We have stayed at this property several times, but this time we were disappointed with the cleanliness of our room. We had trouble opening the door to a small deck and a friendly staff member came quickly to help us. When we mentioned our concerns about cleanliness to the front desk, we received a $10 discount, also disappointing.

Hi Suzi, we're so glad to have had you as a repeat guest and we apologize for any issues with cleanliness. As you may know from past visits, this is not typical here as we hold our rooms to very high standards. We would like to contact you to further work toward a resolution on this. Please contact our director,... More

This was our last stop on our road trip through BC and I am glad we picked the Standard. The room was clean; a little dated, but it had all the amenities - fridge, microwave, wifi and a balcony overlooking the river. The pool area was also very nice; large and it has an 80 foot waterslide to entertain kids... More

Had a great experience in Fernie and the clerk at the front desk was really helpful and great at letting us know where to go for hiking trails and other places to check out. 5 thumbs up and well worth it!

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Stanford Inn during our first visit to Fernie. We booked a jacuzzi room which faced the river which was fabulous :) We found the hotel to be charming, cozy, and full of character which is exactly what we wanted. The rooms were clean and the bed was very comfortable. We had no... More

This was the first hotel we stayed at on our road trip to B.C. The room is clean although it is a little bit small. However, I like how our room has a patio door with a bench and picnic table outside. It is also near the pool and hot tub. I also like how they have all the toiletries... More

My family really enjoyed our stay here. Obviously, the pool and waterslide had a lot to do with this. Both the pool and hot tub were clean and accessible. The family suite room worked very well for us, with a tv in the loft area, so parents aren't stuck whispering in a dark room after the kids go down. The... More

Very beautifully located right by the Elk River and close to the skihill and Fernie downtown. The rooms are really spacious and very clean and the decor in the whole building is very modern and pretty.

The VIEW from the one side of this hotel is so awesome, it is of the mighty Elk River!! There nothing like waking up envious seeing two people flying fishing out your patio. Also it is pet friendly!! All of the staff were very helpful and friendly a job well done by all. Joe L.

We travelled into the US with our son's basketball team recently, and chose the Fernie Stanford Resort as our stop over on our way home.

We stopped into the Stanford Resort on our way to British Columbia. We had stayed there before, and had really enjoyed it. It is also dog friendly, so that fit into our plans well.
