We stayed at this resort while in town for a Hockey Tournament and we loved it! Our rooms were basic, but clean and had everything we needed including a fridge and microwave. Our room had access to a large outdoor patio to enjoy a morning coffee; it was a nice touch! They offered a free continental breakfast that had the...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed July 31, 2016 via mobile

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. There is a nice big indoor pool (included in the price!!) with a huge waterslide and a great outdoor deck for sunbathing.... the staff...

We had a blast. The hotel is clean and is just finishing a face lift - which the workers did with minimal disruption. We had a downstairs conference room for two nights for the parents to use and kids. The water slide was a blast - it must have been as the hockey team was like a train up and...

Pros: We had a spacious room with jacuzzi, it was clean, had a fridge, coffee maker, microwave, comfortable bed and a nice little balcony. Two TVs, one of which is pointed at jacuzzi and another at the bed. Two options for heating is a great idea, it meant that we didn't have to listen to the loud heating unit and...

Hi Dave, we're glad you enjoyed your stay. We will certainly take your comments about our Keurig machines into consideration as we look for ways to reduce our waste and carbon footprint. Concerning our continental breakfast, it doesn’t offer the same selection that a full restaurant breakfast would, but most guests find the selection to be ample for a quick...

This is an older hotel that could use some updates. It is clean and has a great pool and water slide. Friendly staff and good breakfast. But the price is high for the room quality and furnishings. The 13 inch TV in the honeymoon suite is an absolute joke. WHY have a TV to watch while soaking in the tub...

Have worked and used hotel the last 5 + years running (Summer Months). Summer 2016 had a crew that peaked at 90 men. We used the hotel for condos, rooms, office space and room for daily morning meetings. Manager, front desk, cooks, hotel staff second to none! Staying and using the Stanford for work was truly like a vacation, and...

We have stayed before as my daughter loves the pool and slide. James at the front desk was like a true concierge - Friendly and helpful with great local suggestions and hotel services. He anticipated our needs ahead of asking and made me feel comfortable arranging accommodations for my M.S. and mobility issues. We would definitely stay again!

We usually come to Fernie and stay at this hotel once a year, we just got back. Another reviewer described the hotel as a Log Lodge on a river, that is a better description than I could come up with.
