We stayed for 5 nights with our 2 teenage boys. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The property is clean and safe. It's a 10 minute walk to a lovely downtown, so the location is great. They offer free airport shuttle and also a free van to/from the ski mountain. There is limited space on the ski van, but it filled up only once on our visit, so we just hopped on the free S.N.O.W bus that picks up and drops off right outside the hotel. It is VERY convenient for ski transportation and allowed my kids to leave the mountain early and head back to the hotel on their own schedule. They have a room to store skiis and even have ski boot dryers. There is also a nice game room in the basement (great for teens), indoor/outdoor pool and outdoor hot tub. And free laundry, which I didn't realize until we arrived or I would have packed less. Breakfast is currently a bag that includes a granola bar, muffin, oatmeal, banana and fruit cup; plenty to fill you up. I would definitely recommend this place and stay here again if we come to town again.

Comfortable and affordable
We stayed here a total of 4 nights. We originally booked 3 nights and ended up coming back for another night at the end of our vacation we were so pleased with the Pine Lodge. Great location with access to the river walk, lots of amenities available and outdoor activities (which we didn’t take advantage of since it was raining/snowing). Couple minute drive to any restaurants downtown. Half hour drive to Glacier Natl Park / Flathead Natl Forest. Definitely recommend. Staff was kind and helpful

Close to town and a good value
It's not the fanciest place to stay, but it certainly met our needs. Our room was overlooking the river and the balcony was good sized. They offer you a to-go style breakfast right now during Covid but it was tasty enough with a decent selection. The room was standard but clean. It could have used a table and a couple chairs on the interior just for another sitting area but overall it was a good place to stay and very close to downtown Whitefish. There is a walking path right behind the hotel too which is nice and peaceful.

Great Hotel in Whitefish
The hotel was so clean, the front desk associates were so nice and friendly. Complimentary kayaks to use on the river right outside as well as bikes to use on the trails the city. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Worthy of 10 stars!
We just returned from a 4-night stay at Pine Lodge and didn't want to leave! We travel frequently and this is easily one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. Sooo much value here!
To start, the amenities go above and beyond. There are complimentary bikes, kayaks, and SUPs you can take out as long as you like. We took bikes several times, and the hotel is located directly on the Whitefish bike path with easy access to the lake. We even saw deer on the path! There are also free s'mores kits for the fire pits (a really nice thoughtful touch), and LOADED grab & go bags for breakfast/snacks. There seems to be some thought given to the fact that most people in Whitefish are heading out for active days, as offerings include fresh fruit, protein bars, peanut butter, and more. Toiletries are really nice Bath & Body Works Stress Relief items, again a thoughtful touch. Although we didn't need it, there are two free airport shuttles as well.
Next, in the midst of the pandemic, this place is sparkling clean and has gone to great lengths to keep guests and staff safe. Instead of breakfast and coffee being left out, the reception staff keeps it behind the desk and you simply request what you want. They're doing away with daily housekeeping, but you can ask for anything you need. We also witnessed multiple employees sanitizing common areas.
You also cannot beat the location! Downtown is a 7-8 minute walk, the lake was about a 12 minute bike ride, Safeway and a very well-stocked Town Pump are just next door for groceries and gas, the airport is less than 15 minutes away, and Glacier NP is only about 30 minutes.
Finally, staff is incredible - Lukas especially. Warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. In a time when many hourly employees do the bare minimum, this was a welcome surprise. We will absolutely be back!
