To make a long story short: Rooms are ok. There is a terrible noise because of the room fridge. The breakfast is a joke since you have to wait for hours (around 100 rooms and only 15 tables at the restaurant). The waiters did their best though. Service at the front desk is quite poor. I think they are fed... More

Banff Aspen Lodge perfectly located on the main street still gives you quiet moments in your room. Very friendly staff at the reception with 'happy to help' approach. Two families visited this hotel on 4 th and 5th August, 2014. Breakfast was good too. (only place on our tour where it was included in the price!) Free parking and free... More

Very convenient location, in the center of town. We hardly used our car and walked everywhere. Parking is free but space is tight. Staff is friendly and accommodating. I asked for a quiet room and got one in the back on the second floor where we could open our balcony door for fresh air. No views but that was ok... More

The hotel is in the centre of Banff, and you do not get a great view from your room. It is however very convenient for banff, and you can walk from there to anywhere in Banff within about 15 minutes. The breakfast room is quite small, and you sometimes have to queue for breakfast. They do not do evening meals,... More

This was a lovely little hotel on the main street, a couple of blocks from the main shopping area, we didn't notice any street noise. The hotel was clean, although the exterior was showing signs of needing a bit of a paint, understandable given the harsh winter environment. The room itself was clean and spacious, with a balcony overlooking the... More

You can't beat the location of this nice little hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable, with sort of standard motel features, and that was just fine. (When visiting Banff, the last thing you want to do is sit around in your hotel room.) There was a small fridge, which is very handy, and we had two TVs, one in... More

On arrival great friendly staff at the desk. The room was clean, comfortable and of a generous size with a balcony. At night it was peaceful and easy for sleeping. Breakfast was more than ample with pads of selection including fresh fruits, cereal, yogurt, porridge, and hot buffet. A hot tub was in use most of the time we were... More

The Banff Aspen Hotel is located in Banff on the main shopping street Banff Avenue. This is a great place. I checked in this afternoon for a 2 night stay during Canada Day celebrations. (I did not know that was happening when I made the reservations). The lobby was very modern and up to date. Right on the main street... More

We booked a Premium room, which was in a secondary building with a central area around the pool and hot tub. Our room was large, with a balcony overlooking the (mostly quiet) rear parking lot. The room had a comfy queen beed, a sofa, small table with 2 chairs, small desk, and large unit with television, small refrigerator, coffee &... More

Hi walkerbob, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am glad that you enjoyed most of your stay with us. With a full hotel it can sometimes cause our wireless to be slow. I am happy to see that we are finishing a upgrade to the wireless system which will allow for a much faster connection. More

We asked for a quiet room when booking more than six months prior and received a room near two streets making it very noisy. Lots of noise from some of the houses near the back of the hotel, and lots of noise from people on the side street. And of course there are the trains, which you are not far... More

Hi golfslw Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Our hotel is located on Banff Avenue which is the main street of Banff. It is a busy town during the summer and thus there is noise from the streets and neighbouring community. Unfortunately I cannot control the noise of people outside of the hotel. The trains are...
