Located a half hour or so West on highway 1 outside of Banff NP, the lodge is an alternative to the booked and ridiculously overpriced accomodations inside the park. The property abuts the highway, but does have a nice view of the mountains and a lake across the road. The clerk professed there was no way to get access to the lake, but when I left, I saw a small foot bridge on the West end leading toward the shore. It would have been nice to know that and take a little walk before dinner, had I known. Rooms are spartan, small and the hallway has a peculiar smell. Soundproofing is poor and you can hear guests in nearby rooms and in the hallway jabber away. There is no cell coverage, but wi-fi works. The restaurant only serves dinner. I had a thick chowder made with canned cream and a good carpaccio that was nicely arranged, but inexplicably included potatoe chips. Breakfast is 'continental' self-serve, which is to say a low carb guest will have trouble getting anything. In a pinch, this will do, but its still overpriced, considering the value.

Room Tip: For more quiet, get an odd numbered room, facing away from the highway

This place looks like a ski hostel which I am sure it is in the winter. But in the summer it is heaven. The rooms are sparse, but we spent our time sitting on the patio outside our second floor room gazing at the lake across the highway and the incredible mountains and glaciers in front of us. The room was clean and the bed comfy. I don't mind green porcelain for one night! Breakfast was as good as you get at the Holiday Inn but the dinner meal was very good. We had the veal chop on butternut squash gnocci and it was wonderful. Wish we could have stayed longer and taken some of the hikes!

Room Tip: Lake view rooms are the best with king size beds!

As you may have discovered, there are limited accommodation options in Field, BC. After searching and finding no vacancy elsewhere, we booked in at the Great Divide Lodge for one night. We checked in with some hesitancy but were pleasantly surprised. While these are basic rooms in a very old building, the rooms are clean and beds comfortable. And if you're in desperate need of a throw back experience, the 70s very yellow bathroom sink and tub won't disappoint! The continental breakfast included in the rate, is adequate and very convenient.

My husband and I stayed here for a night during our trip to Banff/Jasper/Yoho. This lodge may not have the nicest accommodations, but the location and the price CANNOT be beat. It is close to Emerald Lake and Lake Louise as well as Lake O-hara (if you have a reservation to take the bus in, which we did not). We chose this place for it's location, and for $99 (double bed), it was a great deal! Free wifi was available in the rooms. A light continental breakfast is included, mostly pastries and coffee, so we picked up something else in town for breakfast before we went hiking. And speaking of hiking, the trailhead for Sherbrooke Lake is right next to the lodge, and it was easily one of our favorite hikes that we did our whole trip. Beautiful lake and not too many people on the trail.

Great location to Field and surrounding walks and Mountain pass. Easy access to lake Louise, with quiet mountain surroundings. No city and traffic hassles up here. Staff are friendly and polite. Rooms are basic, so great for travellers/hikers/family's. No good for night life seeking people. Natural setting and views. Highway noise could be problem to some, but its really not bad at all. I would stay again for sure. Great night-time view of stars etc as there are no lights up here.

Room Tip: Front rooms are the best views over the lake and Mountains, bit noisy, but the views are worth it
