Our family of 4 stayed at Glacier Haven Inn during our vacation to Glacier National Park. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Our room was decorated in a grizzly bear theme! The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The room had satellite TV, a refrigerator, and a coffee maker with coffee for the morning. The bathroom was clean and well stocked with small bars of soap and bottles of shampoo. We had an outstanding dinner at the restaurant, definitely order the huckleberry pie!! Right out the front door is an incredible mountain view, and we stepped out at night and were treated with a view of the milky way!

We had a great experience staying in a two-bed room at Glacier Haven Inn. The room was very comfortable, and the owners are absolutely fantastic, giving great advice on what sites in Glacier National Park to see and when to arrive to find parking. The dinner is fantastic and they have a huckleberry pie to die for. Best I've ever had.

One of the 8 places we state on our tour of National Parks and by far the worse. The rooms are single wide trailers with carports built over them to make it appear like real buildings. Our room had musky smell and there were moisture odor control devices hidden all around the room that did not work. The inn is centrally located between a busy highway and a railroad track. There is no cell service, internet or landlines in the rooms.The woman that checked us in was rude. She said if anyone in our party smoked they need to go out to the highway beside the ditch. She wanted to make sure we unplugged the coffee pot. After seeing the construction of the building I understand why! If it hadn't been a prepaid non refundable reservation I would not have stayed. I slept in my clothes with my valuables close to the door in case of fire.

I stayed at this location because I wanted to stay as near the west entrance to Glacier NP as possible without the expensive lodging in and outside the park. Also, it was too far a drive that day to get close to the park in daylight (we drove in from the east). Montana seems to give a name to "every" place that has a few residents. Pinnacle consists of this motel, the adjoining restaurant and the associated campground. Some place (can't remember where) it was listed in Essex, MT, which is a few miles east. The restaurant only serves dinner (6-8 pm). The usual burgers, fries and a few other options. Rooms have no wifi, but do have direct tv (no phones). Use the REMOTE to turn on the tv, change channels, etc. Turning on the tv results in needing the owner to correct the problem. The room was comfortable and clean. There is a coffeemaker in the room, but no place nearby to eat breakfast. NOTE: there is a train track behind the motel and the trains run throughout the day and evening. I didn't mind this, but will drive others crazy.

We had a dinner here twice during our holiday and I really loved the place! I really enjoyed the food and the owners were truly accommodating and kind. They also gave us advises about the place to go and the roads to take. We tried the New York Steak which was huge and really well cooked, I truly recommend you to try it . But the best plate ever has been the dessert: the home-made huckleberry pie made me felt like I was at home!
