We read lots of mixed reviews about this hotel. I imagine in the peak of summer it may be as others have described -busy, noisy and no options but to pay ridiculous prices at the restaurant. However, in the off season (ie. the last week it is open) it was a delight. The room was large enough for five of us. It didn't have a fridge, but luckily it was cold enough for us to leave the milk out in the car!! We borrowed bowls and spoons from the kitchen and had cereal with us to have breakfast in our room. We ate in the Restaurant one night, and we were offered such a cheap rate, we stayed a second night but drove up to Jasper and had dinner there. The view of the Glacier from the room is stunning (albeit the window a bit small). We loved the isolation and quiet after the tour buses had gone. We bundled up warmly and did a walk up to the bottom part of the glacier which was wild, windy, icy and good fun. And the bus trip was good -blizzardly cold but fun and novel for the kids. My husband did say however he heard a mouse like creature in the room the first night (he didn't tell the rest of us till after we'd left!!).
- 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
