Glacier Guides Lodge Rated #1 West Glacier Hotel on Trip Advisor

Trip Advisor awarded Glacier Guides Lodge, our West Glacier Hotel, its Certificate of Excellence from 2011 to date!


Relax after a great day of adventure in Glacier National Park at Glacier Guides Lodge.  We are only half a mile from “downtown” West Glacier and Glacier National Park, but our Lodge is tucked into a quiet, forested canyon. It is a great base for rafting, hiking, biking, and fishing with Glacier Guides and Montana Raft. Daily complimentary continental breakfast is largely organic and locally sourced. Our West Glacier hotel is built to many LEED certified specifications. We take pride in leading the way, environmentally speaking.

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.

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

If you need a base in West Glacier to begin or end your journey, I highly recommend Glacier Guides Lodge. It’s not only conveniently located to the train station and restaurants and the national park, but the staff are warm and welcoming. My husband & I disembarked the train at the West Glacier depot after a 24 hour train journey. When we arrived, it was dark and our train was 3 hours late. Disoriented, tired, and unsure of where we were, I saw a figure emerging from the darkness, calling out our names. Who was this stranger? It was Don from Glacier Guide Lodge. He had stayed up and waited for our train to arrive and walked down the hill to greet us at the train station. He wanted to make sure we found our way OK and make sure we had everything we needed. They had already told us they would leave a key for us and we could make ourselves at home. When we reached our room we were greeted by a hand-written personal note from another staff member who wanted to make sure we contacted them if we needed anything. The lodge itself seems an expression of the love the owners/managers / staff have for the place. It was clean, comfortable, and filled with many touches that gave you a sense that people genuinely care about your stay and want you to have the best experience exploring the area. It was like traveling in a different time – we were genuinely welcomed to the area and greeted with kindness.
