“West Glacier Motel and Cabins: A Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Spent four nights at the West Glacier Motel and Cabins in August, 2013. My wife and I booked a cabin on the bluff overlooking the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. The cabins themselves don't have a view of the river, but there is a 'common' area with fire pit, picnic tables, bar-b-ques, and outdoor chairs that sits right on the bluff looking down at the river. Our cabin was good sized with a kitchen area (with basic kitchen necessities including a sink and refrigerator w/ freezer and basic pots/pans/dishes/utensils), dining table, small closet, two queen beds and a small but functional bathroom. There was a picnic table outside our front door as there were at all the cabins. It was clean and well kept. There was a base-board electric heater that worked well one night when it got pretty chilly. I don't know if it had air conditioning, but also don't know if it would ever be needed. We enjoyed it immensely. If you want room service and/or a soda machine down the hall....stay somewhere else. If you want the quiet, serenity and beauty of a cabin in the woods with running water, shower and kitchen...stay here. Great for couples, small groups or families.

Room Tip: Don't know anything about the motel rooms, but the cabins are great.

My two teen-age grandchildren and I stayed in the two-bedroom cabin for three nights to attend a nearby wedding. We found the accommodations very comfortable, clean and roomy. The kids were actually "disconnected" with the exception of their phones, but they enjoyed the experience. We could walk to West Glacier Village (maybe .5 miles), and enjoyed the peace and quiet. The kitchen is fully equipped and roomy. It served as an excellent base for hiking in Glacier Park and was really very nice! Close to everything.

The attendant, Sue, was incredible. Needing an iron to iron our wedding clothes, she allowed us to borrow her personal iron for the weekend, which was really going above and beyond. We really appreciated it.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the West Glacier Cabins, and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Thank your for a great vacation experience!

Room Tip: This cabin had three full-size beds, one in one room and two in another, and no couch in the living...

This is a great motel at a very reasonable price- rooms are comfortable and clean, the lady at the front desk was very friendly, and it's a great location near restaurants, stores, and the park. It's not luxury, but the beds were very comfortable, showers were hot, and it had more amenities than I expected- ice available, kleenex & shampoo in the rooms, fan, etc. (Also cell phone service worked fine.) We stayed "on the bluff" which is a short drive up the hill from the office and it seemed much more quiet and secluded - also very pretty mountain views. I would definitely stay there again if I'm back in the area! Also you get 10% discount at the restaurant next door.

Room Tip: Ask to be "on the bluff" - i.e. the rooms and/or cabins that are 1/4 mile drive up the hil...

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.

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...
