Crandell Mountain Lodge is definitely a bit dated, but it is quite quaint, charming and cozy, and most of all, clean! We travelled as a family and got two rooms. One room had two beds and a tiny kitchenette and the other had a queen size bed. Both were comfortable and clean. Wi-Fi was a bit spotty but didn't detract... More

The place is pretty rundown and drab. Threadbare seats, everything crammed into the room. Super small bouncy queen bed. We loved Waterton, but we wouldn't stay here again. It needs some serious renovations. We were on the ground floor and we heard everything going on upstairs, including people stomping up and down the stairs. Helpful staff are very efficient.

My husband and I visited Waterton Lakes in late September for 3 nights. The Lodge was just what we wanted. We had the Bear Room - lots of space, comfy chairs, jacuzzi bath, as well as shower and tub in bathroom. As the evenings were cold, it was great to return to a nice warm room. Wifi was okay in...

Our room was quiet and looked out towards the lake. Country style decor and the bathroom could be updated - everything worked well. The only thing we found was the pilot light in the fireplace made the smallish room very hot. Even with windows open it was warm in there. Tv reception and wifi was not good but that is... More

We booked the Crandell Mountain Lodge with a voucher and decided to upgrade the room when we booked. The staff was very accommodating as the voucher had specific travel dates, the staff worked with us to book a week-end. The upgraded room had a king bed and a jetted tub. The room was clean and comfortable. Our limited interaction with... More

The staff were very knowledgable. The room was just as advertised...country inn charm. I appreciated the kitchenette and the great water pressure in the shower. Do not expect much for TV in this National Park setting. (That's not why you visit here anyway) There was a small old-style TV with maybe 3 channels. Also there is no internet. I was... More

Great place centrally located to almost everything in town. Price is good. The facilities are somewhat dated but the place is as clean and neat as a pin and exudes a certain charm from days gone by.Enjoyed watching deer in the park across the street in the evening

Love the fact that there are no phones in the rooms - so nice to be out of touch! Internet worked just fine so if you absolutely have to find out what's happening in the world you can. Staff is friendly, location great - all in all a great getaway!

I'll be honest, I wanted to stay at the Prince of Wales but there were no vacancies for the dates on which we'd be in Waterton. However, I found the Crandell online and was intrigued. I read a few of the reviews and they were mixed, but I was interested in staying somewhere different than your average motel. Anyway, I... More

This was a very nice place to stay. Room was slightly small but had lots of charm. The lodge is not hard to find, on a corner intersection. The town is very quaint. People seem very nice. Great for photographers taking photos of Prince of Wales hotel.
