We stayed here one night while visiting the Park. The Motor Inn rooms were comfortable and quiet. We left the window open all night and were not awakened by any noise. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom was clean and shower was good.

As a newbie to Glacier National Park, we stayed the first 4 nights here and then moved to Apgar the last three nights in order to be closer to the airport on the last day. If I had it to do over, I would extend the stay on the east side. We are avid hobby photographers with a love of... More

After a ten mile hike (which was a huge achievement for me and not my usually thing), I was looking for a cold beer and a relaxing meal. Considering the area was crazy busy with people, this place was not busy and we were seated by a window quickly. The atmosphere was nice. The food was pretty good and didn't... More

Stopped here after a 10-mile hike down the swiftcurrent trail, and even exhausted and very hungry, we didn't finish the food we ordered. The beer selection was good at least, but the potato skins clearly had been left under a heat lamp and were laughably dry and crusty, and the pie was also clearly old. We would have asked for...

The inn was just fine for a last minute extension of our trip that allowed us to see a different part of the park. Not nearly as nice as the cabins at Lake McDonald, which have been recently updated, but still clean and convenient. The attached restaurant has breakfast all day, and there are laundry facilities in the complex if... More

Just back from a 4 night stay at the Pinetop Motel at The Swiftcurrent Motor Inn. Some of the reviews of the Pinetop rooms here at TripAdvisor had us a bit worried, but our experience overall was very good. The rooms were clean (although on the small side...especially the shower) and within a very short walk of Nell's restaurant at... More

Didn't have a fireplace, but, in July, the high is usually in the 80's, so a cool night is something you look forward too. Our cabin still stunk of new paint, but was much bigger feeling than we expected when we got our first look (I think the high ceiling adds to the spaciousness). While the main room kept its... More

Was pleasantly surprised with how updated and clean the cabin was. There are last minute daily available rooms and luckily we got a handicapped cabin with a giant private bath- of all the cabins i have stayed in this was the best. Hiking trails right behind the cabins- they are close to each orher yet that did not seem to... More

The Restaurant, Italian Garden Ristorante, is a wonderful Italian shop in a National Park. We had good service and good food. The only down side was the noise from the Swiftcurrent Motor Inn lobby. We had a great break from camping most of the week in the Many Glacier Campground right across the very large and full parking lot.

What a great spot to get supplies for camping or a day hike (both food and gear) and a perfect spot for breakfast or lunch pre/post hike and of course a post hike brew! Friendly service, clean, great food options (breakfast all day!) and great local Montana beers on tap.
