We drove into Kalispell and drove by the Hilltop Inn. We stopped at the Hampton Inn and they were going to charge us $225 for one night, we said adios. On the way back to the Hilltop, we stopped at the Blue & White motel and check out the room. It was actually scary and the place was run down.... More

Stayed here in Aug with 2 other couples. The owner introduced herself on our arrival, so refreshing. It was raining and we were on bikes and she offered to drive us to restaurant we didn't accept but where do you see that. We had 3 rooms with living rooms and kitchenettes, wow. They were very clean and nicely set up... More

We arrived late and did not anticipate the office would have closed at 9:00 pm. Somehow we missed the email on how to get the keys after hours. We tried to get another room at a decent price but no success. After spending the night sleeping in the car we talked to Denise the next day. She was awesome and... More

This is a older motel. It is spotless clean with good beds. The managers respect this property as their own. So extremely helpful and informative. The house keeping ladies are so friendly and hard working. All linens are soft and fluffy. They are always asking do you need anything. We highly recommend this motel and the rates are great.

Thank you for your kind words. We do respect this property and run it as our own, it is a work in progress and thankful we have an owner who understands the need to improve this historical motor inn with the necessary updates but still keeping the historical value. For us it is a labor of love and our guest... More

After stopping in at a few other spots in town trying to find accommodations for the evening, we finally made it to Hilltop Inn. Glad we held out! The place was great, very clean and modern furnishings, for a reasonable price and pet friendly! Definitely don't pass this one by.

In our attempted to avoid the chain hotel, we found this little gem and so glad we did! The first night, Chandler the owners son, gave us two options. What was so great about this place is they offered to let you see the rooms before making your choice. What a great service. We choose the economy/pet friendly room which... More

Thanks for choosing us the first time then coming back for the second time :) It is always a great feeling to hear praises on how well we take care of this little Motor Inn but it's a parents dream to hear praises on their children.

What a funky little place. And I say that in a very positive manner. This is a older facility that reminds me of the old Route 66 motor inns. The rooms are very nice and clean. We stayed two times over a 2 week period. Each time in a different room. Each room has it's own personality. And the towels!... More

We had the opportunity of riding our motorcycle down from Lethbridge Heritage long weekend and stay once again at the Kalispell Hilltop Inn. This is our absolute favorite place to stay when we are in Kalispell. We have tried several other places but the cleanliness of the rooms, the friendliness of the owners and the overall condition of the place... More

I want to call this place a hidden gem but it has been here from the 30's I think! We get to Kalispell most every year but usually not at the peak of summer. We were really struggling on line to find an affordable place. Most places were booked. Then I read a bad review of another place in town... More

The inn was our first stop on a return visit to Glacier. Denise was welcoming and gave us a great dinner recommendation. We stayed in one of the not renovated rooms, but it was perfectly comfortable and exactly what we needed. We will definitely come back next time we're in Kalispell.
