We stayed one night at the Grouse Mountain Lodge and made our reservation through the system that handles the park lodges. We were not able to get a room at the McDonald Lake Lodge, however we needed to be closer to Kalispell to get to the airport the next day. The hotel is a golf and ski lodge. They have an indoor pool and some outdoor spas, an indoor restaurant and a café that is partly outdoor and convention rooms. We were in the loft on the 3rd floor. It has two bedrooms upstairs, one with a king size bed and the other with 2 twins. Downstairs there is a sitting room with TV, a kitchen area with microwave, refrigerator and a sink, a bathroom with two sinks and one shower. The only disappointment was that the room appeared not to have been vacuumed. I found a cocktail toothpick and some food crumbs on the floor and some dead insects. The fan light control was not working in one of the bedrooms, which are dark without the ceiling light. The maintenance man was very nice to come and fix it but it took taking the light apart to find the chain that had been broken off most likely. Eventually we did get the light on. We did not need the fan.
I liked the lodge for its comfort. The little town of Whitefish is very nice. We drove into the park which took about 40 minutes and were able to have dinner at McDonald Lake Lodge. We were close to Kalispell. I am glad we were able to stay there and would recommend this hotel as an alternative to the ones in the park if you want the space, TV, modern amenities, etc. or can't get a reservation in the park lodges.
