Red Lion Hotel Kalispell

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Staff was friendly and room was clean and comfortable. Amenities were good except no coffee pot.

The Red Lion is in the BEST location in Kalispell BUT it needs to be updated No coffee maker in the room's THE staff deserves a better HOTEL.

We prepaid 3 rooms. When we arrived hallway to rooms very dirty, Room smelled of smoke. Other two rooms garbage in garbage cans and looked like animal hair. We immediately check back out of motel and am willing to dispute Orbitz and Hotel if money in not refunded promptly. We left without disturbing the rooms in anyway. I don usually write reviews but this would be a 1 or 2. Cant believe a 4. Went to Hampton very nice and well maintained.

Great hotel to spend 4 or 5 days. The mattress is good. Breakfast is wonderful. The hotel is a little far from Glacier National Park. I recommend this hotel

Super friendly staff, comfortable clean rooms. Perfect centralized location in Kalispell. The water is a little soft and the wifi isn't the greatest but would definitely stay again on my next trip.

Arrived late, had the shuttle waiting for us! Complimentary upgrade. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was super friendly!

Great location for visiting Glacier Park as long as you don't mind about an hour drive to the park which wasn't an an issue for us. We were surprised though that a Red Lion wouldn't have a working computer available for guests. We don't have a smart phone and were depending on the hotel's computer access to check email and do further trip planning. The staff said the guest computer hasn't worked for weeks. We decided to take advantage of the outdoor hot tub but couldn't figure out how to get the bubbles going. The maintence man walked by and told us that the pump was broken and they had been waiting for quite a while for the replacement unit. I would think Red Lion would be more able to correct these front line issues in a more timely matter.

The hotel was clean, the rooms were spacious and the service was excellent. the only downfall was they were having problems with their pool facilities.

Pleasantly surprised by this hotel! Very nice and close to some amazing eats and beautiful scenery

Shuttle from airport was available when my flight landed after midnight. Everyone was kind and courteous and room was clean and welcoming.

Nice staff and very clean place. The beds are super comfortable! Cardio machines are top notch.

Overnight stay was ok, We left early, didn't have a chance to try their breakfast

Always a great dependable place to stay when in Kalispell. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. But, if I were to be objective, I'd have to admit that it's showing it's age a bit. A little remodeling would do wonders. But the amenities help you look past that. From the indoor swimming pool to the nice cook making your free omelets in the morning and the cleanliness throughout the facility it's not that important to have every thing shinny new...:)

The hotel was perfect for our one night getaway. The location is ubeatable. It's connected to a mall, steps away from the main area of Kalispell and easy to find. In a pretty garden atruim,they serve a full continental breakfast with waffles and an omelette station. There is also a fire pit which is kept going at night. I also enjoyed their body soaps. The only odd thing was their pool was mis colored and smelled strange.

The room was clean and the price was right.The staff was polite and courteous. Great room for the price.

good location and nice hotel for the price. would stay here again.

very nice, pet friendly, awesome breakfast, would stay there again and again.

This was just like staying at a Holiday Inn or similar. The bed was acceptable at best, and room was laid out pretty typically. Not tons of extra room or anything spectacular/dreadful about it. The exercise room existed, but didn't offer much. It had dumbbells, a couple treadmills and a cycle; end of story. The breakfast offered a fairly typical spread with the addition of made-to-order omelets and you could make yourself a Belgium waffle. No complaints for the price, but I wouldn't call it a 4-star hotel either.

Very convenient location and being attached to a mall was a bonus for shopping and coffee. The breakfast was hot and very good and the personal touch of having a fresh omelet cooked while you waited made it better than most. There is a courtyard in the center with a water feature and a nice fire burning every evening for a romantic 'outdoors' touch. Noisy kids in the room next to ours but that was not the hotels fault...likely hyper or no parental control. Would highly recommend this hotel for those passing through or going to Kalispell for a few days of relaxation and shopping. You are walking distance to the entire downtown and the variety of shops, restaurants and specialty stores. Have been to Kalispell on many occasions and this was our most enjoyable trip.......thanks Red Lion.

Great location, nice staff, very clean room, and exceptional breakfast. For this small town, best value possible.
