5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

The owners are awesome they made sure we felt welcome when we arrived all in all it... 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

We spent two nights in this hotel which we had booked online. It wasn't quite what we expected. Calling it rustic is stretching it a little. True the original lodge is old but the updates are only outdated. Our whole room needed to be brought into this century, pretty well new everything is needed from carpet to bathroom it even... More

We stayed there for a few nights in winter 2012. The good Great location - away from the busy main street; still close enough to shops and attractions. Reasonable price Clean and comfortable room Good service Free parking Free Wi Fi The Bad Basic accomodation - no laundry, no breakfast.
