Absolutely awful. We came in the summer with minimal expectations. There is no AC. There is no fan. There is no door or window with a screen. There ARE lots of hot incandescent bulbs. Our room was easily 30 degrees or more. This place should literally be shut down for this abuse.

Arrived at 3 pm for my room on a Tuesday afternoon and had to wait over two hours till my room was ready. After being told every twenty minutes it would be ready in 20 minutes. That happened about 4 times. They apologized but didn't seem very apologetic cause nothing was done about it. We continued to wait.

Stayed here for a couple of nights while on our way to Calgary. The suite was well appointed with all conveniences ( fridge, stove, micro, dishwasher,) and of a reasonable size with a nice balcony overlooking the valley. This is primarily a winter ski resort, and while it is open in the summer months it was not particularly busy; accordingly... More

Overall this was a great hotel, we stayed in Glacier for three nights. The restaurants were very good with great service! The only negatives were our room wasn't ready but we were well compensated with a discount and fans were available but it was a little warm in the rooms to sleep. The rooms are modern and clean with in... More

This property does not have airconditioning which is extremely uncomfortable once summer temperatures increase. We just came back from a 2 night getaway to the Golden area. During our stay summer temps reached 30+ Celsius (90+ Fahrenheit) which is quite normal in summer in this part of Canada. After a long drive we were looking forward to check in and... More

I live in Vancouver and have never been to the Rockies or Columbia Valley before, I was blown away!

Beautiful and well-kept suites, complete with laundry, full kitchen, balcony and fireplace. Sweeping views of valley, located at base of ski-hill. There is a great restaurant & coffee shop on site, as well as a convenience store and childcare. Exceptional service from the front desk, housekeeping (condo was spotless!) and the restaurant staff. The food was fantastic and the staff... More

This is an excellent location for your vacation in Kicking Horse/Golden. We love that the Glacier Mountain Lodge is pet friendly. The specially allocated 1 bed condo is a perfect fit for 2 adults and 2 furry kids and was spotlessly clean.
