A pretty basic but very clean and well-maintained room. It is a little way from the main street of Fix Glacier but no problem with a car.

It’s basic

The restaurant has been closed down. The rooms are clean and uninspiring. The day guy hates his job, the night girl is lovely.

Great place to stay in Fox

Friendly accommodating people. Great place to stay. Clean, quiet, close to everything. The lookout point 5 mins further down the road is well worth it.

Pleasing stay

Was a small glitch with my booking, but was quickly rectified. The staff went to great detail to explain the local area. Nicely located away from the main traffic. Recommend for sure
