The Dorothy Motel

The Dorothy Motel

The Dorothy Motel is Banff’s first boutique motel offering ‘accommodations made simple’. Choose from a Superior Hotel Room, with either 1 King or 2 Queen Beds. This quaint motel, peacefully located at the start of Banff Avenue, is surrounded by forests with the majestic Cascade Mountain in the background.

Our rooms include everything you need for your next mountain retreat: a mini-refrigerator and microwave, in-room coffee and tea to get you kickstarted for the day, in-room safe, air conditioning, complimentary Wi-Fi and parking. The bathrooms offer a stand-up shower, hairdryer and natural soaps from Rocky Mountain Soap. And yes, Banff’s newest motel is pet-friendly, so feel free to bring your dog with you.

Bring your own bicycles, or rent some from Ultimate Sports. On-site bike storage and a fix-it station are available as well. And after a day of exploring the stunning scenery of Banff enjoy the evening relaxing in the courtyard.

Check-in using your mobile phone or in person at the Banff Caribou Lodge & Spa, just down the street (521 Banff Avenue).
