We stayed at Crandell because of the Bears Den room, and it was better than we expected. The king bed is super comfortable, the jacuzzi worked great (although run some cold after you're done with the hot- the tap burned my leg. VHS Movies in the room were a nice change of pace. Good selection! Check in and check out... More

We had to make a sudden change to our reservation, and the front desk person was very accommodating and took care of us without hesitation. We spent two nights here in this little rustic treasure. The lodge was just as we expected; it even had a gas fireplace to heat the room which was nice and cozy as it was... More

We had two nights at Crandell Mountain Lodge and it was great! The room was small and cozy, the bed was comfy, and it was all that we needed at a very reasonable price. It was a short walk to the shops and restaurants, and parking was right out front. Perfect for the two of us!

Clean, roomy and a nice kitchen. TV doesn't work but we survived. It's a nice town. Expensive to eat in. We don't know what other hotels/motels there are what they're like some we can't really compare Crandell Mountain Lodge.

We stayed at crandell mountain for 2 nights while visiting Waterton lakes. It was a great place with a small kitchenette-perfect for us to eat breakfast in the room before heading out for the day. Bed was comfy and even though window faced the street it was quiet. We were within walking distance of just about everything in town. Price... More

This lodge reminded us of a European chateau with all its charm. The staff on all shifts were friendly and willing to assist with our needs. Our room was located on the top floor with attic type ceilings which gave it a wonderful lodge feelings. The room was decorated with a homey feeling and the beds were divine! We only... More

Well located at entry to town but that's all for the positives. Small cramped rooms, old fittings, no view but worst of all the bathroom was off one of the bedrooms which the other bedroom had to access through this bedroom. Finally the wifi was terrible. I would try somewhere else.

We spent 2 nights here. The place has the feel of a cozy bed and breakfast. Our room was charming. The location was perfect. Walking distance to everything in the town and an easy drive to other sights in the park.

This lodge is in the center of the small town so literally everything is within walking distance and there's a lot to see! If you like to browse gift shops, this is your town! The town itself is kind of old-fashioned but pretty and you feel at home right away. One real downside to this lodge is that the promised... More

Gorgeous location, both Waterton and where the Lodge is located once you arrive at the Park. Rooms musty smelling, older building, need to be aired out better. Wildlife just out your door as you are next to a piece of the lake. Small rooms, even as a couple I would feel a bit cramped. VERY small washrooms, just enough room... More
