We were really underwhelmed by this hotel. Out of the three hotels we stayed during this vacation, this was the most expensive and the least luxurious. Much more expensive than the Hilton and much less comfortable than the Best Western. The included breakfast was kind of gross.

We recently stayed at the Red Lion in Kalispell. They got us a room which was super and the girl on the front desk when we checked in was very friendly and helpful.

Our room, location & comfort were great. Ceiling in bathroom Was stained from a leak and back of bathroom door had drip stains from ??? Otherwise very clean & neat. The included breakfast was better than most. Omelettes were a great way to start the day.

Comfy beds,great shuttle service and good location for Kalispell and airport. But toilet was filthy. Would have loved the breakfast but it started after we left for flight. Breakfast to go option would be nice, especially since so many visitors have very early morning flights.

The Red Lion Hotel in Kalispell was excellent. The rooms were clean and spotless. The hotel staff was friendly and kind. I was taking a tour to Glacier National Park and the hotel was directly on the route. The elevator system was a little tricky to navigate but I managed to figure it out. It would have been nice to...

This Red Lion is attached to a small mall & within reasonable walking distance to down town for shopping & dining options. The buffet breakfast was one of the nicer hotel breakfasts with an omelet station included. The rooms are very typical with two beds, desk, shower & TV. Comfortable accommodations for the weary traveler.

The hotel is lovely and in an excellent location. The room was comfortable and spacious. The bed was very nice, comfortable and great pillows. The breakfast is also very good with lots of choices and a chef to make omeletes.

I usually find perfectly good accomodations in the $100-$130 range so was dissapointed to find on my Trip Advisor search that a comparable room in Kalispell was going to be about $100 higher. I chose the Red Lion because they had a vacancy and I got the price down to $177.00 instead of $239.00 by signing up for Red Lion... More

The room was a bit dated, carpet and pull out couch, our 2 daughters slept on the pull out and had to use pillows for comfort as the mattress was terrible. Breakfast was great and so was the fitness area. The pool was a few degrees too cold and the out door hot tub wasn't working.
