Johnston Canyon Lodge & Bungalows has been proudly family owned and operated since 1926 and are placed at the trail-head of historic Johnston Canyon. We're ideally located just a 20 minute drive west of Banff on the scenic route to Lake Louise called the Bow Valley Parkway. The trail boasts over 7 cascading glacial waterfalls experienced from a series of suspended canyon catwalks, bridges and caves; it is a must-see natural attraction in Banff National Park. Within our lodge, a market/cafe and a restaurant bistro elevate your stay with us. Here the property is set within 5 acres of natural pine and spruce forest. It is truly the ideal central basecamp to explore all of the spectacular sites and natural wonders presented in the Banff-Lake Louise region. We look forward to meeting you!

My 5 year old daughter and I stayed here for 5 days 4 nights. I wasn’t entirely sure where to stay having never been to Banff before and my husband and his son were going to be in the backcountry while my daughter and I were here. I did know I wanted something as conveniently located as possible and that didn’t break the bank that also had good reviews. This place fit my price range and seemed to be located well enough, but the myriad mixed reviews left me wondering if it would end up being a mistake. It was not. I loved this place. We booked a red cottage and they upgraded us to the slightly larger brown one with a queen bed. Bungalows are nestled in the woods up on the hill above the front office/restaurant/trailheads so you are away from the bustle and the area up there is so nice as you drive through the small gravel drive weaving around the cottages to get to yours. The cottages are not luxury but they were good. The bed was clean and comfortable, loved the hardwood flooring. There was a nice size mini fridge for food and the bathroom looked updated but basic. Shower was great. The cottage was a little cold and the propane gas stove did not really heat it adequately (there were barely any flames and no way to adjust) so we ran the provided electric heater and it kept the room warm. Housekeeping was upon request and we had them come once to empty trash and sweep. Wifi was great and never went out, not even once which was great because cellular signal in the Banff area goes in and out depending on where you are. Location is fabulous. It’s about halfway between downtown Banff (about 1/2 drive) and Lake Louise (22 mins). It’s about 6 km off the Trans Canada highway. It was the perfect jumping off point to the myriad of places my daughter and I went and perfect for picking up Dad and brother from Paint Pots Trailhead (20 mins) at the end of their back country extravaganza. The front desk staff were so kind and helpful all week. The little cafe was great to grab coffee and a few snacks. The bistro food was decent. As others mentioned yes both are expensive but I actually found the prices comparable to Lake Louise Village. We ate at several places there as well. There is no where to eat really outside of downtown Banff except for Lake Louise Village and the Bungalow Bistro so expect to pay premium for both and plan your excursions accordingly. We would end a day near town and go there for dinner or we would end a day near Lake Louise and go to one of the village restaurants the seemed slightly more affordable. Portions everywhere were large and filling. The Canyon trails were fun and totally doable for a 5 year old (we did not manage Ink Pots). All in all we loved out stay here and had a great week. Not sure why there are some bad reviews for this place. It was everything I wanted and more than I expected. For reference, I am a frequent world traveler and have stayed many many places all over the world including luxury and very basic budget accommodation and I can say nothing bad about this place. Maybe it’s different during peak season but our stay was truly great and I will definitely be staying here again.

We came because we’ve never been to the area and wanted to hike Johnston Canyon. The cabins are rustic, and the one we were in was right on the river, which was lovely. One note I have is that they really need to step up the housekeeping. Perhaps if the floor was ever swept, there wouldn’t be a need for all the mousetraps? I’m also a little concerned about the previous guest; he must have some serious coordination deficiencies judging by the amount of urine crusted down the side of the toilet and the number of pills left scattered on the floor of the bedroom. After giving the place a thorough wipe-down, we also fixed the fridge handle that was falling off, the smoke detector that was dangling by a wire, and the kitchen faucet aerator that was spraying in all directions. I realize everyone is struggling with the limitations of Covid, but a global pandemic is not the time to be lackadaisical with the cleaning. I don’t mean to turn anyone off, the cabins are very quaint and charming. Forewarned is forearmed and I recommend arming yourself with some disinfectant wipes, a lidded, plastic bin to keep you non-refrigerated food in, and some slippers to keep your feet clean.

We stayed in the carriage house bungalow, which was very cool with it design and decor, although this is the best part of it. The cabins are historic and wood shingled and appear well cared for. There was a beautiful old historic car parked right outside, and the grounds are beautifully maintained with pretty gardens. The bed was ok but the pillows seemed very cheap and were not comfortable, although having more of them/ some extras without having to ask would have helped. The room had no trash bin in the bathroom which was annoying and no cup for toothbrushes, so we had to use one of the paper coffee cups which as you can imagine don't stay up well, and was also annoying. Unfortunately the coffee pot is a cheap single cup deal instead of a real pot which makes watery kind-of coffee. Although our room had a fireplace, it was blocked somehow and couldn't get air for a fire and had lots of black soot all along the pretty stone where you could see it was trying to get air from the room instead of the chimney. There bathtub is fabulous and fits the old style of the decor and the water was nice and hot. Our room was never really cleaned well although there bed was made up each day and there were enough towels and products, the tub ring wasn't cleaned, hair was left on the sink and tub and debris on the floor, it was pretty disappointing housekeeping. All of the staff while friendly, was very young, and would have benefited from a managerial presence, which we never saw.

We stayed 3 nights but should have left after the first. Door knob on bedroom door breaks within 5 minutes of our arrival. My kids are locked in the room until they permanently remove the door knob and lock for the duration of our stay. The person who entered our cabin was NOT wearing a mask. cobwebs everywhere! It made a deserted home look inviting. We had to kill 20-30 mosquito's everyday inside the cabin and we had no idea where they were coming from (and it wasn't the front door) Duct tape patching some holes in the walls. Staff at the front of the cafe NOT wearing masks, then handled used glasses and mugs from other customers and then (without washing their hands) proceed to make other customers orders (no gloves been worn either) . Requested towels, blankets and extra pillow 3 times(over a 2 day period of time) until I threaten a bad review before they did anything about it.
As far as I'm concerned they shouldn't be open for business until the cabins, the site are properly cleaned and they can get more staff. when 1 employee is a dishwasher, housekeeping and maintenance, you have real problems.

Cabins were cute, however I did not appreciate the almond on the floor that my dog tried to eat, nor the cigarette cellophane under the table that she licked clean. The mattress looked like it hasn't been updated since they opened the place. We brought an additional blanket for warmth which we used as the only blanket, because the duvet and cover were filthy. My partner and I are both in the hospitality industry, in Canmore and know that everyone is understaffed at the moment but that doesn't excuse the lack of cleanliness. I understand it was the last weekend for the resort and the staff were clearly checked out but that doesn't excuse the lack of service.
As the trip was for my partners birthday I wanted it to be special, and stress free. I was mortified that I picked this location for her special weekend. When booking it mentions that there are public BBQ's for use which we wanted to take advantage of, and as a precaution we brought all our own stuff for cooking and eating. I am thankful we did because we needed everything to BBQ as they did not have a lighter, utensils, plates, cups or cutlery in the unit.
Since we had the dog with us and it was raining we were unable to eat on the patio and had to order dinner to our room. We planned what we wanted from the menu in the room only to find out once we got to the restaurant that this was not the menu, they have the dinner specials on a board. When we asked the server what steak was served with the steak and shrimp she said "sirloin I think," for $35 I would like to know it is a better cut than sirloin. I decided to try the sizzling trout because it is their signature dish. The trout felt like it was steamed or boiled and came with no seasoning or sauces, a side of steamed veggies, (looked like Costco's frozen veggies), crunchy rice, ( tastes like uncle bens) and a double baked potato ( which was outstanding). The two meals came to over $100 which is sad because I could only eat a few bites of the fish which I added my own horseradish to, just to add some flavor. I would have rather driven home to Canmore and picked up food from a drive through for a quarter of the price and actually been satisfied. The following day we had no other choice but to go back to the restaurant again for breakfast. After waiting and being ignored by the waitress who passed by several times, we decided to go back to the cabin and cook what remaining food we had which consisted of garlic bread, salami, and potatoes. Had I actually seen a staff member or one would have actually acknowledged me I could have shared this feedback. Disaster weekend. Happy Birthday Sweetie!

Response from Timothy Nokes, General Manager at Johnston Canyon Lodge & Bungalows
Responded Jan 16, 2021
While we are always seeking ways to improve our service - and am happy to apologize or find compromise if we have let a guest down with expectations ... this review demands a response as it borders on ludracris. My main position is quite simple regarding running the boutique hotel... if you don't bring up matters to the manager or the supervisor at a restaurant or hotel then you haven't given them an opportunity to address your concern. First of all I am dubious that you "the reviewer'are indeed in the ' hospitality industry ' at all in Canmore otherwise you would know as one of the Bow Valley's associate companies that EVERYONE here is trying to support one another through the most challenging economic tsunami since WW11. All of our nightly rates were slashed by 50% from normal seasons giving local Albertans a chance in a lifetime to stay throughout the summer at rates that reflected the mid 1980's. Free hand sanitizer bottles provided in each cabin and throughout the entire summer operation - NOT A SINGLE COVID case from a guest or staff member because of the most thorough sanitizing policies in place. I was available all weekend at the property and you and 'birthday sweetie' could have easily reached out to discuss any matter with me. Your comment about the BBQ seriously makes me question if you have ever stayed at any property other than a campground. Why on earth would we supply cooking pots and pans, plates, cutlery, table clothe etc etc when the bungalow you stayed in clearly was advertised as no- cooking? With your logic I suppose we should have also suppled food and chef to cook on the BBQ we freely provide for guests. Secondly the steak you ate was an 8 oz triple AAA Alberta tenderloin with 6 large garlic jumbo shrimp and you complain about the $35..? I'm certain you and your partner frequent fast food drive throughs which is why that cost may have shocked you but in any normal restaurant - that dish would be closer to pushing $50. I am sorry the server was not aware of what cut the meat and didn't enquire to the chef. Perhaps it was because no other seasoned patron like yourself has asked. All of the food is made in house and we have had multiple return guests for the bungalows and the restaurant. To say you had 'no choice the following day but to go down for breakfast..?" I wasn't aware a staff member was forcing you by pitch fork to go back to the eating establishment. Its only a 20 minute drive to Banff or Lake Louise if you were so desperate ... At the end of day - we have over 10,000 guests every summer. 95% love it... some its not their style... and sometimes we mess up. However in this case, you're simply one of the painful guests that are unhappy and miserable from the outset. You had an amazing weekend of weather to cycle the Bow Valley Parkway almost exclusively - the trail to the falls and ink pots free of bus traffic and the masses to provide the most intimate hiking experience in over a century at this location. To Stay in heritage cabins at a fraction of the normal rate and yet... you had a disaster weekend. Hoteliers have a saying they keep close to their hearts... All Guests Create Happiness ; Some with they Arrive and Some They Leave.

We stayed at red cabin in June 2020 for 2 nights. The good: love location close to canyon, parking was fine, surrounded in quiet forest, good pressure in washroom.
The bad, well it is a cabin, that being said update required. First as is small cabin it should not have carpet, removed and laminate or vinyl plank flooring. As cabin is small carpet gets stained easily from foot traffic. For now one must bring slippers to keep feet off floor. The small fridge is nice, but froze everything, There is a small window by the bed, but don’t plan on this keeping you cool in July and August as no air conditioning.
There are 2 community barbecues, of which only 1 worked and only hot enough for hot dog cooking...... :(
You have covered sleeping in beautiful location, a little work by site owners can make this even better.

I have travelled throughout Canada, United States, Mexico and other third world countries. This is the most disgusting place I have ever stayed. I don’t believe that they actually rent this room, let alone what they charge. The pictures I attached give you an example of what you will find if you stay here. Mattress and box spring that are ripped, half a curtain on the window, rodent droppings, drips from light fixtures and disgusting stains all over the carpet await you at this hotel. We were afraid to take our shoes off the whole time we were there.

I was willing to accept the conditions of this hotel, because everyone is hurting due to the pandemic until I found out that their rates had gone down after I booked my room and I was not advise of this. The room I was in was reduced from $295 a night to $195 a night. The room with the kitchen was being rented for $570 for three nights. We inquired about changing our room to one with a kitchen upon our arrival and were told that we would have to pay an additional $75 a night, even though they were well aware that they were offering a rate well below what I was already paying.

When I asked about compensation for the reduced rates and disgusting room the manager asked me to leave. The manager told me if I left she would return my money for the final night, but she would not change my rate for the three days we stayed at the hotel.

We left and stayed in a clean, fresh smelling room for less than we would have paid here.

Firstly I have to correct this guest that Canada, United States and Mexico are actually not third world countries. This guest had become very irritated once she realized that we initiated a special rate campaign while she was booked here and soon demanded compensation. As it was our rates were already 50% of what we normally charge. This year it is entirely Albertans and Canadians visiting and if booking a three day reservation - the rates became even more attractive. She then had come down to the front desk and began yelling at the front desk staff demanding compensation with an absurd logic that " when she stayed in Jasper and it rained - they compensated her room night!" I pondered, if that is the case are we to charge MORE for the CABIN because you had immaculate sunny days here?? She lastly threatened if she did not get compensated she would destroy us on social media. This is of course after her being here for two days without any complaints with her family enjoying the hiking trail, the quiet and Bow Valley Parkway free of cars. At this stage she was no longer behaving reasonably while being very disrespectful to our amazing staff. She transformed from being a 'valued Guest' to a bully and a professional complainer who intimidates hoteliers and staff to get her way. I informed my front desk supervisor that she was welcome to leave the property and we would not charge her a cancellation fee nor for her last nights booking. We do not want people staying here that are not enjoying themselves. This seemed to placate her volcanic anger. We have upwards of 12,000 guests annually and unfortunately despite the best efforts of amazing staff and senior management you cannot make everyone happy. .. Even if they have geographical challenges.

Stayed in a small bungalow Sept 19-21, 2022.

Apparently its the end of their season coming up so they were out of stock on food items in the Bistro (no decaf coffee, no herbal tea or jam left for toast to name a few items we encountered).
The staff were incredibly friendly but sparse.

When we arrived at 4:15 pm, we were checked into our cabin right away only to find it hadn’t been cleaned from the previous occupants. The manager was apologetic & offered us complimentary food & drinks at the Bistro while we waited for it to be cleaned.

Once in our room it was very apparent that the staff shortages extended to to the cleaning & maintenance. Our room had clean sheets & towels and a quick vacuum of high traffic areas but that was it. It was dirty in every corner and under the furniture. Nothing seemingly gets moved and washed between occupants. The baseboards, walls & windows sills are loaded with dust & dirt. Cob webs dangling from the ceiling.

We moved the couch away from the wall slightly to better view the tv, only to see a mound of crumbs/dead bugs/dust behind the couch. The bathroom walls had splash & drip marks, the tub & toilet needed a good scrubbing. They just looked grubby. See pictures below. Im not being picky. I can’t think of a hotel I’ve stayed at that was this neglected and I travel a lot.

To charge $400 a night you can be quaint & a bit shabby rustic, but not dirty. Very disappointing level of cleanliness especially post Covid.

The Bistro was in the same condition. Dust on every baseboard, The sunlight revealed it was an inch thick under the hostesses podium at the entrance. No had moved that thing and vacuumed underneath it in months. There were dead flies & dust on the window sills next to dining tables.

Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful but seemingly there’s just not enough of them to properly manage & maintain this resort.

Location is second to none. Cabins are freshly painted and so cute outside, however inside, we were a bit disappointed: our floor was so dirty ( pebbles, bits of paper and stains) For this resort's reputation, location and price, we expected much better.
Office staff were friendly.
Restaurant staff were also very nice even though they cannot (will not?) serve you coffee after 6pm dinner because coffee bar staff have left.
Scenery/location made up for any disappointment but really not sure we will return to this resort

We enjoyed the beautiful setting of our cabin. The cabin itself was very comfortable, as were the beds and bedding. The gas stove kept the main rooms warm, and the shower had plenty of hot water. The kitchen was functional however it lacked some essentials needed to make basic meals: there were no cloths, no pot with a lid to boil water, no tea pot and no coffee filters that fit the coffee machine. We did ask for these, but only some items were delivered. Also, the pull out bed needed cleaning and some bedding.
