Stayed in the Inn on August 25 and in July of 2012. There are only 32 rooms at the Inn, but the location adjacent to the Ice Fields makes it a worthwhile location. They recently updated the lobby and gift shop, but have not touched the rooms. Rooms are comfortable, but the bed on the main level needs to be replaced. The restaurant has a captive audience as it is a distance to any other place to eat. Food is decent, but the prices are extremely high. With four adults we paid $102 for breakfast with just ordering eggs, coffee and an order of toast to go with the omelets. Tip is included with your bill. Only other complaint about the Inn is the distance from the lobby to the parking lot. Be prepared to carry your luggage from the lot across a bridge and into the lobby. Would be nice if you could pull up adjacent to the lobby to make unloading easier especially in the rain.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Glacier View Inn is a model of environmentally sensitive design, built to incorporate the pristine environment that it surrounds. There are 32 guest rooms - most have at least two queen beds and a loft. All are well appointed, with satellite TV, and direct dial phones. Many rooms offer spectacular views of surrounding mountains and glaciers but you should make sure to request a room with a view early as these are the first to go. Most rooms are well suited for families needing more space than a conventional hotel room, as well as traditional sized rooms for couples or individuals. Open April through October. ... more less
