Stayed here with my husband for 2 nights. Arrived and found our king room to be really really small. The staff at the front were polite and moved us to a different room right away, which was nice. The room is adequate, but nothing special. Bathroom would be much better with a larger bathtub or at least a tapered back.... More

The hotel has been updated. The room is nice and staff are friendly and helpful. Parking is free (this is only one of a few in Banff) as is Wi Fi. Location is near the end of the strip but the walk is not that far to downtown. Beds are OK. Rooms are hot as there is no air conditioning.... More

We stayed here for one night. The hotel is very pleasant, as was our room. The staff were helpful and friendly. However, it was too warm, and we were told it was nor possible to turn the heating down but to use a fan instead. There did not appear to be a working extractor fan in the bathroom either. We...

Beds are terrible. We got the "superior" room with "mountain luxury beds". Not sure what their definition of luxury is but these beds must have been bought at uncle Ed's bargain basement. Elevator seems like a death trap Not enough parking in the hotel parking lot so you have to park way behind the hotel.it would only make sense that... More

We spent one night at the Banff Caribou Lodge and Spa and really enjoyed it. We were very surprised at this hotel given the really affordable rate we paid. The rooms were very clean and spacious and the beds were super comfortable. There is a Keg restaurant in this hotel which was also very good, although super expensive.

My initial experience checking in set the tone for my weekend. Began with argument with front desk that Visa Debit as per my bank is as good as using credit card and I'd be paying up front for my whole weekend so shouldn't be a problem. Front desk clerk proceeded to lecture me on not being able to book anything... More

We decided to get away April 13th for one night and chose the Banff Caribou Lodge and Spa on short notice. We booked online through the hotel website. The price was great for Banff and included breakfast which would have been an extra $15.95 /person otherwise. All you can eat buffet for two for an additional 10 bucks is hard... More

We found the hotel clean, the staff were friendly, and the beds were really comfortable. The hotel has wood burning fireplaces and make the hotel smell really great. The hotel has a rustic, cozy feeling with all the wood, and fireplaces. The restaurant was very convenient and fast. The spa was excellent!! We forgot our suits, but the next time... More

This place was great from the moment we stepped in the door. The friendly front desk staff gave us great tips on places to eat during our stay and where to rent skis. The room was very nice, well kept, and with nice contemporary touches- comfy linen, nice pillows and photos on the walls. It was so nice having a... More
