“Great location”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights and found the location excellent. We could visit all the attractions in Banff etc. easily and were also close to many other places. It was only a short walk from the B & B to shops, banks, restaurants and so on. The B & B itself was rather dated and the rooms a little small (although to be fair this was stated on their website). THe owner was there and was very helpful with plenty of advice for anyone who needed it about what to do and where to go. Rather expensive for the degree of comfort provided.

We booked 14 nights for first 2 weeks of August using the supersaver back in January which gave us a really good deal. We stayed in room 1 which had a very comfortable bed, although it tended to move a bit! The shower had good pressure, plenty of hot water and the breakfasts we found to be very good. We didn't see the famous Pascal that much but when we did, he was very knowledgable and friendly.
Best to get to the car park early, no spaces after 4pm; plenty of roadside parking if not. Room 9 situated by the smoking table, not ideal. Guest kitchen fabulous, lots of tourist info available, great method of keeping room/door key safe. Mountain view from our window, useful mosquito netting over opening window. The mosquitoes are beasts out there. Very convenient location, just 2 min walk to the main street of Banff which is a shoppers paradise. Only downside was the noise - noisy neighbours/revellers on street through the night kept us awake.
Its a good, clean, basic B & B and great value. We would stay again.

Room Tip: Room 9 near smokers table. Room 1 reasonable size.

We stayed here for two nights. The accomodations were nothing special. Clean, but very basic. Beds not very comfortable. The room was very tight, and the bathroom was so small (one person could barely fit in the shower). We could hear noises from outside through the night (we were in Room 10, on the main floor). The location is great however, within walking distance to many things downtown! And the continental breakfast was fine. For the money we payed though (although the location was good), we were not very satisfied with this B&B.

This lodge is in a great location which was definitely a highlight! We stayed in the beaver room which was quite small but very quirky which we liked. The hosts offered great advice about the area and helped us plan some trips. Breakfast was fairly simple but nice enough to set you up for the day. Would stay again.

We found the room and shower to be very small and the lighting was poor. The old building is quaint but not very comfortable, with narrow, creeky stairway. The use of the refrigerator for our picnic goods was convenient. Breakfast was the basic minimum. This was the only time on our whole 6 week trip that we found the owner of an establishment to be so curt and unfriendly, giving us the barest minimum of information when we asked for recommendations. The best thing about the Blue Mountain Lodge is its location two minutes walking from Banff's lovely main street.

They have really really small rooms. You can barely find a spot to sit in the room. Shower is extremely small as well, it can barely fit in one person. Breakfast are awful, coffee is light, bread is hard. This place is so commercialist, that nothing is done with heart. I wouldn't stay with them ever again.

Room Tip: When going to a hot spot like Banff and Jasper, always need to start looking for place way ahead of...

Blue Mountain Lodge is awesome and Pascal is the man! My boyfriend and I stayed here for 9 days the last week of March. Pascal is like a living "Choose Your Own Adventure" book - tell him what you feel like doing and he'll have an awesome suggestion for you for the day. He bags peaks and backcountry skis in his spare time and knows a lot about the surrounding areas, as well as what's happening in town. He sent us on big hikes and backcountry snowboarding/snowshoeing routes - we only bought lift tickets 3 of the 9 days we were there as Pascal had so many other fun ideas for us. The breakfast is a great plus as well, croissants and muffins etc - especially in a town where it's hard to find cheap food (I got a lukewarm coffee my first day there and nearly spat it out on the counter when the barista told me that'd be $5). Can't beat the location either, a block away from the main street. Rooms are clean and cute, and fine for two people who really like each other. Plus Pascal tells the funniest stories. If you want a quiet, cozy home away from home, cookies in the afternoon, and the local scoop on what to do in the mountains, stay here!
