“Good value Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Nice economy lodge. Not fancy but a good value. A few simple improvements would be worthy: towels were like sandpaper, pool was a bit grungy and the TV remote did not change channels, even after a battery change (frustrating but not a big deal).
Location was great! Village was an easy walk down the hill but a shuttle was also available for the less energetic.
Would stay here again.

Excellent place to stay, clean, tidy and well placed. A free mini bus provided an excellent link to village centre when wearing ski boots saving the walk, definitely a good base for Whistler. Parking is expensive, if you do not neeed the car daily, consider public parking

For large families that want to stay together and eat in, this lodge is the best. Roomy apartment with 2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms bunk beds in the hall and a pull out in the living room, full kitchen and dining space all for the price of a double hotel room. Short walk from the village too. I have spent time looking but could not find better value in whistler.
That said this is not a luxurious hotel and the bathrooms are a bit dated. If you care about those things you can pay a much much higher price somewhere else.

I just recently stayed at Tantalus for an extended weekend of snowboarding (3/14-3/18/2013). Hotel staff is friendly. The room was clean (Room 124) even though it was all the way at the end of the hall. My only complaint with the room is that even though the room had a nice kitchen, it was not very well stocked with supplies such as frying pans and pots. However, I'm sure they would have taken care of that if I had bothered to mention it to staff. It just didn't matter enough to me to bother.

Hotel policy requires that you store your skis or board in a locked storage room instead of taking it back and forth to your own room. If you want to lock your equipment to the rack you can either take your own lock or rent one from the hotel.

Tantalus is about a 10 minute walk from the Whistler Gondola. They also provide shuttle service, roughly every 5 minutes, to and from the village for times when you find that walking with gear is too cumbersome and tiring. However, shuttle service ends at 5 and I believe the driver takes lunch from 1230 to 2, or something along those lines.

They also provide free wifi (or at least I was able to access free wifi). But it is sometimes unreliable. My bed was very comfortable. The shower had good water pressure and termperature control. The carpets appeared regularly cleaned.

I give this place 4 instead of 5 stars simply because I save 5 stars for the exceptional.

We recently returned from a 2 week trip to Whistler staying at the Tantalus lodge. The lodge is in a great quiet location and just a 5 minute walk to Whistler gondola but if you are lazy/exhausted after riding on the mountain all day they have also have a great shuttle service. Rooms were lovely and spacious and nicely decorated. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. We got married whilst on our trip and the staff at the hotel went out of their way to make our day special leaving some lovely romantic touches in our room ( lovely heart shaped rose petals on our bed, swan shaped towels) and a suprise bottle of sparkling wine for us too. Our 2 year old loved borrowing the sleds that we used on the wee slope at the kids play area at the hotel. Would stay again!

Plus: Very large rooms, clean, and great location to whistler gondola but a bit dated. If you don't feel like walking there's a shuttle bus that runs frequently and drops you at the entrance to the village. Its close enough to the gondola but remote enough from the noise in the village. Minus: no free wifi, parking is extra, fireplace uses logs but not included as part of the room rental.

Would stay there again.

We couldn't have expected more for the money. The room was quiet (often an issue in the newer buildings in Whistler), clean and spacious for our 3 adults and 2 small children. Very comfy beds, newly appointed living room and kitchen. The staff was friendly and attentive. Pool/hot tub was just ok (and you had to walk outside to get to it). We will definitely be back again!
