This is my first stay in Marina Cay, when me and my family arrived we were impressed with the location until we saw our room. We had a crabby room that has nothing to do with what we reserved over the website. When we complained, we were faced with a staff that looked so inexperienced and clearly used to handle... More

This was my first trip to this resort and every day was fantastic! The room and main office had everything I needed. Access to the lake was a Piece of cake and watching the sunrise and sunset on the lake from my balcony were excellent! I'm looking forward to going back!

My adult daughters and I stayed four nights in one of the east hill condos. It was a big, light space with hardwood floors. There were two bedrooms, and a very pleasant great room. The kitchen was up-to-date and everything worked fine. The bathroom fan in my bathroom sounded like it was going to take off any minute, but the... More

We rented 325 east hill. The loft has two queen beds and a full bathroom. The main floor has two king beds, very comfortable and quiet to sleep in. The kitchen could use a little update, but the decor was in a Montana motif with wildlife mounts on the wall. Fully stocked kitchen. It has a small deck but a... More

Hotel has all of the needs for a vacationer. Resort is located right at the mouth of Flathead Lake. Beautiful place to stay and enjoy Bigfork Montana. Everything is so easy to walk to. Cannot go wrong staying here.

After reading other reviews, I guess we were one of the lucky ones. We stayed 5 nights and would definitely go back. We stayed in #152 in the Waterfront building. The beds were comfortable, they had movies to watch, a book exchange and the location was great. We were sitting right on the water. Every morning we would take our... More

I rated this very good due to the great service provided by all resort employees we interacted with during our stay. The cost to stay leads you to believe you are staying in a plush resort and will have pampered bedding, bath, etc. but I was disappointed. I wouldn't go back unless we were given a discounted rate, which we... More

I stayed at Marina Cay for 5 nights early this month. We rented a 2-bedroom suite in Hill East. The room itself was beautiful and quite comfortable, expect for the bed which appeared to be taken from a dormitory. My major gripe was that only 2 very, very thin hard pillows were provided. The "fully-stocked" kitchen had many pots and... More

I staying two nights. Upon arrival for check-in I was booked into a room with one bed after I had reserved a room with two queen beds. Not such a big deal and could obviously forgive that the desk clerk had made an honest mistake. The room with the one queen bed was beautiful and I almost wished I could... More
