The Griz Inn was built in the 1980’s and the accommodations reflect an 80’s look. But people coming to Fernie to ski are not interested in staying in a well-appointed hotel room. They are going to ski all day. They do not live in the suites or hotel rooms. The kitchen facilities in the suites are totally satisfactory and so...

Dear Arthur, Thank you very much for taking the time to review our hotel, I am glad you agree that The Griz Inn represents a good value option on the ski hill. I will pass your comments about the restaurant to the owner. In housekeeping, we do have a policy that if there are items left on a bed that...

We stayed on night here after switching from another lodge on the hill. We stayed in a one bedroom with loft. The room was spacious, had a great view of the ski hill. The room was clean and had everything we needed but decor is very very dated. It kind of made us laugh. It was fine though. Convenience was...

Dear wmc484 Thank you for taking the time to review the Griz Inn. While it was unfortunate that our pool and hot tub were closed during your stay, we are happy to hear that you found your room spacious and clean as well as the ski-in, ski-out access convenient.

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...

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...

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. The beds were very nice but it would have been nice to have a king instead of the double/queen. The staff at the Griz...

We've stayed here numerous times over the last 15 years. There are hotel rooms and different sized condo units. We've stayed pretty much in all of the units and have never had any issues.

Overall the room was good (4/5), had 2 large bedrooms, full kitchen, living room and dining area. However there were a couple of downsides: 1. The Air conditioner was extremely loud 2.
