“Pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

I was a little worried since we were only paying $89/night through Expedia, but we loved this resort. The room was nice and cozy and was facing the woods, so it was nice and quiet. The staff was very pleasant and helpful.

As a whole, this resort met our needs nicely and I would definitely recommend to others.

This is quite a large resort on the outskirts of Banff, but there is a shuttle bus which leaves every hour between 11 am and 11 p.m. which drops you off and picks you up from the town centre if you don't want to drive. The lodges were clean and well equipped, our two bedroom one had a bathroom both upstairs and downstairs. The bedroom we were in was quite small and it became quite hot, the windows only open slightly although there were fans in the cupboard. Shame there is no air conditioning, as it was only the end of May not sure what it will be like in August? Lots of facilities for families.

My wife and I stayed for three nights in Rocky Mountain Resort while visiting Banff. We were very impresssed by the Resort. The room we stayed in was excellent, it was very well equipped with a small kitchen, sofa and gas fire. The overall atmosphere of the resort is very friendly with very helpful staff. We would absolutely stay again!

We stayed in Junior Suite which is pretty spacious for two of us. It has a gas fire place and fire woods could be delivered at additional charge. It also has a small refrigerator, flat screen TV, love seat couch and sofa chair. Location is nice and quite but not quite a walking distance to Banff downtown especially at night. We had good rest at night we stayed. Breakfast was not included but discount coupon was given. Furniture was a bit aged. They also seen to host in-house activities and check them out if you are interested. Overall a good valued stay within the vicinity of Banff. It would be a nice choice for family to stay.

Room Tip: Corner room facing back road would be nice.

My husband and I stayed here at the end of May via an RCI exchange. We really prefer to have a kitchen accommodation when we are in the parks and hiking around so this worked out well. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The unit was good for the two of us but it is noted as sleeping 6. To be honest I would have been very dissapointed if I had come with just even one other couple. The bedrooms, upstairs, were very small, although they were comfortable, they were simply almost too small to get around. Also in general the upstairs area is very compact and shares a bathroom. The downstairs was better but sofa wasn't the most comfortable so I'm guessing as a sofa bed it wouldn't be great. Their was a fireplace and a decent kitchen area. All in all I would stay here again if the opportunity presented itself but wouldn't ever plan on 6 people.

FYI their Restaurant / Bar had very good buffalo wings!

Room Tip: I understand across the streets the units are more hotel like and not timeshare. Be vigilent when r...

We booked this property sight unseen through AA, using miles. What a gem! Peaceful, quiet, cozy - could not ask for more.
There was some confusuion about our reservation at check in. Kudos to Emma and James at the front desk for their help. . We had to wait for the manager because it was his day off. the staff could not have been more accomodating and pleasant. We stayed in a loft style the first night, then asked to be moved because of the skylight over the bed. Too much sunlight on a long summer day. Probably ok in the winter. Enjoyed the gym and the trails and the spectacular view. I highly recommend buying firewood and building a fire. The soap and shampoo are top notch. It rained almost the whole time we were there. I asked Emma, at the front desk, if she could find some sunshine. The last day we were there, the sun came out. Thanks, Emma! . I can't say enough good things about this resort! Would definitely come back.

We stayed in the one bedroom wolf condo for 4 nights in May 2013. Would recommended choosing the wolf upgrade for the extra room and full kitchen with new appliances. Very roomy for 2 people, service was excellent and the hotel even has a coin laundry on site. We liked that the resort was located a 5 minute drive out of town, was quiet and we had a lovely view of the mountains from our room. Convenient having parking on site.
