Mountaineer Lodge
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Lake Louise
Reviewed 26 March 2014

There are not that many places to stay in Lake Louise. We normally stay at the Lake Louise Inn as I generally have a Louise card and get reduced pricing. This year I did not have the card and needed a place to stay. I went with the Mountaineer as the room price included a free breakfast which made this a better deal than the Inn. The room was larger than the economy rooms at the Inn and the breakfast had a lot of variety and included fresh waffles. The room was quite dry but that is likely normal for a room in Alberta in the winter. Our thermostat worked however the room temperature indicator was stuck at 25 so this needed to be fixed. The location is close to the hill and within walking distance to a few restaurants. The room also came with a fridge and microwave which is always nice. The desk had no chair and was used more for storage for the coffee maker than a desk. Overall a good place to stay for a night or two.

Great location within all the Lake Louise amenities. Very clean & well decorated room. I had the family room with two queen & sofa-bed and still lots of space to relax. The complimentary breakfast was more than adequate. Price was fair considering the size of this room & time of the season. The staff was professional and courteous. I will recommend this place with no hesitation at all... Sylvain Cossette Morinville, AB

I would certainly consider staying in this lodge when at Lake Louise again. The continental breakfast was certainly a pleasant bonus, along with having both a microwave and mini-fridge in the room. Extremely pleasant staff.

Drive up to door of room is nice.
No restaurant but some within walking distance.
Good value for money in such a beautiful location.

Very good service and great location. The front desk was very helpful with our requests. The shuttle to the ski resort was always on time, and the drivers were friendly. The hot tub and steam room were perfect for after skiing.

Mountaineer Lodge is in a great location as you can walk to the shops and it is really close to the ski hill (equidistant to Lake Louise itself and the ski hill). The rooms are fairly small but do the trick. Best shower of any hotel we have ever stayed in (it was a torrent!). Staff were super friendly.

This is a lovely hotel in a stunning place. I would definitely recommend it. We only stayed one night, but everything went very well and the hotel was very accommodating allowing us to check in early.
