We pulled into Whitefish late in the day after a long drive from Alberta. Knowing next to nothing about the town and being too tired to drive around looking at different hotels, we just stopped at the first place we saw. The downtowner is in a great location, literally right downtown adjacent to a cute little coffee shop, an organic... More

This is a good place to stay if you want to be near the historic city area. They have a nice lounge, and are very helpful. What I liked most of all was the close proximity to some very good restaurants.

I've stayed at the Dowtowner twice in the last two months. Once on business and once for a vacation. Both times were very nice. The rooms are older and the remodel job on some of the rooms is pretty cheesy but the place is clean, the hotel is quiet, and the staff were very nice. You can't beat the location.... More

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
