We went for a last-minute ski vacation to Fernie and since everything sensibly priced was booked we looked for accommodation in Sparwood (30km to Fernie). This hotel served our needs. We arrived late in the evening and the check-in was a breeze. The room was clean, the décor was a bit dated, but provided us with the necessities to rest and get ready for our ski trip. (Between toiletries there is not a shower cap). There is always free coffee in the lobby. On Hotel’s web site it seemed that they offer a free breakfast as well (It did not have the word surcharge beside breakfast), but that was not the case.
There are a few areas for improvement. 1) Have a light in front of the “closet”, so one can see easily the items there. I had to use flashlight. 2) Have a light switch close to the room door, so one can turn on the lights when entering the room. In this case one has to get to each individual light to turn it on/off. 3) From the 4 parts of the AC/heater 2 were blowing cold and 2 warm air (Outside was minus 19, so room 118 was difficult to keep warm).
I would recommend this hotel for its location with respect to Fernie, cleanliness, free WiFi and limitless coffee supply.More
