Tucked away between no less than 6 national parks, you will find the beautiful mountain town of Golden, BC. Located in Eastern BC right off Highway 1, a lot of people end up just driving by Golden on their way from Alberta to western BC but that’s a big mistake.

We made this mistake too – many times – and it wasn’t until recently we actually visited Golden for the first time! We loved it so much that we ended up staying for 4 days!

Everywhere you look in Golden, you will see mountains. From the famous Kicking Horse Mountain Resort to Mount 7 and Navvy Peak, you are surrounded by beautiful nature.

That also means that a lot of the hotels in Golden have mountain views – and we’re here for it!

In this post, we have put together a list of the best hotels in Golden BC with mountain views. You’ll find our personal recommendations, user ratings, average price, location, and whether or not the hotel has taken any sustainable initiatives.
