One of the few places near the glacier and it's location was perfect for glacier tours. The rooms were clean but dated, blackout shades present but did not filter completely so bring sleep masks. Staff was extremely nice - great hiking path just behind. Gas station across the street has reasonably priced good food. Breakfast included at the hotel and was wonderful.
