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

It can be difficult to find a place to stay in the dead of winter on the east side of Glacier National Park. Most places are closed until summer. Luckily Dancing Bears Inn is open year round. Our room was clean and warm, with a comfortable bed and a flat-screen TV with a lot of channels. The only negative I... More

Dancing Bears Inn took excellent care of us! We happened to be in Glacier during a historic 8-inch snowfall.We barely made it from West Glacier to Dancing Bears...where we met Vince, who was managing. Because of the weather the previous tenants had not vacated our cabin (they were stuck in the snow.) Vince took care of both groups. He allowed... More
