We stayed here overnight between our visits to Glacier National Park and Waterton Lakes National Park. We had originally booked a room with two queen beds based on price, but thr property gave us a free upgrade to the honeymoon suite as they needed the other room for something. For the price, it was much appreciated, and my fiancé really... More

Very clean with some obviously new fixtures and bedding. Old TV but still good picture. Quiet because not many guests the night we stayed. Very friendly and helpful staff gave us good advice about where to shop and eat.

This motel is very clean despite its older appearance. The staff were very friendly and the room came with more amenities than I expected for a motel (fridge, microwave, and coffee maker). Though it was a small room with little walkspace between the beds and TV, the bathroom was very large with a full shower/tub. The room could use some... More

Cardston is a clean quiet town with lots to see and do. We spent a day at the Carriage Museum Impressive for a small town. Check out Dave's drive in to see what small town friendly is all about. The Outpost motel was a great home base. Good Service and clean for an older Motel.

The reviews looked terrible, but we can anyway and upgraded to the Honeymoon suite for just a few dollars more. It was almost as good as a jacuzzi suite at the Peppermill in Reno. New paint, very plush, definitely recommend!

Thanks Steve, This is the standard that we are working towards for every room.... Unfortunately, until every room is renovated, we are going to get some negative comments.... But Rome wasn't built in a day.... and we are working hard to upgrade all of our rooms! Thanks for the positive feedback! More

My wife and I were scrambling to find a place to spend the night when the RV campground we were supposed to stay in at East Glacier turned out to be a parking lot with NO shade, no cell service, and crappy wi-fi. So, we got on the phone with our travel agent who located this little motel in Cranston.... More

If you like the smell of mold, mildew and old smoke; internet that doesn't work; and ambivalent staff, this place is for you. The smell alone knocked me off my feet but having to hold down the toast button so it would toast the bread took the cake (forgive the pun). The manager said the owners "were working on the... More

A friend and I stayed in this motel the week of July 17th, 2016. Our first impressions as we drove into the property were not positive, as the place had the look of being rundown. On further inspection we could see there was a new metal roof, but many more improvements need to be done before, in my opinion, they... More

Thanks for the feedback! We are currently installing a hot water recirculating pump so that hot water on demand is possible! Our water boiler was placed on one end of the building when it was erected, and so it can take a couple minutes to get hot water to the other end of the building in the mornings, but we... More

We pulled through town and were quite let down by reality vs. the lovely Tourism Board photos we'd seen online. This town is struggling in many ways and this motel is suffering along with the rest of town. But the new owner is doing work as fast as he can; there's scaffolding up and repairs are happening. The place needs... More
