Frequently visit Golden and this is my favourite place so far. Not very fancy...but friendly people, very quiet, outside room access, fairly clean rooms & grounds, fun waterside & excellent value for the money.

We stayed at the trave lodge in Golden because it is a good stopping point on our long trip to and from Calgary. The rooms were a good size and clean. There was a hot tub, pool and sauna and they served a complimentary breakfast. All in all pretty good bang for your buck. I'd recommend it.

Clean. In desperate need of updating. Carpets, bedding were worn. Bed, pillows older. Old vanities, etc. Price was a little high for how old and outdated everything was. It reminded me or somewhere I would stay in my early 20's - during my party days, not in my 40's. Staff was okay. Polite. Not very chatty - all business. I... More

We stayed at the hotel with another couple. Rooms were a little small to have 4 people staying in them, but we made it work. Continental breakfast was a little on the sparse side. Get there by 8 am if you don't want to wait an hour for breakfast. Pool was a little dated, but decent. You have to walk... More

We stayed here the post-Christmas weekend while skiing in Lake Louise as the rate was exponentially better than anything in Banff or Canmore and it was about the same driving distance. Check-in was efficient and the staff was pleasant. Room itself was not the cleanest budget property I've ever stayed in, but there was nothing overtly gross or anything. It... More

THANK YOU for your feedback. We are most definitely a family friendly hotel. Families love the POOL and WATERSLIDE. We are so happy to have hosted you over the holidays. Our pool facility is so popular it definitely sees a huge amount of traffic. Our cleaning staff clean it everyday through the night when the facility is closed. We always... More

Chose this place after the Holiday Inn called me to say they cancelled my booking, due to a flood. This hotel needs a little bit of TLC, but the rooms were clean, hot tub was steaming, sauna was hot, the customer service was great and can't beat the price point. We were here on a ski vacation for 3 days... More

Room at the front of this motel. Modest but nice. Lots of hot water, firm mattress and average sized room. Quite comfortable and no road noise. Very pleasant front office staff and more than adequate continental breakfast. Would stay again.

We stopped at this hotel after a 10 hour drive as a stop over. We thought we would "cheap out" as we needed a place to crash for the night. I will start by saying that the front staff were very friendly, this being the only positive. Our room was awful. It smelled of stale smoke covered with carpet deodorizer,... More
