Default Revy lodging & ticket advice

Looking for deals/ recommendations on lodging and lift tickets.

Link from their website has sandman Hotel with both at $110-120+tax per person.

Anything cheaper out there that's not a hostel type?

2-3 people, 4 nights & 3 days on the slopes.

I've used this website lots. There's 6 or 7 places in Revy that sleep 4 for $185+/night total, not per person.

I stay at either the Days Inn (bit expensive) or the super 8. Both usually have lift ticket lodging deals. Keep in mind though that the super 8 can sell out so dont leave it until the day before. One good thing about the super 8 is that they have a hot tub and pool. Very important if your old like me and cant handle 7 hours of riding knee deep pow all day!

Never done VRBO before. Do those rates include taxes? Also how much cleaing up do you have to do?

I've priced out 2 hotels and it would cost $395 or $435 per person for 4 night and 3 lift tickets.

At the cheapest price a VRBO room would have to come in at $46 per night per person with 3 of us assuming we bought 3 day lift tickets from the resort at $212.

Each VRBO is different, contact the owners. You can probably count on 12% HST. And the owners may have tickets deals too. Don't forget...VRBO's are generally not hotel rooms, they're condo apartments, chalets, houses, etc. You don't have to eat in restaurants for every meal as well.

Most of the cleaning is about what you'd expect: load the dishwasher, throw the used towels in a bathtub or the washer, put the garbage and empties out in the proper places, toss your leftovers, etc.

BTW Costco and various other places have good ticket deals. I seem to remember Costco was about 50-60% of the Revy on-hill price for a 2 day pass. Maybe a local could post $$?

That's the problem with Revy...accommodations are pricey. Supply/demand. There's just not much there.

Check out the Swiss Chalet Motel. It's a nice small place, very clean, free continental breakfast, close to downtown (10min walk from bars), and the free ski shuttle to RMR picks up right outside it's doors. You can get a room there for $75-$100.
Sandman also has the shuttle pick up very close to their hotel, so does Days Inn.
A $100 per person per night deal with ticket included works out the be the same as splitting a $100 hotel room amongst 3 people and then buying your tickets separately at the hill - same total price.
If you want to be closer to the action check out the Regent Hotel - it's right downtown, has all the amenities, shuttle pick up too, but not sure about prices or ticket deals.
I think you can find lift ticket discounts at liftopia.com (could be another site, can't remember)
What about renting a spare bedroom in someone's house? There is some of that out there, and you'd have people to party with and show you around the mountain. Check out The Stoke List http://www.thestoke.ca/list

So it looks like we are down to 2 and a hotel room is the least expensive choice. The Swiss Chalet looks nice and gets really good reviews. My only hesitation would be the proximity to the rail line and a lack of hot tub. For those that have stayed there is the train noise a big issue? I know we can go to the aquatic center but there is nothing like a quick soak after riding all day.

Train noise can be an issue if you are in one of the rooms facing the tracks. Otherwise it's not an issue at all (my GF worked there so this is first hand information). You'd just have to request for a good room when you book.
If you're looking for a hotel with a hot tub, the best options would be the Sandman, Days Inn, or Nelsen Lodge. Sandman is cheapest (2 pools / 2 tubs), Days Inn medium price range (1 nice but small outdoor tub), and Nelsen Lodge of course is pimpin.
Pretty much every hotel in town offers free passes to the Aquatic Center (which is actually really good for a town that size) and lift ticket combos.

Thanks for the info. Have to think about that a little. My inclination is to avoid chain hotels versus smaller private places. The Nelson Lodge looks great but is not in the budget for this year.

If you were taking your GF boarding for a few days in Revy which place would you choose (with Nelson off that table)?

Thanks.

I forgot that there's also a brand new Best Western in town... so that's probably the next best thing to Nelsen Lodge (there's also the B&B thing)
