Golden Village Lodge2.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This hotel has been renovated. Beds are comfortable but unusually high off the floor. Close to the highway but not too noisy. Not very convenient to get to the variety of restaurants in the town. Junctions to cross the highway are a bit confusing at night if you are not familiar with them.
The floor is dusty and and sandy . Front desk service is the worst. They don't even fix or supply hair blow dryer. Don't even apologize nor teying to help and replace it. Just say next time :( ... It smells from the front desk..
A person has to realize that old buildings still get used BUT, be aware this motel is not in keeping with today. We arrived in Golden only to find other hotels not available so in panic and tired we thought it would suffice. The owners have tried to spruce the rooms up but only to have it resemble a do-it-yourself unprofessional project. It just has a sence of being not very clean. A positive is that they tried and the bedding appeared new and comfortable. Everything else in the room was old and very well used. We had to actually shut the fridge off do to the noise to get some sleep. With every thing else the room was priced as high as many of the large chain hotels and there was no breakfast included. Next time we will reserve ahead - our fault.
For $225 it was not worth it. Room 214 The plus: Easy access from highway. Wifi worked well, room was clean. Had new mini fridge with separate freezer component. Water kettle, microwave, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, flat screen TV. Mattresses were comfortable. The bad: The three queen size beds were on custom made platforms, and although the concept was good, the mattresses kept shifting, and all of us hit the platforms at least once. Bathroom seemed unfinished, lacked hanging rack/hanger. Also, fan fixture in bathroom was uncovered, wiring exposed. The kettle was on the table, but where to plug it in, as there were no AC plugs near the table. AC was old, but worked. Cigarette tray was right outside our window. Back window faces a hill that seems like it's going to swallow the whole building, it is very close. Not enough AC plugs. Towels felt like sandpaper, and not enough, knowing there were 4 of us. The in-between: Not a bad stay, but for the price, it should have been much better. If staying in area again, will try another motel, there are several choices nearby.
We rate hotel poor to average. Renovation done, but cheaply. If you want to compete in today's field , you will have to do better. Had the water run 10 minutes before water temperature was warm enough for shower. Floor is very cold, beds are strange, sheet of plywood under mattress?
Comfortable stay; we needed a quiet environment where we could get a good night's sleep and we received that at this hotel. The hotel management went out of their way for our grandchildren to use their pool facilities, even though they were not staying at the hotel. We were a family in need of caring and that's what we got.
This is an older model motel currently undergoing renovation. It was clean and the beds comfortable. There is a small pool which is welcome after a long trip to soak and relax. However because of renovations no breakfast was offered. The room had a Window aircon heater which is old school, but because it, like most other hotels in Golden, is just off the Transcanada highway, helped cover the noise of outside traffic...once you get used to the hum. Wifi was okay to good. The tv was good though limited channel selection. Overall good choice if they don't overcharge...much better than other bargain motels we checked and quite a bit cheaper than newer hotel nearby.
My dad, my sister, and I stayed for one night here. The rooms decor was modern and the beds soft but otherwise the hotel wasn't that nice. It was a overpriced, the heater took forever to start, and the door to the balcony was broken. Honestly if it was twenty dollars cheaper I would have given it 4 stars but at the price it is now I expected better! For a night it was adequate but next time I'm in Golden I'm going to go to another hotel.
Me and kids loved the place I will definitely come back again for the price under 100$ a night and you are on 10-15 drive to the Kicking horse resort . Swimming pool and hot tub is excellent after a long day of skiing, if they only have CD player in the room so kids can watch movie but other then that it was clean and friendly place, thank you
Average hotel. Nothing spectacular but for the price we were happy. Beds & pillows were comfy, and the rooms were relatively clean. (One room had cigarettes and beer on the balcony from the previous tenant and room service neglected to clean this so that was kinda gross). Otherwise, easy check in, and was suitable for our quick weekend away when we only needed a bed to crash.
