We stayed at this somewhat remote lodge at the last minute due to bad weather conditions for driving. The lodge has a hostel type room with 2 bunk beds and private bathroom. We did not have anyone else in the room. The room was adequate, clean but could us a couch to sit on. The lodge itself had a bar...

We found a great package which included our lift ticket as well as one night. We had the king bed room and it was ok. The bed itself was amazing so after a long day of riding it was awesome coming back to that. The room itself though was very small and there is no phone or fridge. Also no...

We went there for a Valentine's day mountain getaway. The hotel looked nice, and the staff were friendly, but it was the bed that made our stay unforgettable. Our night was indeed sleepless -- we were tossing and turning, but the bed was merciless and tough. I ended up sleeping on the couch. However, their restaurant was pretty decent --...

We stayed at The Great Divide Lodge for the weekend while skiing at Lake Louise. It was about 10 minutes away, as the hotel description stated. The Hotel itself is older, but fully functional. Warm rooms, comfortable beds, perfectly functioning ammenities. One of our favorite features was the game room/fireplace room opposite of the restrautant on the ground floor. The...

I was looking for an inexpensive hotel to stay in while skiing solo at Lake Louise. Found this hotel online. It is small. Room was very small BUT it was just me. The bed was very comfortable, the room was spotless, the sheets soft (not hard and starched to death). The free shuttle to the hill was perfect and the...

We stayed here for 3 nights during a long tour of the rockies. Unfortunately, we were booking late and many other places were already sold out leaving us with few options. This hotel is located right on a main road across from a big beautiful lake. The lake view is lovely and does make up for the busy street. The...

We chose this over the hotels in Lake Louise just on price. It's located outside the town of Field and has the highway out front with a lovely lake view for the rooms at the front and finally the train track before the trees and mountains take over. Having read the reviews and been informed of the potential issues we...

The place all around it is beautiful, but the hotel is terrible. Very dirty and very old. The food in the restaurant wasn't good. The only thing that saves it is the location close to Lake Louise. I would not stay here again.
