Reviewed 23 October 2016 via mobile

We booked into unit 95 for a week in mid-September.  The unit consists of 2 bedrooms in the upper floor together with a washroom with tub & shower.  The large king bed was very comfortable.  


Unfortunately the upper two bedrooms are poorly insulated from nearby highway or road noise.  We heard cars and trucks until about 11:30pm and again starting at about 6:30am.  We asked to be changed to a different suite the next day.  Whiski jack told us that all of their 2 bedroom units were booked for the week.  


Heating in the unit is very good.  Together with the gas fireplace we were cozy in the unit.


Other than the nighttime and early morning noise, unit 95 is well stocked and appointed.  The kitchen has a good supply of pots, pans, cups, bowls, plates, utensils, and cutlery.   There is a second bathroom with shower on main floor.


The in-unit coffee maker and supplied coffee is terrible.  The coffee made is sigificantly worse than low end fast foodchains.


The outdoor heated pool and hot tub are excellent.  The underground parking was easily accessed and close to the unit.  One needs to climb 3 flights of stairs to get to bedrooms from parkade.  Unit is not wheelchair friendly.


Other than cheap coffee / poor quality coffee maker and road noise, this was an enjoyable stay.

We used a RCI exchange and got lucky to get a 2 bedroom the week we wanted. We stayed in room 88 in the F building. There is an underground parking spot assigned to the unit; however it is tight. Make sure to unload your stuff at the front before parking, otherwise you will be walking up the stairs with your luggage; which you will also have to do if you are on the other floors. The bbq was great and we had everything we needed in the condo. They give you a starter pack with coffee, tea, laundry detergent etc. The washer/dryer came in handy since we were able to bring less clothes and wash them before we came home. This unit was private and we had views of the mountain which was nice. The condo had plenty of towels, pillows and a pull out sofa. There are 2 full bathrooms which works out great if there are more than 2 people. The master bedroom has a tv and there is a tv downstairs and there is a cd/dvd player. It is satellite so sometimes you lose signal. There is also free wifi which is great. The hot tub and pool area is clean and it is warm...great after a long day of hiking. We also went to the farmers market for fresh veggies and fruit on Sunday and walked to Nesters market for fresh fruit..BC blueberries... yummy! The grocery store/BC liquor store and village is all within walking distance. This is a great location and we would stay here again!

If you are an RCI member you need to check in at Creekside - Whiski Jack's office, not at the condo. Just make sure you stop at Creekside first otherwise you will have to drive back.

Room Tip: ask for #88 or views of moutain

We stayed in unit 128, which is a one level lower floor unit. We were concerned that we would be uncomfortably warm due to the fact that there is no A/C, and the outside temp was in the mid 30sC. We were pleasantly surprised to find it very comfortable. There is a triple-headed fan in the living area and another table-top fan in the bedroom that keep the rooms at a comfortable temp.

A previous reviewer commented that the queen bed was hard and uncomfortable - I found it fine - firm but comfortable.

The unit was very clean.

Kitchen is modestly equipped. It is time to change out the round bottom frying pans that make it difficult to cook more than two eggs at a time. The toaster should also be replaced - the cord and plug get dangerously hot, as do the sides of the toaster. Coffee maker was adequate. No blender. No wine glasses. Garburator is extremely noisy.

Bathroom is small but clean. The tub/shower combination is jetted. The shower head is mounted very high - great for tall people, not so great for shorties. There is no hand-held shower head. We had some issues with the toilet not flushing completely several times, but there was a plunger that came to the rescue.

The living room has a sofa bed and one tub chair. The patio has two plastic chairs. No barbecue.

The unit is conveniently located near enough to the pool, but not close enough to be noisy. Pool and hot tub were clean. Pool deck is sadly lacking in comfortable seating.

The unit is equipped with a stacked washer/dryer.

There is secure underground parking.

The location is excellent - close enough to shopping and dining, but far enough from the noisy after-hours intoxicated pedestrians.

Because it is a wood-frame building, it is not very soundproof. You can hear toilets flushing, people walking above you, etc.

I would re-book.

I stayed with my husband and 2 children. Walking distance to everything. Groceries and coffee (starbucks, blendz) across the street. Very clean and the pool/hot tub was great. Very quiet area. Would definitely stay here again next time.

We stayed in #128 which was nicely placed in the center of the complex, near the pool and was quiet due to the location away from the roads. Parking is quite convenient with the underground garage and stairways up to the condo. The condo was equipped with all the basics. We used the laundry daily to dry towels. I would suggest that beach/pool towels be added to the condo so that the bath towels didn't have to be used. The only downfall to the condo was the queen bed in the one bedroom. It was very, very uncomfortable and hard. I didn't sleep well and woke up with pain in my shoulders and hips every day.
