Favorite place to stay in Banff . . rooms clean . . nice pool access in neighbouring hotel . . can't beat the river view . . rooms on second and third floor with private balconies and river view the best.

Everything was absolutely great about the hotel the only downside, was when we went to pick up our bags at the desk, there was a clerk by the name of Carmelo or Carmela that was extremely rude to other guests at the desk and totally unprofessional other then that again the lodge was great and we hope to stay there...

We spent 1 night here and have no complaints at all.... Staff was friendly, room was clean and it was right next to the river. It's also downtown, so in walking distance to everything there. How good can you get it 😃

Stayed here for two nights and was eager to leave. The place is going downhill and needs maintenance. The lobby is shabby. Both the bathtub and sink drains in our room were plugged and barely emptied. We told the front desk and the staff thanked us, but why hadn't room service mentioned this earlier? The price is reasonable for the... More

One of the loveliest view room we ever had! Great view of Bow View River... If you want a great room and view, the beautiful king room with view is the best room in the lodge. We loved this place. I don't think you can find a better view in Banff. We loved all of Banff and would definitely go... More

Pleasant stay here for the most part. The location is pretty good just along the Bow River on the outer edge of town making it very quiet at night time. Staff was friendly and helpful with check in even though we were a little early. The rooms are definitely dated and of average size (esp. the bathroom). Screen doors were... More

This hotel is by no means fancy, but in a beautiful setting and good breakfast at sister hotel. We had a room facing the river and mountains, which was extremely relaxing. I do believe dogs are allowed, although we did not have ours with us. Cxxxxxxxxcxxxxx

Clean and basically ok, but needed updating. Couldn't have windows open as the fly nets had holes in or didn't cover all the window. We didn't use any of the facilities as we were only staying briefly and had a busy itinerary.

Our room overlooked parking lot. Balconies were separated by a single bar which would make it quite easy to go onto other balconies. Not the most secure set up. Room a bit dated but it was very clean. I have stayed in a room that overlooked the river and the path that the carriages and horses take. That was very... More
