We booked an overnight stay for the 1st August 2024. This booking was made on the 30th August 2023 (11 months in advance) and a confirmation email was received. Last week they contacted us to advise they had no rooms available for our chosen date (over two months after booking) and that they were cancelling our reservation. We suspect they have resold our booking at a higher rate. So this is a warning to others looking to consider this hotel.

We were here for a wedding. The hotel is old, worn and not managed well. There is no lighting for makeup. The bathroom lights were dark. I did get maintenance to switch out the lights. They blinked. When we arrived it was hot and this AC wasn’t working. We had to turn it down to 63 F to cool down the room. It’s an old AC unit in the room very noisy. The shower stall leaked all over. No safe. The door was so hard to open from the inside - big safety concern. The staff was hard to understand and not very attentive. I would not sat there again. Not worth the price. This is a dump.

The hotel is in an industrial area of Squamish and from the outside it doesn't project well and the adjacent liquor store doesn't help. Inside it's nice though and the front desk person was very friendly and helpful. The pool and water slide are great and kids love it. Worth an extra star just for that.

We checked in on July 28 with a small, short-haired dog (Boston Terrier). Front desk told us that no dogs were allowed on the tops of the beds and that if there was any evidence of a dog being on top of a bed (fur, hair?), that there would be a $200 levy against our credit card. This seems very unreasonable to me, it being a "pet-friendly" hotel. Our BT jumps on the bed all the time at home, without it being a problem at all. Have stayed here previously, 2 years ago, and this was not an issue. Pillows are lumpy and uncomfortable - better to bring your own. Electrical outlets are in inconvenient places; to get the standard lamp in the corner to work, had to reroute the cord in behind the mattress to an outlet between the 2 beds. Since this hotel moved out of the Best Western chain some years ago, the standard has deteriorated. The last time we stayed, 1 of the 2 elevators was out of service for months.

I had an extremely unpleasant interaction with the manager, Magali Bliss. She is unprofessional and rude. She needs to move on from the service industry or be provided with customer service training.

1 night stay. Everywhere is pricy and busy during the ski season but this place was on the lower end. Booking service was smooth and friendly and same with checkin and check out. The pool/slide and hottub were great. Rooms were clean and with ample space for the 3 of us. Wouldn't hesitate to book here again when passing through.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel at the end of September. It is now the end of December. And I’ve noticed a charge on my credit card of almost $250. In September when we stayed there I paid $171 for the room and that included pet fees and taxes. Now, three months later I’m getting a charge well over what I already paid and they are refusing to refund it. They have asked me to email them a picture of the charge to my card which I did. I then called the hotel itself and spoke with the staff and they told me “there’s nothing they can do about it” that they had started a new system and they couldn’t find my reservation in September. I explain to her that’s not my problem that they switched systems. How is this not an example of credit card fraud? I didn’t sign off on these charges I wasn’t even aware of these charges were coming and they’re still refusing to refund them.. I was told I’m Not the only one. And I will be taking legal action

Responded 13 Jan 2023
Thank you for choosing Mountain Retreat Hotel & Suites for your stay and sharing your feedback with us. Our hotel did upgrade our reservation system at end of September to be able to efficiently serve our guests. Unfortunately the new equipment was having communication problems with our merchant service provider system and therefore, the authorized credit card transactions were not being processed at the time. We have gone through a lengthy process with our merchant service provider and have finally got the situation resolved in December,2022 We kindly ask that you please check your September to November credit card statements and you will notice that the amounts that you authorized in September when you stayed would not have been charged. Should you see any duplicated charges on your statements, please do not hesitate to send the proof (copy of your statement showing the duplicate charges) to our hotel and we will promptly address the issue with the credit card merchant service provider who will correct the charges or credits. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and very much appreciate your understanding.

Upon arrival, we were told that the hotel was overbooked and that an alternative room with a king-size bed was available. The room looked as though it had not been cleaned with dirty, stained linen, and only 2 towels. I asked housekeeping if they could clean up and empty the garbage, however they did not speak English. I asked the front desk and was told that housekeeping was not offered in this particular hotel. The shower tap was hanging off the wall, however, we were able to take a shower . Would not stay here again. Too dirty! and unhygienic

This suite came with a King size bed and 2 pull out couches. The King size bed was very comfortable. The mattresses on the couches, however, were of very, very poor quality (pretty much all springs and little fabric. There were no replacement mattresses available. As a result, one adult slept on the floor and the other adult finally slept on one of the couches after it had been built up with numerous mattresses pads and blankets.

I was trying to book a night at this hotel through a third party app. I mistakenly chose tonight for my check in date instead of the actual date I wanted in August. I made the booking at 10:30pm. I immediately called the third party booking site who attempted to get the hotel to switch the date for me. They refused to do this and would not allow a cancellation either. They essentially put my $200 in their pocket and walked away. I would think twice before booking here. While I recognize that my booking was not refundable, this took place within a few minutes of booking so it’s not like they lost any business because of it. I’m not sure this is the kind of business I’d want to support in the future.
