“Comfortable Room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

The room and be were comfortable. However, the property needs updating. The carpets are dated and stained throughput and the floor at the reception area was in need of cleaning. one of the lights in our room was burnt out but the receptionist had it replaced promptly. The halls are very dark and modern fixtures and new carpet would help alleviate the feeling of dinginess.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

We stayed two nights after planning the trip short notice. Not much was available and the rate was pretty good. On the plus side, the bed was very comfortable and the sheets clean. Plenty of room in the room and bathroom. And the breakfast was pretty decent. You can get a cooked to order omelet. They have a nice little inner courtyard where you could sit and relax, and fire pit. The hallways seem dark and the carpets old and dirty looking. Everything just seemed old and dated. I was not really comfortable there. Our reason for being in the area was to go to Glacier National Park, and it was an easy drive, but took an hour or so. The staff was friendly. So, it's a toss up. Next time, I will plan in advance and look for other arrangements, but it served a purpose with no frills. Just OK in my opinion.

My wife and I spent two days here while visiting Glacier National Park and had zero problems. The room, service, location were all great. The free buffet breakfast was a nice change from the usual hotel continental breakfast. The pool and hot tub was another nice benefit in this price range. I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for your great review. My family and I traveled up the Going to the Sun Road on the 4th of July. It still amazes me each trip I take to Logan Pass no matter how many times I have been there. I am so happy it was open when you were visiting and you witnessed one of the most beautiful areas of our country. Do not stay away long.

wonderful rooms, however, this was the first time we stayed in a one queen room and it was beautiful, although small as we normally stay in a double queen, but because of the increased cost in the summer time plus being close to a week end and a conference there, the 2nd night (on a Thursday) was quit a bit higher in price.

excellent everything. We had such a great time and I'd love to bring my kids to the area to see the Glacier park, but the breakfasts were almost as great as the park! We loved the hotel and will stay nowhere else if we ever have the blessing of returning to the area!! Very comfortable beds too.

We enjoyed everything about this hotel. The cleanliness, food, excellent service by every single staff member we came into contact with. The location could not be beat, connected to the mall, across the street from the visitor center and park and right in the middle of historic downtown. We wished we could have stayed a few more days, there is so much to do that you really don't even need a car to deep you busy. The pool was a nice size and the center courtyard was a gathering spot for many in our group. Also the lobby and adjacent area were very comfortable. There are other nice hotels in the area, but none with the location that this one has. Definitely would stay again.

This was not a bad hotel. Booked it off of Hotwire and received a good deal on it. The hotel staff was nice and helpful. The breakfast in the morning was good. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable.

Room Tip: Book through Hotwire!
