“Wonderful location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2009

We stayed here in October 2008. Our room was spacious,nice and clean. The bathroom was fairly clean.There was a coffee maker with free coffee and tea bags.The best thing was the location. As we stepped out of the room we were surrounded by mountains on all sides. It was beautiful.There was a breakfast place just behind the lodge and a couple of other restaurants within walking distance.Downtown was about five minutes by car.
The service was friendly.
Overall good value for money.

Even though the hotel is slightly dated it is very reasonably priced and everything is clean. The staff was friendly and everything in working order.

GM-RMSL, General Manager at Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge, responded to this review, 27 May 2009
Thank you for your kind comments about the Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge. Please be advised that our Wireless Internet access is FREE and always has been free. We can only assume that when you came on to the network you interpreted our message ‘try free for 15 minutes’ to mean there may be a charge afterward. In fact, it is set in place this way so that after 15 minutes, a guest would have to contact the front desk for a login code. This allows us control over who is using our system and limits non-motel-guests from using our bandwidth.
Having said that, we will change the wording to: ‘after 15 minutes of trial use, please contact the front desk for a secure login code’.

We hope you will return again sometime and take advantage of the Free Wireless Internet Access.

Sincerely,

Donna Trautman
General Manager

For those of us on a budget who can't afford $ 175 CDN and up a night for a Rocky Mountain vacation the $110 CDN / night price for a well- appointed 1 br apt is great !

Pet - friendly place with staff who are willing to address any concerns we had right on the spot .!

Our room also smelled musty but a visit to the office and it was looked after right away .!

Sometime I think people writing these reviews look for any shortfall with a place and don't bother approaching the staff with their concerns or expect it to be looked after immediately . Pretty unreasonable and unrealistic expectation of any accomodation staff in my opinion .

To the guest who had to step over the garbage , could you not have asked the staff member to move the garbage out of your way , or , heaven forbid , move them yourself ?

We stayed here for one night whilst travelling through Canada.
Rooms were basic but clean with comfortable beds and reasonable sized bathroom.
Plenty of information in the room for travellers and close to local supermarkets and main high street.
The hotel is pet friendly and has a playground for children.
There can't be many budget hotels that can boast the views this one has from its parking lot!

Overall good value for money.

good price, location, very clean hot tub, sauna, laundry room, quiet. Tv is good, I loved having a kitchen(2 grocery stores a few blocks away). I was able to hang out in hot tub while waiting on laundry to finish! Staff was exceptionally helpful, friendly. We will definitely go here again. Only flaw: no closets. Ok since we were living out of suitcases anyway.

We stayed at RMSL for 7 days. The room was spacious; staff was friendly and helpful. It was unseasonably warm, however, during this week, and the air conditioner did not cool off the bedroom at all. We asked for a fan, and were told they only had two, both being used. We couldn't leave the windows open all night because we were on the ground floor. It was too hot to sleep several nights. The bed/pillows were quite hard We were also on the road side of the motel, and the train/road noise kept us awake, as well. If we return, we would ask for a unit in the back of the building to cut down the noise.

  • Liked — Staff was very nice and helpful
  • Disliked — Noise from outside and too hot in the room
