Unfortunately this hotel failed to live-up to its potential. Situated atop a magnificent mountain with spectacular views there was an opportunity to be a great experience. A front desk clerk with limited social skills & a dirty room were significant disappointments for a 330$ / night room. There was one shining star at the Kandahar Lodge and that was the... More

Nice place, liked the lobby fireplace & bar! Good location; Convenient to downtown Whitefish. The room was comfortable, but felt that it needed updating. Breakfast was limited, but fine. Wish we could have tried the restaurant, but we were only there a couple of days.

What a hotel! I can't even imagine how wonderful it would be in the winter. Great rooms, helpful staff, awesome views, excellent 5 star Kandahar Cafe! You couldn't have asked for a more beautiful setting for our visit to Glacier National Park. A little far out of Whitefish, MT which was our goal. Need to try it in the ski... More

Really friendly and helpful staff, gave the place a homely vibe. The lobby looked nice and comfortable, a great place to relax with a beer or wine. Rooms were big with a kitchenette. Free breaky was good - fresh fruit, yogurt, toast, bagels & cream cheese, oats and muffins.

We booked into the hotel for three nights at the start of our Glacier NP visit. The place was great. the lobby/living area was nice and even during the middle of the summer it was nice having a huge fire going in the fireplace. Our room was on the first floor so we weren't bothered by the fact that the... More

We stayed up at the Kandahar lodge for July 4th and had a great and memorable time. Very close to the town of Whitefish. Only about 5-7 minutes up the mountain. If you're into the rustic mountain lodge like I am then you love this place.

The room was more than expected, had everything we needed and more. The bed was amazingly comfortable. Would suggest the lodge for anyone heading to Whitefish. Couldn't have asked for anything more...

The location is beautiful. The staff was adequate. No one working there had a smile or friendly banter. It was very business like. The cleanliness was lacking. My room was not vacuumed the entire 6 nights.

Good location to lay over before entering GNP, especially, since the GTSR was not fully opened due to fires when we were there. Had a very special Tree Top Walk with Kelsey. Comfortable room and very good restaurant.

I returned to the Kandahar Lodge this year because I loved it 5 years ago. This time it was beautiful as ever but we were awakened by party noise from a nearby room after midnight. The loud noise kept both my husband and I awake and went on until after 2am. Only after a second call to the front desk... More
