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... More

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. I stumbled upon Western Inn Glacier Park Motel while looking online. I booked a room with a kitchenette which was perfect for our needs. The staff was friendly and the room... More

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.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.... More

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... More

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... More
