Upon arrival the lodge is very quaint and beautiful, after checking in we immediately noticed how non soundproof the room was. Between the creaking stairs above, the hallway, and doors being slammed I never noticed 5 minutes of quiet. On the second day we decided to try the restaurant, after being seated and despite being one of only three tables... More

Location is great--within a stone's throw of Lake Louise. The building itself looks like an old-world cottage. There were piles of snow on the roof in waves--sort of Gaudi-like. Inside, it is an old lodge, targetted to visitors who are into outdoor activities--skiiing, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, hiking etc. Originally, perhaps, it was a hunting lodge. The rooms are generous with... More

Well, I'm very disappointed to say the least…I mean, I didn't have extreme high hopes for this hotel to begin with, based on some previous reviews. (They are all true by the way!) Even spent the extra money on the Heritage room as suggested. And we were definitely not going to Lake Louise for the hotel though, but with that... More

I stayed here for 15 nights in February and had a fantastic experience here. I was lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite when was divine! The staff are so friendly and helpful and the hotel has a generally warm feel! Highly recommend deer lodge!

No TV, free wiifii, a bar with a caribou head, a fireplace with a bison head.. a warm reading common room where people meet, new friendships are made, and white unspoiled snow! oh and the food is great! The hot tub is an outside bliss! Views are Rockiest ever.

We spent this Christmas snowboarding in lake louise and banff. We spent our first week over Christmas in deer lodge. It's an ideal location, just 5 minutes walk from the lake and 5 minutes drive to the ski area. It's a traditional wooden lodge- the old part of the lodge is a bit tired looking to be honest and has... More

I stayed here while at work conference, which was being held at the Chateau nearby. To start with the pluses: it's a 5minute walk to Lake Louise/Lake Louise Chateau. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the hotel is clean, rooms are relatively well kept, and the location is quiet and peaceful with plenty of hiking, and natural beauty.... More

We have stayed at Deer Lodge many times and the most recent stay was to celebrate our honeymoon there 25 years ago. It is located at Lake Louise a very short walk from the Lake the the Chateau. The Rooms are basic and small but that is not a problem as the Hotel's lobby with its fantastic fireplace and beautiful... More
