Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I would not recommend to stay at Deer Lodge at all. The hotel is just super expensive, even for the location near Lake Louise! The room are more than old and stinky and the deposit is extrem high as well.

Very easy and painless process to check in and out, friendly and knowledgeable service staff. A fantastic location that rivals the Chateau Lake Louise in context of cost vs. value. It's a historic lodge that has a lot of personality.

Updated information on the website would have been helpful for making the booking. The hot tub and restaurant were closed during the time of our stay but nothing was listed on the website regarding these closers. The restaurant should also be taken off of Open Table as you can still book a table. A family of 5 showed up for their dinner reservation, we just happened to be sitting in the lounge outside the restaurant and had to tell them it was closed. Very poor communication around all the amenities available during the time of our stay.

Don't waste your money or time. Not worth it. Location is close to the Lake which is nice but the hotel was meh. Nothing worked- hot tub, ice machine, etc. Restaurant and bar were closed too. You pay for the location and that is it. I think it's cheaper to take a shuttle to the lake and stay at a nicer hotel nearby.

Wonderful historic lodge with great architectural features, but poorly run. Breakfast was included in room rate, but they shut the restaurant down and made no accommodation for those breakfasts or offered a discount to make up for it.

Location is perfect, with only a 5min walk to Lake Louise. The staff at front desk & breakfast restaurant always looked miserable & everything was an effort. The amenities were poor - ice machine out of order, vending machines switched off, hot tub on top deck closed for maintenance. The room needed a fridge, so important when traveling for several days to have your own food and drinks cold. No tv in rooms. After sightseeing for the day, its nice to be able to feel like you are at home with a cold drink and put on the tv for a bit of downtime. The room was always kept clean and tidy.

Deer Lodge is in a great location. It’s an easy walk to the lakeside and has an historic role in the development of this area. Sadly, it’s owned by a resort organisation that’s taken the business decision to stop investing in the property and it will be converted to staff accommodation from November 2023. Therefore, we recommend that any prospective guest adjusts their expectations. The halls are gloomy, poorly lit and have linoleum floors. Rooms have no tv. Breakfast is advertised as starting at 7:00am, but during our stay staff were arriving at this time! Guests lined up waiting for the modest buffet to open and it was not fully functional until 7:25am. If you have a choice, stay elsewhere. The owners of this property are not committed to you as a guest and while the young staff are trying hard, this hotel is on its last legs

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Lake Louise at Deer Lodge. We parked at check in and didn’t use our car again until we left 3 days later. Walk a few blocks to the lake for hiking and canoe trip. Buy your Park shuttle to moraine lake in advance - then just walk down to lake Louise and take shuttle to moraine lake and back. We really liked the staff and vibe at deer lodge - very relaxed and fun. We ate all our meals in the restaurant or lounge - servings were large and we just had 2 meals. Disappointment was the hot tub was broken. We booked a double room in the old section - it aligned with expectations, but you could consider spending more on new room.
