We stayed in the two and three bedroom condos. They were clean, well organized and fairly comfortable. Good location on the hill. Well equipped kitchen. Decent price. We would probably stay there again based on those things, but if you're looking for a luxury hotel this is not it.

Nice spot right on the hill. Reasonable amenities - full kitchen, ski locker and coin laundry. The pool and hot tub were broken so the option was to drive to another hotel for that service. The room was not cleaned on the second morning but you could get extra towels etc at any point. No option to store luggage for... More

Passing through Fernie without any expectations but saw the ski resort and turned around. Checked in to room 202 and found it to be an exceptional, but small, condo with a great view of the mountain. The only thing lacking was the bed that REALLY should be replaced. Scott at the front desk went above and beyond with recommendations for... More

We have stayed at the Griz many times over the years. This time we stayed in a two-bedroom suite. Although the suite is in need of an upgrade it was clean, spacious and served our needs.
