Stayed here before years ago but had much better room this time. You need to go for the Delux King rooms. The whole place is very old but retains great character. Note that there are NO TVs in the whole place. Outdoor tub/pool is a feature. Food is excellant all round. Location is superb-only 150M walk from Lake Louise but... More

Location, staff, price, dining, atmosphere - This would be my one place to stay if we come back. The lodge is old but certainly not run down. I would stay here over the Lake Louise Chateau any day. A 2 minute walk and you are at Lake Louise. The food at the lodge was top notch, specifically the Caribou dinner... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the deer lodge - Sat/Sun July 25/26. The property could be a gem but is not. The hallways are very dim. The outside doors have no locks on them so anybody could wander into the hotel. Our room (no. 122) was lacking in a number of things. We opened our window on Sunday afternoon... More

Loved the Deer Lodge for its old style ambiance especially the bar, the dining room and fireside lounge. We had a great dinner and then walked up past the Fairmont and to the far end of Lake Louise. Our bedroom was old style as well and the bed/mattress could do with updating. However, comfortable enough, good friendly service from all... More

Great location and nice rooms. Bring earplugs as the floors in the old part creak like crazy and the walls are so paper thin you wonder if they are there at all. Hope my snoring doesn't disturb the bears too much.

Deer Lodge was a fun place to stay. Yes, it's old but we knew that, that was part of it's charm. The beds were comfortable, firm. The room was very clean. The staff was great and very friendly. Our only complaint and it's not even really a complaint. The restaurant is expensive with limited options but we could have driven... More

The Dear Lodge is a nice historic hotel in a beautiful surrounding at Lake Louise. We had the smallest room of the hotel which was ok for one night. Diner experience can be improved, both selection and handling.

The biggest positive for the property is the location from Lake Louise which is a 5 minute walk from the hotel grounds. Decent large sized rooms with a good bathroom. The property has a roof top hot tub which is small but an interesting touch. Good option to stay at versus Banff

Very nice place, great staff and the location could not have been better. We were able to walk to the Lake and not fight for parking. The rooms are comfortable and clean, hotel style. No elevator but the staff was readily available to help with luggage. Would definitely come back.

This is nestled right next to the famous Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. It's quaint, clean, and simple and a fraction of the price. No TV in our room, so we used the roof top hot tub with a few Canadians (one I ended up knowing her cousin, small world), who kindly shared their beer, wine, and conversation with us. Older... More
