From the outside or from their web page you might want to pass them by. It would be a mistake. All the rooms have been remodeled and have hard wood floors and large bathrooms. Upstairs rooms are usually one bed with a shower. No elevator and the stairs are steep. Downstairs two beds and bath/shower combo. Much larger and well...

The room was decent, it had 2 beds, enough to sleep 4 people. The customer service was great, the lady was nice on the phone and kept the key for us in the room because we arrived late. We rested well and had a good night's sleep. Would recommend this place to others who are in the Babb area. The...

Thronson's Motel presents an experience from another era; when lodging was on a personal level as opposed to an international hotel conglomerate. Mike and Debbie will take time to chat; ask you the next morning if your room was nice. There are no marble tiled rooms and hallways; that does nothing to enhance a good nights sleep. Someone else said...

Staff was very nice and helpful. They made sure to inform us that there is no Wifi and that the TV only has one channel. If you cannot disconnect from your phone then that will be a problem, but we loved it. Stayed at the end of the season and a lot of places had already closed down. They gave...

The phrase that comes to mind is "Don't judge a book by it's cover." This motel has zero curb appeal. In fact, I was ready to cancel my reservation when I saw the outside. BUT, the rooms are spacious and clean. The bathrooms have been updated, have a nice tiled shower. Two perks - your morning coffee is free at...

I did not know what to expect in such a small town but this was a really pleasant surprise. The rooms were clean, staff was very friendly and it was a quick drive from Glacier NP. The only drawback was the wifi does not work unless you are in the store, which is pretty well stocked for a small store.

We had to find another place to stay when they closed our place in St. Mary and we found this place. The people are just wonderful, so helpful and friendly. There was a lot of space in the room for the three of us and the room was very clean. Had a refrigerator which was a big help for storing...

What do I love?? Remote mountain areas, Amazing air, proximity to favorite hikes, a REAL general store, and a wonderful cafe right across the road. The downstairs rooms at Thronsons have been renovated and are HUGE. The upstairs rooms will be done over the winter. Wooden floors--Yea! So clean! A fridge! You walk a few steps to the general store...

What a great place to stay! So very convenient to the Many Glacier entrance to Glacier National Park, and don't judge the book by it's cover! The room was HUGE, with two queen beds arranged with so much additional space around each, and so very very clean, and super quiet! I felt right at home in this room. The staff...

We had a snafu in our hotel reservation elsewhere, but Thronson's was able to give us an extra night, which saved the day. This is a fantastic location, near the Many Glaciers/Swift Current area of GNP. They worked hard to get us Wi-Fi. Note to internet addicts: just forget about trying to stay connected in this part of the world....
