We spent 2 nights here. Room was clean, location was easy walking distance to the main street, there was free wifi and the buffet breakfast at the hotel next door was very convenient. Lovely position overlooking the Bow River, and very reasonably priced.

The Bow View Lodge is in the most amazing location ever! It is about a 10 minute walk to the Greyhound Bus Station, Rocky Mountaineer, Whyte Museum and Banff Ave! Yet the place is quiet, not fancy-schmancy and clean. I also got a very good deal where included in my 7 night stay is a free pass to the Banff... More

the hotel is dated and a bit tired but it is good value. It is 60metres from the Banff Park Lodge (the sister hotel) and we were able to use all facilities there. The pool was a little cold and crowded at times but overall a good facility. The Chinook restaurant is brilliant for breakfast and the bar area was... More

With the exception of the worn lobby and elevator carpets, this hotel is clean and comfortable. I was never disturbed by noise while I was there. And at less than $100 per night, the hotel provided good value for the money. But if you are looking for a room to be part of your vacation, rather than simply enable your... More

We stayed here in between Boxing day and New Year's day and got a great rate directly from the hotel's own website. If you're fussy about the way your room & the hotel interior looks then this probably isn't the place for you as the decor is very dated, but if you're looking for a clean, practical, comfortable, quiet and...

We just stayed one night at the Bow View lodge on a road trip. We picked it because of the view and location and it was pretty cheap compared to other places in Banff. We have a room with a balcony and view over the river which was very nice. The location is pretty good as it is 2 blocks... More
