“Hawaii on Flathead Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

We stayed in October just one night. The room is darling with a mini kitchen. The restaurant across the street is great as is Flathead Brewing down a half block. We hiked and the weather was cool. Would be fun to come back in the summer. Think it's a great location on the lake. We met many friendly people at both restaurants, both diners and employees. Doesn't seem to be a grocery nearby, so I'd bring food to cook for breakfast.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Islander! Service was amazing and the rooms were beautiful and clean. The themed rooms were adorable and they ha everything you could ever need! Beds were comfy and rooms were quiet. Wish we could stay longer!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

The bed was very uncomfortable in fact lumpy. Pillows were fine
The small room was clean and so was bathroom. Sink outside bathroom which was a plus. This is one reason to give average from poor
The fridge was unbalanced so husband put a piece of cardboard to balance & very tiny table (garden bristo table)
You could hear the noise from traffic other rooms and definitely the entertainment.
It was a Friday night so the highway was busy.
Small motel units (done in double) with themes
Would not stay longer than one night.

Room Tip: Perhaps the suites would be a lot more economical and larger in size

I only stayed one night here. It was very clean and was nice large room with a lovely arch in the middle of the room that really added to the appeal and feel of the room. It was quiet and decorated in a Caribbean theme with colors of blue and white. It is close to Bigfork and right across the road from the lake. The staff was very friendly and there were the usual amenities of micro, fridge and coffee. The Raven, a bar across the road, served some wonderful appetizers. I was completely satisfied. There was a good wifi connection too.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I first made a reservation here, but was drawn to it for some reason. I was a bit concerned when I saw it wasn't IN Bigfork - we had reserved it because we had tickets for the theater that night. But it is beautifully situated across the hiway from Flathead Lake, so that was a plus. The motel itself is quite nice. Very clean, well kept and the staff was great. Sound is a little bit of a problem. We could hear the person in the next room talking on the phone (through door joining the rooms), so if they were TV watchers of loud there may have been a problem. As it was that was the only "noise" we encountered. There are several places to eat/drink very close. I would definitely return if I'm in the area again. It is also pet friendly - although that didn't impact us.

Nicely decorated rooms, loved the hardwood floors and nice table. Perfect place to relax and enjoy with benches on the garden and amazing views of the lake from the Raven restaurant. But from 9pm to past midnight, it was extremely noisy b/c of live music playing in the Raven. Reading the reviews I knew it would happen but I did not think the music would be so loud passed 10pm!! It definitely was and I could nothave slept without ear plugs. Not sure i'll be back if it's like that every night.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

This year for full moon party was our second stay at the Islander and we really enjoy this place. The Zanzibar is the only room with a King bed and so we made sure we got it this time. It's far enough off the road to minimize any traffic noise and you can see the Lake from lawn. The raven is a fun party bar/restaurant across the street and we had a blast. Most of the crowd was younger than us but that didn't matter. The rooms are all clean and cute and decorated in island themes. The staff is friendly. I highly recommend this place to anyone who is OK with "not the norm" as it definately marches to the beat of its own drum.

Room Tip: Zanzibar for Jacuzzi and King Bed, distance from road.
