It was the only place that we could find in that area. We went to Banff and all the hotels around Banff were full or it costs over $500 a night. We have no choice so we decided to stay in Golden for a night. This is a very old motel and most of the rooms were for CN workers. There is no free breakfast. We traveled in August and it was hot, so we want to get some ice from their ice machine, however, there was only one ice machine at this place and it was broken. So we took the ice bucket to the office to see if they have the ice machine in the office, unfortunately, there is no ice machine in the office. Alternatively, they have the travel size cooler with ice in it and the front counter person just used our bucket to get some ice out of their cooler. We don't know if it is clean to put it into our drink or not, so we just used the ice to cool our pop cans in our cooler. We spent over $140 for a night at this hotel, it was cost even more than Holiday Inn (with very good FREE deluxe hot breakfast) in Edmonton. Well, this is the only place to stay and what we can do???
