We stayed at Glacier Guides for 4 nights in mid-September, and had a wonderful stay. This is the place to book in advance for you special Glacier NP vacation. Rooms are large and modestly furnished, with an eye to simplicity, and are impeccably clean. The beds are supportive, and have simple duvets, and are triple sheeted. The common room on... More

We stayed here in late as an alternative to lodging in the park (which was fully booked). We were very happy with this small lodge. The room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfasts were fine, though they were not serving any cooked foods (fruit, cereal, breads and yogurt). It's very close to the park entrance, which made day trips into... More

The rooms are newer and it's located close to the park entrance. This was a great value and was above what we expected. If you're looking for easy access to the park in a clean, newer room then I would recommend staying here.

Glacier Guides Lodge is a great place to spend a night or two when visiting Glacier National Park. It sits close by the West Entrance, but is far enough back from the road (and railroad) that it is very quiet and beautiful. The accommodations are top notch and the staff very accomodating.

We stayed here in September and liked these lodgings very much. The staff is welcoming, the location is quiet, and the rooms are cosy and updated. The only downside is that our room was above the kitchen, so there was noise early in the morning from the staff preparing breakfast. Suggestion would be to ask for an upstairs room, but... More

Great location if you want to enter park from west entrance. Lodge was very clean. Healthy b'fast with granola bars, apples, etc available to take when hiking. Jen was helpful suggesting trails as the weather was not the best when we were there. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here 9/14 & 9/15/15 and were very placed with the value for the money. The staff was friendly and helpful with advice. Their breakfasts were home made and always good and plentiful. I still think about the raisin toast.

Wonderful place. Nice and quiet off the main road. Smaller establishment so did not have a crowded feeling. Room was spacious and very nice. Easy access to park entrance across the highway. Very comfortable setting. Liked the tables and chairs right outside the room on the deck.

We booked Glacier Guides based on a recommendation from a friend. We had been staying in Glacier National Park but all the lodges were closed for the season part-way through our trip, which is why we booked Glacier Guides. We were very pleasantly surprised. I expected just a basic lodging with guided trips, but it was more like a hotel... More

When visiting Glacier National Park there are lots of alternatives with lodges inside the park. When it approaches the end of the season these all closed and one needs to stay close to the park. We had a poor experience at St Mary so moved to West Glacier. This was far superior,included breakfast had good service and friendly staff and... More
