I would rate this a 4.5 and would definitely stay here again because the room is very up to date for the area. The breakfast is good and wholesome and the staff (Don in our case) was super. The reasons I did not give them a 5 include our room did not have black-out drapes or shades. We draped the... More

Second time at the lodge. Stayed the last night of week-long GNP camping trip. No complaints! Staff was courteous, rooms were clean, wi fi worked and food was good. Great place to relax before driving home.

Nestled in the forest across US 2 from the West Glacier Amtrak Station, Glacier Guides was a top notch experience. I can add my voice to the chorus praising the friendliness of the innkeeper and staff. The landscaping with native flowers and cozy back patio made it feel like home. I loved the common areas, which came with rocking chairs,... More

Small, newer lodge located close to the West Glacier entrance. There is wi-fi and satellite TV. However, cell service is limited (but its limited in most areas anyway) The staff are fantastic! We took amtrak from Chicago and arrived almost 8 hours late...but even at 1:00am, we were still picked up and taken to the Lodge - Thank you Jennifer!!... More

This is a little gem tucked back in the trees on the West side of Glacier Nat'l Park. Very clean and quiet. Patio and deck both perfect for enjoying the surroundings. Jennifer was very helpful with info about hikes, photo opportunities and dining choices. Would definitely stay here again & recommend it to others.

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
