Unauthorized charge on my credit card

I pre-booked at a set rate. When I arrived I asked for a room in a different location than the one offered; the hotel was virtually empty and this was granted. The room I used was smaller than the one originally booked and did not appear any better so it did not occur to me, nor was I told, that the room represented an upgrade at a substantially higher rate. (I wouldn't have taken it if I knew it was) When an extra charge appeared on my credit card I contacted the hotel and they refused to reverse the charge even though the charge had not been authorized. There's a basic principle that when credit card information is provided to a vendor, it is not to be used as a blank cheque and only authorized amounts are to be charged, regardless of what the hotel thinks the amount should be. Otherwise, why would anyone give over their credit card info if they didn't know what the hotel would charge until they got home and saw the bill? So I'll have the credit-card company reverse the charge myself. Aside from this, on the plus side; my stay was pleasant, the hotel was well located for access to Glacier Park, and all the stuffed animals in the lounge gave it a certain charm. On the negative side; the room was tiny, it is on a busy highway and there was no breakfast available on-site (it was their off-season)

We stayed in Northfork cabin for 2 nights in September. Everything was just as the web site promised. Very clean, great location, very friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay. It was very quiet, we were not too close to the highway. There was a gas fireplace, but we never figured out how to turn it on (but did not need it and did not ask).

The entire town is very unique. We stayed in the main building of the hotel, but there are also cabins. The decor very much reflects the location. The rooms are a mixture of modern decor and log cabin. We really enjoyed our time here. The Montana Fur Trading Company is across the street. This is also a must see. Huckleberries are very big in this part of the country. There is a small store in town (go to the white building by the traffic light) that sells huckleberry everything. Try the huckleberry lip balm. Wish we had more time to spend in Hungry Horse.

The South fork cabin was an excellent "home base" for our trip to glacier, the cabin was clean, well equipt, and surprisingly quiet. Loved the large shower with two shower heads. We cooked out using the grill provided, and had dinner one night at the lodge. Would totally recommend.

6 years ago we stayed here while visiting Glacier so when we returned had to stay again. They are about 9 miles from West Glacier entrance in Hungry Horse but well worth it. We arrived around 5:30. Kyle, both bar tender and front desk host checked us in and served us a couple of local beers. They have a restaurant on site, “Off the beaten path” which was entirety convenient after a long day of driving. Plus the first night there you receive 10% off of your bill. A nice incentive. We sat in the second room on a comfy leather couch and watched TV while enjoying our beer. We had crab cakes which were amazing as well as pesto penne chicken pasta which was okay. Tara our server did a great job being both friendly and attentive. We were placed in the same cabin we stayed in 6 years. A cute front porch with grill, a full kitchen with dishwasher and a nice size bathroom. The bed was in the same room, but didn’t mind, as we were only there at the end of the day after touring. Only one glitch. That was when we were ready to take a shower, hair popped out of the drain. Took a picture and showed Jasmine who promised the tub area would be cleaned. Hopefully that was an aberration. Other than that, highly recommend.
