“Great service and superb huckleberry pie”
Reviewed 11 July 2011

Due to the exceptionally late opening of Going to the Sun Road we needed to travel from Many Glacier to Bigfork along Route 2. We stopped at Glacier Haven for the night at 10 pm. The owners were very gracious and made sure we had eaten dinner, even though their cafe was officially closed. We did opt to have huckleberry pies which was delicious- full of berries, not too sweet, with a tender, flaky crust.

Randy gave us a good discount on our two rooms, but it was still pricey when we just wanted a place to sleep before getting back on the road (but probably the going rate for the location).

The service and attention to detail were outstanding.

The owner has a very bad attitude, rooms full of mosquitoes, rooms very small.

Randy M, Owner at Glacier Haven Inn, responded to this review, 10 April 2013
These folks arrived late with no apology, and while my wife was checking them in, they made a comment that they may not want to stay for the time they made the reservation for. I advised them of our reservation/cancellation policy that they were made aware of at the time of the reservation. The man's response was that I was "pissing him off" while I was finally eating my dinner after 9:00 PM due to waiting for them to check in. When they went to their room to settle in, they left the door open while they were going in and out of the room, which resulted in mosquitos in the room. They stayed for the time of their reservation and when they checked out they said "thank you". They obviously arrived unhappy and took it out on us.

Our family just returned from our vacation in Montana and we were lucky enough to stumble upon this hotel/cafe after our day trip to Glacier National Park. We called late (10:30pm) to see if there were any vacancies, as luck would have it they did have a room to accommodate our family. I spoke to Randy, the owner and he was nice enough to stay open until we arrived! Our room was immaculate, and the breakfast the next morning was excellent! In fact I thought it was the best breakfast we had in Montana! Very family oriented business, they truly care about everyone who stops in for a stay or just a cup of coffee. We will certainly stop in again on our next trip to Glacier!
