We stayed there for one night while we had initially intended for two. Our room was dark and depressing - dark floors, curtains and walls. We had booked a room for 4 and two of us slept on the most lumpy pull out couch imaginable. I got up at 5 am and headed to the streets of Banff just to... More

It's a relatively inexpensive bed in a very expensive town. We pricelined a king room in August for $150/night. The location is right on the main drag - that's either good or bad depending on what you're looking for. Me personally would rather be a bit removed. We were awoken several times throughout the night by bottles crashing into a... More

The location is perfect - right in the middle of the action in Banff - shops, food, etc. The hotel and rooms are dated, tiny, clean,... More

Since you're in Banff, you're probably not going to spend much time in your room, so this is basically ok. But the room is very small, with beat up furniture and a tiny tub. No closet, no drawers for clothes and a very small bed. Their attempt at room decor is bizarre with oriental, modern and early American all taking... More

I was touring some friends through Banff (I am from Jasper) and we booked on Hotwire.com. We accidentally booked for 2 people instead of 4 as we were booking from our phones. Upon arrival, they basically told us we were hooped and that if we called Hotwire they would instruct them not to refund or move us. They offered us... More

Pro's - well equipped (flatscreen TV, coffeemaker, mini fridge, clock radio), great location (room at the back, not on noisy front street), good WiFi, neat & clean Con's - no parking (public parking nearby, 5h free), dated rooms, no airco, lightswitches don't work Dated but still reasonable value for money due to location
