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.

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 …
... a greater number of people to enter into the heart of northwest Montana. Soon small settlements sprung up.
But the beauty of this area also caught the eye of many and they realized it was something special. With the effort of George Bird Grinnell and others came the signing of the bill by President William Taft making Glacier the 10th national park. The Great Northern Railroad recognized that the new park would bring more passengers. In 1913 ...
... brake controller means that the trailer brakes went full power at the lightest touch of the brake pedal. Sort felt like being on a bucking bronco. Needless to say I used two tried and true methods to brake whenever possible- the engine exhaust brake and downshifting to a lower gear. These two systems work very well but take a greater distance to stop.
We reached the summit at Lolo Pass and headed ...
... so close to the road that the water actually will drip on the westbound cars as it comes down. We climbed around a few of these and took a lot of pictures. As we came to the summit, at a place called Logan's Pass, there was another Visitors Center. The parking lot was shown as full, but there is also a special motorcycle parking section and we were able to find a spot for our bike there. There is still a lot of snow around the ...
6pm Went to Many Glacier and St Mary today. Bec the Going-to-the-sun road is closed, we had to make a loop round the park to the eastern side. We set off at 10:40am and followed the Flathead River down the western edge of the park. There are some rapids in the river and we saw some rafters in it. The western edge of the park isn't as dramatic as the southern or eastern part of the park. Especially on the western side, there are lots and lots towering mountains with jagged ...
