We spent a week at the Banff Rocky Mountain Resort during the 3rd week of July. A resort conveniently located a couple of miles from downtown Banff. Across the street from the resort is a beautiful view of the mountains. We traveled there with family and used our timeshare to exchange for rooms.
Our rooms were located side by side in the building across the parking lot from the lobby. The location of the rooms made it very convenient for breakfast in the morning. We were on the first floor and had a modest view of the mountains from the room.
The rooms themselves are very small. Nothing fancy and a little dated. Beds were comfortable. Small kitchen that has a table for two. It adjoins the living room where there is a couch and TV along with a fireplace. The room was clean with no air conditioning which is not required since the evenings get comfortably cool which makes for nice sleeping weather.
We had an issue with water leaking from our ceiling with some of the plaster falling in the kitchen. Facility maintenance was quick to respond and correct the problem with the 2nd floor unit. They fixed the problem and cleaned up our unit before they left.
The breakfast buffet offered was very good - great variety and good price. You can choose the buffet or order off of the menu and have a fresh breakfast made for you. Quality and pricing of the breakfasts were very good.
They have a nice workout facility, small but enough equipment and very clean.
They have an indoor pool and also an outside Jacuzzi. The Jacuzzi is pretty big and can hold about a dozen people. The indoor pool is adequate, somewhat dated but does the job.
All in all, this is a nice place to stay but don't expect lavish accomodations
