“Great room but not cheap”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

I liked the location but I will say it is hard to find and your GPS will have issues. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IT LOOK BEHIND PIZZA HUT!!!!!!!!!

One thing I will say is staying here isn't cheap. Also, I am a little miffed that while checking in the clerk made a rude remark about us getting a cheaper rate on expedia. I was really tired from driving or I would have told him how I felt about his opinion.

this was an average motel with a very expensive price. we wanted to stay near downtown whitefish but settled for this motel when nothing else was available. this room was adequate and breakfast was okay, except the eggs were cold and rubbery. for the price we paid, we should have had real eggs to order, bacon, toast, hash browns and jelly plus chocolate mints on the pillows.

Room Tip: rooms on the back of motel are quieter, except for the people that leave their dogs locked in their...

Clean room, comfortable bed, looked updated. Wi-fi very spotty. All of the plug ins were so loose we couldn't charge anything. Bathroom Amenities bad. No Kleenex stocked. Good for a quick overnight, but over priced.

We really like Whitefish but had a terrible time finding this place because the sign was so small. We drove around and around trying to find this motel. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. One of the things that impressed us was both a hallway door and a door to the outside in the room. Could sit outside for a drink. Breakfast was good. I recommend visiting Whitefish but accommodation is overpriced.

Not much to say about Big Mountain. Kind of dated. We stayed 2 nights and the location is pretty good. About 30 minutes to Glacier National. Our A/C worked great, appeared to be a new unit. Bed was pretty worn. Breakfast was your run of the mill but satisfactory. Price was within about $10.00 of much nicer hotels in Missoula Mt. The desk help was not overly friendly but Ok. Didn't use the pool or hot tubs.

Stayed July 26th. I think it was the last room in town. Made a mistake and didn't make a reservation considering it was a Friday night. The whole motel was very comfortable and very clean. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Yes, it is dated but I have seen outdated and this was definitely a very nice motel. Nice quiet area with very little traffic noise. Breakfast was good. The pool looked great. I would definitely stay here again.

When we booked this hotel we had mixed feelings, especially after we read some of the reviews for it. We stayed here two nights while going to Glacier National Park, and we never found anything wrong with our stay. Check-in was quick, our queen suite was clean, maybe a little outdated but big deal. Staff was nice and the breakfast had a good selection. So maybe the place has some downs, (we never noticed), but some people are impossible to satisfy as I have read. Like not being able to put your bike under the entrance, BIG DEAL!! We liked it so that's why I gave this place a five.
