“Lots of Bang For Your Buck Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2010

We decided to go for a last minute weekend get-away to Whistler and this hotel was a good deal, so we decided to give it a try. The staff at the front desk were very friendly from the moment we walked in, and we enjoyed a friendly chat with them every time we went out into the village. The room was pretty decent, all little small, but it was nice to have a full kitchen with full appliances, and the bed was very comfy. As far as hotels rooms go, this one was pretty modern. The pool was awesome, it was great that was heated, but I think that the hotel should consider putting in a bigger hot tub-it was always stuffed to capacity :) Didn't try the resturant but it looked popular. The location was the best part-you step outside and you're right in the village. I'd recommend this hotel-you get a lot of bang for you buck.

My husband and i stayed in a loft suite with our two sons. The loft was great with a comfortable queen bed and separate bathroom. We even had a sauna in our room. Downstairs had a fold out couch and a pull out bed in a bench in the kitchen area. It was perfect for our boys. The kitchen was well stocked. There was a bathroom in the downstairs area with a jacuzzi tub. there was also a fireplace. The lobby was dated but the rooms were adequately decorated. The location was fantastic. We were there four days and never moved our car. The price was very reasonable.

After doing some research on places to stay in Whistler we opted for the Mountainside Lodge as it seemed to be central and cheap – always a bonus! Well after a fabulous stay I can’t rave about this hotel enough, from checking in to checking out everything was great. We found the staff to be lovely and very helpful – they even let us check in a bit early!

As we were a party of four we had booked a loft suite. The room was very clean and every detail had been thought of, from kitchen utensils galore to enough towels to keep you going for a month! And we didn’t find the décor dated at all – after reading some previous reviews this seemed to crop up quite a bit! Just be warned though that the bedroom in the loft is on a mezzanine style floor so there is limited privacy. As we were a group of friends this wasn’t a problem but if there was two couples staying there or a family with older children I could see this might be an issue. During our stay we also tried out the pool and hot tub which were fab. The pool was a really nice temperature and you could catch a glimpse of the mountains. We did feel a bit self-conscious getting out of the pool in front of everyone eating their dinner in the restaurant!

I suppose the only downside we found was that the room got quite warm and stuffy however this was quickly resolved by sticking the air con on – although with it on it did sound like the room was going to take off!

Location was slap bang in the middle of the village which is exactly what we were after. Obviously with being in such a central location it does come with some noise but this was hardly noticeable! If you're looking at going in winter to do some skiing/boarding the Whistler gondola (which you also use to access the PEAK 2 PEAK gondola) is literally a few steps away. I also recommend doing the PEAK 2 PEAK anytime of the year - although do dress wisely. When we went up, there had just been a fresh fall of snow the night before and we were not wearing the most appropriate footwear and felt the cold!

Overall Whistler is great with stunning views and a chilled atmosphere and our visit was enhanced further by our stay in this hotel! I'm already planning my next trip back to Whistler and without doubt will be staying in the Mountainside Lodge!

After looking at other hotels, we thought this hotel was worth a try and it was wallet-friendly. We only stayed one night in Whistler but we would stay here again if we returned to Whistler. The lady on reception kindly gave us some great places to eat and what to do in a day.

The decor is a bit dated but do not let that put you off too much. We had a studio room with a pull down bed which was comfy. There is a kitchenette in the room, perfectly fine bathroom and dining area by the kitchen. There are coin operated washers and driers available and an outdoor swimming pool which was nice and warm on a coldish morning.

Ideally located for Whistler Village and the only slight niggle was a bit of road noise but even that was minimal.

We have been to Whistler many times before and have loved staying at Mountainside Lodge. Our favorite restaraunt in the space below is Trattoria. Great Food and Ambiance. We came this last weekend to Telus and loved the fact that we are right in the heart of the village. Pulled in and parked, and didn't have to move our car once the whole stay. Walked to the lifts, pubs, shopping and yet because this isn't the first hotel right in the center, it buffered the noise of the bands so it was very quiet which is important to us when we are sleeping. They have not done alot of updates, but it was nice to have a full kitchen, fireplace, and jaccuzzi tub and dry sauna in our room. We are going back in 2 weeks and will be trying to get he same room. The only negative I would say is that the beds were a little hard. Not like the plush one I have at home!

Greetings,

Our family (two teenagers+two adults) went on a whislter ski trip early March.

Location :

very nicely located, walkable distance to both whistler and blackcomb gondolas. Always a nice feeling when you can leave your hotel/condo room with your ski boots on !

room :

we had the mezzanine suite with one bedroom upstairs including full bathroom and a small sauna. Our two teenagers were using the sofa bed downstairs and complained a bit about the sofa bed comfort. Our own bed was really comfortable, no issues there, however i would probably not recommend for adults to sleep in the sofa bed.

the kitchen is fully furnished, you can cook your own meals - very useful for family -.
full size fridge, coffee machine, toaster, stove/oven, dishwashing machine, etc..

there are no washing machine in the room however, there is a separate area in the building however if you wish to use washing machine.

Pool / Hot Tub :

We didn;t use it. Please note that hot tub is outdoor and quite small (was always full..).

Parking :

indoor underground parking. Careful, it's a 17$ per day additional fee, not included in your room fee.

Staff :

very professional and knowledgeable staff. they provided us all the required support and informations whenever we needed it.

Lockers :

With your room you get a ski/snowboard locker located in the undergound parking area. Very useful.

Ski :

fantastic mountain. Guaranteed pleasure for any level of skiers.
prioritse the symphony amphiteather on whistler mountain and both the glacier and the seven heaven area on blackcomb mountain (especially on a nice sunny day)

We would definitely go back to this hotel. It's very decent , excellent location and price is right.

We booked via Whistler web site, and bought a 5 night free package. When we arrived we also got the option to upgrade our studio to a delux room - which cost us $20 extra per night. The total price per night for the delux room came down to $147 (incl tax). Parking is pretty pricy - $17 per day ($85 for five days). We where happy to upgrade the room, which then included a jacuzzi for two (in the bedroom!!!), two tv's, comfy bed, two washrooms (one with a tub/shower), a kitchen(net) and another sofa/pull out bed. The room was clean and we had tons of space.

The only thing that was negative was the sound proofing of the windows - or the lack of. Bring ear plugs! No noice from other rooms, but from cars and people outside the hotel. We had a room facing Blackcomb, but still very noisy.
