Mountaineer Lodge is far from being fancy. They could us e a spruce up and a new coat of paint but what really counts such as being clean, having good mattresses on their beds, and having helpful staff, they have in spades! We would stay there again in a heart beat.

Our group of 9 stayed at Mountaineer Lodge for two nights, (Friday night to Sunday morning) booking the Mount Temple Suite and a Two-Queen room, as part of a small ski trip to Lake Louise. Location: You can't get much closer to Lake Louise, which is a 5 minute drive away. It's located in Lake Louise village, and has a... More

We booked this hotel through expedia (better prices seemed to be through expedia or AMA/CAA/AAA compared to booking directly through the hotel). We were given a room with two queen beds on the upper level of the "original" building (where the complimentary breakfast room is located). According to the website, these rooms are a bit smaller than the rooms in... More

Over all we are satisfied with the location, service and price of the lodge. You could maybe add a swimming pool someday to make the facility more exciting especially for the kids. Add a telephone / intercom in each room.

Basic hotel, excellent location, close to the ski hill, the small mall, and the Chateau. Provided everything necessary for an enjoyable stay. I would stay here again. Lake Louise is an beautiful place, and there is lots of outdoor things to see and do.

Friendly staff, clean hotel, comfortable beds and a great continental breakfast. This is a great place to stay if you are planning a ski weekend in Lake Louise. And for those needing to wax their skis they have a wax room.

We stayed during the winter time Jan 15-20. The hotel itself is quite old and outdated for $170 a night. There are no phones in the room which was really inconvenient for booking tours. The girls at the desk were friendly and let us use their phone at the desk but it was quite a pain. When we asked front... More

Thank you for staying at the Mountaineer Lodge and sharing your comments. I have looked into your booking personally and noted that my team at the desk did offer a better than $170 per night due to better rates available online and your reservation was changed to reflect this price differential. For the breakfast that we offer complimentary to all... More

The room was a nice size and the king size bed was very comfortable, but we could not adjust the heat in the room even though we turned it down as far as it could go. At least we could open the window to cool down the room. Also the bathroom floor was not clean, otherwise the room was nice.
