By far the best part of this motel is its location, it is perched on a hillside and looks out over a stunning vista. However, what we expected and what we got were two different things. It was nice and clean, but no updating had been done on the room in possibly 30 years; the sink was stained, the decor was tired, the lighting dim (not romantic, just inadequate!) We were disappointed, since we had been viewing this trip to MT as a romantic getaway and the depressing room was a definite downer! Pool/hot tub area looked very nice and well-maintained but "breakfast area" consists of two tables squeezed into the small main office/lobby (we ate in the darling town of Big Fork!)
When we asked for an ironing board, since there wasn't one provided, they brought a broken, mini-sized board to the room. Old pipes seemed to be a problem as well, I gave up trying to get any hot water/water pressure and resorted to baths both days we were there.
When we have the opportunity to visit Big Fork again, we will definitely shop around, and avoid staying here again...because it was quite clean (just very tired) we would stay here again if we had to, but it wouldn't be our first pick! When a hotel relies solely on its location to keep customers coming back, and puts next to nothing into updating their facility I feel taken advantage of...as though we are a captive audience, so they don't have to make any extra effort to remain a quality establishment.
My family and I had a very enjoyable stay while taking in all of the local beauty and festivities. We stayed here for a week and would definitely return. We enjoyed lounging by the clean outdoor pool after returning daily from our sightseeing jaunts, our room was immaculate and we felt it was a good value. Hopefully, we will return soon.
This lovely motel overlooking Flathead Lake more than met our expectations when we stayedt in August 2008. The staff was very friendly and they took the time to give us helpful suggestions about local activities. Our room was very clean and attractive, the grounds were beautiful and nestled amongst pine trees, and we really enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi. We will definitely return this winter for some skiing and relaxation. We certainly had fun and would recommend The Timbers Motel to our friends.
We stayed at the hotel in July of 2008. We drove from Missoula airport and took a break before going to Glacier National Park next morning. Hotel is very clean, nice continental breakfast, and outdoor pool with hot tab. There are two inexpensive casual places for food across the street, or you can walk 3 min to the downtown of the Bigfork for more expensive dinner.
