Loved staying at this motel since it was so close to the Glacier National Park entrance. The motel is one story so no stairs to walk up. Our room had a working a/c, fridge, microwave, walled toiletries in the bathroom, and free continental breakfast (coffee, juice [pineapple, tomato, apple, and OJ], milk, cereal, oatmeal, and individually wrapped pastries. You could grab these the night before if leaving early for the park the next morning. If you needed a wine or bottle opener they had one available at the front office. The manager and the staff were very friendly and the rooms were very clean. Ice machine and laundry machines were up and running.

We stayed at the Mini Goldens for 7 nights. The room was newly updated, nice hardwood floors with a rug between the 2 queen beds. Had a flat screen TV with Dish satellite and a microwave, fridge and coffee maker. The room was spotlessly clean. Beds were comfortable, mattresses seemed new also.

Very convenient to Glacier, I timed it and we went from the hotel parking lot, through the entrance to Glacier and we were at the Apgar Visitor Center in 15 min.

The grocery store across the street was convenient. we even got some of their fried chicken the one night when we did not feel like going out to dinner. Lots of places to eat within a few miles but some did close early, one stopped serving dinner at 7 and only had ice cream. I think it was the Huckleberry Patch.

There is no maid service unless you stay at least 3 nights and have to put a door hanger on the door that you want your room made up. Not a big deal, we needed towels once and just went to the office and met I believe her name was Lucinda at the laundry and she got us more towels. We did use the maid service once and they room was made up and cleaned nice with more new towels.

Also, they did update the wifi so it works pretty good now, we had no problems with it during the whole 7 days, worked pretty well. My granddaughter was able to steam Tiktok, YouTube and download music with it

Most of the people we saw staying here were older so even though the walls are thin and we could hear our neighbors from time to time it was never an issue. Most people were respectful and quiet.

Overall, a nice stay, if we ever get to Glacier again this will be our first choice!

Clean, spacious, and comfortable room. Spacious parking lot and a laundry dry room. Simple carry-out breakfast consisting of cereal, oatmeal, pastries, milk, hot cocoa, and juice. Small fridge and microwave are very useful. Helpful staff cleaned up the water leaked from the defrosted fridge.

We did not have a motel reserved on our trip west to Idaho, because we decided to go at the last minute. We saw many no vacancy signs and so we were a little concerned about where we would stay. We stopped at the Mini Golden Inns Motel in Hungry Horse, Montana, and we were happy to get the last standard room available. When we got into the room, we were hit with a strong cigarette odor, so our room was not smoke-free. The smell gave me a headache, and was just unpleasant. We hadn't asked if the room was smoke-free, so it isn't totally the fault of the motel, but I hope that the staff there will tell the customers if a room is not smoke-free.

The room, bathroom, and shower stalls were clean. There is a fridge and microwave oven. Breakfast of pre-packaged cereals, Danish, oats, milk, juice, hot chocolate, tea, and coffee are available at the office. The is a common laundry room. Wifi is slow at night. Fair price for the proximity to Glacier National Park. Better restaurants are at Columbia Falls, 10 minutes away. Gas is cheaper there too.

This motel is conveniently located near West Glacier. We stayed for four nights. Our room was nicely decorated and it was quiet and clean. Our only complaint was that the mattress was hard as a rock and the pillows were too. We also used the washer and dryer with laundry soap bought in the office.

A mom and pop style motel with nice renovations! Our floor was all laminate so no carpet!! Themed rooms which is fun! We stayed 6 nights, so we had a chance to watch the cleaning girls and how hard they worked at cleaning the rooms, even the windows!! Lucinda was very helpful when we requested a late check-in and with any questions of the area. Carolyn's Cafe across the street was the best for breakfast. And a small grocery store very close by. We enjoyed the location and not being in a big town.

This motel is a good budget option in the West Glacier area. The rooms have clearly been updated over the years and are very clean. The bones of the motel are quite old but they take great care of things. There’s a small complimentary breakfast at 8 but that may be a bit late for the early birds looking to get a jump on park crowds. The motel is about 15 minutes from the park entrance and 30+ minutes to Kalispell. For those looking to save money on a Glacier vacation, you can’t go wrong here.

Pros: We were put in an updated room that was super cute and 100% better than the photos online. Great location to explore Glacier National Park. Room was comfortable.

Breakfast was so-so...grab and go mostly sugary options.

Cons: The woman who appeared to be running the place didn't wear a mask and didn't enforce the rule. Super disappointing and shows her ignorance. I have had better wifi in a 3rd world country. It was truly terrible. Don't advertise it if it doesn't work.

Response from Rick Van Sickle, Owner at Mini Golden Inns Motel
Responded Jun 29, 2022
Hello Karen, I am sorry that you felt I was ignorant. It was not a "rule" in Montana that I wear one or force others to do so. I guess enough time has passed that it is now apparent that those masks really didn't make much of a difference after all and in all likely hood according to science often did harm. Karen, I am really glad that you survived staying at my motel. I sincerely wish you get everything you deserve in life and if you are ever in the area again...just keep on driving
