We were looking for a value property close to Glacier NP and found this property online. Since we were 2 buddies traveling together we wanted separate bedrooms that also had cooking/kitchen facilities. This property was able to provide that at a very reasonable and affordable rate. Daily maid service included an abundant supply of sparkling clean towels which is a...

I stayed here a couple of nights while visiting Glacier NP. I reserved a single room and was given a room in a remote building. I would have been fine with the location had the wifi worked but it did not. After contacting the staff I was moved to the main building and given an upgraded room so I was...

This was our first trip to Glacier celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful in guiding us what to see. The room was very clean with a great mountain view. It was close to Glacier and a day trip into Canada to visit Red Rock Canyon. Very close to the airport and to shopping in...

This place was a nice stay near West Glacier, you will have to drive a bit to enter the park, but when Park hotels are too expensive, this isnt a bad choice. The place was clean and comfortable. The bedrooms were in separate rooms inside one unit which was nice. Beds werent too bad or uncomfortable. Perfect to rest after...

This was a nice motel, a little dated but comfortable. A little pricey, but probably par for the course as it was close to Glacier National Park. We traveled with our daughter and granddaughter. It was nice to have separate bedrooms. We paid $159 on Expedia for August 21st and then a week later the price dropped down to $85....

The hotel was easy to find from the Kalispell airport when we arrived at 1am. The key was left for us and it was easy to get in. We had 2 separate rooms in one suite and a bathroom. It was clean and nicely decorated and reminded me more of visiting a small apartment than a regular hotel. We were...

I am a none smoker, and am allergic to smoke, but in this instance I find myself standing up for smokers. Their NO SMOKIING ANYWHERE ON THE PROPERTY rule is excessive. I was told that they previously had an designated smoking area but "no one was paying attention to the rules so they abandoned it". Disrespectful people will ALWAYS break...

We were in a cabin and enjoyed our stay. It is very close to west glacier. The staff were friendly, a nice breakfast and our cabin was very clean. There were activities for the kids and teenagers. We would stay here again!

Let's see, where to start. Customer Service. This is definitely not a high priority. When confirming our reservation I asked what room we were going to be in. I was told the couldn't give out room numbers because sometimes they have to rearrange. I was also told where the key to the room would be. I had to ask how...

We stayed in this hotel as it was central to glacier national park. We had a double room. It was roomy and of a reasonably clean standard. The breakfast was limited but okay m nothing to fill up on. Staff were pleasant. I would stay there again.
