This hotel is very rustic, but charming. It is West of Lake Louise, actually before the town of Field. Pros: right on the TransCanada highway for people travelling through the Rockies, good food at the restaurant, extremely comfortable/high quality mattresses. Cons: not really near anything, no breakfast available at all, no elevator if you have heavy luggage. We ended up... More

The room (second floor and no elevator)was bare bones - lights that didn't work, crowded with tired and old furniture, bathroom clean but teensy and extremely out-dated. Since the lodge is run by a generator, they can get around a lot of things that are expected in a basic room, such as a coffeemaker, phone to call the front desk,... More

The Great Divides is situated in a perfect location for exploring the lesser known Yoho National Park as well as the area of Lake Louise. It is a 3 hour drive from Calgary airport to the hotel on easy roads so was ideal as a first stop after the flight. We preferred the quieter and less touristy are of Yoho.... More

Stayed 1 night, its a lodge, room was ok, restaurant seemed understaffed and closed at 9pm. We buggered off to Field and had a drink and food in the Truffle Pigs Bistro, that was hugely enjoyable. Then back to the Lodge for sleep. Its a good place to get to the Burgess Shale walks starting point early in the morning.... More

I did not expect too much when I booked this hotel. Just want to get a reasonable place to stay in this tourist area while visiting the surrounding lakes and mountains. Here are the pros: 1) Price: I booked quite in advance from hotel.com, the price is quite reasonable considering the season and the location. 2) Location: a perfect location... More

This is probably one of the most overpriced hotels we've ever been too. $200 for a very basic room! The place is run down, renovation long overdue, not very clean. Very basic furniture; no hair dryer, no coffee, no shower fan. We had 2 rooms: the room in the main building was very small; hard to find electric outlets. The... More

We stayed in a 4 person dorm. The room was clean, the bed was comfy. There were enough outlets and the bathroom was clean. The best is the location on Wapta lake. Just as beautiful as it's more famous neighbors but is not yet overrun by tourists. Highly recommend

The room is not that great for the price. Two hundred a night for a queen bed room that was outdated. The cleanliness was clearly lacking. There were several hairs on the bedspread and the towels in the bathroom which made me wonder if they were washed. Floors were dusty and the room smelled musty. We were also looking forward... More

The hotel was clean and staff were very friendly and helpful. The room wasn't very big and the washroom is outdated, but considering the cost of other hotels in this area, it was well worth it for the price. There is a restaurant with patio which has nice views. Included breakfast wasn't anything to write home about (cereal, toast, pastries,... More

The hotel's location is not the best. It is situated in the middle of nowhere, along Highway 1. The doors all face outdoors, so there were no elevators. We have to go on stairs. Inside the room, we had 2 bunk beds, which was fun! We had a couch, and a living chair. We also had a small dining table... More
