small donut holes and muffins, apples and oranges, etc.

Not a lot of choices in this area and price range.

Don't be mistaken, you get what you pay for. This is not a 5 star hotel. It is a nice place to stay, service desk was fantastic. Free wifi, free calls to Canada, free breakfast. For a quick overnight rest this place is very good.

This place is very worn and disgusting the place reminded me of a no tell motel.... Would not recommend. The furniture had cigarette burns on them and we were in a no smoking room drapes were only partially hanging on rod absolutely disgusting. No iron or ironing board the lobby was clean and the desk clerk was friendly but I would not go back there on a bet.

Disgusting place! I had a giant blood stain on my pillow. There were also, black stains on towels and bed sheets. Their online pictures shows, flat screen TV in each room, we didn't have one. I do not watch TV on vacation, but the point is they lie about something they DO NOT offer! We checked out the next day and stayed at Hilton Garden Inn (next door) and we loved it!

We stay here whenever we come up to see our youngest granddaughter. It's always been quiet when we've been there. Though their breakfast is fairly average for a continental breakfast, their desk attendants make up for it. They have always been polite and so very helpful. Makes our stays worth it.
