Rocky Mountain Deal
Often people think it’s expensive to stay in Banff but that’s not always the case.
This past weekend my sister and I stayed at the Tunnel Mountain Resort. We had a one bedroom condo with a wood burning fireplace, full kitchen, bathroom, jacuzzi, dining area, pull out couch, balcony and separate bedroom. Despite it being the Alberta public school winter break, we still only paid a total of $184.00 for both Sunday and Monday night.
Although our condo could do with some refurbishing, it was clean and spacious with a comfortable bed. The management even included some extras such as a generous portion of firewood.
Earlier we had checked out their Executive Suite. It was brand spanking new with a steam shower, electric fireplace, microwave and small fridge. Although it was a more luxurious suite, my sister and I chose the more spacious condo with the kitchen.
Resort facilities include a pool, exercise room, bbqs, hot tubs and sauna, not to mention wonderful views. The staff were friendly and accommodating.
My sister found this deal on Expedia.ca.
I’ve left the best to last. On our first night a herd of Elk made an appearance right in front of our balcony. You just gotta love that Rocky Mountain experience.
