Reading some of the recent reviews here, we can’t believe it’s the same place that we stayed at! Seems worlds apart from what we experienced. In general, I think disappointments can be avoided by doing proper research before visiting and staying in any place. For those who mentioned the busy roads and being 2-star, well a simple google search would... More

BEWARE: They do not send written confirmation of bookings or cancellations. Nor will they accommodate changes in a reservation. We ended up cancelling reservation 3 days before arrival and they immediatly charged our credit card before we even hung up the phone. Their non-existant cancellation policy is not communicated and no where to be found. Friends that still stayed at... More

The downtowner is in a perfect location. It is a 10-15 minute drive to Whitefish Mountain and a 2 minute walk to all the bars and restaurants in downtown Whitefish. The rooms are very basic - no fridge (unless you ask for them to bring one to your room with 24 hours notice), no coffee maker, and no microwave. However... More

A lot of friends and I took a 2 day ski trip to Whitefish, we had the dorm room and two regular rooms, they where all clean, comfortable and a great price. Great hot tub, convenient location to everything in town, staff friendly and helpful, and only a short drive up the mountain. I would definitely stay here again.

The downtowner is a great inn located in the heart of whitefish and walking distance to everything. The inn offers a hot tub and very nice sized fitness room. Also a quick drive up to the mountain. I'll be staying there again.

Very central location - handy to everything. Parking onsite. A short walk to the Amtrak station if taking the train. The Downtowner is an average motel - everything is basic but functional, the place is a little tired but clean. Staff were friendly & efficient - we checked in early so they swapped our room to one that was already... More

Easy three minute walk from the Amtrak Station. Great service. Arriving late because of delayed train. Emailed Downtowner that we would be arriving after their office closed. No problem - they sent me room number and that key would be left under doormat. It was. Large, clean comfortable room, just what was needed after 27 hours on the train. In... More
