We have stayed at this resort many times and are happy with the rustic cozy accommodations that are a little overdue for a renovation. During this visit we experienced sporadic maid service - we had to call one day in the later afternoon (5:00 p.m.) to get supplies replenished but no cleaning was done. On our last night a rowdy...

We stayed at the Douglas Fir Resort in August. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was not fancy, but the room was very comfy and we had a large TV and a gas fireplace which was nice on a cold rainy day. We used the breakfast deal which was fantastic! We cooked breakfast three days, one dinner and had cereal... More

The room was quite dated with a noisy refrigerator and a full size bed, but the location was good. Nice views and, if you have kids, they will probably LOVE the indoor pool and slide! If you are in town to hike and spend the day outdoors and are only at Douglas Fir for sleeping, this place is just right.

Fun for a rocky mountain visit. Two water slides for the kids and a hot tub for the adults. A play area for little tikes too. Rooms are very nice with a stove dish washer with the dishes. Comfy beds and all. All close to downtown fun and the gondola. Loved it! :)

We found the suites really charming. We stayed for 2 nights and got the breakfast package included. It was enough for 2 breakfasts. We found the on-site water attractions and indoor play area to be awesome and extremely useful to keep our young one happy and contented. Overall, the price per room is on the higher side, but with the... More

My wife and I love Banff and have stayed at Douglas Fir before and will stay there again. Yes the suites are very much dated and pricey but for us, it was the peace and quiet we wanted. Away from the crowds. One thing is nice is the bus that you can grab to head to downtown and back. Our... More

Booked the one-bedroom loft condo. 1st thing we noticed was the overpowering smell of wood smoke, the large tear in the sofabed, the dated wood paneling and the large wet area by the sliding doors. The DVD player did not work. To their credit, housekeeping was there very early the next morning to clean up the wet area and fix... More

The resort is off the main strip on Tunnel Mountain Rd which was fine. We were a family of four adults so the room was spacious but in serious need of updating such as no fan in the bathroom, carpets that needed cleaning, uncomfortable mattresses and furniture. The wifi was very slow. The view from our room was lovely but... More

We basically chose this hotel because it was all we could find. The grounds are nice. BBQ areas, coin laundry, convienience store, pools(indoor and outdoor), indoor water park with 2 slides, free bus passes for the transit which was real nice. Hotel staff were nice and friendly. We had a cabin type room, 2 floors. Upper floor was a loft... More

Positives: spacious for 4 people, cable TV worked well; there is a pool and water slides, but we did not use them Negatives: wifi did not work most of the time we were there, it is about 20 minutes walk from Banff's city center, outdated decor, overpriced
