I am glad i chose Vista motel for my Glacier NP trip. Location: Within a mi of park entrance and ~3 mi to Apgar visitor centre. There are many good restaurants closeby, including the famous Belton Chalet. Views: We got a room facing the road which gave great views to the distant mountains. It was over 4July weekend but traffic... More

In the King room we had a bed, small dresser, luggage stand, and dorm sized refrigerator with a lamp. The bathroom had the smallest sink I have ever seen outside of a travel trailer. There is no chair, hairdryer, or clock in the room. The only mirror in the room was a 16 x 20 over the tiny bathroom sink.... More

Stayed in one of the cabins for three nights in June. Nothing fancy, but were comfortable, and clean. Cabin had no tv or phone, but hey, we weren't there for those anyway. The view of the mountains was great, and loved the sound of the trains going by. Beds were comfortable to sleep on, and bathroom was very clean, although... More

Stayed in one of the cabins behind the motel. It was clean and comfortable with a fridge. A light breakfast was included, which was nice. We hung out in the hammocks in the evening and took in the views from the Rock Room. You can hear the trains sometimes in the night, but it wasn't much of a problem. I... More

Our family stayed 2 nights (6/21 and 6/22) at the Vista Motel for our trip to Glacier National Park (wished we had stayed longer). We were in Room #5 which had three bedrooms and one bath. The view of the mountains was spectacular! The room was clean and beds comfortable. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. They have a book... More

We recently stayed for 2 nights at the Vista Motel. We chose this motel based on its location (in West Glacier, Montana), ability to easily fit 4 people in 1 room (2 queen beds), and reasonable price. When we first drove up to the Vista Motel, we were not optimistic. It looks like an old 1-star motel from the 1950's.... More

Stayed for a couple of days at the end of May 2016 during my visit to Glacier National Park. The staff were very courteous and made our stay very comfortable. The room was clean and well maintained. There was a noise problem with the road very close by and a lot of vehicles passing through there. The curtains were also... More

On first impressions the Vista Motel appears run down but when you get in the rooms while they are adapted they are perfectly serviceable with everything you need to hand. The place is clean and comfortable.

We loved staying at the Vista! The staff is very helpful and friendly. Clean and great price, especially for being right at the entrance to the park. We knew we weren't going to spend a lot of time in our room so we thought, why pay so much for the ones inside the park. We were pleasantly surprised and would... More

Staff all friendly and helpful. Good starting point for the Glacier National Park. Rooms very comfortable. Try to get a room at the front of the motel as you get a great view towards the mountains. Complementary breakfast is available in a cabin at the front of the property with coffee, cereal and warm muffins. Although you cannot see the... More
