“Thank you, Josh and the Glacier Guides!!!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

We loved our stay at the Glacier Guides Lodge! This was our second trip to Glacier National Park but our first time staying in the West Glacier area. The Glacier Guides Lodge was absolutely fabulous! What a great find! The location is excellent, and near the entrance of the park. Our room #12 on the upper level was immaculate and so very comfortable, and included a private patio area which is shared with room #11. The breakfast is very thoughtful in that it includes gluten free options! Each morning we were treated to fresh fruit, cereals and grains, a variety of breads, juice, yoghurt and coffees and teas. If requested a day in advance, Josh and the Glacier Guides can prepare a lunch for your hike! We did that and what a feast we enjoyed! Josh is the innkeeper, and so helpful with information and any assistance you might need. Josh, along with Max, a happy Vizsla, made our stay extremely special! Thank you, Josh, Max and the Glacier Guides!

Room Tip: Rooms 11 and 12 have a lovely patio area off of their room. Room #12 is on the corner so it also in...

The location couldn't be better. The cabin was pleasant, very clean and quiet. With a full kitchen and gas grill, it is perfect for eating on the porch with a wonderful view of the mountains. There were no complaints from the three adults who spent the night here. Since I have visited Glacier Park many times, I will always make a point to stay here when in West Glacier.

This is a small lodge so book early! Josh knows the area like the back of his hand! Good breakfast included. You can walk to the Belton Chalet for a nice dinner. Very close to the West Entrance to Glacier NP. It started out my trip on a high note!

How can we add more to the "excellent",well deserved reviews,of Glacier Lodge-all was great experience!Josh is not your typical "inn keeper",guide,cook,coffee maker,[--] artist,story teller etc.Great guy in a great place!Having visited West Glacier for over 50 years,I can attest to the train traffic,but the Lodge is above and beyond all that in a super comfortable room!
We did not meet other staff,but would be remiss if I did not mention that not only were our reservations handled in a personal manner,the staff at the main Glacier business,handled a dinner for over 100 people,including outdoor cooking of steak,fish etc!Dont think many places can do this!
Great place!

I stayed in the Glacier Guides Lodge for 2 + 1 days at the beginning and end of a GNP trip. My pre-arrival experience was excellent in terms of prompt response to enquiries by Judith and Megan. The lodge is well-located and near the west entrance of GNP and the train station, but tucked away so that trains cannot be heard at night. They pick up and drop off from the train station if you are arriving by train (I took the train between West and East Glacier). Breakfast is included. The rooms are spacious and have a mini-refrigerator. The innkeeper Josh is very friendly and helpful. Worth mentioning that cell signal is non-existence inside the rooms but if you step out, then you can make a call.

Overall, this is an excellent place to stay in West Glacier.

On our trip, we stayed in multiple lodgings. The Glacier Guides Lodge was the newest, quietest, and had the largest rooms. The lodge manager was also excellent. I wasn't traveling with children, but if I were, this would have been the best place for them. This was the only lodge from our stay that I am giving an excellent rating.

Great room - two Queen beds, A/C, refrigerator, WiFi, Flat Screen TV. Very very quiet.

Josh, the manager, is the most valuable part of this establishment. Very easy to talk to, knows the park, what trails would fit your ability, and recommendations of where to hike. Plus he recommends places to eat. He offered (and recommends) bear spray for the week that I carried with me. He provided a great breakfast each morning (nothing cooked). I would stay here again.

I enjoyed hiking each area of the park - Logan Pass, Many Glacier, Two Medicine, etc. My wife and I chose hikes from 5-14 miles long with elevation gains of 2300 or less. We are mid fifties and 60. I think if I was going back, I would stay in the Many area for half the trip - to hike the 4-5 trails there and then move to West Glacier area to hike Logan Pass trails. The trip around is 1 1/2 to 2 hours no matter which way you go (mainly because road construction on Going to the Sun Road). That is three to four hours of driving (and not easy driving) each day for one trial.

The only thing is we came in August and it was hot in the afternoon and the Many Glacier Hotel doesn't have A/C.
