We recently spent two weeks in the Tetons, Yellowstone, and Glacier. Dancing Bears was the best place we stayed in those two weeks. We found most hotels in the area to be "luxury" and far beyond our budget or so minimal that they were barely liveable. Dancing Brear has very mice rooms, good beds with wonderful pillows, a very helpful... More

I have never had a more hospitable time at a hotel than I did at the Dancing Bears Inn. Desiree and Randy helped me with my every need and without a complaint. They truly care about their customers and want them to enjoy their stay. I was only planning to stay one night and they were able to move things... More

The Inn is on the small side and the owners are nice and personable. Unlike some of the other places in Glacier, they have TV and A/C. We chose not to stay at any of the old lodges in Glacier because of no A/C, TV or elevators. I would recommend this if you are going to stay in East Glacier.... More

Context: Staying here as a launch point to hike trails in Two Medicine, Glacier National Park Pros: Clean, roomy cottage like room, with very helpful on site staff. Breakfast area open from 6 AM to 10 PM, with juices, milks, breakfast burritos, yogurt, fruit, bread for sandwiches - quite a selection and open a significant amount of time, into the... More

What a pleasant experience. The couple who manages the hotel are SUPER, always available with a cheerful smile. Breakfast is really more than breakfast as it's out ALL day. Great way to grab something for the next day if you have an early departure time. Cabins are cozy and no noise bothered us. What a really quaint place to hang... More

There were limited options in East Glacier and we were unfamiliar with the area. Hotel is old and furnishings show it. But the place was clean and staff very nice. Located close to east entrance of Glacier and there was a good restaurant (Luna's with the best homemade Huckleberry pie) nearby.

Randy and Desarae were awesome. Hot water didnt work, so got upgraded to a really nice house. This is the perfect place to stay if you want to enjoy the park but do not want to camp/RV. I was here for work so I did not get to play. But if I ever get the chance to return, and need... More

The on-site managers were very helpful. The breakfast spread was quite good. The hotel parking lot is paved, but none of the nearby streets are, so dust baths are common. The parking layout is absurd. One side of the car must be tight against some wooden posts, so staying within the lines and being able to open both doors on... More

Great motel for the price. Clean., clean, clean, and cozy but out of date. I loved it. You can walk to town in minutes. When I first drive up I did have concerns, but it was a nice place. A very nice married couple run the motel and they were very helpful. The tiniest cutest cleanest breakfast bar you will... More

. I made a reservation online for one bed/jetted tub/shower in room 15 for $136.80. When I checked in yesterday they assigned us one bed(queen size)/shower/ kitchen in room 8 for the same amount. I was upset but didnt complain. The bathroom and kitchen was awesome. It was remodeled. The big plus is pet friendly. The owners was awesome.
