Good location, clean and comfortable room, bad breakfast, great pool, hot tub and water slide area! Room cleaning was marginal, staff was only somewhat helpful and got worked up when we needed an extra half hour to check out...

The front desk staff was friendly and helpful but the room was dirty with sticky, old gum on the carpet in more than one place.
The pool was supposed to be open at 8 am and at 8:30 we had to get the staff to open the pool area and take off the cover.
The breakfast was poor at best. They said there would be eggs and there wasn't. Just cereal and waffles and fruit.
In their defence they did refund us $16 because they said their was things in the breakfast that weren't. We would not stay again for $170 (with taxes). We were reminded to always look at the room first before deciding.

I stay here with work a few times a year and my last experience was less than acceptable. The beds, tv's, bathroom, air conditioning/heating are acceptable and the owners seem nice but I found the front desk lady exceptionally rude. She repeated the nights I was staying and when I replied 'sure' she pointedly countered with 'the answer is either yes or no' then asked if I had had a long drive, which I in fact did. I was too stunned to reply. Customers, especially those who repeatedly stay several nights shouldn't have to deal with this nonsense when all I wanted was some pleasantries and to be able to check into my room. I also found an empty granola bar wrapper on my window sill...so that gives you an idea of the level of cleaning. The breakfasts are never really any good and always very busy. The waffle iron was broken on the second night I stayed there (likely from overuse) and several unhappy looking couples and families due to this.

I have worked for many years in the customer service industry so I was disappointed in my experience. Time to switch to one of the newer hotels or cute motels?

We stayed one night in a room with 2 queen beds. Beds were very comfortable with quality pillows. Rooms were clean and included a fridge and microwave. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. With a continental breakfast included, this was a great value option and highly recommended.

This lodge is on a unique property which has it's own fire pit, and BBQ area you can take advantage of. That's something I have never seen before offered at a motel. I've stayed here several times over the years and they're always updating and changing things. The staff have always been amazing to us, and more than willing to help with inquiries or eateries if you ask. They still have a river that runs through the back trail. It's definitely not your typical lodge, it has the Golden outdoors theme. The hot tub and sauna were great after a day out rafting. Highly recommended if you want something different, clean, and unique.

I was driving west on TransCanada Highway and had to stay overnight at Golden, BC. I had no advance reservation, so I just walked-in into at least 4 hotels with rooms and Travelodge offered the lowest price. it was a clean room. The breakfast was okay, but I was surprised to see that boiled eggs were not part of the menu (I may be wrong, but I thought it was standard in the breakfast!). The front desk lady was very polite and welcoming, completed the check-in formalities quickly.

Solid all around - staff, cleanliness, comfort. Breakfast service was very convenient, although the hours could be extended a bit more. Pool was a nice touch, although could use a touch up here and there. Overall, great bang for the buck. I've stayed in much higher end hotels and left much less satisfied than here.

Room Tip: If you've got kids, get a room on ground level. Also, be sure to set your alarm clock to make s...
