“Awesome”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

The hotel met all our expectations. I would advise potential guests that there is no restaurant on site and getting in somewhere to eat was impossible. The Petro Can across the street does have enough snacks to make a meal.

The hotel for the most part was comfortable could do with a few updates. Kind of a flash from the past with the decor but would recommend it and we would stay again. For the price you would expect a much better breakfast. We stayed at smaller much less expensive hotels on our trip and a full hot breakfast was included.

Thank you for staying at the Mountaineer Lodge and sharing your comments. I was pleased to read that you had enjoyed your room and amenities. Regarding the continental breakfast set up we have. The room has been designed to be able to accommodate cold items and the waffle makers; however, the area had been never intended to able to cook and serve hot items unfortunately. With that in mind we went ahead and provided a cold continental breakfast to all of our guests.

We trust you had a wonderful time in Lake Louise and look forward to seeing you again in the future.

From the reception welcome to the quietness of this location, our stopover was three days of
comfort and enjoyable surrounds. The beds and linens were first class and sleep was very easy on the great mattresses. Friendly fellow patrons, many of them with children, favored us at the free breakfast across the parking lot, where one could also find the laundry facilities. There are stairs leading to the basement location of the breakfast seating. The hot eggs and sausages were in sufficient number that they did not run out and the fruits and juices, cereals and muffins were easy to get at.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms here are quiet and we were not able to discern any adjacent wall or even ceiling...

Good location. Large room. Room furnishings dated. Bathroom outdated, with tiny stall shower. Big breakfast, but my family is gluten-free and there wasn't much we could eat there. Overpriced. Heard train nearby.

This place was dated, but clean, spacious and there were refrigerators in the rooms. They provided a breakfast and it was in a good location to many trails etc. Most of the year you will probably not need it, but there is no air conditioning.

Thank you for staying at the Mountaineer Lodge and sharing your comments. Your feedback is very important to us. I was pleased to read that you had enjoyed your room and amenities. The interior of the lodge is dated; however the owners of the property are already looking at what further upgrades we can make of the property. To date we have added the breakfast room and upgraded all beds and added fridge and microwave in every room. I trust you had a memorable experience exploring Lake Louise and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
