Glacier Park Motel and Campground
Travel Blogs from Columbia Falls
We started out reasonably early on day 2, and headed into Glacier National Park to do our first real hike of the trip. A nearly 5 mile round trip jaunt through the woods. The trail was rated as moderate, so should be no problem for a couple of seasoned hikers like us right? RIGHT?
Problem #1 was apparent right away …
In 1994, I made the first of two trips to GNP. This trip was with the two kids and husband. It is a long drive from Arkansas to GNP so we broke the drive up into a about 3 1/2 days.
On the way, we stopped at the Custer Battlefield in Montana and spent a couple of hours there.
This is a very interesting place and learned a lot about the battle.

On our departure from the
“tour” we decided to see Glacier National Park in Montana. It was an overcast
rainy day but quite beautiful, however, we were a bit jaded after all we had
seen. We stayed at a ...
... pine trees on this side, more agriculture going on and tons of Cherry Orchards. The Flathead Cherries are quite popular and famous in this part of Montana. We are lucky that we are here during Cherry season. We bought some of these cherries and they sure do beat what we buy in California. The cherries here are delicious, all of them, and probably twice the size of what we are used to seeing. They are expensive, I paid $5.00 for a pound of cherries....but they are good. We are ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsGlacier Park Motel and Campground Columbia Falls
This hotel looked like it might be a bad one when we first got in there. But it was actually ok. It was clean, and quiet, and close to everything we needed. The staff were very friendly too!
If I had to complain it would be to say that the bed has a "plastic" cover underneath the bedding that was annoyingly loud when you moved around on it. Thankfully we had two beds in the room (another plus was that one bed was in it's own room) and the second one was quieter. Oh, and I would not jump for joy on water pressure in the shower either.... but it was manageable.
We went out for breakfast, so I can't comment on the food, but when we went down there, there were a lot of people seemingly enjoying it.
Also it has a lot of family friendly amenities, especially for kids. And you can sleep in tents (well actually they are Tee Pees) if you want which looks fun.
Overall I would say it was a good place, I would probably try others in the area on my next trip but that is through no fault of this place.
