My family and I travel to Glacier 3 times a year and over the years have stayed at virtually all of the hotels on the west and east side. This one is nothing special, the owners were friendly but with the price tag I can see why. The prices are very high for this area. Across town, the hotels charge... More

Me and my mother absolutely love this place! Stayed here twice already in between trips to and from Canada to Montana and were beyond pleased both times. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and flexible to your every need (including hunger); very affordable; and great midway stop for the trip location! The rooms are great and cozy and clean... More

I'd planned to spend one night here during an unusually cold snap in December (minus 30 below), but my car wouldn't start when I tried to leave. They let me stay the whole day in my room without charging me, and the manager spent hours on the phone with me trying to find mechanics, replacement vehicles, etc. Could not have... More

The managers, Randy and Desiree, went above and beyond to make sure that all of our needs were covered. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and cozy with everything you need including a flat screen tv and kitchenette area with a fridge, microwave, and sink. They are pet friendly too. We will definitely stay here again if we make it back... More

A little pricey for what it is but a quaint room that was clean and well managed. The front desk clerk helped me out to find what I needed as well as cut me a small break on the room rate. Given the limited choices in this area, this was a welcomed stay during my trip.

I traveled through East Glacier, MT a couple of weeks ago and needed a place to stay. Only so many hotels open this time of year, I pulled in to the 1st one - glad that I did! The Dancing Bears Hotel had a very friendly and helpful staff and some REAL NICE rooms. Don't let the "mom & pop"... More

There aren't many choices of places to stay in East Glacier. Dancing Bears Inn is just round the corner from the train station and the more expensive Glacier Park Lodge, where many park tours depart from. The owners were really friendly and helpful. Nice clean room, lovely complimentary toiletries, good free wifi connection, all day snacks, fridge and microwave in... More

We had stayed two nights at the Mountain Pine, but they were closing for the season and so we moved over here, and thus were able to compare the two establishments. Dancing Bear was considerably pricier, but the room was larger, had much better wi-fi, better furnished, had nicer toiletries, and they offer breakfast and snack foods from early morning... More

We stayed for two nights at the Dancing Bears and were very pleasantly surprised. The managers, Randy and Desiree, are very friendly and pleasant, the rooms are fresh and comfortable and the breakfast gets the job done. In addition, the inn is close to the train station and an entrance to Glacier National Park.

We stayed here for three nights. The managers were quite accommodating. The room was all we needed to stay comfortable and clean. We spent the days sightseeing and doing day pack trips in the park. Easy parking and off the main highway, so no noise. Our stove was right in the room, no forced air in our room. It kept... More
