We made a late reservation and were happy to find this hotel near Glacier NP. We stayed at the cabins about a mile down the road from the Izzak Walton Lodge and were pleased with the shuttle back to the lodge for dinner. The restaurant was quite good and we'd defiantly go back there again.

This is a quaint inn. It is not fancy, but very railroad and rustic themed. The staff is very friendly and want to serve. There is no cell phone service, wifi or even tv so plan on a quiet evening reading or enjoying the scenic view.

A positive, different hotel experience with the historic train theme throughout the hotel and grounds outside. Dinner was exceptional at the restaurant in the hotel. The grounds outside the hotel were beautiful.

2nd floor, very small room. Sink not in bathroom. Very hot in room, had our door open mostly because they had fans in hall Windows which made for a little breeze. It was only 50 degrees outside, but like 80 in our room.I can't imagine staying if it was warm outside. They need A/C. Nothing noteworthy about staff.

The staff was beyond helpful and friendly. They offered suggestions for the area, were always smiling and polite, and very accommodating for any needs we had. We stayed 3 nights in the inn. The rooms are lodge like- wood panel, kind of dark, one small window, no air conditioning, and limited wifi. However, the room was very clean and comfortable.... More

Stayed at the Izaak Walton for 3 nights last week and I think the best way to describe this place in that it is very unique place. Even though the rooms in the Inn itself were small there is pleanty of space to roam around. As previous posts have explained the hotel itself has a theme centered around trains and... More

The location is excellent. If you truly like "rustic", you'll enjoy the hotel. There is no phone or TV, and the wireless internet cannot be received in your room. The restaurant is very pricey, and the food is average. We had grocery-quality ribeye steaks at $33 each. Not impressive. The grounds around the hotel are conducive to pleasant relaxing walks....

Stayed in one of their cabooses for one night as part of a road trip. We stayed in the River View Caboose which is just off the highway, a 10 minute stroll from the main hotel. Although sleeping in a caboose is a really cool experience it wasn't the most comfortable. The bed was a bit small for two friends... More

We were planning a trip to Glacier and had not realized it was the 100th anniversary of the NPS. Rooms were tough to come by so I searched nearby areas close to the park. Oh did I luck out! When I came across this place, I had no idea one could actually stay inside a train car! There are several... More

Raining when the train pulled up and let us off directly across from our hotel. The Isaac Walton Inn (two nights) is on the Registry of Historic Places and is old, quaint, charming and dark. The rooms were clean, beds comfy and it was a nice experience to stay here. Lots of stairs, no elevator. A few ground floor rooms.... More
