The management was VERY accommodating when we arrived with a mix up on the reservation that must have been my fault. The owner has purchased several houses and also a second motel site in the town, and that is where he was able to place us. We were in a new building, full kitchen, very comfortable. We really liked it,... More

The room we had was small and somewhat dated. The management was outstanding! They are very helpful and very friendly. The room was adequate with a queen bed, microwave and refrigerated.it was quiet and had AC. They had snacks all day and good assortment of breakfast items. We did enjoy our stay.

Maybe some have good reviews because they didn't cancel, etc. However I see reviews on here of people who followed proper protocol for cancellation and didn't receive their refund..because they are liars and a scam. I booked a room 12/30/14 for 9/5/15. Our flight to leave Great Falls was changed in June to leaving around 7am instead of 2pm. So... More

We stayed here one night after arriving late on the train. They were gracious to pick us up and drive us to the hotel - a very short distance, but not great to walk with luggage. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We walked a couple blocks to the Trading Post the next morning to pick up our rental car... More

We rented 2 rooms for four of us over a 4 day period and enjoyed the convenience of Dancing Bears to the eastern parts of Glacier park such as Two Medicine Lake and Many Glacier. The rooms were very clean and the air conditioners worked well despite the heat. We also enjoyed the breakfast buffet because it allowed us to... More

Convenient to Glacier Park, but the room was small, tired. Putting the usual little tubes or organic this and that in the bathroom doesn't really alter the feeling of being cramped. Nice, helpful desk person. But of the many places we've stayed the last several weeks, this was of least value.

We normally stay in the park lodges, but we too early this year. We weren't paying attention when we booked, and thought the hotel was up by St. Mary's, so when I discovered the mistake, I went in with a negative outlook. Boy am I glad we made that mistake, I never would have discovered this gem otherwise. The price... More

With the lodges in the park on the East side still closed, Dancing Bears Inn is a perfectly positioned for your trips to Many Glacier and St. Mary's Lake. The Hotel staff are very warm, and it feels like home. All day breakfast, books for reading, tour recommendations, dining options in East Glacier etc. - they ensure that you have... More
