Based on reviews here, I was not expecting much. I booked the hotel as part of a package which included a glacier tour and breakfast. I had a good experience at check- in...the gal was friendly and helpful. The room was huge and included a loft with 2 twin bed in addition to the queen downstairs. It was clean and well maintained. The view of the glacier and mountains was great! The negatives were that there was no Internet and there was only the VERY high priced dining room. This place is very isolated and there are no other dining options. Since breakfast was included in our package, we did eat that meal in the dining room. My French toast was just ok...if we'd had to pay the bill for breakfast, it would have been the most expensive breakfast we ever had!
If you like peace and quiet and a nice room and aren't concerned about the expensive meal options, then this is a good choice. The location is good if you want to spend time enjoying the Icefield Parkway in a leisurely way.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Glacier View Inn is a model of environmentally sensitive design, built to incorporate the pristine environment that it surrounds. There are 32 guest rooms - most have at least two queen beds and a loft. All are well appointed, with satellite TV, and direct dial phones. Many rooms offer spectacular views of surrounding mountains and glaciers but you should make sure to request a room with a view early as these are the first to go. Most rooms are well suited for families needing more space than a conventional hotel room, as well as traditional sized rooms for couples or individuals. Open April through October. ... more less
