First, realize that the website glacierparkinc.com does NOT book Glacier National Park properties. This property outside the entrance to the park. We stayed in one of the cabins on the "bluff". The location was beautiful and convenient to the park entrance. We saw deer every morning and evening. The cabin was clean with a good size refrigerator, toaster, and coffee... More

With no internet service on the road to pre check this place we booked and it was non refundable. There was a reason! I understood it was Motel but!!!!!! I checked... More

Loved the concept. Lodging right near the entrance to Glacier National Park in a motel reminiscent of the 1950's, which is probably when this place was built. It is no frills and fairly expensive in high season. When we visited (August 2016), we paid $224 a night. Also, there is no air conditioning and there were a few days when... More

Yes, it is a good example of "old cabin" styling; yes, it is very basic and not fancy at all, but for someone traveling on a budget, it was the best value I found near Glacier National Park. Rooms inside the park were a lot more expensive. West Glacier Motel is right outside the park and convenient to everything. Only... More

West Glacier motel is a very cheap place to stay one night as you start your journey thru the Glacier National park. The rooms were small and so was the shower but it is more than adequate for a one night stay. i would not advice staying more than a night there. You could move to apgar village or lake... More

Stayed in the motel unit. Plastic paneling and dingy/stained bedspread. One of the worst places I've ever stayed. Walls were paper thin. I could hear everything being said in the next room. Tiles were falling off wall in bathroom. Toilet was recently replaced and they did not bother to clean the stains from the old one off the floor. It... More

I absolutely loved this place, I have an affinity for "old" cabins. It was definitely dated, but it was spotless. The room was tiny, but the bed was comfy. There is no TV or wifi, but you're overlooking the Flathead River and there is a nice trail to walk on. There's also a fire pit outside, for public use as... More

Stayed upon the Bluff and have stayed here before. Though the rooms are basic we have enjoyed our stays at this establishment. Rooms are clean and fairly well maintained. Nice place to get away from the rat race down near the entrance. Very quiet This place is worth taking a look at for a stay at the West entrance to... More

Comfortable queen size bed, private bathroom, housekeeping, ice in cooler by the office and they keep it well stocked. No tv, fridge, wifi, or air conditioning. We did have windows with screens that locked and opened them on warm nights. The room did have a wall heater that we used one day. We did have a problem with the shower... More

Loved it. Very basic, no internet, no wifi, no tv. Room was small but clean. As close to Glacier National Park as you can get without being in the park. The room rate was very reasonable and you got 10% off food at their partner restaurant (good food reasonably priced). Also there is a really great local bar next to... More
