This hotel looked like it might be a bad one when we first got in there. But it was actually ok. It was clean, and quiet, and close to everything we needed. The staff were very friendly too!
If I had to complain it would be to say that the bed has a "plastic" cover underneath the bedding that was annoyingly loud when you moved around on it. Thankfully we had two beds in the room (another plus was that one bed was in it's own room) and the second one was quieter. Oh, and I would not jump for joy on water pressure in the shower either.... but it was manageable.
We went out for breakfast, so I can't comment on the food, but when we went down there, there were a lot of people seemingly enjoying it.
Also it has a lot of family friendly amenities, especially for kids. And you can sleep in tents (well actually they are Tee Pees) if you want which looks fun.
Overall I would say it was a good place, I would probably try others in the area on my next trip but that is through no fault of this place.

We started out reasonably early on day 2, and headed into Glacier National Park to do our first real hike of the trip. A nearly 5 mile round trip jaunt through the woods. The trail was rated as moderate, so should be no problem for a couple of seasoned hikers like us right? RIGHT?
Problem #1 was apparent right away …
... Lake a few days before). So we continued east beyond the pass, towards St Mary. Shortly after the pass however, we hit LOTS of road construction where the road was reduced to a single lane gravel road in several locations. The most disappointing aspect of this was that one of the most popular overlooks was closed. I tried scoping out a way to reach the spot, but there wasn’t a way to get there without walking through ...
... snagging one of the last campsites at 2:30 on Thursday afternoon, much to our surprise! Once again, amazing weather greeted us on Friday morning, and we embarked on our longest day hike yet to Grinnell Glacier. 12 miles round trip, but it flew by as we were awed once again by the amazing views all the way up.
We were also thrilled to celebrate Susie and Patty's wedding day up in the mountains! Though sad ...
... However, for this blog, we did cull them down to just 60 or so. We tried to remember the names of all the mountains and glaciers that we saw, but we knew we couldn't, so please just enjoy the beauty of the pictures and forgive us for not remembering all the names. It truly is one of the most beautiful places we have seen and we would hope that everyone could come here and see it for themselves some day. It is well worth the trip.
We went south of the park today so we wouldn't have to wait in all the traffic in the park. We saw Many Glacier, and a black bear! It entered a lake and swam across to the other side. We had a picnic lunch on a pull out in the road and picked huckleberries for breakfast. It was a long day, but worth the drive. We are staying in our friends camper. It's really nice, but their dually truck is way too big to take on the mountain roads, so we have been using our rental ...
