Clean budget motel, quiet location, spacious room. Staff was friendly. Easy check in and out. The room has been renovated. I can see the air conditioner in the room would be noisy when it's turned on. Fridge was noisy in the middle of the night when the motor was kicked in, so if you are a light sleeper, you'd better turn off the fridge.

We stayed one night here before flying into a backcountry lodge the next day. The room was just OK. The very tiny bathroom had been renovated so felt quite clean although do not understand why such a large toilet was installed - it took up valuable space and was really too big for the small room. The bed was comfortable but shorter folks needed a footstool to get into it. And my biggest complaint was why were old tattered mattress pad covers used - they did not fit and hung down on the sides of the beds. And the sheets - again did not fit at all. So yes the price is good for a night but otherwise look elsewhere. I am being kind when I indicate it was an “average” experience.

Thank you for your feedback. Shower heads were purchased in 2018. Everyone has an opinion on style and design and we respect yours. Drain on the tub is standard. The beds are built on slightly higher bed frames to prevent pets from jumping on the beds. Our pool is fully operational, however sometimes there is a need for updates. We will address all the issues you mentioned.

We booked by telephone the day before our arrival. It was made clear that our room rental was non-refundable on our credit card. We arrived in pouring rain to a very professionial reception being assigned a large clean renovated room with two comfortable queen beds. The rate charged was very reasonable for this popular tourist area.

Monday April 17th I booked a room on Expedia. Yes it was late at 12:30am but the lodge phone was still answered and he Expedia app still worked. The only reason I used Expedia is that when we arrived and the highway was closed so we needed some sleep till the highway opened at 7am. I pulled up to the motel and called the number 250-344-5996. An employee (he told me his name was Malik) answered and said he wouldn't check me in until 3pm later in the day and that there was no way I was able to book a reservation for the night of the 17th as it was already 12:30am. I told him Expedia was till allowing me to book so he said he would look for the reservation and if it was in the system in 5 minutes he would send someone down to check us in. When we spoke 5 minutes later he advised me that Expedia overbooked their rooms so I was not getting checked in and could deal with Expedia about getting a refund. In a 76 room motel there were only like 5-8 vehicles there, when I looked on Expedia at 1am they still allowed to book for the 17th and said that there were 5 rooms left at the price shown.
Never have I ever been refused check in at any hotel/motel/inn/etc. in all my years and thousands of stays, no matter what the time especially when being prepaid. He could of cared less that we were at the door and possibly had nowhere to go and that we had paid for our room, he was awake and apparently being paid to do his nighttime job which I would think would include check ins. He even went as far as to tell me to to go find lodging at one of the Golden Village Lodge's competitors to figure it out. I was beyond shocked and disgusted. Not only will I never try and stay at this establishment going forward I will be telling any and all of my family and friends from BC & AB (most of which travel through Golden all the time) to never stay at this establishment. Be careful as you may experience the same type of service when using Trip Advisor or anyone....

Sincerely disappointed and disgusted,

Went here cause the price was good and the reviews we read sounded. Great. When we went to check in, first of all, the pop machine wasn't working. Then went to the room, there was coffee but no coffee machine. The telephone wasn't working, and the tv and internet was not working. Went to the front office to complain about the tv and was told they would send a tech in a few hours. Not good. Went to the Indian restaurant on premises and was told the oven wasn't working so menu was restricted. Was so disappointed wanted our money back so we could leave but they wouldn't. Finally asked for another room which was okay. The beds were hard and noisy everytime you moved. I don't know who writes the reviews but do yourself a favour, spend a little extra money and stay somewhere else.

The stay was good. Things are a bit dated but the room was clean. Lamp didn’t work and wifi was a little slow where were two things that were a bit annoying. Fine for a night, no major issues and given the good price, it wouldn’t have been worth spending more to stay elsewhere,

This hotel was perfect for our short stay in the mountains. Clean and recently renovated rooms. Beds were very comfortable and lot of room to lay out skiing clothes to dry. Would definitely stay again.

Amazing stay and Hockey friendly!

The beds and pillows were so comfortable. The kids loved the pool and the hockey rink. The staff was so accommodating and even helped us out with some forgotten things. Would absolutely stay there again.

Travelling East after a visit in BC. Not easy to find an affordable room in Golden. A clean inexpensive room. A good choice for an overnight stay. Very reasonably priced for Golden BC. We will stay here again.
