We found Dancing Bears Inn to be the perfect place for our stay in East Glacier. The Inn Keeper John was very helpful.The room was clean and comfortable, with eclectic decorations. Breakfast was simple, just what we needed. Dancing Bears Inn fits with this little Montana town. Glad we stayed there.

We stayed for 2 nights in one of there very nice rooms not fancy but clean and very well maintained with a microwave and refrigerator. John the Inn Keeper was very helpful and gave good advice on things to do. A few days later we returned to the Dancing Bears Inn and we were surprised that our room was a... More

We had a great stay, a group of friends coming from a dog show. The house was nice and everyone was great. It was quiet and we enjoyed our stay. The price was excellent and we were given supplies for breakfast at the house so we did not have to go to the motel. Thank you!

Not alot of choice in the village if you don't stay at the huge Glacier Park Lodge. Local run inn with a building housing a strip of rooms (long interior hallway with doors off it) or a few outside cabins. Clean and neat but nothing modern - a bit of a hodge podge of styles inside but a decent price.... More

Dancing Bears was very accommodating, clean, and exactly as expected. We have twin infants and they only had one pack-n-play crib but we made it work as I didn't call ahead to ask about any special accommodations. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We came in on the train and rented a car, so we were able to get... More

But not in a bad way, Whole town is eclectic and the motel certainly fits in.Please note than when you book they charge the whole amount but it is refundable. Rate was very reasonable for a small town close to the Two Medicine entrance of Glacier National Park.Motel has several two room cabins plus a main building. Cabin rooms12,14,15,16 abut... More

We stayed in Cabin 200 for a week while visiting Glacier National Park. They call it a cabin but it was more of a house. We comfortably fit 5 adults and two dogs. We had a full kitchen, fenced yard and even a washer/dryer in the cabin. We could walk every where in town. Two Medicine is about 20 minutes... More

This quaint little inn did the job. Many people say its outdated, my wife and I loved the rugged mountain old school charm. Look around the area, do you really think a 5 star state of the art hotel would fit in here people?! The owner in the office was welcoming and very nice. Walked us to our room and... More

On check-in the owner was welcoming. There are free snacks available from 6am-10pm (porridge packets, apples, fruit juice, coffee) all of which are in the office. Breakfast would need to be collected from here and taken to the room as there is no breakfast room. The Dancing Bears Inn is situated in a run-down area of town and access to... More

The owner John was very helpful with suggestions of things to do - perfect since there isn't much info available on things to do in glacier during off season. The breakfast was also yummy with lots of choices. It is a motel but the sheets and towels were soft and we like quirky places.
