West Glacier Motel
Ranked #5 of 6 Hotels in West Glacier
Reviewed 15 September 2011

Clean, pleasant, good beds, restaurant nearby, good value. OK, so the decor is a little dated, but clean and good beds rank high for us. Main motel is near Rte. 2 so we asked for a quiet room and innkeeper suggested "up on the hill". Well, the hill overlooked the river, had picnic tables, and other residents very friendly. Made for a fun time. Great value for the location..even gae a discount to restaurant next door with good food.

I felt like I was back in time, when I would go on vacation with my parents. Before the flat screens, wifi and air! We actually loved it when we were done. We sat outside in the evenings and talked to our "neighbors". In the area is a little restaurant, which had great food, a cute bar full in the evening of the local raft guides. There is also a gift shop, store and post office. A great base if you can't get into the park.

Neat and clean with newer shower stalls and sinks, etc. but tiny. Walls too thin, as I heard next door people talking while I was trying to sleep. Next door to good, simple restaurant and grocery. READ the guidelines when you check in or you may get charged for not following them.

This place does have a convenient location if you are unable to secure a room at Apgar Village or Lake McDonald Lodge inside Glacier Nat'l. Park, since it's just 2 miles away. It's definitely no-frills--which is quite typical of rooms you will find inside the park. Rooms are small, clean, beds are comfortable. Bathrooms are extremely small and the shower is not great. No towel racks, which makes no sense to me. I wouldn't want to stay here for more than a night or two. The restaurant across the street is excellent with generous portions and a 10% discount if you are staying at this motel. Stayed at one of the cabins here several years ago, and they are much nicer than the motel.

Room Tip: Skip the motel and choose a cabin instead.

We spent four nights at cabin #29 it was exellent, views were great, the mountians the river down below, all while sitting by a cozy firepit. Great restartant just a few hundred feet away, we ended up making most of our meal at the cabin every thing you would need is there, the kids loved the fresh choc. chip cookies when they woke up. I hope to be back next year.

We stayed in the actual hotel part, not the cabins and found it to be a complete DIVE. The walls were paper thin, the window had to be held open with a stick from outside. The bed was ROCK hard and I could actually feel the springs poke into my side. I have stayed in similar quality hotels, but expect to pay a lot less money. This definitely rustic, and not in that cozy nice kind of way, but in the not changing ANYTHING since 1952 kind of way. That bed had to be that old. The only redeeming quality was a fun bar next door that we stayed most of the night at to avoid being in our dark depressing dirty room. We canceled our second night and drove into Whitefish Montana and stayed in a really nice bed and breakfast for only ten dollars more a night.

Probably have heard it all but if you are a light sleeper you better find somewhere else. We both sleep easily so it didn't bother us. Restaurant and bar right next door, bike trails, quiet roads, entrance to the park very close. MacDon Lake Lodge 11 miles and then up Going to the Sun Road. It's Glacier Park!
