Multi generation family cooks and serves. Very service oriented. Great place to eat whether you are staying at the motel or traveling through.

Family owned with Dad and kids waiting tables, Mother does the cooking. Really nice to find a family ran business rather than corporate America establishment. . Ate here for dinner and breakfast.

One would expect that the menu would be loaded with vegetarian and vegan options, but none were available. This restaurant is a Healthy Haven in name alone. The menu was loaded with the usual artery-clogging meat dishes, but nothing for the truly health-conscious.

The motel and restaurant appeared to be clean, but the proprietors were neurotic about the potential of pet hair, and excluded our Pom from staying.

Could you imagine the litigation that would follow, if a grungy human with long hair was turned away? The fact that many hotel sinks are clogged with hair has nothing to do with whether or not they accept pets. Pets do not comb their hair and preen themselves over a sink.

Before we remodeled our rooms at the Inn on the same property, we allowed dogs in our rooms. During that time, it took more time to clean the room so it would be acceptable to guests that did not have dogs with them. After all our rooms were fully remodeled and set up with expensive quilts with bed skirts, we no longer allowed pets. We found our rooms on a whole were in better shape and the carpet and bedding were cleaner than when we allowed dogs in them. It is hard for some people that have their dog with them to understand or appreciate the concern for the work and time put into our rooms to make them the best they can be for all guests. It seems obvious that when this person was told that we can not allow dogs in our rooms, they were upset and criticized any thing and everything they could.

We were fortunate to find Glacier Haven Inn for our 2-night stay while visiting Glacier National Park. Not only was the room comfortable, nicely decorated and roomy, but the personable service of the McMilllan family was top-notch. The food at the cafe was delicious. We ate breakfast and dinner at the cafe and also got a sack lunch from the cafe to take on the red bus tour that was very good, too. It felt like we were visiting family friends.
