Rented a queen size bedroom. Turned out to be a lock-off, from a larger room. These types of rooms are very noisy. It would be nice to know this when you reserve so you can choose to continue. Our neighbours were so loud, it seemed that they were in our room. This lasted until 11:00 PM and started again at... More

CONS: Towels feel like sandpaper, shower curtain is half white/half yellow with a film on it, the tub doesn't drain during a shower, stains all over the carpet, no AC, box TV, pet fees are not communicated well on the website, food options are very limited and you will likely have to drive into town. PROS: Hotel has great potential... More

The location of our room was excellent and we also found that all the amenities in the kitchen were in place which helped us to have comfortable stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful.The only issue we had was with the mosquitos which did not allow us to keep the window open.

The setting in the mountains is nice but that's about it. We stayed on a Monday night in August. For shelling out $220 we got a tiny room with no table or chairs, a lumpy hard mattress, no air conditioning, only an old, noisy floor fan that did't oscillate, no screen on the door, an old, 20-inch CRT (heavy picture...

We made a last-minute decision to drive from Edmonton to the BC lower mainland via the Icefields Parkway. Hotels in the town of Golden were sold out, but we were able to get a booking at a ski lodge 15 minutes drove from the town. For skiing, it would be great. The gondola and ski lift are literally at the... More

We stayed here this summer. After reading other reviews, we knew that the beds were being replaced and so are the TVs (I don't know why people are surprised by them when the reviews have responses!). Anyways, our bed wasn't bad at all, and I slept fine. I LOVED the view and loved that my room had a full kitchen... More

We read the reviews and decided to stay anyway. Big mistake. The kids were quite amused by the 1990s tube 19" tv. We stayed in a suite that is supposed to sleep 6. The single tv was tough since we don't all need to watch cartoons. The beds were terrible. About one step above an air mattress. The carpets were... More

All was good accept the first floor room on the ski hill side felt like it was in a hole. We tried to switch but the hotel was fully booked. The view to the east is amazing. I wish we would have had one of those rooms. It is 14 k's from town. It is much more convienant to eat... More

They get you up on the mountain away from everything and can't even bother to keep a restaurant or a pub open past 10 PM. The staff seemed confused that we would want to eat at this late hour and suggested that maybe Boston Pizza would deliver ( yeah right, it's 14 KM up the mountain ) What a joke,... More
