As most reviewers have stated, the view is stunning. Even if the rooms were not clean and comfortable, which they were, this would still be the place to stay in West Glacier. My wife and I stayed there for three nights in late June and we had a wonderful time. All rooms face the lake and there is a shared... More

We spent two nights here in July, if you are looking for a great place to begin your vacation in GNP this is it. The view is breathe taking. A person does not miss having a TV or a phone in your room. We did not eat in any of the restaurants in the area as we enjoy cooking our... More

As everyone has said, you are paying for the view. All rooms face the lake. Our first floor room had chairs sitting right outside our door to relax and enjoy the view. The room's decor was dated, but the room and facility was very clean. There are no TVs. Internet was available up by the office area. (I was in... More

We recently traveled to Glacier National Park and spent our first night at this inn. All I can say is WOW! What a great way to start off our vacation! The View was amazing! The rooms were cozy, clean and comfortable. Any one who travels to a lot of national parks(that means US!) knows that you are there for the... More

First of all, this is not a five star resort. A recent detractor whined that they already paid $25 to get in the park, and could come and go as they pleased, so why pay for the view? Never mind that the $25 is a deal in and of itself. It's not a monetary thing. There is something essentially lovely,... More

Yes, the view is stunning. Even when we were drenched and the skies were overcast, it was beautiful. But we're here to review the rooms. And unless xanterra made the view, I can't give them 5 stars for that. The lodge is a separate property and does not have the lakefront views. The Village Inn is the one located right... More

I've stayed at Lake McDonald Lodge and Glacier Guides, but Village Inn is my accommodation of choice. Glacier Guides has much better rooms but Village Inn has the view. I mean THE VIEW! All rooms look out over Lake McDonald to the Continental Divide. In clear weather the view is one of the iconic views of Glacier National Park. The... More

This may be the best view I have ever had from a hotel room-- well, besides the Four Seasons in Maui... AMAZING view of Lake MacDonald right from our room. Adirondack chairs right outside our door to help us slow down and take it all in. Yes, the room was pricey, but we were inside Glacier National Park and expected... More

View from rooms at back give direct view to the mountains over Lake McDonald. Rooms very clean. Rooms vary, but ours had main room (double and twin) and separate bedroom (double). Location was superb at West Glacier, and the staff was very helpful in recommending activities, and even offered to let us borrow bear spray for a hike. WIFI only... More
