I booked a king room with a view of the bow river Instead Expedia and Bow view lodge moved me without consent to looking over the dingy parking lot I don’t think I will book through Expedia ever again People should get what they pay for and have ordered

It's an old property that could use some update, but for the price it was great. It was clean, had a small fridge, comfortable bed, very helpful staff and is located far enough from the railways to make the nights bearable. I wish they had some picnic tables, because the indoor dining in Banff was closed at the time and some better priced breakfast options. Other than that I had no complaints.
