I assume if you are reading this review you are at least considering a vacation to Glacier National Park. Let me begin with the following statement: GO. The GNP area is gorgeous. The natural beauty in that area is unrivaled, in my opinion. Ok, now that we have that out of the way let me hit you with some useful... More

The facility was very nice. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The AC/Heater had a very good wall thermostat. Like all motels/hotels the blower was nosier than I liked. However, it is quieter than most. The staff was courteous and friendly and the common areas were clean and quiet. The desk clerk, upon check-in, stated that the breakfast was exceptional.... More

Our stay was a good one. Initially had some concerns about security in the parking area, but there were no problems (parked beside the Sheriff's vehicle). Breakfast was good, but the dining area could have been cleaner.

Stayed here for three nights, wish we had stayed longer. Room was clean and spacious with good toiletries and a coffee maker on hand. Now that is just the start. Upon entering the room we were not only pleased with the space and of course the extremely comfortable beds. But the outside view, as we overlooked the patio area, which... More

I had to ask for the price of the room while filling out paperwork and the front desk then had to look it up. I was refused any and all discounts with the reason being peak of a short tourist season. I had recently stayed at a hotel in AK with the best view of Mt. McKinley and I was... More

Great service, great facility, nice room, amazing breakfast... and a wonderful nights sleep. The hotel is well situated, too, near downtown... a nice walk to a wonderful restaurant (recommended by the front desk) for surprisingly good Italian food. Recommended!

Overall a nice hotel. Overpriced as all the hotels are in this area. Breakfast was good. Good location. Beds were old and we all (5) of us ended up with sore backs due to sagging mattresses. The pool was absolutely freezing that my kids could not enjoy it or us parents and outside hot tub was broken. We asked front... More

We were really underwhelmed by this hotel. Out of the three hotels we stayed during this vacation, this was the most expensive and the least luxurious. Much more expensive than the Hilton and much less comfortable than the Best Western. The included breakfast was kind of gross.
