This is my first time staying in Whitefish. We usually stay in Butte to visit family, but my husband wanted to show me 'the greener side' of Montana.
The hotel was clean and spacious. We had a king bed, coffee table, sofa bed, desk with chairs, fridge and coffee maker and a balcony. Our room was overlooking the river and pool. it was very quiet even though it was right next to the elevator. The bed was fine, our fridge was a little finicky it was fine the first night, but by the next night, it seemed to be giving out, our cooler packs weren't as cold. I did find a used coffee filter pouch in the coffee maker-yuck. The pool was very clean and we used it both nights. The hot tub was also very clean as well, I like that both were coated so that you don't brush up against bare concrete or sit on it and ruin your swimsuit. We do wish the pool was open later as it was pretty warm-even at 11pm it would be nice to take a night time swim to cool off. There seem to have been some general upgrades in the room, the bathtub was a one piece and looked to be brand new, and there were a few cracked tiles on the floor. One thing I noticed was that the floor of the tub was higher than the floor of the bathroom, I'm pretty short, so I almost fell when I got out of the shower, I would appreciate a hold bar or something on the wall.
Breakfast is the standard pastries, cereal, fruit, and a bowl of hard boiled eggs. I saw waffles, but then noticed they were the previously frozen type, so that was disappointing-I overheard a guy in the parking lot complaining "there is a difference between a fresh cooked waffle and a frozen waffle, a frozen waffle is not a real waffle", I had to laugh because I agree. We ended up going to town to get breakfast.
Bring your bug spray, if you want to sit on the balcony! The mosquitoes are quite large and loud, but slow, so I was usually able to kill them before they got to me. I could feel them squirm in my hand when I caught them.
We really appreciate that the hotel was pet friendly, but we wish that we could have the option to leave out dogs in a crate (that we brought with us) in the room, they are very well behaved and don't incessantly bark-there are hotels that we stay at that allow us this option, some even have crates they let guests borrow free of charge. It was too hot to leave them in the car during the day so we basically had to wait until 7:30 pm to go out to dinner so we could drive to town, park in the shade and leave them in the vehicle while we went to eat.
The staff was very friendly, we would stay here again the next time we visit Whitefish.
