If you are looking for a "resort", this is not it. The Glacier Highlands is basic lodging. It's a (relatively) cheap place to stay and is useful if you are spending your day in the park and sleeping there only. Go hiking all day and you won't care where you're sleeping - trust me!
Our Room #18 was set up two drive-ways from the road, which is also helpful in lessening the noise from the train below. It appeared some of the other rooms were remodeled - we got a glimpse of Room #19 which looked newer - but not ours. The wood paneled walls and ceiling looked old and outdated. Furniture is rustic. The bathroom is cramped and ugly, but we had ample hot water. Don't expect much from the tv - 15" old style wall mounted with DISH but only got a few channels. On the plus side - the room was clean and conveniently located to the park entrance and 2 restaurants. Note, there is no in-room refrigerator but you get a free bag of ice each day. Purchase a $5 styrofoam cooler at the store just inside the Park entrance and you'll be all set for your stay.
One nice thing about the motel - we sat outside our room at night and met a lot of nice people (fellow motel guests).
