We went to this hotel for a wedding, chose this place based on price and will never do that again. First off we tried to check in around 9pm and the office was closed and all the door were locked. There was an intercom that we pressed to speak with someone to let us in. They were very rude and... More

Great service, great location, and beautiful mountain views. We were very happy with our stay, and appreciated the friendly staff. Our condo was clean and well equipped and met all of our expectations. We especially were pleased that our small dog was also welcome. Would certainly recommend.

This worked very well for our group of 52 people. It was a school music tour to the Kootenays. Kids cooked in the rooms. The Rusty Edge, restaurant beside the GrizInn worked great for our evening party with the big group!

Simone was so friendly and made sure our stay was comfortable. She made sure we got exactly what we wanted. The hotel is a bit dated but it was very clean and you couldn't go wrong with price, it was very affordable. Topped off with great views of the mountains.

We did a last minute booking with The Griz Inn. It was actually what we expected. The room (101) was clean and it had everything you needed, a well equipped kitchen.

The Griz Inn was built in the 1980’s and the accommodations reflect an 80’s look. But people coming to Fernie to ski are not interested in staying in a well-appointed hotel room.
