    Hotel is nicely decorated and has a good vibe. Hotel rooms were clean and welcoming. We were first placed in room 205. The air conditioner froze up and did not work on our first night, but front desk offered a fan which we placed in the open window that night to keep cool. They moved us to a new room the next morning. The new room faced the outdoor hot tubs, so we needed to keep the curtain closed and the alarm clock with phone charging ports was missing in this room. Our second room did not have maid service to take out garbage, leave fresh towels or take out garbage the second or third night. A perk was that breakfast is provided, however, it consisted of pancakes, scrambled eggs and sausages every morning. The usual cereal, yogurt, bagels, banana bread and bread were available as well. This is convenient with kids because all they want is a pancake or piece of toast. The coffee is great. Bikes are available for rent. It is a ten minute walk down Banff Ave so not as convenient as closer hotels, but also quieter. They offer complimentary s’more kits to roast at the fire tables outside near the hot tubs. The kids enjoyed this very much. The front desk staff were fabulous and all had great customer service skills and worked to answer all questions and solved problems. Maid service could possibly be cut back due to covid? I understand that there is a huge shortage of workers to fill most jobs in Banff right now, so this could be part of the problem.

    Do not have a room close to the elevator or ice machine. You will hear the noise in your room. Ceiling is sloped. You will hit your head on the ceiling, when getting into the bed.

    The Canalta Lodge was overall a lovely little place to stay! Pros: - Friendly staff members. - Modern rooms, loved the style. - Fair pricing. - The hot tub was open - woohoo! - Included breakfast in the morning was good. Cons: - Bad Wifi reception - we had to use a hotspot from one of our phones the entire time. - Toilet paper roll was about 5 feet away from the toilet, so unless you have Mr. Gadget extendable arms - good luck with that. - Wouldn't take a deposit from a debit card upon check in & we had to go find an ATM to get cash (any other hotel we've been to has accepted a debit deposit & simply refunded the amount the next day). All in all, we enjoyed our visit & would recommend staying here / will likely be back again in the future!

    Loved the decor, very clean, substantial breakfast. We were thrilled to be able to book a hot pool for ourselves. Considering covid restrictions, the hotel did well providing both service and safety.

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was a great corner room with a view of the mountains. Beautiful to look out to. It was unfortunate that we were not informed that the hot tubs were open (by appointment only) as I had inquired and received a response the day before the covid restrictions changed that allowed the tubs to be open. The response was not updated to include the most recent information.
