This is a great place to stay both in location and overall hotel quality. the staff is extremely laid back, polite and helpful and there is a restaurant on the property that has GREAT food and a good selection of beers. upon arrival we were given drink certificates so we were already sold!
the town is small but scenic and the helicopter glacier tours and some nice coffee shops are within walking distance! this is a great place to spend a day or 2! you'll be happy I promise you!
