I booked a room in their back location, not their main location off of the main highway. This was a great decision. The room was a perfect size, not the fanciest, but it was a pleasant sleep. Wonderful view of river and Glacier park from the back rooms. Parking is perfect. You are even able to have a bonfire at... More

We spent the day around Glacier Park, and decided to stay the night last minute. West Glacier had a room, and we took it, at $90/night. I really can't compare it to other hotels in the area, but given its location, we were glad we stayed the night to extend our visit to the following day. We wanted a place... More

As we had never been to Glacier, we didn't know what to expect. Coming into West Glacier after seeing so many places on the way, we were glad to have a place to stay that was right at the Park. So, we were able to keep driving to a minimum, reserving our time to see the beautiful Glacier National Park.... More

Wonderful experience for the area. The location was nice and very clean with rustic cabin features. A small refrigerator would have been nice for drinks and fruit but then it is a rustic cabin. I would stay there again in a heart beat.

We stayed in a room with a queen bed. Walked in off the street to book site unseen. I thought $90 was ok for a queen room. The only thing the room had was a bed. No fridge, no tea or coffee, no TV, no wi fi and only 1 available power out let. The shower was difficult and conditions... More

If your goal is park time, hiking, and enjoying a quick entrance into the park everyday, this is your place. Basic, rustic accommodations for those who are not looking for an upscale lodge. We stayed here to sleep, and enjoyed the outdoor picnic area for early morning eating. No refrigerator or coffee pot here, but you are next door to... More

That's about all I can say for the amenities. Rooms are very old with cypress plywood paneling, a shower so narrow it was hard to turn around, no TV or wifi, but there was a fire pit on the property and it is next door to a cafe. If all you want is a very basic rustic place to sleep... More

We understood this would be a bare bones motel but expected a little more. Clean but grungy at the same time. Very firm beds. Could hear people talking behind us. Barely room to turn around in the shower stall and no hot water the first morning. Made us pay for the second night we had reserved when we checked in... More

Wasn't sure what to expect with the mixed reviews, but we found the cabins to be really great and would recommend for families with realistic expectations. Perfect for families of 4 or less (I think they have one larger cabin too). For starters, they were clean. The beds were firm, the kitchenette stocked with pots, plates, utensils, etc. Rooms had...

Pros: The motel is centrally located right outside the West Glacier national park entrance with an okay but pricey restaurant and general store right next to it. Cons: The motel does NOT provide Wifi. There is no mini fridge or microwave or coffee maker or TV in the room. The bathroom is tiny and there is no room to put... More
