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... More

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... More

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 Way outdated and furniture and beds are due to be replaced; no comfort, loose headboard on bed, broken springs, sofa hard and worn, uncomfortable... More

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... More

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,... More

I'd given this place 1 star, but I checked for bed bugs and couldn't find any. The family style apartment in the second building was VERY dirty. The floors, including the bathroom floor, was stained and dirt ridden. The couch and chair had questionable and overt large stains underneath the overthrown blanket. The ottoman wasn't covered and it was terribly... More

We enjoyed three nights at the cutest little room. We came expecting a motel room and had what is like an efficiency apartment. It was one in a quad of four. Really cute and comfy. There is also motel rooms, cabins and Tipi's.

We were happy to find this campground on a recent visit to Glacier NP. The entire area is much busier than we expected. The staff here is very nice and they offer free continental breakfast at the office. The hookups all worked, water, electric, and sewer at your site. Showers and restroom were clean, though dated. But, the grounds are... More

WiFi didn't work unless you were in the front office. The room was the tiniest ever. One person could barely fit in the bathroom. Also, while "enjoying" the muffin bar at tables surrounding the lobby desk, you have to listen the employees shop talk. Even the manager conducted an interview for a prospective house keeper right there. That's incredibly unprofessional!
