Banff Rocky Mountain Resort
Ranked #26 of 33 Hotels in Banff
Reviewed December 2, 2013

This place is located a few minutes outside of the town and I finally decided to stay there when I saw a deal on the place. Our room was not small, it had a gas fireplace that warmed the room nicely, we had a view of the forest and when you openned the door to our room we were close enough to the trees to expect to see wildlife. I was pleased with what we got for the price and there was nothing wrong with anything there. The bedding and pillows were not the highest quality and I was not fooled into thinking 5 star accommodation. The breakfast buffet was similar to the better free hot breakfasts you get in urban areas, but this one was over ten dollars each. The outdoor hottub was filled with noisy people, but they had a quiet indoor one and a sauna that heated up nicely. Don't be scared to stay here, if you don't mind not being able to walk to anywhere else.

Room Tip: I would take a room with a forest view on the bottom floor. Ski racks outside the door.

The 2 bedroom condo was great size wise but certainly not upgraded to the standard of some others we saw. That was acceptable based on what we paid for it though, so that's okay. It is a long way out of town so don't plan on walking into banff itself - especially in winter. The regular shuttle works fine though. The biggest issue was this place had the crappiest free wifi ever. Hence this is getting posted from calgary airport on their much better free wifi! Still would stay again but might get a bit pickier on rooms if we booked far enough in advance.

Room Tip: You probably have to engage with them and ask about the standard before you book online

We had a large room in an outer building, with a stunning view over the mountains. Spent three nights here which were memorable. The front desk staff striven to fulfill every single demand we had. Excellent overnight sleep. This place is located in the outskirts of Banff, in the middle of a forest, but there is a shuttle to the city if you don't have a car. It was pricey, but all hotels in Banff are the same, so I might even consider it as a deal.

We stayed here as a group of friends. Found the room to be very comfortable, it had everything we needed. Rooms were great, on the smaller size but overall everything we needed. Cleanliness of the room was the only issue, the shower could have been cleaned a little better, but overall pleasant

While we had a great time, the units were a little on the small size and a little bit noisy from the neighbours. Couldn't asked for a better location though, accessible, close to all you want to do and see. Customer service was a little non existent especially in the bar area, which is a shame really and I think because the staff are not long term so don't really take on board what you are saying especially when it is a complaint. Wifi was dreadful and was constantly down, this could be improved.

Room Tip: Ask for one away from the roads and one that has been insulated to take away the noise of neighbours...

We stayed in Banff in late September and thoroughly enjoyed the town and surroundings. Whilst we were comfortably in our stay at the Banff Rocky Mountain Resort (comfy beds, good sized rooms etc), we endured several issues: the Wi-Fi was consistently slow or not working, and the front desk dismissed our enquiries by saying it must have been peak usage times. We tried to access the Wi-Fi many times and there were always problems. Secondly, when we booked online, we booked and paid for a breakfast each, for the 2 mornings we were there. This was clearly stated on the invoice. Upon arriving we were given a card/voucher to use for the breakfast the next morning. When we arrived for breakfast, we were informed we had only one choice from the menu (!) and then the card was handed back to us, we assumed for use on the second morning. On the second morning, we were informed the card was only good for one breakfast each. We discussed this with the manager at checkout, because we had prepaid $16CA each for what we thought was 2 breakfasts each, however the menu option we had cost $10.50CA - so why would the internet option be $6 more? He was completely adamant, refused to acknowledge our annoyance and nothing was offered in return. It was a shambles. I'd happily stay in the room again, but because of our experience with the staff and service, I absolutely refuse to stay again.

Our room was very comfortable and we enjoyed our week there. Our room was overlooking the mountains and back far away from the main road that we didn't hear any traffic noise. There is a computer in the restaurant which is very slow at times, but that may be because of the area. The front desk staff were very helpful with things. When we had a problem with the thermostat, someone from housekeeping came within 5 minutes.

Room Tip: Being on the ground floor did not have any problems
