Just spent a peaceful week at Village Inn. We used it as a homebase for hiking and rafting trips. Easy access to Glacier National Park shuttles, National Park Service evening programming, and basic necessities (groceries, laundry, restaurant). The hotel is quite simple, but clean and the views are the best. Each room faces the lake. It's a great place to... More

We had a room on the bottom floor so we literally stepped out our door to the edge of the lake. They had chairs for you to sit in and that I did! I came out early in morning and had some coffee and read a book. It was so peaceful. My son even got off his ipad for awhile... More

Title pretty much says it all. The facility itself is quite dated, with a bathroom that could really use a bit more shelf-space and somewhat icky rugs and bedspreads. We also encountered issues with insects being able to get in through the screening (more like around it, since it isn't a tight fit on the casement windows). Still, being right... More

It has been a while since we were here but the recent reviews confirm that this place hasn't changed. Rooms all face the lake, which is unusual for a hotel. It is located right on the western side of Lake McDonald which means that the sunrises are spectacular. Rooms are spacious and very well appointed. The adjoining restaurant is very... More

Upon arriving at Village Inn, I was reminded of the many beach town resorts that I have visited. It was much more commercial than the lodges and inns of East Glacier. However, the room was adequate with an amazing lake view, and it slept 5. The bathroom was large enough and always had hot water when needed. Kayaks were available... More

If you are looking for a five star hoity-toity snob appeal lodge, go to the glacier grand. If you want quiet, adequate lodging at an affordable price, and on the shores of a most beautiful lake, then this is the one for you. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

I booked a room in early February for August; our room view was Lake McDonald! Absolutely amazing! We were thrilled that we arrived late in the afternoon to really appreciate our location and lake. I could go on and on ~ staff were friendly, room was very accommodating and clean but, really, it's about the location! Amazing ~ this place... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while hiking in glacier. The view is beautiful, and the lake is amazing. Our beds were comfortable, and there was wifi, but no appliances and the rooms were small. No TVs, and very few outlets. The room was clean, and very close to gift shops, restaurants, and more. I recommend this hotel.

We arrived around midnight, so could not see anything out the back of the hotel. As soon as I woke up in the morning I peeked out the back curtains, and had to wake up the whole family to show them the fantastic view. We had spent 3 days driving- and this view alone made it all worth while. The... More

We stayed here with friends. We each had a beautiful view from the balcony of Lake McDonald and the mountains behind. The rooms were very basic, yet clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. Very quiet, relaxing and convenient to everything.
