Unless you really want a lake view room I would recommend saving yourself some money and staying at another hotel/motel. The Bayshore does boast the best lake view and access, it has a spa, cafe and fine dining on location but the town is so small you could easily access all of these from another location. The room was large... More

We booked online into the Bayshore inn. Got a beautiful room with a deck and view of the lake steps from our deck. We could go out onto the deck and lounge with 2 great deck chairs, wander down to the lake or stroll along the path all out our back door. The room was clean spacious and had a... More

All most all rooms are on the water, but the ones that are not who cares. You don't go to Waterton to be in your hotel room. There are tons of things to do alone, with your special someone and/or your family. This small town is young and vital, even if your older it makes you feel young. This is... More

This is a rustic lodge set in the midst of a amazing landscape. Looking out on Lake Waterton with a quaint village all around and lots of lovely walks, hikes. There are waterfalls, boat rides on a azure blue lake, and many outdoor activities. In the evenings there are wonderful cafes, bars and restaurants to suit every taste and price.... More

We stayed one night and we chose this motel because of the good reviews. Our room was ground floor facing parking lot in the corner. This room had not been updated in a long time. Smelled of wet carpet. Curtains had a smell as well. It had been very rainy and maybe the dampness got in. Not pleasant to sleep... More

I am so sorry you found the female front desk agent rude, i know who you are speaking and she is new. After much training this is not the position for her personality and she has been dismissed. I am glad you enjoyed our manager and we hope to further impress you upon your next visit. More

After a few years it is so nice to be back here. This is a magical setting with lots of wildlife and natural beauty. Relaxing and healing time. The rooms get booked ahead of time reserve early. Lounge and bar are great hangouts with tasty food.

This property is more like a motel than a hotel. I scored room 200, on the upper floor, reached by external staircases.
