“BEWARE”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

BEWARE: They do not send written confirmation of bookings or cancellations. Nor will they accommodate changes in a reservation. We ended up cancelling reservation 3 days before arrival and they immediatly charged our credit card before we even hung up the phone. Their non-existant cancellation policy is not communicated and no where to be found. Friends that still stayed at the hotel that weekend confirmed there was no vacancy which suggests they double sold our room........

The downtowner is in a perfect location. It is a 10-15 minute drive to Whitefish Mountain and a 2 minute walk to all the bars and restaurants in downtown Whitefish. The rooms are very basic - no fridge (unless you ask for them to bring one to your room with 24 hours notice), no coffee maker, and no microwave. However the rooms are clean, there is a complimentary bagel station for breakfast, good wifi, and the hot tub is outside and covered. I did find the room rate a little steep, but the location certainly makes up for the extra cost. I was also not happy when we requested a fridge for our room and they said they would deliver one the following day, but the fridge never arrived. However, for a ski weekend in Whitefish, the Downtowner is a good place to stay and party!

Room Tip: Rooms on the bottom floor are smaller, but newly renovated. Rooms on second floor are very large bu...

A lot of friends and I took a 2 day ski trip to Whitefish, we had the dorm room and two regular rooms, they where all clean, comfortable and a great price. Great hot tub, convenient location to everything in town, staff friendly and helpful, and only a short drive up the mountain. I would definitely stay here again.

The downtowner is a great inn located in the heart of whitefish and walking distance to everything. The inn offers a hot tub and very nice sized fitness room. Also a quick drive up to the mountain. I'll be staying there again.

Very central location - handy to everything. Parking onsite. A short walk to the Amtrak station if taking the train. The Downtowner is an average motel - everything is basic but functional, the place is a little tired but clean. Staff were friendly & efficient - we checked in early so they swapped our room to one that was already made up. Continental breakfast is (mini) bagels and coffee.
Due to location, it was quite noisy overnight.
Free, reliable wifi in the room.
