The Vista Motel was a pleasant surprise as the online photos did not do it justice. We had Cabin 22, an adorable little cabin with lots of wood in the ceiling and a lovely, recently redone bathroom. It was very private and cozy--king bed. We had a little deck in the front to sit on if we wanted to and pool (didn't use) across the driveway. The breakfast was not great, but that's because they don't have a kitchen in that building. It would have been nice to have real juice instead of Tang, but I understand why it is the way it is. The staff was very nice and helpful with local advice as well as helping with some of our special needs. (Parking husband's bicycle he rode in on from Washington state, etc.) I would definitely stay there again. The location is great -- you're in the park within a couple minutes drive.
Oh, and the people who complain about train noise are just that... complainers. It was not an issue and anywhere you would stay in West Glacier, the tracks are right there, so it doesn't matter which place you would choose.
