My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in one of the rustic motel rooms. We loved being only about 7 miles from the West Entrance to Glacier Park. After hiking most of the day it was very convenient that the restaurant on site was open later until about 10:00 p.m. The restaurant had great food and we loved the huckleberry sundae.

Great Stay

We stayed several nights in the motel units. Despite the name "historic" the rooms were modern enough. It had a small A/C unit, fridge and microwave. The beds were separated from each other by the bathroom. Each had a TV oriented towards the bed, we were able to access basic channels, though more modern options might be available. The rooms were clean, comfortable and warm. Fairly small bathroom - shower only - was in the unit. Not right next to the West Entrance of Glacier, but not too far either - we drove there several times from the lodge and it was convenient enough. We ate breakfast at the small lodge restaurant twice. Both times the food and service were great, and there was no wait time. If you go a bit west into the town of Hungry Horse there's a sweet shop, The Huckleberry Patch, that sells a bunch of huckleberry goods that would make great gifts (they also have ice cream and pie but we'd already eaten so I can't attest to that). The town also has a full grocery - maybe not quite as full as I'm used to being from the Chicago suburbs - but after being on the less populated east side of the park I found this to have a lot of selection including good fresh fruit. We also had a little bit of time to spend and discovered a lovely area around Hungry Horse Dam.

The cabin was small and cozy but had all necessary amenities. The attached bar/restaurant was good. There is a short trail from the property into the national forest. Only drawback was that the bathroom was tiny. But we had a good stay and would stay there again. It was very close to the national park.

Rustic and cozy!

What a wonderful place to stay. We stayed inside the hotel and our room was spacious and rustic. I really enjoy the cabin like feel with the real log cabin walls and wood through out the whole lodge. The place has some cozy fireplaces to sit up next to for the cold winter nights. The food was really good and reasonable price. This was a great place to stay and not to far from Glacier National Park.

Be sure you can honor your reservation

Because of the seasonal nature of vacationing in this area it was recommended that we book our room as far in advance as possible. For us that was 4 months. Well a lot can happen in 4 months and sure enough we had to cancel. They do not refund your deposit, and that is made clear at booking. However spending $246 for and getting nothing in return is hard to take. We hope to be able to reschedule our visit for next year, but it is doubtful that we would take the chance on booking here again. There are too many options available to risk losing another deposit.
