After staying at all the condos and other places near the town, this simple place is a hidden jewel. Yes, dated and lovely, it is within walking distance (2 blocks) of everything in Whitefish at night. Don't expect anything special as it is old but just suitable for us on the road skier, motorbikers, mountainbikers and hikers. Simple conti breaki... More

I am a local resident whose Grandmother was staying at the Downtowner Inn because their house was on fire and they were displaced. I left a care package of warm clothes and essentials at the office. I was told the room number, and called to leave a message that a package had arrived. The office was actually closed, so I... More

The location for the Downtowner is unbeatable. This is our favorite place to stay when we are in Whitfish on a bike trip. We can park right outside the door and move our stuff in easily. After a long hot dusty ride, it's nice to just park the bike and walk around to restaurants and sights. Staff is always great.... More

Deadbolt broken on inside, rugs and mats dirty, stinky filthy rag in kitchen sink, a door to 'no where' that said "Emergency Exit"....never did figure out where it... More

This hotel is a good location if you want to be able to walk downtown to eat and drink. However, there are much nicer places not far, so you can walk a little further to have a nicer place to stay. It was way over priced at $138. I had not stay there before, and I don't think that I... More

So I called over 24 hours in advance to cancel since the girls who were going could not afford it. At the time of cancel I was told I would not be charged if... More

It's right near the center of cute & historic Whitefish, MT. Everything's walking distance. The staff is super friendly and professional. I watched one clerk keep her cool as she was cruelly berated by a drunk guest who had a mixup with his room. Though when we asked for a rollaway bed we were charged for one but never got... More
