This is the perfect motor lodge from check in through check out. If they offered breakfast I'd give it six stars. Upon arrival, George efficiently checked us in, offered a bar of chocolate as a welcoming gift, and his wife (Rachel) led us to our room to explain everything. Perfect. The room was furnished with custom wood furniture, the bed... More

Greeted by very pleasant front desk staff who i assume are the owners. Rooms and the grounds are extremely clean and well kept. Probably the best hotel bed ever. Although it is along a main highway the rooms were very quiet. If you are travelling in this area, even if you have to make a detour, this should be top... More

The reviews are spot on! The Elizabeth Lake Lodge deserves 5 plus stars. Upon arrival we're greeted by owners George & Rachel Freitag & their son Paul. George carried both our bags upstairs. The lodge is very well constructed, for those who care. They have imported beds from England, very comfortable. Heated bathroom tile floors. Heated towel rack, nice. Coffee... More

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
