When it opened in 1910, the Belton Chalet welcomed travelers from across the U.S., who came to the region by train. The property later deteriorated, but was restored and reopened in 1999.
Now a National Historic Landmark just outside of Glacier National Park, the Belton Chalet offers charming guestrooms in the lodge (ideal for couples), as well as cottages for families. Cottages feature kitchenettes, fireplaces, and private decks facing the national park and Belton Station (just across the street), which services Amtrak.
The hotel also has an onsite restaurant and tap room; complimentary Wi-Fi; and gift shop.

We stayed for 3 nights. The staff at the hotel were exceedingly friendly and helpful - students from abroad who were very welcoming. The rooms were old but updated. Strongly recommend you choose a room on the second floor because if you are on the first floor you hear the creaking of the floor when people are walking around above you. The location is just outside Glacier national park, so perfect for visiting the park. Ample parking. Lower level has a game room. Chairs outside to take in the wonderful view. Coffee all day and freshly baked cookies in the evening.
Lots of maps and books about the area. Highly recommend it for a place to stay while visiting GNP.

We loved our stay at the Belton Chalet.
Since it was during shoulder season, the hotel wasn't crowded and we were able to enjoy our room and reading by the fire place in the lobby with few disturbances.
The hotel is thoughtful in providing ear plugs as the walls are thin in this historic building. We could hear some noise through the walls or coming from the lobby at times (we were the second room in from the lobby) but not enough to meaningfully disturb our stay.
Overall we agreed that the historic charm and the proximity to the park makes this a wonderful property to stay at!
