This place was awesome! Perfect location. Very easy walk along the river into town. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is good. Room was spacious and clean. We had our dogs with us and it worked out great. Whitefish was a bit challenging to find outdoor seating with the dogs. Tuesday night farmer’s market was not dog friendly at all!

From the time of booking everyone I spoke with was very friendly and knowledgable of the area. The room was spacious and very clean. They had plenty of things for people to do. They had a game room with board games and a pool table that was free to use. They had couches in this area if people just wanted to hang out. They had a laundry room in which you could wash your clothes for free as well. Our room had a patio with chairs and you could see the river where you could go kayaking if you wanted to, Kayaks were provided for those wanting to kayak. They had popcorn in the evening and a continental breakfast in the mornings.

No complaints here!

The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Rooms are comfortable and very clean. If you like taquitos, that’s what is for breakfast. We elected to go elsewhere. They have fresh cookies and popcorn in lobby all day long. The cookies are so yummy! We would definitely stay here again!

Excellent Choice

This our Choice hotel in Whitefish! Lots of small perks that add up to a very pleasant stay. We had a small issue with the room and Kelly (super staff member) at the front desk was very efficient in moving us to a different room. The entire staff are VERY accomodating and will work quickly to resolve any issues related to your stay. Great pool in the summer!!

Mediocre hotel with lingering smells and terrible soundproofing

Having stayed at this hotel last year and being a dedicated review reader, I booked it for two nights over Labor Day weekend. I remembered that the kids enjoyed the amenities (pool, bikes, kayaks) and that the hotel was close to downtown. What a difference a year makes. Being at capacity, I discovered that this hotel has HORRIBLE HORRIBLE SOUNDPROOFING- a WAILING baby was heard from our room the entirety of the stay - at 5pm, 12am, 6 am- never stopped and heard right through the walls (when I mentioned this to desk staff in the morning I was asked if I had reported them the night before so the hotel could enforce quiet hours. How do you enforce quiet hours for a wailing baby at 12am??). Every time the room upstairs flushed or showered or turned on water an extremely loud sound of rushing water filled the room both keeping us awake and waking us up. A terrible sewage smell in the elevator made us take the stairs during our stay. The beds were so soft I could hardly walk in the morning. Some pubic hairs were in the center of the bathroom floor when we arrived. Our mini fridge smelled like marijuana, and the same smell permeated our room when the air conditioner turned on. Breakfast and coffee were so mediocre we ate each morning in town. Those bikes we remembered so fondly nearly caused a good fall on the gravel trail to town when I discovered the brakes didn’t work (not to mention the handlebars were far from straight). Having paid luxury prices for a 2 night stay, we had a bad motel experience. This is a lot of complaining, but I waited 2 weeks to review and still feel strongly about every word written. This hotel is a terrible value. On night 3 we opted for the Marriott Residence Inn in downtown Missoula. We paid less for a clean, modern, two room suite with wonderful mattresses and zero noise where we thankfully slept like rocks.
