We stayed here about 4 years ago to ski at Red Mt. and gave it a good review then. Nothing much has changed now and it is still a good place to stay in Trail. The staff are all friendly and helpful. It has a good hearty breakfast (included) and a great lounge/restaurant area. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet....

Clean, comfortable and quiet. Great breakfast. Overheard agenda boy whining at breakfast about no hot tub and pool. There is a hot tub on the second floor and access to a pool at a sister hotel. Downside is if you arrive late restaurant closes early and attached pub is overpriced.

This hotel is fantastic! Lovely helpful staff, great breakfast included and comfy beds. Despite there being a hockey team staying there at the same time, it was quiet and peaceful. Great location near downtown, could walk to shops.

Service was very good. Average hotel but best in the area. Breakfast was included and was good but not spectacular. We were getting ready for bed and discovered dried blood on the pillow case. I took the pillow to the staff who were concerned but never heard another thing about it.

Great hotel, very clean & updated. Only downside is the rooms & beds are so small. We traveled with our daughter for hockey. The full size beds are tiny and great very comfortable if you're sleeping alone. There are only two room options in this hotel. A king bed with no pull out or a room with two "FULL" size...
