The hotel has what you need for a short stay. The room was very clean if a little small, with a nice bathroom. It is within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants of Banff. The staff were all friendly and efficient. Breakfast was fine with a couple of niggles. The scrambled egg was over cooked and dumped into one of those large rectangular stainless steel warming bins, so when you get it out it's all in a solid lump. Does anybody actually like scrambled egg like this? The butter and preserves are served in little dishes with 3 pats of butter even on tables for four. Insufficient of course and you have to ask for more and wait. Why? However the fresh fruit salad and the bacon are good. Small things that wouldn't stop me from staying again if I was in Banff. The pillows are very high and therefore uncomfortable in my opinion. However when I asked if they had any flatter ones they were delivered by the time I got back to my room.

Friendly staff, very clean room and bathroom, easy check-in, pretty courtyard where hot pools were located. Great breakfast, pleasant servers, lots of choice. On main strip, close to shopping and town activities. Would definitely recommend and would stay again!

Room Tip: Rooms opening on courtyard can be noisy if pools are full. Some rooms have balconies which is nice...

I recently stayed here for seven nights during my third trip to Banff. Firstly, I liked the location - it's nearer town than most of the hotels along Banff Avenue (at the crossroads of Moose Street) but there is a Roam bus stop (No. 5) just 1 minutes walk down from the hotel and that provides easy access to the whole area for $2 a ride. The staff were nothing but helpful/courteous during the whole stay - they were able to store my luggage on the last day with no problems. My room was very clean and I heard very little noise (I'm a light sleeper). Perhaps it was the location or time of year but I had no complaints. The breakfast is served downstairs - there is a lift and toilets near by. The lack of windows was made up for by the good food - I recommend the granola which I understand they make in-house. The hot-tubs looked very inviting but overlooked by all the rooms if you're the shy type. They seemed pretty quiet throughout the week but were available until 10pm which is line with their noise curfew. I'm sorry I didn't use them. There is an in-house coffee shop next to the foyer if you fancy a coffee better than the machine in your room - it must be good becuase they got quite a bit of trade from passers-by. I'd have no problem in returning to this hotel (which was every bit as good as The Caribou and for less money). Well done!!

My wife and I made a short visit to Banff, because we were in Calgary at an event for a few days. When we arrived on a Tuesday evening in early May; the hotel was not busy. The front desk person was friendly and efficient. We learned that they upgraded us to a superior queen category. Our hotel room was really two rooms; a bedroom and a living room joined by a small hallway. The hallway had two sinks and a door to the bathroom containing the toilet and shower. Everything was clean. Be aware that the hotel corridors are outdoors. The plumbing was noisier than average and the room let in more exterior noise than we liked. The room lighting left the room a bit dim. The location of the hotel was very good for strolling along Banff avenue.

From the minute you walk into Aspen Lodge, you know the place has character. Staff are friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and hot tubs are unbeatable. The TVs are ancient, but if you're in Banff to watch TV, you're doing it wrong.

Great spot for a weekend getaway every few months!
