Guest Testimonials

We have been here twice in 2016 so I am writing again because I really do love this place. First time was Spring, second time was for New Years. The front desk staff are always very friendly and helpful. I find the rooms are clean and tidy when we check in. Yes, the decor may be a little outdated, but to be honest this is kind of what we like about the place. It’s got a sort of charm to it. They have movies that you can rent downstairs at the front desk for no charge which we utilized this trip. The pool and hot tub area were nice and clean again and not that busy which was great since there was 5 of us. Love the loft as the kids have their own space that way with their own TV and DVD player and full sized bathroom. This is the only place that we like to stay when we go to Fernie.

We and the majority of guests for our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding stayed at the Griz Inn. It was good to be very close to the Rusty Edge where the reception was held. The different room configurations were great for friends and family and groups.The rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. Lots of people enjoyed the hot tub. The Griz Inn worked well for us and the wedding guests. Thank you!
