Pet Friendly and Spacious Rooms
We stayed here because we had our dog and we needed a pet friendly hotel. The location is excellent being right in the village – however do not get a room above the hotel patio and bar. The live music is loud and when the drunk people leave at closing it is annoying.
The room had a full kitchen which was nice but the décor is dated and tired. Pretty much a 3 star place.
Review of the Coast Sundance Lodge
My wife and I checked in to the hotel on Sunday, July 18 for 4 nights. We were visiting family in Kamloops and found that we got a better rate in Sun Peaks for the period we were staying. We found the 45 minute drive to Kamloops not to be a problem at all. The hotel is in a great location, right at the base of the village. Everything we needed was no more than a 5 minute walk away. When we checked in we were informed of the $10/day charge to park in the hotel parking lot. We decided to park in the public parking area and this never posed a problem for us. Initially we were impressed with the room but did notice some areas of the hotel could use a refresh, i.e. some areas looked a little run down. We were quite excited to find a mini kitchenette in our room in which we would be able to cook meals in the room and avoid eating out as often. When we tried the stove, we did discover that it took forever to heat the elements up which was disappointing for us. This is was probably the biggest disappointment with our stay. We decided not to mention this to the hotel staff as we were on holidays and it wasn’t that big of a deal for us to eat out. The housekeeping staff were great, always acknowledging us whenever we saw them in the vicinity of our room. We enjoyed the pub in the hotel and found ourselves there every day of our stay for happy hour! One last negative is when we checked out on the last morning of our visit. We noticed that there was no one at the front desk when we checked out around 6:30 am. While loading the car, we left the keys at the front desk forgetting that we needed the keys for access to the lobby. We wanted to get our final bill before leaving. I called the number listed on the door and that person was offsite and said that they would get there as soon as they could. We waited about 20 minutes and decided to hit the road without our final bill. – this was provided to us by email later in the morning. I think there should be someone available on the hotel property 24/7. While our overall stay was mostly positive, these two negative items did put a bit of a damper on our stay. We would probably stay at this property again but would probably check out one of the other hotels in the village next time just to do a comparison.

A Stop on the Road
This is a typical ski lodge accommodation which is heavily used and shows heavy use. The room was clean and well provided for with small kitchen facility but moderate to basic. The room suffered from noise from evening concerts and struggled with parking on a busy evening in the resort. The staff were very friendly.
Spacious, comfortable and a glorious view
This was summer time, and we were in transit from Whistler to Jasper, so this was a one night stopover. What a shame! Sun Peaks proved to be a relaxing, quiet and refreshing break (could be otherwise in the ski season, I guess). Coast Sundance Lodge was possibly the highest quality accommodation we enjoyed in a 5 week trip of the Canadian Rockies and Alaska.
Great value stopover
We stayed here for 1 night as a stopover between jasper and Vancouver. It’s great value and a nice clean stopover. We had a one bedroom suite, with a separate pull down bed in the living room. There was plenty of room for a family of 4.
It’s fairly basic but adequate – there’s no fancy trimmings but they are not charging 5 star prices!
The room was a little warm so we kept the window open, and the fridge was a bit noisy overnight.
We would definitely stay here again if we were stopping over for 1 night. Sun Peaks itself was quiet as it was summer, but all the shops and restaurants seemed to be open.
Driving around kamloops (the other option for our stopover), we were glad we chose sun peaks.
