Reviewed 24 June 2014

Stayed at Dancing Bears Inn June 19 & 20th, 2014. Great hotel in East Glacier with really nice owners. Room has fridge, microwave, and flat screen TV. Very comfortable and nicely decorated room. Would definitely stay again.

this is a very nice motel ran by a really cool couple whom are very helpful in helping you with deciding what to go and do in the area depending on the time of year it is,they keep the continental breakfast well stocked and open all day. I would not hesitate to book here again.

This is a really nice well managed Inn. Our room had a jetted tub and was extremely clean. Free Wi-Fi, continental food all day and a refrigerator in our room. One block off of the main highway but yet very quiet. Would certainly stay here again!

Friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms, tucked away from the main road. A generous continental breakfast is available all day. In my research and experience, this seems to be the best balance of value and quality in East Glacier, which is an area dominated either by expensive or shoddy options.

My family and I travel to Glacier 3 times a year and over the years have stayed at virtually all of the hotels on the west and east side. This one is nothing special, the owners were friendly but with the price tag I can see why. The prices are very high for this area. Across town, the hotels charge half of the price as 3 Bears literally. This one sits right across from the railroad tracks.

We finally found the key to staying on either side of Glacier National Park, the secret "Private Cabins". A person can stay in a private cabin in many places around the park and not have to listen to your neighbors or deal with the usual distractionsThey are peaceful, quiet, private and and typically are alot less with a surreal surrounding!

Room Tip: Find a cheaper one and get the same ammenities for 1/2 the price

Me and my mother absolutely love this place! Stayed here twice already in between trips to and from Canada to Montana and were beyond pleased both times. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and flexible to your every need (including hunger); very affordable; and great midway stop for the trip location!
The rooms are great and cozy and clean and you literally feel right at home. Two Medicine Grill down the lane has great hot food and staff plus there is also and gas station/mini grocery store down the street if you got the munchies!
We plan on staying here every time we need a lil break in between our US/Canada travels!

Room Tip: Obviously not tons for kids to do other than watch TV, not a fair category to rate, and clearly no s...

I'd planned to spend one night here during an unusually cold snap in December (minus 30 below), but my car wouldn't start when I tried to leave. They let me stay the whole day in my room without charging me, and the manager spent hours on the phone with me trying to find mechanics, replacement vehicles, etc. Could not have been more helpful. The room itself was very comfortable, spotlessly clean, though somewhat expensive (about $120 out of season). Other than that, this would have been an easy five stars.
