I was skeptical about staying here because I read a lot of negative reviews about the cleanliness of the rooms and the sound of the train. But because of the price and how close it is to the National Parks, I decided to try it out. We rented the Cougar Chalet (we have 6 people, all adults).
Price: For 4 days, 3 nights we paid around $400...that's it. Extremely cheap compared to all the other million hotels we looked at in Banff and Jasper.
First the room: It was like a house. All 6 of us could sleep and walk around comfortably...there is a nice kitchen, 3 bathrooms (2 of which have showers), a fridge, utensils...basically everything that a normal house would have. The beds themselves were comfortable as well.
The train: There is a train that runs through the area, but it honestly isn't that bad at all. Just don't open your window fully and you will be alright...I actually did keep the window open for my entire 4 days stay and the train only woke me up once.
Cleanliness and staff: I was extremely surprised at all the people saying the rooms are not clean....our entire place was clean and tidy. The staff was amazing...I called them about 4 different times with questions and they never got annoyed. Very nice!
Overall, the chalets are amazing. There is a grocery store nearby (Safeway is where we shopped) and the National Parks are close as well (we were able to go to Kooteney,Banff, and Jasper!)
The next time me and my family go to hike Banff, there is no question about where we are staying...DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!!!!!!!!!
