    Revelstoke Lodging

    I'm going to be in Revelstoke for a week in early February and looking for suggestions on where to stay. I'll be with one other dude and we'd like to stay somewhere cheap. Suggestions? Experience?

    Revelstoke Lodge is decent and about the standard price ($90)/night for two. Swiss Chalet or something like that is nice, clean small rooms and a decent breakfast for the same price. There is a Samesun Hostel there but have no idea on it. Haven't had much luck with B&Bs. Found them pricey and not that good at returning calls and such. DO NOT stay at the Gateway. It is a grim place, filthy, housekeepers smoke and they don't offer what they advertise on their website.
    It's not so much the model year, it's the high mileage or meterage to keep the youth of Canada happy

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....

    I've stayed in a few Samesun Hostels, but not the Revy one. I found them to be universally filthy, noisy, party zones that are poorly managed - Good if you want to party, but bad if you want to ski. But maybe the one in Revelstoke is different. I'm pretty sure I stayed in Revelstoke Lodge the last time I was there (years ago now), and liked it.

    I agree with Shaggy.

    I have stayed at the Samesun in Revy, and there was only 1 usable bathroom in the basement for about 15 beds and the kitchen was pretty basic.

    I'd recommend a chain motel that includes breakfast like what Whyturn suggests. There's a few to choose from.
    Goal: ski in the 2018/19 season

    Poppi's guesthouse is great. Its a hostel, but all the rooms are private. If you want a hotel room, the sandman has the cheapest ski and stay packages in town.

    Revy has been on my short list for a while... Anything of note that is not listed on their site? Anything other than Samesun to avoid?

    It's not the cheapest @ $159, but the new Best Western Plus is really nice. Two hot tubs,pool, free hot breakfast and best of all, a free downtown drunk shuttle.

    +1 for Swiss Chalet. Stayed there last February for exactly a week. Clean for sure, simple but adequate breakfast (get there when it opens, it fills up fast). Also, if you don't have a vehicle the town shuttle stops right next door. We rode it every day up to the mountain. Also, not too long of a walk (10 mins max) to downtown at night.

    Jealous you're heading there!

    +1 for Poopi's Check out http://seerevelstoke.com/ for more info on lots of options. Stay downtown if you want to go out or have a drink at all, the cops here are brutal and love impounding rental cars.

    The hostel is your cheapest option, but could wear on one with a weeks worth of stay, but for cooking and crashing also has two computers, its ok for the soldier in us all. Coupled with two dollars at the municipal swim pool you get the hot tub, and a great shower, plus the local chicas who love to swim. Parking downtown after the sun sets can be a true trial.

    Lots of good advice. Thanks. We are going for for an avalanche course, so the ski/stay deals won't pan out quite as well for us. I'm also not sure where the course is taught, but I'd like to be close. Anyone know?

    Haven't seen this thread since last year. We ended up staying at the Monashee Lodge. They gave us a decent rate on their downstairs kitchenette. Pretty small and basic room with two full or queen size beds and a small kitchen. It was nice to bring our own food and cook and it saved us a bunch of money overall. They have a hot tub in the main building (but limited hours) and wireless internet. I might book something different if I was only going to be in Revelstoke for a night or two, but I thought the Monashee Lodge was awesome for our week plus stay.

    Bump...

    6 of us are going to be in Revelstoke for a few days in early February and are looking for lodging. Checked out several of the above recommendations and was hoping to get more suggestions if anyone knows of anything new.

    Already looking at airbnb and vrbo.

    The powder springs worked for us - there might be slightly cheaper places, but I haven't found a cheaper one that allows dogs.

    It's not particularly nice, but it's conveniently located, you get free passes to the aquatic center, there's free breaky, and the Last Drop is right there.

    We have used the Powder Springs Motel a couple of times. Pretty cheap that includes breakfast and also reduced Revy lift ticks that about equal a liftopia purchased ticket. Good location in the downtown for restaurant options and wandering. They have their own bar/restaurant that can get pretty wild.

    Check out The Cube Hotel. They are centrally located in town, include breakfast and passes to the rec center.

    My wife's the Gm of the sandman, might be able to swing a discount for you if it's not a peak holiday.

    Powder springs halved their rooms this year and are doing long term rentals now. the cheap accom pool is getting shallow .

    I was wondering why there were hardly any rooms available for most dates at Powder springs. Guess I'll have to scout out some other hotels.
