“Noisy local-Loud local drunks”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2006

It was full of local kids and people in the hallways and very noisy. These people were inconsiderate of others. In the evening some drunk guys were aggressive and bothering us. Actually we were a little afraid....Not a classy place and to pricy for what you are not getting.

While this Tribally-owned resort is in a beautiful location and fancy looking, there is one major, repeatable problem. The noise. While people from out of the area expect a quiet elegant experience.. they do not know that the local tribe offers deep discounts to their members to stay there. This means locals use the hotel and the pool like its a public playground facility and kids run around in the hallways. I have been present for this.
In April 2004 and Sept 2004, our family members came to visit us and stayed at the hotel. Both times they couldn't use the pool because it was packed with local kids.

The first visit, my In-laws could not get to sleep, due to children running around in the hallways and people partying and making loud noise in the hall late at night. My In-laws reported it to the front desk in the morning and fortunately the front desk applied a discount to their stay.
Many months later, my parents and sister were rudely awakened by a domestic dispute and saw blood on the exit door the next morning. They were given a credit for their stay.

This is completely unacceptable! Both families will never stay there again and I definitely do NOT recommend this so-called resort to anyone.

Located on the shore of beautiful Flathead Lake in Montana, a few miles off the centre of Polson, this is a beautiful hotel in a great location. We arrived on a Sunday, there were a lot of family parties (and we presume that the family parties are just replaced by company parties and/or seminars and conventions during the weekdays). It was very busy in the aisles and in the large ballrooms but, to be fair, we did not suffer any inconvenience within the rooms. Nevertheless, the service at the reception desk was a little bit substandard.
We had reserved two rooms with lake view but one of the two was not available and we had to accept a regular room. It was a pity because the lake view from the (very small) individual balcony was really enjoyable.
Restaurant is just OK...
Very difficult to spot the Flathead Indians who are supposed to run this (overall well kept) hotel!
