5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

WE have stayed here a number of times and love to come back. The view from the balcony is amazing. The staff are very helpful. Even though it is not air conditioned, we were able to keep it comfortable by opening the windows at night and closing them during the heat of day. It spoiled us for other places.

We stayed in the Glacier lodge in a one bedroom suite. When we walked into the room, we couldn't believe it! There is a full kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. to top it off, every room as a private balcony. The kitchen was great and we enjoyed the room a lot. We spoke a bit to the staff (who...

I've stayed at a Kicking Horse place in the past. It was decent and I figured id come back. Big mistake. The staff were friendly, and the place is out of the way so you can't hear the train that goes through the entire town of Golden, and the view is definitely worth it! That's why I'm giving this place... More

Stayed 3 nights at this ski resort location. The location is gorgeous, quiet and peaceful. The facilities are new, modern and comfortable. Views over the valley are super from the balcony. Only problem with this lodge is that the ventilation is not set up for summer. No a/c or screened window/door. We had to choose between stuffy and buggy. Came... More

We stayed here for one night. The one bedroom suite was clean and well equipped. We had a corner room so it was bright with the additional windows. The patio was big and came with a small bistro set. If your looking for a quiet retreat then this is the resort for you. There was very little going on here.... More

Found this place via Trip Advisor. I concur with other reviewers that the price for this place is on par or even better than the standard off-highway chain motels. I also concur that the Queen room I was provided was the squishiest room I've ever stayed in. Although well appointed, the room was tiny. That said, the bed was comfortable... More

If you have to stay in Golden, stay at a hotel just off the highway, Kicking Horse Mountain is a wash. I was very disappointed for several reasons - we drove 7 hours to get here (our first stop on a BC roadtrip) and we were not told that the resort was basically closed for the season: 1.
