Recent guest reviews

As Golden was halfway, more or less, to Calgary we stayed here for one night. Very good accommodation. Efficiently run. Nice swimming pool and hot tub. Rooms clean and well equipped. Breakfast a bonus and was included and was really good - good choices including hot options and a pancake maker which I have never seen before! Would definitely recommend this hotel!

Well maintained Holiday Inn Express with everything you expect from HI Express. Good sized rooms, good breakfast (including fresh fruit), plenty of parking. Located at the edgy of town on TransCanada highway on the way to Rogers Pass/Revelstoke. Only downside is that it's not very convenient for restaurants.

Win-win for large families. Nice pool, good sized, clean, rooms and FREE Breakfast. Full breakfast too - not some stingy continental breakfast. The Pool and hot tub were great, and the rooms were modern and comfortable. The staff was accommodating, friendly and professional.

We pulled into the Holiday Inn Express for a night driving through Golden en route to Alberta. The room was big and clean, the hotel seems to have been recent. The price was very reasonable, and we had a short but amazing stay. We had a nice breakfast (Lots of choices). Would definitely stop there again!

Comfortable rooms. All super modern with all the conveniences that you would want — big bed, large TV, plenty of hot water, small safe, lots of room to spread out. Free breakfast offered a lot of variety. Indoor pool and hot tub were clean and easy to access. Very nice people at the front desk. Good value. The only thing I would change is the internet — they call it high speed, but it was far from high speed. My phone was faster.

I stayed here for 10nights in early October and I was so well looked after. The room was spotless, the bed so comfortable I didn’t want to rush out of bed in the morning.All the staff, from the welcoming staff at reception to the house keeping staff,and the breakfast staff. Thank you for a great stay, I will return. This was my third time staying here. I would just like to add, that despite there being many tour groups staying in the hotel, the staff were very professional and worked very hard to make things very acceptable for everyone.

Awesome motel . Clean ... Nice staff. Good breakfast .. Recommended it to all. Nice, quiet, good beds awesome pillows! Just no newspaper ... not a biggie . Well priced. Good value It’s quiet so you can sleep ! Georges J

Very comfortable room, and the hotel has laundry facilities, plus a pool, although we didn't visit this facility. Usual HIE style breakfast, but adequate. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is not far of the highway, but a short drive to Downtown Golden.

Wow wow wow! Never have we been treated so poorly but thanks to Glenda(?) we have had our worst customer service experience EVER! Beyond ignorant and rude when we checked in. Asking her if Golden had a Starbucks left me feeling like I was a criminal. We travel regularly for work and stay in hotels monthly. When we went down and complained about her on check out we were SHOCKED to learn we weren’t the first and I’m sure won’t be the last to be treated so awful by the woman the night prior. My CC was cancelled due to fraud in Mexico from a week earlier (I didn’t find out till the Sunday night when I tried to book hotel, the Asian woman here said it was fine and totally was great to us). So when we checked in we knew we needed a cash deposit which was fine, when this B said “fine but you’ll need to pay 200$ and can you even? And I can’t give you a receipt since we don’t do this” we were left feeling like we were being judged on our alternative look. (We own a tattoo studio and my spouse is the lead artist) We traveled 20 hours in the past week by car as we were touring and at a convention in Calgary, the last thing we needed was to be treated like that. The rooms were comfortable but we woke up to a very loud high pitched noise which was unpleasant. I’ll be checking to see if this lady is still employed before we ever considered booking there again.

I stayed here one night while in the area visiting the national parks. It is a much better value than Banff or Canmore. It looks like new, everything worked well, and I slept well. The room was clean and functional. I did notice the carpet in the hallway could be cleaner. I would stay here again if in the area, it's probably the best option in Golden.
