“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

My wife and 2 others stayed here in July 2013, my wife and I having stayed the previous Christmas and been very impressed then. This hotel is a solid, no-fuss place on the main street close to the restaurants and shops. In cold weather the outdoor spa area is very enticing, and hot cider is offered in the lobby. The rooms we had were clean and quiet. The staff at the front desk are friendly and knowledgeable about the town. Recommended.

We had a room on the ground floor at the back of the hotel. The room was nicely appointed, very modern looking, as was the bathroom. There was a strange ramp down to the bedroom as you enter which we stumbled up/down a few times during our stay. There is a large heated pool and spa as well as a sauna, steam room and showers. Plenty of fresh towels available. Try to use the facilities - they're great! Might get busy in peak season but was quiet when we stayed.

We walked into town every day to shop and again at night time for dinner. Great location. Front desk staff were friendly as were the breakfast staff. Breakfast itself was good, plenty of fresh fruit, muesli cereals and yoghurt as well as different baked pastries/muffins every day.

Really enjoyed our stay and would recommened.

I booked a ski and stay package at Banff Aspen Lodge in December 2013. Checking In they upgraded us to a bigger room which was awesome- one king bed and two single beds for the two of us. They explained everything very well at check-in including the hours and location of the free breakfast (good, great service) and the underground parking (small).

The room was great, everything looked upgraded and nice sheets on the beds. Bathroom was clean and separate from the sinks which was awesome.

Best perk was the outdoor hottubs in the center of the hotel. Our room overlooked these.

Overall, good value, good location (walking distance to everything), helpful staff. Only thing missing was a lounge :(

The Banff Aspen Lodge has a great location, only a few minutes walk from the busy section of Banff Ave. On arrival the staff were very helpful and friendly, giving advise on how to find things. The room was great, spacious and well appointed. Housekeeping do an excellent job and the room was kept very clean throughout our stay. Breakfast is also great, a large selection of items and bacon, eggs etc every other day. We were skiing, the ski locker is large with plenty of space and the hotel provide locks to secure your kit. Ski bus stops very close by. A coffee shop has just opened in reception which offers a further range of coffee and snacks. Overall I'd definitely stay again and would recommend this hotel.

I have stayed here numerous times and each time it's been great. The outdoor hot tub is a great spot to unwind and the rooms are updated and clean. The front desk has been helpful whenever we've needed it and the included breakfast is just perfect. Nothing exciting but more than adequate. For an expensive town, Aspen Lodge is terrific value and I'll be back.

We got this hotel on a mid-week deal. We stay in Banff a lot so we were a bit timid to stray from our usual hotels. We were pleasantly surprised with our room. We had great in room beverage choices and the bedding was comfortable. The room was clean and very quiet. We loved the outdoor hot tubs. They were piping hot and never overcrowded. We didnt want to drive back to Calgary on our check out date due to Blizzard. The staff were very accommodating giving us a late check out to decide if we wanted to stay another night. Thanks and will be a returning guest!

This hotel was everything we were looking for for our weekend escape to Banff. The first thing I noticed was that everything looked exactly the same as the photos online.
We were looking for an inexpensive room with a few perks for two nights in Banff. We don't ski and were looking to simply relax.
The staff are very polite.
Room was spotless.
Obvious recent upgrades.
Hot tubs, steam rooms and sauna were always spotless and stocked full of towels.
Free breakfast was delicious - not your typical bread and waffles. A great selection of breads, loaves, boiled eggs, meats and cheeses.
Location was perfect - short walk to downtown
Bathroom had separate area with double sinks - any one who travels with their significant other knows this is a great bonus!
We received an upgrade to a Premium King room with two single beds in a separate room - this would have been perfect for a group of friends or a family.
