An excellent place to stay in Banff away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. The rooms were small but had many good features including lots of hooks to hang hats, coats, towels and robes. The Keg room restaurant was noisy but the service and food were top notch. A small negative was the uncertain feeling in the elevators when...

I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights with my wife. The hotel provides free wi-fi and parking, and also free local calls. The hotel room was very modern, spacious and clean, and the decor was in keeping with the character of the hotel, although it did not have air conditioning. We booked a double room which had a very...

We stayed here for three nights after getting off the Rocky Mountaineer train and picking up our rental car. It is one of many hotels, some very similar in design (one day we drove into the underground car park of another similar hotel just down the road thinking it was ours!!), along the one main road in Banff. It was...

A cozy, luxurious spot to retreat to after a day of walking around downtown Banff. From the beautiful, peaceful to the extremely comfortable beds and spacious upscale bathrooms...this hotel delivers. I had mentioned that it was my birthday trip and they even surprised me with a handwritten card and complementary bottle of champagne. Wonderful huge hot tub attached to the...

Having read some bad reviews of this motel , we were a bit nervous of staying here. But our stay could not have been better. The lodge is situated about a 10 minute walk from Banff centre and as you walk into Banff you pass all the other motels which are situated all along the main street. The motel staff...

Stayed here 4 times since 2002 for our annual ski vacation. The rooms are a good size and beds are comfy. Lovely reception area with seating and big log fire. The bar is a lovely place to unwind after a hard day skiing and the Keg restaurant is good with delicious food. Ski lockers are in the underground car park....

We stayed at the Caribou Lodge for two nights at the end of our Rocky Mountaineer train excursion. We thought the hotel was great and no complaints at all. Rooms were spacious, beds very comfortable and overall it was very quiet. As mentioned, there is no aircon, as I imagine that for the majority of the time there is no...
