“Friendly staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

We stayed one night here on out trip up to Jasper. Very friendly staff. About 15 minutes drive from Lake Louise. The rooms are basic but clean. Beautiful view, but the traffic outside is continual till around 2am. Value hotel. Continental breakfast included.

We stayed 3 nights in early July, We booked our Family room a couple of months in advance. Located on the HWY #1 (Trans Canadian) not far from Field, a quaint village.
The hotel is very old and in serious need of renovation. It sits on the busy highway with day and night traffic including the mounstrous semi-traillers. The Wapta lake and surrounding mountains look ominous at first, then you just can't stop looking at the scenery, although the Wapta lake is not really accessible.
Decent size room, tiny bathroom, no kitchen, fridge or even coffee percolator. Wi-Fi was very weak, facilities are below average: dry sauna that did not work. Laundry facilities in Field?
Friendly, polite and helpful staff. Price including a good breakfast is well below average, (breakfast is almost always extra except here) so a decent value for money after all!

Since my trip was a last minute thing, all the beds in the area of Field were already booked. I shared my room with an elderly couple who snored so loud, that I almost could not hear the sound of the highway that goes right next to it anymore. In the serenity of the beautiful Rockies, this place is not where you would want to stay. Maybe the price is cheap in comparison with other ho(s)tels, but to me it was not worth the money.

We were looking for a place just to lay our heads while we explored Yoho national park. We read a lot of bad reviews about it being loud and were afraid to stay there at first, but because we chose the cabin/forest view, we didn't have a negative experience. We brought earplugs and they worked! For us, it was quiet enough, clean and the breakfast was acceptable. The staff were the best we'd experienced, looking after every need. It's located 5 minutes from Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, the Town of Field and the Lake O'Hara hike and 15 Minutes from Emerald Lake and Takakkaw Falls. Wifi was not the fastest, but not the worst we'd had. All in all, pleasant and comfortable.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms by the forest and cabins for a good night's sleep. The lake is beautiful, but h...

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!!

Fantastic view. The Staff were excellent friendly and efficient. The room was clean and comfortable with a fantastic view.
The bar was good and the food in the restaurant very good.
Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the mountains. You will get a little noise from the highway and Canadian Pacif...
