Occasionally you'll find a budget motel with free coffee. But this place had a full on stocked breakfast that you could snack on whenever. The assortment was great- yogurt, granola, fruit, berries, cereal, breads, jams, frozen croissant sandwiches that you could microwave, etc. Way better than any other continental breakfast. Also, the room was stocked with menus of nearby restaurants... More

I only spent one night at the Dancing Bear but I enjoyed it! Room was cozy and bed comfy, the staff was nice. As a plus you can get good food a few steps away, at the Two Medicine grill. Last but not least, at this time of the year (mid October), it is one if the few places to... More

What an amazing little motel. We stayed in one of the Queen cabin rooms with the jetted tub and it was quite comfortable. The managers, Kim and CJ, were probably the most helpful and knowledgeable managers we have ever met. You could tell they are both passionate about what they do and that is surely a nice change from some... More

But...wow...not a wonderful night's sleep. We stayed in a queen room/double cabin and the thin walls and adjoining door to the next unit meant we heard the other couple talking, laughing, and their tv shows. This was in addition to the trains, late-arriving guests, and the howling wind. Maybe the rooms in the strip building would have been quieter. On... More

This might be the smallest room I've stayed in. Maybe for one person, not two. It's very close to a couple of restaurants. (Within a block). Breakfast is all day long. It's close to Glacier NP. Most of the facilities (hotels and restaurants) were closed on the train/NP side of the tracks, so finding this was nice.

A friendly place to stay, the manager and the rooms are---friendly. They provided us with bear spray while we were there, which we are glad that we did not have to use. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the manager very helpful---and friendly.

sweet little motel with nice room, great towels, wifi and probably the best staff anywhere. The managers Kim and CJ were beyond hospitable. they made us feel like we were their only guests and our needs were the most important thing. Absolutely great service and wonderful Montana warmth. Thanks again, ladies, for the enjoyable stay.

Vince probably is the best hotel manager I have encountered. He dealt with the minor problems we had immediately. He was very helpful with advice about the area. The hotel is run excellently. The only minor complaint is that at times the wi-fi was problematic. Definitely recommend Dancing Bears Inn.

We planned on camping in Glacier Park but there was a sudden snow storm and we weren't up for freezing in our tent. Vince was very sweet and accommodating and set us up with a beautiful room, food to eat, great stories, and a wonderful sense of humor. We're a traveling band, and Vince even played our music in the... More
