Arrived from Golden during a week long tour of seeing several sites and staying in various hotels. This was definitely the most disappointing yet. So much that if it wasn't for the location, I am not sure it would still be around.
We were appointed a room very like the one described above under "Tired and Scruffy Old Timer". Unlike those guests though, we were not offered a complimentary upgrade, Instead, I quickly went to reception and reserved dinner - hinting that the hotel would get more money out of us. I then promptly asked if we could be upgraded to a better standard of room. Staff insisted on an upgrade fee for both nights. I offered to pay for one night, but was told I could stay in the allocated room on one evening and move the next. In other words, still paying for my upgrade.
With the cost of upgrading a total of $80+CAD, the receptionist clearly didn't think quickly enough that the cost of dinner would be around the same.
I decided that with no offer to me, my dinner reservation be cancelled, thus in effect, costing this place money. We ate in a lovely hotel 5 minutes away called the Post Hotel in the pub area. Go there instead for dinner. Much more reasonably priced too.
I would not recommend this "hotel" to anyone looking for a stop over. There are plenty of others off Lake Louise Road to choose from. You could not do any worse.
