“Wonderful Historic Lodge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Glacier Park Lodge celebrated its hundredth anniversary a year ago and it remains a beautiful property. The huge Douglas fir beams invite you into the lobby and your eyes follow them way up to a huge cathedral ceiling. It is a short drive to Glacier National Park with its spectacular scenery and hiking trails. Both the main dining room and the lounge have good food, beverages, and service. The rooms are adequate and although the bathrooms are small the peacefulness of this property is what counts. There are many areas to sit and read, work on puzzles which are scattered about, listen to music in the main lobby, play some golf, or take pictures from the back veranda.

Glacier Park Lodge offers an environment that is relaxing, quiet, and slow-paced. If you are looking for a park Lodge that allows for reading, listening to live Piano music in the lobby, sitting on the main balcony front or back with no purpose, a round of golf, a leisure walk around the property, sitting by a large stone fireplace (lobby), and a good meal - this is the place for you. The lodge is impressive as it was built in the early 1900s for the wealthy to relax, rest, and explore Glacier National Park. The building is constructed with large logs which add to the rustic feel and atmosphere. For the price, this is a great deal for a family or couple.

If you are looking for a flat screen TV, 600 count sheets, large bathroom with roomy shower, a fan over your bed, extensive dinner menu, coffee bar in the lobby (e.g., Starbucks), a large variety of "indoor" activities (e.g., movie theatre), this is likely not the best choice for you. The property is truly a "Lodge" in Glacier National Park.

Helpful Tips: The lodge is located near Glacier National Park. As a result, you should pack accordingly. Bring a coat for the chilly evenings. As the hotel has limited amenities (e.g., 24-hour hotel lobby store), you may want to stop on the way and buy some snacks, water, etc., for your room and snacking. Binoculars are recommended to truly enjoy the mountain scenery and wildlife.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main Lodge add to the feel of being in a "Lodge." However, they are also a bi...

See my review of the Lake McDonald Lodge for more detail. For more GNP accessible location and views, stay at McDonald. For best views, but more worn property, stay at Many Glacier. For golf, puzzles, E location, stay here. While at this Lodge, try Luna's near by for huckleberry pie. Best in or around the park. Also, drive up to the Prince Wales hotel in Canada. 2 hours but bring your passport. Lovely views there over a quaint summer Canadian vacation spot

We stayed at Lake McDonald Lodge, the lodge at Many Glaciers and Glacier Park Lodge on our visit to the park. We thought GP Lodge was by far the nicest of the 3 lodges. It is the newest, the most spacious, and the most up to date of the lodges. The grounds are pretty. The pool was not full when we were there, but it is a full size lap pool. The lobby is a grand space at this lodge and at the other 2 lodges. Food is the same at all 3 lodges.

The Lodge main hall is very nice. The rooms are less than impressive. The busses no longer run from the lodge. For the money stay at the Lake Mc Donald Lodge on the west side. Less money nicer place and you can take the bus tours from there.

This is a great place to spend a few days or even a week. It's a rustic lodge built in 1913, with many upgrades to present day conveniences, except there is no A/C in the rooms. This wasn't a problem for me as the temps at night were cool. Day time I didn't spend in the room as I was seeing the sights in the area, which are definitely worth seeing. The staff was friendly and the restaurant served great food!

While looking for lodging for East Glacier, this hotel did not come up in TripAdvisor. However, it came up on my GPS. What a gem! The lodge would be a great destination absent Glacier NP! Staff very friendly and helpful. Check-in took a few minutes, as they were training a new clerk after just opening 2 weeks prior. They were very nice, though, and that was the only minor hick-up in our stay. The views out the back of the lodge of the NP were magnificent. As were the views within this old lodge. Huge old black cottonwoods used to build lodge. WIFI only in lobby, but it might work in your room if in the main part of the lodge. Great Northern Restaurant in the lodge was very tasty. If staying on the west side of Glacier NP, don't miss this lodge. Located outside the park.

Room Tip: Try to stay on the back side for best views of mountains; but view good either side. May be quieter...
