We stayed in the full cabin #200. It was one of the first on the property, so it's pretty old, but clean and comfy!!! There are already many reviews, so I won't go into a ton of detail. The location is nice because you can walk to the stores to grab groceries or something to eat. very convenient. Not the... More

It's off the "main drag" (if you can call it that) of East Glacier, but the Dancing Bears is so amazing. Spacious rooms, comfortable beds, a fridge and microwave too. Big HDTV's with tons of channels will help you wind down after a day at the park. Speedy wifi that won't quite let's you check in and post your photos... More

Options for accomodations are limited in East Glacier, but we really enjoyed staying at the Dancing Bears Inn. Location isn't optimal, but host was great, room was clean (somewhat small), noise level was fine and we would stay there again if in that area. Didn't get to partake in breakfast as we hit the road before 6AM, but it looked... More

We stayed at the Dancing bears inn cabin #813 August 17th and 18th 2014. It is a beautiful cabin! We were very impressed. The owner Randy is a great guy who made sure our stay was fantastic! Close to two medicine (we took a couple different hikes here, just beautiful)! and close to st. marys entrance which we went through... More

We ended our week long trip in Glacier with a stay at the DBI. IT was a fluke, we originally intended to spend the last night in West Glacier but it was $75 to leave the rental there so we planned to drive back to East Glacier first thing in the morning. Then they changed the EB schedule and we... More

We recently spent two weeks in the Tetons, Yellowstone, and Glacier. Dancing Bears was the best place we stayed in those two weeks. We found most hotels in the area to be "luxury" and far beyond our budget or so minimal that they were barely liveable. Dancing Brear has very mice rooms, good beds with wonderful pillows, a very helpful... More

I have never had a more hospitable time at a hotel than I did at the Dancing Bears Inn. Desiree and Randy helped me with my every need and without a complaint. They truly care about their customers and want them to enjoy their stay. I was only planning to stay one night and they were able to move things... More

The Inn is on the small side and the owners are nice and personable. Unlike some of the other places in Glacier, they have TV and A/C. We chose not to stay at any of the old lodges in Glacier because of no A/C, TV or elevators. I would recommend this if you are going to stay in East Glacier.... More

Context: Staying here as a launch point to hike trails in Two Medicine, Glacier National Park Pros: Clean, roomy cottage like room, with very helpful on site staff. Breakfast area open from 6 AM to 10 PM, with juices, milks, breakfast burritos, yogurt, fruit, bread for sandwiches - quite a selection and open a significant amount of time, into the... More

What a pleasant experience. The couple who manages the hotel are SUPER, always available with a cheerful smile. Breakfast is really more than breakfast as it's out ALL day. Great way to grab something for the next day if you have an early departure time. Cabins are cozy and no noise bothered us. What a really quaint place to hang... More
