Great stay in Banff
We had a good couple of days , the room was clean and plenty of room for our Family of 5 . Location was awesome within walking distance of stores and restaurants. Hosts were friendly and quick to get us extra pillows when we requested . The next time we decide to have a little getaway in Banff we will book at this hotel again . Thanks for a great stay . Regards . Leonard Lane

Stay at the hotel
Good stay just very tiny older style rooms & screen kept falling off when one of us would try to go outside onto the balcony. Good location by the river & walking distance is also close to many stores & museums.

Good 6.0
We booked a family suite. There was no AC in the rooms, the suite was very tiny and we had to spent some of our times killing mosquitos in our suite

The pride that the management team, and staff, have for this hotel can be seen from the moment you walk into the hotel (hand cleaning station) to the time you walk into your room. The hotel is very clean. It has a great location, just next to the Bow River for walking, biking and canoe rentals. It’s also very close to the main walking and entertainment district in Banff. We parked our car and spent most of our time walking...everywhere. Our room was large and had an extra table for us to sit at to work. We also spent time on our balcony watching the river as the sun set. At dusk, the outside area was very quiet and we felt like we had all of Banff to ourselves. Rooms are basic and Yes, this hotel is a bit dated, but it is well maintained for its age.

Getting out again
We felt very safe staying here in this Covid 19 season. Every precaution was taken to make our stay both safe and enjoyable. Thanks

Poor 2.0
No room at the inn
Can't rate Bow View Lodge as it was closed. Find it hard to believe Hotels.com would book someone into a place that was closed. The staff at the hotel next door did their best to accommodate us, and they were great.

Exceptional 10.0
Great hotel option
All reservations had been moved to the Banff Park Lodge, which was a nice hotel. We ended up with an upgrade in the switch which was nice. The place was clean and not too old. Having the underground parking was convenient for luggage loading. Location is great, can walk to everything in town quickly.

Staff is great/Extra Charges not so much.
The overall stay at this establishment was great, friendly staff and clean rooms. However we were visiting during the first week the park was open since Covid-19 hit. Many of the amenities & shops were simply not open to guests. With that being said; Discounted prices should be in order or the additional charges $12/Night(Parking) and $10/Night(wifi) should be waived as common courtesy to the individuals supporting the park economically during these troubling times.
