Great Ski Trip

For the price and proximity to ski resorts in Banff this is the perfect place to crash. We stayed for a weekend and then skied Sunshine Resort. Just about a 30 minute drive away I really enjoyed staying here. The roof hot-tubs are pretty incredible and make for a great time relaxing after a long day of skiing and meeting other travelers.

Go eat at Eddie Burgers while staying here. Much cheaper than some of the restaurants in the hotel.

It's Alright I Guess

Room had a funky smell and there were stains from old spills on several surfaces (lampshade, wall). Many HUGE hairs in one of the drawers! We stayed 2 nights, maids did not replace one of our coffee cups on clean up, just left old one full of coffee. Bathroom was in poor condition with beat-up lino and a grungy shower (great water pressure though.) They had a great, well maintained outdoor hot pool. Our walk through the other building revealed it was even more run down than ours, though. Restaurant was okay, nothing special. Decent distance from town, about 1.2km walk into the shopping district. Staff are friendly and helpful. For $150 a night in Banff, this is about what you can expect I think.

Not staying here again

After having stayed at the Fox, this was a dismal experience. The decor is dated and nothing to write home about. The room felt musty and not clean. Not impressed at all with the staff.

Great Hotel for the Price that we Paid

We were basically pleased with the hotel. The front area beautiful with flowers and manicured lawn. The outer appearance rustic and charming. But there were some issues. The housekeeper forgot to include 4 sets of towels each night (as there were 4 of us in one room) and I had to call front desk 2 nights in a row for the extra towels. The walls of our room were dusty, the outdated TV could not turn on and the carpet was lifting up. The bathroom is crampy and small. The mattress on the bed was ill fitting (a double size mattress thrown on top of a queen size mattress.) The hallways were noisey as they are made of wood planks. I think that with some renovations and refurbishing, the property could be restored as a first class resort. But, all in all, it was okay and we would prebably stay there again. We got such a good deal and the price was right for us. So, hopefully you will take this constructive criticism in stride.

Must go to Johnston Canyon and take the 1/2 mile hike to view the waterfall. Lake Louise was awesome. Peyto Lake (on the way to Columbia Icefields) was spectacular. Downtown Banff full of charm and nostalgia. The Cascade Gardens beautiful.

Affordable - nice hot tub!

The hotel is good - but it is a maze - from our room to the lobby was quite the trek - and confusing - not only for us but also for others - we were in hallways with people askign "do you knwo where C is or do you know where B is".
