This is the second time my family has stayed at the Banff Boundary Lodge.

First off, the location is excellent. Right off the highway and only a few minutes away from the park gates. For anyone on a budget, this is only a 20 minute drive from Banff, so well worth staying here to save some big dollars compared to most Banff accommodations.

We ended up being late getting there, and our phone rang. My wife was concerned it was the Lodge calling to advise we had lost our room. It was actually the staff calling to give us a road report! Amazing! They provided us with the process for checking in after hours, and we were all set.

We arrived on time, and were given a complimentary upgrade (off peak season). Our Expedia rate was $185 for two nights. Our suite on the main floor had a full kitchen, living room with gas fireplace, dining area and half bath. A set of stairs led up to the main bathroom, a spare room with double bed, and the master with a KING size bed. For three adults and a 5 year old, this was heaven!

As noted, you are responsible for your own dishes/garbage removal, but everything else is taken care of.

The only drawback we had while staying there was that the hot tub closes at 9:30pm, which in the mountains is just plain too early. We typically didn't get back to the Lodge till 9pm or so, and were unable to enjoy a soak.

The Banff Boundary Lodge is now on our list of "regular" spots.

Room Tip: The highway can generate some noise, so if you are a super light sleeper, ask for a room facing away from the highway. If you are mobility challenged, ask for rooms right off the parking lot.

This is our regular stay when we go to Canmore. This property is not a hotel but a condo rental. You are responsible for cleaning up after yourself, (dishwasher and regular garbage removal).
The property is almost next door to Banff, and very affordable and clean. We have never had any issues with our stays.

Pet friendly is a huge plus for this property. If your looking for the ultra in resort and huge amount of extra luxuries this is not your place. If you want a fairly quiet (even though the hotel is located right next to the highway) and affordable place this your stop.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the back if you want the quiet with the view of the mountains

This is an average ok place stayed here 3x times always for skiing purpose etc. it does the job & is good value for money.
The hot tub we never used because of it's awkward location behind the reception desk!
But the bath & hot water in our apartment was good enough!
We will return again for it's handy location right by the border of Banff & for the value.
Very clean & the kitchen was we equipped.

Stayed: March 2014

This was a great find regarding location being pretty much in Canmore and extremely close to Banff. The condo was clean and was perfect for a family travelling.

The kitchen was not well stocked and this made cooking frustrating. There is an oven, yet no baking tray/dish so couldn't use the oven. There were no tongs and only plastic cooking utensils which made barbecuing difficult. Some people may not think this is a big deal but the extremely limited stocked kitchen caused frustrations.

The service was very friendly and we would return here based on the price and location.

It is perfect for a family with kids or even two families travelling together. We got two two-bedroom condos, and they worked perfectly for two families. They were very close together as requested and rooms were clean, comfortable, and nice. It is also great for the price and has a lovely view of the Canmore mountains. Not that far from Canmore town center either, and definitely an awesome place to stay. No AC, but the chill at night kept it nice.
