Our room was just above a bar... It was really noisy (like if we were in the bar!). If you want to rest between hikes in a hotel, DON'T GO THERE ! We wanted to sleep early to do a long and difficult hike and we were so tired in the morning that we cancelled it. We tried to change... More

We booked this place by mistake and have big regrets doing so. No air conditioning. It was cool outside but there was no way of getting the cool air into the rooms. A band played until late into the night and made sleeping impossible. This is an awful hotel.

My husband and I decided to stay here while passing through from Vancouver to Jasper. The price was right so we gave it a chance. Room's were decent and clean, but we were in room130. The fella who checked us in didn't give us the wifi password, and we needed this in order to plan the rest of our trip.... More

Arrived at the Chieftain for a 2 night stay and was warmly greated. Length of check in was no different to that experienced at worldwide chains but the friendly helpful service was far better. Our room was small but adequate and was exceptionally clean and the four poster bed was so comfortable, the swan/heart towel display on the bed when... More

Normally, my wife wouldn't go for a $60 hotel but it was at the tail end of a costly trip. Fortunately, the desk clerk made a very good impression when we checked in. The only real downside was that the room was hot from the sun. We opened the window, turned the floor fan on, threw all the blankets off... More

We spent two nights at the chieftain and were surprised to find that the rooms look absolutely nothing like the pictures on their website. The "double" beds were more like twin size, we could barely stand in the tiny shower, there stains and cigarette burns in the blankets, and there was no screen on the window which not only opened...

We drove through Squamish on our way from Whistler to Vancouver Island in late May and needed a place to sleep. The front desk at the Chieftain hotel was very helpful when asking for availability so we decided to spend the night here. Big mistake! The check-in that usually takes no more than ten minutes, took 35 here. They were... More

First of all, don't be fooled by the pictures of this hotel that are visible on travel sites. I took my own pictures, and I promise they don't match up. From the hole in our wall to the cigarette burn in my blanket and the wooden slabs which held up the slightly-larger-than-twin beds, I was ridiculously thankful when my cell... More

The Chieftain is very different to most hotels we stayed at on our 4 week road trip. We had passed through Squamish on previous visits to the area, but never stayed, we knew the Chieftain from the TV series "Men in Trees". Do not be put off by the appearance of the large old building. It houses a Hotel, Pub,... More

I would recommend this hotel not just for the price but for the cleanliness of the rooms and the very pleasant helpful service. All rooms have recently been remodelled and updated. Decor is tasteful. Had a great sleep in a VERY comfortable bed.
