Reviewed 16 July 2013

We stayed in Glacier Inn Motel July 3 & 4, 2013. Josh greeted us and we enjoyed visiting with him throughout out stay. Very clean, updated and comfortable rooms. Air conditioner was turned on by staff before our arrival and it was greatly appreciated during the 97 F weather. Nice lawn chairs in front of room to enjoy the great weather. Thanks to all staff for making this a great stop on our motorcycle trip through the USA.

I learned in Hotel Management School a simple rule to make guests happy. Everyone needs three things for an enjoyable overnight stay: clean rooms, great beds and plenty of hot water. Glacier Inn Motel has all that, in fact their beds match any top European five star hotel.

We used to stay in Glacier lodges, but their lack of amenities and old beds gets tiring, literally.
Staying outside the park offers a more open mind to experience more of Montana. Now we enjoy
evenings in Whitefish or a crazy 4th of July night in Hungry Horse watching the town outdo themselves with fireworks! We venture early most days to enjoy the park, but staying " off
Campus " is enjoyable. A family run motel set off the road is more fun than a big non air conditioned lodge run by a concessionaire.

Room Tip: Front side rooms have deck chairs looking at the mountains, and two room suites are great for couple...

We stayed here for a few nights while visiting family and the national parks. The area is nice, the rooms are beautiful, the bed is amazing and huge! I'm not used to having to stretch my leg out completely across the bed and roll to find my husband on the other side, it is wonderfully soft and cushioned. We slept like babes. The room has everything,mini fridge, coffee maker, iron,& board,but no hairdryer. Even the lower end motels that we stayed in had hair dryers, I think that they could have done without some of the decorative vases and bought something of use like a hairdryer! Also, they don't except pets. Which was an inconvenience for us, as we take our puppy everywhere. And he's a good boy, doesn't bark, crate trained, has very good hotel manners. I would be more understanding if they would charge a fee for pets, it would weed out the bad ones. I would much rather have my pet there than some of the people that rented the room next door... my dog has better manners than they did. For those two reasons alone, we left a day early. It is expensive for a night, we're talking $120 and that doesn't come with breakfast or anything. You would get 5 stars, but no breakfast and not dog friendly, sorry..

We stayed at the Glacier Inn Motel for 3 nights while visiting Glacier NP. The Columbia Falls visitor center is across the street as well as a nice park. Behind the motel is a residential area and the Columbia River is within walking distance from the motel. We walked to town to do our laundry and to shop. The motel owners were very friendly and helpful. They offered to let me use their phone to call my husband when I could not get cell phone service. The motel sets back from the highway so it is quiet and we enjoyed sitting outside of our rooms in the evening watching the sun setting. The rooms were clean, beds were comfortable and it is only about 20 minutes to Glacier NP. I would stay here again if I ever get to travel to this beautiful part of the United States.

The rooms were clean, taken care of and had a very comfortable bed. We chose a room with the queen and two twins. This was perfect for our travels. The huge bonus was the playground across the street. Service was quick and they shared good restaurant info. I would certainly stay again. This was great value and we would certainly stay again!

While riding through the Kalispell area we decided to look for someplace different than the two star motels in Kalispell charging $100 plus and we found this little gem. King room was very nice with a great bed, it was clean, quiet and under $100.00 We'll be staying here again. Thanks Carlo
