The room was clean, the bed comfortable, the en-suite bathroom was modern and clean, the towels plush. Although the room was small, it was more than adequate (we were only there for sleeping at night). No tv, no air conditioning (although there was a small table fan), no phone, no internet service, no ATT cell phone service (although I was able to get a signal at the gas station down the street). This was not a great problem since we were in the room only for sleeping at night. Others were using their cellphones, so I assume that there is Verizon or some other service provider. The biggest drawback was the lack of air-conditioning. Our room had two windows, but even opening them at night did not provide cooler air (even though it was cool outside). The restaurant food was great, the best in the area. DON'T MISS: Logan pass,going to the sun road, Many glacier area, St Mary waterfall, and the many hiking trails. They had a late winter this year and many of the trails were still closed because of the snow. WARNING: if the trail is closed, do not venture beyond. While we were there a 30 year old hiker fell some 600 feet to his death when he ventured onto the closed snow bound Grinnell glacier trail. Lots of flora and fauna (we saw black bear, elk, deer, long horn sheep, mountain goat). BE AWARE: we found out the hard way that they close the going to the sun road at 9 pm. We were in east glacier and had to make a two hour detour around the southern park exterior on small, winding, partially unpaved, dark, two lane roads to get back to west glacier and our hotel. Not at all pleasant. We did some ranger led hikes (OK, but not great) and scenic boat tours (St Mary Lake and the lake at Many glacier) that were ok (although overpriced for what you get) as far as the boat trip itself was concerned, but the commercial guides were less than average and not very personable. Unfortunately, the company (Glacier Park boat Co) is the only game in town
