Stayed in the "Zoo" 1900's Cabin in the back, was a great quiet sleep and a experience to remember, we would stay again for sure next time thru and pick the "zoo" again. People are excellent hosts and there is a great breakfast place across the street and a excellent restaurant down the road

I love this place and this was my second visit. I hesitate to give it a rave review because Glacier Park can be difficult to find lodging in and Thronsons can often have a space! At the entrance to Many Glacier road and less than 15 minutes from the Canadian border, you can pretend you are back in the 1950's...

This motel is basic - no WiFi, TV with one channel (but DVD player and a supply of DVDs), no breakfast...but the second floor rooms were remodeled last winter and are very clean and attractive. The location is close to Glacier gates of Many Glacier and St. Mary and a day trip away from Canada's Waterton Lakes National Park. The...

It is a little motel on the side of the road, without a website or online reservations, but we had a clean, quiet room for a night with all we needed. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The location was perfect for visiting Glacier NP and I would definitely consider a longer stay at Thronson's on my next trip...

This is a great location to get to Many Glacier in Glacier National Park (on the east side of the park). It is only about 12 miles/25 minutes to Many Glacier. Pros – location is excellent. Our room appeared to have been recently remodeled with a newer shower and nice hardwood flooring. The room had a small refrigerator, comfortable queen...

We stayed here for one night while on a motorcycle trip. The family owns the hotel, store, restaurant and gas station in town. The beds were comfortable but one tv channel, NO internet and few frills in the room. With no other options to stay you are stuck. This was the most expensive of the 10 hotels we stayed at...

There are not many places to stay outside of Glacier on the east side. Thronsons is a no frills motel in Babb. The beds are comfortable and room is large. You have a refrigerator in the room. They provide coffee and tea in the General Store. There is a general store, cafe and gas station right across the street from...

Super clean and cute. I love the balcony to sit on. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. Don't let the small town or the website/ look of the outside fool you. I love how close it is to get hiking into Glacier Park, and the cafe across the street has great food!

We spent 2 nights at this motel last week. The room and bathroom were spacious and very clean. There was a refrigerator and hair dryer. We could get ice and use microwave at the store. Only 1 channel on the TV, but we didn't get back to our room until near dark both evenings. We stayed on the 1st floor...
