“Gave away credit card gauranteed reservation”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

I made a reservation on April 8 of this year for a house that would accommodate our party. Had confirmation from Jackie. I called a week before our arrival and she said that it was rented by a Hill. Not a word about changing this and re-booking the Hill reservation to other rooms, only that they wood take care of us with other rooms for the same price and keeping us together. Giving us no choice at this point in time. When we arrived we were not together. the girl at the desk said there was nothing she could do and all the other rooms were already gone. Our rooms should have been blocked at the time of call. It is not very good business to this to customers. I have my own idea of what took place. They did return a case that we left there and I thank you for that, and the rooms ok but my recommendation to anyone else is beware when you make your reservation.

Room Tip: Always read the reviews and make your choice from them.

It is exactly what it needed to be... A place with a decent bed and clean sheets and towels to crash at after long days of hiking in Glacier. Bathroom was a bit dingy, had ants, shower was small, and the shower head was short, but the water was hot and the water pressure was good. We were careful with keeping the food in the room closed and we didn't have any problems with the ants getting into our stuff. All in all it wasn't a bad experience for the price with easy access to Glacier Nat'l Park. Can't beat the price for the location but if you're looking for a 5-star resort this is not the place for you.

Traveling on a 10 day motorcycle trip with no reservations for any of our nights, we ended up at the end of the day in Saint Mary's. I would not recommend this motel, unless like us you didn't want to travel any further or you didn't want to pay $300 a night for the lodge down the road. The view from the hotel was amazing, and the town is a great place to start the trip through Glacier. Good luck!

I wish I had taken photos to share so everyone would know how terrible this place is. It should be bulldozed to the ground. Decor is from the 70's and it's dirty. There was no bar of soap in our room. Glad we had our own along, but I've never stayed at a motel without soap, not even in a third world country. We wore our shoes inside as the carpet was dirty. We slept in our sleeping bags as we questioned the cleanliness of the bedding. The floor slopes badly. We had difficulty getting the lights to work. My husband had to crouch in the shower because the shower head is quite low. There were hairs on the counter by the sink. The towels are so old and crusty they actually hurt to use. We would never stay there again!

Room Tip: Do NOT stay here!

That's the one reason we stayed, the location. It is costly for the room but you stay there for the location, not the room.
The owners are nice and know what they have. No AAA or AARP discounts.
The water pressure in the sink low, a huge stain on the carpet and all kinds of plumbing supplies under the sink left there after a repair.
After spending over $100.00 per night, you think the room would be cleaner.
I would stay again, but will inspect my room closer next time.

This motel was right outside the East entrance of Glacier National Park, so the location was great. We stayed here for a night on the September long weekend because we had no reservations and literally every campground in the park was full. It definitely met our needs and we had no problems getting a room on short notice. The facility is old and outdated but everything was clean enough and the shower was warm. It was pricey ($85 per night) for a dumpy motel, but EVERYTHING around Glacier National Park is really expensive. All around, it was a decent place.

It is an older motel very near the lodge in St. Mary.. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. There was a mold smell in the bathroom but it did not reach the bed area. The water pressure in the shower was very poor. It met our need for a night and is much cheaper than the lodge. Make sure you try the restaurant next door. Lots of food.for the money.

Room Tip: The rooms up stairs are larger than the ground level.
