The people at the Belton Chalet are super kind! They made everything about my stay smooth and easy, and were so kind and helpful. It is very convenient to the entrance of Glacier National park, and a beautiful historic building! The room was small but sweet and very charming... The only thing Id say is that the train at 6:23am... More

If you could take this hotel and move it just inside Glacier National Park I would stay here again. As it is, despite what those hard of hearing reviewers say, the train is loud. The traffic is loud. All night. They provide ear plugs. The room is spartan so if you want to do some writing or work without the... More

My husband and I made reservations almost at the last minute so we grabbed a small room on the second floor, corner. Though small, it was extremely clean and included a ceiling fan, portable fan, plenty of electrical outlets, sink, shower. Nothing elaborate. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The lobby is cozy with a fireplace, comfortable seating and... More

Charming historical hotel. Room was quite small but clean. Very convenient to West Glacier park entrance. We are light sleepers but we weren't bothered by train noise at all, which seems to be an issue in some reviews. Probably our only issues were a very loud bathroom fan and the loss of convenient parking if return to hotel after 7... More

The location is beautiful and so is the hotel. Rooms are charming and our room had a patio that was nice to sit out on and chat with the neighbors. Downstairs had a game room and tables to plan out your trip to the park. Entry sitting room was quaint and the staff was helpful with questions about day trips.... More

We spent two weeks in Glacier and spent our first 4 days at the Belton. We really enjoyed our stay. It is beautiful and very close to the entrance of the park. It is true that it is historical and they tried to keep as close to the original experience as possible and I found that really helped us feel... More

I found this hotel very nice for location and ambiance, with lovely gardens. No A/C but a ceiling fan really kept temp in the room OK in 85+ F weather. Had a great meal at the restaurant, although lack of breakfast a negative. Overall, I would stay here again.

First the problems: The pictures don't show the busy road right outside or the also busy railway line next to the road. huge freight trains rumble through regularly so ear plugs are a good idea at night. We were out of season in mid- May and missed the small print that stated that the main hotel block was closed so... More

We ate there on 6/14/16 after a long day of cold hiking in the rain, in the park. We all loved the old building, and the historic nature of the location, and we really wanted to love the food. My kids shared some beef tips and a bacon wrapped filet mignon, which they liked well enough. I had some local... More

Staff very nice and helpful. The only reason this is a 4 instead of 5 has to do with weather and not the inn - I know we were warned it was historic - and it is beautifully restored. And we were warned about the trains (all night and loud), but with 90 degree days, closing the windows was not... More

We are a 1910 National Historic Landmark hotel built by James J. and Louis Hill of the Great Northern Railway.

The Belton Chalet was the first chalet built for Glacier Park and the park’s first winter headquarters. Belton Chalet, family owned, once again welcomes guest from across the world. Thank you for being our guest and a part of our history. ... more   less
