Late arrival in to Kalispell

I am trying to nail down our flight for our September trip (next month). If we arrive in to FCA at 11:30 pm, are there recommendations for a hotel near the airport with free shuttle service? Are the car rental counters at the airport open late? Thanks!

When we arrived that late we called the hotel ahead of time and they agreed to meet us. They usually stop pick ups at 11. Best Western Rocky Mountain Lodge. I think the rental car agencies may be open till midnight but am not sure One member or our party took the hotel shuttle back to the airport the next morning and got the car. Saved a days rental when we really weren't going to use the car.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn and the shuttle will be you up all hours- just call ahead of time.

Is the Homewood Suites hotel open yet?

Contact the Hilton chain to find out if the new Homewood Suites will be open by then. Kinda hard to tell by the looks of all the construction crews working there now.

The flight crews stay at the Red Lion Hotel in Kalispell, which has a free shuttle. Free shuttles are also available for the Hampton Inn and the Hilton Garden Inn, both in Kalispell. They meet the late night flights.

As noted, the car rental desks stay open until the last flights arrive (often arriving late, BTW).

You can also make a reservation for a taxi to take you to anywhere in the Flathead Valley. Flathead-Glacier Transportation is a reliable one: 406-892-3390.
