We were afraid we wouldn't find a room in East Glacier Park, but found the Dancing Bear Inn. It's off the main road, has been remodeled and has a log cabin feeling with knotty pine. The room was very small, but there was a sitting room and a nice small remodeled bathroom. The office was available from a covered entrance.... More

Pet friendly was one of the main reasons we stayed here, and being close to East Glacier sites like Two Medicine and Many Glacier. Clean rooms, comfortable bed. John the owner, very friendly and helpful! We would stay here again when traveling thru here.

John the owner was very friendly and accommodating. I brought my photography tour guests to stay there and we were made very comfortable and John had lot of info about the area and its wildlife to make sure our photo tour was as successful as possible in ways he could contribute. The property is an older one that has been... More

Cons: Parking was difficult. Rooms are old. Shower was small. Door to room was right next to office and so we had some noise. No place to eat continental breakfast. Pros: Staff is AMAZING!! Rooms were furnished nicely. Nice bottles of shampoo & conditioner. Snack items available all day. There are no blow dryers in the room, but they did... More

This is one of only a very few number of hotels within 100 miles that remain open after October 1st. We stayed here several years ago, as well, and found the accommodations acceptable, but in need of upgrades. The rooms, furniture, bedding, drapes, etc. are very old and worn. On the plus side, however, is that staff is friendly and... More

Very professional, made sure if we needed anything it was done, told us about great hiking trails and... More

Great location! We stayed in one of their houses-- Not fancy, but comfortable, private & convenient. Smooth, quick check-in, even though we were a bit early. House had washer & dryer which was very convenient. Only negative was in getting coffee for the room. We'd definitely stay again.

It is not so much about the cabins, but about the hospitality of the hosts...John and Jenn. Never have we stayed at a place in the U.S. or abroad, where the hosts have been more accommodating. They will, literally, move mountains to see to it that you are content and satisfied! Dancing Bears Inn has very comfortable, charming cabins, but... More

I rented cabin 200 with a few friends a couple of weeks ago. The cabin is 100 years old, but has been updated with all the comforts of home and has plenty of room for up to 10 people, comfortably. Free Wi-Fi was a bonus. John is an exceptional host. He was very knowledgeable about the park and extremely helpful... More
