Mini Golden Inns Motel
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Hungry Horse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 October 2008

I reserved a room here only because all the accomodations within Glacier National Park were sold out, and I was pleasantly surprised. As others have said, the rooms were clean, and the staff was very friendly.

The hotel is just a fifteen minute drive from the west entrance to Glacier National Park, so if you stay here, you can still spend as much time as you want at the Park, and be just a few minutes from your hotel room.

There are also several nice restaurants nearby. Like most visitors, I ate at The Huckleberry Patch, which is across the street from the hotel, and even bought a slice of their wonderful Huckleberry Pie to eat on my flight home.

There is another advantage to staying here instead of in Glacier National Park: because Hungry Horse is at a lower elevation than the park, the weather is warmer. I was there over Labor Day weekend, and driving on Going to the Sun road was iffy due to a snowstorm. If I had stayed inside the park, it would have been a challenge to get down from the park to Kalispell for my flight home. Because I stayed here, I had a very easy drive to the airport, mostly on four lane divided highways. Snowstorms can happen at Glacier any time of the year, even in Summer, and I would hate to miss a flight because I couldn't drive over the Continental Divide.

It was the hottest day of the year so far in Montana, the property I'd planned to stay at in West Glacier had no air conditioning, old beds, no TV, no free breakfast, no free internet and a reputation for lots of noise. Having planned this trip for some time I was determined to still do some limited hiking despite the heat, I was willing to experience some pain for a good hike, but hadn't planned on even more pain from my room.

After checking into my original hotel but needing to stay cool I went for a ride down Rt. 2 and a few minutes later was in Hungry Horse, I noticed a motel advertising "squeaky clean rooms", air conditioning, free internet service and a free breakfast and decided to stop in...I was soon checking out of my original hotel.

This is my new favorite place to stay around Glacier Park. The rooms are spacious, modern, remarkably clean with everything you would need and more. The hosts are professional and really take care of the property which they had built some 15 years ago. I can't wait to get back here in the future and will probably book one of the suites.

This was 1 of 5 places we stayed on a trip to Glacier NP, and it was by far the best value. The rooms are immaculate. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The office was open early with the coffee brewed. It was quiet other than the usual parking lot noise outside. I will absolutely stay here again if I return to the area, and I'll recommend it to others.

We stayed at this hotel on our way from Missoula to Glacier National Park. The front desk clerk was friendly and helpful as to things to do in the area for the remainder of our day. (We were going to Glacier the following morning) She suggested the Hungry Horse Dam as well as a number of good local eateries. The Dam was awesome! The hotel itself was simple, yet very clean. It was a good value for our money. The location is great! There are numerous gift shops in the area...all with nice supplies of huckleberry items! The hotel is less than 15 minutes from the western entrance to Glacier National Park.
