We've stayed here numerous times over the last 15 years. There are hotel rooms and different sized condo units. We've stayed pretty much in all of the units and have never had any issues. The location is on the ski/mountain bike hill. The facility is always kept clean and up to date. Great indoor pool and 2 outdoor spas. There... More

My family and I stayed at this hotel on the labour day long weekend (Aug29-Sept 1). We booked a two bedroom suite. Overall the room was good (4/5), had 2 large bedrooms, full kitchen, living room and dining area. However there were a couple of downsides: 1. The Air conditioner was extremely loud 2. The bathtub drain plug was broken.... More

We agree that our location is by far the... More

Spent the weekend at this hotel. Room was small and dated but it was clean and had everything we needed and then some. Lots of pillows and towels provided, small fridge and microwave and even a safe. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Pool and hot tubs need more attention (murky and gross) and our hallway was loud... More

The Griz Inn has an awesome location for ski in/ ski out. You are in the centre of all the activity in the resort and it is an easy walk to get around. The rooms are somewhat dated as the Griz Inn is one of the earliest accommodations in Fernie. We were quite happy with our room on the second... More

Please- phone hotel directly, do not call through central reservations. This has never been an issue before, but on site desk staff are not able to help you with your suite ( ie extra towels, toilet paper, instances of maintenance issues). Central reservations are not on site, and I personally feel more secure with having immediate help if I need... More

Showed up last minute and were provided keys to two rooms for a quick check of each. Selected the smaller room as we were just staying one night. As another reviewer has stated, the inn is for the value conscious but is well located and quiet. Major plus is the awesome staff, especially reception. Gave us options for restaurants, were... More

booked late, everywhere was full, ended up in a "regular" room. It was grungy, I wouldnt say dirty, and outdated. The bed was awful, and there was an extra bunk bed there. This is definitly for the cost savy family traveling that doesnt mind "roughing it". That being said the staff was awesome, friendly and interested and genuinely interested. I'd... More
