It isn't fancy, but is it clean and friendly and has everything you need in a hotel room. Plus, the location next to the river can't be beat! Away from the traffic and partying hordes on Banff Ave, meaning it is quiet and old-school.

Just one night stay while passing through. Dated décor, but clean and almost fully functional The two of us were assigned a two room suite with three large beds. Having no news access for the previous days, we were looking forward to seeing TV, but neither of the two worked. The desk clerk came right up and tries to fix... More

Super expensive hotel with no air conditioning, no free wifi, old, dated decor and fuzzy TVs. "River view" was mostly parking lot and street and was further obscured by the giant cupboard in front of the window.

Table & chairs, lounge, fridge, tea & coffee making. Friendly helpful staff on hand for travel advice and local info. No iron or board but for a few days... More

First impressions were ok but you can see this place is nothing really special. Underwhelming entrance and reception area. But room was ok. Nice size with room for two double beds and sofa plus table and chairs. Bit dated feel to it with the furniture and an old CRT TV in the cupboard but place is clean and tidy. Bathroom... More

Despite the fact that this lodge can look a bit outdated at first glance, we had a very pleasant stay. Our room was large, and the location was excellent, near the Bow river and downtown Banff. We had our breakfast included and this breakfast was great.

This hotel is not fancy. The rooms are small and there is limited parking. But it is close to downtown Banff without being right in the mix. If you get a room on the river side, it is a great place to stay and worth the money. We stayed two nights - the first in a very small room with... More

Great stay. Great location. Our second stay and we will return. Right downtown. Walk into Banff. Parking tight but once parked you can walk anywhere. Small balcony with mountain view. Have no complaints at all.
