Inexpensive and quiet

A decent place to make a base camp to explore the neighbouring park areas and Banff townsite.

old & tired room

Hotel staff were professional & helpful, although they forgot to activate our room keys so we had to backtrack all the way back to the check-in desk. Housekeeping staff were great! We rented a one bedroom condo...it was really small for the 3 of us, but we made it work. The condo is worn & dated & in need of some repairs/upgrading (their pics online look more modern & spacious but not the unit we were in...furniture was old and everything was cramped together...it felt grungy). The kitchen was well equipped but could use some proper bowls...hard to have cereal in a pudding dish! Some of the utensils had food on them (yuck!) The shower had great water pressure...the bathroom could use better lighting though. There was mold in the bathroom & bedroom windowsill. The couch was old & the springs on the sofabed were visible and it looked to be very uncomfortable...thankfully I anticipated this & brought a foamy to put on it...it helped some but not much. Only one very thin blanket was provided for the extra person...we shouldn't have to ask for extra when the booking clearly stated 3 people in the room. The bedroom was really tight for space with no dresser and only one side table...it felt really cramped with only about a foot of space on all sides. I suggest you request an upper suite as we were on the lower level and we could hear every footstep above us...it sounded like they were continuously stomping their feet...it got annoying. Staff provided a dog bed, treats and 'a' bowl for our dog. We thought that was really nice, although 2 bowls would have been better (1 for food, 1 for water!). Location was right off the freeway & a quick drive into Banff. The resort offered a free shuttle into town but that didn't work for us as we had our dog. Overall I would compare this resort hotel around the same as a low end hotel (about a 2 1/2 out of 5)...don't expect a fancy resort as this is definitely not. This hotel worked for us as it was a long weekend and it was difficult to find a pet friendly hotel. The price was reasonable (I found a deal online) & it allowed us to bring our dog...don't think I would stay again though.

Spacious and comfortable

They gave us a free upgrade but even without it we would have been very happy here. The accommodations were everything we could hace asked for and the exercise facilties were particularly welcome on a dreary day. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Nice Resort

Our room here was large and very comfortable with many amenities. The resort itself was very nice with a pool an outdoor hot tub , patio , exercise room , restaurants etc. As soon as we descended the steps after leaving our room we had an awesome view of a beautiful mountain looming above us ..... next time we will ask for a room with a view facing the mountain ! This hotel is in a quiet area just outside of town so you are out of the hustle and bustle but still close to downtown shops and restaurants.

Good value and good location

Desk staff enthusiastic. They were college interns from around Canada and commonwealth countries. Location was on entering edge of town with a little more rural feeling. Room was very basic.

Mountain Splendor

Banff Rocky Mountain Resort is located in a beautiful, quiet, and peaceful setting away from the hustle and bustle of Banff town-site. They have a free shuttle to Banff which is only a few minutes away. The condo provided everything we needed to cook all our own meals. They have an excellent barbecue area with many picnic tables to choose from. The one bedroom condo was very clean and spacious for four people. They have two pools and a hot-tub which were very clean. Also, there is very nice landscaping around the outside pool.

Very small

We booked a 1 bedroom suite at the Rocky Mountain Resort, for 4 people. The bedroom essentially was just a tiny bit larger than the queen bed. It was difficult to open the closet doors! The sofa bed opened up into the living room but there wasn't even room for luggage. The kitchen was reasonably equipped, though the table had to be moved every time we had a meal. The best part about the room was that it was in Banff.
