I took the train to East Glacier Park and spent the night at the Circle R motel, right in town, nice room, clean, microwave, fridge, 40" flat screen, Would have been 5 stars, but there were no table/chairs in the room, had to sit on the bed. It was a little strange that there was not a phone in the... More

We initially contacted Circle R seeking a cabin and were contacted and told that the cabins were all taken and we could have a room a the motel. Since a motel room was not our first choice of how to stay at Glacier we were a little nervous about what to expect. This total was not bad at all. We... More

Overall the hotel was pretty nice. Someone clearly put a lot of effort into giving it a clean appearance and a faux log cabin exterior. The bathroom was very spacious and clean. The price was pretty steep for a no frills motel, but that close to Two Medicine we weren't too surprised. We paid around $100 for a single queen... More

We made a reservation in April and was referred to this hotel by st Mary's Lodge. I was called by the hotel a couple of weeks ago To confirm reservation. We arrived and was told they had made a mistake and sorry we don't have your cabin. We can give you a standard room for a lesser rate. The room... More

I stayed here twice during my visit to Glacier in 2015, once in a cabin and once in a new room. They were both wonderful, very clean. I loved the cabin, it was new feeling and immaculate, private and felt like I was getting away. Great sunrises and sunsets. The room was second story and was equally clean and comfortable.... More

This motel is located in a quiet, little town near the Two Medicine entrance to Glacier. It is a typical motel. Microwave and mini fridge in room. There is free wifi, but it didn't work for us. Shower has great water pressure, but it is a small shower stall. No breakfast. It is directly across from the Amtrak station.

After reading the reviews on this hotel, I was nervous to stay here. However, the rooms were actually nicer than I thought. The beds were comfy but the pillows were really flat. The bathroom was nice and updated. I would recommend this hotel.

This hotel is a clean, no frills hotel. Friendly staff but no phone in the room. It's in a good location, right next to the restaurants and stores. The office is closed fairly early so make sure to get your extra pillows and blankets early!

We stayed several days in a cabin. They had left a key out for us, so we were thinking wow, what great service. We arrive at the cabin and were chased into our cabin by resident dogs. Not okay! We wait until the three dogs leave and then unload our rig. We get our belongings inside and were ready for... More

This is a great place to stay if you run out of options to stay inside Glacier National Park on the East Glacier side or the other places are too expensive. Although you will be driving for atleast more than an hour to the hotel, it worked out well for us. There are plenty of places to eat around this... More
