We were happy to find this campground on a recent visit to Glacier NP. The entire area is much busier than we expected. The staff here is very nice and they offer free continental breakfast at the office. The hookups all worked, water, electric, and sewer at your site. Showers and restroom were clean, though dated. But, the grounds are...

WiFi didn't work unless you were in the front office. The room was the tiniest ever. One person could barely fit in the bathroom. Also, while "enjoying" the muffin bar at tables surrounding the lobby desk, you have to listen the employees shop talk. Even the manager conducted an interview for a prospective house keeper right there. That's incredibly unprofessional!

Our family recently booked several sites in this campground, along with one cabin. First, the location is fantastic - about 15 miles to West Glacier and Glacier National Park entrance, 12 miles to Whitefish, 20 miles to Kalispell, and across the street from Big Sky Waterslide. The campsites are all back-in, but are definitely big rig friendly. Two of the...

The family suite was just the space we needed with 2 beds, a pull out couch and a kitchen area. Room was clean, property was well kept and most importantly the staff at the reception area was VERY attentive and helpful. The location was good as it was about a 15 minute drive into the park on the west side....

The rooms where a little small. Water pressure not good - didnt have very hot water to shower.( We do not take long showers=live in Calif. drought) Liked the fact that there was laundry on site. It was near park so that was great. staff friendly and quite helpful.I would recommend.

I am by no means a seasoned traveler but staying at the Travelodge in Kalispell, Mt looking for affordable housing in the area (which in this area of Montana is a major undertaking and a near impossible task to do anymore) when I came across an ad on Craigslist for the Western Inn motel. They were offering reasonable extended stay...

I really hate posting negative reviews and this one is written with regret. I'm an extended-stay visitor and have spent six weeks based in Columbia Falls for the past three years. Previously I stayed at the Super 8 and have given it a 5-star review but that place got bought by Western Inn and now it is not available for...

My family looked for a place to stay that would be near GNP, the cemetery in Columbia Falls for a family member memorial service, and also a good value.

We found the Western Inn to be hospitable and clean. We stayed in a dog-friendly room that had an extra charge, but it was a great space-- clean and well-equipped. The room rate was reasonable and the grounds are spacious and filled with comfortable outdoor furniture and games that children would enjoy. The continental breakfast had many choices.
