We had a cabin. Not very big, but it had a full sized refrigerator and a microwave. Our friends were in the motel and were not so lucky. It is an old cabin and could use a lot of work. Yes, it's close to Glacier national park and is only open seasonally, but new electric wiring would add so much to the security of visitors. A smoke alarm would add a nice touch. It was decorated in the garage/scratch and dental style. The kitchen utensils were very basic. I did develop an allergy reaction due to ancient dust and molds. We were very close to the park entrance and that was the one bonus. We spent more time in Glacier than in the cabin

Cheap place to sleep but not much more

We stayed here the night of August 22nd. There were torrential rains on our way in which knocked out power across the region— no power in our hotel and area restaurants and weirdly, no water. It made for an uncomfortable stay, to say the least. The location is very convenient to the west entrance of Glacier but also is right on the highway and across from the train, so noisy. No amenities. I wouldn’t stay here again.

NOT Secure or Safe

Currently staying here, July 2020. We checked in last night and discovered our bathroom window does not close or lock, and it is a ground floor room. Anyone could easily get into the room through it. Came back to our room today to find housekeeping had left our door unlocked! I called the front desk to inform them and they said "we have elderly people who clean our rooms so sometimes they forget things". In my opinion that is not something that should be forgotten. The desk clerk also implied that they thought we had checked out, which is impossible because our belongings are all over the room and while they did replace our towels they did not make the beds. Would not recommend this place if you value security at all. Extremely poor customer service.

Nice and quiet motel.

The only thing this place has going for it is location. Room has horrible musty smell. Was suppose to be a kittchennet and while we had a microwave, fridge, and stove there wasnt even a dinner plate to be had. We had one small fry pan with no lid...would be so easy to have stocked the kitchen better. Maybe even some dish cloths or towels? The hot water took forever to get if at all. Bathroom door was off its hinges, soiled towels left on the floor of the tiniest bathroom ever as well as long dark hair left on the shower floor...Highway noise was awful as well as the train noise. If this was a cheap hotel I get it but is a true RIP off for the price. Forced to prepay so you are stuck with it. It is a sad sad place that it seems owners are just taking the money in with no upkeep at all.
