I stayed at the Blackcomb Lodge totally spontaneously. We booked the hotel room the same day that we stayed over, by calling Whistler Premier Resorts Accomodations. I didn't expect the best rooms because of the late check in and late booking, but I didn't expect such a horrible experience either!
When we checked in, I didn't find the staff particularly rude; I tried to request a quiet room but there were none by the time we got there so we had a room that faces the Village. Boy, was it loud at night! You can hear EVERYTHING from the street, from people yelling, partying, and just a constant hum and murmur from the bar and people talking.
Not only this, this hotel has VERY thin walls. I could hear the couple in the room next door in their bedroom activities. This was very unpleasant... After they were done their activities, I could also hear shower noises...
So, I barely had any sleep - imagine having to put up with street / bar noise, the couple next door, the shower, and peopel walking by outside the room. When I asked the front desk for ear plugs, they wanted US to go downstairs to get them; they wouldn't even deliver.
Also, when we requested for a duvet earlier in the same night, it was just crumpled altogther; they didn't even bother folding it to us before handing it to us.The pillow in the closet also had some hair on it... I wonder when the last time was that they washed it?
Did I mention the mattresses are terrible as well? You can feel EVERYTHING when your other half moves.
I do not have high standards for hotels; usually I'm prety happy with a clean motel or an average hotel. But this lodge's terrible location, noise just can't cut it! This was the worst hotel I've ever stayed at in Whistler.
The only good thing was the reasonable overnight parking charge of $13 / night.
