We pulled up after a long day of driving then kayaking, and were blown away by this beautiful location! We were in room 4, which easily has the best view of any of the spaces. From our room with the curtains open, you can see mountains, a glacier, and a couple of waterfalls. Bonus, you can even see one waterfall from the bathroom window as you shower! The toilet had not been cleaned, and while the bed was made and everything appeared clean, I found a tiny rock on the bed when I pull the blanket back to lay down. I slept great, but my husband is a light sleeper and didn't sleep at all - the bed was extremely comfortable, but every small sound from other rooms can be heard. The small refrigerator in our room was very loud as well, and in hindsight we should have just unplugged it. Overall I do recommend staying here, but only for people who do not consider themselves light sleepers, and/or people who are okay with a place being mostly clean but not sparkling.

This is a charming hotel set against a gorgeous backdrop of waterfalls. The room was well appointed, if a bit small. They need to fix the bathroom light switch, as it were dangling from the wall and several outlets were lying on the deck (perhaps they're renovating?). The door lock was tricky to use and nearly had us locked out in the rain. Unfortunately the same rain kept us from really enjoying the surroundings but still Ekra is a nice place that's located close to Glacier Lagoon but away from the crowd.

Nice property close to the glaciers. It’s not at all private. Several other buildings next to property, people constantly walking around windows to the unit. Unit was small. It appears to be a house that was converted to a mini hotel with guest rooms. It was very busy. Nice attractions close to property. Not a lot of food options, or laundry facility. Have to drive over an hour for food/gas, etc.
