Historical Traveller Reviews of Nita Lake Lodge Hotel
I would not stay here againfrom Wanderlust_Bee
We are very low maintenance travelers, but they did not have what was promised (listed on the website): we had to ask for robes, parking was more $ than listed & the worst view in the place.
We were there for the first warm weekend of the year (80F/27C), for the first night with our window closed the room never got below 74F/23C. This could be a problem during the summer.
The room was decorated nice and the mini-kitchen was great, but it was too dark (not enough lights). The TV sound system w/ universal remote needs help, many channels listed could not be accessed, could not adjust vol w/ the remote & the TV color was terrible.
Great hotelfrom RSinNL
The hotel is situated next to a lake. It is about a 45 minutes walk to whistler village or 10 minutes by shuttle. There's a free shuttle available.
The rooms are very good, large flatscreen tv, fire place, large bathtub / shower. Small kitchen available also.
The restaurant is good, but exclusive and as result rather pricy.
Increase room service menu (add more choices of food)
t wait to go backfrom LoloSF
What a great find!from salleeanndevon
We really enjoyed the location and were thankful to not be in the main village as it looked rather 'artificial' to us. We didn't miss the apres ski etc as we found the bar in the hotel to be wonderful as were the always attentive bar staff. We ate one meal in the fine dinning restaurant as it was my husbands birthday, great service again but would probably not eat there again as we are vegetarians and the menu choice was limited although the staff did bend over backwards to accommodate us.
There is a car service that takes you into the village we didn't use this as there is a lovely walk which begins from outside the rear of the hotel and takes you around the edge of the lake, its about 3km and took us about 40mins.
I should say that we are not skiers so we were more than happy to be away from the concentration of people in the village, we enjoyed the scenery and tranquility of the location. There are some good bars and restaurants aound creekside and if you do walk into 'the village' its easy enough to get the Creekside bus back for $1.50.
Good, but with a few issuesfrom tvegas
Good - Rooms a fair size for a studio, with useful amenities like a small 'fridge, microwave, coffee press and an ipod compatible radio/alarm clock.
-Bathrooms are lovely, great shower, heated flooring, giant tub.
-Small seating area, comfy and snug infront of the fire.
-Staff friendly and keen to deliver good service.
-Shuttle to Whistler village or anywhere in the immediate area. A luxury Toyota, the longest we had to wait for a lift was only 20 minutes. Lots of guests use this service as the lodge is 5km away from the main resort and if you do not have a car, walking is not an option - no pavements. That or the bus.
-The main bar area is very nicely done - big comfortable chairs, a huge 2 sided fireplace and a view overlooking the lake. Barfood tasty and service excellent.
-Free internet access, a retractable cable is provided in the room.
-The hotel is right next to one of the 'Mountaineer ' train stations, which will be very convenient during the summer months if travelling by train.
-Great access via the gondola onto Whistler mountain. Ski back down to Creekside village via the Peak to Creek, a thigh burning 5.5km trail.
Not so good - I stayed in a room which had a connecting door. The people staying in the neighbouring room were not very noisy at all, but could still hear them quite clearly conversing when near the door.
-The furniture whilst nice and new as the property has only recently opened, was already looking a little worn in our studio. Chips out of the wardrobe and sink surrounds and also the drawers had been removed. Also, whilst it is nice to bring your pet on holiday, I agree with another reviewer that this may spoil the rooms if not well maintained.
- While it is nice to be in a quieter area, Creekside is a bit of a sad cousin of Whistler-Blackcomb. Vacant stores in the main shopping area and the open stores themselves are very limited. It is obvious that the money has not been spent in Creekside in comparison to the other two areas.
Overall a good property at a good price.
The Spa is due to open at the end of May we are told, which sounds as though it will be a fabulous addition to the hotel.
Nita Lake Lodge was a luxurious experience at good price (for now)from Doors2Manual
Nita Lake - loved this place and will go againfrom Wetcoaster9
The bar is great with a big fireplace and couches to sit nearby. I think the prices will go up once the hotel is complete, but we'd definitely stay there again.
Exceptional place to stayfrom Yorkshirebloke
I wasn't made aware at the time of booking, but the place had not opened, and had only been open three weeks when we arrived. They were still working on the far end of the lodge the whole time we were there, although you hardly ever heard any noise from the builders, but you did see an awful lot of them around the place, still not enough to put me off.
Three of us stayed in a two bedroom suite, while the upstairs bedroom was very spacious, with a shower you could have fit six people in with ease, the downstairs bedroom was medium sized, but not cramped by any means, but it did not have a door to close it off and add a little more privacy, as there were three adults. If the downstairs bathroom had been any deeper, it would have had to have it's own lifeguard, there were louvre shutters that opened across the bedroom with a fantastic view straight across the lake.
The downstairs bedroom lead onto the balcony, or in winter, the extra large refrigerator. We were expecting a little more from the kitchenette, but it was barely big enough to make toast for breakfast, it consisted of a kettle, toaster, French press, microwave, sink and a 3 foot high fridge, all this in the space of one wardrobe. The living area was a little on the compact side too, with only enough seating for 4 people in a suite that sleeps 6, and the 42" LCD TV set too high in my opinion, (around 6 foot) to view properly from 4 feet away. There is high speed wired internet access in the rooms, and what I thought was a really good addition, was an ipod dock, there's also WiFi connection in the lobby area, although I could not get my mobile phone or ipod to connect.
All very minor gripes really, but if a bit more thought had gone into planning, this place could have been nigh on perfect.
I didn't notice what facilities they had for business users, but i guess that's not what you go to Whistler for, is it.
There is a complementary shuttle service that Nita Lake provide to take it's residents to and from anywhere in Whistler, it's offered on a first come first served basis and operates till 10pm every night.
They offer a dry cleaning pick up and delivery service, and for people who want to do their own washing, there is a laundry area on the parking level, just make sure you have have plenty of Dollars or Quarters as there's nowhere to get change except reception or JC's Deli. JC's Deli by the way is a great place to sit and have a breakfast sandwich and a coffee at reasonable prices.
The overall feel of the lodge was quality, amazing use of wood, gave it that log cabin feel, coupled with contemporary furnishings and paintwork, worked well together.
The staff were fantastic, especially Becky, very pleasant, polite and helpful, and made you feel like you were the only ones there.
I was told by reception staff that Nita Lake Lodge has a pet friendly policy allowing pets in the suites, and judging by some reviews on this site about dog hairs and carpet stains at other Whistler hotels with the same policy , in my view, this policy has the potential to spoil a gorgeous hotel.
I will be reading reviews about Nita Lake before booking again, but for now this place is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Top Local Tips for Whistler
Stay in the Village Stay right in the village...it's worth it to be close to everything.
Paying for parking The hotels charge for parking (about C$15) and may have free shuttles. At peak season parking may be hard to come by.
Can-ski bike rentals you can rent SUPER nice mountain bikes for only $10/hr. You also get a helmet. There are tons of trails so this is great for any level biker! Also, we biked for an hour & 15 minutes and Can-ski only charged us for one hour - they were great!
