We found a great package which included our lift ticket as well as one night. We had the king bed room and it was ok. The bed itself was amazing so after a long day of riding it was awesome coming back to that. The room itself though was very small and there is no phone or fridge. Also no... More

We went there for a Valentine's day mountain getaway. The hotel looked nice, and the staff were friendly, but it was the bed that made our stay unforgettable. Our night was indeed sleepless -- we were tossing and turning, but the bed was merciless and tough. I ended up sleeping on the couch. However, their restaurant was pretty decent --... More

We stayed at The Great Divide Lodge for the weekend while skiing at Lake Louise. It was about 10 minutes away, as the hotel description stated. The Hotel itself is older, but fully functional. Warm rooms, comfortable beds, perfectly functioning ammenities. One of our favorite features was the game room/fireplace room opposite of the restrautant on the ground floor. The... More

I was looking for an inexpensive hotel to stay in while skiing solo at Lake Louise. Found this hotel online. It is small. Room was very small BUT it was just me. The bed was very comfortable, the room was spotless, the sheets soft (not hard and starched to death). The free shuttle to the hill was perfect and the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during a long tour of the rockies. Unfortunately, we were booking late and many other places were already sold out leaving us with few options. This hotel is located right on a main road across from a big beautiful lake. The lake view is lovely and does make up for the busy street. The... More

We chose this over the hotels in Lake Louise just on price. It's located outside the town of Field and has the highway out front with a lovely lake view for the rooms at the front and finally the train track before the trees and mountains take over. Having read the reviews and been informed of the potential issues we... More

The place all around it is beautiful, but the hotel is terrible. Very dirty and very old. The food in the restaurant wasn't good. The only thing that saves it is the location close to Lake Louise. I would not stay here again.

When exploring is on the list the Great Divide Lodge is perfectly located for checking out the awesome surrounding area. Situated between Field BC and Lake Louise AB you can explore the Takakkaw Falls during the day and head to Lake Louise for a gourmet dinner. The Icefield Parkway is minutes away and going west from the Great Divide Lodge... More

We stayed here because the lodging around Lake Louise looked pricey and BnB's were all filled. This placed looked like an old saloon like I see in cowboy movies, with a bar downstairs, an old walkup staircase, and rooms in a row upstairs. The room was clean, had a bright green bathtub, and nice firm mattresses. Seems like there is... More

Should have read the reviews before booking this hotel; learned the hard way. The folks working there were VERY nice. However, the place itself did not impress me at all. Of course, the old saying "you get what you pay for", should have been an inkling. The room (Room 6) was so small it was comical. If you get claustrophobic,... More
