“Banff hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Great place to stay around. Great swimming pool.
Nice service and rooms.

Good place as for a vacation.

The location is quite central and thus very convenient to star travels.

Should be better over the winter!

This is a cheap roadside motel, with some renovated condos. That's it. Yes, the Wolf condos are relatively new, so if you're going to stay here, choose one of those. But do not make the mistake of getting your hopes up. I don't have time to enumerate the problems we had with this place. Exhibit one was that I had to order a front desk person to physically come to my room so that I could show them the thick layer of dust around the edge of the bedroom floor after two days of calling to ask for a proper housekeeping visit. (Other issues - soft beds, rock-hard pillows, housekeeping at 6:30 pm, long check-out lines, dirty pool, jungle gym literally falling apart - hazardous, 20-year-old playpen offered to us in lieu of the crib we had confirmed, not in town so you have to drive to dinner, very small condo, no conditioner in the shower, etc.) Bottom line is that Banff is inside a national park. As such, development is strictly limited, there is no new construction, and no competition/reason for hotels to improve. IF we ever return, we'll stay in Canmore - way better options just 15 minutes away. Next year, we'll return to Aspen, CO.

We stayed here beginning of July 2013. Travelled from Calgary after the stampede to stay here. The 1 bedroom is way way way too small. Maybe for 1 person. We upgraded to a 2 bedroom and loved it. Omg. It was so close to the town and so close to everything . We loved it here. Would have been fantastic if the was an outdoor pool. Omg wait until u see the mountains. Love to return

Lovely, well equipped accommodation, very clean and modern. Great beds, dishwasher and on site laundry. No air con but fans provided. Use of bbq was an unexpected bonus. The pool is very tired and needs updating. Located some distance from town although a shuttle bus is provided. Overall is very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: choose a wolf condo

My wife and I stayed here for one night. 30th Aug 2013. We had requested a queen bed but instead were given a room with two full beds. We were told nothing else is available. Then we realized they gave us a room on the second floor. In spite of requesting a room on 1st floor, since my wife cannot go up stairs due to health problems, they refused to change our room.
No internet was available in the night. They gave us a coupon for the restaurant in their premises, however we couldn't go since it was on the lower levels which meant taking stairs. The coffee maker in the room did not work, we had to make it work. The only + was the scenery. Apart from that this place did not feel like it was worth the money charged for one night stay.

I have been to Banff several times over the years and had no idea there was a fabulous resort area such as this one.

This hotel is the first one you see when you arrive in Banff, some say its too far off the strip which I can understand, but for people like us who travelled by car-it was PERFECT! Never traffic to get in OR out.

When we got in, we were automatically upgraded to the Wolf Suite which was lovely. We even bought firewood ($7) and had a nice hot fire. The suite is highly upgraded with lots of attention paid to details such as wolf fixtures on the cabinets, wolf pictures done up IN the wall...and lots of natural wood.

We loved the idea of a loft bedroom that was partially open to the living space. Also great is that there were TWO full baths in this suite...included 2 showers.

The pool is quite nice indoors though not heated which I found odd...it was rather cool. The hot tubs both indoor and outdoors were great and the sauna was a nice touch.

We really enjoyed our stay and wished we could have stayed another night. Since we went on a long weekend, we paid $149 a night which was pricey but worth it for this space. Go for it!

Room Tip: Ask for the Wolf Suite....it's worth the upgrade!
