The Bear Mountain Motel rooms are dimly lit and only feature a HD TV and free Wi-Fi (no fridge, microwave, safe). The walls are thin even by hotel/motel standards and the slamming screen doors were a nuisance. The gentleman at check-in was welcoming and friendly.

About
Description
Conveniently located on the main route in the Waterton townsite, Bear Mountain Motel offers a friendly, clean, and affordable place to stay while visiting Waterton Lakes National Park. Following a classic More 1960’s motel style, Bear Mountain Motel has single rooms, family rooms, kitchenettes and full kitchen suites available. This nostalgic motel is ideal for rejuvenating with some peace and quiet or making new friends while sitting on over-sized wood chairs after an exciting day in Waterton. Family-owned and operated, we have 60+ years of working in, living in and loving Waterton and we’re happy to share favourite trails and tales with you! Less
