Off Season Get-Away

Reviewed By BuriedTreasure

We've stayed here twice......Dec 21 / Jan 22. The rooms were clean and beds are comfortable. There was a lot of snow both time we there. And yet there was no snow removal in their parking lot. No salt on the sidewalks. Will be back next off-season.

Centrally located, convenient, great service, cleanliness-average

Reviewed By Geminican

Positives: * Nate and Trisha performed fast check in and good direction to the room, and info about the park with good maps. Trisha was helpful providing conversion rates info on currency, distance, and gasoline. (Canada uses the metric system). That info helped me greatly during my travel in Canada, which I appreciated. * They were responsive in moving me to a different room when the first room had trashes at the front door. * Great hot shower * Clean and comfortable bed Negatives: * Cleanliness issues: The first assigned room had trashes at the front door and no hot water. A long hair found in the bathtub of the second room. * Carpets in common areas look old and needs replacement * Food smelt in the building * Thin walls, for light sleepers only: very loud air conditioning and the refrigerator machine sometimes also is loud. Other info: * For light sleepers only: very loud air conditioning and the refrigerator machine sometimes also is loud. * It's centrally located, right next to the Waterton visitor center and nearby dining options. There is a small general store nearby as well. * Should have enough parking spaces for guests staying in this lodge, but I would not say they have plenty of parking spots. * This lodge has multiple buildings, each building has anywhere from 6 to 12 rooms with different sizes and layouts. It’s not cabin style, more like an apartment complex. There are several lodges you can choose from in Waterton such as Aspen Village (which is also centrally located), Waterton Glacier Inn & Suites, I did not look into all of them. Because this one is the only one, I was able to find the reception/lobby. Other ones, the lobbies/receptions area were hard to find. * The next closest cities outside of the Waterton National Park are Pincher Creek and Cardston. Overall, service was great, facility condition is average, the cleanliness is above average (had it not have the hairs on bathtub), it would have been great. Noise level is loud because of thin walls and loud air conditioner/heater. 3.5 out of 5. Despite of that, if these issues don't bother you and you value convenience, this can be a good option in addition to several more lodgings nearby.

Crandell Mountain Lodge

Designated a Charming Inn of Alberta, Crandell Mountain Lodge is a rustic and quaint property that, with no telephones and few TV channels, feels like a true getaway. Guests receive complimentary use of the outdoor BBQ and access to the local Recreation Center. Choose from standard, deluxe, kitchenette, or the “Bear’s Den” that has a king size bed, fireplace and in-room jetted tub; it’s a favourite among our guests. The Crandell Mountain Lodge is a jewel within itself; with a feeling of a country bed and breakfast and the comfort of a lodge.

Not worth the high price

Reviewed By Philip B

Where do I start? We had a ground floor room, the only source of heat was a gas fireplace, when the thermostat called for heat many times during the night the gas lit and illuminated the whole room. The fireplace was situated 12 inches from my head so this was really annoying all night. The entrance area to the rooms is on a multi level wooden deck made from 2x4 lumber which was not only slippery when wet, but not in any way wheelchair friendly due to multiple levels of this weird deck. At night it was unlit making it an extreme tripping hazard. The carpets were filthy with ground in dirt and pine needles. The door to our washroom could only be opened about 20 inches before it hit the kitchenette cupboard. The actual bathroom was very narrow maybe 40 inches. The smoke detector above our bed had been removed, subsequently if there had been a fire no noe else in the building would have been warned. The gas stove had no safety devices to prevent the gas from being turned on when there was no flame( thermocouple) highly dangerous. Just a totally unacceptable state. $430.00 for 2 nights was not worth it. And very unsafe. Are there no fire inspectors out there for Waterton?

We did not get what we booked

Reviewed By ljttA1541RA

I booked a kitchenette suite with a King bedroom months before our travel date, via phone. The agent with whom I spoke assured me it was a pet friendly room. Imagine our surprise when, on arrival, we were confronted with a small, smelly room featuring two double beds. We were told this was the only pet friendly option. The beds were not the problem; the key issue was the lack of a kitchen in which to prepare our food. When traveling with a pet, eating out is challenging, and it's easiest to come prepared to self-cater. Although the room had a small fridge and microwave, it did not have any dishes or cutlery (nor a place to prepare food), and the person at the desk said it was not possible to give us any. She also grumbled at a request for a plug for the bathroom sink. The other issue was the smell in the room. We asked for, and were granted, another room, in which the odor was not as strong. As a result, we cut our stay short.

Very good

This hotel is good enough for travelers. It is quite well located in Waterton and can enjoy the lake view and mountain view. The personnel of the hotel is so nice and friendly. Check in and check out is quick.
