    We can here in late September. I had stayed here years ago and it seems that the hotel has not been upgraded since it was first open. Dim old fashioned lighting in the bathroom. The carpet was stained and dirty and I wondered when it was last cleaned. The cost of the room had not gone done for the fall... More

    Perhaps it was the late September date that was responsible for the unkempt nature of the place. While our room was a good size, the carpeting was really dirty and we didn't want to walk on it without shoes. With only one server for breakfast, I wasn't going to ask for a coffee refill. The location was fine and I... More

    The room was not ready for the expected 3 P.M. check in. A sign on the desk said that due to staff shortages the rooms would not be ready until 5.p.m.It was but it was a disappointing room, Dirty carpets. Second or third rate appointments. Dirty hallways. On day two our room never did get made up. The lodge food... More

    We got married here and couldn't have been happier with the whole scenario. The park was really busy as we were 1 of 3 weddings that weekend, but it didn't interfere with our plans and everyone had a great time. Since we booked really early there was enough rooms for everybody. I like that the rooms are divided up into... More

    Average hotel room, it could use some updates like a flat screen TV, new carpeting, decorating and linens. The room was stuffy and the AC was noisy. It was just an OK room - we were only there one night and that was enough for the price we paid. Had to walk a short distance to room from parking lot.... More

    I was visiting with my husband and dog. We decided to pay more money for a nicer room. Bad decision. The room was very small, badly appointed with thin towels and linen. The carpet was filthy.

    Never been before, didn't know what to expect. Anniversary weekend getaway. The 'resort' is not on the 'beach' but that is only a block away and an easy walk. Check in was easy, efficient and quick. The rooms are in individual buildings that house multiple rooms, but nothing like the 'long hallway' experienced in hotels. Free parking outside your unit(s).... More

    The double queen room with the kitchen and separate living room was perfect for our family holiday. The kitchen was recently renovated. There were lots of visitors to Waterton but much less crowded than Banff and just as stunning scenery. The front desk staff were very helpful and the room was spotless.
