We stayed here a week in a jacuzzi suite room, the front desk people were awesome right from the beginning. The restaurant, also amazing but I will leave them a separate review. Breakfast was simple. They had some sort of large construction workers there during out stay that would demolish most of the breakfast by the time we made it... More

We were presently surprised at this hotel. The river side room was clean with a small balcony that had a view of the river. Nice to hear the river when you wake up. The bed was nice and the room was very quiet. The staff was extremely nice and inviting. I would stay there again.

We were upgraded to a condo because of room availability, and it was perfectly equipped for our stay with family. Quiet, clean and we enjoyed the friendly staff and the overall look and feel of the resort.

The Stanford Inn is in a picturesque, distinctive location on the far southwest end of Fernie, between the highway and the Elk River.

This Hotel was hassle free and is in a great location backing onto the river. It came with a decent breakfast and friendly staff. It was quite and the view onto the river was really great. It is a little out from the main area of town which is great for hiking around the area and along the river.
