5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We had a wonderful experience here. Very close to West Glaicer train station and park. We came in on Amtrak with only our bicycle and gear. Was very reasonable priced and very bicycle friendly. Right on bicycle trail. Amy was very helpful and accommodating. Will most definitely stay here again.

This is an old motel, but really well maintained : very clean, and very nice linen (a rarity, in a motel!). It offers a good bed, a shower, a view of the mountains of Glacier park, is very near the entrance, also offers a (very basic, though, but still appreciated : coffee and toasts) breakfast, is run by a CHARMING...

I stayed in Room 8. It has obviously recently been renovated and looks great - new sink, shower, carpet. There are plenty of lights in the room. There is a fridge. There are dispensers for shampoo and shower gel in the shower. There is a ceramic wall heater and a portable air conditioner. The West Entrance to Glacier National Park... More

Great location. Just 5 minutes from the park, looking out over the West Glacier entrance. The convenient location did mean some road and train noise, though. Simple but clean. Nice towels, linens, and bed. Continental breakfast included toast, muffins and instant oatmeal. Good coffee. The community room, a separate building with wood fire place, was cozy (although a but smoky)... More

From the outside it seems too old, but it has totally redone interiors. Who are the right people? They want No TV, Travel without pets, and have no wifi in the room. Instead, wifi is available in a charming community building, open 24/7, where breakfast is also set. As a result, guests easily start conversations and share information. There are... More

Located in a very convenient spot with a great mountain view- catch it around sunrise, enjoy the starry skies in the evening. It affords easy access to Glacier National Park at very reasonable rates; situated close enough to the kind of places a visitor needs, i.e., restaurants, supermarket, gas station, and then, of course, the park. This is not a... More

This is a quite nice little motel very close to the west entrance to the park. I mean CLOSE! It was cozy and in excellent condition. Small rooms, but adequate. Bathroom was especially small. They have a room out front where you can hang out end enjoy the incredible views. Friendly staff. Could not ask for more.

Finding a reasonably priced place to stay near Glacier National Park is a challenge. We found an opening at the Vista Motel and grabbed it, hoping it would be ok. Driving by it I worried a little because the architect is reminiscent of the fifties. I was pleasantly surprised to find it nicely remodeled and very clean and comfortable. The... More

Extremely friendly staff and the homemade muffins were fabulous! The views were good and close to Glacier National Park (2 min or less). Parking was limited in front of your room. We arrived very late and they held the room for us.
