Way, way, way overpriced. I knew what I was paying ahead of time, but I expected more. About $1400 a night for a standard room with a view of the lake- windows, no balcony. It’s really shocking, I booked it because I couldn’t find anything else in the area other than chains and very small B&Bs. Again, I knew the price before I arrived and that’s on me. But I cannot recommend the Lodge because of the poor value.

Upon arrival to the room, we found the floors quite dirty. A nice big ball of someone’s hair was right in the middle of the floor. Our headboard was broken and nails showing. We paid $639 a night and I expected much more!! I complained to the front desk and they at first offered to move us and then said there was nothing else available. I had to ask for a free breakfast at least or something. Their customer service and management seems to be lacking.

BEWARE OF LODGE AT WHITEFISH
After a week of hiking in Glacier, my wife and I decided to splurge on a room at the Lodge. Rooms were not available at the hotel's website but were available on TripAdvisor, for $675 a night. That $675, however, did not get us a room in the Lodge. Instead, we got a room in the "Viking Lodge" across the street, which in appearance is equivalent to a really nice Best Western. Don't expect help with your suitcases, or with anything for that matter, while staying in the Viking Lodge. We never saw any hotel staff in the VL. It was a little creepy. When we arrived, our room was freezing cold. We took the AC down a notch, and within minutes it was stifling. After a half hour trying to adjust the thermostat, we discovered that the problem was the room's fireplace, which even when turned, off had a glass cover that was hot to the touch. The fireplace and the air conditioner were fighting against each other, which made it impossible to get the room temperature in a comfortable range. We had a pretty miserable night, getting up every couple of hours to either turn up the thermostat because the room was frigid or turn it down because it was boiling. The energy use of this place--and its greenhouse gas footprint--must be out of control. I'll also post the view out our window--it's the photo with the tarps and sandbags covering what what must be a leaky roof. To add insult to injury, we were charged a $100 resort fee that I I failed to notice when signing up on TripAdvisor. (You should not make this same mistake!) The one good thing I will say about the hotel was the staff, to a person, was friendly and helpful. But that hardly made up for the overall miserable, and expensive, experience.

Our Daughter had her wedding reception at the lodge in April. Waonderful experience! Our family came in From Ohio and Illinois and stayed here! Couldn't have been happier! The rooms were great, the venue was perfect, the food was amazing and what a wonderful view! Highly recommend! Andrea our wedding planner helped with all the arrangements and was awesome! Our guests got to ski a couple of days, loved the nearby town and restaurants! Couldn't have asked for a more perfect spot for her wedding!

It’s a really nice place to stay overall, me and my family rented a condo on our vacation, and my parents bedroom ended up having an open window to the rest of the house, and us kids like to watch tv when we wake up in the morning which is pretty annoying to my parents. Though, I think that was just our room. Also, the outlets are kind of weird in the condo we stayed in. You would plug in you phone, ipad, tablet or whatever and it would like sorta hang out of the outlets, it would still charge, but would easily fall out.
This is a great place to take kids because they have a nice pool, and a lake to swim in.
Next to the pool there is a Tiki Bar and grill, and you can order from there, and i was told many times there was a “misunderstanding” and my food would be out in just a minute. The tiki bar and grill has nice staff, but the food takes a long time.
There is a nice restaurant on the hotel rooms, which has pretty good food.
It’s a great place for a relaxing vacation, just be aware some of these things might happen.
