PLUS - The hotel is perfectly located as it is very close to shopping and entertainment in the center of town. I have stayed here often because price is important to me. The hotel is not luxurious but I have always had a comfortable bed, a fridge and the rooms are clean.I noted that the bathroom was renovated since the...

We stopped here for one night on our road trip , the room was dated and very noisy as it was on the main street , the location was good but as Banff is not vey big i don't think it really matters. There is no breakfast and as we were leaving early the next day we had to walk...

Location was very good, but I was very disappointed with our room. We checked in on Christmas day and the front desk clerk who checked us in was very friendly, kudos to him( didn't get his name!).Went to the room and it was very warm so I adjusted the temp to about 20C and then went for a movie and...

the red carpet inn is clean and perfect for people not driving. day tours and airport shuttles pick us right from the doorstep of the hotel. there are public buses(we didnt use), and the restaurants and souvenir shops are only 5 minutes away! affordable for the location.

We highly recommend the Red Carpet Inn. We've been staying here for several seasons (we ski & hike) with varying lengths of stay (some quite long), ideally situated and a convenient short walk from downtown. We can't rate this place highly enough, all the staff are personable, super friendly and helpful - knowledgeable, really wonderful. They can't do enough for...

We have never stayed at a hotel that was not Red Carpet Inn, or Irwins Mountain Inn. We come to Banff at least 4 times a year, as a birthday present my boyfriend booked Red Carpet inn in September for a weekend in November. He booked the Fireplace Jacuzzi suite, upon arrival we were notified that "there was a problem...

Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback! We sincerely apologize for the Jacuzzi being down during your most recent stay. While of course we cannot know what you have read online about the tub being down, but it did in fact go down sometime in September and we are pleased to state the replacement tub has now...

Upon arrival we were greeted by Jamie at the front desk. Super friendly. As the hotel wasn't busy he moved us to the biggest room at the hotel for the same price. Gave us suggestions on best places to eat. Gave us a 2 for 1 coupon for El Toro restaurant next door. Room spotless. Huge window facing Sulphur mountain....

Check in went well, elevator was a bit slow, hall ways gave the impression of an old musty hotel. Once in the room I was pleasantly surprised at the nice renos including updated beds and furniture. We had a small balcony overlooking the street and the Christmas lights on the big evergreens were gorgeous! Hot tub looked nice but we...

My Husband and I stayed for 2 nights on our route to find snow, the hotel staff were very helpful and the room was lovely. We will stay again and recommend this hotel to anyone. You do have a lot of young adults staying because of the skiing and snow boarding, but to be fair they seemed a polite group.
