We were booked to stay only one night here but after seeing the town and the lodge we forfeited our deposit on a different hotel and stayed there a second night. Do not expect the Four Seasons, but this little lodge is perfect for this beautiful mountain village. Waterton Lakes itself looks like Dickens Village and this little inn is... More

First the good - Friendly owners and staff. Generally clean, if a bit spotty. Then the rest - small rooms, noisy, room wasn't cleaned until 3pm, "kitchen" was like those in a small RV, windows face one of the busiest traffic corners in Waterton. OK if you get a sweet deal, but otherwise there are much better and quieter places... More

Stayed with friends from UK for 3 nights and was embarrassed for them and generally dissatisfied with the experience. The location is good. That's about all that was positive. The rooms are shabby and worn, the carpets dirty and the window blinds shredded. I found a Pepsi bottle and Copenhagen can under one of the beds and had to prop... More

First, understand that every place in the area is overpriced/expensive. As a result, the Crandell is pretty expensive for what you get; however, as we looked for accommodations it seemed the best value. Our host at the Crandell was pleasant and helpful, parking was directly in front of our room. You walked in an outer door and down a tiny... More

What a surprise Crandell Mountain Lodge turned out to be! My wife and I took a chance and decided to spend a night in Waterton Park. Crandell is the first hotel you see and if you're lucky they'll have a vacancy. The front desk girl was nice and friendly even though we did interrupt her in the middle of baking... More

We recently spent 2 nites here and we were thoroughly disappointed. There has been minimal upkeep at this property inside or out. There was a film of dust throughout the room. The beds and pillows and linens were old. It was an expensive rate for a barely average room.

My husband and I spent 2 nights here in mid-August and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was convenient and just steps away from the walking trail in town and views of the Prince of Wales Hotel and mountains. The room was clean, the bathroom was spacious with ample shelving, and the bed was comfortable. The room gave one the... More

My wife and I spent two fantastic days in Waterton earlier this week. We had a Deluxe Queen room the first night and a Standard King the second. Both very clean and efficient rooms. Excellent location (5 minute walk to the restaurants) and great view of the Prince of Wales Hotel from the front of out hotel. Great value for... More

We were happy to score a room in the busy season at Waterton Lakes. The lodge is very easy to find (right there when you enter the town). We were greeted by Bob who was just making fresh cookies. It smelled delightful. Our room was spacious and we were delighted by the "bear" décor. There was twinkly pine trees and... More

We have been to Crandell Mountain Lodge several times and each time is more enjoyable. We always hate to leave. The rooms are very comfortable and clean and the staff are friendly. The deck just a few steps from our room was nice to sit outside and bar-b-ques are also available. Love the lodge and Waterton and will go back... More
