The day was cold, the conference was draining, I arrived at the hotel and felt like I had come home. The clerks were beyond courteous. They were caring, empathetic, and eager to help, even offering suggestions about things one might never have dared to ask. The room itself was comfortable...remember that lovely word "cozy"?...well, it was cozy. My room even afforded me a restful view of Mt. Rundle. Need more shampoo? No problem. Need an extra glass. With pleasure! I almost hated going home, but then, after all, home really is home. This experience, however, was the next best thing. Thank you.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have a better view.

we stayed at the Bow lodge for 3 nights on our journey through the Rockies from Vancouver to Calgary. On arrival the reception staff were very helpful and polite. Our room was on the 3rd floor facing the Bow River.....'What a View to see first thing in the morning'.
Our room was a large room with a nice size bed which was very comfortable, coffee maker, fridge, shower over bath with plenty of toiletries. A balcony to sit outside & a large, if not a bit outdated TV (but who watches a lot of TV when you are staying in one of the most beautiful places in the world).
The room was warm very clean...maybe to some the décor would be considered outdated, but to us on only paying $80.00 per night we were more than happy, especially when we had stayed in other hotels for a lot more money per night during our trip and were considerably more outdated.
The sister hotel was very glamorous, but their rooms did not have the lovely river views, however it was nice to be able to use the pool, steam room & Jacuzzi.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who appreciates a nice clean accommodation with a lovely view (just request a river view room).
Would definitely stay again......without a doubt.

Room Tip: River View Room

We had a room at the back of the hotel facing the Bow river. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. I loved being able to go out on the balcony and look out over the river and up at the mountains. The hotel is a few blocks away from Banff Ave but it's a quick walk and you're right in the action. The only drawback to the balcony is that it's connected all the way around and they advise locking the door to keep your belongings safe. Still worth having the balcony. We had a great stay and want to book our next trip back at the Bow View.

The room was clean. We enjoyed the river view and little balcony. There was a very large buck on the property, just laying down and chewing, so that was our first wild animal sighting upon arriving in Alberta. Close to the rest of town to walk to dinner but on a side street and quiet. We appreciated the service at the front desk. Warning: Wifi is not free. There is no restaurant in the motel so we ate at Melissa's around the corner which was adequate. This was a good choice for a one night stay on our way to Jasper.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view or all you will see is the parking lot and the rear of the sister hotel.

We stayed here (2) nights as part of a Canadia Rockies bus trip. The location is very good and beautiful. The rooms are small but comfortable with a small deck with sliding doors. Easy walking (2) blocks in to town surounded by mountains. Wi-fi available for $5 dollars per night, although they let us have it for free. The only negative was that you could here the ajacent room doors when guests were leaving or returning to their rooms. I would definitly stay here again.
