Just got back from the Tantalus Lodge. When we first arrived we were greeted by dozens of semi-naked drunken college age kids, walking to our room we passed lots of loud parties. This certainly didn't look like the kind of place I would take a family to.
We stepped over a pile of nachos in the corridor floor. They were still there several hours later (albeit ground in from being trod on).
Charging for wi-fi is a bit mean these days. Come on, Starbucks, Super 8, Travel Lodge and even the top of the mountain has free wi-fi. Parking charges added salt to the wounds.
Finally the floors and walls are strangely warped and we were scared to go out on the creaky old balcony. Although we noticed mot of our neighbours were on their balconies ignoring the no smoking signs.
I guess if you want reasonable Whistler rates and to party with friends it could be fun. A relaxing weekend with the family.........forget about it.
Friendly staff and proximity to the ski hill were the positives.
