TripAdvisor’s #1 West Glacier Hotel: Glacier Guides Lodge

Teal was so helpful in every way! She provided me with bear spray, and set me up with a rafting trip and bicycle during my stay. The lodge itself was lovely and the WiFi was great, which makes a huge difference when you’re trying to communicate with family/friends outside the wilderness. Would definitely recommend Glacier Guides to anyone traveling through this area in the future! Thanks for a wonderful trip. -Kristin A.

Teal was our hostess at the lodge and was super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Not only was she there to answer questions but was genuinely interested in making sure we had a great experence while in Glacier. Our room was clean and comfortable at the lodge. And the breakfasts were great! Thank you, Teal!! -Christine T.

We will definitely be back. Thank you for such attention to detail and keeping the experience of your guests so serene and relaxing while being respectful to the environment. -Joyce F.

This 12 room lodge again and again combines loveliness and tranquility on the one hand and modern practicalities on the other. Situated immediately outside of Glacier National Park at the end/beginning of the famous Going-to-the-Sun road, Glacier Guides Lodge was a wonderfully restful place to come back to after a day’s hiking in the park. Our room was lovely–quite literally, all you see outside is trees, except for looking down to a field of daisies or walking out the door to your own private table with petunia and geranium pots. In addition to this atmosphere of tranquility, again and again we found details large and small thoughtfully put in place for guests. Nice (also green) toiletries, excellent breakfast (cereals, breads, huckleberry jam, hard boiled eggs and yoghurt, juice, very good coffee), very good free wi-fi (unfortunately no cell reception but handphone available), guidebooks for hiking and fishing. Teal, the manager, was extremely efficient and also kind. She is filled with information, thoughtfully arranged for us to have breakfast 1/2 hour early one day when we needed to arrive early in the park, packed a $15 lunch to take on the trail which was big enough for two of us. Excellent beds. … My only regret is that this get away is not closer to home–we would use it frequently. If we are ever back in the area this is where we will stay. -Luca
