We drove through Cranbrook looking for a spot to spend the night and found this gem just by chance.
Situated right next to a bird sanctuary, the setting is picturesque and the motel matches it's setting. It's a new and attractive building with a great mini golf course included with it which will keep the kids (and adults) entertained.
The rooms have everything you could ask for and more. Spacious and immaculate with great beds and linens and some amazing, thoughtful extras.
The granite countertop and under mount sink on the kitchenette are nice but the heated tile floor in the bathroom with heated towel racks are even nicer. There is an extra deep bath tub for a nice soak if you wish and custom sourced soaps just to spoil you a bit more.
They've even provided a very good quality clock radio to get you up and going instead of the cheap ones you usually find and a thoughtful guide to Cranbrook and area so you can decide where to explore.
The owners are wonderful, friendly people making this one of those spots that we wouldn't hesitate to recommend to everyone.

We stayed here on a trip to the Canadian Rockies. Th lodge is owned by a friendly and hospitable family that make their property shine when compared to chain hotels. The lodge is at the periphery of Cranbrook. It looks like a regular motel (not really "lodgey"), with an associated mini-golf park. Our room was spacious and impeccably clean. The owner indicated that our room was part of a new addition. The bed was wonderful- a large pillowtop that was very comfortable. A large recliner provided a great place to relax. TV and internet access was good. The bathroom was a little small, but had heated floors and towel rack. Parking was available right outside the door, and the room backed up on little Elizabeth Lake. It was quiet and relaxed. I'd recommend this place highly!

Room Tip: Ask for a room by the lake!

We loved this place-it was clean, quiet, and very nicely kept. The staff made a real effort to make you feel welcome. It was nice to take a walk on the bird sanctuary grounds behind the lodge.

The decor was nice and modern, one of the nicest kitchenettes I have ever seen, dishes and kitchen supplies were all matching and good quality. The bathrooms were exceptionally clean and a real effort was made to make the place environmentally friendly. The locally made soaps in each room were a classy touch. Would stay again and highly recommend it.

What more can you say about this exceptional place? The owners are great - the friendliest welcome we have had, was greeted by name on arrival and shown to their newest room. Their work on developing the Lodge is complete. Underfloor heating in the bathroom, a bed the Queen could sleep in, a large screen sat TV and the most comfortable reclining leather armchair you can think of to watch it or rest in. The carpet is so plush you automatically take your shoes off when you enter. The kitchen area is fitted with a cooker and fridge you would like to take home, fully equipped with quality utensils - no plastic here! If you at Elizabeth Lake Lodge, please respect the quality and leave it like this for when we return!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have a better view of the lake andy

Elizabeth Lake Lodge owners, George and Rachel, not only provide top rate service and well appointed rooms, but their lodge also borders on a delightful wetland park. On our last night there we took the 5 minute walk out to the floating dock on the lake. At this time of year it was still light at 9:30 p.m. Once at the dock we watched a red wing blackbird feed her nestlings, as well as observed coots, grebes, canvas backs, mallards and ruddy ducks feeding. Elizabeth Lake was calm and serene as dusk fell. We sat and just drank in the beauty. As we walked back to our room, we commented that we haven't stayed at many places that have such a wonderful natural setting. During this visit we also walked more of the trails in the park and discovered a new loop walk. George has taken an active leadership role in improving the park trails and just last week directed a group of local volunteers in building a new trail link.
While Elizabeth Lake Lodge is popular with pet owners because of its proximity to the park, we also appreciate that they keep some of their rooms pet free for people like us who need a hypo-allergenic room.
As we talked to other guests, we heard a lot of happy people. One fellow commented on how homey he found it, while another noticed the high quality of the room furnishings. We concurred with them both.
Most Cranbrook hotels and motels are located on the very commercial "Strip." While this may suit some travellers, we find the setting of Elizabeth Lake Lodge delightful. It is definitely a place to stay for more than one night, but if that is all the time you have, make sure that you go for a walk around the park and enjoy watching the wildlife.
We took a tour of the new building and see that there are a variety of room configurations. We stayed in Room 18 which we like because it is roomy and has a couch and reading lamp. I don't really think there is a "best" room. All the rooms have some sort of special feature. The best way to get the best room for your needs is to discuss your preferences with George or Rachel when you make your reservation.
