Our stay here was spectacular. We stayed on the lower level in one of the kitchenette rooms and just thoroughly enjoyed cooking simple meals so that we could spend our time relaxing on the patio watching the view. The rooms are very clean and with good quality linens and towels. The history is part of the charm of these rooms... More

I had doubts about making a reservation here as the reviews were up and down, but I am so glad that I went with my gut feeling and chose to make my reservation. This place evokes so many wonderful feelings. It has a totally 50's feel about it and what isn't to like about the '50s. We had a kitchen... More

The Village Inn at Apgar was by far the best motor inn we stayed at during 10 day stay in Glacier National Park. We probably have about 100 pictures of the view-- it is that incredible and was always changing! Some of the group I traveled with enjoyed keeping the shades open all night and literally watching the sun rise... More

As other reviewers have noted, this property is old-fashioned and the interior of the rooms is plain. However, you stay at the Apgar Inn for the view, which is worth every cent. The 2-4 chairs positioned outside each room, facing the lake, are a perfect way to appreciate Glacier & Lake McDonald. Wifi was terrible, but the prices seemed fair... More

My husband, our 2 adult children, and I stayed in a 3 bed, 2-room suite on the 2nd floor. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. It was rainy and cold the 2 days we were there so we didn't have to worry about it being warm in the room. In our room we could only eat cold... More

Simply put the Village Inn at Apgar is one of the best I have ever stayed at. One thing you have to understand with some of these lower star reviews is that you are staying in a National Park. This hotel is not going to be super modern and perfect amenity wise. But what you are paying for is the... More

Make sure you bring your camera to the Village Inn at Apgar and if you are serious photographer be prepared to bring your A-Game. The TripAdvisor photos taken by fellow travelers of Lake McDonald and Glacier National Park’s mountains to the north are extremely impressive. The comfortable, quiet and clean Inn is a throwback to lodgings and other décor in... More

This hotel was the one we liked the least in Glacier NP. The view and location right on Lake McDonald are great. The rooms, however, have no cooling mechanism. There are two small windows on one side, so there is no air flow. We found it to be very uncomfortable for sleeping.

When you get to the Village Inn you ask yourself what you're in for. It is a very old looking structure. You walk in and wonder what the 2015 renovation was about, and then you look out the window and WOW. It is literally a priceless view - unobstructed, lake front, with a sweeping panorama of some of the impressive... More

We booked over a year in advance to stay here and we got the last kitchenette room (room #65). The view from the room is breathtaking. Nice and clean, outdated, but some of it is intentional, and the rest adds to the charm. This is not a 5 star hotel, it is quaint and has its quirks. It can be... More
