“It is what it is.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Needed a place to stay before traveling through GNP. This is a no frills hotel. It's one room and a bathroom with a shower so small I could barely move in it. But hey......it was clean, cheap and isn't "roughing it" what heading out west is all about?

I'd avoid rooms near the road and right across from the restaurant if you can, it was noisy. We could hear the old gal in the room next to us snoring all night.

I wouldn't want to spend a week there but it was fine for one night. It's in a great area right near the entrance to the park. The restaurant was pretty good and reasonably priced.

Stayed August 2013

It was definitely a no frills motel. Room was clean and comfortable, but no shampoos, no hair dryer, no kleenex, etc. It did have a flat screen TV, but no phone in the room and very poor reception on our cell phone. No real privacy as picture window looked out onto parking lot. It was close to the west entrance of Glacier NP, so location wasn't bad. The one plus was there was a very good diner right there, good breakfast, lunch, dinner and pizza.

Very basic hotel room with no amenities, but it was clean and comfortable. Bathroom was definitely small, and there was limited privacy from the adjacent rooms. I was fortunate to be there on a cool night, so the lack of A/C was not a problem. This is not place you hang out, but a place to crash for the night while enjoying the park. I rated it highly for the convenience and value relative to the location.

...and it definitely was. The room had no closet only a nail in the wall with a few hangers; no TV, fridge, microwave. The bath was so small that I had to keep contact lens stuff and makeup in the bedroom (?) since there was no shelf space -- also no towel racks. Stay here only if there are no other places to plop for the night. It was clean and staff was nice but I'd forgo it on another visit to Glacier Park.

Room Tip: am sure all the rooms are the same so it wouldn't matter in which you stayed. A great restauran...

West Glacier Motel is a decent enough place to stay. Its rustic but across a parking lot is a pleasant restaurant with good food and low prices, a gift shop, little grocery store that has some basics, and a bar next to that. My son and I stayed there for two nights. They have a 3 day cancellation policy - meaining, they need 3 days ahead or you lose your money. I think that's fair enough. People could walk all over them. We had to change our reservation several times, and they only changed me $10.00 dollars for what may have been inconvenience to them. Some rooms are better than others. The first night the room was not all that nice, had a bad smell in there, but the heater worked just fine. Has a nice view of trees rightt outside the door. No TV, refrigerator or microwave, but cell phones can be plugged in. Coming back at the end of the week, the room was a little nicer, but this is basically a rustic place just outside the park and you can't expect the Ritz. I would recommened it for young families, or anyone looking for a bargain, as its clean, very quiet and the staff are helpful and nice. Even lent me a broom to sweep out my car when it got to be too messy to deal with. Just up the road is a scenic bridge and river, and the park entrance, which makes it a short trip in.

Room Tip: Not sure. Its a seasonal motel. I noticed a lot of people there, all looking nice and decent, maybe...

Our stay at the West Glacier Motel and Cabins was very comfortable and satisfying. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room consisted of two queen sized beds and was very clean. No television or phones in the room, but cell phones did work. Would definitely stay here again.

My cousin from Ireland and I recently spent two nights at the West Glacier Motel after several long days exploring the park. Our cabin had two queen size beds and was clean and quiet. The manager and his staff were very accommodating in answering our questions and meeting our needs. I would definitely recommend a stay here, as we came to see the park in all its grandeur and not a fancy room. Thank you for making our stay so memorable.,
