“Basic and cheap accomodation”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

Not the fanciest accommodation, but it does the job. Definitely the place to stay if you are looking for a place to sleep after skiing and with a hot tub. Rooms are clean, but the entire building looks pretty worn out. The front desk were friendly, and tried to help us as much as possible with whatever we needed.

For what me and my friends paid, I would come back again for my next ski trip.

From the moment we arrived, snarly check in and tried to get us to pay more despite confirmed email check in, to the "complimentary" breakfast where they ran out of food, and a very old and tired room.

You can hear every word from the room next door, the carpet thin, no place to walk without tracking mud and wet. Even the people outside seem to be in the room with you the walls are so thin.
The breakfast is pretty basic to be kind. No fruit, white bread only, two cereal and coffee. That's all

My family and I stayed here about two summers ago while vacationing in Banff and liked it a lot, so when we decided to spend a week there skiing at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, it was a pretty easy decision to stay there again. The rooms were comfortable and clean, same as the last time I'd stayed. I'll just point out the major things I liked and didn't like below.

Pros: Shuttle to the resort picks up right outside their gate and comes every half hour; hot tub for after skiing; front desk staff is very friendly; Zales steakhouse across the street is a great place to eat.

Cons: Breakfast isn't much, and I'd recommend just getting your own stuff if you're planning on skiing. The lifts start shutting down at around 3 PM, so you need to show up early to get as much time on the slopes as possible. Not exactly a con of the hotel, but the shuttle drops off a little farther down the street, which isn't a big deal but the first time I rode, the driver didn't announce it was the Gateway Inn stop, so I missed the stop and had to walk a ways back after I finally got the driver to stop.

Overall, I liked it just as much in the winter as I did in the summer. The rooms are a good value for the price. The shuttle makes getting to the resort without a car convenient, and the hot tub is nice after a day of skiing.

Cheap... but not cheap enough. Everything needs to be renovated and cleaned as it looks as though it has been untouched since the 70's.

Keep yourself entertained and out of the room (which is easy enough in Revelstoke)

PS- Eat at The Nomad (restaurant just across the street) They have great everything!

Room Tip: You can hear the train go by on the side of the hotel facing the highway. Keep yourself busy and OU...

Stayed 15th Sept 2012
Okay for the money, quiet as it is situated off the main road, large car park, fair size room, clean. No kettle for tea making.
Good as a stop off on the way to the Rockies.
Would recommend for one night stay only.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing mountains

Well, it's a good thing I didn't read the reviews before I booked it! My husband was driving from Saskatoon to Vancouver Island, B.C. with our seven kids, ages 3-16, and called me to get him a place in Revelstoke. Apparently, the last place I got him he wouldn't take a shower in it, so I was a little nervous! Anyway, the lady on the phone was lovely. Friendly, sympathetic, accommodating, and helpful. I booked a suite with 4 double/queen beds, and hoped for the best. Got a phone call from the family after they got in, and they were thrilled. I guess it depends where you spent your previous night! The breakfast is listed as being very light, so they are prepared for a bit of a snack and then will eat on the road later. We'd stay there again, should the occasion demand.

Upstairs back room was large and clean, with a separate room for the second double bed!
A fridge, microwave and coffee maker were squished in between the bathroom and the outside door. The bathtub definitely needed attention - weird shower system and it took ages to drain!
The breakfast was really substandard - cheap bread (one, two slice toaster), uninteresting cereals, coffee, and the usual packets of really sweet jam. No fruit or anything else. Eat elsewhere if you are planning an active day.

Room Tip: Some rooms on the upper floor (accessed from the back) take up the width of the building and have a...
