We booked a room at glacier park motel a few weeks in advance as we planned on arriving very late on Christmas day. On Christmas eve the staff called us with instructions on where to find our room key as no one would be at the desk for our late arrival. They left us a lovely welcome note with very... More

We had a good time at the Western inn Glacier. the location is very convenient. Half way between the Glacier Park and Whitefish. We were upgraded for free to a suite that was about 500 square feet. The place had some wear and tear but was very clean and had nice colors and decor highlights. The full kitchen was very... More

Accommodation was pretty basic but adequate. Fridge, microwave and laundry facilities were useful. TV had to be reset every time you put it on which could be a bit frustrating. Good location which was easy to find and it was nice and close to Glacier Park. Staff were friendly and very helpful, breakfast was fine for us as we took... More

Spartan accommodations, cold showers, and bad coffee. No bureaus to put away clothes. No counters. Tiny bathroom. Two folding chairs. Proximity to Glacier National Park is good. Good breakfast place down the road. Laundry on premises.

Our room was small, cute and clean but the bed was horrible. First we have a queen bed at home and this was not a queen. It leaned to one side and sagged in the middle, no support whatsoever. It was on wheels making it difficult to sit up and read or watch tv. The internet worked off and on.... More

I was in the motel for a night- easy access from airport and fairly comfortable stay. The room includes two double beds, good size kitchen with dining space. The room was clean and the morning complimentary breakfast was good. I will stay again if I make a trip to Glacier National Park.

On the plus side, the staff was fabulous, and the motel is located about 30 minutes from Glacier National Park. **However** the room reeked of B.O. when we arrived, and the odor remained our entire trip. The carpet was so dirty I had to use flip flops. We asked for a non-smoking room, but it was clear someone had smoked... More

When we first booked this motel, we were a bit concerned. Even though the reviews were good, we had our doubts. This place, under new ownership for about a year or so and now called Western Inn was great. We expected a room with two double beds... instead, had two rooms each with a double bed. The place was clean,... More

Place was clean and tidy and breakfast good. Help very friendly. However, the wall tent for $55/night was pretty bad. The constant flapping in the wind was aggravating but the worst thing was the queen bed was a saggy air mattress (in a nice frame) so everytime one of us got up the other would sink down. Other than that... More
