My girlfriend and I stayed here before a day trip into Glacier. The location is wonderful. The hotel itself has a very rustic look and feel, especially in the rooms. The rooms were small but cozy and very clean, with little noise from the highway or other guests. One downside is the lack of an on-site eatery.

Twas the night before Thanksgiving (almost midnight actually). AMTRAK pulled into West Glacier station a dark windswept silent location. (How could it have left two hours late yet be only a hour late to Glacier?) The train came to a halt. I disembarked. Just me. 300 passengers stayed on for Westward destinations. The train pulled away. It was very quiet.... More

This historic hotel is well restored. The attached restaurant serves good food. The staff are polite. I visited in Sept 2014-- off peak season & the hotel offers the much needed shuttle service at a price of usd 10 per head to traverse between lake mcdonald & the hotel. This hotel is well known for another quirky reason--ghosts are rumoured... More

I had a brief stay in a balcony room at this historic hotel on my way to Glacier NP. The room was rustic but functional and clean. The balcony was a wonderful place to rest in the evening and watch the trains go by and sun go down. While the bathroom was small, the toiletries were of a higher quality... More

We loved the Adobe House which allowed all 6 of us to stay in a unique property owned by the Belton Chalet. The house is up the road from the Chalet so it is quiet with 3 sleeping areas, 2 bathrooms, a living room, dining room and kitchen. Outside there is a camp fire area and a wrap around deck.... More

This is an historic railroad hotel right across the street from the heavily trafficked BNSF mainline. The hotel offers the charm and experience of a time long since past. We arrived at 2:15am in the dark by train, and right there waiting for us was a friendly member of the hotel staff to take us right to the door. If... More

My husband and I arrived in West Glacier by train at 6:15a.m. We were greeted by a member of the Belton staff, who at 6:15am was very friendly and accommodating. When we entered the lobby there was a fire burning in the fireplace, hot coffee on the side board, and another friendly face to greet us. Check in is not... More

This place has a lot of character and charm. Wouldn't call it rustic, but no phone or tv and it's across the street from RR tracks. Trains come through regularly at all hours but no whistles after we retired. At least I didn't hear any. Clean and comfortable and close to the Park.

The Belton Chalet is beautifully restored inside and out! The staff were so helpful and friendly. Gave us wine glasses and visited with us as we enjoyed our wine. A fire in the fireplace added to the ambiance. Train sounded only twice during the night. Not an issue for us. The only suggestion for improvement would be to fix the... More

Belton Chalet was our fifth and final lodge of a three week tour of national park lodges. We made our reservations a year ahead of time for a room with a balcony. Our room was clean and well-maintained. There is a limited amount of space for luggage, almost no drawer space, and few places to sit in the room, but... More
