Glacier Mountaineer Lodge
We stayed in the Mountaineer building for 3 nights over the august long weekend. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the suite and that it was fully kitted out. We were able to purchase groceries in town and at the Kicking Horse General Store (which was located in our building) to fuel our breakfasts & lunches. The room was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. It was a warm weekend in Golden but we didn't find the room too hot at any point. The ability to have the windows open with the screens (the bugs were out!) was fantastic - it let in a cool breeze throughout the day/night.
The lodge is a little ways out of town, but it has everything you need to stay put for a few days in you wanted to. We went for dinner at the CopperHorse Steakhouse and had an incredible dinner. Highly recommend going there while you are at the lodge.
Go stay at the lodge and enjoy the step away from the city & coziness of the accommodation.
Oh - and the hot tubs are great in winter or summer!
We had an amazing stay at the Kicking Horse Resort in Golden. Our King Suite was fantastic and the views are spectacular. It was great to have a full kitchen as well. The bed was super comfy and everything was nice and clean, and the balcony was perfect for enjoying the fresh mountain breeze.
No visit to this amazing resort would be complete without a trip up the Gondola. The views, the food, the whole experience was unforgettable. We would also highly recommend the Double Black for coffee and breakfast. Can't wait to return again next time!
We were a little disappointed in the accommodations especially considering the price we paid. Our room was very dark, depressingly dark. The toilet was so low to the ground. Like it was a toilet for a small child. There wasn't enough towels in the bathroom or kitchen towels. Nor was there a cutting board in the kitchen. The place seemed very dated and in need of some renovations and updating. There was what looked like dog hair on the couch and it just didn't smell or feel or look very clean. When we arrived at the hotel the front desk staff didn't even look up to greet us. They seemed very uninterested that we had even arrived or in helping us. The tv in the bedroom didn't work. We ordered food from the pub and it was barely edible, we threw our desert in the garbage (apple crisp) it was awful. The elevator was disgusting. There was actual spit on the floor of it and it smelled awful. The whole place is dark and run down looking. While we absolutely loved Golden and the views and the mountains and had an amazing time going up the Gondola we were not impressed at all by the hotel. We did however have excellent service from the wedding coordinators that we dealt with while we were there. They were very professional and helpful. Very friendly as well. As for the hotel...it seriously needs some updates and we are upset at the price we were charged to stay there. We expected a little more.
Rooms were nice and I especially liked the phantom screen on the door, so it could be open but no bugs. Comfy beds, quiet rooms and nice decor. We decided to stay an extra night!
Kicking horse resort is beautiful. Lots of gorgeous views and the gondola ride is a must!
The rooms and lodge in general have not been kept up and many things are in need of repair or updates.
