“Clean and servicable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Nice hotel. All the rooms have balconys. Big rooms with amentiies such as coffee machines , two sinks and refrigerators. Smallish, older bathrooms. The Terrace dining room was spectacular! Alot of people in the bar area. Clean. Good location. Not the Banff SPrings Hotel though, but you aren't paying those prices either. Nice spa and fitness area with nice size indoor pool and jacuzzi.

We stayed just 1 night here but wish we had stayed longer. The hotel is nothing fancy from the outside but boy you walk inside and it starts to look 5 star. Immaculate pool and spa area, great restaurants and bar lounge (also serving meals). Staff from reception/check-in to the barman were so down to earth and friendly. Rooms are VERY spacious, beds very comfortable and all a short walk to the main street of town. Great value and great place to stay. I'd go back to Banff just to stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter compared to those on Lynx street which can get some traff...

If your looking for a nice and affordable place to stay, try the Banff Park Lodge. The Hotel is near the river on the edge of town, which makes it within walking distance of all the restaurants, bars and shops in town.
The hotel is spotless, the rooms were immaculate, the staff was friendly and helpful.
Ate breakfast and dinner in the hotel restaurant and had the breakfast buffet which was OK, nothing to write home about but dinner was very good.
This is not a 5 star hotel but it's a safe bet, I don't think you could go wrong booking here. It's seems like a good value.

We stayed at the Banff Park Lodge for 5 nights in August. The hotel is really nice and staff are pleasant, and helpful Our room was large and clean, we had a balcony, but there are no chairs on the balcony to sit on,so that was a real shame.
We took the Bed & Breakfast deal, but wish we hadn't, the so called hot breakfast was always cool, and no variety, maybe some grilled tomatoes or mushrooms would have been nice change.
We did actually have a meal at the bar one evening and that was excellent.
On saying all this we did enjoy our stay at the Lodge and would recommend it to friends.

Priceline sells this hotel as a 4*. Hotwire sells it as a 3*. Other sites are likely variable too. If we had bought it as a 4*, we'd have been disappointed, because, it's just not that nice. We didn't. Very solid, dated 3*. The advertised/published rate was about $110. Compared to other pricing in Banff, the Banff Park Lodge seems like a terrific deal. The location is excellent, just on the edge of the core downtown. The rooms are decent-sized, and ours was clean. It is a bit of a trip back in time (mirrored wet bar/sink feature in the room), but so what - it's a very good price. Every time we met staff in a hallway, they were resolutely friendly.
The annoying thing is that hotel apparently fills its room through tour companies and discount sites, so it makes its money by nickle-and-diming. Need to park a car? That's $10. Want WIFI? That's $10. etc. Still good value, but not as good as it may seem initially.

I recently had a conference that was supposed to take place at Banff park lodge. The problem is, The Day my Flight arrived was the same day that Calgary Flooded. I found an alternate root to get to Banff. but because of the flooding and land slides it took me three days to get from Calgary to Banff. The hotel staff was very helpful in canceling my reservations each day until I had arrived. Once I had arrived the hotel was very nice and the staff very friendly, they assisted me with every need way above expectations. At the end of my stay they assisted me in getting a refund from Book-it .com for a hotel that I had booked in another city. I spent the remainder of my trip hiking and camping. Banff Park lodge made a bad situation with the flooding a most pleasant and memorable trip.

This property has to be the best value in Banff. It is ideally located just off Banff Avenue yet close to all the shops and restaurants. The room was spacious and clean with a comfortable bed ensuring a good night's rest. An excellent buffet breakfast was included in the tarriff. When I next visit Banff this will be my hotel of choice.
