“Where to stay in New Denver”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2011

I have stayed here a couple of times, both with small groups of motorcyclists here to enjoy the excellent roads in the area. The #2 and #3 riding roads in Canada are nearby. The first time, the owner reserved an area of the parking lot for our bikes, which kept them safe from cars but also used the space far more efficiently. And made us feel appreciated.

This last time, I must say I have never been spoiled so shamelessly as I was here. Maggie went the extra mile (er, kilometer) to make us happy. She mentioned that making her guests smile was her desire in running the place. That attitude means an awful lot to me as a guest. Even now, she's hanging on to some postcards I wrote to friends, and will mail them as soon as the Canada Post strike is over.

At some point, the Valhalla Inn will probably have to bite the bullet and install air conditioning, but for now, the windows open and help keep it cool. The only other thing lacking was a microwave; that would be much cheaper, faster, and easier to fix. I don't know when this place was built, but the lack of A/C and the pink bathtub might be clues. In any case, everything in the room worked well.

The bed was comfortable, the place was clean and quiet. Electric baseboard heat is silent, so the only sound at night was the fridge purring away.

They need to have a geek come in and fix their wireless network. When I could connect, it worked wonderfully, a surprise for such a rural area, but often I could not connect, and it seemed to go away completely at night. Perhaps the router is plugged into the same socket as the office lights?

The food is great, and the modest menu includes things you don't see everywhere, like a Monte Cristo sandwich. Everything I've eaten there has been delicious. The bar has great service, a pool table, and a well-stocked jukebox.

I look forward to next year's visit!
