Very comfortable and relaxed environment. Folks at the front desk were super-helpful, especially Dakota, without whom we would not have had coffee one morning. The breakfast isn't exceptional, but it's good enough.

Hotel and room were great. Clean and staff polite Coffee is not free all day where breakfast is served! Breakfast was so disappointing. Nothing left at 8:15!!! After a group of skiers just left. Only toasts and one kid of cereals. Waited until 9:00 and still the same except some oranges were added in the fridge. The poor lady working...

I arrived at 330 to be told check in was at 4. I left my number and decided to come back, after asking for an early check in. After receiving no call, I came back at 3:59 (to be exact). I went to the front desk with my sister and the front desk assistant greeted us with "welcome back ladies"...

Hi jbean, Our sincere apologies for a less-than-warm reception when you checked in. The holiday season is quite busy for us, and it is often hard for us to accommodate early check-ins during this time. Our hotel is renowned for having friendly, personalized service and we’re sorry to hear that you don’t seem to have received it during check-in. Overall,...

To start, we stopped in a bit early the day we were supposed to check in and we were informed that our room was to be ready in 25-30 minutes. We had plans on going out and enjoying ourselves that day so we decided to wait , unload he vehicle and then go out for the day. 2.5 hours of...

Hi Justin, We typically have designated parking areas for trailers, but were dealing with a major heavy snowfall when you arrived, during which we were still clearing this area. Our apologies for any miscommunication or confusion during check-in. We do our best to accommodate the needs of our guests, but we also have to make sure that guests don’t have...

Kids love the water slide and the outdoor hottub and dry sauna. We enjoy the family room a lot and the friendly service. Wifi is a little bit slow though, but it does not hurt us since we already have lots of other entertainments. Definitely we'll come back.

The Stanford Resort was perfect for me and my daughter! We enjoyed the town of Fernie and the great restaurants that the front desk suggested. My daughter burned off some energy in the pool and had a great time on the waterslide. Beautiful rooms, friendly staff...

We stayed at this resort while in town for a Hockey Tournament and we loved it! Our rooms were basic, but clean and had everything we needed including a fridge and microwave.

We had a blast. The hotel is clean and is just finishing a face lift - which the workers did with minimal disruption. We had a downstairs conference room for two nights for the parents to use and kids. The water slide was a blast - it must have been as the hockey team was like a train up and...

Pros: We had a spacious room with jacuzzi, it was clean, had a fridge, coffee maker, microwave, comfortable bed and a nice little balcony. Two TVs, one of which is pointed at jacuzzi and another at the bed. Two options for heating is a great idea, it meant that we didn't have to listen to the loud heating unit and...

Hi Dave, we're glad you enjoyed your stay. We will certainly take your comments about our Keurig machines into consideration as we look for ways to reduce our waste and carbon footprint. Concerning our continental breakfast, it doesn’t offer the same selection that a full restaurant breakfast would, but most guests find the selection to be ample for a quick...

This is an older hotel that could use some updates. It is clean and has a great pool and water slide. Friendly staff and good breakfast. But the price is high for the room quality and furnishings. The 13 inch TV in the honeymoon suite is an absolute joke. WHY have a TV to watch while soaking in the tub...
