I use to live in Whitefish and my employer would put all the very upper management who had three letters after their names at the Grouse Mountain Lodge whenever they came to town. I always thought that meant it was the fancy place in town. Now that I moved away from Whitefish my employer sent me back to work for a few days. I'm not one of the suit wearing management people so I thought it was a treat to get to stay here. Now my guess is the suit wearing upper management people like to play golf and that is why they get to say here.
Not being an employee who has one of the upper floor offices I just got to stay in a Standard Room. The room was nice and had some visible signs that attempts had been made to upgrade the room. The carpet appeared to have been replaced within the last 10 years. The walls had a few scuffs, chips, and spilled "liquids" on them but they had been repainted since the carpet had been replaced, maybe within 8 years. This was determined as there were paint splashes on the carpet. The paint splashes weren't as concerning as the "liquids" on the walls. The hotel could invest in a vacuum that is able to clean closer to the walls too.
The bathroom was clean and the shower worked. I didn't slip and fall while showering because of the fine stick on anti-slip stickers on the tub floor. It has been a while since I had seen anti-slip stickers in a tub. Don't stay here if you expect to grab up some free shampoos, soaps, and lotion bottles. There are push button shampoo and soap dispensers in the shower and above each sink.
I had a strong Wi-Fi signal in my room but the internet was a little slow. Since the videos weren't loading I gave up on watching news clips from the world outside Montana. The bed was very comfortable and there was an ample number of pillows. I did enjoy the well kept, very nice looking front lobby. It lifted up my first impression high enough that when I saw my room I think people in other rooms could hear it fall.
All in all it wasn't to bad of a place but definitely not what I expected or worth $219 a night. I wouldn't pay the high price to stay at the Grouse Mountain Lodge unless I wanted to play golf and absolutely couldn't drive to the club house. I have stayed in nicer budget motels.
