Good local hotel

Hotel is not modern but you can tell there is a real effort to provide clean and comfortable rooms. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast is provided which really adds to the value of the stay. Laundry is available on site which turned out to be a real convenience. Hotel is located near many very good restaurants to the west and is only a 15 minute drive from Kalispell.
