A great place. Pretty quiet in the off season. Bar down stairs is awesome and drink prices are bloody decent.


Friendly and accommodating staff. Quiet in the off season. Great location. Beds weren't the most comfortable, but did the job well. Could hear the bar music from downstairs faintly through the walls/floor. Clean, organized, hospitable. Would definitely return.

Second time at the raging elk and while it's certainly not fancy, it's clean, welcoming, within my meager budget and the staff are phenomenal! Will definitely be coming back again :-)


Staff were cordial but nothing more. Facilities were very well cleaned and maintained, I am beyond impressed at how clean this place is. They are not joking about their rules, read them carefully because they are followed to the letter. They will be in your room at 0930h asking if you're staying. It's a bummer that the common room is closed at night, because I am a night owl and there's nowhere else to go. Also, none of the computers work and WiFi is spotty in the rooms but good in common areas.


Cheap, clean, friendly, and situated in an awesome wee mountain town. Bloody good time!
