We stayed at the Belton Chalet for only one night after a flight to Spokane in anticipation of one day in Glacier National Park. We didn't arrive until almost 9:00 p.m. and were so hungry after a long day of travel. We called just before we arrived in West Glacier to see if the restaurant was still open as we'd... More

It was so fun to stay in a place that had been so painstakingly preserved. You will find no TV or special frills in the chalet, but you get peace in return. It is close to the entrance of Glacier, and within walking distance of groceries and other stores. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

I've given the Belton Chalet a rare five stars, because the chalet delivers exactly what it promised. It's not luxurious; rather, it is rustic, historic, and nicely preserved. We stayed in the Lewis Cabin, in front of the main chalet, and it was sunny, airy, clean, and comfortable. We also asked for a tour of the main lodge, and the... More

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
