This is the most reasonable place to stay when skiing at Lake Louise. Really liked the newly renovated rooms. Would definitely reserve them again. The free continental breakfast isn't fancy but it's free and handy before heading to the ski hill. No restaurant on site but within walking distance of some.

This was an excellent stay at Mountaineer Lodge. The front desk reception was very accommodating and helpful. The room itself was very clean and tidy (cleaner than my house...). Room was very big and spacious that fitted 4 comfortably (had the king size bed and sofa bed). The amenities were sufficient and facility was very clean. I would definitely come...

The customer service I received while at this hotel was absolutely appalling. I woke up early for the continental breakfast which was very difficult to enjoy considering the loud and very vulgar conversation being had by the staff members doing dishes in the breakfast room. It made me uncomfortable to sit around families with young kids with such inappropriate staff...

We stayed at the Mountaineer Lodge last July. We had a suite since we had a big group. The front staff was friendly and accommodating, very helpful in making suggestions for things to do.

We stayed in one of the renovated rooms, it was very nice. Wanted to be very close to the Lake Louise Ski hill, and for the price we paid per night,we were very pleased. The breakfast buffet was as advertised, but it could use some protein selection's,ex: sausage/bacon.
