Our stay at the bayview in polson, was not up to our expectations.. Upon check to our nonsmoking room we were first struck by the smell.. The room smelled like it was previously occupied by a wet dog, who smoked cheap cigars.. The hotel is located on a busy highway across from flathead lake, and is quite noisy. This place... More

We had reservations at another hotel, and wound up backtracking one hour to Bayview. We were the only car execpt a run down jalopy in front. We paid $112.00 and took our luggage to our room. We were afraid to touch anything. During the night, there seemed to be a fight in the room above us. Banging and knocking. This... More

Conveniently located near center of town. Great view of the lake. Room smelled of smoke even though it was supposedly non smoking. Didn't really care for this place, if owner updated it a bit it would be better! Priced accordingly.

The rooms are not perfect but they are roomy enough for 4 adults. The beds are comfortable and everything works. It has a great location on 93. Great view of Flathead Lake and The Mission Mountains. Will always return!

This hotel could be very nice if it was renovated and placed under new management. You do not get what you pay for. Not at all. Let's get down to business: One of the employees, an older lady, was arguing with a guy who looked to be about 23. Apparently this guy had more people in his room than he... More

this is possibly from disgruntled employee. Breakfast bar has cereal, even gluten free, milk and juice in thermal carafes that are cleaned and emptied, fresh fruit too. sidewalk is normal sidewalk, WIFI is normal if provider has issues, nothing can be done on our end. driveway is sloped, any one with a low rider can drive out on angle without...

This is a nice, clean, locally owned hotel with a great view of the bay at a very reasonable price. We booked a room for one night and decided to stay an extra day instead of moving on to something else at twice the price. You need to set your expectations appropriately to fully appreciate the Bayview. If you want... More

I ended up here and the room was in need of serious maintenance and updates. All the furniture is weary.....the laminate surfaces are wearing off, and the drawer fronts are detached on a couple of drawers. There was water damage over the shower. The hotel room had a microwave and refrigerator. The bedspread had in black magic marker the hotel... More

the reviewer said main use of motel is to provide sleep and shower, which according to review we did provide that,plus a spectacular view. yes laminate is older, but our prices reflect that. new furniture in resort doubles the rate. reviewer decided to have more reasonnable rate instead of paying more. room was clean, staff accomodating,breakfast food provided cereal, pastries,...

We made reservations 3 months ago for 2 rooms and then verified 2 weeks ago. When we arrived they had sold our second room to someone else. We had to pay double the $$ to put the other family at a motel down the street. When we got that taken care of we checked into our room at the Bayview.... More

We only had one reservation for this person, did not sell 'other' as stated. She got a room for the coach at another motel, so there were other rooms available in town, but for more money. She had no complaints on her room, until she was leaving, asked for her money back because the coach had to pay more somewhere... More
