We stayed at the Caribou Lodge in Banff for two nights in September.
We found this hotel to be extremely expensive and over-priced for what you got. We decided to stay here because alot of reviews for other places in Banff on Trip Advisor complained about cleanliness and noise problems.
Our room was reasonably clean but small. The bed was comfortable but there was nothing special about our room. The foyer was impressive and there is a Keg restaurant that forms part of the hotel - we didn't try the food there though so we can't comment on that.
Our room did not have air conditioning or any way to control the temperature - only a small desk fan in the corner. This was another disappointment considering the price we paid for the room.
There were also noise problems here - you could hear the door to every other room slam shut which was a very annoying wake up call.
Word of warning - this is where all the parties on tour buses stay as well - so it gets extremely busy.
The location was good - only a short walk into town.
Summing up this place was not worth the money we paid to stay here - but I suppose thats what you get in Banff. Next time we go back to the Rockies we will probably give Banff a miss and stay in Canmore - where we found places alot nicer for half the price!
