Our hotel ratings and reviews are from real hotel guests.

In the post-stay surveys, priceline.com hotel customers are asked a number of questions about their stay and the hotel. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best, the survey asks guests to rate their overall experience and specifically rate the hotel's cleanliness, staff and location. Priceline.com does not allow site visitors to post unsolicited hotel reviews.

It was quiet and overlooked the lake
In today's world for the price we expected a continental breakfast.

It did offer us some pleasant laughs. The antique trough for a sink to be specific.

Location great, unique room decoration refreshing, check in somewaht cumbersome I question how it would work for late checkin, parking limited,
Advertised whirlpool was out of order but we were not informed and did not discover it until late in the evening too late to change room. Hotel Management apparently knew about this fault but did not inform us at check in.

When we complained about out of order whirlpool tub management told a part was on order to fix tub but it could still be used for a soaking of bath. Management also suggested we could check other hotels in the area which at 11 pm was not reasonable, later in the evening the management offered to move us to another room the hotel finally offered a 20% discount on the high end room rate. ...read more

Extremely small television, no channels to speak of. All I wanted was to kick back, have a beer and enjoy a ballgame. Instead I had 27 shopping channels to choose from!

Quiet, beautiful view from porch of lake

I was there before season and never saw another guest or hotel staff. But check in was fine as my key was in an envelope. Room was made up and great decor in Safari room

Location! Cleanliness and quiet!
The office door was locked much of the time both during the day and at night. It was located upstairs where the restaurant and bar were located but seemed to not be open most of the time I was there. Perhaps because there were not many of us staying the

Old but well kept and clean and great location being on bay and only a half block from downtown Big Fork.

This is a really neat hotel! We are glad we stumbled upon it. Very unique old building, each room is decorated to suit a different theme. Nice view of the bay from our room and wonderful service. We enjoyed our stay! Loved our balcony too.
No shower curtain in the bathroom but it wasn¿t the end of the world. Bathroom had a curtain in place of a door, so not the most private.

Overall a very unique & interesting hotel. A nice change from the standard boring hotel rooms. Would definitely recommend it & we plan to stay there again.

The room went beyond my expectations. It was exquisitely decorated with great care and talent. One of the nicest room I have ever been in and I've traveled the world.
When I arrived no one was there to greet me. I had to wait a half hour after a phone call that I made from a number on the door. The room and courtesy after being given our room was over the top.

The room was spotless, the furniture and detail beyond your imagination. The décor in each room was rich in time and care.

Friendly staff and a great room.
A pool would be nice, but not necessary at this location.

Great room and hotel, centrally located and fit all of my needs on this specific trip.

The room was pretty.
Inconvenient location - poor air conditioner - poor water pressure in the shower.

We arrived at 2 in the afternoon and the room had not been cleaned and we were not offered another one, as we were told the night before that we would. We had to leave and come back over an hour later to be able to enter the room. The location was not in downtown big fork, but a mile away behind an antique store and facing a gravel pit and barn. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. ...read more

At first I was a little concerned about the negative online reviews from various sites. But these negative reviews were from many years ago and looked like it all came from the same group. When I arrived to a nice surprise, the owner of the hotel was very kind and accommodating. To be clear, know that you are staying in themed rooms, know that you are in Big Fork, and know that people working at this hotel are sweet common folks from the area and haven¿t gone through an extensive Ritz Carlton training. So if you have an open and adventurous mind, this hotel can be a super fun. Overall, my experience was complete opposite of the previous negative reviews and I would recommend this hotel and stay here again in the future. ...read more
