This small lodge is located near the West entrance to the Park and is very comfy and nice. It;s a little hard to find (just off a side street that runs between a gas station and the Beldon Inn restaurant, across from the train station) and the sign is a bit subtle, but its really quite nice. The rooms are... More

Glacier Guides is overall excellence in a lodging experience literally across the street from the gates of West Glacier. We stayed four nights in East Glacier, two nights in Wateron-Glacier in Alberta, and two nights in West Glacier and wished we could have stayed longer in West Glacier. The rooms are large, comfortable, eco-friendly, and rustic with all the modern... More

We booked this room on a whim and were swept away by the beauty and European charm of this place. We were greeted by Don, who was friendly, helpful, and generous with his time. He made us feel right at home, offering us snacks, wine glasses, tea and coffee when we arrived. It felt like real hospitality. We ended up... More

I can't say enough great things about the Glacier Guides Lodge. It starts with the innkeeper Jennifer. She's exactly what you would want in a hostess--service-oriented, knowledgeable, inexhaustible, quality conscientious...and always going out of her way to ensure that you're having a great time. And all her suggestions were spot-on. She sent us to a lot of places that the... More

The 12 room lodge is off the road among tall trees and wildflowers. Helpful advice from resident staff can guide guests for activities. Nothing fancy; just what a guest needs for a visit to the park. The breakfast allowed sharing of experiences with other guests. There are so many options for hiking, sightseeing, rafting that help needed from staff and... More

This is a lovely, small lodge with only 12 rooms, located back away from the road and railroad in West Glacier. The rooms are well appointed and so clean you'd think it was brand new. The continental breakfast is a truly healthy assortment of organic breakfast foods, including gluten free breads and cereals. What makes this lodge stand out is... More

Context: My wife and I were spent a week at Glacier National Park, and our first three nights were here. Spent the next three at the Rising Sun Motor Inn (St. Mary Lake region), and the last night in East Glacier at the Dancing Bear Inn. Glacier Guides was the highlight of the three, although it was wise to spend... More

We would have loved to have stayed at Glacier Guides Lodge the entire time we were in the park, but I could only get reservations for one night during the week of our trip. The room was comfortable and cozy, breakfast was delicious, our host was most helpful, and the setting was lovely. The lodge is very convenient to the... More

From the moment we checked in until the moment we left this was an excellent experience. After staying for two nights at the VERY disappointing Glacier Park Lodge, we were fortunate enough to stay for one night at Glacier Guides Lodge. First of all, this is the greenest hotel we've ever stayed in - and the attention to detail is... More

All of the reviews we have read on Glacier Guides Lodge are True! This is truly a wonderful place to stay - with a B&B style atmosphere in a quiet setting, that is located close to the West Glacier entrance. Very personable service! Jennifer was a wonderful lodge host who was always so pleasant and helpful. Always offered great suggestions... More
