I ended up here and the room was in need of serious maintenance and updates. All the furniture is weary.....the laminate surfaces are wearing off, and the drawer fronts are detached on a couple of drawers. There was water damage over the shower. The hotel room had a microwave and refrigerator. The bedspread had in black magic marker the hotel...

the reviewer said main use of motel is to provide sleep and shower, which according to review we did provide that,plus a spectacular view. yes laminate is older, but our prices reflect that. new furniture in resort doubles the rate. reviewer decided to have more reasonnable rate instead of paying more. room was clean, staff accomodating,breakfast food provided cereal, pastries,...

We made reservations 3 months ago for 2 rooms and then verified 2 weeks ago. When we arrived they had sold our second room to someone else. We had to pay double the $$ to put the other family at a motel down the street. When we got that taken care of we checked into our room at the Bayview....

We only had one reservation for this person, did not sell 'other' as stated. She got a room for the coach at another motel, so there were other rooms available in town, but for more money. She had no complaints on her room, until she was leaving, asked for her money back because the coach had to pay more somewhere...

We were just looking for a place to spend the night and stopped here to inquire. Older inn but clean and reasonable rates. the view of the Flathead Lake from the room is awesome especially at night. They have benches outside of each unit so you can just sit outside and enjoy the lake view. The next morning in the...

We happened upon the Bayview Inn while looking for a place to stop for the night before heading up to Glacier. We found that it met our needs just fine. It is an older hotel that could use some redecorating, but it was clean and had comfortable beds. We enjoyed the view of Flathead Lake while eating the continental breakfast...

This is my first trip to Polson. I came to kayak and just do some sightseeing. I got into town somewhat late and was looking for a place to stay. I stopped here at the Bayview Inn to inquire about a room, luckily there was a vacancy and I stayed the night. I enjoyed the stay and in the morning...

The staff is very nice, but that's just not enough for a hotel. Sheets were very old and stained. Carpet felt like it hadn't been cleaned in a long time. AC barely worked. Fan in bathroom was loud. Curtains didn't work and strings hanging from top. Smelled funky. Continental breakfast was almost hilarious Little Debbie? Wow, that's a new low....

At first I was a bit worried as it seemed a little run down and in need of attention. However I was happily surprised to find this place turned out to be quite adequate, actually good+. The people working here were very nice, and the view was fabulous.It is right across the road from Lake Flathead. My only real complaint...

Not a luxury place, but clean . Workers are very friendly Right across the street from the lake, with great views of lake and mountains. We sat outside every evening and enjoyed the view. Can't beat the price. Would happily stay there again.
