We had an awesome stay at the Stanford Resort in Fernie. The friendly staff are amazing. We have never experienced staff so helpful in our situation. Our keys to our convertible got locked in our trunk. From Fri night to Sunday morning, Joan at the front desk went out of her way to assist us. From contacting the Car Rental... More

This hotel has a western theme. Lots of logs and wood. We stayed in a 2 story suite for 3 nights. Free breakfast was OK. Kids loved the pool with waterside and hot tubs. The front desk staff are excellent. Very pleasant to deal with. My daughter forgot her ipod in the room when we checked out. We didn't realize... More

We stayed for one night and used the hot tub, got our laundry done and got a good night's sleep. The girl at the front desk was very friendly and helpful and showed us where to take a walk in town. This is a good place to bring the family because it has an indoor pool with water slides. I... More

We just got back from Fernie as as per usual stayed at the Fernie Stanford Resort. The hotel is situated about 2 km from the town limits. Therefore, not possible to walk into town, however, for some of this a positive as the resort is "by itself" and backs on the Elk River. We stay in the hotel per se,... More

The "Water Slide" hotel. Because of the pool and water slide kids love it. I also has a complimentary breakfast, which makes it easy for adults. The hotel is new, modern, and clean. To top it off it also has great WiFi. We try to stay here every time we come to Fernie.

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times, so we know there is no fluke. While this older hotel could use some updating, the rooms are "baby-safe" clean, the staff are friendly and helpful, and we thoroughly enjoy the pool area. Because of the older building, it isn't as soundproof as the newer buildings. The continental breakfast is... More

I stayed at the Fernie Stanford Resort during a business trip at the beginning of May. I'm calling it a hidden gem because you have to go just through town to get to it. I got the cozy feeling of being in the mountains, I was in a suite and it had a jacuzzi in the room and it was... More
