This hotel is by no means fancy, but in a beautiful setting and good breakfast at sister hotel. We had a room facing the river and mountains, which was extremely relaxing. I do believe dogs are allowed, although we did not have ours with us. Cxxxxxxxxcxxxxx

Clean and basically ok, but needed updating. Couldn't have windows open as the fly nets had holes in or didn't cover all the window. We didn't use any of the facilities as we were only staying briefly and had a busy itinerary.

Our room overlooked parking lot. Balconies were separated by a single bar which would make it quite easy to go onto other balconies. Not the most secure set up. Room a bit dated but it was very clean. I have stayed in a room that overlooked the river and the path that the carriages and horses take. That was very...

The hotel is ideal for the town and the river. The room was spacious and clean but the decor and tv a little dated. The bonus was the balcony which allowed us to enjoy the fresh air and river view. From here we saw a mother and baby elk in the trees just opposite our room which was an unexpected...

Big clean room with a balcony that had a beautiful view of the river and mountains. This place was clean, nice, and a great price for Banff. I totally recommend it and would stay here again in a heart beat! Photos are the view from the room.

Went to Banff for a wedding and this place was awesome. Very clean and all the staff was so friendly. Had a great time and will stay there again. There was beautiful views from any room, it's wonderful to drink my morning coffee on a balcony with a mountain view!

We stay here a lot when we're in Banff. While the beds aren't that comfortable, you can't beat the location. You can park your car and practically walk anywhere which with the parking situation in Banff, can't be beat. It also doesn't have air conditioning which in normal circumstances isn't a big deal; however, we were there when it was...

The best thing about this hotel is the view. It sits on the river, which was just outside our room. We spent a lot of time outside the hotel, though. We did use the pool, hot tub, and steam room at a different hotel, all which were very nice but you have to cross a parking lot and parking garage...

very poor front desk service. We were there July16-17 2016 and the quality of service was very bad. We had trouble with the lock on our door and they were very slow in responding. The hotel next door shared all of the amenities such as breakfast with the people of the Bow View Lodge which was inconvenient.
