The service and the kindness of the front desk was amazing. They gave us a brief explanation for the do and don't. Every recommendation was superb !! The gym and the spa were A class. We enjoyed our stay and if ever come back to Banff this will be the first place to revisit.

We had difficulty with our room key on arrival and required assistance, twice. This could have been dealt with sooner, it offers poor impression when weary. Once finally settled we could neither eat or even have a drink they were very busy. We were offered room service. We went elsewear and although we spent 2 nights in this hotel we...

Comfortable, clean, quiet spacious rooms, nice hotel staff. Bedding, toiletries, towels were all clean, fresh, crisp.Lovely location, 10 min walk into downtown. We returned to stay there 5 nights after not liking another hotel in that area. The Keg restaurant and bar are excellent for dinner, but the breakfast buffet is limited.

Eye appealing and pleasant entry and lobby area. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean, large, comfortable and well equipped rooms. The large spa is quite amazing and enjoyable to use. Well located on the bus routes and close to downtown Banff. You cannot go wrong with staying at the Caribou Lodge. This was our second visit and it is still one...

Driving through Banff and decided last minute to stay. Went on Priceline and found this hotel for a very good price. Pleasantly surprised with the hotel, service, and rooms. The Keg is downstairs and open for all meals. Definitely would stay here again.

We wish we had been able to stay longer as the hotel was very nice and only a short walk to the center of town. Far enough to be out of the crowds but close enough to walk in for shopping and dinner. Great pub and pub food in the hotel as well.

We stayed in 2 rooms at the Caribou Lodge for 3 nights in June 2013 at the start of our self-drive Rockies tour. Our friends had booked a standard room - we had booked a superior room. However, I would say that there was not much between the 2. Both rooms were very spacious, lovely big beds, adequate roomy bathrooms....
