This inn is 2 1/2 hours from airport in Kallispell. It is on the east side of the park and a hikers paradise. The air smells of cedar. There is no TV and only wifi in the lodge. The perfect get away.

We stayed her for two nights in August, 2016, and we were so impressed with the staff and with the motel overall. It's a cute place with basic rooms, but we were very comfortable and the place is very quiet, unlike Many Glacier and some of the other areas in the park. Unfortunately, during our stay there was a family... More

I stayed in a one bedroom cabin. The cabin was kept clean, and my bed was very comfortable. Room service was routinely adequate. The bathroom and showers were in a different building, but not far away. The bathroom was kept clean also. There was a sink with running water in the cabin along with a coffee pot and good coffee....

We stayed at Swiftcurrent for 5 nights in a recently renovated large one bedroom cabin with bathroom (I-3). It was WONDERFUL! There was plenty of room, a large rectangular dining table with 2 chairs, 3 electric wall heaters (very important on rainy/snowy days!) a bathroom with a toilet and a shower stall, and just outside the bathroom door, a large...

Swiftcurrent Motor Inn is probably more ideal for camping with many campsites around the compound with public showers and laundry facilities. There are about 30 rooms with ensuite bathroom arranged in a motor inn layout. The room is neat and tidy with enough room for 3 - a double bed and a single bed. Bathroom had a shower (looks fairly...

I stayed at the Cabins for 2 nights with a shared bath. It was very convenient, close by to the diner & common bathrooms were near by. Front desk staff at Swiftcurrent were very helpful. No wi-fi in the cabins. You have to go to the Lobby or Restaurant to get the signal. No Cell phone service !

Great to be able to find a place with laundry facilities; Right off of Iceberg Lake trail (includes Ptarmigan Tunnel trail); newly renovated; Great restaurant; Couldn't have asked for a better option in the area, especially since Many Glacier was under construction.

We stayed in one of the cabins with a bathroom/shower on a cold night in Glacier. We chose this because it was the most reasonably priced lodging within the park. The cabin was warm all night and we enjoyed having a private shower after a long day of hiking. The room was very clean. We made the mistake of depending... More

Clean, comfortable room. The people were nice. The location was good. We could walk to the restaurant and the store. There were several hikes, lakes and waterfalls within walking distance. There were several people there in front of the main building with telescopes watching Grizzly bears on the mountainside.

Best for trail heads right at your door, in the quiet woods. Park the car and dont use it until you leave. Simple hotel rooms. Cabins are adorable in wagon train circles. Ice berg lake, and Swiftcurrent trails are at our door, but others access from main parking lot. A good night sleep in a quiet spot. Some internet service... More
