The staff was not friendly at all, not very welcoming to brown skinned customers. Did not greet us at all. The room stunk. We loved Glacier NP but I will never return to Montana. People in general are very prejudice and it's so very sad!

No elevators and limited parking with extra parking below the hotel grounds at gravel lot across from the lodge. Not good for seniors.

Thank you for letting us know of your opinion.

Wonderful! The only problem is that there is not an elevator and getting your suitcase upstairs is difficult if you’re older. There is a dolly to help but still heavy.

Cozy Lodge within a beautiful, serene area

Pros: We really enjoyed the look of this lodge, and the inviting lobby area. The room we had was also comfortable.
Cons: The cleanliness of the room. As we went to lay down and relax on the bed, we realized there were strands of hair on the bed, as well as the pillows.
Location: The lodge is situated in a beautiful setting, with several things to do for children, nearby. There is the Alpine Slide and the Ariel Adventure Park.
The Kandahar Lodge is a beautiful lodge atop the Whitefish Mountain Resort. Upon entering the lodge in the evening, the smell of burning wood resonated throughout the inviting, and cozy lobby. A room with two beds, was spacious enough for our family of three. The only disappointment we encountered was the thought of whether or not the room was actually cleaned. Our first room looked clean, but we realized there were multiple strands of hair on both beds, as well as pillows. Also, as we went to place our items within the refrigerator, we found three take out boxes with food in them, left behind. It made us wonder whether the bedding and room had actually been cleaned. The front desk staff was very accommodating, and offered us another room. We checked into that room, and there wasn't any hair on the bed, or food left in the refrigerator, but, there was gum smashed onto the trash bag in the bathroom, and the wrapper from the soap bar had been opened. Also, we went to make a pot of hot water, and there was dried up coffee within the pot. It hadn't been washed at all. Throughout our five nights there, we used the glassware, and it really didn't seem to have been washed very well. For the price we paid per night, we expected not only a beautiful place to stay, but a clean one as well. Although this lodge was beautiful and cozy, I don't think we'd stay there again, not knowing wholeheartedly that our room, as well as our bedding, was actually cleaned.

Beautiful area and beautiful hotel.

We stayed for two nights and were so pleased with the accommodations. Everything was very clean and all the staff were very helpful. The lobby was so comfortable--the temperatures had dropped and the fire that was built was so cozy and hard to leave. Loved our stay!

Our hotel had many breath-taking views.

Pros: The location of being up in the mountain and surrounded by breathtaking views.
Cons: Wi-Fi and satellite for watching some news/movies when relaxing in the room.
Location: We enjoyed the lift up to the top of the mountain and hiked down the Danny -On trail. Driving to enjoy the views.
The location is special and the hotel has a rustic feeling. The beds are comfortable and rooms are clean. The atmosphere is friendly and you feel safe too. They have a cozy fireplace inside the lobby for relaxing. Seating outside to take in fresh air and scenery. The satellite and Wi-Fi is not adequate being up so high in the mountain.
