It was Clean, updated & modern…the Floor really takes some getting used to… not having a Working Ice Machine on the property is a Problem … saying you have to walk up the street to Get Ice ?? Was easier to just go buy it at the Esso

I love the easy access to this property from the entrance to Banff. We really love the set up - fridge, table, microwave etc. The Rocky Mountain Soap stuff is AMAZING please always keep that. Beds are comfy etc. Only issue is the coffee - we had to ask for more for second day. But, the staff at the Caribou was amazingly helpful. Loved that we got to keep a mug.
