In past years I have stayed at the Douglas Fir 20-30 times and found the resort a nice place to stay. For the past several years I have stayed elsewhere as the customer service, management, cost and general maintenance at the resort went down hill. I stayed here for one night in September as my usual hotel was full. The...

I went with my two girlfriends and our 5 kids. We stayed in their little chalets. It was great for the kids. Lots to do. The facility is a little dated, but was very clean. The amenities are what made it for us.

We came for the reasonable prices, the bus pass to town, and the full kitchen. We will be coming back for the friendly service and the real fireplace! The updates to the room are strategic. Updated tub and shower. Updated entertainment so you can stream from your laptop. Updated bed, not the best EVER, but on the newer side and...

Wi-Fi was not very good, slow and kept dropping. Deck was in a bit of disrepair but OK to spend a bit of...

Based on the reviews, we decided to spend our 10th wedding anniversary here instead of camping up the hill that we normally do. Our room was a condo suite with one heck of a view. Queen bed, wood burning fireplace, big flat screen tv, full kitchen, nice balcony with did I say one heck of a great view. The place...

This is our second time visiting this location. Our son is now 7 and we picked it for our stay in Banff because it has a two awesome indoor water slides and an amazing indoor multi-story playground. It's the perfect way to spend some quality family time before or after sightseeing adventures, or on a rainy day. Visiting in August,...

Located approximately one mile uphill from town, this motel offers large, fully furnished suites with full kitchen, dining area, and sleeper sofa. a bundle of split wood is provided for the in-room fireplace. The only window was a large sliding door overlooking the road, so privacy is minimal. Parking for motel rooms is an underground garage with an elevator, convenient...
