Booked a king bed room for my wifes and mine anniversary only to be told we booked wrong (but I had the email saying I had a king bed room) and got stuck with 2 double beds like 12 year olds, didn't refill shampoos or conditioners, didn't vacuum the floors, you have to walk to another building to use the...

My husband needed emergency surgery. My two children and I desperately needed an affordable place to stay. We were so happy we were directed to the Bow View Lodge! Tucked away in a beautiful, quiet end of town we were in walking distance of many attractions and restaurants. The staff was excellent, the room was wonderfully clean and we really... More

The hotel was dated but the views are outstanding. The river is beautiful so the view more than makes up for the dated room! The room was large with two beds, a table and chairs, couch, etc. The hotel doors do not close automatically behind you on the hinges like some newer hotels so be sure to shut your door... More

Although the room was a bit small, it was very clean. The front desk staff were awesome. They recommended food services that were spot on and were so friendly and accommodating. The room was quiet and although a bit small, offered everything we needed.

We had a great stay with Bow View Lodge. With an amazing mountain view and a location next to the river we were happy with our weekend get away. Room was a good size with average decor and linen. The staff were lovely and accommodating to our needs. We would recommend to anyone with a smaller budget.

We booked a value room, and it was clean and as described online. I was impressed to find the sharing of services with Banff Park Lodge, right next door. If the prices stay competitive, we will stay again and again!

Quiet with excellent service and walking distance to everything. Loved the view from our king bed over looking the Bow River. The front desk staff was helpful and provided excellent restaurant recommendations.

Once again enjoyed our mini vacation in Banff at the best place in town for value and service. The River Suite is great for watching coyotes and elk come along the river - and listening to the coyotes calling at night too.

I went to Banff to ski/snowboard with a few friends and no one intended to spend any time in thier hotel room nor on expensive hotel rooms so we decided to stay at a economy hotel and got a really good deal on the web. There was a comfortable king bed, hot shower with good pressure, a beautiful view on... More

Fantastic service, helpful staff and great location right in the town of Banff. Great view overlooking the Bow River, and can easily walk to all shops and restaurants of the town. Free parking as well, if the lot is full they offer underground at the Park Lodge Hotel (nextdoor) for free. Can't ask for more for the price! I'll definitely... More
