We stay here once a year and love it every time! A lot of updating has been done to the rooms, the atmosphere here is great and the manager is very friendly. Our kids absolutely love it and will be coming back every year. Thanks!

I recently stayed at the Elkhorn when in Banff for a conference. It was supposed to be a 3 night stay, but I left after 1 night...not what I expected. Why didn't I check trip advisor?? Because I am usually a positive person I'll start with what I liked about it: 1) the price ($128/night) 2) quiet surroundings 3) friendly... More

Really comfortable place, for any type of visitor. A really nice hostess and very friendly and helpful. Comfortable beds and everything is clean. Parking available and 10 min from downtown banff. It is really common to see a deer around and there are trails from walking distance.

Location is nice - walking distance to everything, the place has a charm looking from the outside but otherwise not very comfortable. The room was changed on us when we arrived there, but the lady was nice about it and we did not have much of a choice, so we went with it. We got a room with 2 bunk... More

Banff is notoriously expensive, so I was delighted to get a room here for 140 CD. The downside was that there was no breakfast nor microwave, and the walls were thin so you could faintly here TVs in other rooms and footsteps above. Yet, this is a charming little lodge. The lady running it is lovely (even giving me a... More

Lucia, the manageress, is charming and extremely helpful. We arrived having reserved the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit. It was very clean and fairly well equipped. A criticism would be that neither bathroom is en-suite, but that is a personal preference. It was good to have the comfort of a sofa for the evenings and the wifi was excellent. To... More

This hotel is a place to lay your head for a night or two. The price is reasonable for Banff. The furnishings are interesting. The room was clean. The location is the best thing about the hotel. Easy walking distance to town, the Banff Springs Hotel (worth a visit) and walking trails. we took a raft ride down the river.... More

We looked around downtown Banff for accomodations since we hadn't made room reservations ahead of time. Besides being expensive, downtown also seemed a little too trafficy with both vehicles and tourists, so decided to head south on Banff Avenue. We went over a bridge onto Spray Ave and came across the Elkhorn Lodge. It looked like a relatively quiet location... More
