This hotel complex is in a great central location. It is so easy to access and depart if you are visiting in Banff. The only downfall is the trains.....all night long. Just to add the hotel is a little dated but the location certainly makes up for it. The rates are reasonable for what you receive. Highly recommend booking well... More

I just spent a week there and this is a great deal in Banff. Parking is a bit tight and the rooms are not real fancy or modern, but they met and exceeded my needs. I`ve been staying at fancier hotels out on Banff Avenue, and they were fine, except for location - this place is great, just two blocks... More

The location of this hotel is quite good if you wish close proximity to downtown Banff, but also wish to not be subjected to excessive traffic noise. We booked a river view room on the first floor, as this was a much better value than a room on a higher floor. We could see enough of the river to be... More

We drove into Banff from the airport at Calgary without a reservation. Trip advisor was showing no reservation at the places we were looking at on the Main Street, Banff Ave I think it was. The Bow view lodge had a room left so we grabbed it. Although location was off the Main Street and two blocks out of the... More

We love the location, style and unique atmosphere of this hotel. Just far enough from the buses and clamor of main street to be both quiet as well as convenient. The pool/hot tub/steam room of their partner hotel are just across the parking lot. My only complaint is that the place would be perfect if the furnishings were in sync... More

We took another motorcycle ride to beautiful Banff and upon arriving rode up and down the "motel zone" looking and pricing places with our friends. We has stayed here before so told them lets see if we could find this place without remembering the name and we did. It is an awesome location to be able to walk all thru... More

We enjoyed this motel, it had older decor however the room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The motel was a very good location for accessing restaurants and shopping. We could recommend this motel for travellers, quiet and comfortable.

After I check in the Bow View Hotel room 114, I noticed that the glass door lock facing the parking lot was broken causing a potential safety issue, then when I brush my teeth before bed, the water sink was out of order too. Water could not running out smoothly. What a hotel like this with this kind of poor... More

Hotel only a five minute walk from station, booked a river view room which was worth the little extra money we paid, hotel had a seventies feel about it. Location wise was excellent, three minute walk into town. Room was very comfortable with a lovely view and balconey. If your looking for value for money, comfort and location, I would... More

If you are looking for something simple and clean, the Bow View Lodge will suit your needs. This is a no frills hotel, but we were satisfied with our stay here. Our room was clean, but it was definitely dated. The front desk staff was courteous and helpful and the location of the hotel is great (and has free parking).... More
