“Nice Place, but a few things coud have been better...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013 via mobile

We stayed here on our way back from St. Mary Lodge, which we loved. We had a late start from there, due to illness, so we arrived late, around 8:00 PM. We did call to let them know we would be arriving late. We called 2 nr's, no one picked up the phone.
It was pitched black, and the sign was not lit up when we arrived.( If they even had a light. ) We passed it by, and it was very hard to find the Hotel in the dark.
Not a good first impression.
The beds were very good, and it was cozy, but the girl that cleaned our room forgot the sink and the floor.
There was no sink in the bathroom, only out in the hallway on top of the fridge. It didn't feel sanitary.

I also woke up around 5 every morning, by walking and noise coming from downstairs.

Glacier Guides Lodge is a charming quaint accommodation nestled in the woods just a hop skip and jump away from the park entrance. The decor is cabin like and well thought out, our room had a small outside sitting area that looked out into the woods. The gal who checked us in was delightful and well acquainted with area. The included breakfast was nice and fresh. Sorry we weren't staying longer the place begged you to relax and set a spell.

The Lodge is easily the best hotel facility in or near Glacier Park. (That's not saying all that much considering the general run of greatly overpriced and under-achieving hotels around the Park).

Let me say, however, that my overall experience here was the best I've had in any hotel anywhere. The physical facility is terrific and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff is first-rate.

If you are going to Glacier, look no further.

No doubt, best in the area. Nearly new, spacious accommodation in a quiet forest setting. Friendly, helpful reception and an excellent breakfast with fresh fruit and baked goods. Highly recommended. Only negative was our room heater was being repaired but we managed with the bathroom heater.

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Glacier Guides Lodge. We are sorry to hear that your heater was having an "off day".

Glacier Guides Lodge is the best of both worlds - just across the road from the West Entrance of Glacier National Park, but far from the mayhem of the concessionaire properties. The rooms are new and large enough for comfort, well-appointed with plenty of storage and closet/hook space. The second floor was perfect for our week long stay and very quiet. Josh the innkeeper provided a great continental breakfast spread with the added touch of a daily yummy home-baked item. Josh was also more than helpful in providing hike and car route information, allowing us to make the most of our stay. Also need to mention Josh's free bear spray! This was just one of the ways the Lodge tries to reduce environmental junk from accumulating in the the area. We've already recommended the Lodge to some Montana natives who hadn't heard about it.

Room Tip: The second floor was very quiet and has a large porch, but there are first floor rooms with outdoor...

My husband I stayed here for 3 nights on a recent trip to explore Glacier National Park. Seems fairly new with nice spacious rooms. Very clean, peaceful and fairly quiet (we were on the first floor and could hear walking in the room above us due to the wood floors; you probably hear less noise on the second floor). Exceptional continental breakfast in the morning with fresh breads, healthy dry cereals, granola, yogurt, fresh fruit, juice and fresh coffee and tea. Each morning there is something made fresh such as cinnamon rolls, muffins, mini quiches, etc. We look forward to staying here again in the future!
