“had to pay but didnt stay there, on sled trip”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2009

went on to trip advisor found great place for dec.08 in revelstoke(7 acres b&b), so tried trip advisor for jan.09 sled trip and called selkirk inn, manager said place was renovated and we would get nicest room, half price week, booked four nights. Got off night shift and drove 12 hours to golden, upon check in office was closed?, early evening 7 pm, go to room number ... for assistance. Manager charged my card full amount up front for 4 nights, no taxes etc.?, then gave key to us. We went to room and were completely disappointed, checked out laundry and hot tub area and that was it, we were leaving that dump!. Went across street and checked two hotels and explained our situation, no problem, town was very quiet lots of rooms available. We went back to selkirk inn and were very nice about asking for a refund but manager lost it and was very rude!, said i had to pay 2 nights, instead of refunding my card 2 nights, charged my card again 2 nights. In the vehicle i noticed the charge and had to go back to her room again for refund, thought about having a police officer go with me but did not, the very ignorant lady got refund sorted out, paid 2 nights to leave when accommodation guide said one night, across street both places said they wouldnt even charge any nights for not wanting to stay. Stayed at the Prestige great place!, stopped at visitor center to put in complaint about selkirk inn on the way out of town, and got letter from BC tourism shortly after, owners were suppose to write to us by feb. 13 but did not, we were not suprised. Would not recommend staying there to any one!.

We came up for a couple of days from Calgary to go check out Kicking Horse. Although the snow wasn't where it usually is, this place sure checked out! Good value, rooms are in better shape than what I expected to get for what we paid (which was well below anything else in Golden), and they have a HUGE hot tub with jets and the works. Great place to stay overall, I highly recommend it!

We stayed here 1 night en route to Vancouver and it was fine. The price was good for a family - less than what we'd paid at 3 other hotels during the previous week. No fridge but we had a cooler in the car anyway. They must have read the previous review because they have wireless internet now, and the ice machine was full. For the good rate, I don't miss the coffee maker. Hotel room coffee is never good anyway and I thought that I saw a Tim Horrton's nearby when we pulled in.

Paid $69, love the hot tub. The jets are strong and are all at different heights. Its easy to massage all sore muscles after a ski day. The hot tub is nice and hot. Rooms are spacious and clean, warm in the winter with lots of hot water. The fireplaces can be a nice treat in winter.

If you need a refrigerator or coffee pot in the room, maybe try a kitchenette. Bring your own hair dryer.

I have stayed here many times. This is my favorite place to stay in Golden after skiing, due to the hot tub and the good value. (And the owners are very nice.)

We spent a week traveling in BC and arrived in Golden on the way home. Stopped at the Selkirk and found it to be the most expensive motel we had stopped at. All right it is Golden and maybe justified. Not a chance. It was also the worst motel we stayed at. There was no coffee in the room. No fridge in the room. The ice machine in the lobby was turned off and had to be turned on when we asked for ice. There were burn holes in the bed covering and the window coverings had holes. It was clean and functional. There is no danger this hotel will ever be sued for burning someone in the shower. More likely for freezing you to death. Also no internet connection. Not a place I will return to. I suspect they get very little return business.
