“Wow...couldn't be better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2012

We stayed for two days at the Lodge at Whitefish in Whitefish, Montana. Grounds are well kept. We were welcomed by attentive valets and a huge outdoor fireplace. Check in was quick and the room was beautiful. Loved the lake view from the balcony! Such a large room....bathroom was huge by any hotel standards. Also had small kitchenette, flat screen tv, fireplace with side chairs and a king bed with down comforters. In room Wi-Fi was included. Breakfast in the on-site restaurant was buffet style with the usual elements. But the opportunity to eat on the outside deck made it more special. We didn't take advantage of the pool, but it was available. The lounge/bar was lively and filled with hotel guests having fun. The staff was outstanding catering to our every need (help with car rental, directions, restaurant recommendations, etc.) Great place...gets high marks from me!

Room Tip: Ask for lakeview room.

Lovely resort - we were on a girls weekend and stayed in the Viking Lodge across from the main lodge and actually liked it better because it was so peaceful with a firepit and hot tub right out our back door. - no view of the lake but for us it was perfect. Rooms and bathrooms are huge. Staff was excellent. Food in the boathouse amazing- Staff in the restaurant are snooty but it didn't keep us from having a wonderful meal with a terrific view. Will recommend to my clients as I am a travel agent. Something I did not mention ahead of time, I like being treated as my clients would be. Well done!

Room Tip: If you want to be next to the fire pit and hot tub ask for ground floor facing the reserve

This is a beautiful lodge, lake and town. Our stay was a double in the Viking building next to the nature preserve. It was large with a wonderful fireplace and the bathroom was outstanding in size and amenities. Great workout room, dining on the lake, pool, boat dock, evening entertainment. Well worth the visit this this lodge and town. I'd wait until July to August to fully enjoy the outdoor activities as June the winter snow and rains had the rivers running high and fast to enjoy fly fishing. Lakes were great though.

We booked this trip without knowing what room we were getting and it turned out we were across the street with a view of the road and parking lot. Fortunately an upgrade was available with a fantastic lake view. I'm sure we got the lock off room of a larger unit as there was a connecting door to a room with a balcony. We were in room 331, a corner room with a window facing south and a window facing west. The large room had a king bed a nice gas fireplace, two great chairs and a very nice 42 inch TV. The entry way was a mini kitchenette with a small fridge a microwave and a coffee maker. (Good coffee and REAL half and half.) The large bathroom had a large tub and a separate shower. Nice copper sinks to remind you of Montana's rich mining history. Overall great room with fantastic views. The one negative would be the bed, it wasn't terrible, but with the greatness of this place I thought they should have a pillow top mattress. The sheets are fitted, just make sure they are pulled all the way under the mattress so you don't wake up on the mattress it's self.

Room Tip: Corner rooms ofer the best views, and be sure to get lake view.

If you're in Whitefish you've GOT to stay here! Hands down one of the best places I've stayed! For the same price of a Best Western in town, you can have incrediable views with 5 star service. They've got a coffee shop and bar that over looks the lake. Also, up to date fitness center, spa, and free wifi! You will truly miss out if you come to Whitefish and don't stay here!

By and large, this is a lovely hotel in Whitefish with very well appointed rooms, decor, and atmosphere. We were here off season, that is between winter skiing and summer high season, so it wasn't crowed. I was on a much needed vacation with my spouse and Whitefish is a great place to really get away from it all (there is cell service however for those of you who cannot disconnect without having a heart attack). We stayed in the Viking Lodge which is across the street which is very nice- we had a beautiful room with a fireplace, huge bathroom with soaking tub and separate shower, and microwave and fridge- but lower priced than the main lodge and sort of like the low rent annex of the place. It's connected by a skywalk over the road, which I suppose comes in handy in the middle of winter. Viking Lodge has its own fire pit outside and a hot tub in the back. We noticed cameras everywhere and you have to use your keycard to get in to practically everything, even the hot tub which had a fence around it. Someone must have been hot tub hopping in the middle of the night for them to have to gate it in.

Whitefish is starting to become a destination and with that comes lots of espresso stands, million dollar vacation homes, upscale places like the Lodge at Whitefish Lake, and lots of student, ski bum, and young seasonal workers. This was one reason why I did not give this place 5 stars. From check in to check out we didn't see anyone working there who appeared to be over age 25, other than the fabulous massage therapist I had at the hotel spa. Staff were friendly but it was somewhat run like a summer camp-- when we tried to check in our room was not ready until after 3:00 pm and they didn't have it cleaned from the night before yet. Wonder what went on in there? At the spa one receptionist could not run the computer, and the other (I felt sorry for her) couldn't print anything as she had probably only worked there for a week or so. There seemed to be college aged students, aka friends of employees, roaming everywhere around the hotel. Our room wasn't cleaned until late afternoon. Where was the management?

It was quiet at least where we were, with some road noise from traffic. We did not eat in the restaurant as it was overpriced and overall, I felt the hotel was a little too overpriced for the area. Plus they take a deposit on your room, I've always found that places do that to make themselves appear more hard-to-get-into. The pool was not open when we were there so didn't try that. I did have a very good massage at the Spa. The hotel has live music certain nights of the week in the bar area. Whitefish has a lot of good and cheap restaurants, tons of pizza places, neat bars, and its proximity to Glacier National Park-- a marvel of nature-- makes the town worth a visit.

Would I recommend the Lodge at Whitefish Lake to friends? Yes, especially if they want to feel pampered with valet parking and the like, and feel they're being catered to. Would I stay here again? Maybe if I got a bargain basement summer camp room rate.

Room Tip: Get one facing the lake if you want to dish out the dough for that. In the viking lodge get one tha...
