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

Have stayed here in Oct 2014 and again in March 2015. Stayed on same floor each time due to dog. Find this the better if not the best Hotel deal in Fernie for what you get for the price. Other hotels or motels in Fernie charge us more and no pool. Continental Breakfast could have a bit more variety. Main... More

Enjoyed our stay, friendly staff and nice accommodation, and fun hot tub. Skiing was lousy at Fernie so it was nice to relax in the hot tub with other guests. Breakfast was basic so we went into town to Blue Toque - great.

The Hotel is always under staff... Needs lots of updating. We stayed in this hotel because of price but would pay more to stay in another property in Fernie. Breakfast was not good at all but dinner was good... I would not recommend anyone

We have stayed at The Stanford many times before having also experienced other accommodation in Fernie. As on every occasion this visit was also exceptional and we were reluctant to leave. The staff were friendly and helpful and dealt with all of our needs, the accommodation was clean, well appointed and provided a welcome home from home. Although The Stanford... More
