“A great find! ”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

We were recommended this hotel by a previous staff member so decided to give it a go as accommodation in Banff was very hard to come by and expensive.
We were very impressed with what we found. So much so that we stayed 3 nights as it was so convenient to Peyto Lake, Lake Louise, Moraine Lake and Banff.
The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were clean and had everything we needed. Simple but great. Lovely views over the lake and to the mountains. A little bit of road noise, but it didn't bother us at all. The staff were from all over the world and were knowledgable and friendly travellers.
We found the restaurant to be fantastic! Reasonably priced, very good food ( loved the pizzas ) and a nice deck to enjoy the sunshine and some beers.
It seems the off season is when renovations are done and I would not look at reviews prior to the Summer season as it seems things have changed since then! Would totally recommend this lodge!
And go early to Lake Louise - 8-830 ish before the tour buses. We hired a canoe and were first on the lake and it was stunning!!

We stayed here because we were coming from Banff on our way to Jasper, the location was perfect. However the room is very small, wifi does not work, bathroom is tiny, bed isn't comfortable and there's no mirror or coffee maker. If youre coming from the US this room is probably worse than a 59.99 motel6. We played $160 for the night. Stay only if you want this location with a quick night stay.

A fantastic choice for budget travellers; clean, low-key lodge and good restaurant at quite a discount to Lake Louise offerings, just 10 mins from Lake Louise
We stumbled on this place using a Google Maps search for lodging near Lake Louise, and booked one night by phone (the online system showed no availability). Then, after more planning and even afer finding some negative reviews on Tripadvisor, we booked a second night, attracted by the compelling price (I'm stumped by what the negative reviews are referring to). We would come back without any hesitation.
Pros: Price (hard to beat); location, across from a lake and beautiful peaks; we used the place to enjoy a half day in Yoho and a half day rafting on the Kicking Horse River, before heading out the next day on the Icefields Parkway; very clean, quiet room (double bunk beds facing the creek/forest); very friendly, helpful staff; WiFi was good
Cons: Very basic complimentary breakfast (bread, cereal, beverages, apples/oranges), but better than nothing; spartan furnishings in room, but sufficient; rooms facing the highway might be a bit noisy (not sure, but this could well be the case)
(Stayed July 16-17)

We stayed for 6 nights and enjoyed the place very much. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was a reasonable size with a comfortable bed. Breakfast had 3 different cereals, toast, juice, and some fruit. Very slow Wi-Fi but you can get your email. The mountain view room has a great view. But you can hear the noise of the highway and it is more expensive. The back rooms have a view of the woods and are less noisy and less expensive. Choose what is more important. The Lake Louise area is very expensive and this is a great value for the area. It is not a luxury motel but a very comfortable place to stay. Given the high prices of all the hotels in the area, this was an excellent value and definitely recommended.

We'll come back next time! Their location is quite convenient. 15 min away from the town of lake lousie and the town of Field. Agreed with some other reviews that it's not fairmont but it got everything we need! Free breakfast, free wifi, a comfy bed, a very clean room and bathroom with all basic supplies. The people worked in hotel are quite friendly.

We stayed here twice in a week. The first time, we got a lakeside view room with balcony. The second time, we have a lakeside view room but no balcony. I'd suggest get the room with balcony, if you can, and enjoy the lake view!

There were some noises in the evening from the hallway but didn't bother us too much.

Room Tip: Get the lakeside room with balcony!
