    Looking for a place to stay in Rossland...

    Anyone here living Rossland? My buddy and I are coming out next week and are looking for a place to crash. Is there a hostel in the area?

    Thanks in advance,

    There's a hostel downtown, and a motel just up the road near the mine museum and gas station.

    Sorry I don't have the names.

    I think Dave, one of the owners of Pacific Rim Paddling, runs a B&B in Rossland the winter. Try calling them and asking. http://www.pacificrimpaddling.com/contact. 1 888 384-6103. He's a good guy, worth supporting his business.

    Was mountain biking in Rossland this last summer and there sure as hell didn't seem to be any budget lodging, even the hostel downtown was freakin expensive for what it was. My, how that town has changed.

    I don't remember the name , but last year around this time we stayed on the hill in these cabins (I posted a pic of the outside, maybe someone here might have more info). I think they are probably original to the hill as they definitely were not posh like all the new condo's that have gone up in the past few years. On the plus side they were clean, had a kitchenette and had ski in access. I think the price might have been something like $130 a night which was comparable to the B&Bs we were looking at.

    Thanks for the info. I might just sleep in the bed of my truck, so yeah, the budget is pretty minimal.

    Try the Red Shutter at the base of Red, 2 beds per room, vintage 70's decor, cheap, good hot tub in the parking lot, good meals.
