if you are in need of accommodation in Banff, this is your place. I choose a suite with a king size bed. Its located close to all the stores and restaurants in Banff. The room was spacious, the hotel is clean, the bathrooms were clean, the refrigerator was useful. The only down side was the curtains didn't keep out the...

The rooms are quite small but they are clean and there was a mini fridge in our room, which was nice. We had an issue with the tv. I was surprised that they hadn't updated it with a flatscreen. It's a bulky tube tv and when we had the fan on in the room (which we brought with us) you...

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of The Heart of The Rockies Tour. Our room was adequate, walls rather thin as we could here the couple in the next room. No kettle in the room, but one was provided by reception staff when requested. Everything else we needed was there although in general the room was somewhat basic, but...

Although the rooms are quite dated, they were spacious and clean, and the staff were helpful and friendly. The location is really good, close to the town centre and a few minutes from the beautiful Bow River. We were a bit surprised that the wifi wasn't included though!

I required a basic clean room that was close to the Hospital. The Bow View Lodge fit the bill exactly! Pleasant staff clean rooms across the street from the hospital - and not exorbitantly priced! Thank you so much!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights, and we were glad to leave. It's not really bad, it just needs some love. The whole place is very dated, from the bathroom fittings to the tv. The walls are thin, we could hear the people next door. The 2nd level that we were on had a pub carpet smell...

We have stayed here a few times and have always been happy with everything! The staff are friendly and helpful. The location cant be beat, its across from the Bow river and a couple blocks away from the shops and restaurants. Sunday brunch at the Chinook in the hotel across the alleyway is the best in town. And most importantly...

This motel is connected to the hotel in front of it so you can use the pool and steam room at there location. It is good and clean and offers one of the best values for accommodation in Banff which tends to be expensive in high season.

Nothing fancy here but your in Banff so you will be outside more than in. Pleasant looking rooms. Clean and comfortable. A little dated but again this is reasonably priced and in a good location to all things to see and do in Banff keep the price down so you can afford Banff. The river views are awesome and yes...
