Here are the positive, location good and it appears clean, that is it. The negative. The room concerns me in that the plugs are the old fashioned two prong, not grounded type. Maybe they did something behind the scenes to ground the wiring in the rooms, I am not an electrition. There does not appear to be a GFI in...

It's tough to find a place close to Glacier National at the height of the season, so were happy to find a reasonably priced motel in a good location. The room we got was tiny (had to squeeze between the wall and the bed to get into the bed), but the bed was comfy. The bathroom was even tinier (only...

This place is billed as West Glacier Resort. A resort is not what it is. Small cramped rooms and bathroom. No coffee maker, no frig, no AC, no microwave. A very basic place to stay and very overpriced, particularly considering that the room did not get made up the first night. When I complained the owner apologized, said he had...

For the money, you get a lot less than you think. The rooms were ok, but dated. It was 90 degrees every day and no a/c. There was a fan, though and one tiny window. You do get a 10% discount at the restaurant nearby , so that was great. The location was also unbeatable.

The proximity to Glacier National Park was great, but this motel was very disappointing and expensive. We paid $125.00 for a tiny cabin type room. No amenities available-even ice-and the room wasn't clean. If the room had been half the rate, it would have been acceptable, but we felt this was highly overpriced, even for summer.

Hi Zillbilly1, Thank you for taking the time to provide some feedback to us in regards to your stay at West Glacier Motel. We are very sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your stay. Ice is available at the restaurant next door which is a couple minutes’ walk, still I can see how this might be inconvenient. We’re...

It had hot running water, a shower, a comfortable double bed with clean sheets, even had a hair dryer in the cramped bathroom. Not much, but its sparseness encourages you to spend more time outdoors, because there's not much room inside. And that's the whole idea of being in Glacier, right?

I booked a room in their back location, not their main location off of the main highway. This was a great decision. The room was a perfect size, not the fanciest, but it was a pleasant sleep. Wonderful view of river and Glacier park from the back rooms. Parking is perfect. You are even able to have a bonfire at...

We spent the day around Glacier Park, and decided to stay the night last minute. West Glacier had a room, and we took it, at $90/night. I really can't compare it to other hotels in the area, but given its location, we were glad we stayed the night to extend our visit to the following day. We wanted a place...

As we had never been to Glacier, we didn't know what to expect. Coming into West Glacier after seeing so many places on the way, we were glad to have a place to stay that was right at the Park. So, we were able to keep driving to a minimum, reserving our time to see the beautiful Glacier National Park....

Wonderful experience for the area. The location was nice and very clean with rustic cabin features. A small refrigerator would have been nice for drinks and fruit but then it is a rustic cabin. I would stay there again in a heart beat.
