We had the opportunity to book the historic clarke cottage during our christmas vacation to glacier park and were so happy to have done so. The cabin is incredible to see and be in, the excellent care in maintaining the archetectual details would delight any history buff. The staff were alao very nice and the location to the park is...

Belton Chalet has an awesome location right at the West Entrance to Glacier National Park. We stayed in the Clark cabin. Very comfortable place to stay. Our only issue was that outdoor lights at night made the room a little brighter than we like. Perhaps some blackout shades would help. The train comes by several times a day, and the... More

Together with friends we spent 3 nights at the Belton. Very pleasant front of house. We enjoyed the old world feel of the place and its proximity (easy walk) to the few restaurants in West Glacier. The rooms were comfortable and we enjoyed the ambience of the wooden exterior and interior. The train noise was not a problem. The tap... More

This is one of two of the best places to stay on the west side--MacDonald Lodge being the other. Location here is just outside the park, but easy access to the train, shops, laundry, and public transport. An oasis of civility with small but immaculate and historically outfitted rooms on several floors; wonderful porches and seating areas, lovely gardens, and... More

This is a nicely restored hotel originally built to service rail travelers. We had a room overlooking the road and railroad tracks but up the hill enough to have some view. We had access to a porch with rocking chairs - a great place to sip late afternoon wine. Our room on the main floor was clean and a bit... More

Our room was a basic as it was in the past. No phone, no TV and it was wonderful. The floors and furniture have so much character that you almost expect a "visitor" from the past around each corner. Staff were awesome and gave us loads of information about West Glacier Park. Hotel is right at the entrance to West... More

Took advantage of their last weekend of the season special. Very nicely restored Swiss style chalet. Very clean with friendly staff. Conveniently located close to the Glacier Park entrance and the AMTRAK station. The grounds are beautifully kept and they have a separate restaurant next door.

Interesting property with beautiful historical features. The room itself wasn't anything special, and half of the rooms look over the parking lot (we had one of these). But the fireplace in the main entry hall is beautiful, and there is fresh coffee every morning. The restaurant was great and we spent both nights there, drinking and eating various huckleberry concoctions... More

This is a beautiful property, historic and lovingly restored. As a huge bonus, the dining room is fantastic, as is the Tap Room. Sit outside for dinner and watch the train come in. See how the disembarking passengers marvel at their surroundings. If you arrive by train, the hotel staff will meet your train. Stay here for a great experience.

Overall I enjoyed my stay. I did not pick this hotel, it was chosen by Road Scholars for their hiking trip through Glacier. That should tell you something - they would not pick an unacceptable hotel. The rooms were kept clean - the staff is as friendly as everyone says. Had a massage and the therapist was very good. The... More
