“Great Location! Good hotel too.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

I stayed at this hotel in February 2013 for 3 days. Overall, I was impressed with the location more than the hotel. However, the hotel was still an excellent place to stay and had more than enough reasonable accommodations for the average traveler. It is a very affordable lodge (as long as you book early) and prime location with immediate access to the gondola to ski. Also several amazing restaurants and coffee shops nearby, including Starbucks. Food is expensive, so try to venture to nearby grocery store and pick up supplies for the kitchen. All utilities and pots/pans are included in the kitchen. No extra fees. Most of the rooms don't any view. It's a short building. This is more about using this as a place to sleep so you can venture out during the day. Bathroom is nice. Living room is very cozy. Heaters are very efficient and provide exact temperature you need. I highly recommend this hotel whether you ski or not.

Room Tip: I stayed in a duplex with several relatives. Very spacious and comfortable.

Hotel is located on one of the plazas on the pedestrian way of the village. Conveniently close to the gondolas. However I was surprised that how come it was allowed such a huge noise after midnight caused mostly by young crowd after they had a bit over the alcohol level obviously. They yell, scream all over the pedestrian streets. Wait a silent moment to fell asleep.
Room was outdated, carpets are dirty.
Room service was fairly poor. They just grabbed the used towels but forgot (!) to replace them a couple of time. They did not leave hand soap, coffee, etc. That is why we called the front desk several times. Yes, they supplied all immediately but it was annoying to call them and remind them all the time.
Somehow ski storage room guys didn’t seem happy what they were doing.
However skiing on Whistler-Blackcomb Mountains did cover all these discrepancies.

They put us in the worse room of the hotel with no balcony on the 1st floor, the room was shaped like a pizza slice. The location was great as it was in the center of all the activity but the noise level at night from the clubs and bars at night made it difficult to get good sleep after an exhausting day on the slope. The internet service was crappy as you had to keep disconnecting and connecting every 5 minutes to get on the web. There is no gym but the hot tub and pool were nice. The house cleaning was dismal as they do not clean, only replace towels, make beds and empty garbage. They didn't replace the coffee, cups and glasses every day. I had to keep going down to the front desk to get coffee pouches. I would not recommend this hotel because of the noise level, poor internet connectivity, no gym and poor house cleaning.

I couldn't fault the hotel facilities, or staff. The hotel was 2 minutes from the lifts and very conveniently located for everything else. To be fair, when we asked for a quieter room we did get a move to one which was good of them although we were disturbed to a lesser degree in that room by the people upstairs seemingly walking around in ski boots around 6am! However the experience prior to this in room 138 was one of noise keeping us awake until around 4.30am even with the window shut. The main culprit was "The Savage Beagle" club and it's patrons. The noise got worse progressively during the week towards the weekend. The patrons seemed to enjoy shouting loudly as they left the club, one night there seemed to be a very loud drinking game going on. The bass notes from the music were impossible to drown out even with ear plugs. The hotel has a notice on the back of the room doors concerning a bye law which prohibits loud noise in the hotel after 10pm. It's a pity this cannot be applied to outside the hotel. I'd have liked to give this hotel a better rating but I can't given the noise we experienced, especially as we missed out on skiing by having to catch up on sleep in the quieter daytime.

Room Tip: Insist on a quieter room when you book. If this can't be guarenteed, don't book.

I stayed in the Blackcomb Lodge for 3 days and I had a very pleasant experience. The staff is great, they are very quick for service and explains everything before you go into your room. The hotel is not that big so it is nice and quiet most of the time. It is close to the village stroll so expect some noise coming out of the local bars close by after hours. The location is excellent by far from other hotels I have been at in Whistler Village. It is located at the Village center, where there is a local market close by, drug store, liquor store and a places to sit and eat. It wasn't even 2 mins walking distance from my room from the 2nd floor to the market or liquor store. Speaking of room, the rooms are very roomy. Being an older hotel, the rooms where built to be very large and spacious. The room included a kitchenette; stove burner, oven, fridge, sink and even a dish washing machine. Can you believe there is a dish washing machine in a hotel room? Not that I would use it but damn, you don't see those in hotel room now a days. I stayed in a two twin bed room as I was with friends. It also included a pull out couch. I recommend getting room 101, the corner room makes it very large and you are facing away from all the noise from the village center. Other facilities also included; indoor pool and hot tub. They weren't the best pool and hot tub but at least you get one. The hotel is also beside the Araxi Restaurant, Gordon Ramsey's restaurant, but being tight on budget, I just bought my meals across the village center in the market. Overall my experience with the Blackcomb Lodge is very good. The price is not too bad, make sure you get it as a packaged deal so the price will be cheaper when you go. I highly recommend you stay in this hotel if you are looking to do a vacation up at Whistler for a few days.

Room Tip: Choose room 101, the corner room is the biggest of all the rooms.
