Glacier National Park has been a bucket list destination for a while. Over the Fourth of July weekend, I had it happen. The location was wonderful - I definitely preferred the east glacier area to West Glacier. There were hiking paths right outside the door! We stayed two nights in two different rooms (should have booked a few weeks earlier)... More

This is no frills but it is located at the east end of going to the sun road which I prefer. It was clean and had everythin one needs in the room or nearby. We took a few trips to the town of St Mary's for dinner and other grocery items.

Our accommodations were definitely neglected and substandard. Our cabin looked as if it hadn't been painted or properly maintained since the Great Depression. After one minute in the cabin, we returned to the front desk and asked to be moved to one of the other sections that did not look so primitive — some rooms other than the cabins actually... More

If you are looking for a lot of frills, this isn't for you, but the cabins are extremely clean and the beds were very comfortable. The view is unsurpassed and the convenience of being on the Going-To-The-Sun Road with the free shuttle service right there makes it a very good place to stay. Two Dog Flats Restaurant and a little... More

I have been here quite a few summers consecutively and dearly love the place. The fresh air and the view of the milky way by far make up the fact that this is not a luxury hotel. All of the accomodations are clean and supplied with coffeemakers, hair dryers, and irons...although who needs to iron clothes out here! I like... More

Best part about this hotel was the great location. Located in the park near the east end, easy day trips throughout the park including the the Many Glacier area. Also beautiful views in all directions, able to park directly in front of our room and chairs provided outside of the room to better enjoy the view. The room itself was... More

Comfortable place to relax after a long day of driving. Small rooms with beds and a bathroom. A gift shop and a nice restaurant with a simple but good menu. The kids enjoyed playing outside the cabin with a grand view of the surrounding mountains.

We stayed at the hotel for two nights. Fortunately we had an end room so only had noise coming from one side. Our neighbors were early risers and slammed the door several times while they were packing their stuff out. But the hotel can't control that. We had a couple of nice adirondack chairs outside of our room and the... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this property's offerings. The view from our little cabin of the mountains was perfect! Many other properties in park had only parking lot views. The small cabin was the right size for us and our stuff. The real treat was not struggling for a parking spot - pull up in front of your own place!... More

Well located spot! We stayed in the motor inn which was nothing fancy but very clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the provided coffeemaker and the two wooden chairs outside of our room where we sat and enjoyed our coffee in the am and wine in the eve!
