Staying near Lake Louise

My husband and I head to the Canadian Rockies on June 20th. Our initial plans to stay at Bears Den fell through, and we're looking for another place near Lake Louise for the first 4-5 nights in June. Don't want a fancy resort. Will be heading from there to Jasper area, then back to Canmore at the end. Trying to book Jasper as well. Would love suggestions!

We enjoy Baker Creek Chalet. We have only stayed in the cabins, not the lodge. We found this place nearly 30 years ago and have returned several times and just love it!

What does "near" mean? Other than the hotels & hostel in Lake Louise, Baker Creek would be the closest. Beyond that you would be looking at Field, Storm Mountain Lodge, Castle Mountain Chalets or Banff. Beyond the Fairmont properties and a few others, there's really nothing that would be anything close to a fancy resort (Baker Creek is on the pricier side).

It really depends on what you intend to do, and how much driving you want to be doing each day. By the dates of your trip, parking is likely going to be filling up very quickly. If you stay in Lake Louise or Banff, it's much easier to take one of the free shuttles or the paid hop on/hop off shuttle. From the other locations, you'd likely be driving to the overflow lot on the TransCanada to catch a shuttle. If you are looking to do a fair bit of hiking, you'd likely be looking at staying in Lake Louise or Field. For more focus on attractions & food, Banff is best.


It also depends on what you are looking for in terms of accommodation. Anything outside of Lake Louise or Banff would mean driving to any stores or other restaurants/attractions. Lake Louise has a small range of restaurants & a small market. Banff has lots of stores & restaurants and indoor attractions accessible by foot or local public transport. Field has a small general store, but just one restaurant and one cafe.

In Alberta lake Louise is a best place to visit with lots of places and restaurant. I still remember when first time i visit there with my wife. It was a wonderful tour And this will always remind me. We stay in Lake Louise Inn Hotel for one week and really enjoy our holidays.
