On arriving at fox glacier inn it appeared to be a really lovely place. I got the keys to my room and was pleasantly surprised to find a shower and toilet in the room. I met my two roommates shortly after who weren't exactly talkative so I got ready and went to the bar for some food and a well deserved drink after doing the glacier walk. The girl that took my order was lovely and talkative. Sitting in the restaurant alone was rather uncomfortable, there was people coming in to the bar who appeared to work there and I was getting funny looks, needless to say I finished my dinner and left. I went back to the room and climbed up onto my top bunk bed.....what a HORRIBLE squeaky bed it was! Even the slightest turn and it made the most awful noise. I didn't get a lot of sleep that night as it was noisy from top and bottom bunk, and the mattress was very thin and was digging in my back. The girl I was sharing the room with decided she would get up at 5am and have a shower,of course she had to put the light and the fan on and the shower was pretty loud too so we all got woke up early. Then she was flustering around in carrier bags (which should be banned in shared rooms!!)
Overall, not a good night at all. I will not be returning to fox glacier inn but the guy who was in charge was lovely and nothing personal against the motel, it is just the beds..
