This is conveniently located about 15 minutes away from the entrance to Glacier National Park and the Canadian border. The accommodations are simple, but very clean and comfortable. There is no wi-fi and the only channel is HBO family, but they do lend out DVDs at the store if you're dying to watch something. Reservations, check-in and check-out were all... More

This nondescript general store and hotel are charming and wonderful. It is a family owned operation and very well worth the stay. The people are outstanding, the general store great and the accommodations fantastic. This small town is a perfect place to stay for proximity to Many Glacier. We loved it and wanted to extend our stay, but it was... More

A simple small motel in the tiny town of Babb. We enjoyed its proximity to Many Glacier and St Mary. The room was clean with nice towels, linens, and bed. Only one station (HBO) on tv, but we didn't mind. We used the microwave in the general store next door and had a couple of meals at the restaurant across... More

This is an excellent place to stay when visiting east Glacier NP (Many Glacier and St. Mary's areas). It's plain and no frills, but it is clean and well-maintained. Best of all it's half (or less) the price of the in-the-park hotels. Rooms are better than Many Glacier Chalet rooms (not quite the views or ambiance, though). Thronson's is definitely... More

Compared to the price to stay at a hotel inside Glacier NP, this place is cheap and CLEAN! The staff is very friendly, the rooms are CLEAN and decent, they have a general store with just about anything you need. The cafe across the road is EXCELLENT as well. Great food and reasonably priced. Try the cinnamon rolls!

This doesn't look like a great place from the outside, but once we opened the door we were pleasantly surprised. We were running out of lodging options when I came across this and called them. It was reasonably priced, in a good location, and the staff was friendly. Our room was very spacious and clean. There's a TV, but it... More

This was a nice motel close by Glacier National Park. There is one big street (2 lane) with the motel, grocery, post office and Cattlemen's Restaurant on one side and a diner on the other. The motel looked just ok from the outside, but the inside was a pleasant surprise. The room was large with a mini-refrigerator, spotless, comfortable beds... More

From the outside, Thronson's could use some TLC. Beyond that, we were pleasantly surprised with our room. It was spacious and appeared to be newly remodeled with faux wood floors. This hotel was a great stay after a day in Glacier behind us and crossing into Canada the next morning.

Nice motel and they keep it very clean! Not many frills, one tv channel no wifi, but an excellent quaint place to stay. Very helpful and friendly staff. This motel is a step back in time, you can just set back and relax! Great little café across the road for breakfast.

First I would like to mention Debbie who helped me with my booking. She was so very sweet, helpful and easy to work with! I requested a newly refurbished room with 2 Queen beds. The room was clean and very spacious and the bathroom was updated nicely! There was a bit of noise on our first night but nothing too... More
