was given discount due to grampa in hospital/ Would have given 5 stars but pool area was really cold. But outside temps were below zero before wind chill! Breakfast was unbelievable with cook for personal omelets and extensive selection.

Sorry to hear your Granpa was in the hospital. I hope he is doing better. Yes, its a bit of a challenge to keep the pool area warm with such fridged temperatures. Thank you for commenting on our wonderful breakfast, it's always a hit. I hope to see you visit again soon. More

Stayed at the Red Lion for a night on our way back from Vegas. We were pleasantly surprised! The location was ideal, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the airport shuttle service was very prompt (which is not always our experience with park and fly options). The room was large for the price and very clean and the included... More

I stayed in two hotels in Kalispell. Grand Hotel and Red Lion (one block apart). Red Lion: Friendly staff, quiet room, clean bed, full hot and cold breakfast including omelet bar (only downfall closes at 9am). If you have time use the sauna and pool in a covered atrium. There is also an outdoor courtyard in the center of the... More

I was pleasantly surprised! I stayed at this location when the hotel was called another name, Cavanahs, (I think) , and I was not impressed then (12 years ago). It was outdated and not very clean. Well, I guess Red-lion bought it and turned it into an amazing hotel! Especially for the price. The lobby was very beautiful, as were... More

Room and hotel in general were clean and nice. The full breakfast the next morning, which was included in the price of the room, was awesome. You just don't see that much anymore. Would recommend this hotel.

I am a repeat customer here and stay here on business trips. Despite the hotel being co-located with a Mall, a Convention Center, and a Casino, every time I have stayed here (weeknights), I enjoyed very quiet evenings and nights. The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable with medium firm matresses, and the highspeed wireless is reliable. The rooms are... More

Best breakfast of any hotel I've ever stayed at. Comfy beds and pillows. The hotel was so accommodating for our sports team. Would stay again for sure. They even let us have a birthday party in the common area by the lobby with over40 people

The location is useful being downtown and all. The staff is clumsy at best. While sitting in the lobby, I heard the lady at the front desk gossip about guests and drop a couple f bombs. The "new" fitness room is horribly dirty. The machines look to have never been wiped down, dust with sweat spots abound. The floor of... More

We were at this hotel for two nights and found everything to be pleasant and easy. Our grandchildren were playing in a hockey tournament and they really enjoyed the indoor pool and outdoor hot tub. The omelet breakfast was wonderful, everyone had exactly what they wanted to eat before their first game each day. We appreciated the fridge and microwave.... More

I recently stayed here with girlfriend's family for a ski weekend. We brought our ~50 pound dog along and didn't have any issues. The hotel not only allows dogs, but everyone there seemed happy to have them. Our room was clean and the bathroom was large, which was nice. I found that no matter what we did, our room was... More
