“Beautiful place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

The hotel is lovely and in an excellent location. The room was comfortable and spacious. The bed was very nice, comfortable and great pillows. The breakfast is also very good with lots of choices and a chef to make omeletes.

I usually find perfectly good accomodations in the $100-$130 range so was dissapointed to find on my Trip Advisor search that a comparable room in Kalispell was going to be about $100 higher. I chose the Red Lion because they had a vacancy and I got the price down to $177.00 instead of $239.00 by signing up for Red Lion Rewards.

The room was a bit dated, carpet and pull out couch, our 2 daughters slept on the pull out and had to use pillows for comfort as the mattress was terrible. Breakfast was great and so was the fitness area. The pool was a few degrees too cold and the out door hot tub wasn't working.

Been to Montana on Official visit, Had to stay for 3 nights with worst ever been hotel. This hotel is at Kalispell downtown which is nearer to many restaurants, that is the only one advantage I saw staying in this hotel but, it is not worth staying only for that reason. House keeping, response from front desk and response from customer care is really bad. They have only one charging point so, we have to run around for charging Mobile, iPad, Laptop etc. They charge $240 per day & no proper house keeping, they don't change all the bathroom items, bed spreads, don't clean the bathroom & toilets. Air condition is of older one which can't be controlled after one point. The charges are high with poor service so recommended to stay away from this hotel.

Room Tip: My advice is not to select the hotel

The hotel is good but the shuttle service was terrible when we were there and there was no attempt made to rectify this situation in our mind. We waited 1 hour and 40 minutes for the shuttle at the airport.

The room and be were comfortable. However, the property needs updating. The carpets are dated and stained throughput and the floor at the reception area was in need of cleaning. one of the lights in our room was burnt out but the receptionist had it replaced promptly. The halls are very dark and modern fixtures and new carpet would help alleviate the feeling of dinginess.

We stayed two nights after planning the trip short notice. Not much was available and the rate was pretty good. On the plus side, the bed was very comfortable and the sheets clean. Plenty of room in the room and bathroom. And the breakfast was pretty decent. You can get a cooked to order omelet. They have a nice little inner courtyard where you could sit and relax, and fire pit. The hallways seem dark and the carpets old and dirty looking. Everything just seemed old and dated. I was not really comfortable there. Our reason for being in the area was to go to Glacier National Park, and it was an easy drive, but took an hour or so. The staff was friendly. So, it's a toss up. Next time, I will plan in advance and look for other arrangements, but it served a purpose with no frills. Just OK in my opinion.
