We had a camper cabin. Was nice and had 3 beds so we could fit all 4 of us back there. Breakfast was good - not only buffet but you can get eggs and pancakes/waffle to order. I'd stay again. Yes, the train can be heard but didnt bother us. I slept well. G Man

I had originally booked 3 nights at Glacier haven inn and since I was booking just 3 months in advance for a trip to Glacier it was all I could find at the time. I ended up changing that to 1 night since we were able to get cabins in Apgar and St.Mary. I called to cancel completely about 2... More

Glacier Haven Inn is a bit out of the way, actually closer to West Glacier than East Glacier. It is between the Hwy and the train tracks. I actually made this reservation when I read about the train. Thought it would be fun. The train did not keep us awake. We were exhausted from all the hiking we did in... More

This is a hard one. The owners were great. Very helpful and knowledgable about the park (Glacier Park) and they provided great meals (not included in price). BUT the kitchen shut down after breakfast Sunday, and being remote we had to microwave what we had or drive 45 minutes to the Park restaurants. This place is located between East and... More

The owner is a great guy! But the noise from the trains all night was ridiculous! Booked for two nights...stayed one and left by 7 am. Could not even try to fathom the thought of another nightless sleep. Was really looking forward to the yummy breakfast :(

The room isnt something you expect to see after paying the price for the room.. Plus the room was cute! Wouldnt recommend to someone tall. Short ceilings. Downside! Theres a train feet away from the rooms and a train flying by ever hour or so... All day and night long! You cant get sleep unless you have good ear plugs... More

Getting a room at or near Glacier National Park during the peak summer months can be a challenge. We decided to stay outside the park in the Essex area which is a somewhat long drive to West Glacier (20 miles) but reasonably close to the Two Medicine and Many Glacier regions. We booked the Glacier Haven Inn and it was... More

The accommodation was clean and well maintained. There dining room was exceptional and their meals were all home made.There was no mention of the Highway being 50 ' in front of your accommodation and a train line 50' out the back of the unit. Due to the ongoing noise we were unable to open the windows. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND... More

August 3-6, 2014. Yes, the train goes by and the highway is near, but everything else is picture book perfect. I've never been in a motel that was so clean. The beds are great, you want for nothing and it's very centrally located. The owners are very helpful and can really help with how to see the park if you... More

We stayed at the Inn Aug 1-5, 2014 while we explored Glacier Park. The hotel was super clean and comfortable. We slept well even though a train and highway border the inn (ear plugs and a fan help). Can't say enough positive things about the family that owns and works at the hotel.They are gracious, kind and knowledgeable about the... More
