The room was OK. I'd compare it to low-end Embassy Suites with a stacked washer/dryer. Almost a small apartment, good place for workers temporarily in the area or for skiers that just want to eat and collapse every night. Everything worked, was
fairly new so in pretty good shape.
We booked a mountain view room with a balcony, expecting to be able to sit outside and enjoy the view. When we checked in we were give a first floor room with a view of nothing beyond the parking lot. I asked for another room and we got one on the 3rd floor in the back.
We guess our room had one of the best possible views from Pemberton Lodge. There is a giant ugly lump (hill) behind the lodge that blocks the view of "majestic mountains" and there are giant electric lines running up that hill. If we stood on one side of the balcony and leaned over, we could see a mountain... so I guess technically there was a mountain view.
There is no food available in the hotel. We were prepared to go out. Our server at Di Carlos (see the helpful hint) told us to try the Big Sky Golf Club for breakfast. Food was fine and the view was terrific. bigskygolf.com
I thought it was overpriced and we had an Orbitz discount which came to total $155 for one night. Good grief! We stayed in some really nice B&B's for that price.

Di Carlos for Italian. This place didn't look great. It was stuffed in a strip center beside the supermarket (and BTW had a great view of majestic mountains!) After checking out the other available places in town (Wildwood, Pony) we decided it looked the most promising for good food. Had a spinach salad with warm goat cheese that was amazing. Much better than expensive restaurants we'd tried. Also the thin crust pizza was very good. Reasonable prices and friendly service. Our server told us the owners are planning to sell the place, so that may change. One of the best meals we had in BC including Brasserie L'ecole in Victoria!
