Waterton park

Hello

First time going to Waterton. Having a hard time deciding on hotel and it’s for a surprise birthday.

Recommendations?

Was looking between Crandell Mountain lodge, bear lodge or Waterton Lakes lodge (more expensive but is it worth it?))

??

Thanks!

FYI

so you got into this with full knowledge are you aware of the devastating fires from last year and the damage it has done to some trails and roads if you planned on hiking?

It will be a different landscape but still worth seeing. One thing to look at is how nature renews itself after a fire rather then the burned out trees sitcking out. and, if hiking you will want to ask which trails will be open before you set off for the day.

Bear Mountain Motel is a fairly basic motel. I've stayed at the Crandell Mountain Lodge - the rooms are fairly simple, but clean and comfortable. Not the thickest of walls, and there's no onsite meals/restaurant etc, so you'd be on your own for meals.

Waterton Lakes Lodge is definitely the nicest of the three, with amenities and onsite restaurant(s). I've eaten there - good food and relaxed, fun atmosphere. If you have the budget, I'd probably for the WLL.
