“Great stay”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

We stayed 3 nights this past week at this hotel and really enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly, the room was clean and well taken care of and the hotel was very quiet.

Check-in and check-out was very fast and efficient. The staff were ready for our arrival and departure with all the paperwork printed out.

We had originally requested adjoining rooms but they were booked. The front desk staff went out of their way to get us two rooms across the hall from each other so we could be close since we were travelling with children.

The hotel was very quiet even though we had booked the week of soccer state finals and had a hotel full of high school kids. The kids were great, so polite, and the staff at breakfast made sure the food was replenished fast when the kids came in. We never had to wait for anything even with the breakfast room full.

The pool was great fun. It was nice and warm and was open 24 hours. The pool wasn't horribly busy either, which was nice.

We really enjoyed being outside of town. It's not like Kalispell is very big, or traffic is very heavy so we could usually make it from the hotel to Walmart on the other side of town in just a few minutes. It was also nice to be close to Big Fork for a quick trip to the lake.

The staff at the front desk even helped us to search the hotel for a cart on checkout day so we could get the insane amount of shopping bags to the car. ;)

We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Hi Mary S.

Thank you very much for staying with us and telling us about your experience!

We have so much to offer for our breakfast and it is included with the room, which is amazing! Since you have tried what we have in the mornings, next time you come through Kalispell I highly recommend breakfast or even brunch at Somers Bay Café, especially if you sleep in past our breakfast hours. For dinner or lunch, the Tamarack is a great choice!

We look forward to seeing you again soon! Thank you again.

We were only at this hotel for a 1 night stay in October 2012. Front Desk staff were courteous, effiicient and very helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our breakfast in a spacious dining area with a beautiful view of the sunrise. Although the hotel is not right in Kalispell, we did not find that a detraction. We enjoyed our dinner in their recommended restaurant in a near by small community. If our path leads back to this area, we wil re-visit this location..

Room Tip: We were on 3rd floor and experienced a quiet stay.

Hello Kathleen I,

Thank you so much for your time with us as well as for sharing your experience for everyone!

The sunrise in the Flathead valley is one of a kind, isn’t it!? The sun coming over the Rockies is something to be experienced first hand. The breakfast room is very large yet cozy and is filled with some amazing scents from the biscuits and gravy, to the Belgian waffles, and Montana Hot Apple oatmeal. The large windows facing East allows the sun to come right in and it is beautiful!

Thank you so much for staying with us and we hope that your path does lead you back here!

We arrived at the hotel very late, the check in process was quick. We had a room keys within 5 minutes of pulling into the hotel parking lot. I had seen photo's online, but was immensely surprised and pleased at how lovely the room was as well as the public areas including the ballrooms. We came to othe hotel for the 24 hour Prayer Center Ministry that was held October 12 and 13th. Wonderful facility and wonderful breakfast! Staff is very friendly - exceptional front desk staff!!!!

Booked this hotel through Hotwire, which I won't do again. Not a huge fan of Best Westerns but this one was alright. The rooms were clean, pool was ok, breakfast wasn't much. Not the best spot if you are looking to shop in the Kalispell/Whitefish area.
All in all, this hotel was clean and reasonably priced.

I stayed one night at this property in October 2012. The hotel seems to be very new. The staff was extremely friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel was very busy the night I was there but my room was quiet. The breakfast was fine and there was free internet.

The hotel is not really in Kalispell. It is 7 miles South of town, so if you want to be able to walk to some place for dinner, this is not likely to be possible. There is a gas station with c-store beside the hotel, but not much else.

I would stay here again.

Thank you very much for your great review of the Flathead Lake Inn and Suites! From many conversations with management and various staff here, they seem to all concur, “customers are family” at this hotel.

While there are no restaurants here in the parking lot nor across the street, a very quaint town called Somers is just a mile away with some amazing food! Tiebuckers and Somers Bay Café are just a couple restaurants there and their food is very good! We hope that you try one of these great places the next time you come through here!

Se stayed here for two nights because the closer hotels were booked even though weekdays in October. Public and guest areas were clean and attractive and staff was very friendly. Had some miscommunications though - room was as far from desk as possible and when arriving, the key did not work - so all the way back to front desk, through the parking lot because no access from stairs. Then next morning met cleaning staff and when we answered we did not need clean towels, they assumed we did not want any service - so no coffee in room and garbages full. Breakfast was good but more miscommunication - we were told 9:30 but were there just before 9 and had breakfast. Several came after 9 to learn that breakfast ended at 9. To their credit, staff did eventually decide to continue breakfast (but some were already turned away). We did enjoy Bigfork and our visit to Kalispell and the hotel is fine if you understand you are in a rural area and not in the the city.

Room Tip: Elevator is at front of hotel so all rooms down the hall are further and further away - elderly and...

We are very grateful that you took your time to offer feedback on your time spent with us! We have such a wonderful staff here, they are willing to go above and beyond the call of duty as well as work longer than expected to see that customers needs are met.

We are very happy to bring items to rooms as well as make second or even third trips for service if need be to make sure that our guests feel as if they are at a place better than at home. We’ve changed our breakfast hours recently as well to our winter hours, this provides a greater convenience for everyone staying here.

A few of the greatest reasons to stay with us like you said, other than the wonderful service received and beautiful rooms, is for the short walk to the amazing Flathead Lake and quick drive to either Lakeside, Somers, Bigfork, or Kalispell. It’s a very central location to all of these places.
