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.

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 It was grungy, I wouldnt say dirty, and outdated.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

I stayed at the Griz Inn with family. 2 weeks :)! It was a great location, step outside the lodge and you're within sight of the ski lift. Just ski/snowboard to it and you're off!

We recently stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with other family while even more family was housed right next door to us. Staff suggested a change to allow us to be closer together. The staff wer fabulous.

We just stayed in one of the two bedroom condo units this past weekend. Our group was two couples and a baby. The unit was on the ground floor which made access great, and since we spent half our time in Fernie doing mountain things (zip line, hiking, etc.) the hotels location is prime as well. I was expecting a... More
