Old school 50s type motel. Exactly as advertised. Friendly and clean. Was able to park motorcycles by door ao we could keep an eye on them. Room was small and so was the shower but it was all we needed.
Close to down town and all stores and restaurants. Waterton is a marvellous place

It's an ideal location permitting us to walk everywhere in this wonderful community. It's well maintained, has comfortable beds, very clean rooms and has great staff that make you feel at home the minute you drive in. We'll be back!

Ok room but not much to offer besides a comfortable bed. I could barely fit in the shower and I am not overweight. No air conditioning so it was very hot in the room. If you are out all day then it is decent for the money.

This is the way motels used to be, clean and small, with lots of interaction with other travelers like at a campground. If you long to relive those days, this is the place for you. If you desire a newer property with modern bath features and updated layouts and furnishings, this is not your place. No room fridge, micro is in the common area and the rooms are quite small. It is very clean and the owners are very nice people.

This was our second stay at Bear Mountain, the experience was great right from check-in on through. The units are older so a bit cramped but our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. We had a one bedroom unit so there was a place to put the gear so it was out of the way. If you are looking for something fancy with lots of amenities this isn't for you. If you want to bring some of your own food and make some of your own meals the place is fine. It has the basics (couple pots, frying pan, toaster, plates, cups, bowls, cutlery etc.) and also a couple BBQ's you are welcome to use.
The only drawback was the kitchen tap dripped and the maintenance guy was away for the weekend so we had to be creative to prevent the dripping sound from being an issue at night but that was easy to deal with. All in all it was a great stay.
