We spent three nights here in early July and loved it. We were looking for a place close to Glacier as well as one that had an outdoor pool. This hotel was wonderful. It was small, 24 rooms but newly remodeled. The rooms were great and very quiet & comfortable. There was an indoor and outdoor pool as well as an outdoor hot tub all right across the parking lot. There also was a larger, 18+ workout facility & outdoor hot tub. Both were very clean and well kept-up. We did not eat at the restaurant or use the spa facilities on this trip, but both were very nice and priced at what you'd expect at a resort. We didn't golf on this trip, but would love to come back to try the course. There was a nice walking path around the property. There were condo's and homes to rent as well. All looked very nice although some of the condos did look a bit dated on the outside. The only downside was the fact that the wi-fi was not working during our stay.

Room Tip: Ask for upstairs, vaulted ceilings on the upper level. Either side has nice views, but we had the g...

We stayed for two days while visiting West Glacier National Park. We were extremely pleased to find this Beautiful Mountain Resort or Retreat as we call it! The Resort had very nice Restaurants, beautiful room in the lodge, laundry facility, pools, spas, workout & recreational facilities and a Golf course! It was very comfortable and a Beautiful Resort. The staff were helpful and friendly. We would definitely return and highly recommend!

We stayed at the Inn July 1-4, 2014. We were very pleasantly surprised and pleased. Firstly, it's reasonably small, maybe 32 rooms. We are golfers and had a room on the gold course side. It was quiet in our room even though we had a couple next door with a toddler and kids across the hall. Large room, double sink bathroom and our unit had a large tiled shower, no tub which fit us just fine. Secondly being golfers we simply walked down the hall, one floor down and we were In the pro shop. The course was crowded being Canada Day and July 4 week but we were able to get on the course 2 days. We were able to do a couple loads of laundry on site. The pool is just across the parking lot. We ate at Truby's, the on-site restaurant. Don't hesitate to eat here, it's not a golf course snack bar but a very good locally owned restaurant. Great food. We did not see one of the condo units as they were booked for the busy holiday week so cannot comment on those accommodations. 30 minutes to the west entrance of Glacier National Park. Great 4 days, would recommend to any couple.

Room Tip: Golf course side was quiet and great views.

Stay 4 nights with friends in a 2 bedroom condo. The unit was spacious and very clean. The view from the patio and living room looked over a nicely manicured golf course. Grounds were very well maintained. The timeshare units are nicely Intergrated into a community of upscale single family and townhouse homes with all appearing to blend perfectly.
Would certainly return and recommend to others

According to the room description and photos provided by expedia, I had reserved and paid for a condominimum. But when I arrived at the location, I was ushered into a regular hotel room - very nicely appointed, but nonethess a room, not a condominium with a separate kitchen and living room as the photos on expedia had shown. The night clerk apologized and said that according to the documents she received from expedia, I had reserved a regular hotel room. Okay, big mix-up and disappointment. Not the hotel's fault. I understood that. But when I tried to cancel the rest of my stay (I had reserved for four days) with 48 hour advance notice (the last two days) because I needed a kitchen as I am diabeic and don't eat out, the manager STILL wanted to charge me a full night's stay plus a penalty fee. I couldn't understand that. I was staying in the hotel for two days in order to give him 48 hours notice, and I'm still being charged like that! I really had to fight for my rights, and it turned out to be a very unpleasant and demoralizing experience.

Our family of 4 stayed for a week through an RCI trade. Great location, We came into Whitefish late on Amtrak. I had called to make them aware of the delay. They assured me the shuttle driver would be there waiting for us. Sure enough he was. We arrived at 12:30 am, made the short 15 minute drive to the resort. Front desk was "closed", maintenance checked us in and shuttle took us to our condo in building 3. We were on the second floor, a two bedroom condo. It was spacious, clean and well equiped - kitchen, linens, etc. (no shampoo or conditioner. I knew this from reading another reveiw). I was not able to pick our rental car at the airport since we arrived after midnight. The resort had a shuttle driver take to the airpiort the next morning at 8:00 to get our car. (I think they got him out of bed) He was very nice and waited for me to get the car so I could follow him back (I told him I was directionally impaired). A 24 hour grocery store is at the end of the road; convient and reasonable. The conceire, Jim, was very helpful. I visited with him every morning before heading out for the day. He provded maps and advice for our daily travels. My daughter liked checking the videos out of the rec center. We didn't use any of the other facilities/amenties. We cooked on the electric grill. I was thankful for the stacked washer/dryer and detergent they provided. I was able to wash everything for week two of our trip. Beatiful views, great location and a wonderful staff!

This was our headquarters for our week long visit to Glacier National Park. The resort is about 15 highway miles from West Glacier. We used the pools, restaurant, and golf course while there. The condo was clean and well maintained. The full kitchen was fully equipped and convenient. The rooms were quiet and comfortable. Service at the restaurant was a little slow, but it was very busy. The golf course is excellent and well maintained. Guests get a 25% discount on green fees. There is no dress code for golf. As the pro shop said, "This is Montana." The large nearby super market has everything you might need at very reasonable prices.
