What a lucky find this was. Came into town on a friday night and found most places full. Called Red Lion from a list given to us and they had one room left! The minute we walked into the place we felt welcomed. From the front desk to the chef making made- to- order omelets everyone was friendly and professional.... More

With over 2 million visitors to Glacier National Park each summer often times travelers don’t realize just how hectic it can be to find rooms in the Flathead Valley, so we are glad that we could help you out and not have to send you to the next closest area, being an hour away! As far as being pleased with... More

We stopped at the Kalispell Red Lion on the way to Glacier Park. It was clean and fresh, and the bed was great. We had a good night's sleep. We know that some of the Red Lion properties are becoming a little old and tired. Not this one. It was up to date and well maintained. Combined with the staff's... More

Kalispell hotels were full so it was suggested that we try the Red Lion because they had rooms available. We were cheerfully greeted by the hotel staff, our room was very nice and the bed quite comfortable, and we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast the next morning, which included an on-site chef who made us an omlet with our choice of...

We spent three nights while visiting friends and Glacier. The breakfast provided was really nice, with many options. We didn't have to eat the same thing every morning. The room was clean, but small. The check in and out was fluid. We were on the first floor corner next to the laundry room. Don't let them give you that room!... More

We stayed the last weekend before road construction closed part of the park road. It was a quick drive to the park entrance from Kalispell considering how slow the drive is once inside the park. This hotel is by far the best place to stay in the entire area and the most pet friendly. With a direct connection to the... More

It’s always great to see that people and their four legged family members can come to the Flathead Valley and share the magnificence that we call home. Whether you’re hiking the mountains of Glacier National Park or taking a nice leisurely stroll down town, there is always beauty to be found where ever you look. As far as your great... More

Okay hotel with good service at reservation desk. Location is central which provides good access to restaurants and amenities in the area. Its a bit noisy being on some main routes and the decor is dated 1970ish. Breakfast was provided and was good for a family vacation. The pool area was in good shape and clean. For the money there...

Thank you for your review and we value your opinion with an overall satisfied experience. Please know that during the summer the Flathead Valley is a high traffic destination hot spot with Glacier National Park being so close and over 2 million visitors yearly.

Stayed for a quick night on a business trip Sept of 2012. Very clean. Quick check in. The breakfast goes far beyond a regular continental breakfast with cook to order omelets, potatoes, bacon, sausage ect. I will very much consider staying here again.

A wise person once said “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” and we took that to heart here, starting all of our guests’ morning off right with the Roaring Start Breakfast Buffet and its unique made-to-order omelet station.
