The Dorothy Motel

Inspired by the explorers and trailblazers of the past The Dorothy Motel is accommodation made simple; for the explorers and trailblazers of today.

The Dorothy Motel is Banff’s first boutique motel offering ‘accommodation 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 forest with the majestic Cascade Mountain in the background.

The 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, and complimentary Wi-Fi and parking. The bathrooms offer a stand-up shower, hairdryer and  bath products from Rocky Mountain Soap. And yes, Banff’s newest motel is a pet-friendly, so take your furry friends 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).
