Missed out on the Icefield parkway tour 12 years ago due to time restraints and so this time we booked one nights accommodation through expedia. The drive from Golden to here is a magical one and the constant stopping for pics meant we arrived early afternoon. Check in was slow, we then made our way to room #308 which is...

This hotel is surrounded by stunning scenery. The glacier is gorgeous and it's great being close to those attractions. The actual hotel was a bit of a strange experience. It's located in the same building as the tour company for the glacier and skywalk. So we walked in and it took quite awhile to find the lobby for the hotel....

Restaurant is poor. Food is expensive and poor quality. We asked for a chicken fried rice And the chicken in it was smelling bad. I asked the waiter about it and their response was quite indifferent. They even got me to pay the tip preincluded in the bill.

It was a great room with a nice view..we had lots of fun here. We could not control the heat in the room and it was very warm. Left the window open all night. Not much selection for t.v. And wifi was slow. However I do realize we were in a remote location.

Booking this hotel on Expedia made this a steal. Considering your in the heart of the Rockies the slightly outdated decor in the room is a non-iissue. The staff were great and our room was perfection!

Nice place, would not want to be there. Peak season, would be way too busy for my liking but everyone is very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean, food ok. Restaurant is over priced for the quality of the food.

Lobby staff and room excellent. Receptionist very helpful and pleasant. Food in both food outlets dreadful and grossly overpriced. Worst eating experience in Canada! Quality of breakfast better but again grossly overpriced. Over $60 CD for two people!

It's really a great accommodation choice for who is going to visit the Columbia Icefield. Perfect location. Clean room. Good service. It's really convenient as the ticket center is just located at the same building with Glacier view inn.

The location is unrivaled, right in the middle of the Icefield Parkway, fantastic views in all directions. Room was large, nice and clean and way better than I thought it would be after having read some of the other reviews. The check-in desk is hard to find, but service was great. The food in the restaurant was really expensive, but...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Glacier View Inn is a model of environmentally sensitive design, built to incorporate the pristine environment that it surrounds. There are 32 guest rooms - most have at least two queen beds and a loft. All are well appointed, with satellite TV, and direct dial phones. Many rooms offer spectacular views of surrounding mountains and glaciers but you should make sure to request a room with a view early as these are the first to go. Most rooms are well suited for families needing more space than a conventional hotel room, as well as traditional sized rooms for couples or individuals. Open April through October. ... more   less
