Bad, bad and a little less bad...
Reviewed 2 days ago

It’s a pet friendly hotel, but you don’t expect someone else’s pooch hairs all over your clothes... It was on the carpet, bed skirt and sofa!
The noice from the neighbors and the people that walk by your room, isn’t either something we enjoyed...
The restaurant is sooooo weird! No hostesses, just seat yourself and order online! The venue itself is like a cafeteria (a bad one) and cold in all the meanings. If you get the good idea to then go eat in your room, you receive your food in containers in a paper bag. That is the new room service! For me unacceptable....
We ended up getting breakfast at the hotel next door and we left 2 days earlier.
The rooms are nice though!

Great location - surly staff and bad food

Good points - guest room, fitness facility, location and ski rental staff.

Bad points - staff could not have been more unfriendly. Food was horrible. Ordering food was worse - had to do it online (painful). Bar closed “at the discretion of the bartender” - which meant closing before 9 every night.

Best hotel in CB!

Elevation was a great hotel, especially for the price. The only negative I can think of is the parking scenario. It'll cost you an extra $20 per day/per vehicle to park there, and space is VERY limited! Other than that, it was a great deal and right there at the mountain base for skiing/boarding!

Great value for a great location!

This is truly ski in/out for a great price. The rooms are spacious, although try to avoid the adjoining rooms due to noise. The staff was excellent when we asked to change rooms. The spa is lovely, and the fitness center seemed first class. The rooms are heated with baseboard heat, so there is no air movement. Things can get a a little stale. The exhaust fan in our bathroom was also broken, so that didn't help.
The shuttle service to town is efficient and easy to use.
I would definitely stay there again!

So convenient to the slopes!

We just happened upon this hotel, trying to stay close to our friends at The Plaza across the street. We were pleasantly surprised at how great this hotel turned out to be! It was very easy to get out to the lifts in the morning. The hotel offered a free on-site ski valet. We discovered a good bar just out the back door that we went to every afternoon. It is close to the bus station with buses into town. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and comfortable with a mini kitchen.
