We stayed here while just passing through Polson and regretted it. The room had a great view of the lake, a comfortable bed, and a decent price comparable with other motels in the area. That's the good news........ The rest of what we experienced there was not up to our normal standards for lodging. We try to patronize locally owned... More

WiFi is non existent. Air conditioners are ancient and noisy. Alot of road noise. Beds are very stiff and not comfortable. Carpeting is thin,stained and horrible. Sheets are rough. Good luck sleeping in this place!! Couldn't wait to check out!!!

Our stay at the bayview in polson, was not up to our expectations.. Upon check to our nonsmoking room we were first struck by the smell.. The room smelled like it was previously occupied by a wet dog, who smoked cheap cigars.. The hotel is located on a busy highway across from flathead lake, and is quite noisy. This place... More

We had reservations at another hotel, and wound up backtracking one hour to Bayview. We were the only car execpt a run down jalopy in front. We paid $112.00 and took our luggage to our room. We were afraid to touch anything. During the night, there seemed to be a fight in the room above us. Banging and knocking. This... More

Conveniently located near center of town. Great view of the lake. Room smelled of smoke even though it was supposedly non smoking. Didn't really care for this place, if owner updated it a bit it would be better! Priced accordingly.

The rooms are not perfect but they are roomy enough for 4 adults. The beds are comfortable and everything works. It has a great location on 93. Great view of Flathead Lake and The Mission Mountains. Will always return!

This hotel could be very nice if it was renovated and placed under new management. You do not get what you pay for. Not at all. Let's get down to business: One of the employees, an older lady, was arguing with a guy who looked to be about 23. Apparently this guy had more people in his room than he... More

This is a nice, clean, locally owned hotel with a great view of the bay at a very reasonable price. We booked a room for one night and decided to stay an extra day instead of moving on to something else at twice the price. You need to set your expectations appropriately to fully appreciate the Bayview. If you want... More
