I had researched the lodge and town and saw that it was limited. The 12-34 restaurant and gas station was about the only thing going. But for a natural beauty and solitude, this is the place. I crossed the border at Wild Horse. After 50 miles of rolling plains, and nothing else, Elkwater was a welcome sight. I stayed in... More

We arrived at the Lodge just after the long weekend in September. We were advised that the restaurant was closed and had been for some time. How unusual to close one of the only restaurants in this village in the height of the summer tourist season. The umbrellas and tables were still up and we were told it was under... More

I can confirm other guests experience. The management here is extremely rude and takes advantage of the fact that they are the only hotel in the area. When we arrived late in the evening the price was all of a sudden substantially higher than what I had been told on the phone earlier and when I complained about that I... More

We attended a 50th anniversary reception and stayed in the lodge portion. Everything was a 4 star rating, including service, room, bedding, balcony, a/c, etc. Some other guests (families with children) stayed in cabins, which were basic and average. The price was acceptable considering it was high season, however, the restaurant was under renovations?? which required one to drive about... More

We stayed here for the weekend and though the price was a little high we found the standard to be high. The rooms were clean and there was cleaning everyday which you don't always get in these types of condo style rooms. The grounds were kept clean and there is a fire pit area for guests to use but we... More

Absolutely not worth the hefty prices they charge at this hotel. Tacky, smelly rooms, horrible views. This hotel is in Cypress Hills Park, and has a captive market - it's the only hotel in the park. Unfortunately, this results in a complete lack of concern for guest satisfaction, bordering on abusive, rude behaviour from both staff and management. It's a... More

We were a party of 3 adults and 3 kids under 4. We fit just fine in the 2 bedroom rustic cabin. Rustic indeed. These cabins were built a long while ago, but they have updated the kitchen area. Everything was clean, but be prepared to share your space with a few spiders along the way. I think they just... More

This was a beautiful resort approx. 1/2 Hour from Medicine Hat, AB. There are condo's, cabins, and hotel rooms. All but only a few of the hotel rooms have fire places. The lake and surrounding area is beautiful. There are walking paths around the lake. The actual town site is very small. Very friendly, only a couple of restaurants other... More

My husband and I stayed here in the jacuzzi suite and purchased the romance package. The jacuzzi tub was dirty and the meal we received at the restaurant was undercooked. After complaining to the manager he told us we were not getting a refund or discount and we ended up leaving that night. Do not waste your time and money!!!!
