“Good place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2016

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in July, good clean hotel in walking distance of Downtown, although they do give you free bus passes.
Only downside is the bar and restaurant are run sepsratly from the hotel, so you may have to que and can't just walk in and have a drink or bring a drink into the reception area. This was not a problem when we stayed but could be an issue if busy.

Though not off the beaten path, the Banff Caribou Lodge and Spa has what you need to enjoy your Banff stay. Accommodations are clean, the staff knowledgeable and friendly. My friends and I found walking to the center of Banff an easy stroll but the town has great public transportation and one gets complimentary passes from the hotel if walking isn't on your agenda. But don't most of us come to Banff for the abundant outdoor activities. The Keg Restaurant menu offers many food and wine choices. There is a spa located in the facility and also a very handy self serve laundry.

Spent one night here - ate at restaurant for dinner which was quite good but very crowded. Breakfast buffet was good. Fitness center was small but good - pool looked fun for kids. Rooms comfortable and clean. On the main drag though a bit at the end so a walk to the heart of Banff town. But as a stopover on way into the Natl Park and on to Lake Louise, this was a good pick.

Awesome location (downtown) and the breakfast was great. The rooms are very small but were clean. There's a pool and hot tub which is a bonus and the staff was very friendly. I would definitely go back.

We liked this property very much and would recommend it to friends. The front desk was very helpful. The restaurant had very good food and the breakfast was included. A little closer to the center of town would be nice, but not to bad a walk to get there. Also a bus runs past the place if you would like to use it.

This hotel is a good place to stay. Roomy rooms, great restaurant, helpful staff, right near the bus stop for the town (which is close enough that we walked most of the time anyway) and the hotel gave us free bus passes which came in handy when it rained.
There are LOTS of hotels and other places to say in Banff, and I don't know how much this one cost since it was included in the Rocky Mountaineer tour we took, but I would definitely seek this one out again if we go back to Banff.

Room Tip: We loved our room just up the short steps near the registration desk to the second floor.
