It was fun to stay inside the Waterton Lakes National Park. It is centrally located within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. The iron worked; however the hair dryer didn't have enough heat or power to dry hair. The bathroom doesn't have a vent, but it didn't seem to be a problem. The room was clean and the food... More

I was very happy that you enjoyed your time at the Bayshore Inn ! I will have my maintenance team check out all the hair dryers as sometimes the burn out and just need to be replaced. We hope to see you again soon! More

We stayed at the Bayshore Inn in mid-July 2014 and had a wonderful time in Waterton Lakes National Park. The inn was perfectly located in town and right on the lake. The inn has everything you need, restaurants, spa, and beautiful scenery. The room was basic but for a family of four the family suite was perfect. My only complaint... More

Waterton is a gem often overlooked as most go to Glacier Park. It is expensive but beautiful. Bayshore Inn is right on the lake. An older albeit well-maintained motel. Beautiful flower arrangements. We had a less expensive room with a balcony facing the street. Staff was attentive and a pleasure to deal with.

Our room had a sitting porch overlooking the shores of Waterton Lake. It is centrally located in Waterton, the undiscovered jewel of Canada. Cafes, bars, shopping, wildlife viewing and nature walks were just outside our door. The restaurant had great meals, staffed by pleasant young people from many parts of Canada. Beautiful view of the lake.

Hello- I want to first apologize that you were not completely satisfied with you stay. My biggest concern was your comment about the room smelling badly and moldy.

Very nice room with a refrigerator and microwave. The room was clean and well taken care of. The internet is a bit spotty though. I used their in house laundry and the washer left the clothes pretty wet. The dryer didn't work for long enough so I now have wet clothes drying all over my room. Other than that this... More

We stayed at the Bayshore Inn for only one night in July 2014, at the tail end of a long trip back and forth across Canada and the US. This rating reflects the hotel simply as a hotel, not the destination resort that it makes itself out to be. Overall, as a hotel, we gave it a 3. Value ---... More

We arrived at the Bayshore Inn and I walked out onto our deck, and I closed the door behind me so bugs would not come into the room. I was locked out! My room key did not fit the lock, and I was on the second floor! If my husband had not followed me into the room, I would have... More

...at the end of a day of touring was just perfect. We sat and watched the river flow by. The location is ideal as it is in the center of town. An evening stroll to the falls should not be missed.
