Good location and easy access to ski field. room was good, spa was nice. Staff friendly and polite. Breakfast provided was the only disappointment, the hot section was terrible, microwaved and frozen goods. The Continental section was good.

We stayed 3 nights at the Mountaineer lodge and had a great time. The King room was nice enough albeit a bit dated, and had plenty of space for all our gear. The included breakfast was great and well attended by staff. For skiing, a shuttle comes right outside the hotel

Both plus and minuses. On the plus side, the bed was a better quality and there were an assortment of pillows. TV worked, as did coffee machine, refrigerator and microwave. Good location and shuttle to ski hill. Nice breakfast, with selections. The neutral - carpet new,

We were very pleased with our attractive room at this place. It was clean and had plenty of room. The staff were very helpful and professional. Even the next morning as we walked to breakfast, we were greeted by a staff person who just happened to cross paths with us. One big

This is one of the late check in hotels I have encountered. So it’s not unusual. Having said that, you can always contact the hotel to see if they can help out a bit when you arrive early. I found they were super friendly.

I found that the wifi at the Mountaineer is very good. It is located close to the Village of Lake Louise, which has some pretty paths, but isn't what you visit Lake Louise to see. It is walking distance to Lake Louise Ski Resort (if you want to ride the Gondola there), but it isn't a great walk - uphill on the road. I would say the same of the Fairmont as well - it is a big walk up a winding road - not ideal. There is quite a bit of parking at the Fairmont, but I strongly recommend you take a shuttle if you can to avoid a lot of frustration with parking. The Fairmont is a very busy location. You can rent bikes in town - so if you are into a big climb on a bike, that could be an option.

No, we do not allow pets in the rooms. This is largely due to the restrictions by Parks Canada on domesticated animals in the National Parks.

Please see my post. After you have seen "THE LAKE" there is really nothing to keep you in LL at all. I recommend you then drive on to Banff where there is lots of accom choices and restaurants. If you must stay @ Mountaineer there are no lifts/elevators. There is heating from memory but no AC for cooling. Brekky room is a bit stifling. Paul

"35 is great - can park outside, its only got one neighbouring room - plus upstairs I think."
"I think there maybe rooms in the main hotel area, they may have more privacy."
"Rooms away from the railway side"
"We were on the ground floor, a few doors away from the laundry and breakfast area. It was very convenient."
"Ask for the back of the lodge"
