4/5 Value for Money.
Stayed here en-route from Jasper to Whistler. This place is cheap as chips…very good value for money. We came in the summer, but it has a real Ski holiday identity. The rooms have a fully equipped kitchen, the bathroom is reasonable and the beds are comfortable. The only downside is there is no safe in the room. Decor is a bit dated (there is a VHS player in the room) but we had a good time and would recommend a stay here if not just to rest your head.
Front lobby staff was amazing. Hotel location great, next to everything.
Very noisy due to construction outside hotel. Started every day at 7am. Rooms are ok but dated. No air conditioning. Make sure you get a fan. House keeping was ok 2 days out of 3. 2nd day they never showed up. Resort needs a pool.

Not at all what I expected
If it weren’t for this property, I wouldn’t even have known that Sun Peaks, BC existed. I was expecting it to be more of a luxurious even 3 star hotel. But really, its more of a 2 1/2 star hotel.
The lobby area is nice and inviting but the room was a complete turn off. I like the layout with the but it was terribly drab. Walls painted in bland beige and burgundy with cheap paintings of the wild west which seemed really out of place in Sun Peaks. It made it look like a motel rather than a hotel. The carpet was filthy in and outside of our room.
The front desk staff was really helpful and friendly and did offer to make any suggestions as to things to do and places to eat. The woman who checked us in was really nice as well. We informed her that one of the bedside lights was burned out and she went up and replaced it herself while we were out for the afternoon.
There is a nice hot tub that is open till 10pm that was very relaxing but I wish they had a pool as well. A fitness center is right inside next to the hot tub, but we didn’t use it. It did look like it had some nice equipment though.
The bathtub had very high sides and it was hard for me as someone who has trouble climbing in and out of things, to get in and out to take a shower. The tub itself was jetted, but the side looked like it had been fastened with screws which were coming out. Definitely an outdated bathroom to say the least.
The location of this place is amazing, just walk right outside and you are near the ski lifts. It was only a short walk to the lifts that were open for hiking and biking, as we were here in July. I suspect that is the best thing about the hotel and what keeps it in business.
Housekeeping was terrible. They left us with no extra soap or towels and the bathroom wasn’t nearly as clean as it should have been. We did voice our concerns upon check out and were given 20% off of our stay.
All in all a disappointment and the next time we come to Sun Peaks, we will be staying somewhere else.
Short Notice Sun Peaks Visit
We had originally tried for a Cariboo weekend at 108 Mile Ranch but the forest fire evacuation forced use to cancel that. We called Coast Reservations and were able to book a mountainveiw room on extremely short notice!
We have stayed at different properties in Sun Peaks on many occasions but this was the first time here. We enjoy the village atmosphere and outdoor activities; well golf! Our room faced the mountain and we were able to watch the go carts race down the mountain track!
The only thing to complete the transition to an All Season resort would be to consider air conditioning or larger windows that open to allow for some cool mountain air.

The hotel is very nice but be prepared to share it with numerous tour coaches. The rooms are quite spacious but not well sound-proofed so you can hear people talking in the corridor, doors banging and the tv from next door. Convenient to shops, restaurants (as well as the one on site) and free parking.
