We stayed 4 nights wanting take in some of the local sights and do a little exploring in the area. Having 2 children and a modest budget, we needed a place large enough to accommodate our family that was also affordable. A room with a double bed with two singles was within our budget. The room, and the lodge, was modest and somewhat aged but clean and well maintained.
The staff was very friendly and helpful and suggested we visit Lake O’Hara for hiking which turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip! We were simply blown away by the awesome scenery and variety of trails. If you haven’t been there you simply must go. It’s pretty close by which is also nice. We also took a ride on the sightseeing gondola at Lake Louise which is another great thing to do if you’re in the area. The view from the top is spectacular, and we even saw a mother grizzly bear with 2 cubs!
We ate in the dining room several times which was quite good. The kids liked the pool and the sauna did its job.
Overall our experience at West Louise Lodge was enjoyable.
