4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2011

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights. Check-in was easy and the staff were very polite. The room was basic but functional. The breakfast at Chez Francois was superb (2-3 minutes away by foot from our accomodation). Our rate was 238 CAD for 2 nights including all taxes and breakfast for 2. No complaints at all !

We stayed in a "family size" room. It had one bedroom plus a loft with two double beds. The living area had a futon that could fold down into an additional double bed. There are extra linens provided if people are planning to sleep on the futon.

The rates were incredibly reasonable and the location is convenient to almost any activity in the area.

The kitchen leaves much to be desired. Only two of the burners on our stove worked, and the kitchen was poorly equipped. Although there was an oven there were no baking dishes.
There are BBQs that are shared between the rooms, they were in good condition although I recommend bringing your own tools.

The hot tub was nice, and we did see a staff member testing the chlorine level. The sauna was broken.

One odd thing, the bathroom fan vents into the bedroom-this can be unpleasant at times.

Ok value I suppose if you're just looking for a place to park overnight and don't mind an older property in dire need of updating. But beware of the owner!! He became verbally abusive towards my adult niece and brought her to tears over a barking puppy. After spotting her alone outside, he approached her and began to scold her about her puppy before finally asking her to leave. All this after having already politely discussed the matter with both her fiance AND his father. Of course, after kicking her out, he quickly left the property before her fiance and his father came back looking for an explanation on his decision and behaviour. Our group of 19 people won't be back anytime soon!

GM-RMSL, General Manager at Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge, responded to this review, 10 June 2011
Welcoming, clean and customer service oriented is how we describe our business. While our property is older, it is well maintained and clean as our 18 years of Housekeeping Awards and positive comments can attest to. Also, we are Pet Friendly in designated areas and in some room types within our property for responsible dog owners who are conscientious about noise and our pet friendly rules.

We did not interpret the situation as these guests did. We had numerous complaints about their dogs barking from other guests in nearby rooms who couldn’t sleep. The dog owners left the dogs unattended in their room for quite some time. The dogs were barking for more than an hour in the middle of the night, until we could locate someone from their group in another room. While some guests complained in the night, more complained in the morning and all were compensated as they did not sleep with all the noise.

Our Owner, arrived in the morning in time to listen to guest complaints about noise and barking dogs only to find the same dog owner with her 2 dogs that were walking and defecating in our playground. Our owner pointed out other areas where they could take the dogs and the woman responded, “I thought you were dog friendly”. He explained, “Yes, with certain limits. Barking dogs in the middle of the night and walking them on the kid’s playground is definitely beyond our limits”. Within a short time, someone else from their party was again out in the kid’s playground with the dogs. He was asked to remove the dogs from the area when the man started swearing. As a result they were asked to check out a day early.
After they left, we also found a large stain on the carpet directly in front of the dresser-desk and had to block the room for steam cleaning. Their visit was very costly – to us.

Regards,
Donna Trautman
General Manager

This was a great find and an excellent value. I found this one on trip advisor and wondered if it would be as good as it looked. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. We took advantage of their increadible last minute deal on their web site. Also, the staff was extremely helpful! We plan to return on our next trip to the mountains.

Motel style. The rooms don't have extra space but they are well laid-out. Clean. Some rooms have the furnace inside the room. Mine was noisy and didn't put out much heat. Fair value at $90.

Verry nice place, easy to find. Clean and large rooms. After the transatlantic flight the right place to start our Canada holliday. In very calm setting. Good restaurants near by. Friedly staff. We enjoyed our stay and we like to come again. Last minute price was very reasonable. Rooms are nice and warm, although the outside temparature was below 20 Cesius.
