    Having no other place to stay, my friend and I got a room here. The room was clean but not anything worth the price we paid. There was no cooling system in the room and the room was uncomfortably hot during the night. When we wanted to make a cup of tea or coffee we found that coffee whitener was all that was supplied in place of milk. (An unhealthy option and not at all what one wants to have in a cup of tea) With a fridge in the room it would not be unreasonable to have the little cream and milk containers that are found in restaurants.

    My family has been coming to stay at the Mountaineer for over a decade now. For weeks at a time we enjoy Lake Louise and the surrounding mountains with this hotel as our base camp. Relative to other hotels here, and there aren't many, it's a bargain. No phone, or free wireless? Not a problem - some people obviously need a reminder that you don't come here for those things. You're in the middle of paradise. The rooms are just what we need, the staff are helpful and friendly.

    I get the same room with a superb view of Mount Temple every time i come. The staff welcome me back and make me feel at home. They always endeavor to provide anything we might want. I have a very high maintenance wife, and she is happy here. Sure we would like a few more amenities, but everything is available nearby, and the economy of The Mountaineer Lodge makes it possible for us to have our family reunion every year through lean times or other.

    A very pleasent place to spend a few nights. Rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable. Could use a few more TV channels for those rainy days, but this is a minor thing.

    Even though the hotel itself has no restaraunt, there is a full selection within a five minute walk - everything from inexpensive family food to fine dining. The lake itself (and the far more expensive Chateau Lake Louise) is a five minute drive up the hill.

    As others have written, this is a very delightful and relaxing hotel. We found the staff to be very helpful and our room was very clean, spacious and affordable.
    We had debated whether to "upgrade" to a more expensive hotel, but I am very glad that we did not because I suspect that this was a much better quality then much more expensive facilities.
    We would definately stay here if we return!

The bathroom grouting was peeling and falling out. The place is looking tired and in need of some TLC. Power points were so loose that the plugs fell out.
The breakfast was what I would expect at a hostel, not at a hotel, although it seems that the general standard in many hotels has dropped considerably.
I am giving this review because the price we paid was not up to the standard of the facilities.
I am sorry to say that I believe the price of this facility is mainly because of location. If there had been vacancies further down the road we would have bypassed this one.
