We booked this hotel because of its proximity to the glacier national park. On our drive there I was trying to locate the hotel on the GPS without success, so I called up on the motel and they gave me the GPS co-ordinates which were spot-on. Because we were going to arrive late, the owner told me that she would leave the keys in an envelope near the front desk. It was around 1 am that we arrived at the motel, and fiddling around trying to look for the keys but the owner immediately showed up and welcomed us with a big smile that late into the night.
The next day, I had a great chat with the owner again about the nearby hikes, must see places. She even warned me about a food bug that was going around. When I told her that we were going to hike the Iceberg trail and didn't have any bear spray with us, she immediately gave me 2 cans for our group of 5. Such customer service is what is so endearing.
Do not expect luxury in the rooms. The place provides good value for money and and were old but clean. As some of the other reviews mentioned it is right off the highway so you can hear the car and train sounds, but if you spend enough time in the park, sound sleep wont be a problem at all. :)
Just wish they had more options for breakfast like eggs or waffles. Highly recommended!
