We travelled to Kalispell for a two day mini holiday on May 6 & 7th. We took in shopping, dining and a little touring. Travelled south a few miles to Bigfork at Flathead lake as well ( a very neat tourist area with great little art stores and restaurants in well kept older buildings ).
We were very impressed with the La Quinta hotel. The most friendly staff coupled with the cleanest rooms and comfortable beds made it a great stay in Kalispell. Breakfast was included and consisted of waffles, fruit, yogurt, coffee, juice, toast, muffins, boiled eggs and biscuits with gravy. To top it off fresh baked cookies were served in the lobby at 7 in the evening. What more could one ask for?
The hotel also has an indoor pool and a small gym. The location is a little to the east of downtown as you drive in on Highway 2 from Columbia Falls. Appleby's is a good restaurant across the street from the hotel.
We would not hesitate to stay at the La Quinta again and will recommend it to others.
