    Holiday Inn Sunspree - Whistler

    Is this an OK place to stay at? Never been to Whistler trying to plan a trip and this place is available. I want to be close to the bikepark and lifts...

    If it's the one I'm thinking of, it's basically brand new and right in the village. Probably a 2 minute walk to the lifts.

    Make sure they've got a place to lock up your bikes though...

    True dat, and you're just upstairs from the "Boot Ballet"!!

    Another cheap option (not as cheap as the Shoestring) is the Coast Hotel. They often have deals that are $89 per night with 2 doubles in the summer.

    Not as swank as the new Holiday Inn and not as rustic as the Shoestring.

    This is where I stayed in Sept. And this is where I will stay when I go again. It is a great place. Nice rooms, full kitchen, washer/dryer, close to the lifts, and a secure lock up for bikes. Four mt.bike stars. Do it.

    i think that i stayed there before during the winter. If its the only Holiday Inn, then i have and it was nice. Again, if its the one i'm thinking of its real close to the lifts, and right near the public dj park at the bottom of the mountain. Basically all of the hotels in Whistler village are close to the lift, was there last summer. I think thats the holiday Inn that i'm staying at when i go there this summer. O ya, and basically all hotels there have bike storage, because they all need ski storage (usally just a room) so in the summer they let you use that room to put your bikes in. Have fun. I'll be there later June, early July, when you goin?

    Coast Whistler is where I stayed last year. They didn't mind if I rode my dirty, muddy bike throught the lobby to my room.
    On a map it looks like it's far from the lift but really it's only about a 5 minute walk.

    Don't be dissin' Holiday Inn's - there's one right near the base of Seymour, and it's got a good pub in it too! The joint is nice, and all you really need for a biking vacation is a bed and a shower.

    Bad news for fan's of the Boot Pub and Shoestring. Word on the street is that it's going away.

    I'd say its fine. I stayed at some place in my Gravity Camp that wasn't that nice.

    Its Whistler. How much time are you really gonna spend in your room? The only time I spent in my room was sleeping which was still not that much. I'd say anyplace is fine. Just make sure to bring your bike into your room. Don't trust the places they have for bikes....

    Stoney Creek from now on for us. Close to the lifts and hot tub on the deck.

    Ive stayed at the Deer Lodge before too, which is nice.

    The Holiday Inn is a.....well Holiday Inn. We stay in the one at the bottom of Semour too and it is real nice for the price. Usually we just stay at the the LYNNWOOD.

    True dat, pirate. Riding, eating, err....beverage tasting. Then sleeping. Bring recoverite and ibuprofen. Whistler was made for rockin'.

    EBextreme...LOL...."rustic". Yeah. The diagram of male anatomy in permanent marker on the shower curtain was "rustic". The wives were not impressed to say the least. And the ballet. I can honestly say I haven't seen worse. But it's cheap. I'll be back fo sho. Ha!

    I stayed at the Shoestring lodge last year. Not bad for the price. However, if you are staying with the lady beware. Mine did not approve.

    Not to get OT but Jubilee (or anyone else), curious about activities in the area for the SO. Is there any if they don't ride / hike?

    We didn't bring our bikes, and I rented one for the day. Was there for race support.

    Yeah, my wife got a spa treatment and drank wine.

    But she did bring me sushi for dinner!
