This accommodation listing includes places to stay in Waterton Lakes National Park. The townsite located within Waterton Lakes National Park is small and only a few accommodations are located within this National Park. If you want to stay in Waterton and save yourself time in driving, it is wise to book your stay as soon as possible as these accommodations will completely book up. In the winter time, only a few businesses will stay open and we have noted below which ones are open year round.

When you stay in Waterton during the summer or winter, be sure to book a guided trip or tour with us at Uplift Adventures and make your trip memorable.
Hotels, Motels and Lodges
Most of the accommodations in Waterton are hotels or motels. There are no large chain hotels in Waterton. The Prince of Wales is managed by a large company; however, all other hotels and motels are family-run and this adds to the small town charm of Waterton.
Open Season: Year Round
Rebuilt, renewed and returned once more to Waterton Lakes National Park is the historic Kilmorey Lodge. This Southern Alberta icon has been generating life-long memories since the original building opened in 1926. Now after a fire in 2009, the new Kilmorey Lodge "adds a modern touch to a historical classic". Onsite Pub and Restaurant Dining room.
