The rooms aren t fancy but they have an old charm that seems fitting for a hotel here.there was nine of us total and we had enough beds. 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 True the original lodge is old but the updates are only outdated.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.

We booked here for one night in one of the basic rooms #9. Disappointed considering it cost us $167 (incl. taxes) for something so basic. It was old and the decor was out dated, and had a musty old smell to it. The positive is that it was clean. So clean that the towels smells like bleach. There's no common... More

We stayed in Banff for 3 nights. Elkhorn lodge is ideally located just over the bridge from the main Banff street. This means a short stroll (10 minutes) in to town and no noise at night. The owner was really helpful. We stayed in room #9 which was one of the basic ones. It was really comfortable with good bed... More
