This was our second time to stay at the PVL. I have mixed feelings about it this time. The room in general was clean. The bathroom smelled like mold and urine however. It was clean (no visible signs of filth), but I think the floor grout, etc. needed a good antibacterial scrub. We were startled awake at around 2 a.m. by some drunken people banging on the doors, including ours. Which isn't the hotel's fault but still not a pleasant memory.
The bed was comfortable, although a queen, which is common for Canada. It's a good hotel for the location and cheaper than staying in Whistler, although the room was about $30 higher than last time. Also they added a $40 "incidentals" fee to the bill when we checked in, before we'd even incurred any charges. The desk clerk couldn't clarify what the fee was exactly for. Thankfully they removed it when we checked out. Also, cleaning up the kitchen area is not included in the maid service... it's an additional $35 if you leave the kitchen area dirty. Places to eat are truly scarce in Pemberton but really expensive. They have a new convenience store there and there is a McDonald's which we used for breakfast.
I'd recommend this hotel to a friend, but with cautions.
