“Good stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

The hotel is certainly not the nicest, but value for money spent is excellent. I was pleased with the room size and complimentary breakfast. The noise from the room above was noticeable, but we were able to drown it out with the fan in the room. We requested a balcony, but didn't get it, but we appeared to be on the backside of the hotel where it was quieter. Nice stay and will go back.

I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We definitely aren't the fanciest hotel in Banff, but we certainly offer our guests a great large room and a fantastic breakfast in the morning.

See you next time!

Very clean with big rooms and a great breakfast, which is included in the price. The location is very close to restaurants and shopping. Underground heated parking. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Good value for the money.

Short walk to town. All the different services to the big 3 are 50 yards or less pickup and dropoff.

Staff were very helpful helping us to arrange things.

Nice idea to throw you a free drink for the economy option to not have the room serviced.

Nice hot tub area.

Room was very comfortable, clean, and the best bed/pillows I've ever had at a hotel. The hot tub apres ski was warm and inviting, the staff was courteous and helpful, and had a tasty breakfast bar including eggs, bacon, sausage, yogurt, granola, assorted breakfast breads, fruit, etc. Parking, both above and below ground, was plentiful and free! The lodge was clost to public transportation to the ski slopes and within walking distance to the downtoen shopping/restaurant area. I'd stay there again tomorrow!

Room Tip: ask for one of the rooms in the front of the hotel, preferably on the 3rd floor, for a view of the m...

I recently stayed at the Aspen Lodge with a group of 9 guys for a stag and we had a great time.

The rooms were perfect size, clean and spacious.

The outdoor hot tubs were a special touch which we took advantage of many times during our stay.

The staff was amazingly friendly, the desk manager Sue was easy to deal with and never said a word if we were a little loud (which we easily could have been in the late afternoon, early evening in the hot tub area) But we were always gone in the evenings.

They run a very efficient ship at the Aspen Lodge and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, cozy place to stay which in Banff.

The walk to the heart of Banff Ave was 5 minutes, and we had everything we could need just minutes from our door.

The only thing keeping it from being an excellent was that our last night we had room 110 which is right off the lobby. So as early at 6 a.m. there was a bit of noise from people coming and going which made it a little tough to sleep as we didn't have to get up until about 730.

There is also a shuttle right next door that traveled to all 3 resorts in the area.

We booked the trip with ski3 and they took really good care of us. Would deal with again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms near the stairways on each floor. They can get noisy in the early morning. Es...

Our room was located near the main exit/entrance to the hot tub area and was very noisy in the mornings or late nights with people coming back or leaving the hotel. They also felt the need to vacuum outside my door both mornings before I was up. Otherwise, the room was very spacious, the dual sinks was awesome and the living room area was perfect for our stay. The bathroom could have used more light, as the LED stuff they had in there wasn't enough. Breakfast was great both days and the hot tub area was very relaxing! I'd stay here again without question.

Room Tip: Avoid a room close to the lobby if you enjoy sleeping in.

We stayed here in January this year for a ski trip and were really pleased. Not much to look at from the outside but inside was modern and clean. Helpful reception staff .
The room was spacious and cleaned daily. Great coffee machine, tv, lighting and comfy furniture. Fridge was a little noisy of a night but could be unplugged if requested. Plenty of storage for us and although our balcony was on the main road there was no problem with noise.
Outdoor hot tub was a great, unusual setting , lovely of a night with the fire lit. Towels provided. Steam room available too. Laundry facilities were easy if needed.
Breakfast was great with alternating hot/cold. Plenty to choose from and staff great. Gave us some useful local information.
We didnt have any problems at all. Great location by the supermarket and banffs shopping stretch. Easy reach to restaurants and bars. Would definately revisit

Room Tip: we had a room with 2 queen beds. Room was large so we used one side for dressing.
