“Comfortable and spacious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We stayed in a kitchenette, it was very spacious and comfortable. The flooring was outdated and not fitted properly with gaps but it was ok. The view from the front door was breathtaking. The pool and hot tub were great, the pool was deeper than most hotels and the gym facilities were good also. They charged $20 for us to bring the dog but at least we could have her there. The bed was comfortable but small.

A wintery wonderland...very quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Accomodations were good (not great) but had all the elements for a pleasureable stay. Dining was wonderful, nice setting, great food and service was excellent. Not many people around at all due to it being a regular weekend in the heart of winter. Will very likely do it again, if not this year then next year for sure.

The Waterton Lakes Lodge is in the beautiful town of Waterton which is surrounded by mountains and sits on a lake. We went during the off-season in winter (mid-February), which is very different from the summer. During the winter, the town is completely shut down so don't expect to do a lot of shopping or that sort of thing. However, the hotel has a nice restaurant on site (I recommend the nachos), and a pool with a sauna, a steam-room and a hot-tub so we had no trouble keeping our kids entertained.
The front desk was friendly and helpful and the room was clean.
We stayed over on a weeknight, so they served a complimentary continental breakfast rather than opening their restaurant for breakfast as i'm told they do on weekends and presumably during the busy-season. However, the breakfast was very good, offering not just cereal, yogurt and baking, but fresh waffles and hot breakfast sandwiches as well. Definitely more than I was expecting!
If you can get a good deal and just want to get away, relax, see the beautiful mountains and perhaps spend a little time trekking around outside than this is a great place.

We went to Waterton Lakes Lodge during its slow season, in fact the restaurant was just about to close for a month and the town was all but shut down; however, the staff made it a great stay! The room was clean and tidy and had most of the provisions we needed. Staff were service-oriented and helpful with good suggestions for activities. The event that stands out for our stay was when we got our car stuck in a snow drift and the management team came out (with out us asking them too) in 100km winds to help get us out. They were friendly, helpful and their actions speak volumes about their concern for their guests. We look forward to going back and enjoying the spectacular views and hospitality!

We had a great weekend at the Waterton Lakes Resort. The room was great. Huge bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and a huge king size bed with a gas fireplace. These features made our stay very cosey and romantic. We ate both breakfasts and dinners at Vimmy's and the food was great and tasty. On our first night, our server/bartender could have been a bit more joyful and attentive to our needs, but he got better towards the end. The rec centre is also super close if you are interested in going to the gym or using the pool; a bigger hot tub is also available. Anyway, my boyfriend and I had a great weekend away from work and roomates by staying at the Resort. I will definitely recommend it to others, and we will be back too!!!

The New Years Eve Dinner was excellent. We didnt stay at the lodge as we stayed with friends who have a cabin in Waterton. But the meal was excellent. I had Elk, my husband had buffalo. Friends had steak and salmon. It was all first class.

However, New Years day buffet lunch/brunch was not so good...but I guess the staff had put their 'all' into the New Years feast, so can't complain.

Very friendly staff.
