    The room we had booked was so small the two of us could not even move around properly. For an extra $50 a night they gave us a larger room which was better but still small. No TV, internet or other niceities and had to wait for 20 minutes to get one of the very few staff to get us to the new room. No elevators so we had to drag our suitcases upstairs. All in all the owners are just trying to squeeze out every buck they can. On the good side, the hot tub on the roof worked properly and the food was decent although expensive.

    This past summer we had made reservations for one of the very small. least expensive rooms which are comfortable, functional but somewhat spartan. They are great if you plan to spend most of your time enjoying the fantastically beautiful scenery and great outdoors and only need a comfortable, clean place to sleep. When we arrived we were offered an upgrade to a very nice, spacious, attractively decorated room for a nominal fee--- we took it. The location of the lodge, a short walk to Lake Louise, is a real bonus, especially when you see all the cars lined up on the main road everyday trying to get into the public parking lot. The lodge does provide free, convenient parking for guests. The dining room has very good food, better quality at a much more reasonable price than any of the larger nearby establishments. The grounds are attractively landscaped, beautiful flowers, and on mild days it is very pleasant to eat outside. The main part of the lodge was built many years ago and it has the charm and character of an older establishment. The stairs creak and there is no elevator but the wood paneling and the period furniture in the reception rooms add to its appeal.

    Deer Lodge has a great location, less than a five minute walk from Lake Louise. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the building has the rustic charm typical of national park lodges built 100 years ago. I found the ""oldness"" very appealing, part of the charm, especially when compared to the uninspired monolith just up the road next to the lake. There is ample free parking for all registered guests at the lodge which is very much appreciated when viewing the long, long line of cars trying to get into the Lake Louise parking lot. The rooms in the old section are small but very comfortable, pleasantly decorated, and functional; the rooms in the new section are significantly larger and are typical of a nice motel. The food in the dining room is quite good and a cut above most restaurants in the area. With some of the world's best scenery and best hiking in the immediate area does anyone really need a television? My husband and I are repeat customers and plan to go back again this summer.

    This hotel is steps from the Chateau Lake Louise, so you can rely on its shops and services while dining and sleeping someplace far more intimate and relaxing. The level of service is subtle, it takes a while to see what is offered, including Internet access. But the rooms vary greatly in age, size, and features, and it's hard to get a handle on just what you're getting for your price category. If you're adaptable about the room itself and choose the hotel for its location, you'll probably be satisfied at least.

    Comfortable room, crosscountry skiing right out the front door, large public room to warm up after a ski, good clean hot tub. Other guests are friendly, interesting people. Why spend $300 a night more for the stuffy hotel up the road ?
