“Great Divide Lodge”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2012

Hotel is good for the price. The room we stayed in was sparse but adequate for the cost. Fifteen minutes from Lake Louise and one half hour from Banff. The hotel staff were friendly and the food served at the hotel was tasty. Room was a bit noisy as the Trans Canada Highway runs right by the place and trucks could be heard through out the night,

Room Tip: Rooms on the back maybe quieter but remember it is along Highway one, Canada.s busiest highway throu...

The best thing about this motel is the surrounding scenery..overlooking the river and forested mountains. Service in the restaurant was a bit slow, as was registration. The room had no air conditioning, but thankfully had a fan as the road and train traffic was too loud to keep the window open. The room needs better lighting. The beds were comfortable, and bathroom necessities plentiful. The rate seemed high for such a spartan room; however, it's near Lake Louise and a high tourist season.

I waited too long to book lodging and chose the Great Divide Lodge based on availability. The pictures on their website made it look great and when I called for reservations, I took the parade to the "newly remodeled" room with a view of the mountains and lake. The view was of a small lake on the other side of the highway and the surrounding peaks but the room was definitely not updated other than fresh paint. The bed was squeaky and the mattress was very uncomfortable. The room got stuffy and the only means of cooling it off was to turn on a small fan and open the sliding door and risk letting in the mosquitoes. I did not get much rest.

We booked in for 1 night on our way down from Calgary to Kelowna. Room pictures on the website look nothing like the room you get when you arrive.

What greeted us was a very small room with 1 double bed and 1 twin bed, each pulled up against the wall with one bedside table between to share. The only lamp for the room did not work, no phone in the room to ask for assistance so walked downstairs to "reception" and was given a lightbulb to change myself (at $99 a night thought that was the least staff could do). The bedside table had names carved in it, paint in the walls are peeling. Bath tub was rusting and there were dead bugs on the floor.

Staff made us pay upfront for the room and are very rude.

Stay away!

This hotel is run-down but clean, the staff is friendly and accomodating and it seems like they are trying hard. However, I have to give it a poor rating because there are just too many things wrong for me to overlook them. The towels are threadbare and there is no hair dryer, which are not fatal flaws. But we ended up starting our day at 5:00 a.m. because the bed was so incredibly uncomfortable and made such loud noises when we shifted position, that we could not sleep. There is no air conditioning but the sliding door to the balcony stuck so bad that you had to lean your full weight into it to get it to budge. The hotel is right on a main highway and very close to train tracks so if the bed doesn't keep you awake, the trains probably will.
