hotels close to Kalispell airport


The last night of my trip back from Glacier I want to spend in Kalispell, close to the airport (it is a 7am flight so I do not want to drive all the way from Many Glacier Hotel super early to catch the plane). Any recommendations ? I've checked some hotels in expedia but I want to get some feedback from this board.

Thanks !

When I have an early flight, I still prefer to enjoy my last night in the Park but generally stay at Village Inn at Apgar (which is right on Lake McDonald and every room has a view across the Lake to the mountains).

It is a 25-30 minute drive from Village Inn to the airport (to me losing 20 minutes of sleep is well worth staying in the Park over staying at a hotel 5 minutes from the airport)....

oh, I did not think of that ... how about the Lake McDonald Lodge ? I think the Villa Inn is booked for my dates.

Grand Hotel in downtown Kalispell is a great place. Very homey and a nice wrap-up to your trip after being in park accommodations.

The Red Lion - also downtown Kalispell is a nice hotel. If there are only two of you - ask for one of their newer king rooms. - they are very nicely kept up.

A 7 a.m. flight means you need no less than a one-hour advance check-in, because several flights leave around that same time and the line through security can be painfully slow, and the plane will leave without you.

Ditto to the two Kalispell hotel suggestions above....the Red Lion is where the airline crews stay, so you could ride in on the hotel shuttle with the crew if you've returned your rental car the night before. Both hotels are downtown and there are several good restaurants within a few blocks. It's still a 10-15 minute drive from downtown to FCA, and there are no really close hotels to FCA.
