“Roadtrip to Montana”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

We stayed 2 nights at Hibernation House at Whitefish mountain. It is an old-school ski lodge, very comfortable and extremely friendly and accommodating staff. We watched an electrical storm from the hotel porch while visiting with other guests from Florida and Georgia. The morning staff went to extra effort to get our breakfast to go earlier than usual so we could leave for Glacier Park to meet our tour.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

We stayed here for one night and wished we had time to stay more. We had room 104, which was close to the front desk, so had no issues with WiFi that others are talking about. Kids loved being in bunk beds and we didn't miss having A/C. The supplied fan worked fine. Staff was very friendly and the place was very clean.

The breakfast was really good. There were people coming in from other area hotels to eat (maybe their's didn't supply food). We enjoyed playing cards out in the common area at night, rather than sitting in our room.

Yes, it is a bit away from town, but people should check on a hotels location before booking. It was only a 10 min drive into Whitefish to go to shops/dinner/etc. For us, it was awesome being on the actual mountain. It was close to walk to the gondola, which we took up to the top, then took the Danny On trail down the mountain (6.1 km hike).

Lots of mountain bikers in the area, so this is a must hit spot if that interests you.

This hotel is very outdated. Had trouble with Wifi was told you had to go to the lobby to get it very hard to get in room. Way off the beaten path of town. No restaurants around and would have to drive miles away to get downtown. The parking is a ways from the hotel. The staff was very nice and the breakfast was very good.

The people who worked there were really nice. The rooms were basic. But liked the bunk beds and double beds. Breakfast was included with our stay. But it's on the ski lodge area which was further than I wanted. Good value and a simple place to stay over night.

As others have said, this is basically a ski lodge, so it has room for boots and gear. Nothing fancy, but all very functional. Our room had a queen bed and two bunks, so since there were only 2 of us, we had a lot of room. The lounge area was comfortable, although with a full house of people it probably would be too small to enjoy. Wifi didn't work well in rooms. Some staff were friendly, others not so much. Breakfast was good, and the cook clearly wanted us to enjoy it. Location would be great for skiing, but a number of miles from downtown and other attractions.

Nothing fancy, but the help and the included breakfast are good. The unseasonably hot weather made for a very hot sleep given no a/c. If I were to do it again I would have picked a cooler month. But it good deal for zip & stay.

The staff at the hotel are pleasant - not overly friendly or helpful, but that was fine for us. They do serve a full breakfast of basics like eggs, dry cereal, and oatmeal. Make no mistake, however, this is a very bare-bones hotel - more like a youth hostel. It is relatively clean, but the age of the facilities show and it is just pretty unappealing. Our rooms smelled like sweaty socks, which was disgusting! Despite keeping the windows open and fan running on high for the entire duration of our three day stay, we could get rid of the smell. If you are ok with a youth hostel experience and only want a place to crash after a long day outdoors, this might hotel work for you.
