I have stayed in quite a few Econlodges over the years, this one was so far the best of them. My room was clean and in good repair. The WiFi was excellent, the water temperature consistent, the bed very comfy, and I enjoy a room with blackout drapes which it has.
I was greeted upon my arrival by Dave, the manager, who was exceptionally friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the area. The next day when I went down for coffee there was another woman at the desk, she said that she was new, but she was excellent, warm and gregarious, obviously experienced in customer service although new to the property. The time changed to daylight savings time, and when I arrived for breakfast I was 10 or 15 minutes late instead of 50 or 45 minutes early. The front desk woman went into the fridge and offered me the breakfast items. That was above and beyond, and so much more helpful than the budget Econlodges that I am used to.
All of the housekeeping staff greet you as you walk by, as do maintenance.
I wasn't planning on staying in the room much, there is lots to do in Kalispel, I needed a comfortable inexpensive place to stay that had smoking rooms and this was it. It is easy to get everywhere around Kalispel and area from there. I see that someone else's review said that they paid $100 per night, that must have been in high season. I booked through choicehotels.com and got the room for close to $40 per night.
It was off-season for the hot tubs, so they were closed.
I would, and probably will, stay there again.
