“Very good place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2012

We stayed at the Mountaineer Lodge on August 19, 2012. The young lady at the desk when we checked in was very friendly and helpful. The scenery was spactacular and the shopping was close. We were close to Lake Louise, trails to walk, resturants. The hot tub and spa was a nice relaxation after our day of walking and site seeing. A great place to stay

We ended up staying here 6 nights, I am glad they could fit us in for 3 extra nights. Room was very nice - clean and recently remodeled. Front desk staff was very helpful. They offer a discount if you stay 3 nights or more. It seemed reasonably priced, considering we were there during peak summer season.

Room Tip: Try for a room on the 2nd floor.

Dont read reviews from 2012. Go Back and read earlier reviews, which is what we should have done!!! Paper thin walls kept us up throughout the night. Never slept worst!!! Heard people taking showers, talking in rm, closing doors... The room was filthy. Tiny shower, urine stains on toilet - ugh!!! Don't stay in this "hotel" if u want a clean environment and a decent nights sleep. Sorry we ever booked this hotel!!!!!!!!!

Good place to stay, a bit further from Lake Louise as the brochure states. Right on the intersection with Highway 1, so easy access. 2 gasstations, a restaurant and a small shopping centre on walking distance. Only the coffee places are closed very early, pity.
The office has discount tickets for gas and meals. Good rooms, wifi is a bit slow. We stayed at the Brewser Mountain Lodge in Banff the night before, and this is better value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a downstairs room in the main building: there is no elevator and you do not have to walk acr...

Our experience at the Mountaineer Lodge was nice but not spectacular. It is centrally located in the tiny lake Louise area. As we were driving around the area we discovered smaller cabins that were in more scenic locations. Our room was clean and had two queen sized beds. The lodge has a nice whirlpool area which seems fairly new. There is no restaurant on the property but you can get a 10% coupon to a local restaurant.

We needed a stopover between Jasper and Revelstoke and I made an advanced reservation six months ago for $149. I chose this hotel based on the price and reviews. We never spend much time in the room. What you get is a clean, efficient, no frills room in an expensive part of the Rockies. We stayed in a second floor room in the older building. There is no elevator so hauling lots of luggage up the steps could be an issue.

We used the fan provided. It helped create a diversion against the noise of other guests and trains. We slept fine and I only recall hearing one train the whole night. They really should put mini refrigerators in these rooms, they even have space for one. We had a cooler so it wasn't an issue for one night. The internet was not the best, but did the job. The TV actually had a good picture considering it was a small standard set.

The staff was friendly and helpful during check-in. We walked to Bill Peyto's Cafe for dinner and had a very good meal. We would have no problem staying here again in Lake Louise.

We stayed in the Mountaineer Lodge at the end of July for one night. It was the best value we could find in the lake louise village area. We stayed on the second floor of the older building. Had to lift all our bags up the stairs. Our room did not have any AC. There was a lovely hot tub area located in the reception building which was nice after a long days hiking. The lodge is located very closed to the lake louise shopping area, about a 2minute walk. Its about 4km from Lake Louise itself, and its uphill all the way to the lake.
