          Extremely friendly staff and the homemade muffins were fabulous! The views were good and close to Glacier National Park (2 min or less). Parking was limited in front of your room. We arrived very late and they held the room for us.

          I had to cancel a reservation a entire month ahead of time due to an emergency surgery I had to have. I tried to e-mail your site it won't go thru. I understand you have a business to run but an entire month notice and you still took 10% out for what you called a cancellation fee. Why ?..Are you telling me that you will not just give this room to somebody else during this busy time of year. I understand if it was a week or 2. But during emergencys...a month in advance. This is bad business and you will never see me book a room with you again in the future. Not 1 place in my month long trip I had planned trip did this to me. I had an emergency surgery June 28th that I didn't know I would have had to have an entire month before my arrival date. Is losing my future business worth your lousy $27 you kept ?????

          Hi, I made an online reservation a couple days ago but I don't really know whether my reservation has been successful or not because there was not any notifications saying such that. Once I submitted the form including my credit card detail, it said "waiting..." and a few seconds later the screen came back to the reservation form page. I also emailed the motel but so far there's no reply. It's very frustrating as I have to plan my trip. Any suggestions?
