Default KH accommodation

Hi All

I'm looking into accommodation for KH this season, probably mid/late december. Anyone have any first hand experience at any of the places in the area, either ski-in/ski-out or in and around Golden?

Any accommodation is fine, i'm looking at 1 bed for me and the gf, but if anyone has anything else to contribute that would be good.

Thanks

VRBOs on the hill are good, but at that time of year they will be expensive, and most of them are pretty big and sleep way more than two people. There is accommodation above the lodge that I've never stayed in but may fit the bill?

The drive up the hill from town isn't bad - less than 20 minutes. There are some newer hotels/motels along the transcanada, and some motel's in town that will be cheaper than anything on the hill. Golden itself isn't a very exciting place though, so load up on plenty of booze before crossing into BC.

There are a few dive motels in town that are just fine if you are gonna be spending the majority of your time on the hill.

Mary's Motel (half has been renovated)and The Rondo are two I have stayed at first hand. They aren't classy but they are clean and have fridge and microwaves. looking at about 60-70 CAD. The Econolodge is right at the bottom of the road to the mountain. All are a quick 15min drive up to the hill. You can also stay just off the highway at your classic Super 8, Travellodge, etc.

I have also had good luck staying on hill booking through vrbo.com but most of them are for 4+ people.

The Glacier Lodge and Palliser are nice and on hill, but they are $250+ a night. I've stayed in both and they are really nice on hill places.

Good luck!

I've stayed at the Rondo two nights during the summer. I can confirm that it was clean, but don't expect up to date decor.
Would recommend it for the price. Summer rate was $55 a night IIRC, which makes it the cheapest place I've ever stayed in BC.

If you're going for a week, then you can probably do reasonably well thru VRBO. Lots of nice places and quite a few under $1000/week (about $150/night) Before you say that's too much, just consider what you'll spend on restaurant meals for 2 for 7 days. You'll also be hard pressed to find a lot of eating options in Golden.There is also a B&B in the resort village (friends stayed there last year).

While the Glacier Lodge and the Palliser are nice (everything is pretty nice at the hill), you can do much better (either less $$ or way more for the same $$)
