We spent just one night at the Holiday Inn Express and we were very impressed! We would have spent more nights there but we needed a place with a kitchen. Our experience was excellent. We called from the Amtrak station in town at 9pm with no prior transportation arrangements. Despite this, they sent a shuttle over right away, free of... More

When we arrived the phone would not work for outside calls and we had to call the desk. Then the remote would not work - the girl at the desk said the handy man would be there in 20 minutes and we would have to wait. We had traveled a long ways and wanted to take showers and crawl into... More

After reading some of the reviews here I was expecting the possiblity of a noisy room with spotty cutomer service. Overall, this hotel exceeded my expectations. I asked for a second floor room and got it. Check in was easy and the woman who checked us in went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. When she... More

We stayed at this hotel two nights, about 12 days apart. We took the train to Whitefish and spent one night, then vacationed in the Canadian Rockes, and Glacier NP, before returning to stay one more night before going home on the train. We liked it. We always get upstairs rooms to avoid having people 'walk on our heads'. This... More

We were passing through the Whitefish-Kalispell area and just needed a hotel room for the night. The front desk service was very friendly and efficient and we got a standard double queen room on the main floor for two of us and our little dog. To begin with we were quite happy with the hotel. The room was clean and... More

This hotel was great. We had a suite (which we got with Priority Club points) and it was huge. Flat screen, reclincer, large club chair, sofa, microwave, mini frig. Kids will love the slide at the indoor pool. It was sparkling clean, free breakfast and cookies in the lobby.

We chose to stay at this hotel because we were traveling with kids. The 90 foot slide was a big attraction. Too bad it was not 90 foot. There was no pool. Just a small area at the bottom of the slide which did not allow swimming. Slide & hot tubs close at 10:00 pm. A weight room was advertised... More

I would definately recommend this hotel! it was super clean and everyone who worked here was super friendly! The rooms were great and if you want a larger room it is about 20 dollars more a night and well worth it the beds are extremely comfortable and they have a pool and 2 hot tubs outside which is really nice....
