Glacier National Park Questions

Hello,

I tried searching but could not get exact answers so Im hoping some of you will be able to help.

I'm planning a vacation to Glacier National Park in July of this year. I have the following questions:

1. Where is a good place to stay? (I tried Many Glaciers Lodge as I have seen recommended but it is completely booked in July). Would a place like this be too far from the park:

http://maps.google.com/maps/place?cid=5683885686480894042&q=Hotels&hl=en&cd=5&cad=src:ppiwlink&ei=PCimTZeAH4HmzATf1s2HAw&dtab=0

2. It looks like there may be two visitor centers (the west and east side?). Does it make sense to find a place to stay on the west side since its closer to the airport?

3. Looking for moderate hikes (maybe 6-8 miles at most one way). Any recommendations? any 'you cannot miss this if you go to the Glacier NP'?

4. Any other advice?

Thanks!
