My 19 y/o son and I spent 4 nights in St Mary in the green tiny house. Super location to stay as it is on the east end of the park where you can best view wildlife. We would hike during the day and go back into the park at dusk to look for bear, elk at Two Dog Flats. St Mary is so close to the park entrance, that travel in and out was a breeze.
The tiny house would warm up during the day so we kept the blinds closed. Sleeping at night with open windows was so awesome with a cool breeze (40s) coming thru the cracked windows. A small fridge and microwave with a sink was included. The bathroom, though a 20 step walk on a paved side walk outside the house, was spacious. No issues with having enough hot water. Multiple fun dining options were close to St Mary’s especially TWO SISTERS.

Way too expensive for what it provides.
We stayed here as we needed to be over the east side of the park early in the morning and there were very few places to stay around the area. It really feels like the guys here take comeye advantage of the monopoly they have. The prices chared were totally excessive for what was a very basic room without even a breakfast included. The worst value we experienced in anywhere we stayed over our 3 weeks in America

Perfect location for park transportation
Truly enjoyed our stay and access to the park transportation. Has a great gift shop. Located near a helpful Visitor's Center and a quality ice cream parlor. Stayed in the west motel that was decorated appropriately for a park.

Beautiful room and lodge.
This is a beautiful place. The rooms are huge and have a nice mountain decor. My only complaint was that something outside the window and possibly the ac unit banged loudly and squeaked all night long so I couldn’t sleep( it was a windy night). Ear plugs didn’t even help to muffle it. And isn’t sleep the main reason you book a room for the night in East Glacier? It was the last open day of the season so they kept running out of food choices at the restaurant for dinner and breakfast. But that is understandable. Check in wait was longer than acceptable and we thought we were being rushed out of our room the next day. Otherwise a nice place that is very convenient for East glacier and right at the entrance of Going to the Sun rd.

Great Balcony..So So Room
We stayed 3 nights at the Great Bear Lodge at the end of the tourist season in late September. Access to the GNP was easy and convenient from the lodge. The balcony had table and 2 chairs and a gorgeous view of the mountain and stream.
The room was in need of a deep cleaning especially the bath tub area. The lighting in the room was incredibly poor. I guess the darkness of the room hides some of the cleaning issues.
The on site restaurant was adequate and convenient.
