It was great visiting with you while in Montana. I hope your "fishing guide" took you to some spectacular "honey holes" in our area. You took the motto -- quit wishin', go fishin' --- to it's peak. Thank you for the great review and mentioning our signature breakfast. Visit again soon !!

We decided to visit Glacier National Park at the last minute and the closet place with a vacancy was the Kalispell Red Lion. Great service, comfy beds, clean and a pretty good breakfast was included. The hotel is attched to the mall and a grocery store across the street. Everything you need right there. The young man at the front...

I like the spontaneity of a last minute visit to Glacier National Park. Thank you for staying with us, I am glad we exceeded your expectations of your stay. If you didn't get enough of Glacier, September is a beautiful month to visit again for a road trip with less people.

We were in town for the Event at Rebecca Farm and decided to stay at this hotel this year. We weren't disappointed. The room was clean and the reception staff was very friendly. The hotel is centrally located and next to some pretty neat spots.

My sister and I had a very poor experience at this hotel at the end of June. On the first night there was a fire alarm at 3am apparently caused by a guest burning microwave popcorn. The following day we did not receive any explanation or apology from management. If you enjoy breakfast served on prison style black plastic picnicware...

The Red Lion is centrally located, convenient to downtown and attached to a mall. The rooms are large and clean. The beds are very comfortable. The pool and hot tub are great. The staff is helpful and friendly. The motel is well maintained. Great place to stay!

We decided to spend a weekend in Kalispell. Not familiar with the area, we checked Trip Advisor and chose the Red Lion Inn. Good choice! A bit pricey, but comfortable with clean accommodations. The best aspect was the breakfast buffet- complete with an awesome, omelet bar. We would stay there again :)

We stayed at this hotel last week and it was very nice. We used the airport shuttle going to and coming back from the airport and it was very prompt and professional. The staff were all so helpful and accomodating. The free breakfast was also very good. the hotel is attached to the downtown mall which is also convenient.

Room was very clean and comfortable but noise outside the room was noticeable. The room key machine was not working so could only give one room key to our family. Free hot breakfast was fantastic with bacon, sausage, eggs, hash browns and omelet bar.
