We are very sorry that you are experiencing wifi difficulties, and hope that you received our notification to you that Charter/Spectrum is in the process of repairing our area-wide issue. They indicated they are providing lower than normal bandwidth for internet for all users within a ten-mile range. Very distressing indeed for us as well! Charter reps have indicated a...

This was a two night stay for us. The room was large enough for us and our 2 teenage kids. Not overly clean, but it was warm. The breakfast on offer was okay, but you do get what you pay for. It was our base stop for the Glacier National Park visit.

Nice rest area in a cold winter season. After a long drive, it was definitely the right place to take break and i was not far from the park. Good starting point for the tour of the next day. The rooms were clean and tidy.

We parked outside our room which included kitchen facilities. Sanitary rules require them to offer kitchen utensils at the front desk upon request. We had breakfast consisting of a limited selection of muffins, pastries and a fruit. They had a laundry house were we washed and dried our clothes for a total of $4 in quarters.

Traveled to the Columbia Falls, MT area for a funeral. Have stayed here before a long time ago. Hotel rooms on two levels. No elevator. Morning breakfast only consists of muffins and danish along with water and coffee. If you want a larger meal, you'll have to go into Columbia Falls or east along Hwy. 2. Can accommodate travelers that...

We've stayed in old motels that were updated to be modern while maintaining their character. This place is shabby. Shabby-Old not Retro-Chic The only reason I'm giving this place 2 dots is the friendly service by Jessika and the comfortable bed. Really the bed was very comfortable. Here's why it's not worth staying here: tiny room it was in a...

We stayed here while visiting Glacier National Park. Disappointed with booking online; room was very spacious but was well used. Just that little bit of grubbiness to not feel clean....hai on floors, sheets and in sink. Way outdated and furniture and beds are due to be replaced; no comfort, loose headboard on bed, broken springs, sofa hard and worn, uncomfortable...

We stayed in one of the cabins for two nights in August. Staff was friendly and the service was good. Nothing fancy, but a good value. If we were going to be in the area again, I would certainly stay here, and would recommend for family vacationing on a budget.

I was a little nervous about this place because when I booked I did it in a hurry and then it sunk in that I could not cancel my reservation. We thought it might end up being a little sketchy but we actually really enjoyed this motel. Our room had a kitchenette that we didn't use but it felt like...

We spent one night here once we arrived to Glacier, rest of our stay we were camping. The hotel is closed to the park entrance on the west side and close to shopping and restaurants. The staff was very nice. Rooms were nice and spacious, we got two queen beds, shower and kitchen. Rooms were all wood and nicely decorated,...
