We loved our three nights at Crandell. It's on Main Street but away from the worst of the crowds and traffic. An ideal evening after hiking consisted of walking easily downtown to get some goodies and then enjoying the view (RV watching!), squirrels, weather and WiFi on the porch at Crandells. We had just ended a five day backpacking trip... More

The Crandell lodge was the perfect location for our few nights we spent in Waterton. We had a room with a small Kitchen, 2 bedrooms, fireplace and a living room area which was more than enough space for 4 of us. On arrival we received delicious home made cookies and the staff were extremely knowledgable and helpful with what to... More

Firstly, the positive reviews are accurate - great location, friendly staff, large enough units and reasonable standard of cleanliness. However, we were unfortunate to get a ground floor unit and, as others have mentioned, the noise from the creaky floorboards above was unbelievable to the point of making the accommodation unfit for purpose. Yes, the building is old but this... More

This is a wonderful place to stay in Waterton. We stayed there for three nights and loved the location and the room(s). Aside from our clean and tidy bedrooms and living room/kitchenette, there is a shady porch/deck in front of the building that is a great place to have breakfast/any meal or sit out and read a book. The staff... More

We really liked the Crandell Mountain Lodge. It was easy to walk around town from the hotel and even though it was at the entrance to Waterton, it was quiet. The people who ran the hotel were very helpful and nice. They had great cookies in the office. We had a kitchenette and a small table in the room. The... More

Easy to find. Excellent and caring staff. Rooms are wonderful.... clean, neat, with all items a person could want. And missing all the items you don't need on a vacation (TV). Close to the lake, close to food, close to adventures... And the chocolate chip cookies were a most welcome treat!!!

This was our third year in a row to stay at the Crandall Mountain Lodge. My wife and I found it to be very quiet relaxing and comfortable to stay on the edge of town and be able to come and go hiking and enjoying the scenery of the area. The lodge itself is restored very old historic and has... More

Yes, our room was small, at the top of the stairs. In the hall we could smell someones food cooking. Once inside we were greeted by a queen bed off set in the corner with an open window on either side. There was room for our suitcase on the floor after we moved a wingback chair. The linens were fresh,... More

I've stayed twice now at this hotel and it's always been very nice. The decor can be a bit dated, but the rooms are clean, spacious and well-appointed. My husband and I went for a Deluxe Queen suite, which was well worth it as the room was huge and included a fireplace (not working while we were there however), fridge,... More

We stayed at the Crandell Mountain Lodge on August 2, 2016. All we needed was a quiet, clean place to stay in Waterton so that we could get an early start on a hike the next day. The lodge provided exactly that. It wasn't the lap of luxury, but it wasn't the worst hotel we've ever stayed at either. For... More
