When you pull up to this hotel, it is impressive with a rustic charm. It is located close to downtown, but you'll have to walk about 4 blocks to get to restaurants. This hotel has no bar, restaurant or room service. It is in front of a small mall with a small casino. It does have a full breakfast buffet....

Thank you for staying with Red Lion. The location in downtown Kalispell is within 2 blocks of several restaurants, full bars and local shopping to choose from. A great variety when staying multiple nights at the property. The Red Lion gets many comments regarding the breakfast and a great way to start the morning. I hope you have fond memories...

What a great experience right from the start! Checkin staff lovely and very helpful. Happy to let us leave our motorcycles under the front entrance where they were safer and under cover.

Right near the historic part of Kallispell and within walking distance of shops and restaurants. If you enjoy Starbucks, it's right next door. Very well run and nice hotel with a breakfast included. About 30 minutes from West Glacier and Whitefish. Well stocked with travel information on things to do here. Front desk staff helpful and friendly!

I am glad to hear the staff was very helpful and friendly while on your vacation trip to Glacier National Park. Our location is the best around; great selection of restaurants, local shopping, walking/biking paths, etc. Even Starbucks for your morning latte. Treasure those fond memories of our area, it's a beautiful place.

We were on a family road trip to Glacier National Park and Kalispell was a perfect place to spend the night before enter the park. The Red Lion service was great. The rooms were a bit dated but clean and comfortable. We found the hotel's location was just blocks from a great restaurant and market.

First of all the guy at the front desk was made to do this work. His name escapes me but it was one of the Popular J names. His service was above and beyond.

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.
