Exceptional 10.0
Great Stay!
A fantastic lodge that has ski in/ski out access while providing friendly hospitality at every turn! The onsite bar is a great place to unwind after a long day on the hill and don't forget to dip into the hot tub to fix the sore muscles.

Stay here, you won’t regret it.
The Kandahar is awesome. Great location, super nice staff and very accommodating. Hoping to come back again for another ski trip in the future.

Good 6.0
Not as great as I wished for.
The hotel staff was wonderful and very helpful. However, this property bills itself as,”ski in/ski out”. Don’t believe it. It’s not. To “ski out” you have to walk down a hill, cross a busy road and across a frozen parking lot to ski down to the chair lift. Not a fun walk in ski boots. To “ski in”, you have to make the correct turn off of a run onto a little unmarked trial. If you miss the turn, which I did once, you have a quarter mile walk back to the hotel, on a heavily trafficked road...in ski boots. Also, there is no elevator in this hotel. So, we (myself and 4 daughters) had to carry our gear up four flights of stairs. There was an employee who was supposed to help us, but he disappeared and we never saw him again. The hotel doesn’t offer any service into the town of Whitefish. To get there, you have to walk about a quarter of a mile up hill to the Village, and catch a bus into town. To get back, you do it in reverse. The hotel itself is dated, but nicely kept. The restaurant is amazing. The overall atmosphere is very cozy and comfortable. If you like going for long walks in ski boots and climbing stairs, you’ll love this hotel.

The Cozy lobby and the free shuttle to the ski lifts.

Very good 8.0
Friendly staff, lovely lobby space, breakfast is very limited (I guess due to COVID), so can’t really call it breakfast.

It was a couple's weekend getaway and we highly recommend this hotel to others. We found the hotel staff to be very helpful and friendly; easy storage for skis/snowbards, hot tub and fireplace all day.

Fair 4.0
Had reserved a deluxe room with loft and kitchen. After checking in found: Stairs to bedroom loft so narrow that you could hardly bring a roller board up the stairs. There was no bathroom upstairs> dangerous trip to the bathroom during the night! No coffee maker, no iron or ironing board. Bathroom small and no counter space, just a small glass shelf. No cell tower reception. Wifi extremely weak to not existant. Therefore impossible to make wifi calls either. Rooms have very thin walls. Could hear conversations next door.

Exceptional 10.0
Cozy, clean and charismatic
We decided to stay an extra night in Whitefish and wanted to reside somewhere we hadn't stayed before -- I had always seen photos of Kandahar and thought it looked awesome, so we booked and we were right! Incredible lodge at the top of Big Mountain, right in the thick of the action. Great amenities with the hot tubs, fitness centers, fireplace lobby, bar and restaurant, plus the close proximity to the hiking, biking and fun on the mountain. Clean, comfortable and incredibly friendly/helpful staff. Thanks Kandahar!
