“Beautiful and Quiet!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

This is a beautiful location and unbelievably clean throughout. The staff is extremely kind, friendly and professional. The lobby was beautifully decorated for the holidays! Nice touch. The breakfast area is very spacious and clean with a beautiful view of the lake and mountains, My wife and I stayed in the Presidential Suite and enjoyed the warmth of the beautiful double glassed fireplace and soothing Jacuzzi tub! Elegant setting.
Will be back often to visit and explore this gorgeous area.

Room Tip: This is both a great family stay as well as for business, This would be an excellent place to hold a...

Hi DBCatmull!

Thank you very much for staying with us and sharing your great experience! It is great to hear that you took advantage of our beautiful rooms, facilities, as well as the surrounding area. The breakfast is new for us, but, better than it ever has been! It is hard to believe that the Biscuits and Gravy, Eggs, and our own personal recipe, “Montana Hot Apple Oatmeal” became available just a few months ago. When we began managing the Flathead Lake Inn and Suites it was a simple breakfast. Everyone seems to love the change!

The Presidential suite is also a wonderful choice for relaxing as well as taking in the beautiful Rocky Mountain view from the third-floor balcony. You really cannot get any better than that!

Thank you for staying! We look forward to see you again soon.

I stayed here for 4 days and I only wish it could have been longer! The staff are the simply the best. They were helpful in planning spur of the moment excursions and the preparation involved.
The Flathead Lake boat tour to "Wild Horse Island" and Glacier National Park were incredible! The staff also recommended several restaurants that I really enjoyed. The accommodations were clean and comfortable and the scenery was breathtaking. I slept like a baby, which is not my typical experience at a hotel. I look forward to visiting again!

Hi Lizbiz1956,

Thank you very much for staying with us as well as telling us what you thought! The area around our hotel does have so much to offer and thankfully, our staff knows it very well. They have so many great recommendations for food, shopping, sights, and as you experienced – excursions! After so much to do and see, it is nice to have a comfy and warm bed to sleep in, and to experience a quiet and safe enough for your sleep to be like a baby. That’s excellent and just how we like it.

Thank you again from our family to you and your friends for staying! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

The hotel has a very beautiful view of the lake and mountains from the breakfast area. Very comfortable rooms, facility overall. Spectacular setting, very quiet, comfortable beds and clean accomodations. You can tell the friendly staff takes pride in their facility. Will most definitely return and stay here again.

Hi Marlene, Thank you so much for your great review of the hotel and surrounding area! The lake you refer to is Flathead Lake, I am confident you know that, especially because it is in the name of our hotel. It truly is a beautiful place! With over 180 miles of shoreline and being surrounded by mountainous snowcapped peaks it makes for quite the view. There are so many amazing things to do around there aside from just looking at it. There is adventure, thrill, curiosity, as well as majesty that surround Flathead lake!

One could walk just a mile from our hotel to catch a larger-than-life view of the giant lake or drive just a couple miles to see the beautiful shops and restaurants along its shore in either Big Fork or Lake Side.

On top of shopping and eating, there are plenty of places to fish, hike, boat, scuba dive, ski, snowmobile, snowshoe, as well as hunt. Anyone could come here and expect to have a good time!

Thank you very much for your wonderful review and the spending some time with us! We will see you again soon.

My wife and I experience a great time at your wonderful hotel in November. The room was very clean and staff treated us great. The breakfast was well supplied and overlooking the valley was a treat. The warmth of the fireplace and coziness of the the lobby was so relaxing. We will come back!

Room Tip: The hotel staff is preparing family suites in the summer of 2013 which will be a home away from home...

We recently stayed here while on business in Bigfork. It was just a 5 min. drive from the hotel to Bigfork. The staff was wonderful to work with and made check in and check out very fast. Our room was clean and comfortable, and breakfast was great - large room with view and lots of choices. After working all day, we appreciated coming back to a quiet welcoming hotel with a friendly knowledgable staff.

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.
