We visited just for one night on a family roadtrip during summer. We were excited to have a loft room BUT this means third floor and we were surprised to learn there is no elevator. The room was great, clean, well supplied, and we enjoyed the hot tub and steam room. The breakfast options in the morning were appreciated.

Fabulous Stay!

Rustic lodge with plush linens, luxury bathroom amenities, and very comfy beds and a great area to sit outside to enjoy a cocktail and/or your dinner. The bartender (I forget his name; born in Laguna Beach) was so personable and a pleasure to engage in conversation. Pleasant front desk staff and great breakfast options each morning that is included in your rate. About a 12-15 drive from the town site of Whitefish but worth it. Very scenic drive and away from the crowds. Hotel is conveniently located at a chair lift and gondola that takes you up the mountain for incredible views!

Severely overpriced

We were much disturbed by people in neighboring rooms and above us. This hotel is built like a cheap motel without noise insulation between rooms or floors. For a hotel in this price class you expect something better. We could also feel the building shaking when somebody walked briskly along the corridor. The layout of the hotel is very poor, with no views from the rooms. Many of the rooms face each other in an internal yard, which has the effect to amplify the noise from air conditioners, which make sit very unpleasant to open the window. The kitchenette was very poorly equipped.

Better winter getaway?

We spent a night at the Kandahar with our family in the summer. The decor is nice and rustic (I would recommend they get rid of the faux flowers to enhance the rustic aesthetic). Reviews said it was family friendly but I didn’t feel that way. There were no kids activities, books or games in the common area that I could find. The website said the restaurant was closed on Tuesday’s so we ate dinner before we arrived but when we checked in the restaurant was open. I found that odd. I did enjoy the steam room and a soak in the spa. Maybe it would be better for us to stay in the winter with more families staying there to ski.

Good Place to Stay!

We stayed at the Kandahar Lodge for the first time in July 2019. It is a mountain lodge that is very clean and comfortable. We used it as a base to visit places in the area including Glacier National Park. It worked great for that! The town of Whitefish is just a few minutes down the mountain and has a great selection of restaurants and other things. There is a place to eat in the lodge, but we did not try it. If staying there, going to the top of Big Mountain on the lift or by walking is worth it. We plan on coming back.
