I have just spent six weeks at this location during October and November 2013. It was selected for price and the weekly rate was far better than any of the other local options, about $230/week for a room with microwave and small refrigerator. Both rooms I used were huge, twice as big as a typical Motel 6, and were very clean and tidy. The place seems to have been renovated recently because everything appeared to be quite fresh. It is the closest chain motel to Glacier National Park. The rooms are big enough for a family and the sofa in my room was probably a fold-out bed but I never tried it.
Since I was there for an extended stay I got to know the staff. Some are more friendly than others but all were helpful and professional. There was a free light breakfast available that included good orange juice, yogurt, oatmeal, coffee, fresh fruit, and bread for toast. Two free newspapers were also available and I grabbed one every day. Other than the juice, I always went to one of the great local breakfast places -- Montana Coffee Traders, Night Owl Cafe, or my favorite, Base Camp Cafe.
The only issue with this place is noise. If you are in a downstairs room any activity in the room above you may be audible. The owner of this place would be well advised to add effective sound-proofing material to the walls and ceilings.
Columbia Falls looks like an old mill town but it has some hidden gems and great advantages over Kalispell and Whitefish. These include the superb Palette Cafe hidden just off the highway, Bad Rock Books (reviewed elsewhere), and the swank and uppity bistro called Three Forks Grille (also reviewed elsewhere).
