This is an older property that needs some updating and not worth the cost. The staff was not attentive when we checked in and we had to wait while he was on the computer.The meal in their restaurant was very overpriced for the quality and amount. We would not stay there again.

Very tired hotel. Could tell it was built in the 80s with very little done to it since. On third floor and the hotel has no elevator. Monday night meant dining room closed although bar was open for food. Hotel is a Ski lodge some distance from town. Don't stay here if your just overnighting. Stay in town in Whitefish.... More

This is a really beautiful building inside and out that makes you feel instantly relaxed. Our room was gorgeous - very spacious, clean and with everything we wanted. A fantastic base from which to walk or cycle.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The breakfast was a little on the bizarre side but the rooms were nice and clean. We had to adjoining rooms so that was fun since we were traveling with my brothers family. Would defiantly stay here again. We stayed here in July and it was so peaceful. Loved this area.

We stayed during the summer, so it was "off" season, which mean it was very quiet. The staff was great, the place was clean and nice. It's located up on Big Mountain road, they aren't kidding. Nice views. The ski lift caters to mountain bikers and hikers in the summer. We hiked up and rode the ski lift down. Kandahar... More

There were no elevators and we had older family members. . We asked to switch rooms but that wasn't an option. . And $300 a night and you get cold cuts in the morning. The rooms were nice and clean but lacking amenities.

We used the Kandahar Lodge as a base to explore Whitefish and Glacier National Park. Our family of six was able spread out in the spacious rooms and even cook dinner. The on site restaurant is excellent and the food is very good especially the wonderful breakfast.

We spent 3 nights at the Kandahar Lodge while visiting Whitefish and Glacier National Park. This is an older hotel but it has been updated. Beds were very comfortable. Wifi was very good.
