For a small town, Golden has an abundance of hotel accommodation, including chain hotel options with mountain views.
Most of the approximately 1,000 rooms are conveniently located by the Trans-Canada Highway. There are also a couple of B&Bs in town along with a backpacker hostel.
A wide selection of lodges provide comfortable accommodation and personal service. They also provide bookend accommodation for visitors heading to remote backcountry lodges.
Kicking Horse Mountain Resort
Kicking Horse Mountain Resort offers a variety of lodgings, ranging from standard hotel rooms to self-contained luxury condos. The largest accommodation facility is located at the base of the Golden Eagle Express gondola. One of the smallest, and perhaps the most exclusive suites, is accessed via the gondola and perched on the very top of the ridge.
Backcountry Lodges around Golden
There are several remote backcountry lodges in the mountains around Golden. Most are accessible only by helicopter. For people who want to really get away from it all, these full-service mountain hideaways are the perfect base for activities such as ski touring and hiking.
