B-rock The Fireside Lodge is easily the best place that I have ever stayed at whilst in Whistler. It is impossibly cheap ($23 per night) has great facilities and cleanliness with better hospitality then somewhere that you would be expecting to pay $123 per night! It is located about 1.5km walk from the Creekside gondola (which you can catch a bus to and from the corner of Nordic Dr for $2.50 or $2 if you pre purchase a book of 10 tickets). Note that this is the Fireside Outdoor Recreational Club which means that it is a members club interested in skiing mountain biking etc. They let the public stay in their club for a small fee so that they can get better facilities with this money, the Fireside is great if you would like to ski all day have a relaxing dinner at night with some very friendly people and have a good night sleep so that you can do it all again the next day. If you are after a party atmosphere I recommend you try looking at the H.I Hostel or equivalent.
bowyer1 A charming b and b run by charming couple. Alan was extremely helpful, very informative about local area. The house had a good homely feel to it, with a lovely lounge and patio area where you could relax and read a wide range of Alans books on cooking and wines. It was worth the stay to experience the breakfast particularly on the last day a cheese souffle to die for!! 10 out of 10
Sander Very clean, great facilities (industrial strength kitchen, good WiFi on each floor, large lounge) - but seriously lacking any kind of atmosphere. I frequently see people complain that HI hostels have no soul, and with this specific one I'd sadly have to agree. No one staying here seemed interested in talking to anyone else, the lounge didn't bring people together but rather had them all sit far apart, and even kitchen talk was very limited. Together with the location being a bit inconvenient, next time I'd probably research some different places to stay at before deciding if I'd want to go for this one again.
