“Caught in the 70s...”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

This is a basic motel with late 70s decor, but HUGE, clean rooms, microwave, fridge, non-flat screen TV, in-room safe, and adequate beds. What we liked best was although the hotel was booked almost fully, we experienced quiet and left the room window open for a breeze! Atop a steep hill, the motel is quiet and away from road noise. Breakfast was limited and space was at a premium, but we met some very interesting guests! A great break after Going to the Sun Road in Glacier Nat'l Park, although a distance away.

This was a great motel. Clean rooms, friendly receptionists, a pool, and a good value for the money. We enjoyed our stay and will stay here again if ever back in Bigfork. Breakfast was good, but nothing fancy.

The hotel is simple and nice with spacious rooms- superclean, well located, and exceptionally well run. If you can get a room, DO IT. We came in july high season and were fortunate to get a cancellation at Timbers so that we could spend one night. It is pet and people friendly, thanks to Matt who is also on the local rescue squad so that tells you what a good guy he is. BIGFORK is a wonderful place on exquisite FLATHEAD LAKE. Can Glacier National Park top this beauty? I feel like hanging around Bigfork longer and staying on right here at the Timbers. Nice pool by the way. That makes this great for relaxing in between all the rest there is to do to enjoy nature in this area.

I spent some time researching hotels for our family trip to Glacier National Park and touring Montana. Timbers seemed to be the place that stood out as good value and they certainly lived up to it. My husband and I felt it important to find a place that had a pool, fridge and microwave and was close to area dining, shopping and the lake, as well as a space for our playpen and kids stuff. We were so pleased with the cleanliness, spaciousness, friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere that we changed our reservations in Whitefish and stayed an extra night at Timbers in Big Fork. We loved the gazebo because we could enjoy being outdoors with the baby monitor after she went to bed. Breakfast was the standard fare but decent if you need a piece of toast or muffin in the morning and a coffee. There are great dining places nearby. We will definitely be staying here again. Thanks Matt!

We had a reservation for three nights over the Fourth of July, but the Timbers Motel LOST our reservation! Since it was a holiday weekend, we didn't have a lot of options. They weren't very helpful in suggesting alternatives for us, and they weren't very apologetic for their screw-up. Won't be going back. Make sure you confirm your reservation before you go!

Clean, quiet and reasonably priced. Has a small pool, although I didn't use it as it was packed with large families, and I wanted to explore the town - which is in walking distance. Has a continental breakfast included, but I didn't partake as I went to the Echo Lake Cafe (excellent, but get there early).

This little hotel was nothing fancy but it was clean & comfortable. One problem we had was that the shower wouldn't stay on one temperature. It kept going from cool to scalding & other people were complaining about it at breakfast the next morning, also. There is an outdoor pool & hot tub. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was limited in its choices but what we had was good. There is also a mini-fridge in the room as well as a microwave.
