This is a good place to take the family. The rooms are big, clean, comfortable and well appointed. The decor is rustic with wood paneled walls and stone-face fireplaces. Nice view of the mountains. Lots for the family to do at the hotel and around town. The in-room DVD player and connections for game consoles is a good idea. The... More

Chose this place on the basis that we were traveling with kids and the waterslides on site. They really are the perk to this property and included with your stay. The outdoor hot tub needed the water temp turned up, the hot tubs inside were much hotter. We had a one bedroom condo that had a full kitchen, separate bedroom... More

We spent our tenth anniversary here in one of the Jacuzzi suites. With the wood-burning fireplace, it was a quiet, romantic stay. We went back to Banff with my parents and stayed here again. The free bus to and from downtown is a life saver. No driving required after you check in. Ask for a mountain view, you won't be... More

We had a one bedroom loft townhome type accomodation. The kitchen was well equipped and we all found the beds comfortable. Appreciated the fireplace and the space to spread out. It was really cold while we were there so we noticed it chilly by the large patio doors. We had to wrap up in blankets if we were sitting on... More

Nice location and price point. The wood burning fireplaces are a nice touch. Kitchens are small and the rooms could use some upkeep/renovations. Front desk staff are friendly and helpful. Parking is a problem, especially if somebody parks in your spot. WiFi is spotty if that is something you need.

We stayed three days and did enjoy our stay. Banff is so beautiful. Unfortunately when we checked out one of our daughters forgot to pack her moccasins. Upon contacting the establishment I was told they couldn't find them. This was very disappointing and will definitely impact where we stay next year.

Where can beat Tunnel Mountain views? That was wonderful. As was the wood-burning fireplace in our one-bed condo. However, our experience was not all great. We rented a one bed condo with a bed in the living room in case family or friends wanted to join us for any of the 3 nights we were there. They only came for... More

Their sign, website and front desk all say the waterslides are open until 10 on Saturdays - we showed up at 8:30 and was asked if we were "public" when we said yes we were told they were closed. When I pointed out the sign, the other swimmers I was told sorry we've done our cash out - very disappointed... More

We have stayed at the Douglas Fir Resort on several occasions over the past 25 years. This was our first return with daughter’s family and grandchildren. The resort is very child friendly with an indoor waterside, a pool with hot-tub as well as an outdoor heated pool. There is also a very large child activity area with padded Jungle Jim... More

Stayed here with family and friends. We usually stay at places on the main strip, but decided to do something different... not a wise choice apparently. We were told we were booked into a loft unit, but were given a basement suite that resembled a root cellar. For the money we paid it was beyond disappointing... needless to say getting... More
