Great hotel to find at end of long day driving. We planned trip next day to Going to the Sun Road. Not much accommodation in the area and in very short time after our arrival motel was totally booked out. Staff were pleasant and helpful.Traditional low-set motel style layout with one long verandah outside rooms and free car parking in front. We had a comfortable room, quite spacious with mini-frig, recliner chair and small dining table and 2 chairs. Exceptionally clean and air-conditioned. A minimal free breakfast provided at reception area. Juice, Tea or coffee and fruit or pastries to take back to room.
We bought dinner from a nearby Hamburger Diner but there is an amazing Grocery store in Browning. Looks very new, Family Choice or similar and had everything to do with food and groceries and an exceptional wine and alcohol section. The large range of fruits and vegetables available were beautifully presented and packaged. The Deli section had tables and chairs in front and people seemed to be having an early dinner there. A lot of things were prepared and packaged for immediate consumption. Best grocery store I have ever seen anywhere. Staff were pleasant and helpful also. Gentleman at Wine & Alcohol section was very passionate and knowledgeable about his stock which I think would have been at home in grand hotel cellars or establishments. Very extensive, impressive range.
Next door to the hotel was a Native Indian Trader Store with wonderful local items and souvenirs and another Trading Store was a 5 minute walk down the road. Great to just browse in or buy very affordable and different things at. Browning is a very interesting and unusual town and it was wonderful to have visited such a unique place and the Western Motel was a lucky find and ensured a perfect stay.
