This Inn has great rooms, 2 double beds, pull out couch and 2 twin beds in the loft. Very comfy and roomy. We had a bit of trouble finding the door to check in, the Inn also serves as a meeting place for glacier tours and has lots of buses and people during the day. But early morning and late... More

Worth going just for the view! You get an amazing view overlooking the glacier as you eat. The food was tasty but a little overpriced - which you expect being in the middle of nowhere. Theres is quite a large menu to chose from. The only negative was the staff seemed very concerned with getting a good tip and interrupted... More

Pros: Dinner at the restaurant was tasted good and the waiter was very nice. View from the windows of the restaurant was of the icefields, which was great. Cons: The price was SO high. The sweet and sour chicken was a little chewy.

Stayed here two nights and had a decent stay. Glacier view rooms have a smallish window on the front side of the building looks out at the glacier (hence the name). Window is smallish but with that view we pulled the chairs and small table over and couldn't stop looking. Room was nothing special and there was no a/c but... More

OK, it was written...but how can be possible in 2014 not to have the wi-fi? The room was spacious but when we arrived there were no towels...the bathroom was not cleaned and there were hair of the former clients, the beds were done in a terrible way, the price was very expensive compare to the service that was absolutely poor...

We stayed here for one night, breaking our journey up the Icefields Parkway and allowing time to visit the glacier and the Skywalk. We arrived after the advertised check-in time, but our room was not immediately ready. Another couple were already complaining that their room was not ready, but they were abruptly told that this was because "housekeeping are very... More

We stayed at the Glacier View Inn on our recent trip to Canada and dined at the restaurant one night for dinner. It is quite pricey for what it was, mainly Chinese food but a great variety of dishes and it was all delicious. Dined with our children and they too enjoyed the food. The view from our table was...

We stayed at the hotel and ate dinner here. It's not cheap but consider the location and the view you're going to get from your table! Service was excellent, very friendly and helpful staff. It is mostly Chinese food but there are plenty of other options.

stopped for a lunch and found this is nothing more than a low rate chinese food establishment. very dissapointed that this type of facility can be located in a national park. the contracting of this type of service by Brusters just shows they are only interested in profit and the business does not expect repeat customers, only bus tours with...
