Best Western Plus Siding 29 Lodge
Ranked #15 of 33 Hotels in Banff
Reviewed August 7, 2013

A few things that made our stay enjoyable here are:
Quick check-in & check-out
TV didn't work when we got there but maintenance fixed it promptly
King size bed is comfy and room temp control was perfect
Fast elevator service from underground parkade to 3rd floor
Ice machines have plenty of ice to fill up coolers in the summer
Nice view from the hotel pool
The cold lemon water at the entrence is a nice touch
Hot Buffet breakfast is good but small room copared to number of total guests
About 10 minute walk to main shops in town
A bit pricier than other similar hotels in that area

Room Tip: King rooms are spacious for a couple

Very pricy, small room. Reserved a balcony room, but when we got there, non were available. Staff not friendly at all. Every time I went to front desk, I had to ring a bell and wait for help. Not up to parr for a Best Western Plus.

Best Western was a good choice for us. The beds were great and the breakfast was nice, although it would have been good to have some fresh fruit available as well. The room had a balcony which was nice and the scenery was great. Service was good. Location is right off the main street and close to shopping, restaurants and the centre of town. All in all, a very good experience.

Spent 3 days in Banff with the family. We were in a 2 room suite (2Q in one, 1Q in the other) so lots of room for everyone. Yes it was pricey (summer tourist destination) but it was worth it to not have everyone crawling over each other. You're far enough removed from downtown Banff (it can get a bit noisy as some revellers leave the bars) yet an enjoyable 5 minute walk to get there. Overall cleanliness of the room was good but the carpet was showing its age. Breakfast buffet is standard BW fare, pool area was well maintained. Parking is the biggest drawback. It was great when we were just walking and could leave the car in the parkade. However, there isn't a lot of spaces and sometimes you end up on the street. Good luck finding a spot close to the hotel. Also, no large trucks in the parked - it's really tight for space/height.

There are lots of very nice hotels and lodges in Banff, and except for its location this is not one of them. An older property. Staff was friendly, room was clean. It was OK, but we'll try something different next time.

The hotel is clean and a good choice. It is not right in the city centre but within a 15-minute walking distance. We got free underground parking which was convenient to access.

We got a room on the top (3rd) floor which was spacious and had high ceilings due to being under the roof. The internet worked well.

There is a small breakfast room with a decent selection of food, nothing special but adequate. The service was good, not particularly friendly but just fine.

All in all a good choice for a good price.

Room Tip: Request one on the higher floor (of three)

I stayed for 3 nights at the BW in Banff, then again for another night on my way back to the States from Jasper. On both occasions, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and comfortable. On my first stay, the room I had was a king bed at the end of the hall, and it felt more private and spacious. (My second stay was a 2 Queen bed room.) The one negative about the room(s) was that it lacked a work desk. I am a photographer and need to use my laptop to edit photos at night, and the only table in the corner was a little uncomfortable for working. The room had a nice refrigerator to store cold drinks in the evening. The hotel is a little ways from the main downtown area, but certainly walkable in 15-20 min. Parking is under the hotel, and can get very tight in the evening. The pool area was lacking in terms of space. Windows open onto the pool on all sides, so you could have an audience while swimming. There were only a couple of chairs in the pool area, so I'm not sure what happens once those are taken. The pool itself is small, but adequate for a quick dip. The breakfast area definitely needs to be expanded. There were maybe a dozen tables in all, with a waiting line for the tables when I visited. The food was a typical hotel breakfast, but I felt rushed knowing that other people were waiting for my table. Overall, a good choice in Banff, away from the bustle of the main tourist areas, and probably cheaper than many of the other options. If felt it was a good value for the price paid.
