“Absolutely Incredible Gem in the Palm of the Mountains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2011

My husband and I were blown away by the beauty not only in Whistler, but at the First Tracks Lodge. We did not want to leave our room!! We weren't sure we would like Whistler Creekside since it's not connected to Whistler Village, but we left actually preferring it! We loved the peace and quiet that Creekside offered, and were close enough to the Village hustle and bustle if we actually wanted to be a part of it. We ordered take out, cranked up our fireplace, and read books all day long. Perfection.

There is a Starbucks across the street and a great grocery store with a lot of organic food to equip our kitchen with. There are also restaurants in Creekside, so you're really without want for anything. And there are *two* hot tubs-- a brilliant idea with all of the skiiers needing to soak their muscles after a long day on the slopes!

The facilities are incredible and the staff is amazing-- we received a $10 Starbucks card if we agreed to forego daily maid service-- an easy compromise! They will deliver anything you need complimentarily-- you just don't get your bed made. Totally fine by me. :)

I will be back in a hearbeat! Ask for any of the rooms ending in "06" if you want a more spacious room, or for rooms facing the ski lift, slopes or gondolas if you want a view. We can't wait to return!!

Room Tip: See tips above. Also, stop by the WalMart in Squamish (30 km away) and load up on groceries-- the sh...

After reviewing many of the lodgings for Whistler on Trip Advisor, this one caught my attention.
We stayed at First Tracks Lodge with our Daughter and Son in Law over the Labor Day Weekend, and were able to get a great deal, which made this place even more affordable! The 2 Bedroom suite was very spacious, and nicely furnished. There was plenty of room for the four of us, and not feel as though we were cramped. Our suite was on the ground level right beside the pool/hot tub area. This was a small noise distraction, but we found that the hotel seemed to be very good at enforcing it's 10pm Quiet Policy, and so were not bothered with unwanted noise from that area in the late evening. The kitchen area had very nice appliances, and was well stocked with dishes and cookware, although some of the items were a bit worn.
The drive back and forth to the main village was worth it for the quieter location.
We would definitely stay here again should we ever have another opportunity to be in Whistler

Fantastic apartment - best in which I have ever stayed. Nicer than my flat. Sparklingly clean, luxuriously appointed. I can't speak for facilities & ski-lifts as didn't use, but would agree with others that although it's a little way out of town, this did make it very quiet and peaceful. Not for you if you like to be in the thick of things, but ideal if you want somewhere to repair to for some down time.

My wife and I are first time visitors to Whistler. The staff provided us with all we needed to know! Referral to Rim Rock Cafe for Dinner was awesome!. Thank you so much for being a part of our visit to Whistler!
Clean, spacious. Pool, hot tub, and steam room all a nice break from walking the mountains.

Beautiful amenities, spacious rooms, and a great, quiet location that is still conveniently close to the village, without having to deal with the noise and busyness of the village. We rode our bikes using the Valley Trail to and from Creekside to the Village, which was about an easy 15 minute ride (one-way). Highly recommend a walk or a ride along the Valley Trail as it leads to many lakes and lovely beaches/grassy parks. Can't wait to come back for a stay during ski season as First Tracks is right at the base of the gondola. Front desk service was always very helpful as well.

We were looking for a two day/ one night get away to Whistler this summer and didn't want to pay an arm and leg to stay at a reasonable hotel. After reading much of the reviews, we decided to to give this hotel a try. WOW! a very pleasant surprise. The receptionist was very friendly, even helped us with a great restaurant recommendation (Alta Bistro - a must try). The one bedroom suite was spacious with updated amenities, great decor ( a home away from home and more), even heated floors, separate shower stall and jacuzzi tub. All for $140 per night and it included parking (which can be upwards of $20 at other hotels).

Yes, it is located at Creekside, so if you prefer the hustle, bustle and noise stay at the Village but for peace and quite at night stay here. One tip - on Monday nights the band plays at the Dusty's Pub, so may want to request a mountain facing room to avoid some of that noise.

We enjoyed our stay and will be staying there on our next visit as well.
