Good rates, friendly staff. Restaurant was a good value. Was not too busy and had a good location between Banff and Lake Louise. The road to Banff is quiet and not too far away if you wanted to venture east or west. Great mountain views for photos. The value here is better than the other options we looked at.

The room was warm and clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom and bath was very nice. The decor could use a bit of updating, The workers were friendly and the food was well cooked. It appeared to offer good value for the area as we heard the Rockies can be somewhat expensive.

Can they bring the mountains closer so we could come more often. The nostalgia of the dining room is great. How can you improve on perfection, We love Johnston Canyon Resort and are trying to get here more often. Extra pillows in the cupboard would be nice but the service was prompt.

Not really we could have used a hairdryer and another item but other than that.. our stay was very nice and the location was great. Clean and well kept. We were in the last cabin along the bank overlooking the creek which was refreshing and quiet. Especially at night we could hear the quiet stream down the trail. It was... More

Everything was very good.The location and surroundings were very nature oriented. Checkin was friendly and efficient. We stayed in a Fireplace cottage which suited us well. Nice coffee maker and well taken care of. The ability to see the various sights in close proximity is very good too. Thank you

We enjoyed our visit. The scenery was very pleasant but there seemed to be a lack of wild life. Not sure where all the animals went. Hear there was supposed to be a lot of sightings. Maybe we were not there at the right time. The resort is well located and has a nice ambiance to it. The tap water... More

The good ones first: Johnston Canyon Lodge is excellent situated for excursions in Banff and Yoho NPs and to the Icefield Parkway The cabins are nice and rustic with a gas-fireplace. To the bad ones: When we came back to the cabin after the first day the only thing housekeeping made was to put the garbage bag from the waste... More

Great little place. The cabin was fine and the service and staff were very friendly It would be nice to have a kettle for tea and a hair dryer. The surroundings were new to us we could have used a map of the cabins including the back entrance to the trail. Other than that it was a very worthwhile stay... More

Wonderful stay and the staff was awesome. The service was prompt in the restaurant and the location is very good for sightseeing. The soup in the dining room was very good. Prices were reasonable and they may be better not to charge extra for an extra toast. We already had a good size meal on our invoice. Other than that... More

We stayed here in August and found that the location worked great for us touring around Banff and Lake Louise. The cabin is exactly what we hoped for, it had an old time cabin feel located away from all the tourists in Banff. With this location at the foot of the Johnston Canyon we were able to take a hike...
