Simone was so friendly and made sure our stay was comfortable. She made sure we got exactly what we wanted. The hotel is a bit dated but it was very clean and you couldn't go wrong with price, it was very affordable. Topped off with great views of the mountains.

Stayed in a one bedroom with a loft. Great place to stay if you like being close to the hill. Room was clean and cozy. The bed was comfortable and clean. Had a nice little kitchen with stove, dishwasher, dishes, and fridge if you wanted to do your own cooking. The restaurant downstairs had really good food. The pool and...

We did a last minute booking with The Griz Inn. It was actually what we expected. The room (101) was clean and it had everything you needed, a well equipped kitchen. Yes, the bedding and beds needed to be replaced. In fact, the furniture and bedding/beds were outdated and probably needed to replaced. There was plenty of room for my...

Thank you your constructive feedback. I am glad you appreciated our amenities including the full kitchen in your unit as well as the pool and new outdoor hot tub.

Reviewed 9 March 2016

The Griz Inn was built in the 1980’s and the accommodations reflect an 80’s look. But people coming to Fernie to ski are not interested in staying in a well-appointed hotel room. They are going to ski all day. They do not live in the suites or hotel rooms. The kitchen facilities in the suites are totally satisfactory and so...

Dear Arthur, Thank you very much for taking the time to review our hotel, I am glad you agree that The Griz Inn represents a good value option on the ski hill. I will pass your comments about the restaurant to the owner. In housekeeping, we do have a policy that if there are items left on a bed that...

We stayed on night here after switching from another lodge on the hill. We stayed in a one bedroom with loft. The room was spacious, had a great view of the ski hill. The room was clean and had everything we needed but decor is very very dated. It kind of made us laugh. It was fine though. Convenience was...

Dear wmc484 Thank you for taking the time to review the Griz Inn.

We stayed in the two and three bedroom condos. They were clean, well organized and fairly comfortable. Good location on the hill. Well equipped kitchen. Decent price. We would probably stay there again based on those things, but if you're looking for a luxury hotel this is not it.

Nice spot right on the hill. Reasonable amenities - full kitchen, ski locker and coin laundry. The pool and hot tub were broken so the option was to drive to another hotel for that service. The room was not cleaned on the second morning but you could get extra towels etc at any point. No option to store luggage for...

Passing through Fernie without any expectations but saw the ski resort and turned around. Checked in to room 202 and found it to be an exceptional, but small, condo with a great view of the mountain. The only thing lacking was the bed that REALLY should be replaced. Scott at the front desk went above and beyond with recommendations for...

We have stayed at the Griz many times over the years. This time we stayed in a two-bedroom suite. Although the suite is in need of an upgrade it was clean, spacious and served our needs. The beds were very nice but it would have been nice to have a king instead of the double/queen. The staff at the Griz...
