We were taking our first trip south of the border since before Covid and were driving from Calgary. Picked this hotel based on location (3 hour driving distance from home and only 2 hours to final destination) and the reviews. We left late in the day and arrived around 330pm. Really friendly and easy check in and then round the back to our ground floor room. We had a double queen bed room and both beds were extremely comfy. The room was spotless with good bedding and good tv channels etc. Bathroom had a very deep soaker style tub which we didnt use but it looked very inviting. Nice and quiet overnight stay before moving on in the morning. Its on the main highway through town but rooms are at the back and we didn't hear a thing. Approximately 1 minute drive north of hotel there is a Starbucks, Tim's and Mcdonalds so all your varied coffee requirements are covered! We ate in town at The Brickhouse bar. Excellent flatbread and huge bowl of home cut fries. Staff were very friendly and it was a great dining experience for two tired travellers. Next trip south we will definitely be booking a stay at this hotel.…
This hotel is awesome. It truly makes it feel like a home away from home. Fantastic communication with staff, very friendly, great “bang for buck”. Very clean and highly recommend. They have a wicked hot tub and are super happy to help with any of your needs.
Simple, clean accommodation in a good location. The staff were very helpful. The hot tub is great to soak in after the days activities. The only downside was the fridge was too small for even one person to keep breakfast and lunch provisions cool.
Lovely hotel - clearly renovated and well-maintained. Quiet despite being close to the road, and the room had all of the amenities we needed. Bike rentals were a nice perk, although we didn’t take advantage of this. Good covid protocols in place. We’ll be back!
I follow SVL on Instagram and have been wanting to stay there for sometime. I finally decided to book a weekend in a tiny home and I was so excited. Before I booked I checked their COVID-19 protocol and it sounded great. I’ll start with the bad... Upon entering the tiny home it was tidy and looked clean. Out of an abundance of caution, we grabbed our bleach wipes to wipe down the high touch surfaces. Everything seemed fine until I wiped the railing from downstairs to upstairs, it was filthy (I took the wipe to the service desk and showed her, but didn’t take a photo). Of course after this discovery, we didn’t feel safe so we used about 20 bleached wipes and cleaned all of the surfaces - this is where we discover that the white cabinet doors are not clean (visibly) and the table was still dirty after several wipes (it’s a porous wood surface so it is hard to clean). We then washed all the dishes. I went and spoke to the gal at the desk and she was very apologetic. She mentioned that she would let the cleaning supervisor know. She asked me if she could do anything but at this point I’ve already cleaned the place; and I’m not the type of person to ask for things so I said no. The good... Before the cleaning...When I checked in they only allow 1-person/family inside at a time. Check in was smooth - they have you hold up your ID to the plexiglass as well as the credit card you entered online. You do have to sign a couple forms but they have a clean pen and used pen bin plus a large bottle of hand sanitizer for use. I was offered some dog treats for my fog and the gal was very friendly and informative about where we could fine dinner for the evening. There are 6 tiny homes surrounding a communal fire area and outdoor seating. There is ample parking and the outdoor area is well groomed. There were 2 adults, 1 pre-teen, and a medium sized dog. We managed to set up our dog crate beside the stairs and it wasn’t too intrusive in the space. I don’t think I would stay for a week with that many bodies but for a weekend or even 3-4 days it would be fine. The inside of the tiny home looks exactly as they depict it on Instagram...very cute. The location is right off the highway so there is some highway noise and you do hear the trains at night. That being said we didn’t fine it too bothersome (and I’m a light sleeper). Everything on town is an easy walk, I think downtown was 15-minutes. There is a smokehouse, a sushi restaurant, and The Curry Bowl within steps of the Lodge. Surprisingly, I would stay here again, however I would probably call and let them know of this experience so that they would ensure I didn’t have to play maid upon arrival.…
The hotel room was clean and renovated nicely. The only concern is the pet friendly aspect. Us and another couple booked pet friendly rooms and left the two well behaved dogs while we went for dinner. When we got back we were told the dogs were not allowed to be in the rooms unattended. They only knew they were unattended when staff saw us come back and the dogs came out excited. This is not something we were aware of as it was not in the email confirmation. For the second night we had to keep the dogs in the car which we did not feel comfortable about. So be mindful if you bring your dog to this hotel!
We made many trips to Fernie BC this summer for the incredible mountain biking in the area. We needed a place that was close to the great pubs and restaurants in the city, as well as comfortable accommodation for ourselves and our bikes. Snow Valley Lodging was my choice for every trip. The Lodge is mountain bike friendly. The staff are super friendly and knowledgeable about the local bike trails. The rooms are modern, beds are super comfortable and the rooms are quiet. I couldn’t ask for a more perfect place to stay while in Fernie. I will be back next summer.
Stayed here with some friends from out of town and was blown away with how friendly their staff were and how nice the rooms were. They’re not huge but they are modern and clean with direct entry which I really liked. We booked direct which gave us a good discount and whilst we were there made use of the free bike hire and hot tub (Covid conditions for both) We were shown around the Tiny homes and the Penthouse suite which both look amazing, so we will have to bring more friends next time and have drinks on the awesome balcony and patio. Great little place and I will get more of my friends to come stay so I can stay too!
We really enjoyed staying in a tiny home unit - clean, simple and comfortable. The owners and staff really took good care of us and even let us borrow two bikes to explore the beautiful surroundings in Fernie. Highly recommended!
The tiny homes are wonderful. Very comfortable, stylish and clean. The attention to detail was beyond my expectations and both the loft bed and the pullout bed were very comfortable. The shared common area both inside and outside was perfect for our group and we loved the fire pit as well.
