Reviewed July 2, 2013

The Red Lion Kalispell was a pleasant surprise tucked away in downtown Kalispell. The beds were comfortable and the attrium area was great for our team to unwind. The breakfast was good, more variety.

Michael K, Thank you for your review. The location of our hotel in downtown Kalispell has many advantages: within walking distance of our downtown merchants, attached to the Kalispell Center Mall and a few blocks away from some great eateries. I am glad you enjoyed your stay.

This is now the third time we have stayed at the Red Lion in Kalispell and continue to be exceptionally pleased with the friendly staff, overall cleanliness of the entire facility and the very comfortably rooms. The "free breakfast" is fabulous. I overheard other hotel guests commenting on how much superior the Red Lion "free" breakfast is compared to any other hotel they had stayed. We will most definitely search out the Red Lion Hotels in our future travels to the western USA.

Spent one night here in June 2013. Room was spacious and clean, front desk staff was the super friendly, breakfast was one of the best I've ever had at a hotel - they had an omlette station! Pool area was nice and clean. Nice to be attached to the mall, even if it's not the doesn't have a lot of stores. Only complaint was we had to listen to kids running around in the room above us.

I have done a little traveling over the past few years, and I like to live 'on the fly'. No plans, just check out different places. Hop in the SUV and sleep where I stop. What a surprise (and it takes something special to surprise and impress me), when I was directed by a local in Kalispell to the Red Lion Hotel.. I don't search for the fancy/shmancy places, but I do enjoy good rest. Red Lion, to quote a famous man, "I'll be back"! Thank you,

My children and I stayed one night. Our room was comfy and quiet. Front desk service was friendly and helpful (I needed a razor). We enjoyed the suana. The complimentary breakfast was unusually high quality.

Dear Lisa (Hotel GM),

My friend, Cary Uzelman, and I each used one week of our extremely valuable, and limited, holiday weeks to get in some good 'ole male bonding and golf. This year, we choose the Kalispell area and the Red Lion Hotel. There are numerous variables that can make or break a golf holiday; everything from the weather, golf course conditions, food and accommodations. I am taking this opportunity to let you know that the Red Lion Hotel and its staff were absolutely outstanding! Right from check-in to check-out, our every need and requests were met with eagerness and commitment to customer service.

I would like to take this opportunity to identify some of your staff that made our trip unforgettable.

The second we enter the hotel, we were greeted with enthusiasm and genuine "happy to see you" smiles from Michelle and Shyloe. They were both very gracious and patient with our bombardment of questions, as neither Cary nor I had ever been in the Kalispell area before. Not only were they instrumental in assisting us in our dinning and entertainment selections, but Michelle went the extra mile to secure shuttle service to the golf courses for the entire week.

Once we entered the room, we were surprised to received a gift of Red Lion golf towels and tees. Very simple, yet extremely comforting touch...well done. The room was spacious and current, with great access to the courtyard and pool/hot tub facilities. It was clean and completely stocked and ready to meet our hotel room expectations. You would be surprised how many times this simple expectation is not met.

The golf course shuttle service from day one, and every day thereafter, was nothing short of spectacular. We absolutely fell in love with Sam! Not only was he there to ensure we got our often over server and obnoxious selves home safe, but he was sincerely concerned with meeting our every need. He addressed our inquires with vigor and a desire to help. He constantly "bell hopped" our golf bags and I don't think we ever touched the van door handle, as he was always there to open and close it for us. Cary and I have rarely found this level of shuttle service in our numerous trips to Las Vegas. Lisa, please do whatever it takes to keep this man around. He is an absolute treasure.

I would like to put forward a special appreciation to the "behind the scenes" staff that rarely get the recognition they desire. Everyday, we enjoyed the breakfast. The culinary staff were friendly and pleasant to deal with. Money is not an issue for us, but to have a complimentary service like this was appreciated. From the house keeping staff to the maintenance staff, no matter the time of day or night, they were always quick to initiated a "hello." A maintenance member observed me walking around with an ice bucket in my hand, wondering the halls. Not only did he educate me on the locations of the ice machines, but he stopped what he was doing and personally walked me to the closest machine. Even the "security guard" that reminded me of my overstay in the outdoor hot tube on Sunday night was polite and pleasant to deal with.

In closing, your staff was amazing. I'd like to send out a special thanks to Jason for his assistance with finding a great place to watch playoff hockey. Jason is a great guy and you should value his employment. But before I leave you with this correspondence, we would like to recognize Shyloe as an outstanding employee. Everyday, she always greeted us with a smile and shared in our genuine excitement to what debauchery was to come. We looked forward to seeing her daily, as she always had suggestions and advice as to ways to improve our holiday. She especially showed her professionalism, as she handled and absorbed without a stutter, our friendly, yet flirtatious Canadian personalities. She made our trip!

Not only will the Red Lion be our hotel of choice, but I have cc'd Trish (our golf travel agent) in on this email. Hopefully this letter of appreciation will garner more business for the Red Lion. Keep up the great work and please thank you everyone for making our trip one to remember.

Customer forever,
Jay

The location of this hotel is convenient to Glacier NP, as well as restaurants & shops in Kalispell. The breakfast was excellent, including made-to-order omelets. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the rooms were quiet, despite the size of the hotel and the number of guests. The room, hallways and common areas were all spotless. The only issue we had during our stay was that the door to our room was not quite plumb, so we had to close it with more force that we liked -- not an issue for us, but we didn't want it to disturb other guests. The hotel staff were already aware of the issue and working on fixing it.
