We just returned home from a fabulous trip to Glacier National Park. We stayed 7 nights at the Highland Resort. Now, I do agree with some reviews in the sense that this is NOT A RESORT. However, our family made the trip to enjoy the outdoors which is exactly what we did. We spent all day, everyday, away from the hotel and out enjoying the beautiful scenery. We wanted a place where we could crash at night and as long as the hotel was clean and comfortable then we knew that we would be happy. Our first night was spent in the main building.........not a great experience because of the trains.....it was LOUD. The rest of our time there we had a room in the building located furthest from the road.......and no problem.....we slept great!! Our room was comfortable and clean. The staff cleaned the room daily and always provided more than enough towels for our family. The bathroom seemed to be rather new and again, always clean. This hotel is no frills......and not a "resort", but again.....it served our needs perfectly. Our two teenagers, aged 19 and 15 were also fine with this hotel. As I said earlier......we were out and away from the hotel all day. We only crashed here at night and the glacier highland was perfect for that. In addition.....we had a FABULOUS breakfast every morning just a few steps from our door at the glacier highland restaurant. EVERYTHING here was delicious and the entire staff was so nice and helpful when we had questions. We definitely would stay here again and think that the ranking for this hotel gives an entirely different scenario than what we experienced. We are picky when it comes to cleanliness and comfort and I was nervous when I saw the low ranking. Our experience was WAY better than expected and we would have no problem recommending this place to our family and friends.
