This is a great place to stay if you're budget-conscious, don't need "frills," and want to be near downtown Polson. The room met our expectations for comfort and cleanliness. The decor was a bit dated, but we stayed here because we needed a place to stay in the area and it met our expectations, and the breakfast was a great... More

Maybe we took more from the pictures from the website, but this hotel wasn't quite what we expected. The night staff was great in that we checked in super late without any problems. Everyone was friendly. Breakfast was typical motel fare (of course, kids love the waffle maker.)

The Flathead Lake Inn met our expectations, nothing more. The room was okay. The breakfast -- basically the same as what every other budget hotel / motel serves -- was fairly mediocre. The location -- just out of town -- is good, and the staff is very friendly,

Flathead Lake Inn was a great place to stay. Three of us stayed here for 5 nights around the 4th of July and it was well worth it. The room was quite small, but that's about the only complaint I have about this inn. The air conditioning and wifi both worked very well. There is a mini fridge and a... More

The motel has a nice lobby and interior but the pet room we got had alot of problems. I know it's a pet room but why does the carpet have to be so stained and gross feeling. I never took my socks off. My other issue is the very old bed, it was so mushy in the middle my wife... More

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER stay at this place. The bar is directly beside the motel and it is Blaringly LOUD until 2 AM. They blast the music. The motel management doesn't give any warning. The management told me all rooms in the motel are equally as loud. It sounds as it the bar is directly outside our room. This is absolutely,... More

I have stayed at the Flathead Lake Inn several times and although never 5 star this past experience was truly awful. We had a room on the back side and the noise from the bar up the hill was so loud even the ac couldn't drown it out. The room smelled of stale smoke and the bed was so lumpy... More

If you're thinking about staying here, all of the other hotels in Polson were probably sold out or WAY over-priced. Don't worry, this place isn't bad. We checked in a bit early, so early that they were still cleaning our room, but they let us drop our bags off. When we got to the room, the cleaner was cleaning a... More

Rooms were clean. Saw cleaning lady with Lysol spray and we even spilled something on 2 surfaces and wiped it up without dirt showing on the towel. There was a microwave with a larger than bar fridge which was helpful. Rooms are small but the wifi is excellent and breakfast consisted of waffles you made yourself, oatmeal, bagels, and fruit....
