We loved the pool, loved the rustic decor, and the unique touches. However, the fundamentals, like the mattresses, the bedding, and the shower etc, are just adequate. Definitely not the most comfy night sleep. To be fair, you get what you pay for and this time we chose a hotel for it's affordability. The staff was super friendly and helpful!... More

We r loving it. Front desk was very welcoming. Our room is "in basement" as one person commented previously in the reviews but ALL pet rooms are on lowest floor and I sure wouldn't call it the basement. Very cozy, clean and kind of rustic decor. No air but window opens to a river view. We took our chairs n... More

On the plus side the staff is great, and the pool and hot tubs are nice. However this is definately a budget hotel. no a/c in pet friendly rooms. excercise room has 2 treadmills and not much else. Definately needs updating.

We always drove by and wanted to stay, maybe it's because of the pool and water slide that you can see or the exterior that makes it look appealing but believe me not worth it:( sadly we paid over 230$ a night 27 of June for two days and we are so disappointed... Saddened really that they had no other... More

It saddens us to hear about your experience, Sweetmomsaskatchewan. We are host to countless families whose opinion is just the opposite of yours: they love our modern aquatic facility and appreciate the value that we offer over other hotels in the area. The tone of your review makes us suspect something more might be going on here apart from the... More

Too much chlorine in the pool. Eyes were red for 2 hours. Breakfast was horrible. Room needs upgrades. Understaffed at all times. Stay somewhere else. Staff tried to reedeem the services but will look for something else next time when we come to Fernie.

Hi Robert, if you encounter a problem as serious as an overchlorinated pool, we suggest immediately bringing it to the attention of our staff. We maintain our aquatic facilities to the highest standards and, if this was indeed the case, it would be of great concern. We are sorry to hear that your stay didn’t meet with your expectations, and... More

We were en route from the prairies into BC and Fernie would be a lengthy drive for us...so a perfect overnight destination. We had been to Fernie previously staying at a less than stellar motel on a Xmas vacation...then at a marvelous home stay for a summer vacation. This time we were traveling with our dog, so needed a pet... More

The swimming pool and huge slide for this type of hotels were the main attraction for our kids. Room was very clean and nice, with one loft bed this was not the average hotel room. I'm not a big fan of East Indian cuisine, but the restaurant on site served very very good meals. Recommended!

This beautiful rustic style hotel is located in the beautiful Canadian Rockies near the ski resort of Fernie and when we stayed in May it was for the incredible price of $99 a night. This included breakfast and the children loved it as it has a waterslide swimming pool and outdoor hottubs. Fernie is a very small town and this... More

When I began my search for a dog friendly hotel in Fernie I was expecting a low-quality motel. When I found that Stanford had a pet friendly floor and their rooms were only $99/night I thought it was too good to be true! But we pulled into this river front hotel and it was a nice hotel with a large... More
