Awesome place, spectacular views and nice hotel! 2 negatives- but would completely stay again; not notified that the on-site restaurant and bar would not be open the week of our stay until arrival, and terrible internet service. Other than that the place was great!!!

Resort is very nice. Staff was excellent. No elevator, no pool, great hot tub. 1 washer and dryer for entire resort and dryer doesnt work very good. Food in the restaurant looked a little to fancy for me. I didnt even try it. Maybe missed out. Alot of stuff to do close by but West Glacier entrance is about 35 or miles away.

The property is located on a hill away from the town which is nice but the property needs to be more customer friendly. The front desk staff depending on the time of the day was not willing to provide information to us about the local area. The wifi service was very flaky and very unreliable especially when there is no cell phone signal available. I would not recommend this property to folks that are expecting good friendly customer service. The room did not have supplies in the bathroom, no replenishment of coffee, towels given we stayed for 4 days.

This is the most adorable, cozy, and homy lodge we've ever stayed in. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful. The room was super clean, and fit our family of 4 perfectly. I really did not want to leave, it felt like home.

Everyone at the Lodge went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was exceptional. Jack checked us in and was so helpful and friendly! He was eager to help in anyway possible from carrying up our luggage to suggesting possible hikes. Rose Marie greeted us every morning when she packed our to go boxes for breakfast. There were so many choices but she was always so pleasant and patient. My husband and I would definitely recommend the Lodge to anyone traveling to Glacier National Park. You will not be disappointed!
