Reviewed September 13, 2013

We stayed with some friends for four nights as part of a fortnight's holiday in B.C. The main purpose of our holiday was to go hiking and Whistler presents endless opportunities.

Check-in was very straightforward. The room key gives you access to the underground car park. Some of the spaces are quite narrow when you're not used to driving a big American MPV!

Our room was huge. An enormous double bed, excellent well equipped bathroom, very well equipped kitchen and a comfortable living area. There were two flat screen TVs - one in the lounge and one in the bedroom. Outside was a lovely balcony with comfortable chairs and table. One of the other reviews mentioned about the thermostat - ours was OK but our friends had a problem which the hotel put right.

There is a nice pool area and hot tub.

First Tracks Lodge is only ten minutes drive from Whistler where you can park all day for free in Lot 4.

I would love to return to Whistler and if I did I would certainly use this hotel.

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in September. This lodge is about a 10 minute drive to downtown Whistler in the little community to Creekside. I was planning on staying for only 2 night and decided to extend my stay for a few more nights. Well appointed, spacious and had everything you could want in the room. Would definitely return and I highly recommend First Tracks!

I booked first tracks lodge for my honeymoon the third week of August 2013. It was absolutely gorgeous in whistler and our single bedroom condo was amazing. We absolutely loved it! The kitchen had all the necessities to make breakfast. The bathroom had a nice jacuzzi style bathtub and a standing shower. There was a second bathroom also with a standing shower. we had the larger single bedroom. Since I had made the reservation 2 months in advance, I had put in a request for the larger single bedroom. The single bedroom can easily accommodate upto 4 people. The sofa in the living room is a sleeper sofa. The pool area has a grill so if you get your own meats, you can do your own grilling.

The best restaurant I found to eat walking distance from the hotel was the creekbread pizza place. Best pizza I have ever had. All organic and all that. Whistler village a short drive from this hotel and you can either drive there yourself or take the bus. The front desk sells bus tickets.

For groceries there are two options in the village, the marketplace and the grocery store. I would recommend the marketplace since its bigger, more variety, and alot more cheaper than the grocery store.

All in all a wonderful experience and we will be staying there again.

We stayed there in July. Great unit, large and comfortable. Had everything you needed to make your stay relaxing. Plan on going back next year. When we arrived we had an issue with the thermostat's, within a few minutes someone came and instructed us on settings.

This lodge is about a 10 minute drive to downtown whistler in the little community to creekside. Very beautiful lodge with very nice layout. We stayed two nights in August with out family of four. Two little ones under 5. What we enjoyed about the lodge was the beautiful pool and the large rooms. Very nice layout for a family. Full size kitchens and beautiful bathrooms. It is always nice to have space when traveling with kids so mommy and daddy feel like they are having a little holiday. The lodge is close to a little market, Starbucks, subway and other restaurants and diners. Some really good food in the area. What we didn't like was the check in. No one told us we had to go to the lodge next door to check in. Not enough towels for a family of 4 in the room. Only 4 pool towels and after the first night we lost two sets of bathroom towels. The housekeepers only gave us two sets. They also have a note they only give you one pot of coffee pre stay. Which my husband was not impressed with. Over all though an excellent place to stay. On a side note they have a great BBQ set up to use. Next time we will be using it!

We stayed in September 2013 and had a 2-room suite... it was not only excellent value, but a really excellent room/suite... very close by to take aways and a decent supermarket if you want to eat it (after 3 weeks traveling we needed some home cooked food!).

The staff were super friendly and welcoming and they really helped us out with a late checkout and access to the facilities for the whole day of check out...

Can't fault it really... would definitely stay again, but I'm sure the price will be a lot different in winter!!! ;-)
