My wife and I stayed here and thinking the a hotel in the middle of Down Town Banff couldn't be all that bad but it was a bit disappointing. I am not picky at all. I don't care that there is no lobby and only a small front desk to check I and out of. I don't care that the...

Perfect location in the heart of town, for a very reasonable price. We stayed in a king bed room which was very comfortable with a nice clean bathroom, fridge and coffee machine. Great service from everyone at the front desk and will definitely be staying here again.

Had a double single-bed room over looking Banff Ave. Room isn't big but was simple and worked great! Wifi, hdtv with cable, 2nd floor of the building. The hotel was cheap and parking around the corner was free. I'll stay again!

I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed totally. Especially this is a little bit cheaper than other hotels. I was a little surprised at the reception. It was so small that I thought it was rather a kiosk. Getting earlier than check-in time, they kept my luggage. But there's no locker. If you don't care of breakfast service, this...

You can't beat the location, you're right in the middle of everything. They do have heated underground parking for about a 5$ fee, but if you want to use your car, parking in the free lot behind the hotel was fine for us. Rooms were clean and quiet (we went during the week) and we were on the third floor,...

We stayed one night at the end of June on a roadtrip. First off the location is great. Right on the main street in Banff and walking distance to restaurants, shops, etc. Its awkward because of a couple of reasons. One the parking is a couple blocks away and two, to get to the room, you take an elevator which...

Banff is pricey, and unless you are staying in a hostel, the prices at this hotel are your best budget option. The location is great. The rooms are basic but adequate, especially considering what budget means in other areas of the world. Lots of jacks for charging electronics, cable, flat screen tv, coffee maker, good bed and shower, excellent hot...

The hotel is on the second floor of a retail building. Very old building but maintained well. Parking was a little disconcerting since we had to park in a free public ramp about a block away. It meant having to carry all of our luggage from the ramp to the hotel. The room was very small but we were only...

We spent three nights at this property and loved being in the middle of downtown Banff. We did enjoyed the charm of an older property. Rooms are adequate but clean. We had no problem with noise but that could be due to the fact that it was not high season. The staff is very friendly. We had a problem with...
