We stopped here on our first night driving from Calgary to Vancouver. Rachel was very helpful and had tips for town, and we loved the location by the lake our back and being able to watch trains go by out front. The Lodge rooms are very well-designed and had everything we could have wanted. The details were wonderful, from the... More

This lodge is my favorite place that I have stayed at in all my travelling years! There's heated tiles in the bathrooms, an AMAZING mini golf course (with 18 holes), dimmer switch lights next to the beds, a kitchen (with microwave, stove, fridge, cabinets, silverware, bowls, and plates) in the double queen bedroom. I enjoyed staying at the Elizabeth Lake... More

The flagship of lodge/motels with kitchenettes The owners of this independent lodge have worked hard to earn a gold star for this exceptional accommodation. We have stayed here a couple times and it stands out here and places that we have stayed at across Canada.

Some have taste, but no resources. Others have resources but little taste. The owners of Elizabeth Lake Lodge are in the small minority that have both. This place is a visual treat inside and out, and I can only echo what many others have said. Far above most places you can find anywhere whatever the price. Any serious motel/hotel operator... More

This motel is located at the eastern end of the main road that runs through Cranbrook and adjoins a bird sanctuary on Elizabeth Lake itself. The room was simply but very nicely appointed with two queen beds, TV, bathroom/toilet, fridge, oven, microwave, kitchenette area with cutlery, crockery and some kitchen equipment. There was even a tea towel, dishcloth and washing... More

I stayed here because it was the #1 rated Tripadvisor hotel in Cranbrook. What a great find! Owner/operators are as attentive to detail as I would be if I ran a hotel. Recent, complete, room renovations; and so many pleasant surprises, including the heated tile bathroom floor! Save time for at least one round on the world's most imaginative miniature... More

The other reviews were right. This is a little gem of a place. Nothing flashy, nothing ritzy, just friendly service and perfect execution on the little things. First, I was greeted like a long-time friend. Most times, you can tell the person doesn't really mean it and is just putting on a face. Not here. You can tell they are... More

I was a bit hesitant at first, when I realized the lodge was on main street across from the railway tracks however any concerns I had were misplaced. The lodge has recently been renovated and is clean and quiet. The folks running it are attentive and anxious to ensure they do whatever is possible to provide their guests with a... More

What a find... from the great personal service of the personable and cool owner George, to the beautiful rooms and views (see pics attached), to the beautiful knotted wood furniture, very comfy beds and our favourite- the heated bathroom tile floors!- this place is special. There's no way of to recommend the Elizabeth Lake Lodge more highly. Make time to... More
