We stayed here for 6 nights in Jult 2011. Stayed in a chalet with loft. This unit was perfect for our family of four. Will stay here again.

We stayed here because I got good rate thought it would be nice to outside of Banff. The parking is extremely tight and a real pain. Our lower level executive suite room was ok but only a view of the noisy road. The bed was comfy. The only restaurant is very pricey 5* across the street and it's a HIKE down and up the hill. Bus does not run on schedule but driving into town and parking was not a problem. They come by too early at 815am to service the room. Overall, I think spending a bit more and be in a better location would be worth it.

Best value for your money, facilities were very clean and they have hot tubs and a pool but you need a car to get down to the main town strip where all the shops and restaurants are. It is located up a large hill and there is no magnificent views from here if that is what you are looking for.
The front staff are not very friendly and the beds were not the most comfortable but worth the price for what you got because most other places in banff are much more expensive.

Just spent three nights with family, we booked two executive suites via Expedia at an amazing rate.

We arrived with mixed expectations based on some mediocre reviews and were pleasantly surprised!

Both suites were huge and featured king beds with 40" flat screed TV, separate sitting area with leather sofa and large deck, but the wow was the bathroom!!, huge jacuzzi tub, steam shower, double vanities with granite counters, all looked recently reno'd ... also microwave and fridge. Rooms were spotless as well, as views included Mt. Rundle, the morning light was especially dramatic and I enjoyed my coffee on the deck both mornings!

The location was ideal, up a short hill from town, about a 15 minute walk but you had the feeling you were camping, surrounded by forests with mountain views on all sides!

Didn't use the pool or hot tubs and the bathrooms were like your own private spa!!

I was reluctant to write this as I wished to keep Tunnel Mtn Resort a family secret.

This was our first vacation as a couple and we absolutely loved the resort! We stayed in the executive suite for 5 nights, the tub and steam shower were fantastic and we spent a lot of time at the "spa" that the resort has - a huge hot tub, steam room and sauna. We found the location of the resort very convenient as it was not right in busy downtown Banff, but up the hill and a bus stop was right outside the main entrance so we didn't have to worry about driving/parking in Banff. Bus fare is only $2 or $5 for a day trip so we bussed everywhere. Really nice and helpful staff and an overall great place to spend your vacation!

Good value in a slightly older style resort. The resort is on the outskirts of the town so a car is useful.
