Cozy cabin in the perfect location
We stayed in one of the "two bedroom historic cabins." Two bedroom, common room in the middle, with a big utility sink. Common bathroom is in a nearby building. Cabin was clean, comfortable, with bedding (lots of pillows!), towels and basic toiletries. Cabin had plenty of shelves, hooks and hangers, and outlets for charging devices. And also randomly an iron and ironing board. We were given tokens for the showers. There is also an ice machine in the shower building. This is one fancy step up from camping. No cell service except wifi in office lobby. And it's a much coveted location, you have to make reservations a full year ahead and they go in a blink. We would go every summer if possible!

Location, Location, Location
If you are hiking in the Many Glaciers area of Glacier NP, this is the place you want to be. Rather basic accommodations, but we were less than two minutes (76 seconds) from some of our favorite trailheads. Ten minute walk to Grinnell Glacier trailhead. Free ice available for your cooler collocated with a pay laundry. We stayed 6 nights and were delighted to be there. Convenient parking and felt very private even though you are close to everything. Only downside was sometimes noisy neighbors. No housekeeping during the stay; exchange towels at the office. We were very, very, very happy here!! Would jump through hoops to stay there again.

Basic and Functional
Great location for hikers as their were trail heads right outside our door. The rooms were rustic but sufficient. The queen bed was comfortable and kept us warm at night. We did, however, have moths in the bathroom. A reasonable place to stay if you want to stay in the park.

Motel needs to improve their cleaning practices!
Found out we had a problem in our bathroom when we went to use the shower on our first night there. There was over 3" of standing water in the shower that didn't drain. It was late at night. The office was closed but you could call for help. Someone did come and we got a different room . . . but . . . changing rooms at 10 p.m. when you are booked on the early morning hiker shuttle for Grinnell Glacier Trail was not ideal timing.
Second room had no issues but the hotel did absolutely nothing for the inconvenience. How could their cleaning people, not see the standing water when they cleaned the bathroom--obviously, they didn't clean the room and their cleaning methods are substandard!
They give you a wifi code you can use in the lobby, but it doesn't work. Multiple people in the lobby could not log on to wifi. If you stay here, check your shower when you check in. Switching rooms late at night, isn't fun. Only thing that is good is the location. It is close to many hiking trails.

Great Place to Relax
Excellent place to stay. We had the motel room with a queen bed and bath. We had an end room, you take 3 steps from the door and you are in the woods. No grass just woods, it's kinda scary at night because of the bears roaming the area. At this location there is no internet, tv or cell phone coverage, just a comfortable bed and a nice clean bathroom. They provide coffee and tea in the room. We ate at the restaurant there and used the internet to text. This is a perfect place to stay for hikes to Grinnell Glacier trail, Lake Josephine boat rides and enjoying the many views of the mountains in the area. There are bears in the area, you will need bear spray and bells.
