“Great location on the west side of the park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We spent 2 nights in the cabins at Apgar and they were just perfect for us. Our cabin had a full service kitchen and it was wonderful to cook bacon & eggs and have a fresh cup of coffee on a crisp Glacier morning. Each cabin has a picnic table and our cabin had a small enclosed front porch with table & chairs to sit at and relax. The check in experience was not all that good. The lady that waited on us was very unfriendly and seemed irritated when asked simple questions. The location was wonderful..you could walk to the lake and the view was wonderful. If you are a person who need new and updated these may not be for you as they are older and renovated. We loved them and will return.

The location of the lodges is just fantastic. You are inside the park, and right on the lake. Though the rooms aren't directly on the lake (for that there's the other lodge next door). It's been reasonably kept, and are quaint - in line with what to expect as these aren't open all year around. We stayed only for a couple of nights and found it quite OK. The restaurant next door is very convenient, be it for dinner or an early breakfast. The only downside on the stay was that the Wifi didn't work - they promised it but wasn't fixed. That really wasn't a reason to complain as on this holiday we wanted to be off phones/ internet in any case. All in all, it is good value for money - but do book early as places tend to get filled up and we saw quite a few walk-ins who were refused as they only have a few rooms.

We stayed at cabin 52 the first two nights in Glacier and really enjoyed it. Very convenient to the lake, river and stores. Nice and quite at night. Being on east coast time it was great to wake up before everyone and watch the sunrise over Lake McDonald. A truly special and wonderful place and so glad it's protected. Bring your kids here instead of Disney!!! As noted before, it is basic but you really shouldn't spend too much time in your room with the scenery that's around.

Room Tip: Cabin 52 was very near the river which was great for our 7 yo son.

The motel has great location, minutes from McDonald lake, and very close to West Glacier park entrance. Rooms are not very big and the furniture is basic, but everything was kept clean. It is a motel, so don't expect too much, but you will have cosy and clean room and will be surrounded by gorgeous scenery. Personnel is very friendly. Also on a plus side, there are several places where you can buy food, including some decent restaurants (Apgar, West Glacier and area around Lake McDonald Loge), which is much better compared to some other parts of the Park. However, there is no wifi, no cell phone reception (AT&T), and no TV, but that is the case in the whole Park. We really enjoyed our stay at Apgar, especially sunrises and sunsets at beautiful Lake McDonald. Would stay there again.

The room was cozy and clean and charming, the motel is minutes from the lake and from the restaurant. My only complaint is that there was no wifi in the rooms, it's only accessible from the office, which seems like a needless omission. It's inconvenient because there's no phone service in the park, though I did get a few bars every now and then.

We were four women needing a place to stay while on a hiking trip in Glacier and Apgar Village Lodge filled the bill so to speak. We had stayed here last year in another cabin. This time we had cabin no. 20 which was very spacious with a kitchen and sitting area, as well as a loft area with two very comfortable queen size beds. The main floor also had a large bedroom which contained three double beds, on of which was a bit lumpy and perhaps needed to be changed. We also had two bathrooms - one with a shower which as previous contributors mentioned is a bit small, but manageable....and a half bath as well. It's a great setting amidst tall trees and steps away from the shores of Lake Macdonald. The staff are fairly pleasant as well. I would stay here again. This large unit would be very suitable for families.

No frills cabin, close to Lake McDonald. The bathroom is small and the shower even smaller. However, the hot water always lasted for two people to shower. The front desk people where friendly and accommodating. No cell phone coverage and you can get wifi on the front deck at the office. Not a lot of room for clothing, so you really can't unpack your suitcase. Great location inside the park.
