Glacier vacation
Front desk help was great. Informative and friendly. 3 night stay. I should've dug deeper into this hotel. We stayed on the 3rd floor and there is NO elevator. I have bad knees and ankles/feet so the kids did most of the heavy lifting. Be aware of that. Loved the vibe. Ski lodge with lots of old wood decor and fireplace in the lobby area. Continental breakfast was ok. I was a fan of the meats and cheeses. Nothing over the top though. Parking is in the lot across the street (free in the summer/ need a permit in the winter) it's a hike though, so drop your bags before you drive over there. Being a mountain lodge, we were disappointed that there was no view. Obscured by trees and condos. There are pull offs on the road to snap a picture though. Our room did have a window ac unit which worked, but was struggling. Everything on site is expensive.... from the lodging to the drinks. Have to splurge on vacation i suppose. It's about a 10 minute drive from Whitefish.

Meh…
Not amazing for the price,cute,quaint,but rather stay at a commercial motel with a large parking lot,more and closer amenities,not up a hill from the parking lot,and a frickin’ elevator!Also since we paid for a room for 2 couples,they could have made up the fold out couch so we didn’t have to.

Nice place, but needs updating.
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The lodge itself needs updating. The room felt tired.

4/10 Fair

I was dissappointed
Very overpriced for what you get. The staff was nice, the fire in the lounge at night was nice and the look when you pull up to the hotel and the lobby are appealing. However, the hallways to the rooms are dingy and depressing and our room smelled horribly from cigarette smoke. The hallways are dingy, place badly needs to be updated.

Comin Back For Sure
Really nice, comfortable, and quiet place. Almost felt more live a B&B than a hotel. Staff was great too.
